We stayed here for one night after spending one night in another hotel. This hotel had great customer service, clean rooms, and a nice lobby! We had room service for dinner and it was very good! It is also very close to the airport, so if you are just in town for a layover this is a very good option!

I arrived late in the evening, after eid, feeling very tired after a long flight.

Hotel very polite and efficient - processed my checkin swiftly and I got to my room (upgraded a nice surprise) just in time to collapse into my luxurious bed. Slept like a log and woke up to a beautiful day in Dubai.
Ate a full breakfast couldnt reeally have asked for any more and and headed back to the airport.
Great hotel in convenient location, with nice staff.
Thanks

It is a good hotel. Hotel facilities are nice and the staff are very friendly. They do take good care of the guests.This is a refreshing thing to note. I did not have the opportunity and time to use all their amenities and so, I am not in a position to comment on their food, gym, etc.

Room Tip: it is good hotel. Overall service quality is good.

Very well organized conference facility, the Food was excellent. right next to the airport (5min). the main disadvantage is far away from down town, which is good if you want to keep the participants committed..

Room Tip: ask for a quite room

Clean comfortable rooms though a little on the small side for a hotel of this class rating, excellent sound proofing makes the airport seem a lot farther away.

Have a pick up from the airport service, and limos that will take you wherever you need to go for a little bit more than the local taxis, but it is just so much nicer travelling and arriving at your destination in a Jaguar, Merc or Top of the range 4x4!

Good room service menus, excellent buffet selection that changes each night of the week in Choices Restaurant, great Thai restaurant, great service ..... a laundry service that delivers back to you several hours faster than it promises.

The only real downside of this hotel is that internet access is not free, and is pretty pricey.

Room Tip: To get a really good nights sleep don't have a room on the atrium you get piano music all evenin...

This is the second time I've stayed here and generally have found it ok and pretty comfortable. There are some really nice restaurants but all pretty expensive. The pool area is nice and the rooms are comfortable. All the staff I encountered were extremely helpful. My biggest gripe from a hotel where you are paying more than €200 per night is that they charge for using the wifi - €5 per hour - even if you want to print off a boarding pass they will charge for it. This to me is petty and is the reason I won't be coming back. In such a competitive market as Dubai why pay for something that is provided free elsewhere .
