The best thing about this hotel is their staff. I found them extremely friendly and accommodating. Lot of food variety at breakfast and there is an option for one to sit outdoors. Some studio apartments seem more spacious than others and half the front windows open towards a parking lot which is nice but the rest have another building in front which restricts one's view.
The Alrigga metro station is 750 meters away and takes a few minutes to reach on foot. Couple of very nice Arab restaurants nearby, I would recommend the one on the corner, near the metro station. A general store right opposite and across the road has most of your daily needs and supplies. For cheap souvenir/gift shopping there is a store called "the discount centre" at about two o'clock (North-East) from the front of the hotel. The food at the two Arab restaurants in front was a little difficult to digest for me.
The room sound insulation needs a lot of attention as late night movements in other rooms can be quite disturbing.
The kitchen in the studio apartment is very small and gets cluttered up because of lack of counter space. There is potential and better planning can sort things out. Frankly I couldn't use the kitchen much because of its tiny size. There is no washing machine in the kitchen and no toaster or microwave. So what does the kitchen have? Two burner stove and an electric kettle.
The charge for the use of internet seems a little out of place as most of the hotels all over the world have free wi-fi usage. A rich place like Dubai should show more of its hospitality.
