Baniyas Square by Le Meridien
Ranked #504 of 561 Hotels in Dubai
Reviewed January 27, 2007

I booked this hotel based on Expedia rating it as a 5* property. The building is extremely old and the room I was given had cockroaches in it. Upon discovering these, I was offered another room on a different floor, however I didn't feel that the residence's cleanliness standards were up to scratch in general. This doesn't feel like a Le Meridian property and I was extremely disappointed. After a lot of effort, I was offered to be moved to another apartment block. However the management were unable to get a taxi for 1 hour and I ended up having to walk to the new place. What if I'd needed to get to the airport? The location is pretty horrible - a very old part of Dubai and not recommended for tourists.

This doesn't even feel like a 3* establishment - I hope Le Meridien make urgent improvements that are clearly necessary to restore this place to a suitable standard.

This was a strange little hotel... Rooms were large and clean, and it's in a good location in Deira. Lots of traffic, so it's not a short ride from the airport even though it's only 4km away. I'd stay here again, it's decent value for Dubai.

There was no review of this place, so I thought it was new and it said By Le Meridien, so I booked it on Hotel.com. I knew it was a two star, but expected that meant no lobby, no pool, etc. But I never expected that Meridien would put its name on a place with such a terrible bathroom and standard of cleanliness. The staff was very nice, location as expected, but... the bathroom was terrible, the shower was a small shower pan, the shower curtain was too high and wider than the shower, hence no way to avoid flooding the entire floor, not up to anything Meridien should put their name on, even if they did put out the nice little soap, etc. No wonder this place isn't on the Meridien web site. The bedspread was new as shown in the photo, but the telephone was old and too dirty to want to put near your face. Avoid this place, you can do better.
