“Sleepless nights”
Reviewed February 27, 2011

Hotel is fair value for money, but it's not in a central location, so be prepared for plenty of taxi rides (which are cheap relative to UK). Staff are friendly, except for reception, which I found bordering on the sullen. Biggest gripe was the noise from the hotel nightclub, open until 3am every morning. Because of this, I had to change my room at 1.30am from one overlooking the port to one overlooking a building site. Manager compensated me for this by deducting the cost of a meal costing all of £7.50! On checking out, I again had problems with reception, being charged for phone calls I didn't make and meals I didn't have. With so many hotels on offer, there must be better ones for the money than this.

Stayed in this hotel in october for 4 nights, room was spacious with a view on the arabic gulf and cleaned every day, complimentary newspaper is provided also everyday.
It's trus that it's a bit difficult to sleep at night because of the 3 night clubs but overall, hotel was good and in good location in bur dubai.

We were staying overnight as a stopover for our onward flight to Jakarta As the address on the voucher was a PO Box we phoned the reception to direct the taxi driver. he gave a very poor response but we got there eventually but came to wish we had not.
We asked of there was somewhere to eat and were directed to the Chinese restaurant which was not bad but was closing by the time we got there. we (my wife and I both mid fifties but well travelled) asked if there was somewhere to get a drink. We were directed to the Marines Bar on reaching the entrance to this bar we were asked for a 50dhs admission fee which woul include a free drink. Whne we entered the bar we found it full of Thai prostitutes and associated clientele we turned and left collected the entrance fee on the way out complained to the doorkeeper whose previous good english changed to uncomprehending shrugs.I then asked him a question in urdu about his wife which he did not like. I returned to reception and asked the receptionist what the hell he was doing directing me to a brothel more shrugs and grins. I asked if there was anywhere else and was directed to the Kohinoor bar. The contained no Thai prostitutes but plenty eastern European ones who were engaged in a pathetic cattle market stage dancing routine in front of a crew off mainly bangla/indian contract labour suppliers being invited to take their pick. Thoroughly unpleasant.
We then decided to got to bed and found that this hotel features an extremely noisy disco which continues until 0300 we were offered a change of room but there could be nowhere in the hotel unaffected by the volume. On check out I advised the apparent manager that I would complain, he clearly could not care less a knocking shop being more profitable than an overnight stopover, I am very far from prudish or moralistic but this place frankly disgusted me

Synopsis If you want to spend a night in a two stage knocking shop with a deafening disco then this place is for you. Otherwise avoid it like the plague that it is

i found this hotel to be overpriced for the facilities and comfort it offers,
except being in Bur Dubai and convenient to reach from the trade center, i dont see any specific reason to be here. the rooms are small and congested and old fashion design. breakfast is very uninteresting ..overall the whole property is very uninteresting and purely average. not worth the price really.

This was not the first time I have stayed at the Seaview and I keep going back because it is good value for money. I'm normally overnighting but on the times I have stayed a few days the amenities have been good with a compact little gym and a tidy wee pool on the roof. They are experiencing some noisy renovations to the dining area in the foyer but once that is finished it should be back to business as usual.
