“Good to stay”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Its a very friendly hotel with a good business stay.I enjoyed good Indian food at Mumbai Chowpatty and enjoyed a glass of beer with good American and Russian band.This place is near to Airport,and Union Metro station is 10 minutes walk from here.Hotel desk staff is very co-operative.I like the ambience.Its a good place to stay there.Also you can get good eating place out side the hotel like Savarna Bhavan (Pure veg), Karachi Darbar etc.

Room Tip: higher floors have less a/c noise

Dear Mr Deepak,



We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We do get a lot of business travelers due to our location of being close to the airport, metro station and commercial areas. In house are several food and beverage outlets where you relax and enjoy after a hard days work and as you mentioned, several good eating places nearby as well.



Thank you, Mr Deepak, for taking the time to write such positive feedback and we hope to welcome you back to Marco Polo in the not too distant future.



Regards,

Sunil Marya

Vice President

One gets the impression that the hotel may once have been quite a nice hotel. However as a 4 star rated establishment - it does not cut it. Once again no interleading rooms upom check in but we were moved later that same evening and these rooms were much better. The rooms in general are run down, have a damp smell and well worn e.g. dirty grouting in the showers, towles not replaced timeously. We had corner rooms on the first floor facing a street intersection so it was expected that one could clearly hear the noise of traffic. The staff service is great but the overall rating is low because it is not a 4 star hotel but rather a 2 to 3 star rating. Over the December period I stayed in no less than 5 hotels across Thailand, Malaysia and Dubai. They were all 4 star hotels but the only one that really clame close was the Renaissance hotel in Kuala Lumpur. The rest were no where near 4 stars. Marco Polo is in the old part of Dubai called Deira and I suspect no one wants to stay there anymore preferring the more trendy new parts of the city, I will not stay there again.

Dear Guest,

It was a pleasure to welcome you to Dubai and we thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve and show you our brand of hospitality. It saddens us however to read that the impressions left on you were not positive. Our rooms have received many praises since the general refurbishment in 2010 and daily towel change is the standard. We have discussed your feedback in our operational meetings to alert the Department Heads concerned and take action on the matter accordingly.

As for our location in Deira, yes we are in the older part of the city. The old Dubai of the spice souks, gold souks, the Abras and many cafeterias sprinkled around Deira serving authentic Arabic coffee and shisha pipes with your choice of flavor. Many choose our hotel because of our proximity to the airport and the local surrounding culture. The new Dubai is just a 15-20 minute taxi ride away or you may even take the Metro train as we are close to the Salah Al din Station. It is really a matter of preference.

Thank you for your feedback and we hope you come visit us again soon.

Regards,

Sunil Marya
Vice President

Very good location, 15 min with taxi from Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa , 20 min from the airport.
Very comfortable and clean, great choice for breakfast! Friendly and helpful staff. We stayed only 2 nights there on our way back from Mauritius, but it was short & sweet:)

Very helpful staff,who do everything possible to make you comfortable [ June is a very hot month to be there ] but I really enjoyed a four night stay, Pick-up and delivery at any time to the Airport, and all at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: Anywhere on the third floor
