Stayed here as a short stop over to break up a long flight. The room looked grubby and dirty with marks on the walls, facilities included in the description were not to be seen and the window didn't even close properly. To top it all off, there was work going on outside our room and carpets were piled 2 feet high in the fire exits!! Breakfast consisted of curry and chicken burgers, which was interesting but there was also fresh fruit and toast available. Also, it isn't in the nicest of areas and probably not the most suitable choice for 2 young women to stay at.

I was passing through Dubai with wife, so we decided to stay at this hotel for the night, mainly because of the price.
Having stayed there for less than 20 hours, I have to say we will not be returning to this hotel anytime soon.
The hotel itself looks very old and run down. The rooms are not clean and the breakfast buffet isn't much of buffet at all.
The hotel is located in an area of the city where I would not feel comfortable having any of my female family members stay there alone.
The only positive for this hotel is its friendly staff.

I have just returned from a week staying at the New Penninsula Hotel in Dubai.
On first arrival, I was a little uneasy about leaving my passport with the staff in reception, but they assured me that they'd return it to me as soon as they'd finished with it and as promised I had it bought up to my room within the hour.
I found the staff at this hotel extremely pleasant and helpful, they were more than happy to advise me on which places I should visit, directions I should take and the best times to go. The hotel is located next to the local bus stand, where you can easily find a taxi, although the hotel staff always offered to get me transportation if they knew I was going out.
It's located near to a Carrefour supermarket, so you never have to go without anything and there are small traditional restaurants within walking distance.
It's a less than 10 minute walk to the creek, which is well worth a visit, as the Heritage Village is along here, and at night comes alive with traditional Arabic music, food and dancing, as well as small stalls selling goods.
The hotel offers a excursion service, where by you are told what kinds of activities are on offer and their prices and If interested the trip will be booked and arranged for you. I went on the desert safari, which was one of the highlights of my trip.
The hotel is situated right next to a mosque, which obviously will have Prayers said at sunrise and throughout the day, this is not something that troubled me, and as there is a mosque on virtually every street, is something you would probably find it hard to avoid no matter where you stayed.
My room at the New Penninsula Hotel was nothing fancy, but had everything I needed to have a pleasant stay. The cold water is in fact warm water and I found this to be the case everywhere I went, so I don't think this is something you can fault the hotel on. The room was cleaned everyday and a free newspaper was left in the room.
Breakfast is from 07:00 - 10:00 and the choice was fantastic!
As there are numerous restaurants in the hotel, the music played at night can be heard from the hotel rooms and may bother some guests, I was on the third floor and assume I was far enough away for it to have not been a problem, but I can imagine that those guests on the floors below may have been kept up.
I plan on returning to Dubai very soon and would not hesitate in staying at the New Penninsula hotel again.

Avoid this place at all costs...We decided on Dubai very last minute and this place was available for a reason!! Its a nasty experience..Rooms are really dirty - the bed spreads had stains on them..I didnt want to get into the bed and the shower was filthy...They're was no way I was taking off my flip-flops. Also there is a mosque right next door with prayers starting at 6 in the morning, speakers pointed directly at the hotel..The hideous disco music had only stopped about 3 downstairs.. Cold water was roasting - staff refused to give me a safety deposit box...this place is terrible..i moved out after one night..
