What a dump! In the US, this would have been a one or two star hotel. We were greeted in the lobby by the thumping from a loud sleazy discotheque. The halls were poorly lit and not maintained. The room was in disrepair with torn and worn patches on the carpet and wallpaper. The bathroom was cramped and the shower spilled water all over the floor.

If you're on a tight budget, this place is cheap and clean. If you're looking for the Dubai luxury experience, though, you won't find it here.

I booked a deluxe room in Lotus hotel after reading very positive reviews on this site. But I must say it was a very disappointing experience. The room, while fairly sized, lacked basic comfort (I had to ask twice for the broken desk chair to be changed). Towels provided were not clean, and the room was not fixed before 5:30 pm for two days in a row. When I complained, the staff was not very helpful and excuses such as 'too much work' were provided.

Breakfast buffet is a joke. Quality of food is less than average, let alone the cleanness of the place

I've been to other hotels in Dubai, and even a two-stars like Ibis hotel provide a much higher level of service.

Quite simply a clean and well speced hotel in an excellent location for Mcdonalds, Burger King, Pizza Hut etc. Easy to hail a taxi from outside. AlGhurair shopping center with a cinema is also v near by. The bed linen was changed daily and was v comfortable. We will be staying here again definitely.

The first room we had unfortunately had a mattress which sagged in the middle and the 1st night was a bit uncompfy. But we told them the next day and they changed our room without hesitation.

This was out 4th trip to Dubai and we have always stayed near Rigga Rd. It doesn't beat the Taj Palace, but then it is only 1/3 the price and 4/5 as good ! And is in a better location than the Taj. And yes, you could do far worse eg. the K Porte Inn on the opposite corner. It was a real hole. Thank almightly that we found Lotus !

This hotel was very faily prived and located very close to the airport. We booked the hotel from the airport and were not dissapointed. Its located within 5 minutes of the airport and there are a handfull of shopping centers within walking distance. There are many food options availiabe within a close proximity.

The service was excellent. From the monet we arrived, the staff treated us with courtesy and were more then helpful when asked for assistance. The beds were excellent and the bathrooms clean and large. The cable tv left alot to be desired. There was only a few static free channels and the tv was rather old.

Overall I left happy with the hotel. Though Dubai abounds with great hotels, the majority of them are very expensive and out of the reach of one like me. Lotus gave me a great value while allowing me to experience the pleasure Dubai has to offer.

I arrived in Dubai with no reservations. Usually this is not a problem, but on this night everything was full. I asked the cab driver to drive around and try to find a decent room somewhere, and He recommended the Lotus. Formerly Howard Johnsons, I think, I was pleasantly surprised to find a very courteous staff, a very clean room, and a lively night club off the lobby open late with live music. The hotel is a short walk to Burger King and other places North Americans will recognize.
I will defintely stay there again!
