Air Emirates gave us a layover at this hotel when our flight was delayed and we were fairly disappointed with their choice of hotels. However, the best part of our experience was the staff, who handled the sudden influx of guests with courtesy and efficiency. The rooms were definitely "tired", with a balcony door that was not in good shape and wouldn't lock, the room smelled of cigarette smoke and the decor, particularly the bathroom, far from new. They wouldn't give us a different room, but they did quickly send someone up to get the door to lock for us. There didn't appear to be many restaurants or shops near the hotel but it was only about 4 blocks from a metro station so it was easy to get around.. The Italian restaurant mentioned in other reviews was not an option provided by Emirates. The food in the buffet restaurant was a mixture of tasty Arabic dishes and very mediocre international dishes. Again, the restaurant staff were excellent, though, and even allowed us to grab a quick bite before they were ready to open the next morning when we had to leave for an early flight. We are giving the hotel only 2 stars but we would give the staff 4 stars at least.
