I first stayed in this hotel in 2008 and stayed here again this time round, due to the location of the hotel being near anywhere you wanted to go.
The first stay was with my brother so the amentites weren't too much of an issue, I stayed at this hotel due to getting a good deal with the compnay i booked with, which had deals for my employer so I got a generous discount so I wasnt complaining to much, since we didnt stay at the hotel too much, the deal included breakfast but we only had breakfast once and its a very basic buffet nothing fancy. The hotel is near the clock roundabout so is easy to get there if you ever get lost and also near the shopping centre and lots of places to eat.
The 2nd time I went with my wife, so as I had already stayed here before. I booked it again since it was competitive on price and the locality of the hotel. The room to be fair they gace us was brilliant as it was a large room and had a balcony, the only good thing about the balcony was that there was fresh air in the room but nothing more, since the balcony overlooked the enterance and another building which was bit of an eyesore, I got a chance to wonder round Dubai a bit more this time round and to be fair I think for the price I paid I could have had a better hotel.
Overall if you want something basic, and this hotel is not a four star more like a three star, the place is OK, all basic facilities but really good for location. There was a swimming pool and a gym but never used it. The hotel is OK once, but as there is no end to the number of hotels in Dubai you can easily choose a hotel every time you go and I would for sure pick another place to stay other then the Metropolitan, this shoud not be mistaken for the Metropolitan Palace which is a few mins walk from this hotel and looks much better.
