5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

I stayed for 27 hours as I needed to adjust to time differences before the next leg where I was going to start work as I landed. I was met at my gate by a hotel rep and escorted via the train to a different terminal, he made sure my baggage was checked for the forward journey, and delivered me to hotel reception. The experience was great. I thought it might feel a bit weird being in a building for a day but the terminal is huge and has heaps of food outlets and duty free shopping to browse. Being met at the gate was the clincher for me. I didn't fancy wandering around after 20 hours of travelling. I repeated the experience the following month on the way back. It's not cheap but if you discount the price of a visa and transport into the city it becomes very reasonable.

I've been a frequent visitor to this average hotel that doesn't live up to its luxury billing. Service is good, but rooms are tired. Bathroom fixtures worn, furniture is somewhat beat up. On the positive side, they manage to do a good job of soundproofing, so the rooms are a restful oasis amid the fluorescent bling of Dubai Duty Free.

Helpful hint: use a spare bath towel to block the bottom of the shower door if you want to keep the bathroom from turning into a pond.

I have stayed here a few times and each time was great, the hotel the rooms are nice. The rooms are clean and nice very close to the airport so if you are having a quick turn around time like i did it isn't far. The staff is nice and the food is good too. not the least expensive but at least you won't check in wondeirng why you paid so much for a mediocre hotel.

It was a very good experience, just as many other travelers had said here. Very conveniently located for those people who are in transit to another destination. During our stay, my husband had a problem and needed to go to a doctor, it was one more occasion to observe how competent, professional and efficient the members of the hotel staff are, besides being very friendly.
We enjoyed our stay, most certainly will repeat it in a similar circumstance and recommend it.

The intent of this stay was to facilitate some decent sleep and a shower after the long flight from the U.S. to Dubai. My connecting flight was 15 hours after my arrival in Dubai, while that time could easily be filled in the airport I wanted to try this hotel. I had no reservation but was accommodated with no problem. The service at reception was very good. The rooms were adequate for what they were. Nothing compared to the luxury hotels in the city, but for a connection it eliminates clearing customs to stay in the city. The room was stocked with standard Dubai fare; mini bar, safe, bathroom amenities, etc. But you pay for it. Comparatively speaking it is pricey. However you are saving on a cab, have access to all of the airports shops and restaurants and the hotel has an okay eatery as well. Nothing fancy but if the intent is to rest and clean up it is adequate. I may stay there again.

It seems a good idea to have a hotel inside the terminal for those that cannot step out of the terminal for visa issues. However, the hotel abuses the advantage of its location and charges ridicules rates. For much less you can bask in luxury a short and very cheap taxi ride away from the terminal. Skip it unless you are completely desperate for a couple of hours kip (you can pay per hour - even if you go to sleep alone ;-)

Having a long flight, we decided to break the trip in Dubai to get some sleep. Unfortunately not to be.
Poorly signposted. Even when we were on the right concourse, the signs said Hotel West and Hotel East; not helpful when you're looking for a name.
The room was adequately appointed. I would have loved a bath, but only a shower.
We changed and went to bed really tired. Unfortunately our room overlooked the concourse; this is a 24/7 hotel so every few minutes we had 'bing, bing' followed by an announcement. It got to the stage where we were actually waiting for the next announcement, and we were never disappointed! 'Bing, bong ........' all night long.
Sleep was impossible.
This was an expensive stop-over for a poor night's sleep. Wouldn't stay there again.
