This hotel appears to try very hard to be stylish but seems to have forgotten the basics. First and foremost is that guests should be able to get a good nights sleep. Whoever in management thought that it was acceptable to run a bar / nightclub in the central courtyard should not be in the job. The level of noise in rooms overlooking the pool area is simply unacceptable. To be fair the reception staff try their best and I was promptly moved to a garden facing room when I requested this at midnight but this really should not be necessary. Also note if you are coming to stay here that the rooms have the strangest layout I have ever seen, the toilet and shower are in cupboards either side of the door, the sink and bath are effectively in the room. As water leaked from the shower when used this left a small river between the door and the rest of the room, very poorly thought out.
On the plus side, staff, as I have said, do try very hard. Concierge was particularly friendly and efficient, also a good location for Downtown Dubai / Dubai Mall.
In summary, if you stay here and want to sleep make sure you request a garden facing room. However, with so many good hotels in Dubai I will not be returning.
