I had originally booked to stay at Al Mazil but was moved here due to renovations. At first I was annoyed but now having stayed here I'm so happy!
Overall the experience was fantastic, the room was great, comfortable bed, quiet & plenty of space. The location is perfect (walking distance to Dubai mall) pool beautiful & food great (being Ramadan I ate at the hotel a lot).
But the best thing about this hotel has to be the service. From the moment I walked in, tired from a long flight, I was welcomed. The staff were always very friendly, accommodating and constantly offering to help with anything the could. Every employee you pass in the hall or see in the elevator greets you with a smile & has a chat (I met some amazing people!). As a solo female traveller they were able to give excellent advice on where to go, what to do and so on which was fantastic.
There were all the little touches you'd expect such as complimentary bottled water, tea & coffee, chocolates, kettle, iron, hair dryer & bar fridge. Others have complained about the bath being in the living area but it is partitioned off by a patterned glass wall & I actually prefer this design.
I couldn't recommend this hotel more & have already told my family to stay here from now on!
