We have been to Dubai before and while not in love with it overall as a destination, it provides a good stopover enroute to Europe. We only wanted a good hotel close to the airport with perhaps an Arabian atmosphere. This hotel fitted the bill perfectly and actually gave us a different concept of the city. Location was good close to the Dubai mall and only 20mins from the airport made it great for a stopover without actually staying at the airport. Room was nicely appointed but some may be putoff by the glass bathroom. I actually like it but some may not. Every person on staff that we had dealings with were very good and the welcome from all staff was genuinely nice and efficient. Overall the hotel had a feeling of calm and relaxation in a very modern Arabian way. Would definitely stay here again and perhaps may return to Dubai because of this pleasant experience. It definitely deserves a good rating!
