I stayed in this hotel for one night. I reached hotel past mid night. Check in was smooth. I requested for late check out which was immediately accommodated by the lady at the reception counter.
The hotel is 15 minutes drive from airport and a little out of the way. You have to use taxi to communte to and from hotel. There is no metro station near this hotel. However, there is a Mall besides hotel where you can go for shopping. There also is a grocery store aroud the corner.
Please note that this is a non-smoking property. So you won't find any smoking rooms here. The room was spacious and very good. Bath room was good too.
Free wireless is available in the lobby. I just used the restaurant for breakfast which was good. Service was up to the mark.
I did not like the lobby area. I prefer to see wide and open lobbies. The one here was too narrow because of the design of the hotel.
Overall I liked the hotel, however, as I mentioned above, it is in the middle of nowhere. It is a very good choice if you are visiting Dubai for business meetings. People living in Dubai will find it convenient to reach this hotel and avoid city traffic. But if you are going with family then I would not advice you to stay here, just because of location.
