Went to Dubai for my birthday and decided on this hotel for the price and location. We had a rocky start with this hotel - room wasn't ready, then were given a smoking double (when we had asked for a non smoking twin - (unsure but may have been down to Expedia not giving them the details) but once we finally got our room, we were not disappointed. The room was a nice size, beds were comfortable, and a decent amount of wardrobe and cupboard space, along with comfy chairs and tables. There were dressing gowns and slippers in our cupboard. Tea, coffee, and bottled water were provided complimentary every day in our rooms which was appreciated. There was a mini bar but we had it cleared out so we could use the fridge for other things. And the bathroom was very nice, not exceptionally big but enough room to have a clear closed off section for the bath and shower (with two separate heads!).
We didn't eat in the restaurants that the hotel has or use the bars unfortunately, but we did use room service. My friend had dinner in the room the first night and said it was good and as we were too late (or lazy) getting up for breakfast the next day we decided to order breakfast. I have to say that breakfast was delightful - we went for the American breakfast and there was a sufficient amount of food. There was chicken sausage, bacon (not pork), toast, mini muffins and croissants, yoghurt, cereal, hash brown and the cocktail juice (recommended). Later that day the hotel surprised me with a birthday cake which was a really nice touch.
In terms of price and location, this hotel isn't cheap but then it is very reasonable in relation to a lot of other hotels in Dubai. We had wanted to stay in a beachside hotel but the prices were too high for us. We chose this hotel as it mentioned free shuttles to the beach which was fine for us. Even though we only used the shuttle once I recommend it. The free public beach was 5 minutes in the shuttle! Jumeirah Beach Park (paid beach) was only another 5 or 10 minutes after that so in terms of location for the beach, the hotel is great. We actually just took the shuttle to Dubai Mall which didn't take too long to get to. You do have to go everywhere in a taxi though but they aren't that expensive and the hotel can hail them for you. There is a mini mall within 5 minutes walking distance, it doesn't have much but is where we picked up breakfast / snacks from Carrefour and another eatery) and it also has a foreign currency bureau.
We didn't use the gym or pool but I did use the jacuzzi which was nice and had a massage which was needed. I do think the hotel should consider adding a few other treatments.
Unfortunately, on our last day / night we did encounter a problem with the shower - it was running cold and while they sent someone to fix it, all they did was leave the tap running to try and get the hot water to come...while it got warmer, it didn't sort itself out properly till the morning. Also, there was a notice that there wouldn't be any running water for the early hours of the same morning which may not be a problem if you are sleeping but if you're just returning from a night out its not very pleasant. Anyway, this was a minor issue in what was a very pleasant stay in a very good hotel. I would recommend and I would stay there again if returning in Dubai.
