I stayed for 3 nights in room 2012 which was on the 20th floor and had a great sea view. The room its self was lovely, a good size and has facilities that you would expect from a hotel of this standard such as in room safe, a well stocked mini bar (about 40dhs for a small beer), slippers, dressing gown, laundry service etc and the complimentary bottles of water were replenished twice daily.
I had breakfast included in my room rate which was lovely and there was a good selection everyday including cereal, a variety of breads with jams, cheese and meat plus hot items such as pancakes or waffles, hash browns, beans, veal bacon, sausages, foul, cooked tomatoes (no pork as this is a muslim country). I did also eat in on the middle eastern night in the Horizon buffet and this was delicious!
The service from all of the staff was fantastic and couldn't be faulted. I used the pool a few times and although not a huge pool did the trick to cool off.
The hotel is situated about 10 minutes walk from the nearest metro station (Jumeirah Lakes) which from the airport took about 50 mins and a taxi from the metro cost 10 dirhams and took just a few minutes. The hotel is situated on Jumeirah Walk which is a long strip of restaurants and shops, there is a variety of cuisines though mainly Italian, Japanese, French & Mexican prices seemed to vary between 40 dhs to about 150 dhs. I also took a taxi to the water park at Atlantis hotel on The Palm and this cost 50dhs.
I would have no hesitation on returning to this hotel if I find myself back in Dubai and having seen a little of the city I was pleased with the location of this hotel although a little way from some of the sights in the city - it took about 25 mins by taxi to get from Dubai Mall to the hotel and cost 60dhs. I travelled solo and felt totally safe everywhere that I went and compared to other Middle Eastern Countries there was no one hassling you at all - I would certainly return.
