Star Metro Al Barsha
Ranked #400 of 563 Hotels in Dubai
Reviewed 26 November 2012

I stay at the Star Metro from time to time while in Dubai. It has a full kitchen, living room to help you save money, and is close to a Metro station so you can connect with the rest of the city or Marina. To get to Festival city you will need a cab, but otherwise it is a nice area close to the airport.

The hotel is as basic as you can get it. It's a clean hotel with basic rooms with a kitchen. It's far from the city center, so you gonna spend some cash in taxi. It's a good place to stay for one night or two. It has a small dining area, the wi-fi is payable in all the hotel areas. You can find near the hotel a big mall, where you can buy food and fresh drinks. The staff is friendly and helpfull. Dubai isn't a city to meet on foot, so...rent a car or spend some cash. The night life is very good, with some good restaurants with cheap prices.

A week ago we had an urgent need for a meeting / presentation location in Dubai for 15 people, so the hotel was recommended by a friend. Called in to inquire, gave our technical requirements, and everything else was confirmed and handled smoothly. No fuss, not too many questions and limitations (like other hotels). Coffee and tea breaks were handled very professionally - on the dot, always full, assistance always available. Rates are very attractive, too. Will definitely book again to try the rooms.

It is very close to the Emirates Mall & staff is very helpful. We don't face any issue from early check in to late check out. We never get a chance to have breakfast there so can't say about food. Rooms are spacious and included small kitchenette, washing machine. Bathroom is kind of small with no tub, if one took shower then it needs to be mobbed again. Overall very satisfied with location and service. Internet wasn't working in the lobby area.

I stayed at this hotel on September 2011.
There was no complains at all. Rooms were so clean and we liked the pools on the roof. Location is very good. It is in a walking distance to Emirates Mall. And right next to Metro station meaning you can travel all the way to any Malls in Dubai. There was nice small restaurants and shops very close to hotel.
Good luck

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side have better views.

This hotel is 5 minutes away from Emirates Mall, so if you are in Dubai for shopping then you are in the right place. The hotel is clean and the service is to a high standard, I stayed there 2 times and got upgraded both times without even asking. The rooms are clean and towels are changed daily.
The hotel offers free parking which is very convenient to whoever comes with a car.
