I was in Dubai for a business trip. The reason why I chose the hotel was because of its convenient location to my meetings near Dubai Internet City. The hotel is also a 5 minute walk away from the Emirates Mall which is excellent for me. I went there to eat in the evenings and of course do some shopping.
The hotel itself is very clean and as a returning guest. The staff recognised me from my previous trip. I have to say a big thank you to Mohammed Sohail for his excellent customer service.
He acknowledged me as a Gold member and upgraded my room. Gold members do not get an upgrade so I assume I was upgraded due to previous visits.
The breakfast buffet in the hotel was good full of choice. Restaurant staff were polite and helpful.
Taxis are readily available from outside the hotel and I would not recommend hiring the private taxis which are more expensive.
The only issue is the internet in the room is very slow and this needs to be improved upon. The rooms are large and very clean.
The upstairs pool is small but not busy. I never used the gym but did relax upstairs at night in the bar.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel.
