Lotus Downtown Metro Hotel Apartments
Ranked #55 of 300 Speciality Lodging in Dubai
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Stayed here for 2 nights on our travels from Australia to Ireland,myself husband and 3 year old son and 10 week old daughter.As we were doing a big trip we thought we would stop off on the way and stay in a hotel to break it up,the plan was to lazy by the pool and just order room service as with such young children didnt fancy sightseeing,that was a trip to do on our own.This was recommened to us as there were 4 of us,on paper.Got there and the reception area was ok,staff werent overly friendly,then headed to our room.From the time we stepped into the lift the place changed,it was all very dark and dated interior,the appartment was too big and again old style,smelled like the last person that stayed there smoked,and the curtains were all stained,general housekeeping was not good,probably appeared worse due to the worn furniture.As for the lazy time by the pool.didnt happen,there was no way i was trusting that water in the pool with the kids.So we ended up waking very early on the first day and headed for one of the closest shopping centres and stayed there for a good while and ate there too,that was a positive thing about the location the metro was 2 minutes away from it. This place would be good for a single person or couple planning on just do full on tourist things,and using it as a base for sleeping.Sorry I couldnt give a better review but I was really disappointed,had been looking forward to going there and after looking on the website was happy our choice,then when we arrived wanted to leave,we even contemplated booking in somewhere else for the night but just stuck with it.We never complained at the time of our stay as I didnt feel comfortable saying anything to the staff.

Stayed: May 2013, travelled with family

I stayed at lotus Downtown for 23 night and the staff were very helpful and friendly. well managed hotel and the size of single apartment is huge.

you can easily take a metro from Union station which is 2 minutes away from the hotel and there are a number of restaurants and facilities around the hotel.

good points:
clean hotel,friendly people,good for single people and families,large rooms, easy access to metro,good facilities such as GYM and pool.

I would like to thank everyone at Lotus apartments for the great hospitality.

Booked a 2 night stay at the hotel through laterooms.com. After arriving to what looked a decent hotel, I got to reception to check in to be told that I had only paid for 1 night and that I had to pay for the second night aswell. Being pretty certain that I had Pre-paid for both nights at the time of booking as was stated in the booking conditions. 'required to charge full pre-payment at the time of booking'.
The duty manager continued to argue with me that even though they were supposed to charge me for 2 nights, they didnt..? The most annoying thing was that he wasn't willing to admit that he or the hotel had made a genuine mistake, while all along he had a smug look on his face. Instead of apologising the manager sent me on a wild goose chase to look for an atm machine that would print my statement so then i could show him proof of payment. Unfortunately I couldn't find an atm that would give me a printout of my bank statement. So I had no choice but to PAY AGAIN for my second nights stay. Apart from that not a bad hotel staff were freindly apart from a few miserable faces but overall a pleasant stay.

Dear Mr. K. Husssain

It’s with great regret and despondency we feel for the experience you had during your stay,
we empathize your feelings and humbly apologize for the same.

We have looked into the matter and have checked the same with our concerned department and the on line booking forum, rest assured the hotel has not charged you for any additional accommodation charges, but only for the room nights stayed during your visit in our hotel.

We hope to see you soon on your next visit to Dubai, and re-assure you of our services and the warmth of our team.

Stayed in this Lotus hotel for 1 week and had nice time. The room (which was an appartment) was very clean and comfy, with all the facilities you require. The staff was helpful and very welcoming, and the food they served OK.

Pool and gym are present, and great to use.

I'd recommend that hotel for a family who wants an affordable accommodation in Dubai.

Room Tip: This is an hotel appartment, don't be surprised to walk in a huge flat.

The Lotus DM Hotel Apartments offers two buffets- an Iranian cuisine or an Asian cuisine. I enjoyed both. It is very well priced, including drinks (soft drinks or bottled water) and desserts.
There was a wide selection of dishes at both buffets and the food was very tasty.
Staff are very friendly, and smiley. Soft music was playing in the background which created a pleasant atmosphere.
If you are staying within the vicinity of this hotel, dining at either one of the buffets would be a nice night out.

This apartment hotel is large, poorly appointed, very dated in decour and lacking in service. There were plates and cutlery but no dish washing cloths or liquid. There was a kettle which failed to turn off when it boiled but no tea sugar or milk or usual toileteries. Not knowing relative costs in Dubai I can't comment on value except that it was the equal poorest accommodation I have struck in half a dozen stopovers there. The location is good, handy to airport and metro and with a bit of decent management could be OK. The evening meal at the restaurant was an interesting mix of Korean, Japanese, Thai and Western in the buffet and quite acceptable.
