Unfortunately, I had the misfortune to stay at this hotel during a business trip to Dubai. Unfortunately, the hotel was booked at the last minute and I did not get a chance to check Trip Advisor to get reports. It is simply the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. I arrived at the hotel after 12 a.m. after a long trip. The reception was o.k. and the receptionist whilst not the friendliest was efficient. The minute I opened my room the stench of smoke hit me. The room was dark, smelly, dirty, dusty and very dated and dreary. The bathroom had a dated plastic bath, a shower that was a joke and towels that were almost threadbare. I was so tired I decided not to complain and decided to go to bed. The bed was the hardest most uncomfortable bed and I would more than likely have been more comfortable sleeping on the floor. The carpet was simply filthy, stains all over it and it looked as if it hadn't been hoovered in ages. The noise though the night in the hotel was unbearable and the bell from the lift could be heard all down the corridor. After a sleepless night I asked at reception if I could be moved and was told there was no available rooms. The next two nights were the same, and if the hotel hadn't been paid for I would have moved.
After reading the previous reviews I will agree with the writer who said there was a question mark over prostitutes. There is definitely an air of seediness about the hotel and the nightclub that is attached to it. A lot of guys seems to turn up and meet up with Filipino women who are employed by the hotel.
On the last day I went up to have a look at the pool and it was a tiny bit bigger than my bath - what a joke!!!!
I would definitely not recommend this hotel - it is not a 4 star, nor a 3 star nor in fact any star. It is a disgrace and I can't think of one good thing in its favour. Avoid this hotel at all costs.
