“A quaint hotel ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

A quaint hotel in a great location. The mall of Emirates being a block away, great swimming pool, 24hr fitness centre and a speedy on t go breakfast station. Staff were always on hand to assist wherever possible. Rooms were impeccable with up to date modern deco. All in all great value for money.

Stayed July 2013, travelled with friends

Friendly staff and including the GM who is from the EU! She is a very beautiful person and understanding to your needs...

Business center has internet, printer and they have WiFi all for a small price. If you need a private driver to go to any place, they will arrange it with an outside company who works with them! The cost is not so much, so I suggest to use it, because it's too damn hot during the day. :-)

Hotel has central air through -out and the food is pretty excellent. You will find International flair as well as International people from all over.

There is a 24 hour store which has food, drinks, and cosmetic items if you need something. The sandwiches are tasty and fresh!

The bar has a large sports screen if you are into sports and all the drinks you can think of.

Worth the $$$ and you should check it out when you are in Dubai.

Enjoy!

Room Tip: I preferred a room facing the inner section of the hotel (6th floor) and not the outside view becaus...

We stayed here for three nights this month and were not disappointed. Our request for a city view room on a higher floor was complied with and we were appointed a room on the 5th floor (Room No 502). We had a very pleasant stay and our only complaint was that on the morning of the second day the housekeeping kept on knocking intermittently from 830 as they wanted to clean the room. The initial check in at the front desk took quite a while as they took a long time with another guest who was standing before us. There is a bar and alcohol is served at the hotel. We did not have any meals here so cannot comment on the food, however, the location is great, being close to the Mall of Emirates. Its a 10-12 minute walk to the mall and you might want to take a cab instead of trudging in the scorching Dubai heat. Taxis are easily available in front of the hotel and the front desk can also call a cab for you if you request them. There is no spa at the hotel, we would have liked that, but there is a small swimming pool on the top floor as well as a gymnasium. All in all, we would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms with a city view are preferable

Great staff and good location, especially if you want to go to the Mall of the Emirates. Also a good landmark
Staff are warm and helpful, beds are very comfortable.
They maintain the standard of service and quality.

We spent 3 nights here at the beginning of June 2014 and loved it. I emailed the hotel in advance of our arrival to request (if possible) a room with a view, having read previous reviews and on our arrival they were able to provide us with a room overlooking the front entrance to the Hotel of the 6th floor, which was perfectly acceptable and better than the atrium view.
The rooms are adequate with enough room for us both (our suitcases were bulky and did get in the way, but we were only there a few days so coped with it). The bathroom was equipped with a walk in shower, wonderfully powered and very clean. The room was airconditioned and also clean with a king sized bed that was very comfortable and an extra pillow could be found from the wardrobe. There was a kettle and tea and coffee available for your use, free of charge. Bottled water was available in the room and replenished everyday, again, free of charge and I think was one of the more useful things. The room also accommodated a safe and an empty minibar fridge, which we used for our on bottled drinks. Our only moan with the room, was that despite being out all day and returning at 5pm for a quick shower and changes for a pre booked meal in Jumeirah, the room hadn't been cleaned and made up, so we had no fresh towels. We had to wait about 30 mins before we could use the room, but at that time, we did expect the room to have been clean.
Our stay included breakfast. There was a huge variety available,cereals, fresh fruit and yogurts etc and chef would make you omelettes, crepes, scrambled eggs if you so required from thier satation behind the hot foods. As the UAE is a Muslim country, there are no pork products available, so be prepared for turkey bacon and chicken sausages etc....all of which were fine.
We ate at the bar on one occasion, slightly overpriced, but we had arrived quite late on our first evening, but the food was good and substantial. Service was a bit slow, despite there hardly being anyone in the bar at the time.
There is a pool on the rooftop of the hotel, with a bar, as well as a small gym. It was very clean, but we only went for a nosey as we had lots to do and see in Dubai!
Finally, the hotel is well situated for the Mall of the Emirates (approx 5-10 mins walk, in the heat it was definitely nearer 10 mins!) and if you needed a taxi for anywhere else, they are really cheap and hail one from the front of the hotel. They are standardised and are beige in colour and are metered so you won't be robbed of your money. We got taxis quite often and they drivers were extremely friendly and knowlegeable.

First time we have stayed in Dubai, although we visited many, many years ago.
This hotel was recommended to us by a friend who always stays here, and it didn't disappoint. It was great value for money, provided everything we needed for our short (3 day) stay - clean, comfortable, very friendly staff.
Only downside was that it would be useful to have free wifi which just about everywhere else provides these days, but that was rally just a small thing...
Overall, a great stay - we'll be back!
