Maybe I was in a different place looking at some of the reviews here. Like most we arrived here as part of a stop over deal - in this case an Emirates package to Mauritius and back via Dubai for 3 nights. Having arrived at the dead of night my first impressions, when I opened the heavy drapes first thing in the morning as I gazed out over the back of the hotel, was that I was in down town Baghdad at the height of the Gulf War -the noise including that of the seemingly non stop aircraft activity added to this. On going downstairs we met a couple who had a nightmare story of arriving a night earlier to be told there was no room for them and they had to pay again. The food - I have to say wasn't up to much and anything cooked was left to warm through on what appeared to be Bunsen burners that reminded me of school chemistry lessons and was at best tepid. Best of all though was the room itself. I may be naive but a bathroom with a see through glass toilet door is a first for me - I immediately looked for cameras thinking I was being secretly filmed for one of those eccentric Japanese game shows you here about. And then there was the room lighting - strangely glowing blue light switches which looked like they'd been pinched from a 70's disco. Then there was the overall décor of the room and corridors which added to this 70's era feeling - my immediate thoughts were that the owners had a beige fetish - everything was in a variation of the colour brown - walls, carpets without any relief giving the impression of being immersed in a giant chocolate gateau. The one positive aspect of this thankfully fleeting visit were the staff - friendly and helpful. Avoid if possible as I'm confident Dubai has better.
