“Short stay but Nice!”
Reviewed 27 December 2011

Nice stay but really short, one night.
There was a Washington machine in the suite.
We were Emirates guest at this hotel.
I enjoyed m'y stay hère. It was not far from the airport.
There was a warm welcome for us and we had breakfast included in the suit and a complimentary drink for us during our stay.
There was an early Check out which were express. The car was waiting for us outside. The réception took care of the confirmation of our car. The wake up call was on Time.
Our stay was perfect in Dubai.
I would advise you this hotel for short stay and may be longer stay?!
I haven t been to the swimming so i won t. Be able to talk about it.

The hotel is nice,clean and quiet. Good location next to a Mall and Metro station. Only draw back are the bathrooms which are a bit jaded compared to all the new hotels springing up in Dubai. Staff is courteous and very helpful.Another negative point were the pillows are very hard tried to obtain a soft one which was a bit better but I'm used to a very soft down pillow.

We stayed here for 3nights and loved it, the rooms were clean, beds comfortable and staff were polite and friendly.The only downside was if you wanted free Internet you had to go downstairs for it which is a little inconvenient, and the cost for room Internet was overpriced. Other than that it's close to international airport,shops,and transport.it also has a washer dryer in kitchenette which was great after our travels. Will def stay here again.

I managed to get one of these apartments at a discounted price of $77 per night. At this price this has to be the best value for money hotel I've ever stayed in. The rooms are stunning and the hotel is literally at the exit of the City Centre metro station, 2 stops from the airport.

This hotel/apartment/suites building is very limited in services as it is not your conventional hotel in Dubai. It doesn't have an alcohol license so there are no extended facilities that usually come with that. Which means, no pub and no extended service hours for the restaurants. For example, if it is past 9PM forget about soup, room service will bring you spaghetti. That is all that I can say about negatives. The service in the hotel is excellent, from the reception to the cleaning crew. They are helpful and natural, you cannot feel any sort of forced politeness in them. The room is fine, it is actually a one bed room apartment, separate bedroom. Full kitchen and large living room. The furniture of the hotel is old but well maintained and it is not falling apart. I will return there if given the opportunity.

If it's a stopover in Dubai and you want to be walking distance from a good sized shopping mall with cinemas/food/clothes outlets etc. then this will fit the bill.
Receiption and restaurant had very friendly staff and all well presented.
The room was fairly large, air con a little noisy and the grouting in the bathroom needed updating. If the kitchen is important to you then you will be dissappointed. Hardly any utensils to speak of. No glasses for wine, no cutlery, only 2 small plates in the cupboard, tiny electric jug and limited coffee supply. Certainly no milk but you could buy it at the supermarket across at the shopping centre. wifi is free in the restaurant so we checked our emails at breakfast.To reach to mall, go right outside the hotel. You will see a glass enclosure inside which you can descend the stairs and cross underneath the very busy roadway. You come up at the other side right at the entrance to the shopping mall where you will find everything you need.

If you are trying to not spend a ton but want to stay at a nice place LITERALLY off the train, this is a good spot.

The staff is fantastic, I have to say. They were very helpful in finding an adapter to work with my plug. It took some time, and some help from the engineer for it to get in working order, however, this did not change their upbeat and helpful moods!

Rooms are pretty nice and spacious. The bedding is oh kay, the mattress is not so great. Bathroom is relatively fine, although the bathtub could have been reglazed or updated. It was a bit yucky.

It's nice that the hotel is right next to Deira City Centre Mall, which provides you access to walk around somewhere.

Also, having the Metro right there was superb. It is so cheap to get to the airport from there and takes no time at all.

I would say the best use of staying here is if you have a layover of a nite, or if you are in town just for a quick jaunt and are not too concerned about seeing the fancier, new part of Dubai. If you are here for a week, you might as well stay in one of the more upscale hotels because the fun stuff to do is about a 25 minute metro ride away. This is a good one or two night place.
