“OK for a stopover in Dubai.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014

We stayed here as part of a stopover in Dubai. For the short stay we had it was just ok. Room was extra small with very thin doors so you could hear what's going on outside. The rooms need renovation but they are ok not as bad as people write. The toilet has a dryer and all the necessary things for a stopover trip.
Also tried the room service which was quiet good, liked the food. Also free tea and coffee in room. Free WiFi but extremely slow!
The staff in the lobby very friendly but do not know a lot about Dubai so I guess they were pretty new.
Overall location good with close metro station and the old part of town.
OK for a short stay.

This was our third time in Dubai and on the previous two trips we stayed in great hotels. Unfortunately this one was not up to the standard of the others but it cost the same!

The pictures for this hotel on their web page are not representative of this hotel; not even close.
I think the photos were probably taken 20 years ago or they brought in some hire furniture for the photos and then did an amazing photoshop job on them. Very very misleading.

The place was run down, showed signs of bad repair work everywhere including the rooms and bathrooms and was not very clean.

Both the pool and sauna were closed, supposedly for maintenance but why would you shut down both at the same time? Surely you would do maintenance on one so guests could use the other and then switch over - right? By the looks of things, I would say they looked more run down than closed for maintenance.
They could have told us at the time of booking that the pool was closed!
On our previous two trips to Dubai we spent our evenings in the pool swimming and talking with other guests and thought we would be doing the same this time around. Not so.

The staff were friendly but downtrodden by the manager, a young Indian guy who took great joy in making guests (and staff) stand at the reception counter and wait for him. He would start dealing with one guest, then ignore them and talk to others, he would pick up the phone mid conversation or just stare off in the distance and ignore you. All while half way through dealing with guests quires or complaints.

The complimentary breakfast was good but the breakfast staff all looked gloomy and none of them smiled.

There are many nice hotels in Dubai, but unfortunately, this is not one of them.

Room Tip: If you want a good room, go to another hotel.

Hotel Location was very good, all the restaurants and shopping places are near by. Rooms are small but Ok for the price you are paying. If you are budget traveller then hotel is very good choice specially for couples.

Poor service, ugly corridor for rooms area, too little option for breakfast. No playing area for kids. only good thing is free Wi-Fi, but that too with very weak and unstable connection. Metro is about 20 min. walking distance
