“avoid G&Ts at the St George”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2010

My friend and I called into the St George Hotel to rest and have a drink before beginning shopping in the gold and silver souk. We each had two gin and tonics but when the bill came the manager insisted we had ordered doubles (which we had not!) and charged us accordingly. We are quite clear about what we ordered and certainly we did not feel that we had each had four G&Ts before we left. However, it was a difficult situation and we somewhat reluctantly felt we had to pay the bill and leave quite quickly.

Whilst we did not see much of the hotel, we were greeted by a doorman; the common areas looked clean and tidy; the bar and restaurant seemed clean and tidy also and most of the people in the hotel appeared to be 'locals'.

This hotel has received mixed reviews so we arrived with some trepidation. None was realised. The location of the hotel couldn't be better and the staff were most helpful. We had a spacious suite on the first floor where the whole appeared to have been recently refurbished. For us the disco was not an issue but could understand rooms higher in the hotel being adversely affected. The breakfast was adequate, hot and cold, but one was offered freshly cooked eggs. Restuarant decor is tired an needs attention.

This has been my 2nd stay at St. George, Deira Dubai, U.A.E. This hotel is located right in front of the Creek & about 5 minutes walk from the famous Gold market of Deira Dubai.

I had stayed here during my last visit to Dubai in Oct 2006. The best about this hotel is it's location. I am a Textile trader & for me to visit my clients office without wasting time & money is the priority.

Gold market & textile market of Deira is located just about 5 minutes walk from this hotel. Also incase you need to visit Bur Dubai, which is other half of Dubai, this hotel is the ideal place. Since the Abra (small boat) can take you to Bur Dubai at a very cheap price rather than spending DRS 10-15 by a taxi.

Breakfast is included in your package, which is excellent. The tarriff starts from about $60 to $150 & rooms are spacious & has fantastic view of the creek & market.

It has a happening Bar & Rest as the ground level. Good crowd & amusement for business travellers.

For any business traveller who has work in Deira Dubai, this hotel is surely a good option.

that stay in St george was a nightmare experience..
the staff was demonstrative in 'Hostility' not 'Hospitality'..
the was obvious ethnic profiling n negligent attitude from the hotel staff n supervisors towards my Indian partner..
the room service didn't work..
we had to remind to change the bedlinen n towels every day, n those were always kind of washed out and smelly ..
at nights there was a noise n stinky smoke was coming through the ventilation system from topfloor bars..
we were charged for all the amenities which had been advertised as complimentary - for airport shuttle service..
the stuff also lied to us that breakfast was not available..
we intended to stay in that hotel for 7 days, but left after 2days..
the price $200 they charge for a single room is definetely too high for what that miserable service which they offer..

Went to Dubai 11th - 16th April on Business.
Did not want to spend too much on hotel
Booked at $121 a night on hotelclub.com
Creek View room.
Was upgraded to a suite on 1st floor - Room 106
Room was very big, fridge but empty, No kettle for tea.
Picked this hotel mainly because of internet wifi access.
On arrival there, I was told it was not free, had to pay $22 a day which I was disgusted about but had to do.
Breakfast was nothing to write home about - Just Okay.
No Airport Pickup, took a taxi 30AED each way - $8.00.
Hotel was less than 10mins to Hotel. Please take Airport metered coloured taxi, they are much cheaper
Hotel had 3 night clubs on 10th floor, this did not bother me as my room was on 1st floor and I did not hear the noise.
Please ask for a 1st or 2nd floor room if you have to stay here.
The location is great, close to souk and you have the abra boat crossing to Bur Dubai right outside the hotel.
Staff's were friendly, always willing to help, I can't fault them at all.
In general, hotel was very okay for my need. Like I said, it's a 3 star hotel and yes, if I have to, I will stay there again.
I loved the big size of the room. For me, it was a plus.

We have just returned from a 6 night stay at the St George and would like to agree with the review of Timothy and Brenda from Manchester. We found the hotel staff extremely helpful and friendly, the room was clean and spacious and we were upgraded to a suite at no extra cost as we arrived at 11am in the morning but they didnt have a room ready,as check in time was 12noon. The suite was on the 2nd floor and they did give us the choice of being on the 6th floor,but did warn us about the nightclub on the 10th floor. We were told that the 2nd floor was no smoking,and it was clean and fresh,no smell of smoke as some other reviews would suggest,and we were not disturbed by the noise from the nightclub. The room was serviced everyday with clean fresh towels,what more could we ask for £88 per night? We visited Dubai last year and stayed at the Dubai Palm Hotel in Deira,definately not recommended. We noticed the St George on our many visits to the Creek and decided to book for this year. Admittedly,we did book then look at the reviews afterwards,if we had taken notice of the reviews we wouldnt have stayed there,but for the price and location,it was definately the right choice for us. Yes,the bar and nightclub is frequented by prostitutes,but we found it quite amusing,but they didnt bother us at all. We are told that this is the norm in most hotels in Dubai,just a higher class in the 5 star hotels!! A visit to the restaurants at the Radisson hotel,a 20 minute walk away down the Creek, are a must,especially the Fish Market,fresh fish restaurant,and theres also a British Pub down there if you fancy a pint,but these are a bit pricey,but you do pay for quality. We had an evening at the races,which was fantastic,many visits to the Souks,walking distance from us,a tour of the whole area on the Big Red Bus Tour,and finished the week off with a dinner evening dhow cruise on the Creek. The Jumeirah beach park is 25drs in a taxi but much nicer is the Al Mamzar beach park,also 25drs by taxi (the hotel taxi will charge you 40,so catch your own taxi from the road). All in all,thoroughly enjoyable and would definately stay there again!!
