First bad impression was at the airport. At Le Meridien's desk I was told transport to the hotel is free, and then charged AED50 at checkout. Do yourself a favour and take a metered taxi.
Also at checkout, the reception would not call a metered taxi, and instead a driver was summoned that would only go to the airport at a set rate.
There is a shuttle to Deira City Centre mall, but it only runs until 8pm, and takes over 45 minutes to come back to the hotel from the mall. You cannot get across the busy main road another way.
The rooms itself were ok, but nothing special. Everything in the hotel is vastly overpriced, from the $6 can of coke in the minibar down to the restaurant. All the staff I encountered seemed very disinterested.
After staying at the much cheaper Le Meridien Apartments in Bur Dubai previous week, this hotel was a let down
There are far better hotels at this comfort range in Dubai for a better price.More
