“Nice, it's still new (as of July 2014)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

We spent 3 nights at the end of July 2014; it's still new and good property. Its location is very close to metro station. Taxi is also easy to find.
Check-in process (and also check-out) was fine. Room & bathroom were good and clean (new) with complete amenities, so we had nothing to complain about.
Hotel provides nice breakfast.
The only incident I had was when I once asked for a taxi from a hotel staff outside (bell boy..? I don't remember), but instead he tried to recommend me to use a private car with a fixed fare. He said the car is better and bigger (which we didn't need because only 3 of us!) and it would take the same price as regular taxi. Good thing we didn't take it, cause later on we found out that we paid our taxi cheaper than his proposed price! I just can't understand why hotel allowed that kind of behavior..., especially when taxi is actually easy to find.
Other than that, we enjoyed our stay there.

I stayed at this hotel during Aug 2014 and 3 bedrooms apartment.
Check in / Check out: check in was slow because they took a long time to get it ready. Check out was great and smooth.
Location: Close to Dubai Metro station. However, you need a car or taxi for transportation.
Staff: they are friendly and willing to help.
Rooms: room’s sizes are good. Check the pictures.
Wi-Fi: is free inside the rooms
the breakfast was great and it is worth it.
Overall, I recommend this hotel especially for Families.

I had a 2 nights' stay at this hotel in mid August. The location is excellent and the metro station is a couple of minutes walk from the hotel. Stepping out of the metro and crossing the busy road to reach the hotel can be a challenge because of the lack of a good pedestrian crossing. I think the hotel should install some speed breakers in front of the entrance.

The lobby is rather small and when I checked in at around 8:00 pm, the receptionist forgot to brief about the hotel facilities, check-out timings etc. My room was nice and clean. There was no iron available in room so they offered to iron three items everyday for me free of cost. The staff was overworked I guess because every time I called the reception on the first day of my stay, the receptionist would listen to only the first line I had said, and would cut the phone.

The pool area is nice but it was very hot and dusty that day. Breakfast is mostly continental and a bit boring. There are a few good restaurants and convenience stores within a few minutes' walk from the hotel. Mall of Emirates is the next stop on Metro.

Overall a good hotel.

Just a five minute walk to Sharaf DG metro station, very convenient. New facilities, clean, quite, excellent gym. Breakfast is very good, but it doesn't change much, so if you stay for more than 2 days, it might get boring. The only thing that upset me very much was getting a call 30 minutes before checkout time "to remind me that check out was at noon". First time in my life!!! I really felt like they wanted me out of the hotel right away! I pointed this out to the receptionist when leaving (at noon sharp), and she said it was a hotel policy. If this is true, I find it very annoying for guests. And won't go back to this hotel for this reason. I want to feel welcomed and valued, not mistreated.

Dear Valued Guest,

Greetings from Novotel Dubai Al Barsha,

Thank you for sharing the experience of your stay at Novotel Dubai Al Barsha and for your positive comments about the location, gym, and cleanliness of the hotel.

Kindly note that during high occupancy, we seek to confirm with our guests if are due to depart as planned to make sure availability of rooms for both our in-house and forthcoming guests. This procedure is followed due to the fact that some guests may wish to extend their stay at the last minute without giving the hotel advance notice of their change of plans.

We appreciate your concern, and we look forward to welcoming you back at the Novotel Dubai Al Barsha.

Kind Regards
