Not one of the most luxurious hotels in dubai but it does provide cheap accommodation.
The hotel is mainly for russians and i'm not sure if the breakfast was centred on this or it was more of a local cuisne, it was pretty strange nevertheless!
The room was clean and comfortable enough and the air conditioning worked a treat. You need to put the water heater on before you want to have a shower though, i had a cold shower because i hadn't realised straightaway.
The pool area is on the roof and is pretty small. There are only 4 sun beds. We managed to get one every day evenutally but not many people were using the pool during our stay. The water is freezing!
An importnant note inline with the other reviews, don't underestimate the problems you will face getting a cab! I had read the other reviews but didnt think it would be much of a problem because i have been to dubai before and been followed down the road by cabs. Apparently it is a real problem though, cab drivers dont want to pick people up in busy areas. We aited an hour for a cab the first night, we actually flagged down 5 or 6 and they said no. Then on the last day we actually ordered a cab to the airport and it still took an hour to come to the hotel. We heard on the radio that they are starting a new thing where you can call a number and report cabbies that refuse to take you and they get banned for 10 days so it may not be a problem for much longer
