Found on agoda.com. Expected the min for what We have paid but got the worst. Finding this place was a huge pain if u r going to this place if u a first timer. Not many taxi guys also don't know it. Lobby is far better place than the rooms to stay. Only best part is that it's so close to creek n u can enjoy ur evening walks.

Found through Booking.com for the very reasonable price of £35 plus taxes (worked out at AED 240, including breakfast), the Nova does not pretend to be anything special but delivers the required services - air conditioned, clean accommodation - enthusiastically. The reception staff let me have an early (5 hour) check in at no additional cost. Not somewhere I would choose to bring the family or try to impress clients, but by all means good enough for a transit. Shall definitely keep this one in mind for the future.

There is no better located hotel in the Meena Souq (Indian Market) area for sure... But other than that, I'd say stay away... We booked it because my mother has a bad leg and thought the ideal location would be perfect! But we left shortly after due to how dirty it was! Moved about 10 minutes walk to Admiral Plaza and despite the longer walk, everyone was happy!

Small rooms, noisy a/c and not clean at all - bugs and things common...

Staff was friendly and helpful but the quality of rooms is what kills this place! But if ur on a shopping trip for 1-2 days, u can live with it and the ideal location is perfect!

Reviewed 3 February 2012

This is not your usual Dubia 4/5 star hotel but the equivalent of a 2 star B&B in the middle of Meena Bazaar. At over £60 per room per night this is not a 'cheap' hotel.

Booked a balcony room but was given a room without a window on the first night but this was changed after I threatened to check out the following morning.

Balcony Room is large but views aren't that great. Bathroom was smelly through-out even with the extract fan being constantly on. Everything was corroded. Shower was hot and powerful. Had to ask for hand and bath towels every night!

Breakfast was adequate - toast, corn flakes, juice, omelette made to order, melon and 2 different hot local dishes everyday. Staff were very accommodating.

Hotel is centrally located for the metro, shopping malls, jewellery and other shops, restaurants etc. Would recommend - Rangoli, Sarpino's and Bhavana restaurants as they are within walking distance of hotel.

Finally, I would only use this hotel again if Sun City, Dolphin or the York international were all full!

Room Tip: Ask for a Balcony Room and get this confirmed in writing!

Somehow it is a normal hotel. Not so much in distance from Bar-dubai bus stand or Gubahib metro station. Price is slightly high. Room service is as usual.Nothing special. When You really need room( specially at festival time - like EID) you can stay. Cleanness is okk.
