“Staff rather curt”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2013

I had booked online and staff insisted I take a lower grade room than what I paid for... I would not have it and eventually they gave me a key to the room I had booked... When asking for internet password and other services, staff were not friendly... Breakfast was ok... Location is ok... Room was clean and AC worked fine...

Stayed December 2013, travelled solo

It is located in the old part of the city. The hotel staff were unfriendly and rude, they asked to keep the passports for one night to "make copies" and kept them the whole visit! The room was dirty, and in a really bad condition. I won't recommend this hotel to anyone.

The rooms are a very generous size, although the bathrooms could do with an upgrade.
The staff are very helpful.
Good location for exploring one of the few parts of Dubai with some character.
Lots of cheap food and drinks to be found in the area, and good value shopping.

I can't explain clearly enough how very bad this hotel actually is! After checking into my room I was convinced it was a joke and i was been filmed for a reality tv show it was that bad...

1. i wasn't allowed a room key for the first day, couldn't actually get a straight answer why not, but if i wanted to go back into my room i had to get one of the guys at reception to follow me back and let me back in!
2 . cockroach hotel! alive, dead, squashed they come in all forms and look like they have been there a while and never get cleaned up (even if dead!) worst example was a dead squashed one inside the welcome pack information
3. No air con controls, room was set to something around the 16-17 degrees mark and was freezing cold!
4. no hot water, and just a dribble that comes out from the taps, no water pressure at all
5. TV picture was green, just green (like when you put a magnet to it)
6. bathroom dirty and horrible and something you expect in the worst places in asia

yes the location is good but you have to be insane to want to stay here, please take my advice and stay away, this is the worst review and experience i have ever given/had
