Reviewed 4 April 2008

I live close to the beach so I am not interested in a beach stay but a downtown stay.

The hotel is basic but with good restaurants and very well located if you want to stay in the city .

A big and clean room and a fantastic breakfast, the best I had in years

I would not stay here for a week or if you want to relax but if you want to experinece Dubai is a good point to use as a base

The hotel could not be faulted. Staff were very friendly and always willing to help. The food in the restaurant and pub were excellent and good value for money. They have a travel desk for booking excursions or Dhow restaurant cruises.

It was a great location for the nearby creek and souks. Local restaurants were even cheaper than the hotel and food just as good.

This hotel is situated in downtown Dubai and 25 mins drive from beach. There is a free shuttle bus to Jumeriah beach each day provided by the hotel.

Dubai is truly an amazing place with loads to do. Only wished I had more time to see everything. Desert safari was the ultimate experience.

Booked with Lastminute.com as they were the cheapest

Arrived at 5.30 in the morning and had our check in and room straight away very swift check in great hotel good position for the gold and fabric souk and rooms and beds very large great breakfast with a vast range to suit everyone’s taste but a good way out from the beach area about 8 miles and 1 hour taxi ride in rush hour.
Good range of food and great bar at Sherlock Holmes tried the Indian and Mexican food all you can eat and drink in the Mexican restaurant for £29.00 best in Dubai but Indian restaurant too authentic for me cant beat a good home balti would book hotel and Dubai again

The hotel was great - friendly and helpful. The disappointment was that a pair of new boots that I bought in Dubai were missing at the day we were leaving.
Upgraded room because we arrived early in the morning and our room was not ready - we got the upgraded room after 6 hours waiting in the coffeebar.
The spa was top with very good service. Very, very good breakfast buffet. Recommend the hotel - but keep valuable things in locked suitcase or in safe.

Stayed on the Executive Floor. Room was beautiful. Great to be able to eat breakfast on the same floor. Great benefits for the evening (nice buffet + you get 3 alcoholic drinks each). The staff were very helpfull and friendly. The location is perfect if you don't want a 'beach front' holiday. The male locals stare at you (if you are a woman) but you get used to it - my advice is to cover up. Felt perfectly safe walking around at night. Used the 'locals' water bus service - great experience. The Indian restaurant downstairs was one of the best Indian meals i've ever had. I would stay there again but on the Executive Floor.

Would recommend the 'ultimate afternoon tea' experience at the Burj Al Arab. It's worth the money (around £55 each) for an extra special treat. We had around 6 courses.

This hotel is in a superb location, minutes from the creek (& water taxi's) & old town (done the beach before). Hop on hop off tour bus picks up opposite hotel next to museum. Good choice of restaurants & bar (food & service very good). Room large, clean & airy with all extras, view from rooms at rear of hotel rather naff. Would recommend for city stay, unable to find fault.
