We've booked the hotel as a secret deal and didn't know which one we'll get until after paying. We've taken a risky decision as prices for anything else were double during the time we went (stayed for New Year and few more days after, 6 nights in total). Once we've found out that the secret hotel is York International I was really worried as the recent reviews weren't too good.
When we get there from the airport in the late evening (really easy as metro station is just few steps away, green line Al Fahidi stop - take 3rd exit out and turn left when leaving the metro station, hotel on your right literally few steps away) we were given a spacious room on the second floor, but few minutes after being inside we've asked for the room higher up as the noise from the ground floor bar was very loud!
There was only one free room left on 4th floor so we took it. The noise was not as loud but unfortunately our room was connected through the internal door to the room next door and we were very unlucky with the neighbours as they were very loud after 2am.
Fortunately we had ear plugs so it was easier to go to sleep.
Room size is ok for 2 people. Quite dated but it was cleaned. Bathroom was ok but in need of proper clean.
Breakfast was great. It was a mix of continental, indian, (curry, roti, eggs, pancakes, toasts, samosas etc., milk & cornflakes, plus sweet treats), so something for everyone and I don't understand why people are complaining about it as there's plenty of food available.
On the roof there's a tiny pool, we've sat there once to chill but we didn't swim in it. plenty of space but limited availability of the sun beds.
Staff was very helpful and we didn't have any problems whatsoever.
Plenty of great little local restaurants around. Go and explore. Especially great food at the Iranian restaurant just around the corner. Delicious fruit shakes opposite the metro station.
Overall it's not too bad as long as you're high up. If you'll be on lower floors you won't have a sleep as the disco is finishing at 3am.
We haven't used the disco neither the bar so can't comment on them.
