“Don't go there!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

First the Shawarma (grilled meat/chicken) is set at the entrance every night, so the smell will go up to the rooms, no body wants to smell food all night long.
And it turned out to be a place for prostitution too.
Breakfast is not bad but you'll find alot of indian food too.
Location is not bad since the metro station is near.
We had a problem in our first night, they were claiming that the booking was set for the next day so we had to pay extra to get the room.
DO NOT GO THERE UNLESS THERE'S NO OTHER OPTION.

What a horror of a place! Cheap and nasty with prostitutes lining up around the entrance. Later in the night the bar and disco areas are full of groups of drunk younger men, or older men groping and haggling the girls. Unfortunately this is Dubai and most hotels now offer prostitution along with the bar snacks, but this hotel is at the seedier end.

We visitied and the room was dirty, the music could be heard right through until the early hours of the morning. The men oggled at my wife as we entered and left the building and it was full of 'women of the night'.

Stay away.

I booked this hotel online for a good deal. Went in with a friend of mine, had requested for a Twin sharing room, but at the front desk they said its not available now will be changing in the next day and gave us a Double sharing room, but for 3 days we kept asking for the room change but it was of no use. Below i have shared my reviews which might help other travellers.

Positive Things;

- Location is Very good, Lot of Restaurants, Shopping Places and Metro Station just in the Circle of a walk from the Hotel.
- Value of Money, but good only for short duration not more than 2 nights
- Room & Bathroom are Spacious, Neat and Comfortable.
- Check-in was smooth and fast, Staff were very Polite.

Negative Things:

- Breakfast is very bland, hardly 3 items each day and the same is repeated everyday.
- Hotel has 3 Nightclubs, too much of noice from these in the night you will not be able to sleep, unless you are located on 3rd floor and above.
- Mineral water is not provided daily in the room, only on the day of Check-in we could find 2 small water bottles.
- Internet is not available for free in the room, even its very expensive if you plan to buy.

Room Tip: Choose any room above 3rd floor if you want to sleep undisturbed at night and if you want a good vie...

I heard some negative things about this hotel such as the pick up point for girls right in front of the hotel and the club and bar inside. Sure these are there, but I was surprised to find many families during the breakfast.
The room was all right, shower area was too cramped (box shaped), but the location of the hotel is brilliant. You can get the metro to your desired destination by just stepping out of the hotel, or you can take the bus from the bus stop right in front of the hotel.
There are lots of restaurants nearby, with BBQ, local shawarma, Italian pizza etc, and shopping centres too.
All in all, I figured out it's a good accommodation for a thrifty or budget traveller especially if you are a male but families can also stay there with not much problem.

Room Tip: Get as high up as possible (4th floor or up), as the club is in full swing around midnight.

I stayed there for 2 nights on the 7th floor Executive Room spacious room all the amenities needed is provided. Although it has 5-6 clubs no sound felt on 7th Floor. Breakfast was basic and enough. Plus point its near Meena Bazaar. I suggest rooms need renovation.

Room Tip: Take room in 6th or 7th Floor
