By looking at the pictures online and reading some reviews you can tell this hotel would be well worth a visit. Wonderful location certainly as it is close to The Dubai Mall (walking distance) and at a central location in Dubai. Upon entering the hotel to check in I was surprised to learn that there is no free WIFI anywhere in the hotel, not even the lobby. Passable as I wasn't too concerned but it would've been nice to have. We check-in and the room was extremely humid and clearly the A/C was not working. This is in spite of us waiting for them to prepare the room and this is an observation they should have made. Anyway, we call housekeeping and they immediately come and after two hours, they fix the A/C - something which honestly was a waste of our time. Regardless, we rest and shower and suddenly realize there's a leaking ceiling. At that point we were just so disappointed and upon informing housekeeping of that they moved us to another room. Again, this new room has remote controls that don't work, a toilet that won't flush..when you pay what you would for this hotel, we expect that the facilities to at least be well maintained. No DVD player, CD player as per the description. No iron. Whilst the staff were friendly and tried to help as much as they could, I would certainly not come back to this or any Rotana hotel since I will be expecting the same level of poorly maintained facilities.
