The hotel was under construction when we stayed there. This basis there was slot of debris all over the lobby and bar area upstairs. Whilst the construction seemed to go on through the day and night, there was no noise at all when in the room.
The food was not good at all, but maybe because we went during the Ramadhan period so leftovers served during the day.
The hotel location is located near the airport which is good for late night arrivals or early morning departures. For shopping, the hotel is too far away from the main shopping malls like Dubai festival city or dubai mall. That said, the taxi system works quite efficiently and the hotel can organize one even short notice.
The hotel has free wifi which you have to request for from the reception.
The hotel service is of acceptable levels for a 3 star hotel. I would recommend this hotel for anyone on a shoestring or on a short shopping trip where all one needs is a place to sleep.
I forgot to add the hotel rooms are quite spacious and there is tv with a number of good channels.
