I have previously stayed at Astoria last November 2012 and had no hesitation to book a room for 4 nights 21st Nov 2013. I was offered complimentary pick up and drop but declined as I was travelling business class with Emirates and so had Chauffeur service.
The reception staff were brilliant worked professionally under the front desk manager Mr Alankar Bokar. There was always a friendly smile and assistance offered and nothing was too much trouble. The reception will arrange tours throughout the UAE at competitive prices and are reliable.
My room was situated on the 3rd floor was adequately furnished with a decent size bathroom running hot water 24x7. There was a fridge and TV and a multitude of sockets scattered around the room. The room was immaculately clean and room service was excellent. The room was cleaned dally mostly while I was out and I left an assortment of items in the room none was ever touched. The staff at this hotel are very honest so nothing to worry about.
Breakfast was much improved since my last stay, for example orange and other juices offered were original and not watered down squash! There were a few choices to satisfy most guests and I noticed if you enjoyed Indian food this was also on display. American breakfast, tea and coffee and fresh fruit offered daily.
The locality of Astoria was ideal in the midst of restaurants, shops and very close to the Abra & Metro stations. The large supermarket Carrefour was just a few minutes walk away.
All in all a very well located hotel with excellent service all round. I would ask anyone reading some of the reviews to ignore the negative and nasty suggestions and come and see for yourself with an open mind.
I feel that this hotel is very suitable for family's and I would not hesitate to bring my family here which they would enjoy.
I would like to thank Mr Alankar and his team for their help and assistance and have booked a room for march 2014 which will be my next stay at Astoria.
