budget hotel, a little tired

The hotel is a budget hotel, the room had a kitchen which is a bonus. I was moved to the Jormand sister hotel due to not having the room configuration requested available. The Jormand was a little nicer. However the sheets were pretty old, stained, there were stains on the chairs, the built in stove did not function (staff brought a replacement up). The staff was fine. If the management spent a little more on maintenance this would be fine even though the hotel is older, but my experience was it was a little dumpy, so I wouldn't recommend it, spend a little more and go elsewhere.

Reading at all previous review it has changed a lot. You can feel it. The Manager Surjeet Sinha with visible disability will make every efforts for you to enjoy your stay in this hotel. Also the lady at reception has shown change in customer service provided.

Average

Staff's are very helpful, Good Location. Room needs to be cleaned more, and comforter should be changed. You need to inform the staff in order to get a makeover. Anyhow you get the value of what you pay.

Worst hotel stay ever

Most of the staff here was rude. We checked in past midnight, and the front desk took 10 minutes to check us in because he was taking a personal call. We get to the room, and I am not impressed. The room is all tiled. There isn't carpet anywhere. The walls need cleaning and paint. The TV, remote, and phone are covered in grime. There is a kitchen with a full size refrigerator/freezer. There is no mini-bar. The bathroom was a complete mess. There is a small washer in the bathroom. The shower pressure was barely a trickle. At best, the water was luke warm. The shower curtains smelled like mold. The toilet seat was broken at the hinge and would fall off the toilet. The sink faucet would leak and fall onto the floor, and when turned off, the faucet would make a horrible rumbling noise that keeps you awake at night. But all of that is nothing compared to this. The first night, we asked for extra towels because the ones given to us had a funky smell and some had distinct stains. We also asked for extra because they do not provide hand towels. They must not understand that "towels" is plural for more than 1. So we asked for another. The next day, we threw all of our towels on the floor so we would get fresh ones during the turn-down service. After we get back to the hotel for our 2nd night, we found out they just took the towels from the floor and rehung them as if they were clean and new. It was obvious that they were not clean because they were damp, smelly, and had the same distinct stains. I was seriously debating getting another hotel after that night even though I prepaid for 3 nights. I should have done that because they picked up the towels from the floor the 2nd and 3rd nights and rehung them. It's fortunate I had my own towels at the time and I used those instead of the floor tossed ones. I would never come back to this hotel again, and would not even recommend this place to people I dislike.

Reasonable value for money

This hotel is nothing fancy, but a lot cleaner than hotels in this price range which is the most important criteria for me. The front desk staff are good/helpful, but the reataurant is fairly mediocre yet pricey. I left my camera in the room on checkout, not realising this til I got home. Typical of the honesty found amongst Dubai people it was looked after until a friend picked it up for me. overall thumbs up for a little hotel that a lot of 3* or 4* places could learn from.

For AED10 taxi ride dine in the South Asian restaurants in Bur Dubai, but dont choose the ones with fancy tablecloths. Choose the ones with ordinary Pakistani/Indians eating in them. You wont go wrong.

DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT STAY HERE

having arrived quite late in the night, to what i can only describe as a tip, the hotel was incredibly grim from the outside and the reception looked like some seedy looking motel. We were shown to our rooms, on way, we saw stained matresses just lying in the corridor, and just an accumulation of dirt everywhere. the only redeeming feature, is the rooms are spacious, but the shower curtain was stained yellow, the fridge was full of grease and the beds were not only small, but you felt disgusting just sitting in them. despite having already pre-paid for the hotel, I spent 15 min in the room and checked out the room to find another hotel.
