Recent guest reviews

Another great stay, service is again 5 stars, the room was large, modern, clean and the bed and pillows extremely comfortable. Walking distance to the Mall of the Emirates with shops, restaurants and mini markets all close by. Rooftop had amazing views of Burj Al Arab at night and the pool area was very relaxing. Highly recommended

Stay at this place every time i get to Dubai.Very convenient.Mall of emirates is walk-able form here. Sharaf dg metro station is very close and walkable.It has indian and lebanese restaraunts nearby as well.Some good coffee shops as well.Limo service available with the hotel.Breakfast is very good with a lot of variety.Hotel is a bit costly.

Executive room was lovely and well maintained. Complimentary water was excellent, you did not need to ask for more. Staff well extremely pleasant and helpful. Situated a 10 minute walk fro the Emrite Mall and metro stations. Not near the coast line but well situated for visits. Food was good especially breakfast, great variety. Asian restaurant disappointing but Indian restaurant excellent.

Checked in quite late and requested "ocean facing" room, which I thought would offer views of the ocean a few hundred meters away. Woke up to a massive billboard view... Room was fairly large as I was "upgraded" to an executive room, so large in fact that one could barely make out what was shown on the 32" TV in the far corner of the room. Not that it mattered much, as most of the channels on offer were mostly in Arabic, anyway. Otherwise not a bad hotel and would not mind a longer stay if the correct room was allocated, as requested. Pool area and rooftop bar looks very inviting and offers fantastic views.

The hotel is very well located, the staff were amazing from the moment I checked in to calling room service to calling housekeeping. I do not have one negative comment to say write about this hotel. Breakfast was very good and the swimming pool very nice, I highly recommend this hotel to anyone especially when value for money is taken to consideration. Enjoy. I will be planning to return asap.

I have made my reservation through the main official website for the hotel. My stay was for a business meeting that was being held at Deira, Dubai. Yet due to properties being sold out there, I have decided to follow my gut feeling and stay at this hotel, which I have always wanted to try out. I have arrived pretty late from my flight and was greeted with truly warm welcome at the reception. My room was upgraded instantly for my loyalty membership. The room was spacious as you may see from the pictures. Truly worth the money for the kind of upgrade that you would get. The furniture is all-new, clean and smelling fresh. The staff overall are very joyous to treat you with respect and help you in every way possible. I have visited three spots in this hotel and they are the Garage bar, the rooftop bar and the sports bar in the ground floor. Each had its own ambiance and crowd. Yet, it was never overcrowded nor the service was let down because of this. I have preferred the sports bar over all three since I like watching live soccer game in a cozy joint like this one. I have not tried the breakfast buffet although I have paid for it, yet I always overslept and almost missed on my meetings. I have tried their in-room service and I have gone for the breakfast set and it was truly good. Overall, I would truly recommend staying at this hotel and I would go for it again. I would like mention Mr. Mansoor and his female colleague at the reception for their warm and great welcome for me on May 6th night shift. Also regards for Mr. Edward the night on-duty manager on May 8th for his full support.

Very convenient location next to metro station and Emirates Mall. Close to Dubai Internet and Media cities. Good breakfast. Excellent food at the thai restaurant as well as at the top bar. This outside bar next to the pool was my preferred place. Good quality gym. The room was great. Excellent service for affordable price.

Located around 20 minutes from Jebal Ali Free Zone and a few minutes walk from Metro this hotel worked perfectly for me Good service, typical clean rooms I found hard to fault, although not as luxurious as the sister hotel Crowne Plaza Had breakfast and spent the happy hour in the Club Room so definitely worth paying for this extra, particularly as the drinks are pricey in the bar Hotel also has a rooftop pool but I didn't use Will use this hotel again

I haven't spend nights over there. It was actually a 5 day workshop. But I was impressed by the customer oriented staff starting from the bellboy. When I first arrived I was asking whether there is a place I can park and the answer was: "Of course sir! this is your home!" I felt this attitude across all the staff I encountered. The venue was super clean and very well maintained. The food is quite decent. I really recommend this hotel.

We stayed just 2 nights and it was fine for a stop over. This hotel is very clean, the rooms were quite a good size, nicely decorated, and the pool on the roof was very welcome. It is close to the malls and to the train station. It has a nice rooftop bar. The staff were very helpful at all times. We enjoyed our stay as it was close to all that we wanted.
