4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed at this hotel for the first time, before stayed at a lot of different hotels in Dubai. At the first day there was misunderstanding between hotel staff and my tourism agency, but, hotel staff showed very good manner and helped me to resolve this problem. Especially I have to express my thanks to Ms. Nilda from reception. I got very nice viewed room to creek side, room was clean and very accurate. I satisfied with service and behavior of full staff! Thanks a lot for these nice people! Will come again.

The hotel has a good location not so far from the airport and not far from main attractions of Dubai. It is near a water canal. From roof top terrace is very nice view on Burj Khalifa and Skyscrapers of Dubai. By taxi you can get anywhere for good price. The room was very nice with big comfortable bed, nice bathroom with toiletries, coffee, tea, water as complimentary. Everything was clean and tidy. In the room was also slippers, iron, fridge. Only one disturbing thing was emergency light in the room which was lightening whole night near the door inside. I could not switch it off. The hotel has also super pool on roof top with great view on Dubai. In the lobby serve tea with sweet dates. Receptionist were kind and polite. We got welcome drink after arrival. The price was reasonable for the offered quality. Next time I will probably choose this hotel again.

The rooms are very big and comfortable. They also have iron and iron table for clothes. The cleaning in room shouldn't even be called cleaning. We even found bottles and papers under the water. The swimming pool and in general all the facilities of the hotel are not well maintained. The plugs were dangerous, I would say. The phone was not working. The view of the room was covered with dust on the windows. The swimming pool is very small but with very good view. The drinks are very expensive. One juice and one seven up 20 euro. The hotel is 15 minutes walking to the union or to the AL Riga metro station. I booked room with sea view and I paid 90 euro per night with no breakfast. It was last minute offer. But if you ask me now, that does not deserve even 50 euro per night.

This was my very first stay at Samaya, and, honestly, it was my BEST EXPERIENCE! The staff were very friendly, and professional. The rooms exceeded my expectations of a 4-star hotel. The strategic location, near the Creek, enhances accessibility. My Royal Suite had all amenities, as promised. The part that I like the most is the exemplary service and facilities, that the hotel provides. I was treated well, especially by the Hotel Manager. The ease of check-in is yet another aspect. Overall, my stay was a 5-star!!!!!!

Had an amazing stay at Samaya Hotel. Amazing buffet breakfast with lot of variety. Stayed for 3 nights from 21st September - 24th September. Courteous staff, clean rooms. Would like to stay again. Only thing is metro is far from here.

- Very good location, 10 minutes away from the airport - the creek is across the street, the creek view rooms are recommended - very friendly area, minimarkets, laundry, pharmacy, cafes ...etc.. are a walking distance - the staff are friendly and ready to help - the breakfast is good, diverse and the restaurant is renovated in a very nice way. -rooms are quiet and relaxing, the beds are super comfy - the gym is suitable for short stay, not spacious but does accommodate - pool on the roof, amazing view of Dubai and the airport and the creek, well maintained the area of Samaya Hotel Deira is very friendly , and what makes Samaya the right choice is that it is really friendly hotel.

We stayed twice at the Samaya. Once outward bound for start of cruise from Abu Dhabi, and the second time on return from end of cruise at Athens. The Samaya is very comfortable with welcoming staff who made us feel very much at home. We both times arrived late ( around 12am) and we received a prompt and efficient check-in. Great breakfast. The taxi fare from the airport is very reasonable.

Very clean, quite, well located hotel close to airport road & shopping malls. From the minute we arrived to the time we left we enjoyed every minute of our stay. We will come again soon for sure with the family.

this is my second visit and stay in this 5 star basic hotel. very clean, quite, well located hotel close to airport road, shopping malls, marina and golf course as well as some of the government offices such as Municipality, Chamber of Commerce, Telephone exchange, airlines and some tourist attractions this less known hotel provides all the comfort that businessmen or families look for. complimentary wifi, large spread of breakfast, option of discounted meals if one needs to go for lunch or dinner in the same hotel of stay, lounges around for lazy cup of coffee or short meetings, Samaya provides you all the comfort a frequent traveller like me prefers. One drawback but is this is no alcohol permit hotel and managed by sizeable Arabic speaking staff by very polite and hospitable. Restaurants managed by Filipino and Indian staff offers variety of Arabic, western and Indian options with vegetarians and diet conscious people as well. I would definitely look forward to revist and stay in this quite hotel as compared to many loud, garish and crowded hotels that Dubai is known for, a must for families and busy businessman!

From the minute we arrived to the time we left we enjoyed every minute of our stay. We received early check in as we arrived at 9am check in was at 2 .The room it self was clean and roomy, and was cleaned every day .Breakfast was amazing eggs made to order tomatoes ,beans ,bacon and cakes and donuts and many other options. The swimming pool was a reasonable size and was warm.The staff were very friendly and always helped out when we needed any information about Dubai. The metro was in walking distance of the hotel .All in all a tremendous stay I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone.
