Staff were the best part of my hotel stay. Upon arrival you are greeted by hotel staff who take your cases from the taxi, give you a cold towel to freshen up and a warm chocolate cookie for each resident at the desk when you check in. Kainat was great at the desk, George was a polite and helpful member of the staff as was Ivan who remained professional at all times. Anina who is a manager at the hotel was very accomodating and helpful and saw to it that we were comfortable at all times.
The hotel itself has a gym (although for weightlifters there are only dumbells and three machines) plus the weights only go upto 24kg for each dumbell. There are treadmills and bikes and an area to use the mat. there is steam room, sauna and a very small swimming pool which is in the shade of the hotel building for most of the day. The breakfast is epic, lots of choice and fresh, clean food, tea is not dispensed by a machine, rather you get your meal from the buffet and order tea at the table (and it arrives in minutes). We didnt want to eat scrambled eggs that were pre cooked, so my wife and I asked for fresh eggs which were also cooked up in minutes.
Rooms are clean, spacious, toiletries are by crabtree and evelyn, rooms come with bath tubs, widescreen tv, comfortable bed and all the expected amenities such as wake up call, room service etc.. the room service was excellent quality, the oriental chicken and the lentil soup were very good, i'd write more but have run out of space!

Stayed 4 days in the Auris Plaza Hotel. There are two Auris is Dubai and my cab driver got to the wrong one first.
The hotel is conveniently located, clean, has friendly staff and the rooms and facilities are fine.
In the evening its worthwhile to visit the roof for a great view and a fruit cocktail.
There is no alcohol in the Auris as it is a "Dry Hotel".
The rooms are fairly quiet and well appointed.
I would not hesitate to stay there again.
Overall excellent I would say. Staff very helpful, knowledgeable, extremely polite and nice to talk to. Very clean, nothing too much trouble. Excellent buffet breakfast, nice little snack store too if you need anything extra. Pool was fantastic, very comfy loungers and seating by the pool bar was comfortable. Hotel is located less than 10 minutes from the Mall of the Emirates and 2 metro stations which is very handy. There are always taxis outside which are very reasonably priced if you need to go somewhere.

I had a choice between this and the Citimax Al Barsha hotel near the Emirates Mall and I picked this as this seems to be closer to the Metro station.And yes it is much closer as it's only a few minutes, clearly road-marked walk from the hotel, as opposed to Citymax which is a 1km walk to the nearest Metro station.
Everything is great, from rooms to staff but the atmosphere is a bit dull for a place selling as a 4 star hotel. I didn't stay in the hotel much so it didn't matter to me. If it's within the area and the budget you are looking for, look no further.
