The main thing is that they have a ton of hidden charges (Internet, expensive stuff,...), and that some of the staff seems like they cut outside deals (they get thw rental car from their friends instead of a well known company)... The hotel itself is ok, but not four stars in a long shot

Waste of money

Posted 22-Jan-2016
Not worth the money please don't choose this hotel 7 members of my friends had experienced problems and some of the staff rude and liars. Had spoken to manager he only gave complimentary snack. Over all I wouldn't recommend.

Great Stay, really !

Posted 05-Jan-2016
Pros: Staff, View, Location
Yes, this hotel needs to freshen up their (bath) rooms, it's old and a bit outdated Yes, the beach close to the hotel is closed Yes, there is some noise around the day because there is work done Yes, you've to ugrade your room to one on te frontside from the hotel (includes skyline view and premium internet) but... The staff is amazing, the rooms are big and superclean, the rooftoppool is great, the breakfast is good, the terrace we're you can eat your breakfast has an stunning view, the restaurants surrounding the hotel are great and the neighboorhood is real arabic, we loved it. The busshuttle to Kite beach is free at ten, but you can also take the taxi when tha's to early, it's cheap ! There's is free cofffe, tea and water each day in your room and housekeeping makes your bed twice a day! We loved avery minute of our 7 days and when we will returne to Dubai, we will come again ! Thanks to all!.

aardig hotel voor sightseeing.

Posted 03-Jan-2016
Cons: renovatie afmaken
Tussen het oude gedeelte en nieuwe gedeelte in. Alle bezienswaardigheden zijn daarmee vanaf een centraal punt te bereiken. Het hotel is gedateerd en behoeft onderhoud. De kamers zijn echter zeer ruim wat een pluspunt oplevert. We hadden een premium kamer met zicht op de Burj Kalifa en prima internet (wel jammer dat bellen via facetime of whatssapp (en mogelijk ook skype) niet ondersteund wordt). Leuke restaurantjes in de omgeving, verder weinig vertier in de directe omgeving van het hotel. Het restaurant verzorgd een prima ontbijt. Voor diner vonden we het te ongezellig. Let er op dat de Boston bar voor kinderen onder de 18 gesloten is vanaf 8 uur. goed en behulpzaam personeel het hotel is ongeschikt voor een strandvakantie

Really far, rubbish management.

Posted 02-Jan-2016
Wouldn't stay here again, other then the really efficient staff the hotel was a total let down. You'll be spending a fortune on cabs and might get stuck in a room with a view of an ugly building like me. The management are non existent and it's the 21st century yet you have to pay for WiFi.

Very nice hotel. Close to Dubai centre.

We really enjoyed our four nights in this hotel. Very neat and tidy, and their staff are superb. . I want to use this opportunity to say a big thank you to Potia for sorting our rooms that very night we arrived in the hotel.

Good hotel, lively area, no free internet!

Posted 18-Dec-2015
Pros: The staff was very nice, the rooms are big, beds were comfortable, you get a sofa and a coffee table. The restaurant upstairs has good choice of food.
Cons: Should have free internet and a business center. The rooms are very dark, more lights please. Laundry, food and drinks are expensive inside the hotel
Location: Lots of affordable shops and restaurants near by. Also supermarkets, laundries and barbershops, which limits the costs of hotel "extra" prices.
Stayed 12 days for a business trip which had a lot to do with the Word Trade Center, it's not next door but I liked the lively area, lots of people in the street at night, lots of normally priced shops and places to eat. Overall stay was good. Everything is super expensive inside the hotel, but the neighborhood has a lot to offer, do your grocery shopping and laundry outside. It's 10 times cheaper. As we were there for business, we needed internet to work. Only buying a package. As a single package can allow multiple devices (4), be smart if you and yours friends/colleagues are multiple rooms. You can share the codes. Also the business center does not exist anymore, you can send your printouts to the reception. Not ideal but ok. The restaurant upstairs has some special nights (meat night, seafood night etc) with a all-you-can-eat formula, that's worth it because as a guest, you get a discount voucher. The pub downstairs (Boston) is a nice change of pace, and does not pollute the hotel with any noises or whatsoever. One side of the hotel faces a building, very quiet (cannot hear the prayers) but not much lights in the room. The other side has the view of Dubai skyline, lots of lights, but then you get the prayers.

Nice hotel, close to everything.

Great service, room gets cleaned twice a day, staff is very helpful. Easy to come and go everywhere you need to. The only problem is the poor Internet quality, but the staff makes sure you get help every time.
