    The location.

    We booked through your website for 2 adults and 2 children (6&8). When we got to our room there was only 1 bed. The hotel staff blamed your website for this, saying they don't have any rooms with 2 beds and expected us to all sleep in 1 bed. While at reception, another guest also complained about the same issue, so it's obviously a common problem. We found crisps on the floor of our room. The sheets were too small for the bed. We had to pay an extra aed180 for an extra guest bed. We could hear music from the hotel night club in our room until the early hours, then a very noisy party in one of the rooms afterwards.

    Localização boa, tamanho do quarto excelente. Good location and the good size of the room.

    The breakfast was not good at all, or good for muslims only. The shower was not working properly and the air conditioning had just one very low temperature. I will never return to this hotel. O café da manhã era ruim, a temperatura da água para banho variava muito e o ar condicionado só ficava em uma temperatura muito fria. Nunca mais volto lá.

    location is good

    This is the fifth time I stayed in this Hotel, the first time the hotel was new and the staff were nice I can give it 10/10 at that time, after that each time I can drop it by 1 or two points until this time which I will give it 0/10; the rooms became used and not clean and the staff became rude. I don't recommend any one stay there again.

    The deco

    1. Check-in time took around over 30min 2. The TV reception was not unacceptable even after 2 attempts of the staff trying to fix it. 3. Was not informed that the speed-dials where not working on the telephone. Spent 30 min trying to call someone, however all the lines where engaged. Also the bed side phone was completely not working. 4. Shower door was broken. 5. Indian Temptation bar/ restaurant was more like under aged girls been paid to dance, therefore was not a suitable place to dine with your children. 6. Very loud music and people voices where continuously on till 3.30am this was a big disturbance to our sleep on the 6 floor. 2 complaints where logged with the duty manager, however nothing was resolved. Event after numerous complaints we were not given the choice to move rooms, nor where we offered any complimentary service.

    I like the location only which is near to the entertainments places in Dubai

    I am considering my stay in this hotel is one of my worst experiences ever, for 3 days no body cleaned my room or changed the towel, the speaking way of the room service staff is very rude and out of hospitality, the receptionists are tough speakers and have no sense in dealing with gusts, and also there is no valet parking and you have to park your car alone and spend time in the hotel basement in looking for a space for your car.

    non everything was not to the standed and I would not recommend to any of my family or friends to stay. The staff where very rude and not friendly.

    The room not clean

  • Group of friends
    5.0

    The hotel was impressive from the outside, as it was inside the lobby, the rooms were spacious but could do with updating. The bar was ok but like all hotels overpriced.

    I was very disappointed with the check in, we waited over 30 minutes to check in. The system is antiquated, you should take a look at the Mecure Hotel or Traders Abu Dhabi, first rate check in time, quick and efficient and the staff are always welcoming and smiling The bath was stained and could have done with some bleach and elbow grease. The room sevice was very slow, asked for the mini bar and paid a deposit of AED 400 and the bar was never filled.

    nice hotel , good location , large room,

    long time of chick in , room is not ready at time .long time of discus about the room. Braekfast is very poor , just first time only and stop.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    The hotel was very clean, staff friendly and helpful. All hotel facilities were available and functional. The hotel was 7 mins walk from Mall of Emirates and metro. Plenty to do locally (ski Dubai, cinema, shopping, restaurants and salons). Free shuttle service to and from Jumeira public beach and Dubai Mall. There is building work going on locally but did not affect us at all.

    Nothing really. One of the hotel restaurants provided a dish which contained nuts and failed to notify us.

  • Family with children
    5.4

    The hotel is located conveniently close to the Emirates Mall and away from the busy streets of Dubai

    The service is poor and staff lacked proper supervision especially in house-keeping. The bathroom also could do with some refurbishment.
