    Fabulous

    Nice hotel with spacious rooms that are neatly furnished.

    Although friendly and professional, the staff (reception, room service, housekeeping,..) had little time to attend to every guest on time, and they seemed not ready for the holidays season.

    - New hotel so everything looked brand new - Staffs were helpful enough. Internet signal in our room was poor and they manage to install wireless modem in our room - Breakfast was good but with not much variety. The quality of food was great. - The room design was fantastic and it was spatious. We stayed in Delux room .

    - Our first night cost was 430dhs while the other nights were 800 dhs because of Eid. This was not fare. - Only one person per each room could work internet in the room or lobby. it is not fare since we payed more than single room cost - The location was not known by taxi drivers and they hardly could get to that place. although the hotel was seen when you approch it but there was only one to get there. Actually it was like a maze.

    Hotel was clean and everything worked well. The Mall of the Emirates was close.

    There was a construction going on next to the Hotel and the noise was very loud, especially in the mornings. It was almost impossible to sleep when they started working.

    Very good

    Reasonably located, close to Mall of the Emirates and able ti get on to Shiek Zyad road fairly easily. Staff were freindly and generally quite helpful.

    The finish in the bathroom was terrible. The floor in the bothroom looked grimey and in a suppposedly decent type of hotel is the worst I have seen. Choice and quality of food at breakfast was rather disappointing.
