Not 4 star
Near to airport. Near Dubai Creek. Near Irish Village
Irish pub dingy smokey hovel. Room clean but horrible mismatched furniture and decor which was old. Orange curtains green carpet mustard armchairs for example. Bathroom needs modernized. Breakfast not worth the hassle of getting up

good location, great survive, staffs are friendly
Hotel's location is really good so I could find the hotel from Arriga station immediately. Room's amenity was enough, a break fast was great buffet. Any countrie's people may be satisfied. Staffs are really polite and friendly. When I checked out, I had big luggage. At first I planed to leave my luggage to the airport until flight time. But the hotel kept that for me until mid night. It was really helpful survice for me. So I could enjoy the Burj Khalifa SKY lounge thank to them. I like this hotel, if I have a chance, I will stay again.
