            Free Wifi all area

            Frankly speaking this hotel rate to expensive for all facilities, but I'm understand because of this hotel are second hotel in this area, another are five hotel star which is sister hotel of Dhafra. There are no swimming pool, no exercise facilities. Best point are beach view behind the hotel, unfortunately not from our room. Dinner rate also very expensive but there are no choice becoz nearest restaurant almost 20 km from hotel.

            Arrived and found there were No towels. Rooms have a strange disenfectant smell. Bathtub- the pull lever for tub did not work . I could not take a bath. Only shower. Nice landscaping... Since my apartment is close...I went back. I did pay for the extra day, since I paid in cash at check in. Danat was over-priced during Eid. I chanced on Dhafra. Again, I checked out, no..walked out... a day early. That says something.

            Great Location but poorly maintained”

            The staff tell me this hotel is scheduled for renovation but until that happens in think the hotel should be closed. The rooms are shabby and mouldy. The carpets smell and the whole place is run down. The staff are apologetic about this and try to help but the fact is that, even though one can use the facilities at the sister hotel a few hundred metres away, the sleeping arrangements and rooms in this hotel are unacceptable.

            Be careful what you looking for”

            If you are looking for the cheapest option to stay in a 70’s hotel with vintage a/c and moquette you are defenitely int he right place. If you don’t mind this and the overall aspect of the room you will be cjarged 65 on top of the rate for breakfast which is tho pretty good i have to sAy. The hotel itself has no direct walk in access but you can use facilities of the Premium one next to this. Which is remarkable Technically for the amount of the hotel you can be in central location of dubai with 5stars Treatement.

            Hotel is really old. Unless you get a really good deal. Wouldn’t recommend spending too much and staying here. No facility everything is next door at the 5 star Danat Dhanya and they look at you as if your a freeloader. Food isn’t great as well. Only saving grace there is a liquor shop near by but bring your mixers coz there are no shops anywhere close. Can’t even get a bottle of water
