                Pros: Comfortable, no bed bugs Cons: staffs are not pleasant, charged us 75AED for 30mins late check-out ( just because we didn't provide them the Room key even though informed them about the check-out before the std check-out time). To be frank, it fully destroyed our holiday mood. No consideration for guests. No variety items served in breakfast. It was almost same items on all these 5days stay.

                What can I say... it's a cheap hotel but actually pretty good for the price. Big club downstairs if Filipina girls are your thing. Close to a supermarket, restaurants, local gym... everything I need. Also a short taxi ride from Bur Juman Mall. No complaints here.

                it's an old building converted to hotel. the room I stayed was quiet big but the AC was very weak. service is average and you are not allowed to bring visitors to the room. There are a few night clubs with live bands where you can chill and have fun with the girls. Girls are not allowed inside the room though I did see some making way. The best part is the location - near metro station and among the Indian diaspora. Food is in abundance everywhere. Bit noisy at night due to the glaring volume of music from the club's. Not suitable for family but for solo travellers it's value for money.

Overall a good value for money place to stay. I will be staying at the Karama again.

The hotel facilities and rooms are modern and clean and the pool while not large is of a good standard. The staff at the hotel were alway friendly and will to assist in anyway with a smile.A couple of good night clubs and restaurants in the hotel, which does give some background noise early morning with music being played in the clubs, but it is not too loud.

                Bad reception staff on check-in i did face a bit of issue with them. we are a 2 person and i chose this hotel because of the location and i had a business in the area and i had to came early to check-in while my other person planned to check-in later that evening. receptionist refused to check me in and asked the other person's identification which i did not have with me at that time. i told them later when the person is gonna check in you will get the identification, refused with a bad attitude. The philippine staff simply put my Passport to aside the way she put my Passport is like it has no value. listen lady, have some respect that book have more value than to your country and your job that book is lucky enough to travel the world and has great authority "You guys are only a 3 star property and acting like that" i'm a frequent visitor in 5 star properties and the welcome i get is unbeatable. A/C kept crashing and water leak / bathroom leak / Club noise bad sound soundproof.

Amenities are basic (only bath towels, toilet paper & soap), WiFi doesn’t really work (connected at first then can’t reconnect if go out and come back. Cleanliness of room is satisfactory. Staff attitude was not good. Limited facilities, gym closes at 19:00, which should have stayed open later

                Hotel is good but Agoda made me suffer. Agoda did not confirm the Hotel and I was stranded for 5 hours outside at reception. Agoda booking confirmation says guaranteed reservation but the Hotel denied the booking paper I was having. I called Agoda customer service but there was no one to answer only playing music. Eventually at 5 pm I was able to check in that too after too many request to the Hotel. This is first time I booked through Agoda and seems I will never book again through Agoda

                Not really for Westerners.....”

                I chose this place for the location as I was just on a short stopover and meeting friends in the local bar. The hotel room is nice, big and clean which is the main thing. The staff (reception) as terrible. I shall put this down to a Culture thing. The majority of guests here are from the East and lack what I would consider as basic manners.(waiting in line, saying please/thank-you etc) You get a better reception at other hotels. The wifi is ridiculous! They give you a voucher for 24 hours which can only be used on one device! This is 2017! You can get free wifi on buses these days! If you're on a tight budget - then I guess this place is o.k. I think Westerners would be comfortable somewhere else.

                Disappointing”

                Clean room and parking

                Not the best hotel you can find. Staff are unfraindly at reception and need a lot of understanding when booking online. The rooms are okay, the place full has 3 clubs and you must pay as a gust too...very busy and noisy form 12am to 3 am. GUEST ARE NOT ALLOWED if they didn't checking with you. Consider an utter arrive if possible.

                A decent place to stay”

                Location, staff, price

                As a single traveler for a one night stay, it's a decent place. There's some renovations going on currently, so it can be a little noisy during the day, but not too much. The A/C unit could have used a bit of a cleaning. At night, the music from the clubs could barely be heard, and I stayed on the 2nd floor. Staff was extremely helpful. Plenty of places to eat nearby and in the hotel, nothing seemed to be overpriced.
