                  Enjoyed my stay at the hotel because it had all the facilities ranging from sauna, beauty parlor, restaurant, coffee shop, all night cafe, disco, and many other things. The hotel had everything one can need so you don’t have to go outside the hotel. The hotel had excellent service. The TV was good and the bed was comfortable. Moreover, the rooms and the bathroom were clean, well maintained and presentable than other hotels.

                  selling points

                  Services charges were uninvited. Hotel rooms didn't have hot-water kettle available that we could use to make coffee for ourselves. Instead besides tea, hot-water was also available at additional charge. The receptionist though were welcoming but couldn't provide much guidance about going about exploring Dubai. We had to do that on our own or with help from friends

                  position, rooms

                  I call the hotel before making the reservation and they told me at the reception that they dont charge the 3rd person if we dont need the extra bed. at the c in the reception told us that even if we dont want the extra bed they will charge the 3rd person... really bad comunication. I think the team at the reception is not working in the same line and they ruined my stay including my expectaction. They force us to pay! Management if invisible and not responsible only simple employee are taking care of complaints! with no gratification during the stay. The booking was for my wife and their colleagues and when i called the hotel at the c in after my wife told me that they charge them, the employee was really rude and when i ask to transfer the call to the duty manager they told me `` if you want sir i can give the number of my manager i cant transfer the call` really bad and with no follow up at all! really bad experience. I dont want add anything else this is enough to realize how professional is the management of Smana hotel al raffa
