"A neat and friendly place, helpful staff"
July 11, 2016
A centrally located, yet inexpensive hotel, offering well-appointed rooms in the heart of the business district of Deira. Easily reached from Dubai International Airport, the OYO 165 San Marco Hotel is a popular choice amongst visitors to Dubai searching value-for-money accommodation, without sacrificing location. For those in Dubai on business, many of the city's corporate and financial centers are within easy walking distance of the hotel, as are many of the tourist attractions, for those visiting on leisure. Dubai itself enjoys a thriving nightlife, with a seemingly endless choice of restaurants, cafes, bars, and clubs, providing delicious cuisine from all over the world, and live entertainment well into the small hours. For a taste of what Dubai used to be like, dont miss a stroll through the winding streets of the city's historical district, where the pace of life has remained unchanged for generations.

Hotel is dated,but rooms clean.location not too good,a good 15 to 20mins walk to banyias square metro,which is main part of old Dubai..Breakfast is very poor with limited choices for western tastes.
STAY AWAY! Not worth it!”
Worst Hotel I have ever been in Dubai! Stay away if you are looking for a value for money hotel experince! Not worth it believe me! Starting from checking in, there were no parking for hotel's guests. We had to park the car at least 1km away which had to pay 50AED just to park overnight. The room was given at first didn't look the same as pictures which we complained to the reception and they tried to convince us that it was the same. After checking in we went out to have lunch and realized that we booked at the worst place in Dubai! No decent resturants, Dingy and dirty streets and even worse, Prostitues are everywhere! The hotel offered us lunch buffet for 30AED. It was really bad with only 6 dishes that are oily or badly flavored. The included breakfast was better at least. Room experince was good at first but outside noise was loud and we can hear the conversation from next room! I woke up in midnight because of an argue between couples next door! Even worse, next day morning there was no hot water whatsoever. We had to take cold showers! They didnt ask us how was our experince when checking out! What a joke! STAY AWAY!
2 thumbs up for the employees and to hotel itself.
1) Certainly not a 2 Star! It needs to be rated as a 3 star hotel which is much better than most of the 3 or for that matter 4 Star hotels in Europe! 2) All staff member are very kind, helpful and informative. 3) Very much a family hotel 4) Location of the hotel and food served in the restaurant is not all that great but still the hotel deserves a 3 Star rating. 5) Given an opportunity would like to stay in this premises again 6) Value for money
fair enough for value for money.
San Marco, Value for money”
A decent place with helpful staff.
Room service not songood”
We ordered water and nothing came
Elegant and Value for Money”
A neat and friendly place, helpful staff
good but not for staying long”
We asked for non smoking room but they still gave us smoking which made our sleep awful because of the smell. But still ok for one night last minute stay. The staff are Good.
Wouldn't stay because of location”
Location is super poor and noisy. Only scorching hot water. Room is a little dirty and old (pee stains on toilet), but nothing majorly bad. Staff is polite. No parking.
Ok just for one night's sleep”
The room was dirty, the staff was friendly.
Lack of Food choices for Asian Travelers”
No free bottled water. coffee or tea. the free breakfast doesn't have fruits to eat. pool area and sauna timings from 9am to 6pm doesn't accommodate people who are coming late night.
You get what you pay for
I stayed in the SAN MARCO for 13 nights NOVEMBER 2009 and this was my second time staying here. The location is excellent, the staff are very helpfull always with a smile on their faces.For myself who loves the beach there is a free shuttle bus every morning and also to shoping centres each afternoon
A haven in the busy city”
I have stayed three times at San Marco, which indicates my satisfaction with the rooms, the service, and the friendly staff. Usually the stay is short so I appreciate the good brakfast and the bus to the city or the beach. While in the centre of things, it is pretty quiet, and the ability to store luggage is another plus.
Location says: Opposite Hyatt Regency.....Opposite in this case means 6-700 meters away, down 100m on a pocket road..!! Have to call the hotel twice to locate it!! This is very annoying when you come late from airport, trying to find the hotel, get some sleep and up early again.. Second thing was the sound/noise from the AC fan in the room, it was on low but it was impossible to have it on nighttime...So i open the window to get some air. Just to find out that the airplanes took off / landed right above this area.. Room was small but sufficient for a night stay over, breakfast i didn’t try since i have to leave earlier than it started, staff was friendly, hotel was clean even though a bit rough.
Marco Polo in Dubai”
The hotel is a good value. The room is clean though a bit on the smaller side. The staff is efficient as it's a smaller hotel and there isn't major customer traffic. There are many local shops in this local area. You could easily pick up snacks at the local grocery stores. An internet cafe is a 1-minute walk from the hotel.
The reception is small. The staff is ok but they think they can handle 7 people at one time. So if you yel loud enough, he will help you and leave the person he is helping. Very bad for the customer. Rooms are small, breakfast don't expact much. Only for sleeping is ok. Small swiming poolon the roof.Stayed ther for 2 nights. Internetcafe just around the corner. Small supermarket just across the street. The staff was helpfull.
