Stop over but on looking for good value”

Room is Clean, Staff are Nice, Cheap

Do not stay at this hotel if you want to sleep as the Music from the club is thumping throughout the hotel from 10am to 4am. This hotel was ideal for me because i was stopping over in Dubai for 2 nights and both nights i would not be sleeping in the hotel (one night i was clubbing until 5am and the other night i had an overnight desert safari). What was most important for me about the hotel was it was next to the train station, clean and cheap (why pay more for a hotel that i would not sleep in?). The hotel room was surprisingly clean for the price that you pay. The internet in the room did not work - staff were unable to help on this and just told me to go down to the lobby to connect to the free wifi - Not ideal but the staff was nice about it that it did not bother me too much. The hotel walls are very thin and you can hear people's conversation. Shower pressure was very low and there was no instant hot water (i just left the boiler on continuously to get instant hot water). Dubai is quite cold during December and this hotel did not have heaters. I switched the air con off as 18 degrees was just too cold. I did not find a safe in the room but there are safe deposit boxes in the reception big enough to hold large laptops.

Good stay even for one day”

Large room with extra bed, close to restaurants and shopping mall, and price rate is reasonable

The room is very spacious for my family especially for my two year old daughter. The bathroom has hot/cold water and good size as well. I used the room safe but when I try opening it did not open. The maintenance had to reset the password and put in new battery which is a bit inconvenience for us. There are two elevator but one is not working which is another turn off since the space is only for 4 adults. Local area shopping mall is within walking distance along with the railing system. The railing system takes us anywhere around the city of Dubai.

Great Location Next to Karama metro, Amazing food”

New furniture, big rooms, good customer service

I visited hotel after cancelling my stay at YHA, dubai. It was the best experience. Best location, new furniture, infact the rates were economical. Only cons was due to new furniture there was no internet connection in the rooms and needs to be accessed in reception area. Otherwise I would recommend the stay at hotel. Also for new travellers please book your room in the lower floors, as during night time you will hear loud music due to music on top floors.

A lot to like and a lot to dislike”

Location, value, cheap dining and shopping nearby

the location was excellent, perhaps a 90-second walk from the al karama metro station makes it easy to access from the airport (especially terminals 1 and 3, which have stations on the same metro line). the metro makes it easy to access the tourist attractions in the south of dubai, and the karama area has plenty of cheap places to eat and plenty of affordable shopping. the hotel's price made it a good buy, the standard room had a roomy king-size bed (technically two twins pushed together) and passably nice decor, and the little extras were top notch (quality shampoos and toiletries, a good breakfast, a complimentary bottle of water, etc.). that said, there were a few things to dislike as well. the building didn't seem as new as much of dubai, and our room smelled of mildew any time we came back from having been away. also, the guest rooms are on floors 1-3 and floor 4 has two nightclubs. we were on floor 3, and when we went to bed around 2am, loud covers of western songs were still quite audible above us.

One of the cheaper hotels in Dubai with good value for money. Located just next to Al Karama metro station means easy access to all of Dubai, including the airport. Shopping and food are also easily available around the area. Breakfast was just so-so. Internet is free but it is terribly slow and most of the time disconnected.

Hotel location are good. Its in front of Dubai Metro. Price reasonable and room for a couple is big enough. 1 complain is when I book for the hotel, request for hotel shuttle from airport. But no response and no feedback even from email. When reaching the airport, no one pick up and have to call the hotel. Then only inform no hotel shuttle . So have to arrange other means of transport to the hotel.

Big Philippino club on the 4th floor

This hotel was in a great location. It was easy to grab a taxi right in front of the hotel. The price was very reasonable, and the staff was very friendly. There is a big Philippino club on the 4th floor that I did not get the time to check out as I had a late check-in and early check-out time. It was however a bit noisy, as I was in a room on the third floor. I wasn't able to get much sleep, but it was perfect for my price range and close vicinity to the airport.

The price of the hotel is OK. It will be one of the best prices you will find in Dubai. The staff is friendly and you don't get any "surprises" like hidden charges when you check out. You pay and done. No more charges to your pocket. Few points to consider and get better: 1. The location of the hotel even though is good for many of the main sites it is surrounded by night clubs, food places, markets which makes the area very crowed, loud and not quiet at all. 2. There is no parking. Only a few public spaces in front of the hotel. Apart from that either you are lucky in finding one or pay 10aed for the hotel valet who will park it wherever he can or just drive around until you find space. 3. The hotel is very old so forget about new facilities, fancy beds or TV. However, it is good for the price you get. 4. The food in the restaurant is very limited. Only Indian food. Overall the hotel is OK because is very cheap. Recommended for traveling with limited budgets and no children.

This is one of the better hotels in Karama. Located close to ADCB Metro Station and bang on the Shaikh Zayed road. There are quite a few restaurants in the vicinity. A special mention of Joy the lady at the front reception who greets you with a beaming smile everytime. She has been at this hotel for quite a while and is a great asset to the hotel. The rest of the staff and security too are very pleasant and very helpful. The rooms though not new, are still clean and pretty well sized. Wi-Fi is good, good breakfast spread though more inclined to the Indian palate which was good for me. They have pubs and decent nightlife, so expect some music noise in the rooms at nights. Not too bad though. This was my second stay here, and sure to visit it again.

Location, location, location

The hotel is located close to the metro and is fairly central for the older Dubai districts such as Diera, Bur Dubai etc. The metro makes it easy to get to all the major malls / attractions in Dubai. Apart from this however, it is a pretty average hotel. There is nothing extraordinary and there is nothing thats particularly bad. So nothing exceptional but a fairly okay hotel that scores average. Okay for a couple of nights business stay. Not recommended for families with children.
