Very sufficient
Stayed here for only one night as a place to crash after a piss up in Dubai. It did the job. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. The room itself was clean and perfunctory.

Great location!
We stayed at this hotel for the second time and again we were pleased. Thoug the hotel is located very close to the big street but we had our room on the other side, more quiet side of the building. In Dubai there is always traffic sounds so you somehow just have to live with it in this kind of a big urban city. Shallow pool is deep but was very good for our teenage swimmers. Hotel is easy to reach from the airport and room equipment is suitable especially for family vacation. We enjoyed and will come back again!

a nice hotel and good location nice staff!
they provide the good price and good service but the internet in room needs to pay extra!
basically it is nice hotel and good price and good location, but the internet in room need to extra charge seems not so nice. Normally, all the hotel in the world seems the in room internet has included in the rate. So we suggest the hotel can consider about this.

OK-ish hotel
staff, price, clean
We stayed only one night at this hotel, all the prices were very high on other hotels for this night, so we picked this one. The staff is very friendly and willing to help. The location is not very good, quite far from the subway, and the taxis have to go around when trying to drop you off. Good point is the proximity to the airport, which was good for us since we left the day after. The rooms are not particularly nice, and we couldn't get a double bed, but in their defense we arrived very early after a desert safari tour in the morning. The double bed would have been available, but we didn't want to wait 3 hours.
