I stayed here two nights this past Feb. Affordable and clean hotel but nothing special. Walking distance to the mall but not much else around it. Kind of boring location with little happening at night or during the day. Good for the price you pay and the place is clean and nice but location not the best.

This hotel was not the best because when you book it think the price is good but when you get there they add 20% on the bill and stitch you up the rooms are average nothing special and your quite far from New Dubai I would not recommend this hotel.

Very nice and clean hotel. Could see Burj khalifa from hotel. Roof top Pool was very nice with the hot weather .A bit out of it so had to either taxi or train to most places . Lots to do in Dubai so we're kept busy . A must has got to be the dessert safari well worth the money

Room 610 has a great view but overlooks Kuwait Road, which is always busy and noisy, and a mosque across the road with a loud call to prayers, including 5am! That said, the hotel's location is good as it's an easy 15-20minute walk to the Creek and slightly less to Burjuman Mall, which has plenty of eateries and is one... More
