Stayed in the hotel for an overnight break en route to Europe from Australia. Thought we were in for problems when the customs officer at Dubai Airport had never heard of the hotel. Had to arrange (and pay for!) transfer from the Airport to the hotel and return the following morning.
Reasonable check in, but a fairly ordinary room that looked very tired and shabby. The area does not live up to the hotel's description of it, as it is dirty and dusty, with the supposed park that is opposite being mainly bare dirt with a couple of sad looking trees. My wife and daughter weren't game to go out of the hotel because they didn't feel safe, and the very early morning call to prayer through nearby loud speakers doesn't help tired travellers.
Food in the restaurant was OK but very basic, and don't expect to have a drink at the bar after a long day of travel, you won't get alcohol at the hotel or in the surrounding area
