The room was smaller than my previous hotel in Dubai but perfect for me as I was a solo traveler. The Mall and Metro were 5 minutes walk from the hotel so traveling to anywhere in Dubai was quick and efficient. Rooftop pool and bar was a plus with a lifeguard in attendance if you had children. Enjoyed The Huddle...

The hotel itself was nice, breakfast etc. was ok and the 24-hour checkin was helpful. Although I found some reception stuff unhelpful - we stayed for business and the reception staff kept refusing to book us taxis even for peak times.

Good experience in this hotel for the price you get. Value for money. The sports bar is good; food was great. Only adverse comment is the wall is not sound proof and you can hear the noise in the adjacent rooms. I did not try the restaurant.
