We loved our stay at this hotel, it suited our needs perfectly. The only thing we missed was having a bar at the pool. The hotel itself is spotless, the towels and sheets are changed as requested. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. The dining room staff are excellent, I am gluten intolerant and the staff and chefs... More

The hotel was nice. Could not really fault it. The area it is in is nice and close to Larissa Station which was good but the area generally is run down at the moment, but I did feel safe. A bit of a walk to the closest restaurants, but there is a Carrefors across the road which was a bonus.

This is apparently one of the oldest hotels in Dubai but has been tastefully modernised and decorated. My one night stay was very comfortable and it would be hard to fault the room. The hotel is, as far as I am aware, 'dry', so it might be better to look elsewhere if this is important to you. On the other... More

Booked this hotel after reading several positive reviews in Tripadvisor and as usual, it paid off. Nice hotel, nice staff and decent accommodation. I travelled to Dubai with my Mom and my brother and we stayed here for 5 nights. We did not use their restaurant or other room service but our stay was calm, peaceful and enjoyable. I would... More
