I was visiting family in Dubai and stayed at this hotel as it was in the vicinity of my family. I would only recommend this for a short stay like I had.
The room I was allocated was huge, but unfortunately it was next to the housekeeping room and I was woken by the housekeeping team at 0630hrs. Also, the bathroom had no hot water and the shower wasn't full height. I asked to be moved and the room I was moved to was cramped, albeit clean with a bath, hot water and full height shower.
This is as it is described on many websites a business hotel. BA cabin crew stay at this hotel and I overheard them saying they preferred the hotel they used to stay at.
The swimming pool is on the roof so guaranteed sunshine, not like many pools which are shaded by tall surrounding buildings. There are only approximately 20 sunbeds but as long as you're by the pool early you'll get a bed. I didn't eat in the hotel so can't comment on the food.
Staff were friendly and polite.
Really liked the wifi that was available in the lobby.
