“UNFRIENDLY STAFF”
Reviewed 11 June 2010

Staying at Eureka was a rather unpleasant experience. Rooms are cramped and offer just basic facilities. Even drinking water is not offered free. We asked for a wake-up call and the Front desk refused. A free airport pick-up was confirmed in writing but did not arrive. The worst part was the rude and unhelpful attitude of the staff. Check-out time ws 12 noon and they kept bugging us every 5 minutes from 11 AM onwards to vacate the room. Strongly suggest NOT to consider this Hotel in future.

Reviewed 27 May 2010

I pre arranged a transfer prior to departure via email from the airport to the hotel.On the day, there was no driver on arrival so we paid for a taxi and the reception staff reimbursed us, cool! The hotel is 7 storeys small in comparison to much bigger ones in the local area. The room was small but clean and comfortable.
Breakfast 7am-10am in the restaurant with a fresh fruit salad,tea,coffee, fruit juice, Arabic breakfast and a Western breakfast. Not 5*quality but hot and tasty. There is a transfer to the public beach (take a towel) pick up at the hotel 9am pick up back to the hotel 1230pm. The pool is small but what you need. The restaurant food is tasty and open 24hrs. There are two clubs in the hotel and Arabic one and an Indian one. We went to the Indian one and was not loving it so avoided the other one. Good hotel.

For a budget hotel, they have an excellent service. The breakfast menu is different everyday. Your room gets cleaned daily. And the location is at the center of the city.

Friendly and very helpful staff, rooms are clean and well kept. Located right behind the famous Al Riqqa road in Deira. There is a swimming pool and 2 night clubs. Food at the restaurant was excellent.

The hotel is in a good location for downtown Deira, but many taxi drivers have not heard of it because it is small. The rooms are small but clean. The breakfast buffet is a limited choice but it is okay and changes daily. The metro station to the other side of the creek (Bur Dubai) is only 2 minutes walk - the Rigga road.
