This Hilton hotel is in the Deira side of the creek and is a 15-20 min walk from a metro station. In the summer months it is very hot and humid to take a walk anywhere so it is best to take a taxi ride to the metro or to your final destination.
The hotel itself is ok, not a 5-star I would say regardless of how it is advertised. We had a nice corner glass paned room that was nicely cleaned and tidied by the time we returned. Hotel staff try to help out in every way possible.
Dubai is an expensive city and everything costs money, and the hotel is no exception. We were charged for phone calls etc. that we weren't expecting. However on the plus side, we did have access to the exec lounge and free breakfast everyday at the hotel.
The other thing about Dubai is that while people are mostly very friendly, they are inflexible and seem helpless when it comes to giving you a break or extending small freebies. For instance, not much flexibility with check out times at the hotel. I am not expecting goods and services for free by any means, but things like small telephone charges were not waived given already high room rates. Outside, at an internationally known pizza restaurant, our waitress messed up our order but no credit was offered and in the end, we were charged for every small thing including a water bottle that cost only 1 dirham, about 27 cents. Rules are strict on one hand and on the other people bring with them a very matter-of-fact and inflexible culture.
