This is an excellent hotel, with considerable charm and a very warm and accommodating welcome. Is it worth its five stars? Well yes, but with a few tweaks it could be really special. Such as not making guests wait at the end of their stay while the room is checked - this took some of the shine off, I have to say. Also, think about the cost of the mini bar in the room? What about making it free, now that would be a good gesture and add to the overall feeling of being welcome and a guest. Costs can be recouped in other ways. Having said this, the pros far outweigh the cons and I would recommend this hotel to others and certainly go back again. I note previous comments about the need to travel by taxi to reach other destinations in Dubai, but I think this is the case no matter where you stay in Dubai, at least this way you get to see more of the charms of the place, and there appears to be plenty.
