Quite convenient and accessible to Metro Station, Restaurant and Night Life (Clubbing). Although I and my friend arrived at the hotel earlier than checking hour they still accommodate us and give us a place to stay with my friends.

Room Tip: Window Side viewing other part of the city

The hotel is located in Al Rigga adjacent to the Shaik Zayed main road and is 10-15 minutes away from notable landmarks like the Burj Khalifa. The hotel is a budget one, and having experience staying at many hotels I am overall disappointed. The hotel room, a single room with a double bed was not entirely clean, the room had a musky smell which could easily be overcome with an investment in candles - a traveler should feel welcome into their temporary place of stay. Basic amenities were not even attempted to be provided - I observed half used toilet rolls, an extremely dirty bathroom with rust on the rails and cracks in the toilet seat and even an empty tissue box.

I regret to state that visiting the local KFC saw more water pressure than the dismal excuse of the shower in this room. Where was quality control and procedure? Most importantly, a hotel advertising fast and 'uninterrupted' high speed internet much to my astonishment had NO INTERNET OR WIFI what so ever. In my 4 day stay, I asked everyday about whether it was fixed, undergoing maintenance or even existent - with management trying to come up with new excuses every time, smiling and telling me it's not in the hotel is unacceptable.

Furthermore, exercising a little Candour and basic manners towards guests should be hotel management 101, this is not a residential apartment (although it might as well have been), I was treated with more respect and had access to greater amenities in the village in Pakistan. Could management explain to me how it's possible that water pressure from the Muslim shower is more flowing than the damn shower head? It would've been easier to bathe with a bucket under the sink. Fellow travelers I strongly advise not to stay here and should management wish to contact me I have no problem to answer your queries.

Needs a good clean and upgrade. My first impression of this hotel was that everything seemed nice, but staying 3 days sure opened my eyes to all the dirt and the non performance of staff on this level. Sure this hotel was not expensive, and must have been a good place to be in it's hayday. We found that food was just slap dash, no effort to prepare a good tasty dish. The swimming pool should not be advertised at all because it is only open for 2 hours in a day? Really? As far as housekeeping is concerned, I think the staff is actually playing in your room instead of cleaning . We had to ask every day for Coffee, water and fresh towels. The hotel is situated in a central spot close to the airport in the old quarter of Deira. Quick access to the airport by taxi or Bus. This hotel does not have a shuttle to the airport and back.

Room Tip: Best views of the street from every room in this hotel. Very sunny,.
