Positive Reviews

Close to what you need

The world-famous Mall of the Emirates is an easy walk away and the area is full of things to eat, do, and see. The area is safe and the hotel is close to a metro station.

A good price

The hotel is very reasonably priced, especially considering the location. For that value, you also get free Wi-Fi and parking. Some onsite restaurants are open all night and the roof top pool and bar really adds a nice touch, especially when hosting drink specials and live bands.

A friendly staff

Even with so much going on, the staff does focus on being pleasant and efficient. They work hard on any billing concerns and seek to solve any problems you might encounter.

Negative Reviews

A busy atmosphere

The hotel is huge with many restaurants and lots of people packed into the space. The common areas are loud and full of smoke and noise and the rooms also show this constant wear and tear.

Slow when they want, Fast when they need

The check in process is slow and you might have to sit and wait on your room. This time can be quite lengthy if there is a crowd. However, when it's time to check out, they expect you to quickly leave. Overall, it has the feel of an assembly line of in and out.

No luxury bedding

This is closer to a budget hotel than a luxury experience. The beds and pillows aren't very comfortable and the rooms are quite small.
