Positive Reviews

Low room rates

While guests did not usually say they received good value for money, they did report that the room rates here were quite low - certainly much lower than most places in Dubai. As a result, the hotel may be considered a good bet for those who just need a place to crash.

Decent customer service

Guests were generally happy with the way they were treated by the staff here. They were sad to be quite friendly and willing to help where they could.

Negative Reviews

Inconvenient location

Guests were not completely happy with the location of his hotel, saying it was quite far from the nearest metro station, just a bit too far to walk. Those without a car felt a little stranded.

Very poor Wi-Fi

Like is the case in many hotels, guests did not think much of the Wi-Fi here. For a start, logging on was said to be unnecessarily complicated, and secondly, the system was simply too slow and unreliable to be of much use.

Noisy environment

Guests reported that the hotel was in a busy area, with lots of cars on the streets outside at all hours. The rooms were said to have poor sound insulation, so guests could easily hear the roar of he cars passing by outside.
