    Superb

    The staffs were not at a high standard.The massage was good for relaxation and they also provide other massage if you know what I mean. Overall the hotel was at a good standard for the price paid.

    The way the hotel is designed is quite good.

    They charged extra for a guest to come up in the room - not sleeping over just few hours visit .. no hotel in Dubai did that before .. The charge was for more than half of the room rate which made the choice based on the rate invalid and very unwise .. For the rate they charged, eventually, I could have got a much better, cleaner, hotel with breakfast. I wouldn't select this hotel again, nor would I recommend it for anyone ,, first and last time !

    This hotel is probably the worst hotel that I had ever stayed in Dubai. 1- I thought this hotel had shuttle to and from airport based on my search criteria. It did not and they wanted 50 Dh to pick me up from airport and drop me off for another 50, the actual cost to go to airport in 15 Dh and 35 from airport to the hotel 2- first room they gave me had broken chair and I made them change it. 3-Internet cost was 10 Dh /hour 4- they lost my passport and took them 30 min to find it 5- They still have tube TV in the rooms and no TV guide 6- when I got to airport I was happy I was out of that hotel. If I had choice I would never stayed in that hotel. Don't ever go there wast of money

    Hotel is good and clean staff is very very good, the buffet breakfast is very very good and lot more varieties available in the breakfast, I enjoy the breakfast and very good staff and the lady which is operating the buffet is very good and smiling face may be Thai or Philippians but very good, hotel is very good and excellent for family visitor, no massage or other facilities not available in the hotel or in the room, massage is very compulsory every only need in the journey.

    I think this 4 star hotel is very very good within the cost 250 Dhrm per nights I enjoy very much air condition is very very good staff is already good rooms are very luxury only the tv channels is very limited no Pakistani or English news channel not available and also those English Movies which are showing on thats channels of the hotel are restricted and or cutting lot more seen which is very bad for viewer if you want to leave in 4 start hotel but you did not seen beautiful movies lot more seen because of restriction.

    The room was clean and comfortable.

    Breakfast was very poor. breakfast staff were very lazy. Some of them were eating from guests breakfast. They were cleaning the windows during the breakfast. When I asked them to bring me slices of tomato and cucumber, they were hesitant, very late and brought few!!!!

    Fabulous

    The hotel location is near the famous streets at Daira and the underground car parking is wide and easily accessible. They also offer extra bed free for childern.

    The hotel staff is very bad. They are totally not professional when dealing with their customers. They even lock the doors by programming the key cards for one day only even if your stay is one week. They keep residence crowded at their reception desk just reprogramming their rooms’ key cars.
