    The restaurant was of used breakfast and supper. It was an adequate food available. Morning coffee and tea; in the evening only water (free) from karaffen. No alcohol, no Cola... Nothing... Stop v. a. e. Dinner 3 evenings except for the soup identical speisenformen. We would thus with a further visit to Dubai-city only overnight accomodation with breakfast and then in the evening in one of the malls (only with the metro) food.

  • Location
    5.0

    The hotel is quite well by the proximity to the metro station (red line ) Dubai internet city. Day ticket for the metro (red and green lines) currently costs 16 Dirham (circa 3,20 Euro). As the metro drives celestially (except for the stations in the area of the Dubai creek (2 stations red line and several stations green line) can one everything overhead see. Therefore we have on hop-on-hop-of - price for 2 days 295 Dirham instead of 32 Dirham for metro pass. Dubai Mall/ Burj Khalifa, Emirates Mall are only a few stops away. In the proximity of the hotel there is a well stocked supermarket.

  • Service

    The staff at the check-in and in the restaurant is friendly to reserved friendly or grumpy. Not everyone had a good day when we were there. Check-in 08/15 without any explanations to the hotel; individual restaurantservicekräfte especially. Evening inattentive and indifferent. Our safe on 2. day didn't work, after having complained at the reception a hour wait... Forget... Then again... And it worked.

    Due to the proximity to the metro station (red line ) Dubai internet city was very flextibel. For 16 Dirham (circa 3,20 Euro) could, for example, a daily ticket for the metro used. Also taxis were relatively cheap. (for example, several trips from Dubai Mall/ Burj Khalifa until the auris first hotel 50 to 70 Dirham.

More appearance than substance, shortly before a construction site to sleep it goes straight still, it is clean, but the closet not being enough for 2 people for a week travel time. Breakfast was bland and not fresh. Waiters are nice. It has approximately category 1-2 stars of a spanish hotels. There is no bar, where you evening alcoholic drinks. Not recommendable. Bad english is the order of the day. We would never do again even if it is present was. It is worthwhile not. read hotel review

Not bad balance of price and value
  • Recommended hotel

  • Business trip
  • March 2013
Of two types available at the hotel for one-bedroom suite (traditional style and modern) prefer modern one as it is larger and looks brighter and cleaner. Executive one-bedroom suite has a very good size. Apartments at this hotel have fully equipped kitchen (even own washing machine, ironing desk and iron). Located in Tecom, it takes about 30 minutes by taxi to DIFC and about 15-20 minutes to GLT and Bubai Marina areas, 15 minutes to Mall of Emirates. Taxi is always near the hotel. Metro station is also very close. So it is suitable for business stay, for shopping in ... the city, but would not select it as tourist wishing to sunbathe on Jumeirah Beach. This is a not walking distance to beach. However, many tourists stay at this Auris hotel and use taxis or bus to go to the beach. Breakfast (continental) had limited choice. Price for it was rather high. Was better to eat in another hotel’s restaurant located near with better food quality and choice with the same price. Bathroom is good size and clean. Cleaning personnel is diligent and do their best, but sometimes they do not speak English and you have to go downstairs to explain your need on reception. Not big, but good gym. The pool area on the roof is unable to serve all guests, so you better come early morning to take the place. Starting from noon the pool area quickly turns into shade. Reception staff was sometimes not very participative to needs or miss to give you something (ex. your receipt). Construction works were carried out just in front of the hotel. Our windows were to the other side, so it did not disturb. Overall impression - not bad for not beach stay (holiday), but carefully select your room type and check its details. read hotel review

We got an executive suite changed ( upgrage ). Great view from the 22. floor! Also the pool on the roof is very worth seeing, although almost no chairs are available, and the couple quickly. Breakfast offers little choice, and what is our taste not at all met. Additionaly, because you partly up to 15 minutes to wait had, before a capacity in the restaurant was empty. According to hectic, it was also too, no pleasant atmosphere for breakfast. Staff is cooperative. Location nearby the metro perfect! Almost all sights are thus perfect and favorable to reach! Hotel is mainly ... russians occupied. read hotel review

Dubai top, hotel flop!

We have 7 days in this hotel tired. Here is a short summary of our experiences: when we arrived (9:30 a. m. in the morning) we had to until 14 o'clock on the check-in for the room wait. This is almost all hotels the case and that's why actually not a problem, however the staff at reception much already equivalent unfriendly to. We were told very simple, we should at 14 o'clock back and finished. We spend an hour in the outdoor area and in the lobby and inquired then, if the breakfast would have been, which we however ... not been allowed. We have no free inanpsruchnahme expected, but the possibility a coffee and rolls we were very pleased. So well, then we have us with the nearby vicinity familiarized and two 'good' supermarkets found, so that the morning only once saved was. After we at 14 o'clock then the room move (relatively spacious, very clean and easy furnished in an oriental style), we unpacked our suit-cases, but there was only a 'closet' with 2 drawers ☺ if the drawers in the nightstand and the counters under the tv (no german programs) with add, we could most things store. On the menu, which in the room shelves, stannt, that in the pool area and in the local restaurant sofrtdrinks and beer available if, so right there.! Well, beer was keins available, but at least a cold Cola. Here in the restaurant directly at the pool there is the only soft drinks, that means also in the evening in the 'restaurant' next to of the lobby is only flat water -no beer, no wine, no sodas, or similar! It does not mean, however, that one at all water to get a drink, because us, it is that happened twice, that not a soul for a customer oriented and to the table, so there is then also nothing. The dinner is very ' simply ', that means stone-hard rolls from the breakfast, frozen butter and a well arranged buffet with 5 different dishes: noodles, rice, meat, fish, potatoes. Should here be something for everyone, however the quality is not enough-tasteless and cold! The restaurant at of the lobby is relatively small, that means mornings for breakfast you can also gladly times 10-15 minutes on the doorstep wait for a table, but in the evening one has almost the whole room for yourself, because it is almost no one, but as mentioned, the staff is still not afterwards. Again short to the room: the free use of the safe is included and the rooms are actually always very clean, but it also happens, that no new towels left, the old but also were gone, so we stood there. The complete staff (no matter wether front desk, concierge, or whoever) beyleveld actually only with yes or no and is not at all helpful. One day we wanted with the free hotel bus to the beach drive (a day before register, otherwise nothing), so we spoke to the concierge on, said only, that the bus was full, thus worked his briefcase again and turned away. On the way back then brilliant: two days before the flight back, we asked at the front desk, when we were picked up. You could give us information and we should on the next day yet again, so a day before the flight back (our flight was in the morning at 9 o'clock). On the next day, directly after the breakfast inquired again and see as, no information for us. One said to us only, we will be with our tour operator call and ask! Luckily came straight a lady of our organizer into the lobby, what wuir ansprechern and this told us the necessary information with, so that a smooth and uncomplicated check-out was done. The environment of the hotel is quite easy, that means except for the two supermarkets there is actually nothing. The life is in the 25 kilometer away 'city-area' with the various souks, etc. 10-15 kilometer away is the Marina what also very busy us to be seen is. The burj khalifa and the next door Dubai Mall is about 10 kilometers away. We have most of the way with a taxi back as the simplest and not at all expensive (for 25 kilometer about 15 Euro). Directly behind the hotel (5 -minute walk), would be however also a metro station, which we also a few times use and works quite well. Basically one could say, that Dubai a gigantic, fascinating city in a very great country and you really must see, but the hotel 'auris first central' is an absolute flop and not worth 3 stars, therefore also not recommendable. read hotel review
