Hotel is big, it has 40 floors. Wi-fi in the room, you had to pay, which in the 'internet city' is a bit odd. In the café in the 40. floor there is free wi-fi (hint: we are in the café surfing and then the wi-fi in our room also free works). …  read hotel review

Unfortunately a bad experience even though we asked for a nonsmoking room 4 months in advance there was none available in the room the safe was missing my wife hurt herself when sitting on a chair whete a screw from an amateur repair came out and punctured her trousers and leg. The staff was not accepting any of those issues as a real claim we will definitely not go to this hotel again. Have i mentioned that the sofa in the living room was taped several times to keep the fabric in place or that the door to the balcony ... could not be opened first? I could go on like this but just like to forget this experience. read hotel review

Excellent Location and Service But !
  • Recommended hotel

  • Other stay
  • March 2014
This hotel is a very crowded hotel and in demand due to its strategic location which is exactly near the DIC (Dubai Internet City) Metro station and around 10 minutes drive to JBR (Jumeriah Beach Residence). The room is for two people and are good in space , not large but not small either, the living room can accommodate your guests if you decided to have two or three for lunch/dinner but not more than that. The service is excellent in term of cleaning , delivering your luggage or food. read hotel review
  • Service
    6.0

    The staff are really friendly , all that I have met speaks English really well, and they have staff that can speak other languages like Arabic , Tagalong, etc. They have a laundry service which is good.

  • Sport & Leisure
    4.0

    The gym is open 24/7 and next to it is a swimming pool which has a great view of Burj Al Arab, the pool is well maintained and kept clean at all times. The internet at the hotel is a slow (good of surfing the internet only) unless you ask for the IT to increase the speed , otherwise you will have to bear with it.

  • Room
    4.0

    The room size is adequate , but the furniture seems to be old or overly used, and the walls looks repainted over and over again, I can see spots of the newly painted areas. The air-conditioning is generally alright, if you have a problem with it just give them a call and they will come and fix it immediately. You also get to have a coffee machine, fridge, telephone, safe, balcony, TV like most of the 4 stars hotel.

    As I stated before, the location is really really good especially if you don't own a vehicle in Dubai , it's at a walking distance to DIC metro station and 10 minutes away from JBR and Mall of the Emirates and Marina Mall. It has a grocery store at the ground level , and an ATM machine near the reception + a stand where you can rent a car.

  • Gastronomy
    6.0

    They have the noodle house restaurant at the ground level as well as others like Qutoof which can deliver the food to your room, plus there is a coffee shop where they brew Starbucks coffee as well.
