To the turn of the year 2012/13 we decided to Dubai to the Marina View to travel. Centrally located town hotel with good transport links to metro, what for circa 3 Euro the whole day can use.

All rooms are very big and as studio laid out, with a small kitchenette, micro, fridge enough dishes and even a washing machine. A kettle and coffee was also available.

    The room was more than adequate with washing machine, microwave, hob etc and all one could need. The beds were extremely comfortable.

  • Gastronomy

    The restaurant offers a few different types of cuisine. We had an Italian meal and were very pleased. It would not be a 5 star restaurant but we would recommend it for a snack.

  • Location

    The location was close to all the action available at the marina. A short taxi ride to the beach, about 10 Euros. A very short walk to the metro station and a couple of stops from the Emirate and Dubai malls.

The hotel is simply a dream! We were in summer 2013 and have Lidl Reisen booked. The staff was really friendly and courteous. The metro is a 5 minute walk away! The hotel features sauna turkish barber gym which everything was to be really recommended. We are at the beginning skeptical but in hindsight we would always book that hotel again. Our room was cleaned every day. We had the possibility in the room to cook, washing and our laundry. Crockery is also available! I could really only swarms and degrees go again ☺ so not for a long time ... to wait just book and i can really say, that it not disappointed will! The comments which i with the breakfast read i can't confirm. It was always filled up and also after 11 hours there was a quick bite to eat. There were usually the same but varied at some days! Otherwise could one to supermarkets in the immediate vicinity and buy and making facilities in the room. Overall a great holiday! Always again with great pleasure read hotel review

  • June 2013
No tour guide on site, it was pointed out to nothing what you can see or where the pool is, or a bus to the beach drives, where the restaurant is nothing. Very rude you had to at least 5-10 minutes at the desk waiting until a notice. Maybe if guide would or better said we were not told when the guide is. Finally, the best the us in the early mitgeilt the room, until midnight. Around 10:05 a. m. evening rufte the guide to the room have to pay, we could until 10:00 a. m. evening left ... the room, we would have to pay, but since it was already 5 minutes after 10:00 a. m. is cost us 100,00 Euro. And the impudent answer from the guide if you don't pay the hotel gets the police then it becomes correctly expensive. Never again Marina View read hotel review
