I was thrilled to find this hotel's website and was looking forward to staying there. The website gives you the impression that you are booking a modern, chic, cool hotel. This is not the case. I was told I had even been upgraded and thought my room was terrible. It's the type of place you don't want to walk bare...

Had a hilarious stay at this boutique hotel. Stayed in the basement with no windows. Had a soundtrack of cats mating in the hallway at night. The main floor, with a the restaurant and the pool courtyard and the cute rooms looking out over the pool, was decorated in a funky arabian vibe. The basement, not so much. Had a...

The hotel was ok for a quick business trip, however I probably wouldn't stay longer than a few days. My room was clean etc however it was quite noisy as it was located immediately behind the reception area - the padded walls had little affect! I would also not recommend eating at the in-house restaurant - the food (and drinks)...

I have stayed in many hotels in Europe and I have found this hotel to be unique, interesting and in many ways superior to what we find as the same standard in Europe. Staff was very accommodating. They've dealt with all my requests promptly and were always willing to help! Our room was overlooking the pool, in the inner courtyard,...

The Arabias is a little different but it also classes itself as a "boutique" hotel in its defence. I cannot comment on the basement rooms as my room is next to the pool. Whilst it is not big and lacks a wardrobe, it is by no means poor. The room was spotless upon arrival with all of the basics required...

We stayed recently at Villa das Arabias. Expect no sun light in the room. Some things might not work as expected and they may fix it or not. When you need something basic (toilet paper, towers...) they will help you under request, but it will take time. Swimming pool is not very appealing and regular rooms are like dungeons. However,...

My little cell was down in the dungeons ! What a dreadful room. Extremely claustrophobic and the aircon did not work. I asked to be moved the next day as I didn't sleep a wink all night - unless they were able to fix the air conditioning and provide a working fridge. After a busy day working I returned to...

I am usually not inclined to write bad reviews. I have stayed here a few times and in various rooms. i like that the hotel has personality and I can rough it with the best of them, but considering the price of the rooms, what you get and the lousy service I wouldnt stay here ever again.

My company SMEC book me into the Arabias for three nights in February. Following are my feedback comments on the stay: I objected to the small dark windowless room that I was initially shown and following discussions with our office I was given an executive room (Junior Suite). Comments on the room and service: Bathroom shaving mirror on the floor....
