Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel rooms are okay considering its a budget hotel , however there are plenty of pluming issues , Toilets wont flush properly, Staff is not cooperative and attentive no matter what u tell them they will take ages to attend you.. Not a place i would stay in again ..

Decent hotel and have what we need with a group of students. Closed to the mall and metro which is very useful. Breakfast hasn't got great selection but it's still a decent breakfast. I'll go for this again

I have been a regular visitor to the Huddle. What kept me returning is the professionalism and friendliness of their staff. Staff like Kelky, Terissa, Sudhakar, and many others, are professional, kind, and are what keep us regular customers returning. A place well managed.

Great location. Handy to Emirates mall, metro station and supermarket. Hotel has bar, coffee and food to keep you happy. Took a cab to the Dubai outlet mall, one way was AED $65- Would certainly stay here again.

We arrived at Citymax late at night, 2 adults and two young children. Usually it's not an issue for us as they are still at an age where we can share beds. But these beds were particularly small, and while the staff at the front desk was accommodating, those beds were really small. Breakfast was quite good, with different options...

We stayed at the hotel for four nights and were very pleased with the room, it's small but it's all you actually need on a vacation for few days. The location of the hotel is next to the Mall of the Emirates and the metro station is just a 5-10 minute walk through this mall, so it's a great location...
