Stayed at this place for 4 days. Got an upgrade on the very first day to a Suite room. :) The Staff was nice and Friendly. The food was nice. There was a swimming pool on the roof top but didn't get time to use it. Location is good and easily accessible. Highly Recommended :)

The staff is very warm, friendly and very alert towards their guest's requirements. The room service is good, ambience is above average, food is par excellence and the front office staff is amazing. Had a very pleasant stay.

I stayed here two nights this past Feb. Affordable and clean hotel but nothing special. Walking distance to the mall but not much else around it. Kind of boring location with little happening at night or during the day. Good for the price you pay and the place is clean and nice but location not the best.

Very nice and clean hotel. Could see Burj khalifa from hotel. Roof top Pool was very nice with the hot weather .A bit out of it so had to either taxi or train to most places . Lots to do in Dubai so we're kept busy . A must has got to be the dessert safari well worth the money
