Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 December 2017

The hotel used to be good in the past, the only good thing about the hotel was one lady in the front desk staff (damarees) whom was very helpful. The breakfast does flow is a bit confusing with a small variety. The water temperature and pressure in bathrooms is not right.

Nice clean room with good showers and a very comfortable bed. We did not take advantage of any other amenities since this was an 8 hour stop over between flights for a shower and a nap. Would like to have tried the restaurant.

The Hotel is very close to the airport, about a twelve minute walk from Terminal 1, handy if you want to drop off a hire car the day before your flight. It is nicely appointed and has a very nice pool with spa and snack bar. Staff are all very helpful and efficient. The standard rooms are begining to look a little dated by modern standards, with quite dark decoration, and the bathroom is very small by Dubai standards and similar to European city hotels. Everything works and the bed was comfortable. Missed having a clock.

The buffet breakfast was quite extensive and suited to most cultures. The cakes from the cafe in the lobby are excellent.

Landed late in dubai due to weather conditions at Manchester so missed connecting flight. Airline payed for hotel and food until next available flight. Couldn't fault hotel. Staff were very pleasant.

The hotel was provided by Emirates airlines as a stopover between two flight. It's conveniently close to the airport and fully equipped with all the features one needs for a short stay. There is an ample choice of restaurants and sport facilities more than sufficient to make everyone satisfied.
