Positive Reviews

Great location near attractions

Overall, guests have rated the location of the hotel highly. There are few attractions that are more than 30 minutes away with many much closer. The shuttle service helps guests get around easily and, although close to attractions, the hotel is still convenient for the airport.

Wide selection of amenities

Guests have been impressed by the amenities provided at this hotel. The amenities are found to be of an excellent overall standard and the property is found to be suitable for both business and leisure trips.

Good service from staff

The staff at this Dubai hotel has generally made a good impression on guests. There are exceptions but this is perhaps to be expected with a hotel with so many reviews. Overall, guests have felt welcome and have found the staff friendly and helpful.

Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi can be slow

Although this hotel seems to have changed its approach to Wi-Fi provision and no longer charges for this amenity, guests have found the Internet connection can be a little on the slow side, particularly in the lobby area.

Some rooms are nicer than others

The rooms and suites at this hotel are set across two towers, only one of which has benefited from any recent upgrades. Thus, guests have felt there is a difference between the standards you might expect and what you might actually receive. It seems worthwhile to ask to stay in the renovated tower.

Noise can be a problem

Depending on the room or suite you are allocated, internal noise (music) can be a problem.
