The staff were very nice. Samuel rhe porter was very detailed in his advise on the available hotel facility . Espee, the restaurant staff was very helpful, nice and very kind. She went out of her way to make our stay pleasant. The reception staff needs to get more information on transportation around Dubai. We asked about train or bus services to expo dubai, but the only option they could give was by taxi. Whereas the al riga train station provides train service to the expo dubai. The taxi cost us a lot. Also there are free bus shuttles called expo riders from many points. The management could something about the noise from the disco hall. Thanks for the early check-in given.

Breakfasts were definitely worth it, but the lobby area etc smelled of cigarettes, and in general the area appeared slightly worn. The pool area upstairs was fairly average. Shower and room facilities were tidy and mostly clean, however the towels had stains on them from previous users. It was handy to shops and to the bus and train stations.

We liked there Breakfast staffs and food. They were helpful. The room we stayed, was not a good room. Bathroom mirror was broken at the middle. Whole trip we covered the mirror because in any culture of the world people follows broken mirror brings bad luck. We asked for room change. The front desk staff was not helpful. We were waited long time to switch the room. Finally we gave up and stayed 3 days in same room.

Worst misguiding hotel with no amenities in Dubai
I stayed for 2 nights with wife and kid because it was shown as family hotel with swimming pool and gym etc but all were in bad condition and gym was hidden bar. Pool was worst.there was no rooftop restaurant. Completely misguided hotel. Not at all good for family. Will never ever stay at this hotel.
