    Very good

    The fact that there is no alcohol and no discos was very impressive. The rooms are spacious but above all alcohol free environment

    One security guard at the lobby went ahead and prejudged me. He assumed based on my color that I was not a guest and insisted that I show him the room to the key......i found that to be insulting.

    Excellent service by staff, facilities met all our needs and location handy to tour pick ups. Due to these factors we have rebooked for our return journey back to Austalia at the end of June.

    Superb

    Exceptional service by hotel staff - upgraded at check in to a creek view room without asking and was provided first class service throughout my stay. Internet was fast, room was spotless. Upon my departure, the staff quickly noticed I had left an item in the room and "chased me down" to ensure I left with all my belongings. Would highly recommend this hotel.

    Very good

    Easy access to the train station and metro.

    i sometimes found it difficult to communicate with the staff in the restaurant as they do not all speak english very well.

    I was interested in a Dinner Dhow Cruise and shopping in Gold Souk & Spice Souk, crossing the Creek by abra and visiting Dubai Museum. Perfect location for all of that.

    Although I requested in my booking a room with a view to the Creek, all I could see was the parking behind the Hotel. The only available type of rooms proposed in the booking form are "Standard Souk Room" and "Deluxe Souk Room", but nobody tells you what that means. Now I know. Anyway, one can never book a room with a Creek View? I find it hard to believe, but there are no indications on how to do it.

    The welcome from the reservations staff who found early check in rooms for us after a long flight from Cape Town and where possible gave us upgraded Creek View rooms. The chinese restaurant offered authentic dishes at a reasonable price. All the staff made our stay stress free and comfortable.

    We stayed for two separate nights in different rooms. The first room was clean and comfortable, but the bathroom seemed a little "tired" and really needed an overhaul. The second room had a much better bathroom. A glass of wine with diiner would have been nice!

    The cleaning staff was friendly.

    The room was not cleaned well during my stay, especially, the bathtab and toilet. The inside of coffee making facility was full of mould!! The hot water didn't come out one night but they neither fixed nor changed my room due to all the rooms were fully booked.

    Tell you the truth there was nothing I like about this hotel. I was on the second floor and every morning the smell of the chicken was up in my room.

    Hotel it self was nothing interesting. The staff were not available and it was like a host hotel. No one coming and going.

    Breakfast

    The room had an unpleasant/stale smell - a little like the very strong fragrance that many Arabian men use. Shower over bath with a shower curtain. Didn't look particularly clean & the carpet had marks.

    Superb

    We liked its close proximity to the Deira shopping district and the Gold Souk. It is also not far far the airport. The view over the Dubai Creek from our balcony was fantastic.The staff were great and very helpful. It was nice to be greeted by a smiling face when your plane from Europe is delayed and you are checking in after midnight.

    Airconditioning was a bit on the cool side but was adjustable thankfully.

    The prices on the internet convinced me,but unfortunatelly they charged for extra taxes and the rooms are very small..very bad!!!
