How to Get There
On arrival the room was not ready/available. When I finally got the room the carpet was really worn out and dirty, the couch was dirt stained. See attached pictures. The claim to 5 star status is a stretch. I would avoid this particular hotel.
Room size was small. Windows were dirty. Very basic amenities were available with option to call and ask for anything you may require (Not my preferred way). Bed was comfortable (footend was towards Qaba, a sign of religious disrespect atleast from my background).
Separate bathroom and toilet. All cramped up. Not a nice feeling to go to toilet. Bath was ok. But absence of a door meant water on floor outside of shower area. Did not like that.
Wifi was intermittently not available at random intervals. So, if you working via remote terminal or VPN be sure to back up every few minutes or else you may lose your work.
Breakfast was reasonable and checkout was fast. Thank God.
Will not stay here again or recommend this hotel. Very little value for money.
Revisited the hotel after many years. Got a great deal for the executive floor. Room was excellent staff welcoming. The executive room opens for breakfast and early evening snacks and drinks. It’s worth taking if the deal is good. Managed to get some work done while having a couple of beers
Used the spa and pool which were great. You can also negotiate on spa treatments if they are not busy
I used the hotel as it’s near Jebel Ali where my business was but it is a long way from many other attractions
Great trip back
Beautiful ambience. The hotel welcomed husband and me with petals, décor and cake for our anniversary. Provided large, comfy cots for the babies and also had access to strollers which made life easy. Awesome baby care - kids activities, child-friendly food (they loved the pancakes!), kids TV in English. The food is lovely, a good array of different dishes. We would like to see some Nigerian food too. It's really close to Ibn Batutta Mall so I could leave the children at the kids club and go shopping. We also didn't have to deal with transporting stuff from the mall because the trolley could be taken to the hotel. The concierge service was good too. We had free rides to the Dubai Mall and the hotel is very close to a train station so we could easily use the metro. The staff were very courteous and ready to help. They were also friendly with the children. Excellent stay for young families! I would recommend again and again!
