    Excellent value for money

    Samaya Hotel Deira
    Some good some bad points
    The hotel room was smaller compare to other I stayed in dubai at same price the toilet is very tiny difficult to use every thing, the 500 dhs deposit taken by reception means you are a runner or means you may be a thief but they forget that they have all our details no one can run away without paying, none of other hotels in dubai take deposit. The check in process take ages they will tell you the room need to be clean so wait after 10 minutes when ask them again same answer the room is cleaning they just want to push you to wait some more time. If need some help from room like my tv remote is not working they will say Ok we will send some one but they will not send until you call them 3 or 4 times. The positive points are that my room was on high floor and have a good view of Greek , cleaning was quick and on time.

    Great location - needs some TLC.
    I was eventually upgraded to a third room which was a penthouse suite. The rooms were very large and so was the bathroom. The shower was very small though and with two doors, they opened whilst you were in the shower if you turned around! Also, the doors met over the edge of the shower tray, so water went on the floor. Weird. The staff were always trying to be really helpful and the room service was great - the food was delicious. The worst part was the wifi. Very intermittent and kept dropping out. No signal by the pool and struggled in the room as well. The whole hotel needs a good clean and some TLC. It looks very worn and tired, especially as I think it's only ten years old.

    Superb hotel with great location and views!
    I only experienced problems with the internet connection. It could only be improved if I switched to a paid internet service.
