Great but dint do the roof top bar its a prostution bar
Kenneth, gb4 night trip
Grand Excelsior Hotel Al Barsha
Was not impressed when I went to check in. Rather then paying attention to me the girls and the manager were giggling away. No welcome drink was offered. Nothing was explained about the hotel. Then at 12.40 am there was Di much noise outside my door and I complained but nothing happened. This carried onctill 2.30 am. So hardly slept. Not impressed by the attitude of the check in staff at all.
