Stay here!
Amazing hotel. We looked at so many hotels when looking to go to Dubai and finally decided to book this one and it was such an amazing place. From the moment you arrive the staff cannot do enough to help you. The rooms are spacious and very very clean, the pool area is very nice and the breakfast was delicious with lots of choice. The location is perfect to get everywhere, the Burj Khalifa and Dubai mall are an easy journey and to get to the Palm is not too far at all. I honestly cannot recommend this hotel enough.

Great hotel to stay
Friendly, comfortable, clean. Everything I expected from a 5 star hotel at a very affordable price and as per the reviews and photos. Location was great if you are happy to commute via taxis as the metro is located some distance away. Will be more then happy to stay here again after some disappointing experiences at other 5 star hotels in Dubai.

The best hotel ever!
The hotel is simply the best one we have ever stayed in. Amazing room design with view. Very friendly and supportive staff. Great looking hotel and outdoor area for breakfast, and for swimming pool. Highly recommended.

Lovely hotel near Dubai mall!
Very new, very clean hotel. Lovely design in the room but for a 5* I want a proper hair dryer, not the rubbish thing attached to the wall. Fantastic pool overlooking downtown dubai. Excellent WiFi connection. It still has a few teething problems and I’d definitely consider it a 4* not 5* but it’s excellent value for money and significantly better than others I’d stayed in for the same prices. It’s in an area that’s still being developed so you need to take a taxi to and from but unless you’re attached to a mall, you pretty much have to everywhere in Dubai. 10 mins from Dubai Mall and festival walk (loads of restaurants). Would definitely stay again!
