Excellent Hotel, would highly recommend.

We visited Dubai for one week to attend a wedding. This hotel gave us everything we needed. Plenty of catering provisions. Excellent in-room dining too. Nice functional pool with plenty of sun loungers. It was very clean, had tasteful decor, excellent house-keeping standards and staff were very attentive and efficient. The outside pool bar was nice for drinks in the evenings. The only thing to let it down was that we were put on a smoking floor and as non-smokers we were affected by the smell of smoke in our room.

Super Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis

Diese Hotel entspricht einem ***** Hotel. Service ist super, die Zimmer grosszügig und sehr sauber, wie man es sich in Dubai gewohnt ist. Die Lage ist sehr zentral - für die Downtown benützt man das Taxi (30 AED). Dubai Marina und Palm Jumeirah sind sehr gut und schnell zu erreichen. In unmittelbarer Nähe befindet sich ebenfalls eine Metro-Station. Das Hotel ist auf jeden Fall weiterzuempfehlen. Gerne jederzeit wieder.

Urlaub mit Familie

Sehr schönes Hotel ganz in der Nähe von Metro. Sehr gutes Preisleistungsverhältnis und sehr freundliches Personal. In der Nähe ist auch ein 24-Stunden-Shop wenn man noch in der Nacht Hunger oder Durst hat ist das sehr angenehm.
