Decent 4 star hotel

Good location; 10 - 15 mins via taxi to Dubai Marina, JBR or a little further to Palm Jumeirah. Also, doesn't dig too deep into the taxi fares. Beneficial for those choosing to journey via Dubai Metro (outside is the Dubai Internet City Station), very cheap & effective means of travel. It is suitable for families, as it is an alcohol free hotel. The suite room is very spacious and comfortable, although some rooms are outdated in terms of decor. The breakfast is very good and the restaurants; arabic and sushi joints are up to par. You can benefit from a 24 hour dessert spot "Sweet Corners" at the ground floor which is ideal for sweet tooth foodies. Decent shisha served at the hotel at a reasonable price. However, the pool facilities are insufficient in terms of ratio; over 34 rooms of hotel guests for a meagre sum of sun beds & pool space. Overall, a pleasant stay and would it recommend it to others.

Couple

We have stayed here before. It is great value for money and in an excellent location so everything is easy to reach on the metro that stops right outside. Courtesy bus to public beach every day. Only tends to get sun around the pool until late morning. Staff are lovely and very friendly and helpful.

Great location and comfortable stay

We have just come back from a 9 day stay at Gloria hotel and would highly recommend it. From the superb location, comfortable and spacious rooms, friendly staff, daily free shuttles to beaches and the best feature of all was our spectacular views - we could see the Palm, Burj Al Arab and the Burj Khalifa from our suite. We will definitely return here.

Excellent hotel, highly recommended

Excellent hotel and service. Arrived at 8am well before normal check in but was found a room straight away to prevent delays. Staff friendly and polite and reception has a special desk to answer queries and help guests. Hotel right next to metro so transport around Dubai is easy and cheap. Can highly recommend this hotel.

great value

This hotel offers you fantastic value for money. The apartments are extremely spacious and well equipped, with lovely comfy beds and pillows. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It is also opposite the metro station so getting around couldn't be easier. My only negatives are the pool area didn't offer brilliant sunbathing due to it being in the shade most of the day, and pricey wifi for the room. There is free wifi on the 8th floor outside the restaurant. I would definitely return though.
