Nice hotel, close to airport. Bar charges extortionate, but this is Dubai today. Breakfast acceptable.

Short stopover

We took a few days to see Dubai while on our way to Australia and chose the hotel because of its proximity to the airport. As we arrived fairly late at night and took off again at 2am a hotel near the airport was ideal, particularly in light of the hotels free airport shuttle service. Room size was generous and was very comfortable with a two seater sofa in addition to a hardback chair. I mention this as a plus as we have stayed in many hotels who think that a single hardback chair is sufficient seating for two people in a double room. We don't think so and were very pleased with the seating provision at this hotel. All in all we enjoyed our stay and would be happy to come here again.

Convenient for a stopover at DXB

Pros: Proximity to airport
Clean, comfortable hotel with shuttle from airport. Pleasant staff and good breakfast. We used this hotel during a 10 hour stopover in Dubai and it served its purpose well as somewhere to rest and shower before our onward leg.
