Pros: Comfortable room.
Cons: The light switches are frustrating and difficult to operate. The tv controls are annoyingly slow.
Location: Location is great for downtown Dubai. Perfect for Mall and metro.
Stayed for 4 days. Easy to get to from the airport, and staff are pleasant.

Top Lage in Downtown, direkt bei der Metro sowie 10min. von Dubai Mall und Burj Khalifa. Schöner Pool und top Frühstücksbuffet. Aussicht auf den Burj Khalifa ist jedoch mittlerweile durch neue Gebäude mehrheitlich verdeckt.
