We stayed here for 4 nights recently on the way to the Far East & because we wanted to experience the metropolis of Dubai. We found a good deal on a hotel sight & booked what is termed a "souk view room." However I had noted that most people recommend a creek view room which weren't on offer on any... More

I first stayed on the creek a year ago at the Radisson Blu and that's when I first saw and went to enquire about this hotel. In Sept 2015 I chose to stay here for a few days but unfortunately got sick due to heat exhaustion so couldn't enjoy or rate the facility properly. I've just spent 4 nights here... More

Firstly, this hotel corridors requires modernising ( with the different carpets/wallpapers ) on the same floor which makes it look outdated BUT apart from this, the hotel was 100% immaculate,spotless and very clean. Rooms were comfortable and staff very professional and customer focused to all your needs. I was very impressed and would certainly book here again on my regular... More

The hotel is on a main bus route and a few minutes' walk from Union Metro station. There is a branch of Choitrams supermarket 3-4 minutes walk away from the hotel which is a good supply of snacks, drinks, milk, etc. The hotel itself had good customer service at the front desk, and polite, helpful staff in the breakfast lounge....

We stayed here for three nights in October. The hotel is in a perfect location right on the creek, is well maintained, has excellent staff, lounge, bar and a lovely relaxing restaurant for a very good breakfast buffet. We tried the Japanese restaurant one night but it was not to our taste. Other than that nothing could be faulted. We... More
