I really don't know how I can rate this hotel... Rooms are spacious, and have everything you should expect from a 5 star hotel actually. Free parking if you have a car, location is ok but not superb, gym is very disappointing and is there only for the rating . However, the management has a real problem... First, coming back...

Great value for the money. Great location. Breakfast was included and was not bad. It was clean. I would stay again. Free...

After searching on Google I came across this hotel. I wanted a hotel that included breakfast and which wasn't going to cost the earth (leaving more cash for shopping and eating out). This hotel really surprised me. Firstly the room we had was huge. We chose a junior suite which came with half board for an excellent price. Two televisions,...

Stayed at Donatello in October 2016, and I'm sure there are better places for the price. The good... 1. Great location,close to the Mall of Emirates, a ten minute walk. 2. The rooms are huge.

Amazing hotel, very clean and big rooms that are very affordable for people even on budget. I think this hotel is a bit underrated because I would rather stay in their rooms than of a 5 star hotels small tiny ones. It is very close to the mall of emirates too!

Red Hot Chili Bar- Prices and food excellent for the area, worth the taxi fare and some from JLT/Marina/JBR just for the beer. Food good, band above par, Thursday was Spanish mixed with other hits. Good TV coverage for sports other times.
