Great value May 30, 2011
Firstly Dubai is not a backpacker place, its aimed at upmarket tourists and Business people, so to find a cheap decent hotel in the midst of all the money is great! At around 40 pounds a night for Dubai this is very cheap! The room was nice, free breakfast was decent, free pick up to and from the airport saved money on a cab, and the staff were very helpful and can give you advice for were to go, how to get there, cheap places to eat food, how much things should cost etc. Also free computers, Internet use, and a place you can book city tours, dessert safari etc. For me the location was perfect, right in the heart of the old town, you can feel the 'middle eastern' buzz of computer and mobile phone shops, Indian restaurants, people selling watches etc, just 5 mins walk to the creek, Dubai museum etc.
However, a little hard to meet people in the hotel, so if your by yourself you may be a little lonely. That said its not the Hotels fault...Backpackers do not come to Dubai! Dubai people and tourists are friendly so I'm sure like me you'll run into people on the street you can hang around with . Free airport shuttle. Free buffet breakfast. Clean, large room which was nice and quiet despite building works next door. Good price.
