Bad hotel

Posted May 27, 2014
The only thing nice about this hotel is the closeness to central dubai. The staff are horrible and the facilities doesn't even exist. Wifi is chargeable and the pool closes early!

Nice and clean hotel but lack of restaurant

Posted Apr 17, 2014
Nice and clean hotel but lack of restaurant is a problem mainly not having a breakfast will be an issue. This is not a luxury hotel or resort but rooms are very clean and spacious. Stayed in 1BR unit. Bit pricey. Location is central.

Nice exterior not equating to what is inside

Posted Feb 18, 2014
Pros: Housekeeping staff were very obliging and manager finally trying to understand our situation.
Cons: Everything MUST change as it has potential. Intense training of personnel especially reception ensuring "service with a smile" not seated bowed heads.
Location: Quiet and clean. Over priced supermarket. ATM. Not central so nothing around. Taxi required or walk to Manhatten Hotel where staff & food fantastic.
Most distressing from our arrival @ 12. 30 p.m. to be shoved to Dolphin Hotel that was of inferior status in occupational health &....decor of the 1960's. Had to demand to return to Arabian D but continuously refused without explanation. Insisting our demands for a better room were told that room will be available next day. With 3 days in Dubai we wasted a full day returning and demanding to meet the manager who offered no explanation. The next day after we were able to finally get in touch with Expedia we met manager to state that it was total fault of Arabian Dreams and was the offered compensation of one breakfast day & free wi fi for a day. Definitely the marble corridors are no match to services within, bad decor, faulty washing machine, dilapidated blinds, no hand towels.....very poorly trained personnel lacking hospitality etiquette. Mahendra Hotel chain MUST take full blame and wasted full day without any refunds. Emotional drain and worst experience in my years of travelling. Arabian Dreams definitely NOT of International standard practising basic ethical hospitality regulations. It was an Arabian Nightmare in a supposedly rich Dubai City!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great Hotel with quiet surroundings

Posted Feb 3, 2014
The hotel rooms were spacious. But the nearest bus stop is about 800 metres away and metro station is 2 kms away.

Pros: Location
Cons: Deal with staff
Location: Great
Service was absolutely rubbish. We were two people staying in a room needed extra key was not provided even after various request. We had booked in 4 nights then again 2 night after two days break when we returned the receptionist said your room is not booked luckily i had paper work with me she only gave us room after receiving papers from us. She said expedia did not fax us the detail. There was a horrible stink in toilets and rooms.
