Easy access to all parts of the city.

We were greeted upon arrival at 2am by a friendly smiling Alex, throughout our stay, Alex on the night desk, was friendly and helpful. For Dubai this was a reasonably priced hotel. There were 4 of us so required 2 rooms, the suite we were in was ideal, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, living area. Beds were comfortable after we removed the plastic type mattress cover which on the first night made for a really uncomfortable night. There are 14 floors to this hotel and we were on the 13th so had a nice expansive view. The 15th floor houses the small but adequate gym and the rooftop pool.
The included breakfast was Indian style with the addition of boiled eggs, omelettes, lettuce and pastries. Everything was great except the croissants which were dense and bready, we were not allowed to take even a glass of orange juice and a piece of toast to the room when one of our party could not come down to eat. This is mean and unaccomodating especially considering the amount we paid for our stay.
The front desk was as helpful as they could be, unfortunately, they do not seem to have any local information and cannot arrange side trips or make reservations, the hotels nearby do have concierges that can answer any questions that may arise.
