Close to the airport

Posted Dec 2, 2016
Stayed at this hotel as I am a club Carlson member. About 15 minutes from the airport but a little dated. Only stayed a night so didn't check out all the facilities. I had some things go missing whilst i was out but later found by housekeeping. Was upset that somebody had been in my room whilst i was out and the hotel offered a free airport drop as an apology.

Enjoyed our stay in the hotel

Posted Nov 14, 2016
Pros: The room was nice, bed was large enough. Bathroom nice and shower good. Furniture good. Liked the fountain downstairs. Pool good.
Cons: Balcony quite small but serviceable. I thought it was at an acceptable level, did not find the gym in my time there.
Location: Boat trips good in this area, close to transit system (Union Station) which helps in getting around.

Excellent hotel in a convenient central location

Posted Nov 13, 2016
Pros: The hotel is well presented and attractive. The rooms are large and well appointed. Bath rooms are very good. Airconditioning work very well (critical for Dubai even out of summer). Wifi works very well. Very broad range of good restaurants. Central location close to subway and opposite the old town
Cons: Nothing. No things to raise It is a poor requirement of this review process that tries to force me to say something here when I am happy with the hotel
Location: Central and conveniently located. 15 minutes from the airport and across the creek from the old town. Close by train access.

PARADISE COMPARED TO EUROPEAN HOTELS

Posted Oct 25, 2016
Location: Handy to the airport and to the attractions of the Deira Creek area.
From the efficiency of luggage transfer seamlessly from Taxi to Room, to the welcome at the reception and on to the roominess and comfort of a room with all facilities including a view from our balcony over Deira Creek, what a great venue for breaking a long-haul flight with a stopover in exciting Dubai. Wake up to one of the great breakfast experiences with no request too difficult to handle (even Eggs Benedict done your way).

On the Creek

Posted Oct 14, 2016
Pros: Mostly Everything.
Cons: The breakfast staff in the restaurant did not speak good English and it was a challenge to order eggs and freshly grilled halloumi cheese.
Location: Convenient location from airport and near the Union Metro station. Great views of the Dubai Creek and access to wonderful shops and restaurants.
Met with cold towel and fruit juice. Easy internet access. 24 hour fitness and pool. Best fish restaurant in Dubai.

Amazing experience! Best in Deira!

Posted Sep 30, 2016
Pros: The staff, reception, standard room, balcony, view of Deira Creek, amazing Chinese restaurant, nightclub, comfortable
Cons: bigger bathrooms
Location: Ideally located with a breathtaking view of Deira Creek. It is 10 minutes away from the airport
I stayed in this wonderful hotel from 23rd to 24th September and it was one of the best experiences I had in Dubai. Firstly, the receptionist (I can't remember her name) was very hospitable and friendly - she took her time to talk me through the Carlson membership, restaurants and other offers which were available at the time. I stayed in the Standard Room which was located on the 2nd floor. It was spacious and extremely comfortable and cozy. Infact if I didn't have work the next day to fly out of Dubai, I was tempted to extend my trip. The balcony was amazing with a breathtaking and relaxing view of Deira Creek. The bathroom was a bit cramped up but it was still very nice nonetheless. Nothing but 5 stars for this wonderful hotel and definitely my preferred hotel to stay in the next time I visit Dubai. Excellent value for money!

Outstanding hotel

Posted Sep 29, 2016
This is a fantastically appointed hotel with charming and helpful staff located in easy walking distance of the Souks. Dining was a gastronomic symphony at their new Emirati restaurant "Aseelah". We have dined in many countries this trip and Aseelah easily equaled Michelin starred restaurants. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to others.
