The dtaff was quick to respond to queries and very helpful. The only complaint I had was the ice machine on the 4th floor was out of service, but Peter at the front desk was very accommodating in getting me ice.

Just a quick overnight stay

Pros: Perfectly adequate for a quick layover. No complaints at all. The breakfast buffet is included, and had a very good variety. (Especially after 3 weeks in Nepal)
Cons: The only surprise was that the advertised free shuttle from the airport only operates from terminals 1 and 3, so if you happen to find yourself in terminal 2, late at night, as we did, you'll need a taxi - make sure and take one of the official airport ones.
Location: Very convenient to the airport - we didn't have time to explore beyond that.

Comfortable, clean, quiet and convenient.

The hotel is not plush, but is clean, comfortable and well maintained. The staff was friendly and courteous, and the hotel is just minutes from the airport with convenient shuttle and a very short walk to the metro for inexpensive access to all the shopping and sights. There are much better options for a stay if you are spending several days in Dubai and want a luxury hotel, but if you are just spending a day or two layover it is perfect. I will definitely stay there on my next trip through.

Perfect airport hotel

Steps away from Emirates headquarters and Terminal 3 this hotel has all you need if you're getting up early the next day to catch an international flight. The free shuttle was a nice touch!
