Located in the Bur Dubai district of Dubai, the hotel is centrally located for visiting the local attractions and for the number of bars in the vicinity. The airport is approximately 10 km away from the hotel, with the nearest public beach in Jumeirah being less than 15 km away.
All the rooms are medium in size and well appointed, with each room having a small sitting area with a walk in closet. Although the rooms are suitable for corporate guests, the rooms are decorated to a high standard, with a more personal touch than can be found in many other chain hotels.
The hotel is famous for its food and beverage outlets, including Waxy O'Connors, one of the most popular bars in the city with Anglophiles. There are also Japanese, Russian and Irish restaurants in the hotel.
This mid rise building is nearly 30 years old and has undergone a recent facelift.
On entering the lobby, one feels like one has entered a small, traditional hotel in the middle of England, with the only giveaway being the bright sunlight outside. There are numerous couches in the lobby, where guests may be served refreshments, and the area is enliveded by pictures of England in a bygone era.
This is a unique hotel in Dubai, due to the design of the interior and the excellent food and beverage facilities on offer for such a small hotel. The hotel has been a popular choice for guests to Dubai for many years and presents itself as one of the best 4 star hotels in the city. It is suitable for both families and tourists looking to explore the city. Beach transfers are available from the hotel upon request, subject to availability.AH 09/09
