In addition, it is also a stone's throw away from the city's most popular shopping malls, making the hotel an ideal stopover for the business traveller or tourist. The distance to the nearest beach is 5 km, a 5-minute drive.
All of the rooms are medium in size and centrally air conditioned. They are fully equipped with a hair dryer, mini-bar, safe deposit locker, internationaldirect-dial telephone facilities and satellite television. All are in good condition.
Shamiana is an all-day dining restaurant serving continental, Arabic, Indian and Chinese cuisine. Al Sadeeq is a coffee lounge serving pastries and sandwiches.
This modern building is similar to many in this central area of Dubai.
The lobby is quite grand, with a chandelier and marble decoration, although perhaps a little dated.
Beach transfers are available from the hotel upon request, subject to availability. This is a pleasant, centrally located hotel which is of a good standard and offers good value. It is located just a few buildings down from its sister hotel, the Landmark. (SD 07.08)
