This is the second time I have stayed in this hotel this year and I like it.
Location is a little out of the way from main attractions but I enjoy travelling by metro and the station is close by so it works out well to get around. The metro is a great system.
I love the beds here and just had a fantastic sleep. My fiancée didn't get a good sleep. Whilst I think the beds are good they are hard and she found this really difficult.

We stayed two nights at the hotel to break our journey from Europe to Brisbane. The hotel was a little bit dated, though clean and the staff were very helpful. Our flight landed very early in the morning and we were happy to pay an additional small charge for an early check in. Although the room was classified as non-smoking, there was still a slight smell of cigarettes when you first went into the room. We did have a problem with the air-conditioning in that it was too cold and we were unable to change the setting. The maintenance staff tried to fix it but were unable to, so reception out us in another room, which was much appreciated.
The hotel is only a 5-10 minute walk from the Mall of the Emirates and the metro station.
