    Ideally located in Burjuman within walking distance to Meena Bazaar, Gold souk, and other shopping areas. Rooms were comfortable and ideal for a couple.

    Superb

    The beds are really comfortable and the room service is quite fast.

    Utilities close at 7 pm which is a bit too early, especially in summer. Though we had some complimentary meals, they are generally over priced for a three-star hotel.

  • 6.2
    Good

    rooms are decent. good, friendly staff

    t will be better to prepare a map for the taxi drivers. It was very frustrating because the two taxis I took had difficulty finding the hotel. Spoke with one of them and he says that most of the taxi drivers know the hotel by the name 'Highland' and not 'Howard Johnson'. How can people even sleep with all that noise from the night club below? very disturbing and I would never stay in this hotel again

    Good

    Good Ambience and supportive staff. Good location. GPS coordinates: N25.15.606, E055.17.141 (the one in website is referring t the old hotel)

    Difficult to locate with GPS, staff could not guide correctly. If not getting valet parking it is an area of concern. Their normal check out timing is 12:00 noon, upon request extended till 2:00 pm. Late check-out (till 4:pm) offered by Booked.net was no respected by hotel staff. (He said he don’t know about this.) Bit nosiy room at 3rd floor because of night club.

    Hotel is centrally located and is very clean.

    The fact that they were surprised that I got the rooms at such a great rate and they were not happy about it. They even mentioned that this rate has toi be changed to a higher rate!!!!!

    It is very reasonable priced

    Downtown, not for the international tourists. Bollywood club very noisy until 3am. Not pleasant for swf. Breakfast poor. Far from shopping center and as taxi's do not come cheap in Dubai - be prepared to pay your way. Unless you have a bus pass -you cannot make use of the public transport. My room was never cleaned during my stay

    Exceptional

    This hotel was just PERFECT,...rooms,comfort,cleanliness, was 5 star....Indian food was so tastey,the service top notch....i also visited the Rock City nightclub on mezz level,,,Security was tight,,plenty of bouncers on hand ,which was reassuring...all in,a great experience.

    WiFi cut off after paying 24 hours,,,should have been refunded.

  • 6.6
    Good

    The room and facilities in room were very good. good clean and spacious room.

    very small lobby area. Check in was horrible to say the least. No space/room for keeping guest luggage after check out.

    Fabulous

    Reasonable price (from Booked.net only, booking directly from the hotel is way over priced), breakfast included, bus stop at door step, metro station only few bus stops away, convenient stores and pharmacy on same block

    Internet for extra charge, breakfast could be improved, hallways were kinda smelly

  • 9.2
    Superb

    The only thing I liked was the size of the room!!!

    1) Breakfast sucked. 2) Parking sucked, listing says there is parking. If you consider having them keep moving your car 50x and having to park it for you, parking. To avoid this hassle, I just parked outside one time to wake up to a 150 dhs ticket. If ample and convenient parking was supplied, why the hell would I park on the street? 3) Breakfast included, but it sucked big time. Cafe was dirty, staff was dingy. 4) Location was very difficult to find and get to from the main road. Basically located in the "hood", "projects".

  • 6.2
    Good

    Breakfast is good.lift is good.quite rooms in spite of next to main road.Hotel lobby music was good

    Nobody came to pick us up at airport instead of many reminders.Front desk staff should be more friendly.Nobody came to pick up luggage instead of many reminders.So service was very poor.Very expensive hotel with standard of hotel.
