Very good value for money. I really enjoyed my stay there. The fact that it is situated in another part of Dubai (Sharjah) was a big, plus for me. I experienced a different side to Dubai.
It's a good hotel, just a bit far from Dubai, so in the morning and evening there is rush hour and it takes 1-2 hours to reach it.
THE HOTEL IS NOT IN DUBAI! Make sure you realize this before booking. The hotel IS in SHARJAH, which is the neighboring Emirate(think state). However it isnt far from Dubai. Top Tip: If you take a Dubai taxi across the border to Sharjah, there is a mandatory 20AED fee in addition to your taxi fare. To avoid this, do like the locals and take a taxi to "behind the Sahara Center." Then get out and walk across the border (follow the people) to the Sahara Mall and get a Sharjah taxi.
