A haven in the busy city”

The friendly staff, luggage storage, good breakfast, bus to beach
swimming pool and gym closed

I have stayed three times at San Marco, which indicates my satisfaction with the rooms, the service, and the friendly staff. Usually the stay is short so I appreciate the good brakfast and the bus to the city or the beach. While in the centre of things, it is pretty quiet, and the ability to store luggage is another plus.

Nice and clean rooms, safety box in room. Swimming pool on top of the house, small, but big enough to refresh when its hot.

I have already been in this hotel 5 times. Very friendly staff and only 10-15 mins. to walk to naif road, gold souk, spice souk and abra-station. Also internet place around the corner of the hotel. They also have a free hotel bus every day to the beach and shopping center. Will come back again when i come to Dubai.

1) Certainly not a 2 Star! It needs to be rated as a 3 star hotel which is much better than most of the 3 or for that matter 4 Star hotels in Europe! 2) All staff member are very kind, helpful and informative. 3) Very much a family hotel 4) Location of the hotel and food served in the restaurant is not all that great but still the hotel deserves a 3 Star rating. 5) Given an opportunity would like to stay in this premises again 6) Value for money

Good value. The hotel staff is laid back. Rooms are clean and well maintained.
Few public taxis available in this area.

The hotel is a good value. The room is clean though a bit on the smaller side. The staff is efficient as it's a smaller hotel and there isn't major customer traffic. There are many local shops in this local area. You could easily pick up snacks at the local grocery stores. An internet cafe is a 1-minute walk from the hotel.

Quite close to Dubai airport Close to hundreds of small shops, gold souk, etc
Sound level of AC in the room Description of the Hotel location

Location says: Opposite Hyatt Regency.....Opposite in this case means 6-700 meters away, down 100m on a pocket road..!! Have to call the hotel twice to locate it!! This is very annoying when you come late from airport, trying to find the hotel, get some sleep and up early again.. Second thing was the sound/noise from the AC fan in the room, it was on low but it was impossible to have it on nighttime...So i open the window to get some air. Just to find out that the airplanes took off / landed right above this area.. Room was small but sufficient for a night stay over, breakfast i didn’t try since i have to leave earlier than it started, staff was friendly, hotel was clean even though a bit rough.

STAY AWAY! Not worth it!”

Worst Hotel I have ever been in Dubai! Stay away if you are looking for a value for money hotel experince! Not worth it believe me! Starting from checking in, there were no parking for hotel's guests. We had to park the car at least 1km away which had to pay 50AED just to park overnight. The room was given at first didn't look the same as pictures which we complained to the reception and they tried to convince us that it was the same. After checking in we went out to have lunch and realized that we booked at the worst place in Dubai! No decent resturants, Dingy and dirty streets and even worse, Prostitues are everywhere! The hotel offered us lunch buffet for 30AED. It was really bad with only 6 dishes that are oily or badly flavored. The included breakfast was better at least. Room experince was good at first but outside noise was loud and we can hear the conversation from next room! I woke up in midnight because of an argue between couples next door! Even worse, next day morning there was no hot water whatsoever. We had to take cold showers! They didnt ask us how was our experince when checking out! What a joke! STAY AWAY!

Friendly staff, affordable.
Your TV has limited channels.

The general experience was quite good though are some areas that really need improvement.These include the limited channel available, bathrooms need a some touch-up (the water logs on the floor and the plastic is an irritant).Your outdoor arrangement are quite good (the sand cruise and boat dinner was quite adventurous) but you need to do a lot more marketing.We only realized that there were such facilities by "mere luck".
