                      8.8

                      It is a fantastic place to stay since the location of the hotel is right beside the outdoor theme park and directly connected to First World Plaza in which the indoor theme park is located.

                      We booked the room in WCR (World Club Room) category and the breakfast served (in the restaurant on 28th floor) was fantastic and children enjoyed the food and atmosphere. But due to Ramadan me and my wife had to eat the early breakfast wich was served only in the cafeteria (on the 8th floor) which is the dinning place for normal category guests. Here food served was below the normal standard.

                    • Family with children
                      5.8

                      I book this hotel because of the location & the playing area around

                      the room 's furniture , the facilites , crowded of people , long time to check in and the room is cleaning

                    • Family with children
                      7.0

                      A good hotel with all the recreational facilities.

                      Some room service should be provided by the hotel. Details on the theme park should be briefed by the hotel for the first time visitors.

                    • Family with children
                      8.8

                      Location

                      The Cafe food and smell were not very good. So I had to forget about the amount paid for food (bf & Dinner) and paid in other cleaner/better restaurants.

                    • Family with children
                      4.6

                      near to the theam park, free 4 tickets to a nice show, 4 tickets to a dinear.

                      Not comfortable to family, very crowdy, noisy reception, one hour to check in, very small rooms, smoking smell everywhere, we were given rooms looking to another block shielding the mounting seen. Small old TV with no interesting channels. No extra blankets are available. The funny thing is the 3 in 1 soap you get in the bathroom!!

                      The location

                      The rooms are bad and very noisy , the services are poor and i dont recommend it at all.

                    • Single
                      7.4

                      I was lucky that no need to wait long time to check in but still need to wait to get luggage to be sent by bell boy. Overall it is good location and room for family.

                      I need to wait long time to get bell boy to carry our luggage, finally we have to send ourselves out.

                      Generation and wonderful hotel and location is very superstitious and I advise the housing Gd maximum of nights

                    • Group of friends
                      5.4

                      It was a descent hotel with adaquate facilities.

                      Breakfast wasn't apertizing, Service was kind of slow.

                    • Family with children
                      10.0

                      very fast chek in, Room was neat and clean.perfact arrangement

                    • Family with children
                      7.0

                      I will plan it for next visit for longer period, it was a right decision to choose this hotel

                      I have nothing to say, it's fulfill my needs

                    • Family with children
                      7.8

                      I like this hotel because the atmosphere and weather are very cold.

                    • Older travelers
                      4.6

                      I was very disappointed with this hotel. When we arrived at 4pm, first we have to queue for 10 minutes to get a queue number, then we have to wait for 2 hours to check-in. This is absolutely inefficient and a waste of holiday-makers time. And when we reached our room, the cleaner has not completed the cleaning and we have to wait a further 5 minutes outside of our room. I will never ever stay in this hotel again!!!!!

                    • Family with children
                      6.6

                      it is attacdhed to the Theme park

                      There is no personal touch, too much rush and very crowded.

                    • Family with children
                      6.2

                      the location .

                      this is not a 5 star hotel . it is 3 stars with a very small rooms .
