    very clean, kind staff

    It was not a quite place during the night especially because of the night clubs and related activities

  • Single

    excellent big rooms, fridge and kettle. Located well for bus metro and bus to airport.

    would have liked to swim after 5. Be advised of tavel service and staff not advising when did not know- ended up wrong way to airport on bus!! overall good and much better equiped and located than Ibis I have just stayed at. Thank you.

  • Couple
    7.8

    Despite calling the hotel two days before and the same day we were not given room on higher floor. We had mentioned the same on the booking as well. The noise was too high on second floor till 3 am. The male receptionist needs to be given some training on how to speak with the guest. This was our second time and we will still choose to stay with the same hotel because of the cleanliness. The bell boy was helpful.

    The male receptionist was too rude. He does not know how to speak. When I asked him for the room on the higher floor and told him that I called reservation department for the same requests he said that it does not matter. He does not have rooms on higher floor and he can not help.

    Location and of course the price!

    Rooms are not sound proof. We were annoyed by the noise of young couple in the next room!!!!!!!!!

  • Family with children
    4.2

    The staff was polite and answered questions.

    There was an argument outside my room and even after calling downstairs nothing was done to correct the situation. Also the music from the nightclub was loud. We were on the 5th floor and could still hear it. Location not good.

  • Single
    3.8

    The staff is extremely rude, did not allow me to have a lady friend in the room until I signed for an additional amount because the booking only stated single occupancy even though I explained that I would modify my book which I did on Booked.net at a fraction of the price they were charging. Definitely will not stay there ever again!!!

  • Single
    7.4

    The hotel room is good

    Housekeeping forgot to keep towels once I check in and in the morning they were asking me for the towels during my check out

  • Single
    7.4

    one of receptionist (MS firozeh was great) the location is good . value for the money.

    queen,s room are small.

  • Couple
    4.6

    Good value of money

    The mini par was missing some items, which at check out I have to pay for it.

  • Group of friends
    9.0

    It is very clean hotel, room is very clean , wide , well furnished tea & coffee maker inside the room and this is very nice option I like it

    too much noise after 11 pm due to the casino , no good resturant near the place , area may not ahigh standard

  • Couple
    7.4

    The hotel is very clean and the food was excellent.

    Food (room service) is a bit overpraised compared to other three star hotels.

  • Couple
    9.6

    The rooms were a high standard and cleaned every day! Hotel staff really helpful and friendly! Rooftop swimming pool and jacuzzi is not the biggest but all you need!! Bus stop right outside the hotel which can take you to the metro station which takes you to all the best parts of Dubai! Will definately be staying here again!

    The pub in the hotel was quite noisy, i was staying on the 4th floor and it could just be heard!

  • Family with children
    6.2

    The cleanlinesss of the hotel was good.

    The staff at the reception are quite rude and un-friendly. They do not give a proper ear to the customers' queiries but rather stress on their own thing.Secondly, the underground parking is badly designed and one has to struggle to park, if the parking is done on your own. The valet parking staff are not at their positions most of the time, but busy elsewhere.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    The room was spacious and comfortable and staff generally very helpful.

    I had booked an extra room as I have trouble sleeping and I know that this was non-refundable, but since I stayed in your hotel, I though at least some of the money may have been refunded. However, when I enquired, was told a definite no. Very unhappy about this and if I come back to Dubai would certainly think twice about staying at the Highland, although I have stayed there twice previously.

    Pool on roof top, cleanliness

    Yeah, drink was too much expensive. Red Label was for 500 AED which triple then market rate
