Default The Address

Subject of those annoying radio ads. Has anyone actually been?

It strikes me that a hotel that has to advertise itself as 'the hottest new venue in town' is not really hot at all.

Likewise, any hotel that advertises itself as 'iconic' without someone else first putting the label on it.....

I have to say the radio ads make me not want to go.

Hadn't heard those.

To be fair, it's quite a nice hotel inside and we have friends staying there at the moment. The lights on the outside are a bit much but the hotel is only the first 12 floors, the rest are apartments.

The Brazilian bar on the lobby level is quite nice although to sit outside you now need to book it appears even on a week night.

There is a bar on the 63rd floor which has great views but I believe they ask an entry fee of AED100 just to go up there!

i like the hotel decor, and the loos downstairs are fab, despite the sinks being low enough even for my kids...

the bar on the 63 floor is ok, shite music, but there is a weird mix of people in there at the mo, guess they are all checking it out, wouldn't rush to go back...service was dreadful in there and it wasn't even that busy...

MM, xx

I went a couple of months back and thought it was alreet, nice to sit outside and enjoy a drink or two.

Getting a cab home was a bit annoying, but i think its easier now as more is open in the area...

Seconded.....

My partner was there the other night and, aside from being pissed off that he had to pay 200 cover charge for him and his gf, he had to ask for the bill 3 times.

After 20 mins waiting - and still no response - he simply got up and walked out without paying. Surprise surprise, someone chased him to the lift....sir sir! He made the poor chappy travel down in the lift with him while he paid!

Will still take a looky-see...even if it just for the sport of paying the bill.

The most annoying ads...Especially the one where a guy plays the role of an international gangmaster for a bunch of muppets...Clowns...
