Kenyandes Couples - TripAdvisor review

Extremely disappointing. On arrival at 3am there is no bellboy or concierge staff. So we are standing outside with no one to receive us. Cab driver gets out and goes into the hotel. Finds a security guard who then goes to find a cleaner who comes back to help with the luggage. 5 min in an the bell boy appears. We move to the front desk reception and are informed we don't have a booking as someone cancelled it. They proceed to say that the hotel is full so they cannot give us any space even if we wanted to book again. Very cold and abrupt front office manager. Panicky we retreat to the lounge and ask if we can call our agents emergency number. We are informed that the hotel phones cannot be used for calls that aren't local. I manage to log in to guest WiFi (the hotel doesn't even tell me about this) Few whatsapp later I manage to get my agent who informs me booking is there but under my wife's name. New person at the reception magically finds the booking and proceeds to tell us our room is not available but we have been given an upgrade. Some good news finally. Not really. Breakfast is very limited and mainly towards Arabic cuisine. Egg station total chaos as you get your eggs 20 min after you had your toast and tea. There are absolutely no cabs available at the hotel. In my three days there average wait time for a cab was around 20 to 25 min with one evening waiting for 45min. None of the staff assist unless you look like a very influential person or you happen to have your rolls Royce parked in the basement. Bellboy is overwhelmed picking luggage and trying to order a cab. Rest of the so called staff only on hand to park cars or mysteriously appear if you speak Arabic or want to hire a private limousine. Even when we did get back once from shopping no staff to assist with luggage/shopping. Food is very average. Burgers are greasy, lack any seasoning whatsoever. In general the food was way below average. In room dining is a joke. Wait time from 30min to 1hr 10 min for your meal. Order a vegetarian dish they bring one with chicken.. When you ring to complain your put on hold for 10 min then cut off and they ring you back only to deny and state that "chicken was ordered" even though I have been a vegetarian 40 years plus. The staff are so hard pressed to speak English you cannot understand what they are saying. Neither can they understand you. Hotel boasts of a pillow menu when one doesn't exist. They got 2 types or pillows. One made with feathers that you can fold into a napkin the other the size of a couch cushion. Extremely difficult to sleep if you have back or neck issues. Spa we were told had been fully booked for 15 days straight and their staff least bothered to accommodate you. If you have medical work and need to be in health care City suggest the Hyatt or Raffles. Unless you are so pressed to stay here would gladly tell you there are numerous hotels in Dubai that can accommodate you with much better standards. Only call we ever got (in spite of our small complaint) was from management to remind us check out time is 12pm and no later Disappointing!

Viry nice staff and services
