We stayed here for four nights on our first Dubai trip. Well situated very close to a large mall and the indoor ski centre and a metro station. We were informed they had upgraded us but it was clear that our room had been a smoking room in the past and looked very tired. The carpet was certainly past its...

A basic hotel, much the same as others in the area. The rooms were large, clean and quiet. The bed was comfy. The location was within walking distance of the Mall of the Emirates. Pretty much what you would expect for a 3 or 4 star hotel.

The hotel is located within the walking distance of the Mall of the Emirates, so the location is very convenient. It is in a busy area, and it all depends on the room you get. I asked for a quiet room and was very satisfied with what I got. The room was really spacious, clean, with a large bathroom and...

This hotel has exceptional rate specially for business trips. Its location is very convenient just 5 minutes walk from emirates mall and 100 mts from main access. 20 minutes from airport. Internet excellent, and good stuff. The night bar recommendable.

Huge rooms, good location and pleasant porters are the only positives here. Sullen waiters, unhelpful, unprofessional staff, grimy rooms (see pic of disgusting brown stain on bathroom bin), and the NOISE will ensure we never stay at the Donatello again. At check-in we specifically requested quiet rooms on a high floor but were ignored and got rooms on the 2nd...
