"The most misleading hotel in Dubai" Al Bustan Residence Tip by mercia1

Al Bustan Residence, Dubai: 208 reviews and 2 photos

A major dissapointment is the only way I can describe this hotel. I booked it because it had lovely looking executive suites on its website. In reality it didnt! The executive check-in didnt exist, Oh the counter did but no one to man it. We waited nearly 30 minutes to check in. The rooms were smelly, small and dark, and if a 2 foot diameter table is classed as executive dining.....! On the 4th floor, the so called executive floor someone had obviously spilt milk because the smell of sour milk was so over whelming I nearly threw up in the corridor. The lounge was ok, large and airy, the food was dreadful and the internet was charged at an outragious hourly rate, unheard of on an executive floor. The al bustan hotel and apts is not much more than a knocking shop and I would heartily recommend everyone to give it a wide berth.

Unique Qualities: small pool, no views, bad food.
