                              friendly staff, hotel and rooms well decorated with a luxury feel. Quiet rooms. Modern and popular 'underground' nightclub -Submarine- with changing themes, situated in basement.

                              The use of an internetconnection could be at better rates, and be aware that 10% service charge and 10% tax will be added.

                              cosy rooms, friendly staff, adequate gym and sauna/steam room facilities. rooms are quiet at night. easy check in.

                              the layout of the sauna/steam room was ok but not ideal as one had to walk outside the changing rooms to get into the sauna or steam room.

                              nice hotel, cosy rooms, friendly staff, comfortable lobby area. Guests can stay, no fuss. Gym and Sauna adequate.

                              minor things need fixing, e.g. towel holder was loose. Sauna was not accessible directly from changing rooms.

                              Not all staff were proffessional, you do not feel very much welcome. For the same price, there are more better hotels in Dubai than Dhow. I did not like the furniture- cheap victorian style.
