Metropolitan Hotel Deira
Large hotel near the famous Deira clock tower and many older tourist attractions Discuss this article
This mid-market hotel was built back in 1998 and despite occupying a central position in busy downtown Deira, an air of calm and peace prevails inside.
The hotel is a little past its sell by date, though; the lobby has recently been refurbished yet still looks as though it is desperately in need of a face-lift. Meanwhile, the rooms may be comfortable and clean, but they’re also slightly tired, while the rooftop swimming pool is somewhat shabby.
Other facilities include a gym and a few restaurants. The Metropolitan’s main draw card is its location; adjacent to the famous Clock Tower roundabout, it’s close to the Creek, corniche and Deira City Centre shopping mall.
The hotel offers a daily complimentary shuttle bus service to the latter as well as to the Habtoor Grand Resort & Spa, where guests get to use the beach facilities at a discounted rate. All in all, the Metropolitan Hotel is nothing to write home about, but while you won’t come away wowed, neither will you come away broke.By Time Out Dubai staff
