                    It's a good place to stay at a quite area.

                    It's not about the hotel. It's about 'Booked.net'. The way the room price was indicate is very misleading. The room price indicted to me was 650 AED, below this statement (in small font) 'tax and service charge not included', then at the bottom 'Total price for this room: 650 AED. Total price, in any invice, means every thing i.e. if taxes and other charges are applicable then should be added to the total. Your rivals are doind so, some have price calculater within their system. I have paid 130 AED in such charges though believing these were included inmy "total cost'.

                    I was not expecting that the hotel will be this nice!

                    I think the crown plaza festival city has satisfied all my expectations of a 5 stars hotel. All staff were frindely and they had no problem in going an extra mile for you. The location next to a shopping mall is a plus. I will return to this hotel .

                    The room was spacious and clean. The facilities were good. The Festival City mall is about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. We used the spa at their sister hotel which is side-by-side. We also used their pool which was better for children. We stayed once before at the Intercontinental which was more expensive although for staying one night I would go for the cheaper option and use their facilities.

                    Only one small comment - When we went down for breakfast we noticed that the hot food items were at the far end of the countertop (nearer to the kitchen). We had to stretch for what we required. Not a biggie but easily moved.

                    The bar in the hotel was excellent. When we arrived at the hotel (at 9pm) the staff informed us that our room was not ready. After discussions we were upgraded to a suite - this was excellent in size and comfort. Helpful staff.

                    The buffet breakfast was not very comprehensive.

                    Extremely confortable stay, easy shopping and dinning, perfect staff.

                    The rate as appeared on Booked.net shows total, in fact still I need to 20% more for service charges; it is better you show actual final Total.

                    I like the break fast open buffet , it was deliciouse specially they have out side area. and the cleaning of the room

                    i didn't like the sunlight inter the room through toilet , since there is window between the room and the toilet and the toilet door let the light go on the rooms, for people whom they use to sleep at the 100% darkness i don't recommend.

                    Geat access to facilities of crowne plaza and intercontinental. Excellent staff (probably the best trained in Dubai). Nice bars and resaurants in both hotels. Rooms are very well insulated for sound to ensure an uninterrupted nights sleep

                    Beakfast wasn't great. Our toilet wasn't cleaned properly in the hotel room.
