This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI

The Howard Johnson Plaza by Wyndham Dubai Deira seems to struggle in providing a peaceful ambiance, with some guests disturbed by the vibrations of club music and calling for an update to the rooms. Although the central location near Al Rigga metro is often appreciated, the hotel's overall value is questioned due to the outdated amenities, including bathrooms and the pool area. Room cleanliness has raised concerns, with reports of cockroach sightings and maintenance issues. Service quality appears inconsistent, with experiences ranging from unhelpful to commendable.

We have just returned from Holiday, we had two weeks in the Maldives and we always have a stopover in Dubai on the way home.

So this time it was three days in the Howard Johnson Plaza by Wyndham Dubai Diera, on Al Rigga, Street.

On our stop over we always pick a hotel that is close to the Metro which is our main form of transport.

This hotel was about 100 yards from Al Rigga station which is four stops from Terminal Three at the airport. For us perfect.

We also look for a 4 or 5 star hotel and only want B & B as we are normally out all day.

The Howard Johnson ticked every box for us, the hotel was clean, and the rooms were functional with everything we needed.

On arrival there was a couple of issues with the room, lack of towels and the safe not working, but within being in the hotel for just on an hour the Operations manager called our room to ask if everything was OK. I mentioned the safe and towels and the matters were addressed immediately with a big apology.

In fact the big plus with this hotel was the staff and partially the manager who personally met me the next day to ensure that everything was put right and if there was anything else he could do to improve our stay, true leadership.

I have to say that the location and facilities in this hotel are great for what we wanted but I would not describe it as a holiday hotel where you are going to spend most if not all of your time in the hotel. They had a roof pool but from there you did not have beach views if you get my point.

If you want a place to explore Dubai this hotel is ideal.

We will no doubt stay here again on our next trip to Dubai.

Many thanks to all the staff.

We had the worst guest experience ever in this simply horrifically awful place. It ruined our holiday. Checked in. Booked 3 rooms. Room 1 filthy floor, moldy bathroom . Room 2 cracked bath. Leaking ceiling in bathroom from the room above with dirty water dripping through the light fixture above the shower which could potentially be a deathtrap for some other person unfortunate enough to be duped into booking here by the misleading photos, and the sink was filthy and mouldy around the edges mouldy sink and the drain was blocked with masses of dirty old hair of previous occupants.
Room 3 terrible bathroom mould everywhere and old fingernails found on the bedroom floor.
Changed rooms.
New Room 1 Broken fridge and leaking toilet which was eventually mended but the old mouldy substance left on the bathroom floor. No towels or toilet paper changed.
New Room 2 found cockroaches on the ceiling and walls at night and reported but no action taken until the next day when the manager was on site, so sleeping in cockroach infested filthy environment.
New Room 3 dirty bathtub and sink but after complained cleaned.
Photos of the swimming pool are obviously taken in much better days. It's horrible there. Dirty, mouldy , broken swimming tiles, murky looking swimming pool water and a broken jaccuzzi which was full of cloudy water which looked like a recipe for legionnaires disease, and old dirty covers on the chairs , but friendly staff doing their best under appalling conditions.
The spa facilities advertised are non existent as nothing works.
Booked and paid extra for breakfast but the food was of an appallingly low standard and my son got ill after eating the fruit so we ate most days elsewhere or just went for coffee.
To be honest most staff are friendly but I get the impression they lack any supervision or guidance and half heartedly perform their housekeeping duties and to be honest I can see why that is as they cannot fix years of black mould and broken amenities with a spray and cloth.
There is a complete lack of maintenance and from what I see most of the bathrooms are severely outdated and due for replacement.
The cherry on the cake was the manager promised to arrange our airport transfer to compensate but we were later called and asked to pay for it.
Moral of the story is DONT STAY HERE!!!! If you go past the lobby the place is a disease inducing death trap.

I had a great time at the HoJo Plaza by Wyndham in Dubai Deira. Its location is not far from the public transportation system that can take you virtually to any of the shiny tourist places in Dubai, but since the hotel itself is in Deira - the old town of Dubai, a cozy and lively place that's mostly populated by expats living in the UAE -, the fares are infinitely better if you're on a budget trip. It also helps that the building and its rooms are very big and comfortable, so your time there won't even feel like a budget trip at all.

We came back from shopping and we want to take a shower but the tap water is too hot and I can't even wash my hands propaly.
I called reception at 9:20 PM but the staff showed up at 10:36 PM and we are very tired and waiting almost one hour.
When engineering came to check, staff mentioned the water temperature will be same as outside temperature and there is no solution due to hotel watercooling system was also broken.
I asked to move to another room but the staff replied all the rooms have same issue.
I was totally speechless for this kinda response!
Shame on you Howard's Johnson!!!
There are almost 1000 hotels in Dubai and among them we chose this hotel to stay but we are very very disappointed and hope management see this review and be responsible to give worth facilities and service to your customers.
We will never ever come back to this hotel!

As described above
Poor in all regards
Cleanliness below par
Room service only doing basic things
Kettle initially not working needing replacement
Phone line needed repair
Above all: most disappointing of all was non caring for kids foods that needed to be heated up- I had to feed my children cold food , with them only having few spoonfuls. Shameful hotel policy!
No daily towels for kids x2 given during the 2-3 days, despite requests .
Pressing of door bell at 5am on few occasions ?? Even if mistakenly a light button was activated, who disturbs residents at 5am with 3 consecutive door bells?!

The hotel has an attractivve location beside the Metro, bus and shopping mall.
I made a booking through Booking.com, the price which was presented to me on the screen was about AED 500 including breakfast and taxes.
After the booking I didn't have time to check the booking confirmation. I got an email, which was enough for me to assume that all was settled. However, at check in, I was asked to pay AED 683,- which is far more than the rate and room, which I viewed at the website of booking.com. I checked the confirmation of booking.com and found that they confirmed a higher rate than I had selected during booking? This never happened to me before for any booking. Therefore I didn't check the confirmation as I was in a hurry. At the time I noticed it, it was unfortunately too late and the option to cancel the booking was expired. I had no other choice than excepting the overnight. I asked for a reduction of the price but the reception could not do anything about it. I will complain about this topic at booking as I booked there.
However, for such a rate, I should at least have a perfect stay, unfortunatly, I found the hotel is very crowded with many very low social class of people.
I was staying in room 334 and in the middle of the night at 4 am, a family arrived beside me in room 333, they had a lot of children and made horrible noise, like they were renovating the place.
All in All the total experience from booking, and service was very dissatesfactory.

I stayed here with my partner. For Dubai, we expected a 4* hotel to at least be pretty decent but this was far from it! Firstly check in was ridiculously slow. We were tired and had to wait over half an hour to receive 2 keys being pushed to the back of the queue multiple times. The room was smaller than we expected but clean nonetheless when we arrived. It was not quite great start. It was lucky that we went in January because our air conditioning stopped working twice. The only good thing I can say is that the problem was resolved quickly. The hotel pool is fairly small and the loungers are not good quality nor can you sit in this area in the evening as it is locked after 6, which was annoying as we wanted to have dinner up there and knew there were seating areas there. There are lots of shops nearby and it is a central location so don't buy breakfast at the hotel as it is really awful and bad value for money in comparison to what you can get nearby. I would have liked to give this a 3 but right at check out, one of the receptionists was very rude to my partner exclaiming that we should have come to check out sooner because we were being made to wait once again just to check out. If the hotel knows this will be a busy checkout time, they should make checkout simpler or get more staff. Regardless, the way my partner was spoken to by staff was unacceptable. So all in all, do stay here if you want a central location in Deira but not if you are looking for value for money or a relaxing time as this is not where you will find it
