Don't know how this hotel received the poor comments.
We have just returned from a week's stay there which coincided with the first week of Ramadan. We stayed on the 7th floor and had a good 3 way view of the marina. The rooms were kept spotless by the staff and any maintenance issues were dealt with straight away.
We were on a bed and breakfast basis and the food was always hot (where applicable) with a plentiful supply. The waiting staff were spot on and polite. There were no mad rushes or waits for food at breakfast. However, being in Ramadan one of the restaurants was closed and the other offered a limited menu until later in the evening due to Iftar being given priority. The food and drink in the Nel Gwyn was good and there was a good choice, however, and like the rest of Dubai, the alcoholic drinks were expensive with a pint of Stella being around £9!
The front desk staff were always friendly and willing to please, as were the rest of the staff in general.
The rooftop pool was good and never to busy so you could virtually guarantee a sunbed. The bar up there serves food and drink, but only after 8 pm in Ramadan.
Didn't use the Spa so can't comment and the nightclub was closed due to Ramadan.
The hotel is ideally situated as it is only about 10 minute walk, if that, to the beach, Marina Mall, water taxis, ferry, tram and Metro.
If we were going to Dubai again this hotel would be on the top of the list, but maybe not during Ramadan again as Dubai is generally quite quiet then.
For non-Muslims away from the hotel, there are plenty of places to dine during the day, especially in the malls where screens are erected around the food courts to prevent offence to Muslims.

Room Tip: Ask for marina view and not above nightclub (if open)

I stayed at this hotel last week for five nights with 4 other members of my family and thought the hotel was great, I was worried after reading some of the other reviews but think the hotel must of taken some comments on board and changed things.
The location is superb, we stayed on the 5th floor overlooking the Marina and the room was clean and spacious, staff were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was fine all of us managed to find something we enjoyed every morning, we heard no noise at night from the bar or club. The English bar is great for a nice cold beer after a day at the beach.

Great location, 5 min walk to JBR and 2 min walk to JLT metro. Bedroom nice and clean, very modern.

What let me down with this hotel was the service... staff didn’t make us feel welcome. No one greeting you when entering the hotel, valet parking waiting for you to come out the car rather than opening your door for you, breakfast was nice but not a big variety like other 4* hotels in Dubai.

Usually when you walk into a 4/5* hotel you get a nice smell and breezy air con as you enter which this hotel lacked in.

Pool on rooftop which is isn’t bad with good views.

Room cleaner rung the bell to collect the iron and by the time we could get up from bed and answer he helped himself in which I didn’t like as we could’ve been in the shower, getting changed etc.

Overall nothing wow about this hotel but decent.

Me and my Boyfriend stayed for a few days in the hotel. The room was lovely and clean and the staff was nice
You could hear a little bit of construction noise from the outside but it didn't bother me too much
Pool area is nice and has a lovely view and the location is great. You have good and easy access to the Metro which is quite cheap and easy to get around
Breakfast was nice but it would have been nice to have a few more breakfast cereal options and more variarity of spreads
I did really enjoy the stay though and would come back:)
