    The Rooms and the Bathrooms were clean and very comfortable and cosy , very relaxing place and Quite and Serene -

    The website misguides guests as having a spa , the free wifi in the lobby was not available

    All good and I will definitely stay there again on my next trip to Dubai. Much better than staying in centre of Bur Dubai.

    On the edge of Bur Dubai so walking to shops not easy but taxis not expensive.

    When we came there, my name was not listed on the people who had a reservation. I had to pay extra to use their business center to get my reservation number. We ordered room service and the Pizza margherita was burnt and not appealing at all. However,the room service guy was very helpful and the room service order taker was polite. Also, the place was clean and the ambiance was relaxinng and they have good size tv. I will definitely come back and stay here yet I will not order pizza anymore.

    The ac was too cold and the temperature control was not working in 2 of the 3 rooms we booked, so I had to keep turning the ac on & off all the time to maintain the temperature as needed, this problem was worst at night.

    Clean. You have no choice on the unbelievable high price in Dubai.

    The most worse shorting coming is that they collect the passports of the travelers.

    the price is reasonable during the low session

    The noise coming from the club is crazy and not accepted

    Location very good - it was Comfort

    overall service was quiet good and the location is perfect.

    The fee that I paid was acually more than I was quoted on Booked.net they added a 20% tax which I don't know how they came up with. They also offered me the room without complimentary breakfast, which I found rediculous.

    When I booked with Booked.net u taken my Americanexpress credit card! But rio they did not accept the americanexpress card they said only cash or visa and master , I wonder if I was not carrying other card what will happen and if not accepted why Booked.net putting americanexpress for rio hotel

    I dont recomend this hotel to anybody. I stayed two nights and I didnt found one positve point which I can talk about.

    i did select the hotel because of the location, but frankly speaking i was disappointed with the size of rooms, and its interiors, i have stayed at many other hotels in dubai of the same price , but this one was very poor compared to others. In my opinion it did not match general expectation of any traveller expect the location

    The service wasn't really that efficient. Not so friendly staffs.

  • Couple
    8.2

    It is one of the best hotel you can stay on for this price. Perfect hotel for the value. Friendly staff, especially Lisa from Reception very accommodating, rooms are clean and beds were comfortable. I have been staying in Rio many times within 3 years, happy so far.

    When they have charge for ice they better have ice bucket for ice to keep it longer.

    Cleanliness was up to the mark.

    Hotel Staff didn't speak English well which made communication difficult.

  • Couple
    4.6

    Only that you could change money at the front desk. But, all dubai hotels do that. We would never stay there again. Our non-smoking floor smelled like we were in a smoking lounge. There was construction so difficult to get to. We would pay double the price for a nicer hotel. Not worth the cheap price!!!

    Wreaked of cigarette smoke in our non-smoking room. It was filthy!! Didn't want to even take our shoes off in the room.
