"Dreadful rude staff - attitude, attitude, attitude...."
My friends and I went to Deck on 8 for some food and beverage tonight. Whilst the food was good , the staff were the rudest that I have ever experienced in any restaurant/bar in my life. The simplest of requests were met with a groan of disapproval, the attitude of the Waitress (and Waiter at one stage) were simply shocking. I know it's probably not a fair reflection of the hotel as a whole, however, these are the people on the front line and customers make their opinion based on who they deal with. We did try to complain, but the bar superviser couldn't be found at the time. Absolutely horrifying service,... And even though we live within a 2 minute walk - we will never be going back there again. Dreadful, simply dreadful.
"Cafè M "
We decided to have an aperitivo at the Cafe M at Media One hotel. Very good choice, nice atmosphere with valid selection of cheese and wines. Friendly people and excellent service (in particular Anish).
The food is mouth watering from nibbles we ordered grilled scottish salmon to grilled beef rib eye and chocolate fondant is heavenly😊. Cool place to chill after work with friends/ colleagues. Thanks to Usha for accommodating us.
This is still one of my top choices in Dubai, very worm welcome, nice professional staff with a positive energy that makes your stay great. I would like to thanks Angel a new member of the staff who looked after me this morning, she is new but work with a very high enthusiasm, pleasant decent character. Thanks to Media One for keeping the stander.
"My 62-worth-it-days with Media One"
I'm currently in Dubai for a 2-month long work assignment and we chose Media One as our home due to it's modern theme (aside from it's just a few steps away from the office). I don't know what to expect at first, I'm a bit affected by the past reviews about this hotel being so noisy and what-not but to my surprise, I am enjoying every moment of my stay (it's my 37th day today). Best 3 I loved... - the buffet! There were many Filipinos in the hotel's roster - and it felt homey. But, what makes it special are these people: Alyssa (whose muscles are bulding due to our heavy plates! Haha), Shan (ohhh more sinigang pleaaassee haha), Vikram (your pancakes and omelettes are just the best) ...I forgot the name of the filipina and the reception who never failed to greet us - but she sure set's the mood to good for the day :) - how Hamid smiles and greets us in the morning after we leave the room - he's our frequent housekeeper! Makes sure our room always stays in shape. Whenever I miss a day of housekeeping, the hotel makes sures I got all I need. - the gym! Equipments are very good - but the sauna is currently closed for renovation... faster please :) The 3 things I wish... - the sauna and pool opens again (though I understand that it's currently under renovation). - something to dry my clothes on, other hotels has this metal thing which gets warm - offers for lower rates, I found the normal rates a bit high. If not possible, then, I wish for world peace instead :D I definitely would recommend this hotel :)
