I just sent 3 bug reports to +Google+ team using the Send feedback button on the iPhone. I hope they receive it. They are mostly issues relating to the usability of the application.

I wish +Google+ had some landing page giving us ideas to encourage our friends to use Google+ rather than just asking us to invite them.

Visited the pub yesterday. Friendly staff, reasonably priced drinks and great central location.

Well, without a doubt the location is great. However, there are some issues with the hotel. For the price you pay, you'd expect free breakfast, or at least free internet. No. You have to pay £7 per day for breakfast and £6 per day for the internet or £18 per week, which is ridiculous. I am staying in the one bedroom flat, which is clean. I have a feeling they won't come to clean the room until I check out but you can rent a cleaning service for £20 as I saw at the reception. So, I wouldn't stay here again for the above reasons. I am a smoker and I would expect to be able to open windows so I can smoke by the window but you can't do that either.

It's an amazing experience to be in Dubai and all what it has to offer. Dubai Mall and the surrounding amenities are definitely worth a visit if you are heading to Dubai for a holiday.
