I´ve stayed last week for 5 nights with a group of an International Conference. Everything was fine during the whole stay. The service was great. Ms. Rabab did a very nice and kind assistence during breakfasts.

Everything about this hotel speaks professionalism and excellent service. My wife and I stayed here for a few nights before moving out of Dubai after 10 years and in my view, this is the best all round hotel we stayed at during that time. Whilst the hotel is a few kilometres from the obvious tourist attractions of downtown Dubai, the...

This 5 star hotel is worth every cent you spend here. Everything was perfect so I don't have anything to complain. What you see from the hotel's pictures is what you get. Also the staff was friendly and very professional.

First time I had stayed in this part of Dubai and I was a bit worried as it is at one end close to the airport. However, the standard of the hotel, especially the pools and dining areas more than made up for it. There are great views across the creek to the Burj Khalifa and the Belgium Beer cafe...

My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights as a stopover on our way back to the UK from Phuket in Thailand. As my husband is a Platinum Elite member, we had booked the rooms on points, so you only get a basic room choice. I had emailed the hotel in advance, asking if possible for a room with...

I had stayed a few times here for business and loved it each time, although I had checked-in many other hotels in the city. When I brought my family for a holiday week in Dubai for the first time, I wasn't sure it would fit. Well they were thrilled ! Indeed, despite being more what I consider a business hotel,...
