I have stayed at this property for only 2 nights but found it very relaxing and most enjoyable. Located from walking distance to the metro station, Ibn Battuta, it was convenient and just right to my need to be away from the crowded buildings with noise level and lights in town. However, getting a cab was much easier and less pricey than you would have had in other tourist cities.

We have spent 10 nights in France and Switzerland before this and once we arrived the hotel, the warm welcome was exactly what we ever wanted as this was missed out in the past 10 nights of ours. You could see and appreciate the amazing blend of multicultural environment this city and the hotel itself had to offer. The interior and the decoration did really wow us in every sense from the high ceiling at the atrium, tens of hanging delicate Arabian lamps and metal camels in actual size. Our flight from Zurich arrived early in the morning and made us reach the hotel around 8 am, I understood that it was far too early to check in but Boghos, a duty manager, was so kind to give us the room for resting our heads from traveling. That was much appreciated.

The room itself was great. It is spacious, beautiful, and very clean. Thanks to the housekeeping maid for cleaning our room so well. Our stuff messed up on the floor were organized and tidied up every day. The bathroom was worth to be mentioned. I did feel like it should have belonged to higher room category as it was huge with separated bathtub and shower area decorated with glass partition and Arabian design.

The breakfast buffet was fabulous. We had no problem at all in finding a table as it became a classical problem at any big-scale hotel. The vast variety of buffet selection was one of the pleasure. There were many food stations that you did not need to queue up. The service was efficient.

We have not had an opportunity to have a dinner at one of hotel's restaurants, only have we enjoyed the drink at Moroccan bar adjacent to the reception. Sipping a cold beer with yummy tapas in the outdoor setting with the gentle breeze and the big archway as the backdrop, that was one of the chillaxing nights to have.

Not forget to mention the exceptional service of Chavee, a guest relations supervisor, who really made our stay simple and easy. With only 2 days available for excursion, we have packed ourselves with dessert safari tour (recommended), big bus tour, and dinner cruise. And there was a problem as we tried to contact the tour company long before for confirming a reservation from our purchased vouchers. It was frustrating as the company would not come to pick us up at the hotel and required us to change the date with specified meeting point at Dubai Mall (the biggest mall in the world and god knows how could we meet with the driver?) Chavee has gone extra miles and made this hassle-free for us. She was really a great asset to the hotel.

Upon departure, we have met with Fadi, Front Office Manager, who had ensured that we were leaving with amazing experience. He kindly managed to arrange us a poshy BMW limo to the airport. That's really awesome!

All in all, if you would like to fancy yourself exploring in this vibrant city of Dubai, this hotel is highly recommended!

I will definitely recommend this hotel, accessible to the metro and mall. It's a place where you feel like home, good ambiance, nice and clean. Don't miss out to try their surf and turf, wide selection of foods. Moroc is a good bar for relaxing. All employees are really friendly and accommodating. Every time I enter this hotel you see them smiling and greeting you from the hotel entrance, restaurants and the gym club. I don't see any hotel as friendly as them, I'm going to give the name of the employees whom I became a friend and who knows they become friend of you too - namely Ann, Quennie, Dhang, Art, Ronald, and Michael. Thank you all for making me feel like I'm home!!!

When I booked this hotel I didn’t realize that it was so far away from the city. But with a metro close by and a beautiful mall right next to the hotel, it overshadows that drawback. It is indeed a MAGNIFICANT hotel!! It’s a huge property and the majestic Ibn Battuta Gate is its crowning jewel. From the minute we stepped in the front door the staff welcomed us with their warm smiles. Everyone, who work here, are great.

This hotel is artistically designed and gives a Dubai-like feel when you enter it. The huge number of lamps hanging from the ceiling gives an amazing look to this place!! It has a superb swimming pool on the 8th floor and also has a free shuttle service to its beach club house. But since me and my friend had only 5 days in Dubai we just couldn’t get the time to avail this service (as there were many more places to explore.)

We had breakfast here every morning and the spread was huge. The Indian food was delicious and the desert spread was simply outstanding.

On foot the metro can be reached within 5 minutes which made traveling very easy for us. Also right next to the hotel is the amazing Ibn Battuta Mall. I personally feel it is one of the most beautiful malls of Dubai.

The hotel is super nice and service is perfect.
We got an upgrade roan executive pack including an executive room ( huge) breakfast and other services. Breakfast alone is quite expensive ( as in all Dubai hotels) you will need to pay 25€ pp, Its trough that You have ALL what You ca-n imagine startung with sushi and endung with pastas....the question is more can you eat all this ?
Just in front of the hotel you have one big mall very handy where you can also take a quick breakfast for only couple of $. Up to you to choose
You need to know the hotel is not on the beach, there is a small pool on the roof but really small only good to enjoy a quick swim after a day work but not ok for holidays
Instead the hotel is proposing you access ( and transportation) to a beautifully beach - pool on the Palm - super nice place wits a restaurant service wifi etc...
Now the only negative part is that this hotel is really far from everything, we did not realized this in the beginning but going to the central area can take you 1 hour and to the old town will definitely take you 2 hours....so plan carefully
At the end was a nice experience with a good ratio quality price

Stayed: March 2014
