“A good spot”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

I stay in this hotel on my business Tripp to Dubai. T me this is a great location. Close to Sheikh Zayed Road and only 20 minutes for Internet City or Media City. Plenty to do after work hours with Dubai Mall only a 5 minute walk and Souk Al Bahr even closer for a mix for restaurants.

Rooms always spotlessly clean and staff very attentive. nice outdoor courtyard to relax all in all highly recommended.

I dont know how the rest of you do if you need to go to the toilet ( that in this case is made of glass and is in the room...) in the middle of the night but when i do it sounds a little... And afterwords i really would like to wash myself before i go to bed again i hope you all do so... Doing that without waking upp my wife was impossible due to the stupid layout of the room. Very strange... Otherwise it was a nice hotell at a good location and a lovely view of Burj Kaliffa! But value for the money it wasnt. I paid almost 1000 Dirhams a night without breakfast and i know i could have get another similar hotell a less cheaper than that in the same area...

This hotel is very conveniently located near the Dubai Mall. Excellent service and the staff are always friendly and have a smile on their faces. Our check in and check out was hassle free. The Nesessaussi grill is a very comfy place to relax with a nice drink and some good food..the live music was nice and not in-your-face. They have a lovely swimming pool on the 1st floor - very nice for people like me who are just learning how to swim!! Beautiful views of the Old Town. The Dubai Mall is just a 5mins away and you can walk through the very quaint Souk Bahar to access the mall. We will definitely stay here again when we visit Dubai next.

2. Rooms are very comfortable - everything works - no remarks
3. Lots of excellent eateries - all of them very good.
4. Staff very helpful - All of them without exception
5. The best sportsbar of Dubai in the hotel
6. Well priced
7. Excellent location - walking distance to the Dubai Mall with view on the Burj Kalifa.
The less good:
Nothing - everything was excellent - not a single remark

Room Tip: ask for a quiet room - I was told that the rooms facing the main street are more affected by the tra...

What a wonderful hotel!! Warm, friendly, not pretentious. We were made to feel like family right from the moment of check-in (with Hazel). Top notch service. We often heard "how can we make your stay more enjoyable". Management must hire to high standards and continually stress service. All staff responded quickly and were very accommodating. Beautiful pool area with very attentive attendants.Room was new-age with open environment but not suitable for everyone as tub and sink are in full view. Good selection of restaurants with shisha in the courtyard. Breakfast buffet was absolutely tremendous1 Everything you could ever want was available and the chef cooked eggs to perfection. Location: great access to Burj Khalifa and Dubai mall. Definitely stay again and would highly recommend!!

I stayed here in February with my husband and 4 year old son and was extremely impressed from the moment we arrived. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and were extremely kind to my little boy who was very fond of Oscar and the chef at breakfast who cooked the eggs! Breakfast itself was outstanding, fresh foods of all description available in abundance. The rooms are lovely and we liked the quirky bathroom layout with the bath in the bedroom! The pool although not huge is plenty big enough for doing lengths in or just cooling off and the pool attendants are extremely attentive; there was never a problem with getting a sun lounger. We ate in the Sports bar which was excellent and very good value, although if you go on a Monday get there early as women eat free and so it's very popular! All in all highly recommend.

The best thing about the Al Manzil is the location. Great walking around Burj Khalifa and Dubai mall, for 8 months of the year anyway. Great hotel if shopping is the focus of your stay.

The all glass open concept bathroom is a bit unusual and not for everyone. No bidet, which are normally standard in the region. Room was nothing special and a bit minimalistic. There was a bit of traffic noise.

Breakfast buffet was good by normal chain hotel standards but nothing special for Dubai.

The free shuttle bus to various locations throughout the day, including Jumeirah Beach and Mall of the Emirates was a nice option.

Overall, decent value in an expensive city.
