“Fantastic location!”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

This was a very comfortable and charming hotel in the perfect location. We could walk across the street to the Souk al Bahar, then onwards along the fountain path to Dubai Mall; all with an incredible view of the Burj Khalifa. The kids loved the swimming pool and the open bath didn't bother us too much as the shower and toilet were private enough with frosted glass. After a warm and gracious reception, our only complaint is that we were left to wait in the lobby (with 3 tired and hungry kids) for more than an hour to be given the keys to our rooms, despite arriving after 3pm.

Room Tip: Pool-side rooms have a nice view.

After spending hours sifting through hotels i finally decided to go for this for my five night stay and boy did i make a good decision. This hotel surpassed my expectations. Whenever i travel I usually always opt for design/boutique hotels which are pretty much non existent in Dubai. This offered the best of both worlds...traditional but with a really slick contemporary open plan bathroom which i loved. The room (with pool view) was much more spacious than i had thought going by photos on this site. Unlike the larger 'gaudy' hotels so typical of Dubai this felt more intimate, stylish and sophisticated (I had initially wanted to stay at Atlantis but after going there and seeing just how commercial and tacky it looked Al Manzil wins hands down). Staff were so friendly and room service was great. nice pool and superb location moments from Burj Khalifa and shopping mall... surely has to be one of the best hotels going in the city. If i had one minor complaint it would be that the pillows were a bit too soft for my liking but can overlook that. One thing i hadnt taken into account was the tax added onto the final bill...booked through Opodo and there was no mention of this so beware! All in all i dont think i'd rather want to stay anywhere else next time around.

We recently had the pleasure of once again staying in this amazing hotel. This time we booked a Burj View Suite. The room was fantastic with a wonderful view of the Burj Khalifa from the balcony. We also had a complimentary pickup from the airport. When we arrived there we were greeted by the staff who remembered us from our stay there last April. This made it more personal and made us feel very welcome.
If you need to be close to Dubai Mall and the Burj Khalifa, then this is the right place for you.
Wonderful staff. Wonderful hotel.

This was the first time I was in Dubai and definitely I will be back next time I travel to Dubai. The staff is excellent, so smiling and friendly that i never ever seen such a positive attitude in any of the hotels i have ever stayed in my life. Impressive service.
The room has a good size, very confortable. The food from breakfast to dinner is excellent. Every morning I had the best cappucino! much more better than many places in London!!!
The location is great, just opposite Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall.
Absolutely nothing to complain and definitely I recommend this hotel.

As attendees from South Africa to the Arabian Travel Market each year, it makes sense for us to stick with the Southern Sun hotel brand, proudly South African! It was not surprising therefore that we stayed at Al Manzil.
Again, a very pleasant stay was enjoyed and I take my hat off to each staff member in the hotel! Unbelievable service, always a smile and a warm greeting no matter what time of day. We especially enjoyed the outdoor Courtyard area, making it our last visit of the evening before retiring! The Restaurant and Shisha Lounge run without a hitch, a fine addition to an amazing hotel. Special thanks to the friends we have made at the hotel, Oscar, Oswald, Ramy, Sofian, Mohamed, any other names that I have forgotten! You are all great and we hope to see you next year!

A 4 star hotel, that is cleverly designed to mimic the best of 5 star hotels. Location is fantastic (3 min walk to Dubai Mall, and Burj Khalifa), and the rooms are modern and spacious. This hotel truly offers fantastic value for money and you are surrounded by plenty of entertainment venues and restaurants.

Only downside for some (if traveling with a companion) might be the fact that the toilet in the room is only sealed off from the rest of the room by fogged up glass (not good for privacy)
