Reviewed 6 January 2014

We were lucky to book this hotel on New Year night. This proved the best possible choice and the best value for money. Watched the Burj Khalifa firework from the hotel gate and away from crowd and hassle. Hotel staff is very polite and serve guests very well. Starbucks is next door and a small shopping mall (Souk) is part of hotel where one can buy grocery from Spinneys and a small bakery - Bakers and Spice - where one can have breakfast or light lunch / dinner. We had a Salad platter and Pasta in evening with fresh Pomegranate juice. Great taste at very reasonable prices. The hotel has serene surrounding and the best part is its location - 5 minutes walk to Dubai Mall across the road crossing Souq Al Bahr or The Palace hotel bridge. Taxis are available all day and night outside hotel to go any where in Dubai at very cheap fare. Would love to stay again in this hotel on next New year eve.

Stayed: December 2013, travelled as a couple

We stayed for 2 nights during a stop over from Sydney Australia to Nice France at the start of our holiday. It has everything you want in a luxury hotel and only wish we could've stayed longer! The area is beautiful, clean and very safe... Just a short walk to the Burj Khalifa and the biggest mall in the world. The staff are lovely, the beds are big and comfy and the breakfast is awesome! Highly recommend this to anyone wanting a good value for money, mid sized luxury hotel, in downtown Dubai.

Highly recommend the hotel if you are stopping in Dubai for a couple of nights for a holiday or business. Is located in a perfect location a couple of minutes walk from the the world’s tallest building (Burj Khalifa), the world's biggest shopping mall (The Dubai Mall). Also liked being able to book a room with a view of the tallest building in the world. As we arrived in Dubai on an early flight the staff managed to check us in many hours early which was great as had just flown from Australia on a long flight. Also if you like middle eastern food then i highly recommend the courtyard restaurant. Noticed many outside guest also like the courtyard restaurant.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the Burj Khalifa (Tallest building in the world)

My wife and I have just returned from a week at the Al Manzil. The hotel is fabulous, the staff are friendly and very efficient and the location near to the Burj Kalifa and Downtown area is ideal. We've stayed in numerous five star hotels around the world and this definitely compares with some of the best, although it's only officially four star. I couldn't recommend it more highly. If you're visiting Dubai it's a great place to stay.

Room Tip: We enjoyed our room overlooking the pool area so did not have traffic noise

Conveniently located across one road from the downtown restaurants and souks this hotel is compact with a "local feel" to the decor. The rooms have a novel, open glass bathrooms that work well to make best use of the space and some of the views to Burj Khalifa are superb. Many of the staff are friendly and accommodating- the front desk less so - but a hotel to return to. The Boulevard Cafe had good food and is a pleasant spot from which to watch the world go by.

This hotel is a solid 4 star hotel. I only stayed here for half a day but from what I experienced the staff were very attentive and the hotel was clean and nice.

Location is excellent and only 5 minutes walk from Dubai mall and the fountains.

Within easy walk to Dubai Mall, Views of Burj Khalifa which is close by, the hotel is very modern and clean, with friendly staff. Breakfast selection is fantastic, and there are some nice places to eat within the hotel shops. Highly recommend this hotel.
