The stay was excellent, from the booking to the check-in and until the check out. The room was extremely comfortable and spacious with a superb view on Burj Khalifa. The staff were vary kind and efficient whether at the reception, the valet, the waitress in the loddy lounge or even the housekeeping in the middle of the night!

Lovely hotel in the downtown area. Felt that the room lacked lighting, especially in the bathroom. No hooks where to put things. In addition, the concierge, while very pleasant always, the follow up to requests was not consistent.

Overall the hotel was good. The only issue was the very bad room service. It took long, the food was cold. The salad was soggy and not fresh for sure, could not eat it. Am sure it was old (two or three days?). Complained to the manager, they did not care or even apologize.

Great location

Irene K. Business - 11/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Overall stay was good but the condition of the shower room could be improved. The shower head was loose & the shelves was shaky . Even though I was staying on the non-smoking floor and many floors away from the smoking floor, every morning and evening, the toilet smells heavily of cigarette smoke. Overall room cleanliness was acceptable and the towels were pristine white & clean. The morning breakfast was amazing with great selection of food but a few times, the clean cutleries had food debris so had to ask the waitress to change for me. The location is very good as its right besides the Dubai Mall so very convenient.

I would definitely recommend this hotel for a noce stay in Dubai.

ievaziedina 07/01/2022 TripAdvisor review

General impression of the hotel was very good. We have met some extremely kind members of staff, even remembering our room number after one day, but we experienced as well quite aggressive attitude a day before check out - an receptionist ordered us to seek for taxi ourselves although all the other days they helped with finding taxi immediately. Rooms and cleanliness was perfect!

Perfect location and woow breakfast except room service

Amazing hotel, next level service and top-notch location

Customer review rating 5.0/5

Kg Families - 05/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is located on great location, right downtown, with a few minutes access to Burj Khalifa (we were literally 2 mins away from the fireworks). The rooms are great and offer an amazing view and the bathroom is one of the best I've been on (and I've been in quite a few hotels around the world). The staff is very friendy and always willing to help - room service is fast and food is great. Although the hotel is luxurious, the room service charges are not through the roof. The roof-top pool is cool and offers nice skyline view of the surrounding skyscrapers. The food on breakfast buffet is fresh, great and offers great variety - safe to say it was one of the better breakfast buffets I've visited.

Not connected to the dubai mall

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Anonymous Families - 04/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

The reason we decided to stay in the hotel is because it was mentioned that it was connected to the dubai mall which is not true. You have to cross a road and walk for 20 mins in a metro station to get to the mall. Had we known we would've arranged for transportation. No need to mislead people with inaccurate information. The 4 stars i have rated is because the room was spacious and clean and the room service and concierge people were great.

the rooms are large and comfortable but the housekeeping is just not up to five star standards ! They forget to replenish towels , toilletries and bathmats . Room is not cleaned properly . The quality of coffee and green tea in the rooms are below average . They do not accomodate or pay heed to any kind of requests and complaints . feels it all going on deaf ears . however the breakfast spread is good !!
