We liked the location, it is walking distance to Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall, so it’s great for evening. Our studio had a big balcony with a pool view and all you need for cooking. But there is a restaurant that offers buffet breakfast until 12pm for 85 AED per person. You can’t book in advance, but just come there and get fruit, fresh eggs, pancakes, coffee all you need to start a day. Restaurant also has coffee and snacks (very tasty tuna sandwich), so you don’t have to cook during the day. Pool is usually quite full but you can always find a place and is peaceful. You can order when you want your room to be cleaned and get new towels. Staff is exceptionally friendly and will help you whatever you need. We definitely recommend it.

Great location in business bay very close to the Burj Khalifa where we enjoyed going to watch the fountain shows in the evening. The rooms were well equipped and was a great bonus having the washing machine and ability to make own breakfast. will def recommend to stays around business bay.

My Director is a frequent traveler from South Africa to Dubai. His family and himself have stayed at some of the most amazing hotels such as the Waldorf Astoria, Conrad Dubai and a few others of such standard, over the years. He decided this Christmas Holidays, he will choose Sonder Business Bay on Marasi Drive UAE. On the first night of check in, his family and himself, after a tiresome 2 long hauled flights, just needed a good shower and some rest before they began their Holiday Plans. They were welcomed to cold showers unfortunately! We complained numerous times to the Hotel Personnel and on the Sonder App.
A maintenance team called in at the apartment yesterday and was unable to fix the hot water problem. We complained once again and sadly advised Sonder that we wish to seek another hotel with hot water and therefore require a refund for the balance of the unused stay. It is a busy time in Dubai and this is not what my director and his family was expected to endure. He overlooked a few other things that he did not like about this Hotel but decided to move past this if Only the Hot Water could be restored. My director and I are now hunting around for availability at other Hotels. The family were due to check out of Sonder Business Bay on 7 Jan 2023, so they relied on a comfortable stay for this long term booking! We asked the Sonder Chat agents if they had another 2 or 3 bedroom Apartment at this Hotel with hot water to accommodate the family but it was fully booked. We then asked for availability at Sonder Downtown Towers and was advised they were fully booked. We also requested the Hotel Managers details and is yet to receive this. My director then met with the Building Maintenance Manager this afternoon and it was quite certain, the problem will not be fixed anytime soon.

Thoroughly disappointed during a period that supposed to be festive and joyful which has now become uncomfortable and stressful.

I was pleasently surprised! Originally I had booked a 4nights stay at Sonder before checking in at a hyped 5* star hotel in Dubai. Little did I know that Sonder would have surpassed my expectations and the 5* hotels.

We arrived very early in the morning, the staff were very nice did our checkin procedures and we were allocated our rooms. A 2bedroom apartment on the 12th floor, wow! I was surprised by how good the apartment looked, looked brand new.. the facilities were very nice , decoration was on point and we even had a massive balcony with a view on the canal ! So so nice, there were ample room for the 4 of us in the apartment.

I liked the facilities provided such as the restaurant to have breakfast, the pool with a view on Burj Khalifa, the gym and the porter who are also ready to open your door from the taxi.

I checked out to this 5* star hotel and was so dissatisfied that I decided to come back to Sonder again for the rest of my stay. We booked a 3bedrooms apartment on the 15th floor this time with a city view. The staff were extremely nice and accommodating since I booked the apartment like 5hrs before my checkin.

The 3 bedroom apartment was very spacious, however the balcony was smaller compared to the 2bedroom apartment. The maid’s room bathroom had a few issues which was quickly fixed by the maintenance. Loved the fact that there are smart TVs in practically all the rooms.

The only negative point was , when I first checked in the 2bedrooms apartment I had room cleaning everyday, however when I booked the second time I was told that this is not applicable and chargeable.. well nevermind we managed.

Overall I had a pleasant stay at Sonder! I would recommend a 100%. I will come back there for my next stay in Dubai.

Oh maybe I forgot to mention that its just 5 mins away from the Dubai Mall and all other facilities downtown.

Big disappointment, booked for special occation a rroom for 4 people with ocean view and balcony.
When we arrived we got a room on the 1 st floor no view, hotel said there were no ocean views available.
We booked for 4 persons but there were only bedding for 2 people.
Couldnt sleep for a week since room was facing street with constant traffic and no isolation of sound like sleeping outside next to highway.
No cleaning or empty trash for a week if you need to do this you had to pay for that additional.
We wanted to cancel last night and they refused and referred to hotels.com that do not have an online customer service to not able to react them either.
Pool is very nice but crowded.
Far away from beach to you need to go bybtaxi everyday to enjoy sun.

Responded 15 Feb 2024
We apologize for the disappointment and inconvenience you experienced during your stay. It's regrettable that we could not provide the room type and amenities you expected for your special occasion. We'll review our booking and room allocation procedures to prevent similar occurrences in the future. We understand the importance of a restful night's sleep — our team is always happy to deliver a white noise machine and earplugs to help. Please accept our apologies for the confusion with trash emptying. While a complete cleaning of your space is at an additional fee, there are two garbage chutes at both ends of the hallway on each floor for guest use. Should you decide to give us another chance, we'd love to help you choose the perfect space for your next visit.

I recently visited Sonder in Business Bay Dubai. I was dubious at first as there were only a few reviews as the place has only been open for 6 months. But I can honestly say I was absolutely astounded by the quality of this hotel.

Small touches made it feel like luxury - free concierge upon arrival was a lovely touch, as well as being given a room with a balcony with a view of the Burj.

The rooms were spacious, and fitted with everything we needed. The location is great and there are staff always around to offer help. The facilities were fab with a pool and poolside coffee bar. I’d definitely stay again.

Every single person we spoke to in the hotel was welcoming and on hand to help. On one occasion we accidentally ordered a taxi to the other side of the road and one of the hotel staff members kindly crossed the road and redirected our taxi to the front of the hotel.

I’d definitely stay again and recommend to my friends.

The ONLY recommendation I’d have for the hotel would be to include more coffee pods in the room, 4 pods for 4 people x 4 days was not enough for us coffee drinkers :)

Just returned with family after a week long stay at SAAS Tower, Dubai. We booked an apartment which was exceptional and clean (only opened 4 weeks ago). Just want to say a massive thank you for the excellent service we received. In particular the customer care provided by Roger at reception was exceptional he really went out of his way to make us welcome and comfortable. He is a real gentleman and a credit to the Hotel. The hotel service overall is superb and the location is ideal as its very central. It is around 25minutes drive from the airport and The Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa are 10minutes walk from the hotel. Will book again.

I have a great stay with family. My brother and sister in-law recommended me this place. It was closer to my sister in-law apartment.
I had my 3 year old nephew visiting us everyday.
The staff was friendly and helpful when need something. One thing didn’t request the iron didn’t work in my room. Whereas for me it wasn’t a problem but did mention during checkout.
Another thing I didn’t like the restaurant which was a Turkish cuisine which the chef did cook delicious food. However the food was served with broken plates. I did complain to change the plate and at the end gave us complimentary dessert. When I requested the bill saw in the receipt the dessert was not complimentary. I complained again for second time. Didn’t even say sorry but they deduct the dessert from the bill.
Oh my god it kind of spoiled the rest of my day with this stupid things.
I visit restaurants in daily basis and never got served with broken plates.
For me the restaurant was a let down!
Overall my stay was great and will definitely return again.

Very nice workers, very professional place to stay. I enjoyed my time there and do recommend others to go there when on holiday or on long trips. They also made sure to ensure the people staying had all their amenities and so on and always refilled if needed.
