I stayed here for 4 nights. I was very satisfied: the decor is lovely, the pool very pleasant, the breakfast very good.The staff was friendly and helpful.The rooms are small compared to most Dubai hotels, more on the scale of European hotels.Overall, though, it's a good choice.

Hotel is located a convenient location and room is quite. Breakfast is very good and with good selection of food and beverage. Staffs are nice with smile. Room is clean but honestly is a bit too basic.

Workers wearing the outfit of maintenance technicians (overhaul) are the first to meet u. I thought they are fixing something. 2-3 half circles isolated desks that took me a while to figure that they are really the reception, a very unwelcoming design despite the smiling faces of the receptionists . Hospital like room furniture ، totally white. A sofa that...

Great hotel with an excellent location. Positive check-in experience with a professional team that speak a good English. Room clean and well designed yet a bit tiny regardless the UAE standards. Bathroom open on the bedroom so there is not a real wall and locking door into the bath amenities and the main bedroom. (As a solo traveler it didn't...

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
