It's close to the airport, shaped like a pyramid and attached to Waffi mall. The decor is Egyptian-themed, with plenty of Pharoah carvings in case you didn't quite get the plot. The staff are professional, consistent, eager to please and clearly well-trained. The rooms are spacious and the buffet breakfast generous. The hotel is perfect if you have a long...

We stayed in the Dubai Raffles for three nights on the way back form Australia.

Stuff in Solo were extremely helpful and...

I stayed here for a couple of nights, while heading back to Boston from Asia. The hotel is beautiful. I was upgraded - my room was spacious and comfortable. The staff all went out of their way. For example, the concierge told me about a specific store in the attached mall to buy pistachios as gifts. The breakfast buffet had...

Raffles Dubai was chosen for our 3 nights in Dubai pre-cruise over many fabulous properties. From over seas, one is confounded with the choices as Dubai has so many luxury properties, some on the beach, some at the Burj Kalif, etc. Where to book? Settling of Raffles because we loved Raffles Singapore, we were fully anticipating excellence. Staying on the...

Classy hotel with very spacious and beautifully decorated rooms. Service is as good as it gets and staff is very friendly. Good location close to the airport. This is obviously not a cheap option, but still worth the price.
