Words can't describe this luxurious hotel but a little bit expensive ... The whole nearby area deserves exploring; the mall and of course IKEA. One drawback is that Dubai Metro is not accessible from this area but buses and taxi are available. I quite sure you will not regret it... Enjoy it

I would like to highlight just how good the Club Lounge is at this Interconti. Every member of the Club team (without exception) are courteous, professional and super-helpful - of special mention were Gayan, Tashriek, Maryam, Josephine, Beverly and Pooja. The food is excellent and beautifully presented. Please keep on doing what you do!

Just returned from a "girls" long weekend. What an amazing experience thanks to the super-amazing focus on customer experience.

A convenient hotel with a beautiful view. Executive rooms are vast. Perfect combination. The hotel is adjacent to one of the best malls in Dubai where u can find Hard Rock Cafe... Visit The Belgium cafe and the Hisham lounge.... The only inconvenience is that the hotel is far from down town Dubai and jumairah ( around 25 minutes)
