“Relatively good value, central location, but noisy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

We had one of the cheaper rooms, which was directly on the motorway - balcony literally felt like you could touch roof of the bus going past and noise levels were beyond what I could sleep in. Staff was very nice and moved us to another side, although all the cheaper rooms are on the low floors. Not sure if this place is still such good value if you start to pay up for higher priced rooms.

The room itself was spacious, well equipped and clean. Included a kitchenette which would be very handy for longer stays. Had everything necessary in there. Good for business / holiday stay. WiFi included, other facilities all good. Would definitely go back next time I'm in Dubai. Friendliest front desk staff in Dubai.

Room Tip: Lower floor rooms are noisy because right on the road.

Radisson Blu is in a excellent location. Sure it is a little tired but still very comfortable. Traveling extensively with two sall children. I would stay here any time oer a 5 star resort at the beach while in Dubai! A living room, well equipt kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a powder room offered space for all to relax and enjoy when we weren't out and about. It is a dry hotel, but nothing that a purchase at duty free when flying in doesn't sort out. It is within walking distance, well at this time of the year to the Walk where you are spoilt for choice for dining options. We did have room service one night and the children were too exhausted to dine out and were very pleased. A great time had and would recommend to anyone wishing to have a home away from home while exploring all that Dubai has to offer. Staff were professional and friendly.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

Extremely friendly staff ensured an early check in despite our extremely early arrival

Rooms on 1st to 3rd floors are to be avoided as the noise from the motorway outside (yes literally right outside the hotel) is deafening, particularly over a weekend so Thurs - Sat night

Small comfortable pool area which sadly only captured the sun until about 1.30 due to the positioning of the guest room tower

Great access to the Marina Metro station, easy walking distance of the Marina and The Walk.

This hotel is perfect for those looking for practical well located accommodation but it is far from a 'holiday' hotel. Glad we stayed here instead of the Media City Radisson, which is even more business focussed. I can see how the kitchen / catering appliances make this appealing to families and those travelling on business who prefer not to dine out every evening

Our upgrade to 2 bed, 3 bathroom apartment was much appreciated. Bathroom in original studio apartment was extremely tired and not really of the standard I expect from a Radisson property

Room Tip: to the back of the building, as high a floor as possible

I really liked my stay at Radisson Blu Residence in Dubai Marina. I was given an upgrade and got a very spacious, one bedroom apartment with full size, well equipped kitchen (good enough for a guy travelling alone). Hotel staff was very friendly, room service met my expectations. Unfortunately gym and spa (sauna, steam room) are quite small. One flaw - initially it really seems noisy if your room faces the highway, however eventually you get used to it and don't notice after a day or two. Hotel's location is pretty good - a few minutes walk from Dubai Marina Mall, metro station and the Marina Walk.
I'd definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing marina, not the highway

We stayed for a couple of weeks in an appartment together with the family. While the hotel is not brand new and located next to a busy freeway, I was very satisfied with our choice as we did not seek for luxury. The staff was extremly helpful and friendly, and the hotel is very tidy and clean. The appartment had plenty of space. The pool was warm and perfect for our children although any sunbathing must take place before lunch. The small gym was clean and it had everything you need. The location was very good, at least for our purposes.
