We stayed for three days at Qamardeen Hotel and were impressed with its seamless service. Because our flight landed close to midnight we have arranged for a transfer to the hotel in advance (by email). This went off without a hitch and after a smooth check in we were packed off to bed with a minimum of fuss.
Similarly, when we enquired about a desert safari the next day and found that the company we previously used was fully booked, they immediately suggested an alternative (at a significantly lower cost) and made all the arrangements. This turned out even better than our previous outing.
Obviously we were never going to drag pool towels with us halfway around the world. This was however not a problem, the lifeguard had a whole stack readily at hand. A taxi to the Dubai Mall? Not necessary - they give us directions and a short, leisurely stroll later we were there. There is a very handy shortcut through the grounds of The Palace Hotel and Souk al Bahar that limits walking out in the open to less than 200 meters.
Qamardeen Hotel is an excellent base to explore Dubai from. It is reasonably priced and little ones get to stay for free should they share the existing bedding. Above all it offers excellent service.
