“Great hotel choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2012

Have just had two nights at the Qamardeen after much researching and indecision. What a great choice. The staff are exceptionally pleasant, and go out of their way to help, even allowing me an early checkin. Room is good, not terribly large, but as I travelling alone, it is more than adequate. Exceptionally clean. Hotel is in a great location. Walking distance to Dubai Mall and only a ten dirham taxi trip to metro which can take you anywhere. Highly recommended.

Stayed June 2012, travelled solo

We had three nights in the hotel on our first trip to Dubai. I would highly recommend anyone travelling as a couple who wants a great location to stay here. It is just a five-ten minute walk across the road to the Dubai Mall. You can walk under the road through their underground car parking system to get to the other side. Service at the hotel was wonderful, our room was available at 7am when we arrived (we were really lucky). The bottled water that was replaced daily came in handy. Especially with the weather being 40 degrees through our stay.

The breakfast in the restaurant was amazing. Something for everyone. The freshly cooked omelettes were to die for. The fresh fruit selection perfect as well as their rice cream. Was all too yummy, and being able to eat out beside the pool made it a very relaxing way to start the day. Was just perfect.

I imagine if you were travelling with a friend or similar the layout of the rooms with the bathroom would be off putting. I did appreciate that the toilet was kept private.

stay here for 4 nights and i have to say it was a great hotel. there are better hotels of course in Dubai but i could not fault this one. the service in the hotel is very good we had no problems at all.
the rooms are modern and a good size. the hotel is around 7 min walk from the burj Kalifa ( tallest building in the world ) and that is a must see and also the water fountains , its amazing. my advise is go to the address hotel to watch the water fountains at night , they have a bar on 63rd floor and you can have a drink and watch them while they have a piano man playing its a great place to see the building and fountains.
the hotel pool is clean and the setting is very nice. overall i couldn't fault this.
another tip i give you - if you are going to vist the 7 star hotel . we booked a dinner in that hotel and we got a 2011 whitle lemo to the hotel and trust me that is some else , its about 20 /30 min drive and the it ONLY COST 100 EURO RETURN trust me do it , the hotel will book the lemo for you.

The staff at Qamardeen go out of their way to ensure you are looked after but not hassled. The hotel itself is an oasis in the sometimes overbearing heat of Dubai and is only a short walk to Dubai Mall and the Burj Kalifa. Highly recommended!
