I meanwhile stayed in several hotels in Dubai but never before was my overall experience so perfect as it was in the Raffles. The rooms are great and really make the difference compared with other hotels. What I liked very much about it as well - especially when you are travelling for business reasons and don't have much time - everything was easy to manage. Light concept, air condition, functionality - all was just great.

However the most important fact that made my stay incomparable was the staff. The attentiveness and cordiality were outstanding. The swimming pool area is probably not as big as in other hotels such as the Grand Hyatt etc. - but there as well, the service and the atmosphere definitely make up for it!

I will definitely come back!

What a great hotel from the spotless lobby to the great suite rooms. I also found the services to be great. From the check in which included a review of the room with the desk clerk to make sure I knew everything about the room, to the great food in the restaurants I truly enjoyed the hotel. They have a great top floor club that is worth going to for more than and just the view. The hotel arranged a car tour of the city for us and that gave us enough time to see the city in the short time we had there. I would recommend this hotel to everyone for business or pleasure.

Room Tip: Make sure you either take the Bus tour or the private car tour of the city it is a great place to ex...

It was one of my best hotels experience in Dubai. From the first moment at the front desk you feel so welcomed with a warm smile on every one’s face. The room was neat, clean and well equipped with whatever you would need. Although my stay was so short but I’ve really enjoyed it and I’m sure I’ll repeat it again. Special thanks to Mr. Sai for his kindness and the personal touch which adds a great impression about the hotel.
