I was in Dubai for four days and I can say without any reservations that the Raffles hotel was absolutely perfect for my trip. The entire staff is extremely friendly and efficcient. The room was perfect, great pool and work out room, and just what you need for a great breakfast every day.
Excelllent across the board !

We stayed at raffles Dubai for 2 nights during our 6 day tour to UAE. The hotel lobby is amazing.
We booked the club room but had to wait about an hour for our room as they said our rooms weren’t ready.
Finely we got our room it was so big with pool view
Bathroom is very big with separate rain shower
Bed is so comfortable.
Club lounge is ok had a problem with internet, Wi-Fi not working
The breakfast was excellent in Azur waiter Mijanur Rahman was really polite and with excellent service
The Afternoon tea and evening canapés at the Raffles Club was very poor (can get better quality in 4 star hotel)
Dennis our butler was very helpful and very kind
I use the pool couple of time Mubbarak at pool offered us nice Ice tea and water
I think the hotel its self-need some updated furniture

Room Tip: ask for garden view, dont pay extra for club lounge its not worth it
