We used this hotel as a stopover en route to Europe. We checked in very early off a 6.00am flight and had immediate access to our room - upgraded to a diplomatic suite which was fabulous. The hotel is designed around an Egyptian theme with large statues, carved friezes, lots of marble. The whole effect is stunning. The location is convenient for the airport and although the adjoining Wafi mall is nothing special it is only a cheap cab ride to the larger malls such as Dubai mall 10 minutes away. In July the weather is far too warm to be walking around outside, so this is no problem.

We found the Club Lounge to be great value. The afternoon tea and complimentary drinks and nibbles before dinner almost made dinner itself unnecessary! The hotel staff were friendly and helpful - the same great service standards we have found at all the hotels we've stayed at in Dubai in fact.

No negatives at all, and definitely marked for a return trip.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for Club Lounge membership

Had a FANTASTIC two nights at Raffles on a trip home. My second stay in Dubai, this is the hotel to stay in. Simply beautiful staff that are so kind, thoughtful and attentive (many knew my name but I hadnt met them before). Massive rooms, bathrooms and terraces. Food simply excellent (gold package highly recommended for brekkie, afternoon tea, fab wine and eve canapes). Good rooftop pool (open to 10pm hurray although i missed my early morning swim as it only opened at 6.30am but really no issue) with great free jacuzzi, steam and sauna (not sure when youd want thatin duabi!). All in all one of THE best hotels ive stayed in for a long time. Carre Four supermarket is next door in the WADI mall for those that love getting more drinks etc. Also a small M&S for the brits! For those interested in comparisons, i stayed first of all at the Royal Mirage One and Only. Raffles is by far the superior hotel in every sense apart from location. Royal Mirage is on the beach and I did PLENTY of early morning swims and walks on the beach. Raffles is only a AED30 trip to the beach but for those addicted to pools (theres a few at RM) and beachtime, RM is far preferable to raffles. To sum it up, a long stay, stay at Royal Mirage. Sort stay of 2-3 days Raffles by far. Enjoy...they are both lovely hotels.

My family enjoyed a stopover at Raffles Dubai on the way to Europe and we couldn't fault it. The decor is expensive and super stylish and the staff were extremely accommodating. They made up the couches into beds for our 2 children and all with a smile. The breakfast was the best we have had anywhere in our travels - and the price was included in our very reasonable stopover deal. The hotel is close to the airport so ideal for a short stopover and also has a shopping centre attached to it - nothing compared to Mall of Emirates though. The wonderful pool was almost deserted when we were there in high summer but the staff kept us supplied with free ice tea and cold water and were exceptional in their service.

Room Tip: As there were no non-smoking rooms available when we arrived, we offered to pay for an upgrade and were given a free upgrade to a room on the Club level floor. The view was a little disappointing as it looked back towards the airport.

Raffles was simply superb. staff were super attentive & helpful the facilities 2nd to none. A great pool which is not always the case in Dubai and the simple touches like free bottles of water & wifi in room just added to the overall experience.

Would return to this hotel with no hesitation !!
