Sofitel Hotel

by hhenry

Hi all,

Am looking at booking a week in the Sofitel Hotel, Dubai in July. Would anyone recommend staying here?

RE: Sofitel Hotel

by AbuDhabi

If you mean Sofitel City Centre Hotel, I think it is one of the tourists’ favorite hotels. People prefer it because it is adjacent to the famous City Centre shopping mall.

Good Luck

RE: Sofitel Hotel

by JessH

Yes, the sofitel is ok. You are (as previously mentioned) attached to the City Centre Mall. Check this link (copy & paste) for details:

You are also close to Dubai airport, the Creek, and the Gold & Spice Souk.
Beaches, however, are miles away.

July is going to be HOT! Make sure the airconditioning in your room is working properly and you'll survive :-)))

All the best!
Jess ('c',)

it's a good 5 star hotel and as the others said, it's in an OK location. It's not walking distance to anything except the Deira City Centre, but then in July you can't walk far anyway!
Plenty of taxis are always at the hotel or the mall, so getting around is easy.

Many thanks for all your replies - it's been a big help. Think I'm going to book it - LOVE the idea of being that close to a shopping mall!. Can't wait to go!

Just one things about the Sofitel. Its a fine hotel. However if you are on business and arrive on a late night flight, as i did, you will not be able to get your suits pressed as the laundry closes at 2200 hours. You may need to keep that in mind. I had a meeting early next day and had to press my suit myself. And the hotel was kind enough to lend me an iron and board.


Apple Computers in Dubai

by mpkay79

I've been planning to buy an Apple Computer (the iMac) but the prices seem to be way above international prices. Even the Gitex offers are at a premium.

Does anyone know a good Apple Computer's dealer in Dubai?

If not, does anyone know if there is any import duty if a friend of mine gets me one from the US?

Re: "Lead kindly light"

Hi there,
Well no idea about the gear shop. But inside Deira City Center there is a big supermarket called Carrefour. They have very powerful and professional Flashlights from MAGLITE which is an American brand.
They may be as good as one you are looking for.
Take care.

Travel Tips for Dubai

Emirates - a great way to fly

by ocicat

The prices we found for Emirates airlines were excellent, several hundred dollars below other quotes. The seats were very comfortable, with a 2 - 4 - 2 layout in the economy section. In flight entertainment was outstanding. Each seat is equiped with it's own screen for viewing movies, television or games. There is also a huge variety of music to chose from. Meals were actually very good, with huge portions served.

I had only two complaints.

First is that almost the entire flight from New York City to Dubai (and back) were spent with the cabin lights off. It felt like we were flying in a cave.

Second is that the weight allowance for checked bags is on 20 kgs (44 pounds)!! That's not much! Overweight charge up to 70 pounds is $25 per overweight bag.

Truly Elite dining - "oozing" pure Romance...

by JessH about EAU ZONE

Licensed - serves alcoholic beverages.

The "home" of this restaurant, the One & Only Royal Mirage Hotel, isn't necessarily my favourite hotel in town. It's another overly-pretentious resort justifying its high prices not with great service, but simply with great interior design. Nevertheless, I was intrigued by the look of the Eau Zone restaurant and simply had to try it for our next anniversary dinner.
We walked across the wooden jetty to Eau Zone, candlelight reflecting off the still water on either side. This place positively oozes romance, from the hushed conversations to the mesmerizing lounge music to the flickering candles.

We had beaten the anticipated but surprisingly non-existent traffic jam and arrived early, so we settled down near the bar with some aperitifs, fantastic crab-rolls & small breads. I stuck to juice as the designated driver of the evening, and John was now enjoying his 2nd glass of Pinot Grigio. After a short wait we were guided to our table... wooden, seemingly floating decks in a crystal-blue pool of water.

As in most romantic restaurants, lighting is held very low and this can make it almost impossible to decipher the menu. But promptly with the menu cards we were given a small hand-held light.

As I was pondering the appetizer menu I felt some unwanted guests nibbling at my calves... just as I had resigned myself to being eaten alive during what was supposed to be a romantic meal for me - and not the bloodsucking insects - the smiling waiter came floating over to our table, handing me a green bottle: "Madame, some mosquito repellent for you?"

That was it; They had won us over! And so quickly! We had planned to resist this place! There are plenty of 5-star hotels with fancy restaurants in Dubai, but rarely do you have the pleasure of experiencing true 5-star SERVICE as well. The menu offers mostly International cuisine with an Asian kick, and even the simplest sounding dishes are presented with an enigmatic twist.

For starters I opted for the scallops (85 Dirhams), which were perfectly grilled & delicious. John enjoyed the Alaskan Crab spring rolls and seemed close to tears when the last one was gone. As a main course I ordered the Miso-Glazed Halibut (140 Dirhams), which simply melted on my tongue. John splashed-out & ordered the whole Lobster (230 Dirhams) which he happily munched-on. Throughout dinner service was attentive but not over-done.
I am a huge fan of fish and seafood and can honestly say that Eau Zone neither overcooked nor over spiced (both sacrileges with good seafood!) any of our dishes
Meals here are not cheap and the portions could have been slightly less "French-sized" (I mean, they were a bit small ;-) but in the end the excellent service and stunning surroundings are well worth paying for.
(did I mention that Eau Zone was voted one of the "Most Romantic Restaurants" in the 2008 TimeOutDubai Guide?)

TIP --> Eau Zone truly is a cut-above your usual Dubai eatery, so RESERVATIONS are essential.

Opening Hours:
12noon-03.30pm and 07:00pm-11.30pm daily.
