I recommend this hotel because its price is reasonable compared to its service. The breakfast was good. it contained international food for different tastes. I liked it. The room service and housekeeping was satisfactory. The staff were truely kind and helpful. They always wear a big smile on their face and greet you in every situation. The lavatory was good.
The hotel has a unique view of Burj Khalifa and Emirates towers. It is few steps away from the metro station of Financial Center. There are many restaurants around the hotel.
The lobby was a little small with few numbers of furniture.
Unique Quality: The view and easy access to metro station
Directions: Bur Dubai. This district is the modern part of dubai.
hi, thanks in advanced for your answers myself and my teanage son will be coming to dubai for 2 weeks,we are stating at the rose rayhaan i would like some advice on taxis please to the hotel,could you tell me the amount i should be paying from the dubia airport please to the hotel? thanks
the second question is, are we alowed to take photographs of trains?as my son is a train spotter big time!,and are there any places to visit on a train?, also iv read something about the metro travel and water taxis where do thee go please? my son is 17 years old.thanks julie & callum
At a guess, the taxi would be around AED45-AED50 - I believe the taxi automatically puts on AED20 from the airport as a starting fare (unless it has changed recently). Your son and yourself could take the new metro train - if you sit in the Gold Section you will have a view of the very front of the train (as they are driver-less trains), so he could get some nice pics or a short video. I did a short video when the metro had just opened if you want to take a look: www.youtube.com/watch?v=55eCH84JqS0
For water taxis (or abras as they are known here) go down to the Bur Dubai Abra station and go over to visit the Gold/Spice Souq (you can use the card that you used for the train on the abras too) - or you could go from the Gold Souq side back to Bur Dubai. The Bur Dubai station is close to Dubai Museum. You can also check out where the metro train goes/fares from this site: http://dubaimetro.eu/
Have a great time.
I agree, with the AED20 surcharge for airport taxis it should be about AED40-50. The taxis are metered by the way.
There are no 'trains' here, only the Metro which is an over/underground electric rail system (like the London Underground or the Paris Metro). Photos of and in the trains are allowed, but do not take photos of people (local Emirati ladies in particular).
The system is partially open and the trains run to places like Ibn Battuta Mall, Mall of the Emirates, various places in the city itslef including the old part near the souks and the Creek.
We have water taxis (just introduced) and also the abras, which are little traditional wooden ferries that cross the Creek. Great fun and only AED1 each way.
Details of all the transport on my Dubai tips pages.
Water Taxi is 4 AED and airconditioned but they dont serve chilled drink on the boad, what a pitty :-)
hi thanks very much for all your answers.my comp has been down
