Quiet relaxation

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

In March 2007 I enjoyed a wonderful 4 night stay at this 5* Dubai hotel. Located within easy reach of Dubai International Airport, the hotel offers a free shuttle service between the airport and hotel which takes approximately 15 - 30 minutes depending on prevalent traffic conditions (remember, Dubai has one of the longest rush hours in the world). Travelling from the UK meant an early arrival in Dubai but the hotel was able to securely store my luggage which allowed me to venture out and explore some of Dubai before returning to the hotel to actually check in.

Rooms are well proportioned and have good facilities including satellite TV, mini bar, in room safe, etc. The en-suite bathroom was provided with a good selection of toiletries.

Breakfast is included in the room rate and is taken in the La Cite Restaurant. Everything a person could want is on offer from fresh fruit, cereals, hot buffet items (both Arabic and American style), pastries, etc.

Unique Quality: The hotel is directly attached to the Deira City Centre shopping mall for those looking to spend, spend, spend!

The rate I have quoted on this tip is the standard rack rate. I was lucky to get this room for GBP75 a night on the www.hotels.com website and I would certainly recommend shopping around for the bargain.

Directions: Just e-mail the hotel to arrange free airport shuttle

The main attraction of this hotel to me was the Deira City Centre. The mall is really huge and it took me more than 3 days to really discover the mall. Good selection of shops; not too expensive like Wafi or Burjuman, various food courts offering an international cuisine and the generally pleasant ambience of the place. It was so convenient to pop in and out of the hotel to the mall particularly when I had a baby in tow. It saved me on my transportation and meals expenses.
The hotel staff was very courteous and generally aim to please. Service was prompt and friendly. Great place to stay in Dubai.

Unique Quality: The location of the hotel to the biggest mall in the middle east is the star quality. However the hotel has the normal city view, in this case you can spot the nearby airport !! Try not to get the rooms facing the roof of the huge shopping mall. You are then better off closing the curtains!

Directions: 5 minutes from the airport & adjacent to Deira City Centre
