Romatic luxury

The hotel and it's surroundings are absolutely sumptuous and the staff could not be more attentive and helpful. My stay was a truly delightful experience from start to finish.

A Palace with a view

This is a beautiful hotel with a fantastic view overlooking the Burj Khalifa. Service was great and an outside table at the Thiptara restaurant was ideal to watch the splendour of the Dubai Fountains. Our room was huge (a diplomatic suite - 105sqm) and very comfortable. The hotel is close to the Dubai mall with its upmarket shops. While the pool and the sunbeds were luxurious, the pool area is quite small and there aren't that many sunbeds. If you want to sunbathe every day until teatime you would be better off at one of the resort hotels like the Atlantis or Westin Mina Seyahi. However if you are looking for luxury where you can do a bit of sightseeing, shopping and sunbathing this is an ideal hotel for you. We would definitely go back.

Ein sehr schönes Hotel im arabischen Stil, top gelegen, super Service. Frühstück sehr empfehlenswert, auch die verschiedenen Buffets am Abend. Outdoor-Konzerte bei der Oper sind auch bei geschlossener Tür gut hörbar.

Sehr schönes Hotel! Sehr sauber!

Cons: Vielleicht jemand der Deutsch spricht! Und die Infos auch auf Deutsch!
Location: In der nähe der Shopping Mall
Wir waren früh Morges schon im Hotel, und konnten gleich aufs Zimmer, auch am letzten Tag, unser Flug ging erst am Nachmittag und wir wurden gefragt bis wann wir das Zimmer brauchen! Das Frühstück ist der Hammer!!!

Guter Service, tolle Zimmer

Wir wurden sehr freundlich empfangen und konnten sogar das Frühstück am Anreisetag 10 Uhr nehmen, da wir die Abreise in der Nacht hatten und somit das letzte Frühstück nicht hätten nehmen können. Auch war das Zimmer sehr schnell bereits, sodass wir bereits um 11 Uhr das Zimmer beziehen konnten. Wir haben dann auch eine Desert Tour via dem Hotel gebucht, wo man sehr kompetent beraten wird und man sich Zeit für die Gäste nimmt. In allem super Hotel. Es ist sehr zentral zur Mall und vielen Restaurants gelegen .. Gerne wieder!
