Great place to stay

i stayed here for 3 nights with my 13 year old son and it was a perfect choice. The room was spacious. All the staff were friendly an helpful. They let us check in at 9 am after a night flight which was very much appreciated. The breakfast by the pool was lovely. It is a 5 minute walk round the lake to the Dubai Mall and the burj kalifa. Getting taxis to other locations was easy and cheap.

Design Downtown Hotel

Pros: die zentrale Lage und das stilvolle Ambiente
Cons: Etwas ungeschickt angebracht ist die WC Rollen Halterung. Man verdreht sich fast den Rücken.
Location: siehe Erzählung zum Aufenthalt
Von der Ankunft bis zum Abreisetag alles top. Gute Organisation. Stilvolles Ambiente im ganzen Hotel. Cool draussen vor gigantischer Kulisse das Frühstück zu geniessen. Das Frühstückbuffet liess keine Wünsche offen. Cool integrierter Pool, mit Baldachin Liegen und mit Bar. In kurzer Zeit ist man zu Fuss im Herzen Dubais. Bei der Dubai Mall, den so zahlreichen Restaurants, dem Dubai Fountain, der Oper, dem Busbahnhof. Sehr zentrale und doch ruhige Lage. Ich würde das Hotel jederzeit wieder wählen.

Great hotel, I always stay here when in Dubai

Perfect staff, very friendly and can arrange everything for you from car rentals to whatever. Love the boutique feel of the place and the lounge area next to the pool. I've used it many times as my 'office' away from home. Location is great, next to the Burj and the Dubai Mall. Will go back there again soon. Cheers, S
