Ask to stay in the new wing of the hotel not the old. Breakfast was a mic of Arabic , Indian and western foods be prepared to... More

I stayed at this Hotel in December and was so impressed with the customer service and care. I returned again in June (am still staying there at the moment) and feel like I am staying in a different hotel! To start nobody helped us with our bags out of the car. We arrive at reception and tell them we are... More

My husband and I have enjoyed dozens of weekends at the Gulf Hotel. It feels like a home away from home, with the friendly staff and comfortable, well appointed rooms. The Gulf does special touches for all the festive occasions of the year, and with so many quality restaurants right in the hotel it makes for a very relaxing experience.... More

The Gulf is a solid five star resort with a classic elegance and a typical Arab opulence. I stayed at this hotel for five nights during the Routes Middle East and Africa summit. I was with my wife. We stayed in a grand deluxe room. It was big with a three seater couch, a king size bed, a big shower... More

Advertised as 5-star. Lobby and restaurants nice. Rooms and Apartments average. Even on floors designated Non-Smoking cigarette smoke has permeated all carpets, drapes, etc. The program supposedly including 19 international airlines with whom you are supposedly eligible to earn up to 1000 points is a farce. Stayed in an average hotel for 3 months. Chased the points for 4 months... More

Very high quality hotel. Stayed in a newly refurbished room, which was very tastefully decorated and well equipped. Service was good throughout - most notably in the conference rooms, restaurant and Sherlock Holmes bar (Jayne was an absolute star here). The food quality is superb. I only ate in the main buffer restaurant but the range and quality was exceptional.

Amazing! Besides the fact that this is a luxury place, the friendliness and the professionalism of the personnel makes me feel like ... home! No flaw has been noticed. The rooms are big enough and their bathroom ... wow!
