My second stay at this hotel. Really friendly staff and very good service. Food is really good especially at the Prego restaurant. The conference facilities are also good with really friendly staff in every area of the hotel. Would recommend to anyone staying in Dubai. Fantastic hotel.

Excellent hotel with excellent restaurants but not really for families as not much outside area. Very centrally located and hotel has high standards which i hope they maintain. Staff were extremely friendly and nice but it is the quality overall that stands out.

Extremely good hotel, if a little crowded and noisy at times. Excellent staff - all very friendly and helpful. Good gym and outdoor pool. Breakfast buffet extensive and very good, and restaurant very efficient. Prego's italian restaurant is excellent, if pricey, and Nelson's pub serves very good bar food. Downside is the place gets very smokey when it's busy. Bedrooms... More

The Media Rotana in Dubai is set a little distance away from the main tourist and shopping areas, so you need taxis to get around. But when the temperature is 42 degrees and over, as it was at the beginning of September, the excuse of needing a taxi to take you to the door of the restaurant or shopping mall,... More

Great views of the Burj Al Arab, fantastic food - desserts especially - and they have a British night :o) Swimming pool is great and having a bar just yards away - with Waiter service - makes it perfect!
