Clean, comfort, quiet, large rooms, connecting by balcony, view of track (but not the season), reasonable price, friendly staff, child friendly. Only negative is the parking at night, it's not well lit by elevators.

We treated ourselves to a staycation in Dubai one weekend, and chose The Meydan, away from the hustle and bustle that life in Dubai usually brings. We arrived at about lunch time on Friday, and on entering the hotel the first impression is that it is similar to an modern airport, with a large glass façade and floor to ceiling... More

I went several times to Dubai and mainly spent time in hotels at Jumeirah district. The Meydan was a nice experience and being far from the sea is not an issue as they have a private beach with shuttle service. Very convenient if you want to shop at Dubail Mall. It was a 5 days stay just after Xmas, the... More

After vacating our long-term apartment in Dubai, we needed to stay over for an extra couple days, before returning to the UK and decided to treat ourselves to a nice hotel. As there were no race meetings at the time, we were able to stay at the Meydan Hotel, at around the same cost as a 4-star hotel in downtown... More

My third stay was a bit different from 2 previous ones. More noisy due to influx of GCC families who arrived for Eid to Dubai. So in the future avoid Eid holidays and week after (Ramadan is fine, very quiet). Rooms are grandiose (57sq m), gorgeous bathroom with huge window, plenty of storage (separate utility room for luggage & more... More

For the price that I paid (1100 AED per night without breakfast) I expected better standards at a 5 star hotel in Dubai. When I arrived there was no one to open the door or pick up the luggage (they came 2 minutes later), The check-in and check out process was fast. The room is medium size with a balcony.... More

As you probably know already, the Meydan hosts the dubai world cup every year. I've been to a lot of horse races but dubai steals the cake. The rooms are incredible, the showers divine, the room service delectable. Having front row seats to the races from the comfort of our balcony was also quite a perk. It may be a... More

We arrived at 5am at the hotel totally jet lagged. As a lady I was exhausted.. The hotel were excellent and booked us straight into our room. The reception was all good but some people did not master the English language... As an actress I had to explain very clearly sometimes, but this was no problem. The rooms a little... More

The rooms at Meydan are simply excellent! Boasting high class amenities with a feel like home. The jacuzzi in the bathroom is to die for. The racecourse view is kinda cool too! Although I wish the staff at the reception were a little more friendly and hospitable - they seemed to be more interested in assisting "other" nationalities first.
