Meydan is off the track a bit, but it's only a short 10 minute taxi ride to downtown and only 15 minutes to the water. Taxi's are plentiful and relatively inexpensive. Hotel is great, rooms really well appointed and best of all, being off the track a bit, very peaceful and quiet! View in the morning is great with the... More

Just look at my review of Meydan Beach.... Some of that same experience can be said about the hotel. Breakfasts great food. Hostesses do not speak english well enough to say: Please have a seat or right this way.. or yo man sit yo' behind down. No. Because to say all that, you need proper english. Unfortunately there are two... More

For our first trip ever to Dubai and UAE, we were looking for something extra special. We choose the Meydan because we wanted to be able to explore the City, and relax later in quiet, comfortable surroundings with a nice pool and peaceful balcony, with nice views. This is exactly what we experienced at the Meydan. The Hotel was absolutely... More

The Meydan was the perfect hotel. The room was awesome and the scenic view of the track is simply amazing. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Dubai and don't care to be inside the city with the crazy traffic.

The Meydan is really out of the way for a visitor to Dubai, unless you want to go to the racetrack. However the taxi ride back into town is not all that expensive, and the rooms are true luxury. The only strange thing here is that the Front Office managers sends you notes re dress code for the hotel in... More

Meydaan is an excellent hotel. I was a bit worried about the hotel being out of the way however I think it was a blessing in disguise. Not only is it a relaxing break from the hustle and bustle but the hotel is awesome. The room was huge with excellent pool on the roof. The breakfast was great. The attached... More

Luxurious monstrosity of a hotel somewhat remote from anything business wise or recreation wise unless you like horse races, which apparently don't even run that frequently. They have a small exhibition area, an IMAX theatre, spas, several restaurants and of course an amazing racetrack. They have sporadic shuttles to the Dubai Mall and the train. I'm happy to have had...
