Clean and tidy, beds are ok. The hotel is not unbearably noisy despite of the Kuwait Road just outside. The breakfast and dinner options are not bad. The nightclub makes horrible noise at least for the rooms higher up in the building. Room service clearly has some delivery problems.

Very nice and clean hotel. The rooms very big and spacious, and the internet was fast. About 20 mins walk from Mall of Emirates and great rooftop bar/club. Staff very enthusiastic and helpful with all requests.

Reached hotel by 1.00pm and room was allotted by 1.45pm, but no complaints as the room was excellent suit room. Room is very spacious with all modern amenities. Hotel has a very good restaurant which serves very good Indian food. This is my second visit to this hotel and I enjoyed the stay

I was a bit reluctant booking in this hotel, however I can easily say it worth the price. A very spacious room, good location ( 10 minutes walking to the mall of emirates), clean rooms, Free parking, Free Wifi, 24/7 room service. The breakfast menu is for 49 AED, medium in term of varieties and quality. The room service didn't... More

We found the hotel on a whole to be very noisy, with a function going on till early hours of the morning. The location was good,... More

My friend and I stayed in the Grand Excelsior from April 6-14th and were extremely satisfied with our stay. The hotel itself is easily to identify because of its structure. Inside, the hotel looks grand, clean and impressive. On arrival, we were greeted by a team of friendly staff and offered an upgrade to a King Size Suite as there... More
