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

Not a bad hotel, but nothing exceptional about it. I expected more from a 4 star hotel in Dubai. The room size was standard, and not very spacious once the Xtra bed was added. 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

The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially Anara! The one thing was when I had check in with Gentlemen he did not describe me the facilities in the Hotel and I was... More

Alcoholic drinks expensive about £8 a pint of beer but that's Dubai prices. Staff helpful let us stay and use the... More

Great place for staying if you have a short trip to Dubai. Overall, the service was good, especially room service for breakfast was outstanding with reasonable prices. The only thing they need to improve is about the Concierge service that was a little bit difficult to guide the guests to go with.
