We booked two rooms for 5 nights ... we changed our booking the next morning and went to another hotel (Traders). It was the best decision we took. The location of the hotel was great for our business trip in deira. The rooms were very small compared to what we expected from a 4* hotel. For those that don’t know... More

A few words to sum up our experience... Rude reception staff Dirty rooms Everywhere stinks of smoke Very tired looking In summary, there are better places to stay in Dubai. Don't settle for this. We have seen much nicer hotels during our stay in Dubai, and think this hotel needs some serious work to compete.

After wasting the first 90 mins of my holiday, we gave up went for... More

The Carlton Tower seems like a time stop from a bye gone era. In its heyday the hotel would have been excellent and certainly the front entrance promises the same. Excellent and friendly customer service throughout. The restaurant area is open and can be viewed from the lobby, although I never ate there. I had a room with twin singles... More

My wife and I had a ninth-floor room at the Carlton Tower during March. The hotel overall was good but perhaps a little tired in places and in need of a bit of TLC. We were met at the airport by the hotel transport which efficiently took us the short distance to the hotel. The Carlton Tower is located on... More

The hotel is located in a quite area over the Dubai Creek. Our room was big, clean and we liked it. The breakfast was good and the restaurant's supervisor (an Indian man) was very cheerful and we were welcomed very warmly by him everyday. There's this man called Joseph who was really good and upgraded us to a bigger room... More

Stayed here 5 nights last week - check-in at 3am was faultless. Our room overlooked pool and creek - fabulous view. Location cannot be faulted - close to metro, small mini markets and souks. There is noise every night from the club in the hotel - it does grate a bit - and lasts well into the night. All of... More
