I enjoyed the hotel and have stayed there previously four or five times. I think that the hotel should allow bottles of water to guests - I think they used to do this but if this was not the case it is so hot in Dubai and you need water. There is no alternative close to the hotel to purchase... More

This review is based on the top floor suite which was a free upgrade from a deluxe. Hotel appears very popular with Asian business types, and this was reflected in the restaurant and some breakfast options. Front desk professional. Wide range of breakfast options, although I found the quality of some a bit average. Excellent to-order omelettes. Coffee ok (automated... More

Been there early May in attending a trade show and it would be my 9th visits at Riviera and staff have been consistently attentive & friendly. Whilst the hotel style may be classical, the room is kept well maintained & clean, breakfasts varied & delicious (love the fresh water melon juice) and services always personable & consistent. No hesitation to... More

This is my second stay at the hotel & I was left disappointed after this visit. We booked and paid for 2 deluxe creek rooms and were checked into 2 standard creek rooms. If you have paid for deluxe (@ AUD$100/night more) being assigned standard rooms is just not acceptable. Despite complaining to the front desk we spent our first... More

On the Creek. Fascinating to see the local people going about their work of loading the dhows that travel all through the Gulf delivering every conceivable thing. Hotel clean and obliging. Some rooms have great views so request a river view if you can. Someone from the hotel met us at the airport and they could not have been more... More

Very pleased with stay. Wonderful helpful front desk staff-- even charged my phone when my charger stopped working. Surprised at the quality and choice of foods at breakfast buffet. Wifi included in rooms and in public areas-contrary to some listings which wrongly list it as requiring a surcharge. Very close to public transportation - metro, Abras and according to Red... More

Stunning view, especially at night with all the lights. Walking distance from souks and markets. Enjoy all the activities and the very old boats offloading goods. Streetfood was good. Very hot during the day, busses and taxi available. Room was clean and had a airconditioner. You can visit all the tourist sites from this hotel without any hassle.
