I stayed here whilst travelling alone for 3 nights on a stopover, and found the hotel to be perfect for this purpose. The room was spotless and very spacious, wifi worked perfectly. The staff were very helpful and friendly, always quick to respond to any queries and help with my plans. I would definitely stay here again, but would probably... More

Nice place, staff good and great location for exploring local area. Arrived late at night, no booking and opted for option with 1pm checkout which was great. 1 down side was they have no bar or alcohol in mini bar which I felt like after a long flight. Stayed in room facing car park, aircon a bit noisy, but overall... More

The Riviera is not the fanciest hotel in Dubai, but may well be among the most comfortable. I had occasion to be there for an extended period, and very quickly felt I had become part of the family. The staff are lovely, and go out of their way to help. The location too is great, being not too far from... More

We spent three nights at this hotel. Our only real negative was that we had arranged with the hotel for airport pick up but despite waiting for some time we were not able to locate our driver and had to take a taxi to the hotel. However, once we reached the hotel we were quite happy with our Creekside Room.... More

We arrived early in the morning and the room was not ready so we went for a walk for an hour and when we returned our room was available and we had been upgraded to a creek view room. The room was very comfortable with a great view. Breakfast was excellent. I thought the area the hotel was in was... More

We arrived at the hotel during the early hours of the morning, but no problems our room was already for us. This is about the 5th time we have stayed at the Riviera Hotel and have never been disappointed. We always ask for a Creek view room as it is quite an experience looking out at all the activity that... More

We arrived very early in the morning and our room obviously was not ready but the staff were so helpful and friendly. We stored our luggage and went out for the day. When we returned we were advised we were upgraded from a Souk view room to a Creek room. It was a lovely room with wonderful views. Breakfast was... More

Nice, clean hotel with the view of the Creek where we were staying. 2 min to the metro and the Big Bus stop just opposite the road which is very convenient. Excellent varieties for breakfast and especially very welcoming since we have being touring Europe for the past 4 weeks and missed asian food. The hotel even try to make... More

We visited Dubai in a March 2014 and we are pleased we opted for this hotel. When you make a decision to go to Dubai you have to decide on what you want out of your city visit. If you want a hotel which is isolated from history or the beach this is not for you. We wanted a hotel... More

The Riviera Hotel in Dubai has recently been remodeled so the rooms are very nice. Some face the Dubai Creek. The location is walking distance to gold and spice markets as well as the bus stop for the Big Red Bus (hop-on/hop-off). The staff could not have been more accommodating. The helped me set up a private tour to Abu... More
