This hotel is inside the Dubai airport and a really good option if you have a long layover (7+ hours). There are sleep cubes by the hour in DXB if you have a shorter layover. After a longhaul flight and more travel the next day, it’s nice to be able to have a shower and a proper sleep in a... More

The location Airside of this hotel makes a huge difference if all you want is a rest in a fabulous bed with lovely shower, tea and coffee, fruit, and water in the room. It was unfortunate that our flight was delayed which cut short our stopover but I would certainly extend the stopover time to be able to enjoy the... More

This hotel is great if you have a long transit time at Dubai International Airport. It's a hassle to check in and out of the hotel if you need to go OUTSIDE the airport - but if you're spending your layover inside the airport, then this is great! Hotel staff meet you at your gate to usher you to the... More

Good option for making the most of a long transit time. It is also worth the stay just to break up long journeys. We had a14 hour flight from Melbourne to Dubai, refuelling at Kuala Lumpur. We deliberatley chose an 18 hour transit in Dubai before flying on the Glasgow. This allowed us to have time to relax and sleep... More

We used this hotel for a short stop over, giving us a hot shower and a comfortable bed, which the cheaper lounges in the airport can't always guarantee due to traffic flow of people. Because we had a relatively short stay I asked for someone to meet us at the gate as it was our first time in the airport... More

Very comfortable way to connect via Dubai on long haul flights between Europe and Asia, the hotel staff expect you at your arrival gate and takes you to the right concourse - it is bait difficult to find your way after a long flight and being sleepy, so it is very nice, quick check in, quick check out, the reception...

If you're able to find this place, the bed is comfortable, the rooms are well lit and there is free WIFI. But finding it is the trick. Very confusing airport with poor signs. If you're layover is not too long, you might want to choose to just hang out in the airport on a comfortable chair. The hotel is expensive... More

A great stay for a 9 hour layover and worth the cost. While making my booking though I could not find out which Concourse A or B to pick even though Emirates told me I was arriving into Terminal 3 (all their flights go in and out of T3) so I chose Terminal A and of course it was the... More

Knowing we had 20 hours in Dubai on our return we checked and rechecked hotel possibilities in the Dubai Airport. All we really wanted was to take a shower before we got back on the plane after a day of sight-seeing in Dubai. We had been repeatedly told that the Dubai International Hotel would rent rooms for a couple of... More
