There is nothing special to say about this hotel, everything is done in a good standard and when you are between flights at T3 this is a great choice. The staff is very polite, food is decent, room is wide and comfortable, we even had a massage chair that we fought for between ourselves! :) if you are coming from... More

We had a 11 hour layover. We arrived at about 22:30. Check in was quick. There was free wifi in the room. The airport is so busy it is quite stressful, so it was nice to have our own space to relax in. The room and bathroom were of a good size, clean and modern. The beds were comfortable. I... More

I’ve stayed in this hotel a few times while waiting overnight for a connecting flight in terminal 3 - the last time in November 2013. It’s expensive but worth it to get extra sleep time with not having to go through customs/wait on hotel transfers etc. to a hotel outside the airport. The room and bathroom are clean and spacious...

Half way through 25 hours of flying I am just about going to be happy with any hotel room that has a shower and a bed. This place however was pushing even those limits. The entire room was grubby, the bathroom grimy. The air conditioning is loud, but not quite loud enough to drown out the airport announcements that continue... More

On a ten hour layover in Dubai on my way back to work I was told about this facility. Take the lift from the Concourse up to the 5th Floor. Locate the G Force Health Club, and give the attendant USD 14. He / She will take you through into the Shower area, where you can freshen up for 45... More

The terminal hotel at the Dubai International Airport is a godsend if you have a long layover between equally long flights. Clean, well-appointed, super efficient staff, quiet. Exactly what you need - a warm shower and a comfortable bed to help make it through the next leg of the journey. Nothing more, nothing less.

I booked this hotel based on the reviews I read here on tripadvisor. I was sorely disappointed. I arrived into Dubai late in the evening on a flight from India and was met by someone from the hotel. This was great, but when I arrived at the check in counter they led me to, I was told my room was... More

Fabulous service. we were met as we got off the shuttle and assisted through customs. quick check in meant we got the maximum amount of sleep we could on our stop over. The room was beautiful with the softest sheets and pillows I have ever had. I could have slept for days.
