This Hotel is a superb stay on many levels. The rooms are not the biggest, but they have everything you will need and are very comfortable. The beds are fantastic. Within the room the TV has a system for ordering everything you could possibly need and it makes your stay very simple. Great staff top everything off.

Room spacious and very comfy, breakfast was good and available until 11, and the pool area although not... More

This is a very nice looking hotel in a good location close to Dubai Mall, but the staff let this place down. They manage to be both rude and unhelpful. The food in Le Serre is also not up to the standard required. Not worth the money

What a wonderful night with shisha & beer next to poolside. They still open during the ramadan and will give you rewarding day after fasting. Friendly staff(specially appreciate Adel for my shisha) and good food ^___^**

I stayed at Vida two nights ago for one night; I had to book a second room last minute and both Vida & AlManzil were fully booked. I was really tired and in a tight situation - and the Romanian night shift receptionist at Vida went of his way to help me out. He didn't have to - this was... More

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
