We arrived at 6am after a 14 hour flight and were offered a room straight away, although we had to pay a little extra for early check in,... More

The hotel is phenomenal. From the second we walked in to the second we left the hotel, everything was perfect. The reception staff are unbelievably friendly and smiley. The rooms are spotless with very cool design. The Italian restaurant was delicious. My only issue was with the super smart remote control and its cursor :)

We stayed for a opulent of nights on our way from the UK to the Maldives. Vids was a great choice recommended by Emirates ... Contemporary style ... Clean & quiet room ... Professional & friendly staff. Short walk to the Dubai Mall, fountains & the Burg Khalifa ... might not suit families / less mobile as you need to... More

Very noisy, there is a mosque at 30 metres from the hotel, and you can hear the prayer call at 4am in the morning. The prayer call is very loud. I will advice to look for a quiet area otherwise you will not be able to sleep properly.

Vida Downtown is a four star hotel, but it comes nothing short of a service of a 5 star. The staff cannot be more kind, friendly and warm and always helpful. It's a very cosy hotel, mainly for business I think, but I was on holiday with my boyfriend and really liked it. They have a swimming pool with cabanas... More
