We would like to thank the hotel management and staff for the way we were treated during our stay. We stayed on Saturday 25th July. As we were leaving on the 27th at 2.45 am we asked to use your luggage store for a full day which was acceptable to you. We had a dinner appointment and came back to... More

Excellent stay - great location and very attentive service. Tahir in reception was amazing. They looked after us through the 3 days and did all the little things right. Courtyard for shisha is a must visit.

The Manzil is a true beautiful luxury hotel. It is in walking distance to the Dubai Mall and many restaurants. I was in the city for business and had a convention in downtown. The taxi was not too bad every morning. It was only 15 minutes from the hotel. The breakfast was great every morning, and had many vegan options... More

We stayed at the manzil for two nights. The room, the decor, the ambience was all great. The staff are professional and polite...very helpful and you can see they try really hard to make your experience pleasant. Walkable distance to the Dubai shopping mall. Overall a great experience, this hotel sets the standard for customer experience. I'll stay there again.

Good hotel at the downtown very close to Dubai Mall and to the attarctions at Downtown of Dubai. The hotel is within a walking distance from the attractions and it has a very reasonable service. Quality of rooms is satisfactory. They have a shuttle bus service but wthin very limited time and locations.

This is an excellent hotel to stay at. Staff is friendly and rooms are of good quality. It's within walking distance from numerous restaurants and the Dubai mall. A very good option when visiting Dubai.

I loved staying at this hotel. Every time I visit Dubai I stay in a different hotel, and I would definitely stay in this one again. The hotel is newly renovated, and I believe they're still working on some renovations as we heard some drilling noises in the morning (thankfully not at an obscene hour). The hotel is literally across... More

Cold shower, warm fridge, out of sync TV. Is it too much to ask that things actually work? I'm so sick of people in and out of the room to try to fix the poor quality appliances. This has not been a happy stay and we will not be back.

The Hotel is across the street of Dubai Mall (Souk El Bahar Entrance). The Area is a Middle East typical architecture which is quite original (considering most of Dubai city is sky scrapers). From the rooms (high floors), you can enjoy the view on Burj Khalifa. The surroundings whether on the main street or right next to the hotels, you'll... 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.
