I have been a frequent guest at Al Manzil Hotel since 2007. But this was my first visit since January, and I was highly impressed with the hotel's new renovations. The combination of eclectic arabesque interior designs, user friendly smart screens in the guest rooms, the hotel's new environmentally friendly direction, the ideal location on the Sheikh Zayed Boulevard, as...

Popped into the now called Manzil Hotel after undergoing refurbishment and ask: what have they done to the beautiful and inviting lobby cafe and shisha courtyard? Now feels cold and uninviting. After waiting for it to re-open we were truly disappointed. We have regularly visited for dinner / shisha and coffee but feel the new decor and feel will not... More

A traveller to Dubai since 2006. In a town that is littered with glittering and shiny hotels, Al Manzil is as a diamond in the desert. I stumbled across it some years ago and have always returned - often alone or with family/friends. As a weary traveller entering the hotel at any time of the day or night, a wave... More

I heard it opened up after several months of renovation so decided to stop by last night and it was WOW! It was about time that Dubai came up with the small boutique concept hotels. I am tired of the big crowded lobbies where you just get lost. I was by myself and I felt so welcomed by the staff... More

Warm hospitality, great suite with great views, lovely breakfast, perfectly located, etc.... After arrival we were allowed in the room straight away. Every time we left the hotel (even when it was for a few hours) we found our room tidied up. The staff and management of Al Manzil really understand hospitality and they have great eye for detail.

Actually was there on June 2013, had a car service from the hotel to fetch us from the airport. Was really happy with the service. The friendly Giant at the doorstep, Mr Calvo Tolli, greet us with a smile. The hotel was clean and everything was pleasant in the eyes. Will come back to Al Manzil in the future.

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.
