For a newly refurbished hotel themed "Arab Boutique" it seems strange that no locally produced water from the UAE is available. We were only offered Evian. Possibly something to do with the price? We drank Pepsi instead.

Charming, downtown in Dubai, next to Burji Kalifa, one of the best experience for spending your time in the city. Close to top restaurant with nice pool. If you can afford do not hesitate. You can have a nice Lebanese dinner in the restaurant. Breakfast is really gorgeous.

It is perfectly located for a visit to the Burj Khalifa and the fountains with choice of restaurants within walking distance. Lots of amenities such as a pool and courtyard. Breakfast buffet is ok but not outstanding. We also liked the Arab design, much better than hotels that could be anywherein the world and being able to stroll along the... 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.
