Recently I stayed in Manjil, Down Town, Dubai and was amazed to see Burj Khalifa full view from the window. Hotel is small in size but big in facilities. The way welcome was done was like a first time experience. The hotel staff came to lobby where I was seating to take details rather than me standing on counter. Food,... More

The Hotel is located at the edge of the Manzil district in walking distance to the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall. The district is designed in a traditional Arabic style combined with the view to the Burj Khalifa we had from our Deluxe room for a week was just perfect.The modern arabic ambiance was nice, especially the inner courtyard.

This was our fourth or fifth visit to this hotel however unlike the previous times we did not enjoy our stay. I guess the management is trying to make more economical choices. These are my reasons for believing so: the breakfast buffet was much much smaller, we had to order from a menu and it was not as enjoyable as... More

So this is the most basic hotel I have been in, and looks to be modeled on a youth hostel or university dorms, although I don't think any dorm room or hostel was ever so sleek. Trust Dubai and Emaar to put a whole new spin on minimalism. Hotel with a really nice, young, youthful vibe. Maybe I kind of... More

This is maybe the objectively nicest hotel I have ever stayed in... every detail is gorgeous. We stayed less than two months after their full renovation, and everything is shiny, new, stylish, clean, and sleek. I loved it. The lobby decor is comfortable and welcoming.

What a lovely hotel just minutes from where you want to be. The location of this hotel is perfect for sightseeing and shopping, very easy to get where you want to go. The rooms are superb, I would recommend them more for a couple than friends/family because there is little privacy in the bathroom. Breakfast is great so would definitely... More

The new refurbishment of the hotel is really fresh and nice and much more modern. Silicon in the room looked yellow around the bathtub and was missing near the sink but otherwise room was very clean. The biggest disappointment was seeing the poor birds in two ornamental cages near the courtyard restaurant. (cages are about 1 1/2 - 2 metres... 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.
