We had a few days in Dubai recently after travelling in Iran. We knew our time in Iran would be full on, so we planned for a few days luxury in Dubai before getting home. Raffles Dubai more than delivered. Everything about our stay was perfect. We upgraded to a raffles club room and it was definitely worth it. Our... More

The check-in was with ease. Our suite was from out of the Arabian Nights. We worked with our travel agent, to take care of our reservations since we would be far from home. We found out we had nothing to worry about. We were in good hands with the staff.

A perfect place to combine business and pleasure. The staff always go an extra mile . The views from the rooms are exquisite especially the view of the Dubai skyline with the view of Burj Khalifa especially at night . Breakfast is sumptuous and the room service prompt . The espresso machine in the room is a good touch too... More

Stayed if Raffles Dubai for 5 nights on Route to the F1 GP. Loved the elegance of the hotel, and was amazed with the architecture of the reception area, including the 'Raffles Fragrance' that greats you on entering the hotel. It would be unfair to single out an individual member of staff for praise as everyone in the Hotel simply... More

The Raffles was our first stop for our honeymoon. We were impressed right from the beginning. As soon as you walk in you are greeted with smiling and friendly staff who are willing to assist with any enquiry. The food, decor and ambiance are unparalleled. This is by far the best hotel we have ever stayed at! Once Roni our... More

Dubai reminds me of Las Vegas: an instand city that sprung out of hte desert. Like Vegas, it is a city of flash and bling, nad the Raffles Dubai fits right in. First, this hotel is near the airport but about 15 minutes from Sheik Zayed Blvd. where the malls, clubs and restuarants are clustered so the location is not... More

We recently stayed here for ten nights with our four year old. The hotel was very good. In particular the staff were superb; consistently professional, helpful but also fun. The food was good, breakfast was especially nice. Slightly disappointing that Fire & Ice and some of the gardens were closed for refurbishment although to preserve the high standard we accepted...

I've stayed here countless times as I travel to Dubai on business almost every month. From head to toe the staff, the hotel and the amenities are always top notch. Sure sometimes there are niggles and little things but all you need to do is mention them and they will be rectified immediately. The staff are so eager to help... More

I recently stayed at the Raffles Dubai for business but would use it for leisure also. The hotel is really beautiful without being "over the top glitzy" like many of the hotels in Dubai. It's well located between the airport and downtown and taxi or private car transportation is relatively expensive. Staff was extremely warm and gracious and helpful and... More
