I've been to the palace two times before this one, the first time was in 2009, the second time was in 2010 and I loved t each and every time. The palace location is excellent. You don't need a car to go to Dubai mall, you can walk through Albahar Souq and get to Dubai mall through the fountain bridge.... More

At night, Dubai is enigmatic and vibrant but when driving into the Hotel grounds we were transported to another world. (We arrived at 00:30). Opulent. Elegant. Welcoming. Awesome.

Luxury hotels of low-rise architecture of very high-quality Arabian style nestling in vast artificial lake shores . Anyone will be speechless in the room of fine arabic interior decor, with the odd but superb view of the ultra- high-rise " Burj Khalifa " of futuristic design.

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.
