On our way from Dubai to Qasr Al Sarab we stayed for one night in Hyatt Capital Gate. It´s located off 30th street, not far from Shaikh Zayed Grand Mosque, half way from Airport to Corniche. Next to the Hotel is the A.D. Convention Center and in the area are many embassies. So not really a touristy area. However it´s ideal to visit the Grand Mosque, but be aware that visiting times are limited, so check before you go!
We were attracted by the architecture of the hotel and this is certainly the highlight. Our room was on 29 of 33 floors, reception is on 18, the pool that is "attached" to the building is on level 19. The design is more than stylish, bit cold but certainly one of the most fascinating design hotels we have ever stayed in. I expected the view to be a bit more spectacular, the view itself is great, but there is not much to look at.
Our rate did not include breakfast, so we cannot judge, however we experienced the service not to be perfect. We ordered ice cubes to our room which never came, at pool we ordered drinks, which came....after 15 minutes. There is room for improvement.
TIP: If you do not want to drive all the way to Corniche but still enjoy a coffee, breakfast or a quick lunch we can recommend Mushrif Mall nearby, it provides a Tim Horton, Bloomsbury and other places to eat.
As tourists and not being on business I would certainly not spend a week there, but we can recommend it for a short stay in order to experience the hotel and to discover an amazing building.
