We stayed at the Arjaan by Rotana (hotel appartments), situated at the Palm Jumeira in Dubai Media city. We choose the hotel for its central location between Dubai marinas (10 minute walk), the Palm (Atlantis waterpark) and close by the metroline alongside Sheikh Zayed Road (Nakheel station is less then one kilometer away - the metroline takes you to all the main attractions in Dubai worthwhile to see during a first visit).
We had booked a classic double bedroom suite, which means: Two separate bedrooms with their own bathroom, two terraces, a well equipped kitchen, a living room with dining table, three tv's etc. There is a small supermarket in the adjacent soukh and a Carrefour supermarket is nearby. You can also eat in the hotel restaurant. I was told the quality was good, but we always ate in our room or somewhere when on the road.
The appartment was big, comfortable and well maintained. What charmed us the most however was the extreme guest oriented focuss of the staff. They were always eager to make your stay more pleasant.
Arjaan by Rotana is a good location if you want to visit Dubai and see many of its main attractions. If you just want to sit by the pool and relax, there are better options, preferably a beach resort. The swimming pool is not that big and the noise of the road nearby can be disturbing.
If we visit the region again, we will most certainly take a look at the Rotana hotels again.
