This is one of the best hidden hotels in DXB. This hotel is around 10 to 15 mins driving from Dubai mall. Its in a very quite area of the city, if you seek privacy and want to relax from the hustle and crowdness this is one of the best places to stay and relax.

Up with the better 5 * hotels in Dubai, no real wow factor but for a quiet short stay, with stunning views of Meyden Racecourse, then this is hard to beat.

Positives;
Easy access to airport / malls even in the bad traffic
Race night's…..stunning
Excellent breakfast, take it outside if weather permits.
Expresso coffee in all rooms
Large, exceptionally comfortable beds

Could do better:
Room service slow / needed more than one call to get even the simplest of request sorted.
Meyden Beach club is next to a building site (not told before) so noise/dust all day & really can't see the value (DHS150 per day if you aren't staying at the hotel) Getting back through the traffic can take a while.

Booked two rooms on race night. Great view of the whole track from the 9th floor. Rooms beautifully presented with everything you need. Had the buffet lunch when we arrived, plenty of choice and attentive, polite staff. Pool was lovely and the pool guys were really helpful settling us in and asking if we wanted to sit in sun or shade, showing us the facilities etc. watched the races from our balcony and had room service for evening meal which was reasonably priced and we felt value for money. Breakfast was included in our room rate and there was plenty of choice. All together a really pleasant all be it a short stay. Would definitely stay again on race night. A special thank you to the male member if staff in the lobby who gave our grandson a toy camel when we were leaving.

The Meydan hotel was a surprise birthday present that couldn't have been beaten. The Staff could not do enough for us and the amenities at the Hotel were great. The hotel is situated out of Dubai but their Shuttle into Dubai was handy and there was always Hotel taxi's waiting to take you to where you wanted to go.
We will be going back as we had Superb time. Thank you to Akhil Vyas for making our stay so good.

If you are looking at travelling to Dubai with a view of attending the horseracing at Meydan, you should look no further than The Meydan Hotel. It is not that well located for other attractions and trying to find the hotel proved a real problem for more than one taxi driver. Communal areas were impressive; as was the small pool area. The room was fine with the view over the race course quite spectacular. With the only transport to / from the hotel being by way of car / taxi, one was reliant on the restaurants at the hotel; one of which was closed during our stay. Breakfast was good although in truth, have experienced better. Free wi fi was a major plus with the connection reliable; why of why do not more hotels offer such a service. Customer service was first class; all whom we came in to contact with were very polite.

Room Tip: All rooms face the race course so guaranteed a good view.

Dear guest,

Many thanks for your feedback and we are glad that you were impressed with our hotel facilities and services, as we always strive to provide the highest levels of customer care and hospitality to all our guests. I have shared your comments with all our staff and I am sure that they would be delighted to know that their service had been recognized. Your comments on our location and transport options have been well-noted. As our complex is sizable, numerous access points for entry and exit had to be provided. On your next visit, we invite you though to also try our Qube Restaurant and Sports Bar, which has a diverse menu, and also part of our Meydan Golf facility, The Track, while enjoying your favorite sports channel.
