“Absolutely Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

What a find! Not only the hotel but the staff were just as fabulous. I can't highly recommend the Battuta Gate highly enough.
We had booked in the month of Ramadam and although it restricted us in not being able to eat and drink in between dawn and dusk - in public - the hotel and staff were outstanding.
The restaurant food was superb. We ate in the Mistral -the surf and turf nights were good. The Sicilia was very good and the Indian Chor Bazaar was superb. It certainly earned its "BBC Good Food 2013 Award. And let's not forget the Manager and staff in the hotels Bar who were rather busy as the football World Cup was being televised live but managed to serve us all with a smile
Definitely would stay at this hotel again but not in July
Superb!!!!!!

Stayed here for a conference back in the Fall of 2013. Upon arrival we found that the conference booking company had made a mistake and I was not booked into a room for the first few nights. The was pretty much full, but an executive suite was available. The staff went out of their way and booked me into the executive suite at a significant discount.

The hotel is beautifully adorned and emasculate, with each floor following the theme of a region where the Islamic traveler Inn Battuta visited.

In addition, the rooftop pool (although not large) was wonderful and has a great view out at the skyline of Dubai and the hotel is well connected to the city via the train line.

Over all it was a great experience.

The stay in the hotel was extremely comfortable as always, that is the reason of staying in this hotel again and again whenever I am in Dubai. The facilities and especially the reception is extra ordinary pleasing, during my recent stay the extraordinary support and services offered by the front office responsible, Kathy Lim were amazing. I prefer staying in this hotel next time also.

I have to laugh when I see that people have given this hotel a poor review,and in my opinion there reason seem to be very petty.We have stayed at the movenpick at battuta gate on several occasions we find facility's and service to be of an amazing standard,we previously stayed at the Atlantis and found the service at movenpick was on par with the Atlantis and far less expensive because it was all inclusive,for anyone looking for a fabulous hotel at tremendous value for money,I strongly recommend this hotel.We are visiting the battuta again in August with 7 friends and family and can't wait!!!!!!!
