I've been going to Dubai for the past eight years or so and have witness the city developing to the current ambitious metropolis. Radisson Royal wasnt on top of my list when considering booking a hotel in DXB, I was here on business and the company organised it, decided to stay on three more nights for leisure over the weekend.
Having stayed at various hotels in the region, Radisson Royal came as a surprise. I am member of the Club Carson and stayed at the Royal Club room with access to the Royal Club lounge on the 42nd floors (see images). I was impressed by the entire team from checkin to checkout. The staff were young and efficient, always helpful.
I had a high floor corner room and the view of Sheikh Zayed Road was quite impressive, what a way to start the morning with a view like this. (see images). The royal club lounge was never too crowded, I had breakfast, afternoon tea and pre-dinner drinks there. I recommend it, with a bit extra.
I also ate at the Japanese and Thai restaurant in the hotel, I have to say the quality of the food are great and the prices are as competitive as what you expect to pay in similar restaurants in the city, worth a try.
I didnt use the monorail, although one can see the station from the hotel. Taxi is inexpensive compare to UK. The great thing is the hotel is only approx 20 mins to/from the airport!
I dont have any thing bad to say about this hotel except there could be more sun beds in the pool area, as it can get busy at times and also some umbrella/parasols might help, the mid day sun can get a bit much. Not forgetting to say, I like the cold towel service from the pool boy.
This is a contemporary hotel, if you are after fancy Arabian theme then this is not for you. I would stay at Radisson Royal again for its efficiency, value and location.
