“Nice grand old hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Great stay. Well situated to old city and Deira Creek. Had an awesome boat dinner on the Creek! Staff are attentive, and additional cafes and dining onsite is great. You can enjoy the evening or early morning on the room balconies - small but adequate for a single person or couple.

Lovely hotel, and would recommend to anyone who is not hooked on a very modern decor new hotel. Would stay again.

The location is excellent, close to the Dubai Creek and the Souk. However the price is high for a somewhat dated hotel. On the plus side there is a very good choice of restaurants in the complex - Italian, Persian, Japanese, Fish and a pub. Also the Hotel has a 'restaurant boat' which travels along the Creek at night - a good night out. The location trumps all other features.

Room Tip: Ask for Creek view

Stayed at the Blu in December 2012 for 2 nights while being on a business trip.
The hotel is good to stay if only the location suits you for your business purpose. My office is 2 minutes walking distance from the hotel so i don't really have a choice on the hotel selection. The hotel though is far away from the city centre and if you get stuck in traffic you waste time for no reason.
The hotel is quite old. The rooms look old and heavy. The furniture, the small balcony with the decade-old chair and table, the really old bathroom, bathtub, ceiling and toilet are some things you will definately notice.
Staff is really good, everywhere you look you can find somebody to help you. Lots of choices for dining in the hotel. Had lunch at the enlglish pub before i left for the airport. Average food and service.
Also had dinner in the room. Delicious soup and chicken and great service.
I also used the limo service to drive me around the city and was really good. The driver knew eveything about Dubai and was really willing to answer my questions and follow the places i liked to see.

Overall a good experience. The rooms need to be fixed and given a fresh air look.Good hotel, good staff...

We stayed fro two nights at this hotel. Having arrived at 6.00am, rooms are only available from 2.00pm, however the excellent Front Desk staff (Rahul) informed us that he would try to have our rooms ready while we have breakfast in the Boulvar Restaurant. Much to our joy, our rooms were ready by the time we finished breakfast. this was so welcome after a long 12 hour flight! Our room was very pleasant with a view of the Creek. Wi-Fi is available in teh Lobby and an internet cable in teh rooms. The Metro Station is a few minutes walk behind the hotel and extremely convenient. The only minor complaint I have is that our room was extremely noisy. We heard furniture being dragged at 4.00am, doors banging and toilets flushing! This may no longer be the most fashionable area of Dubai to stay in, but it was convenient and the rates were very good. I enjoyed the Creek view especially at night with the dhows lit up. Having been to Dubai before, I particularly chose this area for the shopping and activities that I wanted to do and was not disappointed.
If I should go to Dubai for a purely shopping trip, I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Avoid Room 712!

When taking in a hotel in Dubai during the last 5 years, with no room at the villa, I have more often than not stayed at the Radisson Blu Deira. I liked the choice of restaurants, the reliability of Radisson, the comfort and professionalism, and the sport club and pool. I love the Asian fusion restuarant 'Yum' and go there regularly. I also like to go shopping at the camping/ hunting shop across the street before flying to Kazakhstan - which I often do. The staff were great and Deira has been as often as not convenient for my meetings. However, I have now been assured for what must be 9+ months that the pool will be repaired within the month. It is exceptionally irritating to be told when booking that the hotel has a pool when in fact the pool has been shut for almost a year. The Business centre is not particularly great, but works.

This used to be my top choice in Dubai for value, but without the pool that is no longer true. I have to say though that the view is still great looking out over the Creek. The business lounge on the higher floors is also great, but despite having spent a fortune on Radisson hotels over the years I never seem to be given access.

Went here for the New Years Eve 'gala dinner'. Supposedly six restaurants presenting their dishes to choose from.

Quantity not quality would be the best way to describe it. Very average quality, cheap buffet food. 500+ dirs a head??? You must be joking. My expectations were high after reading the promo but sadly it was a blatant rip off.

I have never before spent so much money and been so shockingly disappointed.

Sitting in a mostly empty restaurant, the music had only just started and was way too loud. Over-cooked chewy seafood, & bright pink raw under roasted meat. Annoying cold drafts from the door to the outside area that was continuously open and shut.

I won't be coming back.
