My fiancee and I stopped over in Dubai on our way home to Australia from a 6.5 week holiday in Europe. We arrived at 1am and after a lengthy delay in the arrival of our baggage, were pleased to find our hotel representative waiting to collect us at 2.30am in the arrival hall.
Check-in was smooth and the hotel was excellent. The staff at the front desk were exceptional throughout our stay.
Rooms were large (we had a Traders Club Room), clean and the beds very comfortable. The only 'gripe' we had was a smell of smoke in the lobby at times and in the hallwways (we are non-smokers). Thankfully our rooms were absent of any smoke smell.
One thing to note is that if you have paid for a Traders Club Room, you are supposed to have breakfast in the Club Lounge and use the internet there as well. We were not made aware of this and found breakfast and wi-fi charged to our bill. When we explained we had paid for this in our Traders Club room rate, the lovely front desk attendant explained we were supposed to use the Club Lounge facilities and took the cost off our bill. Our feedback would be that this should be pointed out to guests upon arrival.
We didn't check out the Club Lounge breakfast but the 'normal' breakfast was sensational on the ground level. Lots of variety on off including cereals, fresh breads and jams, eggs, pancakes, and a wide selection of European and Asian dishes.
The gym was of high quality and it was nice to complete a workout in the comfort of airconditioning when it was 46 degrees outside. The hotel is located close to the airport and it was a short taxi fare to the nearby Dubai Mall (about 15 minutes in a taxi). We chose not to use the hop-on hop-off bus promoted by the Tourist desk at the hotel as we had limited time and wanted to do a bit of shopping.
Would definitely recommend this hotel and you can get great rates by booking well in advance (if you have that luxury of time). Front desk staff were exceptional and nothing was too much trouble for them. We will definitely go back to the Traders Dubai.
