Great little Hotel within walking distance of the fountain at dubai mall. Great rooms (a little on the small side). Service is fantastic and pool area pretty decent. More a business hotel than a tourist one. Fantastic wifi that is free!

Dear firstclasschick

Its great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. It sounds like you got to do some exploring and see the awe inspiring shows at the fountain across the street.
I am pleased to hear that you received good service as well.

Wifi is available throughout the hotel and guests can enjoy fast access where ever they are.

Kind regards,

One of the most pleasant and cosy hotels I have ever been to. Excellent service and delicious breakfasts, fantastic location - down Town Dubai. We were upgraded to suite and had a wonderful Burj Khalifa view, Nespresso machine for a morning cafe for gourmets, comfortable beds, friendly room service, a pleasure to spend time both in a room, as well as in hotel lobby or in a restaurant in the middle of the hotel, a pleasant pool and a walking distance to Burj Khalifa and to numerous restaurants and The Dubai Mall. The hotel located in the very heart of Dubai - the flagship also liked by the locals and the tourists.

Room Tip: Book and enjoy suite with Burj Khalifa view, if you prefer a quiet room (not facing street) enjoy eg...

It sounds like you had a chance to get the best of the surrounding areas and appreciate the key features offered by the hotel.

I hope that we can welcome you and your partner back to the hotel soon.

Stayed with family for several days. The people at the front desk (particularly Jeva) was more than eager to assist and the hospitality of the staff at the coffee shop, including the sense of humor of its manager (sorry i forgot the name) is much appreciated. The concierge is quite helpful but can be pushy on occasions. Its nice to have a few drinks at the courtyard which can become very busy at night so be sure to come early or make a reservation. Did not have the chance to try the Boulevard Cafe but the place, with a clear view of the Burj Khalifa, looks enticing. The Dubai Mall (aquarium, dancing fountain, foodcourt) is just across the street so shopping and alternative food will not be a problem. Wife may have left something in one of the rooms and we're still working on it. Had breakfast at the same table for four days :)

Room Tip: Try to get rooms away from the highway

Dear ALC63

We appreciate your feedback on your stay.
Our staff are very passionate about their jobs and perhaps the concierge's enthusiasm may have come across as pushy, but I will be sure to mention this to the team.

I hope the items left behind have been successfully located.

Kind regards,

Perfect small hotel in walking distance of Emaar Square, Burj fountain (largest fountain in the world!! ), Dubai Mall and more...
Staff goes out of their way to show you where you want to go. Hotel has small party pool (open 7am-7pm- not ideal for the business traveler) and small but adequate gym. , Al Manzil's guests have access to a larger fitness center with a bigger pool, which is open until 10pm.
would definitely stay here again, but would try to get a hotel with a view in the direction of the Burj Khalifa.....

Based on the needs of our business travelers, the arrangement with the gym next to our hotel was made to make your health & fitness needs met in a time convenient to you.

I look forward to seeing you at the hotel on your next visit.

Stayed in this hotel last month while in town on business. The location is great, handy for Dubai Mall and DIFC.

The staff were extremely helpful and the room very comfortable, although a little weird for my liking. The bathroom is open plan, so the toilet and shower cubicle are up against one wall then there's a large open space between those cubicles and the bath. The bathroom space ends up dominating what is actually a pretty good sized room, leaving the workspace very cramped. Personally I prefer more space to work, but I suspect it's a matter of taste and priorities. If you don't need a lot of desk space you might love it.

Only other small gripe, the cooked breakfast wasn't great. Other than that, highly recommended.

Dear VS1711

Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

The unique layout of our rooms was something that took careful consideration but as you rightly mentioned - perhaps would not suit all tastes.
The staff at Al Manzil are one of our greatest assets and I am thrilled that you had a positive experience when dealing with them.

Kind regards,

Stayed here for three nights in March 2013. The hotel is a very high level four star hotel.

TIP: There is a Spinneys supermarket in the hotel complex, which stocks everything from fresh fruit platters to Waitrose products. It was a revelation considering the Downtown area, and hotel, is so expensive.

The hotel is in a great location, five minutes walk from Souk Al-Bahar and the Dubai Mall and the fountains. The Dubai Mall will keep you busy for days!

The prices are very high for anything in the hotel, but this is a common feature in Downtown Dubai, and Dubai in general.

The sheesha in the courtyard is one of the most popular places for locals, expats and travellers to go, so it is nice to have a beer and some sheesha after a long day out and about.

The service is very good overall. It's definitely noticeable that its not a fully fledged 5* star hotel in terms of service - I had to drag our luggage into the lobby before check-in on late night arrival - but it is still very professional, efficient and friendly.

Fully recommend this hotel.

Dear Loveoftravel1234

Thanks for taking the time to write a review.

I'm sure visitors will love your tip on the Spinneys, along with with various other great malls and traditional stores near by.

The Courtyard restaurant is great most months of the year, and I'm glad that you got a chance to see the great ambience of shisha and various refreshing beverages.

It is very unusual that you had to drag in your luggage - and I will look into making sure the arrival area is always properly manned.

I hope when next in Dubai that you drop in and pay us a visit.

Kind regards,

Stefan Viard
