Al Manzil is almost the best value-for-money hotel in Dubai Downtown area. If you are looking for a residence that is close to Dubai Mall -within walking distance- and that is not as pricey as The Address or The Palace then Al Manzil is the place to go.
My wife and I have stayed here twice, 3 nights each. First time we had an inner view of the hotel pool. The second time we had a better view; Emaar Avenue, The Address and part of Dubai Mall. If you can afford Burj View room I think it would be better not only in terms of view but also in terms of interior (as I can tell from the pictures on their website). The Burj View has also a more private bathroom and bath tub; the open area bathroom which is available in the more basic rooms might be awkward when using toilet (no enough sound insulation).
Walking to Dubai Mall takes less than 10 minutes and is around 1 km; you just have to cross Emaar avenue, walk through The Palace entrance yard, and go through the Souq Al Bahaar.
We did not use most of the hotel facilities, so I cannot give a review on the restaurants or swimming pool. However, room service was good. Parking service is free and very useful if you are coming by road and planning for driving in Dubai (I'd have never made it to/in Dubai without navigator).
Check-in/-out are generally smooth but at times take a bit long; however there are seats where my wife could sit and rest during the process.
Overall, it was a lovely stay, especially being near the Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa and driving our own car in Dubai (came from Oman). Thanks to Al Manzil.
