We weren't sure what to expect. From the minute we entered the lobby this place was service oriented. Even at 2 am the staff went above and beyond. The room was large and the bed was outstanding. It is in walking distance to the Mall & the Burj Khalifa. Would absolutely stay there again.

Perfect place to stay, friendly staff, great rooms and a fantastic restaurant! Close to Dubai Mall and easy to navigate around Downtown... The restaurant - La Serre is fantastic and the bar staff friendly. Ask for anything and they will do their best to accommodate your wished. Breakfast buffet is plentiful and rich - nothing missing!

By far the BEST hotel I have EVER stayed at! The concierge team does a superb job at recommending and making reservations at restaurants, attractions, and scenery that suit your requests. The location of the hotel is perfect for dining, scenery, and attractions. Finally, the hotel itself is beautiful and lively.

We don't usually go for large hotels ( I know this is small for Dubai, everything is relative) because we find them too formal and impersonal. Not the Vida ! Everyone is super friendly , even workmen in the corridor greet you warmly. It has been said before but the lasting impression is that the staff truly want you to... More

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
