I always use the Vida Downtown Dubai, it is in the center of the world for me! Whenever I get there I feel like I am home, the staff is friendly and the service is excellent, I particularly like the breakfast set up that they have! They also always change design themes internally which keeps the hotel always looking cool!

We spend our honeymoon in Vida Hotel. The position was great, only 10 minute walk to Dubai mall, with lots of restaurants near the hotel. Swimming pool was relaxing but do not count on it for sunbathing. Because of the high building around the pool, you cannot use sun. The hotel was clean and staff was friendly and courteous. Every...

I think that Vida is one of the best boutique hotel in downtown Dubai for the perfect location, quality and design of the rooms. The service is absolutely 5stars and the courtesy of the staff is always good. The location is perfect to reach the venue and the major hightlight of the city and easy to go outside.

We stayed at Vida Downtown Dubai for 2 nights on our way home from 9 weeks travelling the UK. This Hotel is superior in its welcoming and efficient staff, the comfort and attractiveness of the rooms and facilities. Our room was beautiful with the largest most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. The pool with its little covered poolside... More

Stage 2 @Vida Downtown Dubai, is such a generous and hospitable place. Moreover, it's so elegantly cosy that you feel so relaxed. Mr. Kimo, the manager managing the place is like a family "man" member, taking good care of everyone. He's exactly the right person for this lounge. It's always a pleasure to visit Stage 2!

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.
