Although the reservation team made it clear that the hotel was a four star it had all the makings of a five star hotel. Great location, great food, great and friendly service. Totally enjoyed the ambiance.

Vida Downtown and Manzil are two sister hotels both located on the Boulevard. As such the architecture, style and amenities are exactly the same. The rooms are nice and modern, and the lobby is beautifully designed and stands out from the usual obnoxious Dubai hotel lobbies. The best part of Vida is the restaurant located on the Boulevard, La Serre,... More

this was my second stay at vida and once again it didn't disappoint. The staff are friendly, informative and polite. The ambience of the hotel is perfect. Checking in and out of the hotel is swift and not a long drawn out process The rooms are great, the decor is simple but hip.

Staff at this hotel are extremely efficient, professional, and friendly. Staff was more than happy to assist with my multiple questions. My room was fresh, modern, and very clean. Furnishings seemed new. My room (208) had a nice view of the Burj Khalifa, which beautifully lights up with graphics in the evenings. The room also had a large screen interactive... 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.
