“One of the finest hotels I 've stayed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

I 've only stayed once at this hotel for 5 days because of a business trip and have truly enjoyed my stay. The location is great, centrally located and walking distance to the metro, other hotels, banks, shops, and fast food within Media City and a few minutes from most worth-seeing sites. Located within Media City makes this a great business hotel with print shops, and offices nearby.

The facilities are great, the gym is better than most hotels and the appartments are very spacious with separate living room, kitchen and dining. The food is wonderful with excellent service and a very nice but not exceptional morning buffet

The overall conclusion is great value for money and I would definitely stay again when in Dubai!

This was our second time here. We had had two bedroom apartment on the 10th floor. Room is OK but there is a lot of noise at the moment from the road and construction. The construction stops but the road does not. With ear plugs it was OK but enough to make me look elsewhere next time. Breakfast is functionality but nothing special and seems more focused to those that have already paid for it in their room rate. There is a small store to get supplies though.

The hotel is dry so take note if you like a drink.

Pool is small but OK but again a lot of noise from the road.

All in all pretty average for Dubai. If you get a good rate it may be worth it. Just ask for a room not overlooking the road.

Many thanks for your review. I am sorry that you were disturbed by noise – a common issue in Dubai but we are currently in the middle of increasing the soundproofing of all windows and this should be finished very soon.

We hope to welcome you back in the not too distant future.

Wonderfully large suite at very affordable price in the heart of Dubai. 4 minutes walk from Union Metro station. the breakfast restaurant is a bit far and is shared by two tower hotels by Rotana. Other than that, everything went perfect.

Hi stayed at the Arjaan for the second year. Apartment as always was very clean, large and had all the amenities that would be required during the stay
Some negative areas in that we had on occasion to chase having our room cleaned as it still had not been completed at 5.30 this left us late for a prior appointment. To make the situation worse the safe broke in the room on our way out and we had to wait for 45 minutes for some to come and look at it and then 15 minutes or so to eventually fix. This was despite multiple assurances that people were on the way to the room immediately, very disappointed in that our evening was severely impacted.
There is building work going on around the hotel, but there is all over Dubai at this moment. The harbour entrance is heavily congested with large machinery and multiple workforces in the area, with little or no regard for pedestrians. We went to the beach that the Hotel recommended, thankfully on a Friday as again there is building work going on just to the left area on the beach which would prove noisy any other time
The food in the hotel is off a really good standard, we attended the Italian and Asian evenings and only wished we had made the Arabic night on the Sunday. The choice of food is immense and so flavoursome with great detail and attention to service and detail.
The pool area is clean and the pool team very attentive please tip them, no-one seemed to other than me.
The hotel in general is very clean, the staff are lovely and I would have no problem in recommending it to anyone

The hotel had to provide me a Smoking Room. They did not have one. So, they have given me a room which has 4 bedrooms, 5 toilets (3 of which have a bath tub), 1 huge kitchen, 1 huge living room, 1 huge dining room, freeze, washing machine, cooking range, complete set of crockery and utensils, ironing board, 5 LCD TVs, 3 verandahs and much more. I was shocked when I entered the room. I asked for something small and so that I could also pay less. They said they did not have one. I was living in a building with more than 30 floors and I was on the 20th floor which had just 4 apartments. I was lost in this place. I walked into the wrong place when I needed going to open the door, etc.

It was a great place to stay in Dubai.
Nice view from the 17th floor. I stayed in the room 1704. It had a great view. from balcony i can see royal mirage boat festival and palm leaf of palm jumeriah.
Pool was temperature controlled and always clean.
Jacuzzi is smally, but very strong and gives good massage to body.
Breakfast has wide variety of food, including indian dishes like paratha and dal/aloo curries.
Lunch was ala carte, and to be honest, didn't have experience with lunch.

Having stayed at several hotel apartments in Dubai, I am by far impressed by the Arjaan by Rotana. As a long term guest I have been extremely happy with all that this place has to offer. The apartment is spacious with separate dining, kitchen, lounge and several balconies to enjoy the uninterrupted views of Dubai. The view of the Palm from here is breathtaking and the best sunsets I've ever seen. A tram line is being constructed outside the building and the noise can be a little distracting but that is no fault of the hotel as you will find this issue anywhere in Dubai with the constant upgrades of roads and construction of new buildings. The cleanliness of our apartment and the hotel in general is something I can't fault. If you enjoy dining in the hotel, the restaurant and room service cater for all tastes and very reasonably priced. The facilities are fabulous especially the pool with its beautiful view overlooking the Palm and best of all in the Summer, the pool is chilled to keep you cool all day. It's location is close to Malls, the Marina, the Palm and the Metro. The area has many restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance. What makes our time here so special is the undivided attention of the staff. From the GM to all that work here, they are always happy to fulfill our needs. Any issues at hand, they take care of immediately and are constantly striving to keep us happy. As we are regular travelers, it's rare to find exceptional service and staff who make your stay so pleasant. Many people who we've met here, including us refer to the Arjaan...Home away from home.
