Been there for 5 nights (18th to 22nd Nov'12) for work & loved it. Rooms are clean & spacious, good choice of foods in the Channels restaurants though there is lack of variation. I found almost the same menu served everyday. Staffs are helpful & professional. Meeting arrangements were very good. Not so friendly for family stay because of the location, which is in the middle of a construction zone & the nearest Metro station is 10 minutes walk through the construction sites. In summer days this is going to be a pain to catch a train. Overall, I enjoyed my stay over there, it's a good value for money.

I stayed here for 3 weeks in a one bedroom serviced apartment.
Not too roomy but definitely adequate for 2 people.
Great little kitchen area if you feel the need to cook yourself, comfy beds and great bathrooms and showers that you could fit 3 people in.
The hotel entrance is quite opulent, the team on reception are excellent whatever your needs.
If you are on a long stay you can have free vouchers for a drink in one of the bars, coupons for 20% off in the restaurants and spa.
Great gym on the first floor adjacent to the spa.

The terrace bar is a great place to relax and unwind, great food at reasonable prices, sheesha is available in a multitude of flavors for about 10 GBP (exchange rate dependant)

Great pool area until the sun goes down and then the music starts up.
Excellent location with plenty of taxis downstairs.

They also have Nelsons bar which reminded me of a British Weherspoons pub, good food and atmosphere, it does tend to fill up with some of the good time girls on occasion.

All in all, very comfortable, very friendly and I would definitely recommend this to anyone that wants to stay in this location.

Room Tip: All the rooms are the same format, pick a high up room so you cant hear the inhouse nightclub.

Stayed here for a few nights for work and absolutely loved the experience. Not a frequent hotel-stay lover in Dubai, as I live here, this was quite an interesting experience.
The hotel has all the necessary amenities one would require, great breakfast (English breakfast options and Continental breakfast options are excellent, skip the Indian/Asian section totally, oh and do NOT miss the muffins/croissants etc.), excellent beds and great facilities better serviced with prompt action from staff- pool, gym etc. At all times, there was someone providing solutions, which was great.
This hotel has the quickest turnaround for valet parking service and it had amazed me everytime how quick the car was brought out to me. Same goes for housekeeping. Exemplary service.
Would definitely recommend people to come in and stay if you are in Dubai. 5 star service in 3 star prices!

Room Tip: Rooms facing Al Khail Road is beautiful, ask for it!

I've been in Media Rotana hotel for a three-day business presentation, we rented a meeting room and two classic rooms.
The staff was very professional for organizing the meeting room, even when they faced our unusual requests (a special type of sofa, a green plant, a small tea table) and they didn't have any problem to help us caring heavy equipment.
Our room were in a nice position (from the window we could see the terrace bar and its swimming pool) on the fifth floor, everything was pretty clean, there were both shower and bathtub and plenty of towels. The only thing improvable was the time needed to get hot water: more than 10 minutes (but once I've reported that to the director it seems that it has improved...).
I was in a smoking room and the air extractor did very well his duty.
During my stay I always ate at the italian restaurant and it was good, pasta was comparable to an italian restaurant, pizza was ok but nothing special. Everything was expensive, incredibly expensive! (The equivalent of 60 € for a fillet, 40 € for pasta and 20 € for pizza).
In the hotel there was also a British pub and a Chill out bar, where were also possible to smoke "Hookah".

Breakfast is completely international, so everyone could find every kind of food (sweet, salty, fat, light...) that can match his tastes, even the "espresso" is worthy of its name!
The staff is really professional, they speak a very good english and most of them welcomed us with a smile, some of them also tried (successfully) to greet us in italian (and they pronounced correctly my difficult surname at the first attempt!).
