Media One being ideally located across the Financial Times office in Media City, Dubai, is the haunt for all visiting editorial and sales colleagues. In that respect I would definitely rate it #1.
I have stayed in a number of good business class hotels in various parts of the world, and would say that in comparison, Media One offers a better, more user-friendly room especially when it comes to amenities. However, I would say that the service does tend to fall short especially when it comes to cleanliness. Not that there were any pests running around, but I was rather disappointed when I returned back to my room late one evening, only to find that my orange juice glass of the previous night was still lying around. You can imagine the stench of the remaining juice that was still in the glass.
This being my first trip to Dubai, I was quite keen to savour the taste of local cuisine. The first night however, I was offered Japanese food and having eaten the best of Japanese in my many trips to Hong Kong, it was a mighty disappointment. The next night when I decided to order the Arabic cuisine, once again I was disappointed as there was little taste in the food. However, I must quickly add that the blueberry cheesecake was awesome.
The hotel offers various amenities. However, being on a business trip, I hardly got to use any of the facilities, or even do proper justice to the breakfast banquet, which I must say was not only elaborate but offered a taste of the local cuisine.
As far as the service is concerned, I would say it was mix. But all in all, I would definitely return back to stay at the same hotel if only for the ideal location and ambience. However, I would shy away from inhouse catering and opt instead to try out the restaurants outside Media One.
