I stayed at Media One for a total of 15 nights. I chose it by recomendation from an expat living in Dubai as a good place to go if you're travelling alone. I was here on business on my own and found Media One to be great not only for working, but also for playing! Media City is a great location for Sheik Zayed Road and all the hotel bars around the Marina as well as the infamous Barasti. But Media One itself has a lively bar on ladies night and Thursdays and does plenty of promotions.

Regardless of the location, it's the service that makes this place a real winner. From the gentlemen at the entrance that would get me cabs to the guys at the bar, to reception, to the restaurant manager, I was always welcomed with a friendly smile, and I got to know the team at Media One on a first name basis ( probably because i spent far too much time in the hotel bar!) They made me feel like a valued customer and even like a friend. Anything I needed, they were there with recomendations, services, etc. I really can't say anything even remotely negative about this hotel and will definitely be where I stay moving forward when I am over here for business/pleasure!

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the Palm - you won't regret it! The higher the better!

Visiting the Media One at least 2 a month, every time I 'm pleasantly surprised by the friendly and skilled staff. Yesterday evening we enjoyed their Cheese & Wine dinner. Fabulous, Excellent, etc. I actually couldn't stop. Fantastic initiative and in a great setting. They'll see me again, for sure.

The location is great - right in Media City, there's a bus (88) that stops almost in front and goes to many good locations, and the Metro is about a 10 minute walk. Taxis are dirt cheap, and you can get to Jumeirah Beach for about 15 AED (3-4 Euros or 4-5USD). They have some great food and drink deals (including 120AED for unlimited drinks and chef's choice). The bartenders were very friendly, as were the rest of the staff. The gym and pool are very nice. My only complaint had to do with the fact that you have to pay for internet (outside of the public areas, it's free there), the room had a bathroom that you could see straight through (not sure if they only give this to solo travelers, but it is a turn-off), and I am not a huge fan of gimmicky marketing, which is at the cornerstone of their strategy. Still, it was a great value, every taxi driver knows it, and you will enjoy Dubai if you stay there.

Room Tip: Stay away from rooms ending in 09-10 if you don't want to be by the elevator.

Dear adricornell

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay at Media One Hotel.

Your hints and tips regarding gettting around in the area will prove invaluable for other guests and we are pleased you enjoyed our central location.

Thank you for your comments regarding the internet in the rooms; we will review this. However we are happy you enjoyed the free WiFi in all the public areas.

We realise the design aspect of some of our bathrooms are not to eveyone's taste but maybe next time you could treat yourself and book into a Cool Room which does not have the glass wall to the bathroom

We pride ourselves on value for money promotions in our food & beverage outlets and we are pleased you managed to try FEED ME in Z:ONE - an all inclusive 2hour deal for food and drink for only 120AED.

We look forward to welcoming you back very soon

Kind regards

Stayed here for a few nights recently whilst on business. Arrival at hotel at almost 3am was a bit slow but reception area looked funky as did bar area which seems to attract the 20-30 age group in the evening. Prices not too bad. The breakfast is really good. Lots of choice and of a good standard. Generally the hotel is of a very good standard but certain things in the rooms let it down with design over function. Sinks that take an age to empty was one bug bear, might seem menial but a pain none the less. Beds on small side but comfy. Pool area was very nice and uber cool ! Hotel is just a 10 min walk from Marina too. Would stay again.

Trendy and Chic, it has got a modern design with a good bar and restaurant. Friday afternoons are chilled and relaxed with the brunch buffet got a decent spread and nice music. The hotel is well located close to other hotels around media city as well to the Dubai Marina and most night spots.

The rooms are well appointed and clean, though room service is a little slow. The gym is well equipped and very well maintained.

Overall, its a neat hotel.

Room Tip: take the rooms on a higher floor with facing the marina.
