“Good Option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2012

Stayed at Media One for a week on arriving in Dubai for a spell of work, as there were no serviced apartments available in the vicinity of our office.
The staff were all friendly, the breakfast was very good, and the rooms were modern, clean and very up to date and fashionable, with a good bathroom.
There isn't much around the hotel - the hotel is a five minute walk from the marina - which is a great place to stroll around in the evening, but otherwise everything else will need a car or a taxi.
Had a good view from my window towards the Gulf and the palm.

Room Tip: Sea view, as high as possible

I have stayed at Media One a few times. The rooms are small but well designed & the staff are friendly and helpful. Not the best location as there is no beach but it's not far from the public beach's at Jumeriah

I paid for a package deal which was supposed to have included a steak buffet for two, breakfast for two, and next day brunch for 2. I was told at reception because my friend only had Australian identification he would not be counted as a second guest therefore all the perks would only be for one person with no compensation or refund. I said that a local friend could join me for these with local ID, then she claimed that the breakfast and brunch was actually only for 1 person despite my email clearly indicating for 2 people! They pretty much scammed me and cheated there. I had only checked my email after I returned home for this. I pretty much took her word since I didn't imagine they would lie to my face.
Checkin was a horrible experience, their reception desk is right infront of a bar blasting out music so loud neither me nor the receptionist could hear each other. She then had the nerve to give me attitude over not hearing me despite that this is their problem? She actually huffed when I asked her to repeat a question since I have hearing problems and the music was so loud. She huffed loudly and paused, then gave me a dirty look like I was stupid and then continued to answer me. Overall was a nightmare to deal with, very rude.
Also, the room service food was horrible was well. I've stayed in two star motorway hotels in the UK that offered better quality room service food.

The rooms are great considering how much you pay. Good sized and great quality. Great value for money in that aspect. They are as good as some five stars I've been in. Only thing that might deter people is the music coming from the outdoor bar, but I expected that so it was not much of an issue.
Overall rooms are great, but the experience and being scammed at checkin will ensure I never go back. I suggest you double check your package before booking anything to ensure what you are getting.

Dear kgeresy

It is good to hear that you enjoyed the design of our hotel. It is very modern and minimalistic and appeals to the young at heart.

We are lucky that we also have a great location for the new Dubai and your are correct that we are very close by to the buzz of Dubai Marina.

for corporate travel it is ideal for people with business in Dubai Media City, Internet City, Knowledge Village and even Jebel Ali.

We hope to welcome you back in the near future to Dubai and Media One Hotel

Kind regards

We stayed at this hotel when watching the PGA European tour event at Emirrates Golf Club. It is a great location as you can walk through the metro station to get to the golf hence avoiding any need for taxis. The rooms are quite compact but have all you need and are clean. We had a Friday Night Owl brunch which was very good. I would stay here again if I was going to Emirates Golf Club but wouldn't rush back for any other reason.

Room Tip: Away from noisy outside bar

Great location near Dubai Internet city. The hotel is well designed and really stylish. It is close to the metro train line. The messages and themes are very 'hip' and upbeat. Facilities, amenities and space was adequate. Service was very good. But for an Italian restaurant next door, the only other nearby dining options are in the hotel. If you have business in Dubai Internet city this hotel is the best choice.,
