Stayed here end of September/beginning of October for a few nights. First time in Dubai so picked this hotel based on location and previous reviews.
The Rose Rayhaan Rotana is located within the cities financial district just off Sheikh Zayed Road, pretty much the middle of Dubai, with easy access to the metro station (5 minutes walk) and there always seemed to be plenty of taxis around. The hotel also has its own taxi service which comes in handy especially for transfers to the airport early in the morning.
Rooms are spacious and maintained to a high standard, our room was cleaned pretty thoroughly on a daily basis and mini bar replenished every day. The bed was comfortable and had no problems getting a good nights sleep ( I usually find it incredibly difficult to achieve a decent sleep in hotel beds). My only issue regarding the room was the aircon which we found difficult to control and maintain at a reasonable temperature, but this is pretty minor point.
The hotel has a gym facility, spa (limited number of treatments compared to other hotels I've stayed in) and a swimming pool located on the 4th floor which overlooks the towering skyscrapers around the area (the view is actually quite nice despite how you may picture it in your head).
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available in the hotels restaurant, "Rose", the selection on offer at breakfast was of a good standard and plentiful. We only eat breakfast at the restaurant twice as we're not big morning eaters and found it relatively expensive compared to nipping to the nearest Starbucks (2 minutes away) for coffee and cake. There is also a coffee/tea shop at the hotel which sells a selection of tea's, coffees and some very nice cakes and biscuits which are often too tempting when you walk by and Esther makes a fantastic pot of tea btw. Door staff also serve dates and coffee to guests at the door too when you enter which is a nice touch.
All the staff at the hotel are very polite, helpful and will genuinely go out of their way to ensure you are satisfied - right from the moment you check in to when you check out again. I enjoyed my stay so much that I have told friends and family to consider this hotel if they every visit Dubai.
Overall - great location, lovely staff and a very pleasant stay awaits you at the Rose Rayhaan
