i was attending a function at this hotel and managed to get a good rate through booking.com
my luggage took a long time to arrive and i was in a hurry
the lights and curtains are operated electronically so it took ages (once i found my glasses) to work out how to operate them
the balcony was nice to have, the japanese toilet was fun, the bath was huge and comfy, as was the whole bedroom
bed large and comfortable
the pool area was nice, with views over the race course - but irritating to have smoking and people smoking and kids screaming without anything done about it
gym looked good and could have a massage outside
breakfast was expensive 190 dhs (£35)

felt a bit concrete and unfriendly but the lifts were very speedy
out of town so had to use hotel taxi's which are always a bit more expensive

Room Tip: i had one on 9th floor that was close to the pool on 11th floor and close to the lifts

Dear guest,

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you had experienced some inconveniences during your stay with us. I will make sure that our Guest Relations Executives are reminded to escort all guests in order to explain our room features, as well as, ask our pool staff to communicate any hassles with our other guests discretely, who have unruly kids. We hope that this will not prevent you from giving us another opportunity to impress you on your next visit to Dubai.

Best regards,
Ademir Husagic
Hotel Manager

We stayed at the Meydan and have to say the rooms were excellent. The bathroom was wonderful. Just a little bit out of the way but if you want silence that's the place to stay. I would happily stay there again.

Dear guest,

We are glad to know that you have enjoyed serenity on your stay with us. We are actually just 8 minutes from the main commercial and business districts of Dubai. Taxis are available 24/7 at the hotel and we provide a complimentary shuttle bus to Dubai Mall and Mall of the Emirates.

Aside from horse-racing, we also have a lot of other activities, such golf-playing at our Meydan Golf Club, watch a movie at our Meydan IMAX Theatre, which is the biggest IMAX screen in the UAE today, or play tennis at our Tennis Academy. If you haven’t visited our Meydan Beach Club, you definitely have to come back as it’s one of the best in town.

We look forward to your return soon.

Best regards,
Ademir Husagic
Hotel Manager

We chose the Meyan for a 2 night “staycation” as we wanted a break but didn’t want to travel far for it. Meydan fitted the bill very well, and with the room overlooking the grassy aspect of the race track, it is a nice change for Dubai residents.
The rooms are very elegant, with the bathroom fitted out better than I have seen in any of the many 5* hotels I have stayed in, and the hotel is calm and classy as always.
We tried both the buffet and the steak restaurants and both were very good, and in the downstairs restaurant, Jared, who seems to be the manager there, is friendly and sociable and runs a tight ship.

Beatiful hotel, only let down by service and technical difficulties.

The touch panel lighting system in my room went haywire, turning lights on randomly. Not exactly what you want at 3 am. Maintenence came and switched off the lighting circuit breakers, leaving the switchboard panel open so I could at least turn on the lights if I needed them. Certainly not to be expected from a 5 star hotel.

I was promised it was all fixed, but sure enough, the next night exactly the same thing happened. Maintenence came again, this time however they locked the panel, leaving me without any lights at all. I had to call them back in the morning to turn on the lights again so I could take a shower.


Fingers crossed its fixed for tonight

The hotel is located directly at the horse race track in Dubai, a bit outside of the busy center. It offers large and luxurious rooms and very good service. Absolutely recommendable if you don't need to stay downtown.
