My husband and I attended a Pre Ramadan event at Meydan yesterday evening in the amazing Sky Bubble. We had the opportunity to sample the many delights that Meydan Hotel will be serving in the Sky Bubble for Iftar during the month of Ramadan.
The special installed décor was elegant ,the food was delicious, the views over Dubai's night Skyline breath taking!
Recommend to everyone looking for somewhere special for Iftar. Great price too.

What I liked :)
The reception welcome was very nice, camel toys for the kids, fruits, cakes and juice in the room was amazing.
The location of the hotel is far but for me it was good. Quite area, no traffic during my stay and Nearby mosque.
The size of the room is nearly double the size of other hotels, accommodate easily 2 baby beds. The bathroom was awesome, nice features for the shower, small Bathtub. Wonderful balcony and view except the weather.

What I didn't like :(
Need to speed up the On hold Payment. Still it is not released. Even i contacted the Hotel but didn't get reply.
Another thing, the valley parking needs improvements, especially at night, you keep waiting for long time for someone to take your car.

I definitely recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Higher floors for better view.

The Meydan is not characterized by anything that marks it out as distinctively Emirati or even Arabic and this is a missed opportunity. It is a lot of glass, standard rooms you find anywhere these days with a painting of a horse thrown in. During racing season it probably has some ambiance and the balconies would provide an uninterrupted view of the course. The rest of the time it is pretty dead. You need a car if you do not want to rely on overpriced taxis. Service is just satisfactory and the hotel seems to have a reactive stance with guests rather than a proactive one. The phones did not work so a trip to reception was made. The concierge came up, located what I wanted that was hidden in a wall totally unmarked, and proceeded to put on both the room television and the one in the bathroom - different channels and both at higher volume than was required. I could deal with the main television but he had made off with the remote for the smaller one. It took more than a small amount of pressure to get the duty manager upstairs. Breakfast is a buffet- again - nothing startling. In fact, rather less so given this is a 5-star establishment. The pool is very small and the spa facilities were not available on Fridays. This is a bit hopeless when many people go there for the weekend which includes a Friday.

Room Tip: All rooms overlook the race course.

Located near the race fields, the Meydan is a bit far away from every thing. The hotel is an immense facility which was almost empty at the time we were there.
Very nice room, good fitness center. Could not test the swimming pool due to the tight opening hours.
Decent food restaurant and very good 24/24 service. Good breakfast with sunny restaurant.

Dear guest,

Many thanks for your feedback and although the Meydan is situated in and surrounded by the tranquility of the race course, we have a distinct advantage of only being 8 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Sheikh Zayed Road and indeed the Dubai Mall.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future and I trust you will be able to enjoy and experience the many activities available, i.e. Meydan IMAX theatre, Meydan Golf Club, The Track, Qube Sports Bar and Restaurant, and many more.

Best regards,
Antony Treston

the meydan is a great hotel with a great service.

great room amenities and facilities, with a balcony and a nice view, housekeeping should have done a better job for a hotel this huge and stay away from the food I didn't like anything about it but other than that the service was exceptional.

if you are looking for a person to help you in this hotel just ask about Austin from reception he is excellent.

I stayed there for 5 nights in May 2014. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The whole theme of the hotel communicates royalty and being different. It's exactly 20 minutes from Dubai downtown. Perfect WiFi service, very quite and relaxing atmosphere, and fabulous F&B services.

For sure it doesn't have the same 'bling' as the Burj or some of the other more 'well known' hotels in the area, however it was so nice to be away from the hustle of the main area.
Definitely would stay here again just for the food which was amazing!
