“Great location, upscale Ramada”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Everything about our stay at the Ramada was excellent- good location, good breakfast buffet, great facilities, health club, etc. Employees were helpful and courteous and bent over backwards to help us. Great value for the money compared to other hotels we've stayed at in Dubai.

Stayed here in August of 2011 for 5 nights and my room was great. Booked a package tour with Charming Asia Tours so don't know exactly how much the hotel itself cost, but I was happy with it and would stay again. The hotel itself is a 10 minute walk for the Mall of Emirates or you can take the hotel shuttle. Breakfast was great, room was big, pool was OK and do recommend this hotel for the price. The location itself may not be the greatest. Don't get me wrong, it's not that it's ghetto, but there are just not any restaurants or shops nearby and the closest is the mall 10 mins. away if walking. However, walking in the summer heat is not recommended.

booked this without much research and it was a good choice. The only issue i would have is that when i booked i asked for transfer from the airport to the hotel and was quoted AED150 (£30), was happy to pay, and despite our flight being delayed by 45 mins the driver was stil lwaiting. however, after a few days in dubai i realised that taxis are dirt cheap and a return fare from hotel to airport was only AED60 (£12).

the hotel itself is quite new and well decorated - 2x bars = 1 which is no more than a Brit pub / bar with quiz night and all the stuff you would expect back home. the other was much nicer and an outdor bar with Arabic experience.

3x restaurante - Indian, Chinese and Arabic - didn't try any of them

Our room was well furnished and roomy. The mattresses were very hard and pillows large and hard which didn't make for a brilliant night sleep- but overall well laid out. also as our oom was by the lift and over the Mezze (Arabic bar) it was a bit loud - every time a lift arrived at our floor we could hear the 'ding' and the noise fro mthe bar was audible.

Pool on the roof was good - not many relaxers but whilst we were there not many people so supply could match demand.

Staff were really friendly and helpful.


Breakfast was self serve buffet with the usual Muslim chickem sausage and beef bacon, but on the positive loads of fruit, omelettes cooked to order and plenty of beans, egg, nuggets and breads

Overall - great value, a little bit out of towm, but nowhere is central in Dubai. Very well placed for Mall of The Emirates - AED 6.50 in a cab, although the min fare in AED 10

Room Tip: not over the bar, and away from the lifts

This Hotel is in al Barsha not far away of the Mall of the Emirates incl. Ski Dubai. Nice an clean. without balcony rooms. At the top you can find a small pool with fantastic view. If you want a Hotel in Dubai for your first trip, this a good place to stay.

Room Tip: pleas check all offers in the internet

the room was spacious and had all the things you expect from 4 star hotel, but the smell was not so good even though it was non-smoking room!
location was average, although not far from a big shopping centre, but walking in the 40+ degrees c heat was tough! and it was their winter!
staff was polite, but didn't handle problems well, no follow through! i thought our room came with free wifi as it said on our print-out, but they disputed this and we just settled for the lobby's computers! i think hotels that don't give free wifi in rooms are REALLY BACKWARD!
pool & spa, was adequate, good they had life guard on duty even during the night!
overall, our experience could be better given it's a 4 star of an international chain!

Found this hotel purely by chance as part of an Emirates package at a very good rate that included breakfast. You won't be disappointed, the rooms are modern, comfortable and clean. The staff are all keen to please, nothing is too much trouble for them. The rooftop pool is small but clean and well looked after. Food that we tried was always well presented and at a reasonable cost. Loads to do in the local area, the Emirates mall is a 5 - 10 minute walk from the hotel.

Thank you, very pleased to have stayed there.

Room Tip: Three of the floors are non smoking, if that is your preference be sure to ask for a non smoking roo...
