We really enjoyed our stay at Gloria, Dubai. As we stayed here for three nights and with a very packed schedule so we hardly manage much time to spend at the room or at the hotel but still we enjoyed our stay here.
We have checked as a very big group of @ 66 people on 9th February,2013 so may be due to the reason it takes a long time to checked in which is really somehow a tiresome and boring process after a long journey and jetlag , kids are really tired and we want to fresh up.
We are accommodate at an apartment at 37th floor with a nice city view balcony and the rooms and the entire apartment is very specious and well decorative with all amenities, kitchen is well equipped with utensils, microwaves and fridge and washing machine is also available at the apartment. Bathroom is good and specious but toiletries provided are not up to mark. The hotel also has a small kid’s park at 8th level which kids are really enjoyed.
As we are four in number with 2 adults and 2 kids so we need one extra cot as per our package with the SOTC which they didn’t provided we noticed at night and after communicating with reception at night they told it will need an extra charge of 100 Dhs. per night as they didn’t get any massage from SOTC for arranging an extra cot otherwise I will have to contract with the tour operators for the same, but as it was @ 11.30pm and difficult to contract the tour managers at the night so they arrange the same for us as complimentary for the night which I must appreciate what they have done very quickly as a guest priority.
Regarding breakfast you have a vast choice of items and delicious dishes of western and eastern menus which we really enjoyed. Regarding ISD calls avoid to using from room as it is very costly and almost double from the actual charge and if you want to purchase a simcard don’t buy it from the supermarket at the hotel lobby they will take 100 Dhs. which you will get at 50 Dhs. from just outside the hotel at DU shop at 50 Dhs and don’t miss to visit the Sky Dubai at “Mall of Emirates” which is very close from the hotel and take hardly 6 minutes by metro and 10 minutes by taxi (they take 18-20 Dhs.).
In altogether we enjoyed and relaxed our stay at Hotel Gloria, Dubai and I recommend this Hotel for Family stay at Dubai.
