“Convenient place to stay near Dubai Mall, with friendly and helpful staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Although I didn't receive a return email from the hotel regarding hotel transfer and tour recommendations, I had a lovely stay at the Radisson Blu downtown Dubai. Maybe the hotel should add a specific email address to their website for such questions. On arrival the staff were very helpful and inviting, assisting me with all of my needs, a special thanks to Kareem Ahmed Ali. The tour was organised and was a lot of fun. I went with Rayna Desert Safari and our driver Mustafa was fantastic, thank you for a great stay.

Spent 3 nights at this hotel last week ( 23rd -26th) with my family

We had two adjoining rooms 1502/1503, spacious, clean & with very good air conditioning (important when outside temp is 45* C).

Breakfast was as per Radisson standards but they serve the same every day, could have made a few changes, gets to you when you find the same spread every morning.

i say worth a visit because of the exceptional front desk team, efficient, courteous & very helpful, especially Chad & Nalin.

The G.M Mr Mohammad Yassime paid personal attention to ensure that our requests were met, thank u.

Only real drawback that i can list is that there is construction going on all around this property & there is a perpetual traffic jam outside, takes a few minutes to clear the lights.

There is a hotel drop to the Dubai mall which is just 7-10 min away & just cost 10 AED to get back by Taxi.

This is a good option for those planning to spend major time at Dubai Mall or have work in the vicinity.

20 minutes drive gets you to Deira, Bur Dubai etc.

Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Try the Business class rooms, they better amenities.

Hotel used to be really good, but general upkeep has need been done. It is very conveniently situated next to Dubai mall and only 20 minutes from airport. the bar and breakfast is really good, but upkeep, cleanliness in room is not of 4 star quality. i.e Bedlinen was dirty, Towels are old and torn and carpet is dirty. I really loved staying here, but recent visit was rather dissappointed.

The room , the service and the food was great , nithing to complain on that matter. The staff is very friendly. Howevet i would like to warn you that the hotel is place in the central of a a very busy highway crossing, and travelling with a taxi in or out seemed like the only option for me . The hotel also has private cars that gives you fixed rates, which is always way above the price you would pay if you took a metered dubai taxi. Also , the drivers of thosr private cars there had a cocky attitude and remarks that i did not appreciate.

If you are looking for a good place near the dubai mall and a good view then this is the place. The price was reasonable and the hotel was very much accessible from various locations.

The staff were friendly and helpful. I particularly liked the bar and the swimming pool.

The quality of the actual room was not the greatest and the walls were paper thin. It was like the people in the next room (i.e. conversations, TV programs, etc.) were in our room instead of theirs......until 3:30 am! Plus we were several floors up....but directly above the outside lounge and the music was a problem....again because the walls were so paper thin. The air conditioning controller was so confusing that we had to finally call maintenance to just get it turned down...and then we stood on a chair to redirect the vents from blowing directly on the bed freezing us out....and this was an upgraded room! That night was pretty uncomfortable. New subject....meals in the main restaurant were plentiful and tasty. The upstairs inside/outside lounge was pleasant in the evening, but the service was not very good around noon time. Even though construction in the immediate area makes it necessary to take transportation to the Dubai Mall, the hotel provides a free shuttle bus service that was very handy. The free shuttle makes multiple trips daily which was not only a great perk financially....but also very convenient. The one definite positive experience was Azam Khan at the front desk. Azam made up for what the hotel lacked! Azam may honestly be the most courteous, helpful, and professional front desk individual we have ever encountered on any of our travels. He was great!!! Even with everything we did not like....we would still go back just because of Azam.

Extremely disappointed by this hotel, rate was not too cheap so I was expecting a decent Hotel in line with Radisson Blu standards.
What I found was a very poor service (lobby, reception, room cleaning) and very dirty room.
After they forgot to clean my room one day, I complained and they upgraded me to a better room. Nevertheless I will never come back and will not suggest this hotel to anybody.
The location of the Hotel is too far to walk to Dubai Mall, and the only way out is by taxi.
Restaurants and pool are desolate and always empty.
