“Good alternative to the terminal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

We went here for breakfast and it was a good alternative to the food courts in the terminal. We had the express breakfast which consists of 4 pastries (plain croissant, chocolate croissant, berry danish, and an apricot danish, together with a coffee and orange juice) for 45 dirham.
The toilets here were much better than those in the terminal - no queues, better facilities and a lot cleaner.
There is a non-smoking area with comfortable seating.

“Chill out, smoke & have a couple of pints.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

Tired of the entitled people in the business class lounge? You'll pay a price (it's still in an airport) but relaxed atmosphere, decent food and plenty to drink. WiFi is also available and the music is friendly country...this place is a staple of my Dubai travel regime.

“Good place to wait till boarding time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

If you want to get away from the busy shopping area at the airport, the Hub is a good option. The smoking area is normally pretty crowded, but on the otherside there is the non smoking area. Here it's normally much more quiet.
The food is good enough. Nothing really stands out, but compared to the fastfood chains it's a good place to sit, wait and relax. The staff is friendly enough, but service good improve a bit.
I had the sushi, sashimi and calamari rings. All were good enough, but in Dubai you are spoiled for choices and there are better places to eat. However, for an airport outlet, good enough and a pleasant stay.

“Proper place to smoke and relaxing.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

The HUB is located @ the Terminal 3 (departure - Duty free area), Dubai Int'l Airport, for Emirates Airlines only. It is on mezanine level, and sort of the edge of the shops and restaurant in duty free area. This Lounge has a it's own lift and stairs. This is the place for drink and smoke, but also for dine in. Their menu is mostly light food. They have two bars. The price of course is quite high, firstly I think because it's in the airport, secondly, they offer a nice lounge to chill and relax. For smoker, this is the proper place to smoke, rather than in a small cube smoking room.

“Quiet place to chill off”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

The Hub at Dubai airport is a nice place to chill off and away from the masses, have faster wi-fi than the free airport wi-fi, have draught beers and very few people around.
Food is just average but not expensive.
i spent few hours working on my laptop in peace.
