Millennium Airport Hotel Dubai
Ranked #182 of 565 Hotels in Dubai
Reviewed December 1, 2008

We stayed at the Millenium Airport hotel for one night between flights. The transfer by their own bus was quick and smooth (they have their own desk at the far end of the airport, clearly signed)
The staff were very pleasant and the large room was excellent although your sleep may be disturbed by aircraft noises at night. We had an expensive ok snack including an average glass of white wine and a nice pot of tea. We failed to get our requested wakeup call.

The room rate was very expensive, 1980 dhms (approx £362, invoice says "room charges " so presumably doesn't include breakfast. This may partly be due to the weak value of the pound.


I think that Dubai has had its day - the hotel was very quiet. They are still building in Dubai, hopefully the hotel prices will come down as there is more competition.

You should be aware that this is in fact two hotels.
And the gardens mentioned in the description are now a building site.

The commercial wing appears quite smart from the outside - but it connects with a more basic hotel - the EK wing (with separate reception and buffet restaurant) used by Emirates to accommodate passengers in transit.

I was placed in the "EK" wing of this hotel for 2 nights by Emirates because my flight schedule was disrupted by protests in Bangkok Airport. As a place to sleep waiting for a flight this hotel is vastly superior to camping out in the nearby airport. My room was relatively spacious, high ceiling and clean. Just lacking many of the usual amenities because of the in and out nature of transit passengers.

The reception desk is obviously very good at processing large numbers of people - but beware of the Emirates service desk which is staffed by people who have no concept of customer service.

The big plus of this hotel if you don't want to be in Dubai is the frequent free shuttle to Terminal 3 which allows you to arrange flights and wait for standby places.

We were staying in the Millennium for only one night as part of an Emirates stopover. We arrived just before midnight and had a flight out the next morning at 8:00am. At check-in, the counter staff went over details with us such as our flight details for tomorrow and what time we would like our wake up call. They had arranged a call for 6am but I requested an earlier call for 5:30am as I wanted to squeeze in a spot of shopping at the airport.

After this we went to our room. The room is more than adequate for an overnight stopover. Clean, comfy beds, nice shower etc etc. The problem came the next morning.

My boyfriend and I were dead asleep when our phone rang (the wake up call) telling us it was time to check out. I sat up and checked my phone - it was 7:20am. We freaked out and ran out of our room so fast down to the check out desk. When I got there, I was not happy. I told the staff member our wake up call was for two hours ago and we were not contacted any earlier and there is a good chance we are going to miss our flight. All 10 other staff members behind the counter went silent and looked away. The one guy who would talk to me suggested a cab - I asked if he was going to pay for it and he promptly suggested the bus. The bus arrived 1 minute later so we jumped on. Turns out there was another traveller sitting next to us for the same flight that they failed to wake up. We made our gate by 10 minutes.

Overall, for an airport stopover hotel, the wake up call incident is unforgiveable. They of all people should realise the importance of getting such details correct.

Emirates put us up here for a stopover. Very basic but large room. Interconnecting door to next room meant we could hear everything going on there so not easy to get to sleep. Good large bathroom and great breakfast to get us on our way for the next leg of our journey. Persistent wake up calls. Really close to the airport and completely buffered from external noise so all in all very convenient for stopover - especially with shuttle bus every half hour.
Note: If you only have a short stopover - get your luggage checked through to your final destination from your departure port and carry on an overnight bag so you don't have to wait to collect your luggage when you arrive in Dubai as it can take up to an hour longer just to get your luggage. For a short stay it's just not worth it.

On a 9 hour layover in Dubai Emirates booked me at the 'Commercial Wing' - which is not the rundown area where EK usually puts up their passengers. It was a surprisingly large room, though not a 5* rated hotel I found it more pleasant than some of the higher rated properties in Dubai. Nice place, convenient location to the airport and complimentary limousine service (by the hotel not Emirates) to the airport!

One of the advantages this hotel has is its proximity to the Airport. However, building work is on-going in the area so getting to and from it can be a bit of a journey.
Freindly staff. Good restraunts and bars and the rooms are, if a little worn in some areas, very comfortable.
Other services, like laundry, room service, etc good although room internet access (wired) is expensive.

A colleague and I had to go to Sharjah for a lunch meeting on a Sunday - hotels were all busy for a conference in town so we flew in on the morning and back out that night. However the Millenium gave us an 8 hour room - in at 8am and out by 8 pm.

This worked a treat - we had a big room with two double beds to get some shut eye after the flight, nice bathroom to freshen up in (but poorly lit) and great location. No aircraft noise despite proximity to airport.

Great value and ideally placed for what we needed as a drop in facility.

The sports bar is popular with some old soak ex pats but the Italian restaurant on site is good.

The pool is closed for a rebuild so we are not staying there in December on a 7 day trip
