Though I've reviewed this hotel earlier...i need to keep telling and recommending this hotel to anyone visiting Dubai for any purpose. This hotel deserves a solid 5 star rating and a membership within the leading hotels of the world. It's simply impossible to point out a single negative point.
I wont repeat the earlier points in my previous reviews, the Al Bustan Rotana simply exceeds expectations and is a hidden jewel in Dubai.

The hotel has seen better days. I have stayed there before several years ago and thought that it was better. Nothing glamorous or impressive now. The views from the rooms called “city view” could mean you are looking at the air-conditioning equipment of the hotel or the buildings next to it, especially if you are located on the first floor. You need to pay more to get a pool view, which is a better view but I guess that the room itself is the same. Always ask for a room in a higher floor but the hotel has only 4 or 5 floors. The flat screen TV is small in Dubai hotels standards. The toiletries in the bathroom are Rotana branded but are generic and made in China. The carpet in the room was old.

The equipment in the gym is somewhat outdated and maybe has not been changed since the hotel opened more than 10 years ago. On 2 occasions of working out, there was no attendant or trainer available in the gym. There is a medium sized outdoor pool and 2 indoor squash courts.

Internet is expensive at almost USD 25 per day.

Food in the main restaurant has a good variety and is generally good. Having various chefs from different countries also helps in having a good variety. However, if you eat breakfast there for 3 consecutive days you will feel quite bored because there are no noticeable changes from day to day.

Sitting in the lovely lobby and listening to live piano music drinking a cup of coffee is quite relaxing.

If you can get a good rate there in comparison to other hotels in Dubai, then stay there. If not, then opt for newer properties that have better facilities even for a little bit more money.

Room Tip: Get a pool view room or a room on a higher floor.

I stayed here for 2 nights with my mum on an extended stopover. The hotel is close to the airport and is ideally located for short stays. There is a Rotana desk right by the arrivals (along with other hotels) and we were greeted by friendly staff. Our ride to the hotel was quick and the hotel only has luxury cars so it was very comfortable. The entrance is beautiful and has the wow factor. Our room was clean, spacious and comfortable, exactly what you would expect from this kind of hotel. The staff are polite and incredibly helpful. I lost the key to the lock on my suitcase and they helped me to open it up! I think if anyone has had a bad stay here it must have been a one-off as nothing is perfect 100% of the time. Taxis are cheap in Dubai so getting to the main attractions was not a problem and you can ask the desk to order a hotel or regular (cheaper option) taxi. The pool and changing rooms were also in great condition. The food is also delicious! I will be recommeding this hotel and definitely going back when I can. Thank you Rotana for making this a memorable trip for me and my mum.
