Being in Dubai for a relax weekend I chose this hotel for its close location to the airport. The room was spacious and very well kept. Too bad that no free internet is provided. Nice swimming pool with friendly service. All Staff is friendly. What really impressed me was the choice of food at the breakfast buffet ! a very nice touch was the presentation of a honey comb with a jar beneath it collecting the honey from the comb ! I can recommend this hotel.

I decided to stay here as I had to meet my wife at two a' clock in the night at the airport which is only five minutes away and we didn't have to drive all the way back to Abu Dhabi. We stayed for two nights and it was an excellent choice. The staff is very friendly and helpful and they made us feel comfortable and at home. The breakfast and dinner were outstanding and they catered for everyone's taste. The alcoholic beverages however, are a bit expensive. We will definitely stay here again next time.

Room Tip: "Choose a room with a balcony or one that goes out on the pool area."

I stayed here with my family when we arrived in Dubai. We stayed here for 2 nights. We chose to stay here because it was just near the airport, walking distance actually if not too hot. Our room was two connecting room. I am really a fan of their beds even to other rotana properties. They served us with fresh fruit juices plus I love that it was connecting room. Very spacious and internet was really good. Services is excellent too.

Will stay here again.

If you have to stay close to the airport.. The metro comes pretty close...
The chief concierge SHIVA... Is phenomenal.. He made arrangement for us that made our stay so memorable!
The lobby of this hotel is gorgeous.. greeted by dates and tea... nice touch
The restaurant is not open early so you will have to do room service if you have an early flight.Cars are waiting for a very fair rate.
Room are small but well appointed and comfortable.. nice turn down service.

Room Tip: i was on the first floor.. easy access to pool !

I recently had a short stay here - just a few hours. In the short time I was there I found the staff to be very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. I stayed in a comfortable double room with a pool view. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was well appointed.

I stay in Dubai every couple of months and its usually for a couple of nights. and therefore I was happy with little service, I like its location close to the airport, the hotel is getting older and Rotana seem to think they have other hotels that are more important.
