We had an overnight stay in Dubai because we had a layover of over 10 hrs. Copthorne hotel was fully booked so Emirates sent us to Al Khaleej Palace Hotel for one night based on their Dubai Connect Service. We arrived very late at the hotel, around midnight, check-in was fast and we had to let our passports at the reception. Like most of the hotels in Dubai also this one has a temperature of around 15* C inside the room due to high usage of A/C. We switched off A/C inside the room but the temperature remained the same and we had to sleep with warm clothes in the middle of the desert. Dinner was good we had sheep stew, chicken sausages and potatoes together with a beer and everything was included in Emirates plane ticket. Very strange but the mineral water is chargeable so please pay attention to the list of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks before ordering. But the most unpleasant situation we faced was the loud music which was played inside the hotel all night and I could barely sleep. Ask reception for wake-up call if you have a morning flight.
In the morning we had an average breakfast, we took our passports back and we left at 6 am to the airport. The shuttle operates each hour.More
