STAFF - Everyone was so wonderful and welcoming - reception, concierge, cafe moka staff etc. We were always greeted with a smile and a hello in the morning and when leaving the hotel were wished a pleasant day! When we arrived and were leaving, the concierge wouldn't even let us touch our suitcases, they did all the hard work - fab service. I've stayed in a lot of good hotels and this is the first time I'd expereinced this. The ladies who worked during the breakfast buffet also need a shout out as they were lovely :)

LOCATION - Brillaint for deira shopping centre. It's a straightforward 3 minute walk - literally. We found ourselves in this mall many times throughout the week, really lively, fun atmosphere. Other nearby locations -
* Gold/Old/Perfume souks - 15 mins taxi - around 15 dirhams
* Dubai Mall - 30 mins taxi - around 25-30 dirhams
* Dubai festival shopping mall - 15 mins - around 15 dirhams
We travelled to these places using the local taxis, not the ones found outside the hotel. Jumeriah area is quite far out from this hotel but if u go on the hop on/off tour bus (starting from deira mall) you get to see everything with the opportunity to stop off.

ROOMS - Kitchenettes were extremely convinient, mum especially loved the washing machine haha. The tv had a good selection of both english and arabic channels, we found a good programme/film to be on almost every night. Beds were extremely comfortable as well. Nice spaced rooms with lovely decor.

THINGS WORTH MENTIONING -

* We had a room with a connecting door which was a pain if next door was extremely loud. We had a child who more or less constantly screamed for ages in the evening which eventually led to us changing rooms. Hotel staff were fine about this and even though new room had connecting door, no problems were encountered :)
* Work was taking place outside the hotel from the which the noise could be heard around 10am, didnt really bother us as we were always up by then and getting ready to go out. But trust me when I say, you will see work taking place EVERYWHERE in dubai!
* Brilliant breakfast - croissants, muffins, pastries, toast, sausages, hash browns, beans, eggs, omellete station, cereal, juice, fruit and so much more.
* Specific times allocated for women to use fitness facilities

Rihab Rotana suites is designed for long staying guests and the room comes equipped with a washing machine, microwave , crockery and cutlery besides the other basics. Rooms are comfortable and clean with good housekeeping service.
The F&B is pathetic with a limite menu and even then the quality of food is just ridiculous, and it includes the food available in the breakfast buffet as well.
The location is nice as being walking distance from the City Centre (a shopping mall) where you have food and entertainment options.
Staff is friendly and offer assistance promptly.

The Rihab's rooms are not as big as some other apartment-hotels in Dubai I've stayed in, but a lot of Details are right; the furniture doesn't feel like you've seen it before somewhere else, you have a real window to look out, the breakfast is pretty good if you like european style breakfast, staff is very friendly, and (very important): the A/C is very quiet on the lowest fan setting, you can hardly hear it.

I stayed in the Rihab for two weeks; compared to other hotels I felt much more as being home as in other Dubai hotels I've stayed at so far which felt much less like home. I would like to be back here for the next trip.

I stayed at the RIhab Rotana for seven weeks during June and July 2008. I would thoroughly recommend it for that period of time. The rooms are a reasonable size and very well maintained. The staff are flexible about when the rooms can be cleaned at the weekend. The staff are all very helpful and courteous. Right from the porters through to management. The gym is well maintained if basic and the pool the same. I was made to feel consistently welcome and my requirements were met at al parts of my stay. If you are looking for something that's a bit more like home for a period of time, the Rihab Rotana is the place for you. The only recommendation I would make is that you ensure you have a room that does not have a connecting door to a suite - they're not soundproof!!

An above average, a bit small hotel, therefore more personal, Very clean, modern/contemporary rooms. Attention to detail, extremely friendly and helpful staff.

We were a large group of 13, but the hotel staff was most accomodating to all of our needs with a smile on their face at all times. We ranged in age from 73 to 9 yrs and all were content. Walking distance as in 5-7 mins to City Centre shopping mall, which is one of the starting points for the City Bus tour. Overall hotel isn't over priced either. Nice roof top pool.

Only down side of the hotel is that only one floor reserved for non smokers. So if the sensitivity to smoke is high, then book and confirm a non smoking room in advance.
