“Great hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

We stayed here on honeymoon in May for six nights. The hotel is in an ideal location across the road from the dubai mall. The only disadvantage was the location of the pool there were alot of steeps down to it and the floor was wet sometimes. The food was very good especially in the english bar. I would stay here again.

The hotel consists of several buildings that include the hotel, apartments, suites and apartments.
We had a number of premium (308), with its own terrace. But after the first night, we changed the standard. The fact is that just below us is a bar, which worked until three o'clock in the morning, sleep is impossible. So we asked to higher and overpowered us on the 11th floor.

Hotel services at a level worthy breakfast. The room has everything, down to the ironing board with iron. Mini-bar was breaking from the proposed beverages. Prices naturally kus kus-(bank "Heineken" 0,33 l - 35 dirhams for the ruble, multiply by 7.7 and Pepsi - 18 dirhams).
On site are two swimming pools, the first depth of 1.55m, 1.80m second. The second pool must pass through the club of the hotel and very beautiful, green area. Swimming in the pool or sunbathing on a lounger not notice that you're practically in the heart of the metropolis.
Besides, the hotel has 4 restaurants (with the Lebanese, Indian, Latin cuisine) restaurant where breakfast and the evening themed dinner (250 dirhams) and the above mentioned bar, quite popular in Dubai, which has a large selection of draft beer.
In the opposite wing of the main entrance is a supermarket, exchange office and two cafes. In one of the few times we dined. The quality is good, prices are democratic (large pizza margarita - 31 dirhams).
Because our hotel is located in close proximity to Burj Dubai and Khalifa mall, we went several times to show the fountains (enchanting), rose twice to the observation deck at 124 Khalifa floor (tickets purchased in advance for 100 dirhams), and just strolling through the galleries the world's largest mall.

Stayed February 2012, traveled with friends

Al Murooj Rotana was a good choice for our recent stay during Ramadan. We booked an airport pickup since we were arriving late on a Sunday night. We were glad that we did. It was efficient and when we arrived at the hotel, we were treated like VIPs.
We booked a King premium room. My only grumble with the hotel was that it doesn't say on their website that all Premium king rooms are smoking rooms. We had requested a non-smoking room. Next morning we approached the reception about a possible room change, which was quickly given to us.
All staff at the hotel were very polite and helpful. We had breakfasts and one dinner in the hotel and were very happy with them.
It is situated just across the road from Dubai Mall. It seemed to be very convenient location.
Ramadan ended up being a good time to visit, because the hotel has very inexpensive rates and gave us free internet and discounted meals.

Room Tip: The premium King rooms are very spacious, with good bathrooms, but if smoking bothers you, some room...

My stay was in the apartments section the rooms were wide and the furnitures in good condition but I think if they make a nice showers in the bathrooms instead of the bath tub it will make the space of the bathrooms bigger which is really important for some people , and I hate the shower curtens who put them these days. They should change them to a fiber glass partitions it will be sooo neat . The house keeping need to be more cleen because some times they forget to empty our garbidge and refill empty Kleenex or put more tawels . Other than that it's very comfortable especially the beds , there room service food is good as well ( mushroom soup , ceaser salad , pasta with cream sauce ) They even can give u the Maya supermarket number (which next door to the hotel to order what ever u need for your kitchen and they deliver to your door, Fernandise did a great job with us as well and all the stuff were so helpful. I would come again.
