Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Media City

Certificate of Excellence

If you are headed to Dubai Internet City / Media City, then you really cant go wrong with this hotel. Its pretty central, so you can walk to 50% of the businesses, and its a very short taxi ride to the rest. A 15 minute walk to Marina Walk, and 15 more to JBR.

The restaurants are also very good. Breakfast in the lobby is second to none. Certo is great italian, and there is also a terrific lounge/bar across the other side of the hotel. To top it all off, great outdoor bar up on 8th floor. Pool is nice too.

Rooms are decent, modern, and staff pretty attentive. All in all, its a great business or long stay hotel, and decent from a tourist perspective.

Big fan of this hotel ... cant go wrong.

Twice I have stayed at this hotel now and other than convenience for our office it has nothing to offer other than if you are interested in the expat girls that use the roof top bar. The rooms are small and the carpet looks filthy. It is one of a few times that I used hotel slippers because I did not want to catch anything. The breakfast in the club lunge (which is not open on a Friday) was passable but not brilliant. The breakfast on the ground floor was better than the club lounge to be honest.

Dear Valued Guest,
We respect your comments beyond doubt and we are contrite that with all certainty you have felt such uneasiness in our hotel.
It is sad, however, that you have ruled out staying with us, in the future.
My team and I have reviewed every aspect of your concern. Regarding our carpets, our process it to change them systematically every 5 years. They are shampooed and sanitized per each season or when required, and vacuumed daily. We apologize that they did not appear in top condition. Our room size might appear smaller than massive 5 star hotel room in Dubai. Our hotel was built with business in mid, surrounded by the thousands of companies constituting the Media and Internet Cities. The average length of stay is a couple of nights only.
Our Business Class lounge breakfast is by nature an "extended Continental" mini buffet, with speed in mind for our business class room guests who don't have time to go to the main dining room. There, the "Super Breakfast" wide choice and live cooking takes place. It is the reason why we close it on weekend Friday. On such day guests prefer to take leisurely time and wider choice.
Thank you again for sharing your constructive feedback.
I still hope to have the pleasure of stay with us in the future.
Should you decide so, please contact me directly to book your room.

We visited Dubai to catch up with friends who live in Media City which is why we chose this hotel/location.

It's a nice modern hotel and we had a good time here however it is definitely designed for business and professional travellers so the décor, layout, and general vibe of the place are along those clinical lines.

The rooms were very nice and modern albeit quite small and functional however not a lot of space otherwise. The bathroom was average size as well and just large enough my wife and I could utilise at the same time.

The beds were comfy and we slept well in them with no concerns or noise distractions we noticed.

The swimming pool on the top floor was a good size and didn't seem to have many visitors to it so we got some nice relaxing in the fun, with some food ordered along with some nice views of the surrounds in each direction.

All in all a recommended hotel for business travellers - but a couple could enjoy their time here if they wanted a quieter experience and some downtime.

First, you need to know Dubai will blow you away. WOW, this was nothing I ever expected. It is a cross between Disney, Las Vegas, Chicago and New York City. It is spotless, the people are fantastic, and it seems as though every detail is accounted for. If you are looking for the middle-eastern experience, you will not find it in Dubai, it is very western.

Okay, now about the hotel. I was in Dubai on business for several days. My office is within walking distance of the hotel so that is why I stayed there. The staff was outstanding. They are as attentive and professional as any 5-star hotel. The facility is nice, the rooms are nice, and I had no complaints. Maybe one.... when I checked out, the rate on my room nearly doubled the last night. It was not even a full night, i checked out at 8pm and they would not even give me a half-day rate. I was not aware that this would happen and told them so. My bill was very high with meals and drinks etc.... I entertained some customers and co-workers at one of the bars. When I brought this to the desk clerks attention, I fully expected him to ask the manager for an adjustment. Instead, he told me why I was wrong, and that there would be no change. Obvioulsy, this irritated me enough that I am writing about it ...

Spa was nice, i had a massge which i would give a 7 out of 10. Just about as good as you will receive at any hotel.

Overall, the hotel was a great business hotel, if your business is close by. I would not stay there with my family because there is nothing close by for entertainment or food. You do want to spend the extra for a business class room that gives you access to the business lounge. They had a full bar, coffee and nice light food. Close by means walking distance.... Because of my check-out I will likely go to the Hilton on the beach next time and simply take a cab to my office. However, I would not hesitate to stay at this location again and would recomend it to other travellers.

Room Tip: Definetly take a business room so you have access to the lounge. It is a great place to meet or rel...

Dear Valued Guest,
I must say, Dubai is yes a fantastic place. The only catch is the weather though (summer). Anyways, you know I and my team feel appeased whenever our guests come back to us with satisfied remarks. And thank you for leaving such beautiful comment about our staff, even for the spa and the hotel itself. On the other hand, I have shared your comment to our staff with regards to how they handled your request, rest assured that we will make a review of what happened and the same unacceptable response will not happen again.
In spite of you saying you will choose another hotel, we will still hope for your next visit with us. See you then!

Stayed here for 4 nights recently on a business trip. Overall the hotel is of a good quality and in a good location.

Positives - very friendly and helpful staff, they can't do enough for you. Stayed in the business lounge which was a real treat and great value for money..ok, I wasn't actually paying but the cost to upgrade was offset by breakfast costs and the fact that you could relax in comfort anytime.

Negatives, very noisy on the Thursday night I stayed before check out, a private function on the floor above was way too loud, impossible to sleep and despite numerous calls to ask when it was ending was just told it would be finished in 30 minutes, this happened 3 times! Seeing other reviews these functions seem to be fairly common....

On check in was asked to sign a piece of paper which could have been construed as a standard acceptance of the hotel terms, when I questioned it the guy said it's ok Sir, just sign it and no need to fill out any other details. I questioned it again and it turned out to be an application for a hotel loyalty card. These guys are obviously bonused on getting you to sign up and I wasn't happy with the manner and tone of this guy when I said no or being pushy to sign up!

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your comments posted after your last stay at our hotel.
I have passed on your positive ones regarding our staff attitude.
As to the noise, we realize the difficulty to combine the peaceful rest of our guests with the appeal of this trendy roof top outlet.
I am currently in the process of purchasing a new sound system, with upgraded sound buffers for the bass.
I hope that will not deter you form returning to our hotel.

I stayed here in July and returned in November on business. It's a very stylish hotel with comfortable beds, tea and coffee making facilities and mini bar. I ate in the Chef's House restaurant and loved the desserts selection! I ordered breakfast room service one day and was disappointed the toast was cold and pale. There was a lot of noise from the Roof Top bar, which can be heard in your room.

I tried to go into Icon for a drink but was met with a cloud of smoke which put me off. I'd recommend upgrading to the Business Class room, which gives you access to the Executive lounge with complimentary food and drink. Complimentary shuttle bus to Dubai Mall is a nice touch!

This is for the most part a business hotel although tourist activities are not fare away.
Rooms are well fernished and the beds were great, or was it that 12 houur flight? :-)
Food service and the business lounge provided good service and high quality. The Bar on the roof was loud and fun, but hard to have a conversation there.
The service staff were all friendly and helpful.
Internet was good.
I would recomend this hotel for a good stay in Dubai unless you want to be on the beach!

Room Tip: Balcony rooms are nice!
