Stayed here in March 2014. I used this hotel as a stopover for two nights before traveling on to Bangkok. The hotel is clean tidy, great rooms, Pool, gym and steam room. The hotel is two minutes away from the metro. The easiest way to travel around Dubai.

The hotel is located at the corner of Dubai Internet city and therefore is reasonable choice for staying only if you are on business trip to any Internet/Media city resident companies.
Hotel consists of 2 towers so first advice re: room booking is to book one in the tower where reception is, otherwise there's a walk (to 2nd floor then across the bridge) to your room.

Standard rooms are small (think of other Radisson Blu/Holiday inn hotels). Bedroom will have shower cubicle and no bath. Most disappointing design feature is to have (opaque) window from the bathroom that illuminates the bed each time someone turns the lights in bathroom on. So I can really recommend this hotel for singles only - if your partner will need to use bathroom at night (s)he will either have to do it blind, or will likely wake you up.

Half of the rooms face quite busy street with street noise can be heard quite noticeably at least as high as 6th floor - so if you are light sleeper, then ask for the room facing other direction.

There are couple of bars/restaurants in the hotel, with the buffet breakfast/buffet dinner served in one of them (closest to the reception). Another restaurant is Italian and there are 2 lounges (bars). I've used one for lunch/dinner (Icon lounge) and food quality/prices were reasonable. Buffet breakfast costs AED 110 when purchased on a day or AED 95 when pre-booked at the check-in. Spread and food quality is reasonable and is in line with other Radisson Blu hotels.

There is minibar in the room with selection of items, including alcohol beverages priced at (AED): Beer 37, spirits 55-66, wine 60, soft drinks 22-27, snacks 17-27. My room had 2 bottles of water replenished daily.

Hotel has business lounge so you may consider staying in business class room to get a benefit of using it.

Internet is free and reasonably fast (Skype without video works just fine, stutters a little with video).

There are 2 swimming pools size of bathtub (ca 2x5m) and desk chairs around them - mostly deserted. Gym is reasonably well equipped and has steam room.

There is absolutely nothing to do around, but Dubai Marina is short ride away (AED 10 by taxi). Dubai Mall/Burj Khalifa area is ~30 minutes away and taxi will cost you AED50).

There are often queues at the check-in/check-out desk but they checked me in earlier (at my 8am arrival) and provided late check-out until 3pm on the date of departure.

Room Tip: ask for the room in same tower as reception to save on walking/need to use 2 elevators ask for a ro...

Dear Valued Guest,
I would like to thank you for choosing Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Media City for your recent stay.
It is indeed that our goal is 100% guest satisfaction with a unique “YES I CAN” experience to all our valued guests. Though, I feel regretful that you are not fully pleased with your overall experience in our stunning and stylish hotel in a convenient location.
With regards to the opaque window in the bathroom, in fact it was created in a distinctive design along with comfortably and quite rooms while generated in a double glazed window type. But I agree that you have a good point. I am not sure how we can solve it though.
Certainly, to welcome you and serve again in the near future.
Sincerely,
Francois Galoisy

Perfect location if you have business in the Internet City area, nice rooms (with really great bathrooms). Not too spacious but some rooms have a balcony which is really nice to have when the weather isn't too hot. I stayed in a business room and really appreciated the espresso machine. Great breakfast buffet and very friendly staff - happy to have stayed here and will probably stay again during next visit.

Def not a holiday hotel. Very much business orientated. Staff very friendly and room clean with usual facilities bit on the small side. 2 small pool areas both virtually empty all day with no atmosphere. Nowhere to go of an evening unless you want to walk 900 mtr to the metro to go to the marina area or any of the malls. Overall disappointing location this time compared to previous visits to Dubai.

Thank you for choosing Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Media City for your recent stay.It is our endeavour to deliver a unique “YES I CAN” experience to all our valued guests. At this situation, it is rewarding to know that you appreciated and well convinced with the services of our staff.
Definitely, pools can be considered a bit small for refreshing dash located on our roof top sundeck over viewing the Palm and on lower shadier level. The hotel is in a convenient location, accessible to taxi and public bus. New Dubai Tramway will start operating from this October, with a station at a 5 minute walk towards Marina and JBR.
Hoping to welcome you again in your next visit in Dubai.

Very nice room (with very comfy bed!) / bathroom, great food. Big range of different foods for breakfast (but no veggies :/ Nice roof bar. Not very fast internet connection. Business center is fine, we only had problems with air conditioning. Additional features like pool and spa are also fine. Staff basically very helpful and kind, with some exceptions at reception desk.

Go for the business class room. Access to business lounge with finger foods and drinks. Location is perfect if you have meetings around internet city or media city. Close to Marina and a 5 min taxi to the emirates mall.
