i stayed in Arabian park hotel for the duration of my 5 day Dubai trip.The experience was quite enjoyable;clean spacious room and good buffet breakfast which came with the room rates.There was free WiFi in the lounge but not in the room;a shame really cos the trend is that most hotels now have free in-room WiFi!The hotel staff are courteous and professional.There is also a small swimming pool which is very important when visiting a hot place like Dubai.The location is OK and to move around the city,the hotel concierge could arrange a cab for you.Dubai cabs are all metered and air-conditioned.
I liked Arabian park hotel,however the downside is the lack of free WiFi in rooms and the fact that their restaurant menu seems limited to the same few choices;day in,day out..,quite monotonous though tasty.If the menu could be more diversified,that would be great.I'll probably stay there again.

My family and I were stuck in Dubai for a long layover and emirates was nice enough to provide us accommodations free of charge so when we pulled up to the APH on the shuttle, my first thought was, "you get what you paid for and we didn't pay anything". I am estactic to say that my first impression was proved completely wrong! The outside of the hotel was totally misleading because once we were inside the staff and hotel was totally welcoming. The checkin procedure was a breeze and the lady at the front Desk was very pleasant to deal with! When we retired to our rooms were were surprised at how cozy and comfy the room was-and the view was perfect with the city lights at night! Since our stop was only about ten hours we didn't get to sleep all that much but the beds were nothing to complain about and were really comfortable. We went down to down to dinner pretty much soon after we arrived and the restaurant waitress was there to help us with everything. She was very attentive and kept the conversation going, making jokes with all of my family. Her happy attitude was greatly appreciated. The food selection was also excellent-I'm not sure how it is on a regular basis but we had a buffet style dinner with fried rice, beef stroganoff and many more other things-all of which were delicious! I had multiple servings of the stroganoff for sure! We finally retired to our rooms for the night, bellies full! Our wake up call for the transport back to DXB arrived promptly and we were quickly taken back to the airport well in time for our connecting flight. We had a great experience at the Arabian Parks Hotel and would definitely recommend it to anyone! The staff is very attentive and super nice and a joy to deal with after flying non stop for 14+ hours :) will be coming back again if I'm ever in Dubai!

Room Tip: We were given a room with a balcony and that had a great view facing the city!

Arriving at 3am, we both thought the hotel looked sad and dirty, however, once inside our views changed. Our check in was efficient and well handled.
The staff where always present, easy to find and exceptionally helpful.
The hotel is a bit "out of the way" but public transport in Dubai is bliss. The Metro station Jadaf is a 10 minute walk and taxis readily available.
We ordered lovely lunch from the brassiere, and where served outside by the pool edge.
The evenings where ended perfectly with the shisa at the pool side.
The staff will make us return to the Arabian Park Hotel - Well done

This is a very basic hotel, supposedly 3 stars, but questionable. We were allocated this hotel as part of a trip on Emirates airline (long stopover). It is good for the purpose of long stopovers, but not for a holiday. Food buffet is almost identical each meal - very Arab like. Hotel is clean and staff is helpful and friendly. Expect to pay in excess of 35AED for a beer and over 46AED in the bar. A clean and big swimming pool with towels.

it is moneys worth, not expensive but what is impt is prompt service & honesty & smiles of the staff to their guests. easy to locate & accessible to & from the malls by taxi, most likely you'ss never get lost. it was near to my 1st cousin office & residential (w/c is my primary reason to have a 2-night dubai extension on my way back to manila from a holy land pilgrimage).

We stayed at the Arabian Park for three nights in April and found the property to be excellent value for money. Staff were efficient and friendly. Some reviewers mention the inconvenient location of this hotel, however for us it was not a problem. Dubai is a fairly compact city and the hotel provides a regular shuttle bus service to the beach and city shopping malls as well as to the metro station so getting around was not at all difficult. Be aware that although there is a metro station near the hotel, there is no service yet. In our experience transport was not a problem - if we missed the shuttle bus it was easy to take a taxi as they seemed to drop off regularly at the hotel and were a fraction of the cost of the "hotel" taxis. Our room was quite plainly furnished but was clean and had a comfortable bed as well as all the basic amenities. At the time of our visit the hotel was undergoing extensive renovation of its public areas so that breakfast was served at the pool area. Breakfast itself was quite good but we did think that many dishes could have been hotter. On the whole, a good value option for a short stay in Dubai however if you are staying longer it would be wise to consider staying at one of the beach hotels.

Full disclosure ; This was the hotel choice offered to us by Emirates Air during a 9 hour layover. The hotel was basic but relatively new,clean and the rooms where large. Also bring some earplugs as the call to prayer starts very early and woke us up ( I still enjoy hearing it as it adds to the travel experience where ever I go ) . It's really hard to find fault when the room is free so we were really appreciative of Emirates Airlines for providing the room. I have to mention that the service from all staff members we encountered was astoundingly good.

Cons - location is a bit remote from anything other than the airport
- Beds where very "springy" although we were tired, so slept well anyway

Pros - excellent service by all staff members
- good breakfast for a budget hotel
- hard to complain when Emirates is offering free accommodation , transport and food .
- fast Wifi
- free shuttle buses to DXB, beach and various shopping malls

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room if the morning call to prayer wakes you up.
