“Nice place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2008

The Majestic Hotel is a really nice place to stay with a reasonable price to pay. The rooms and hotel is very clean. The bathrooms are nice and clean also. The staff is very friendly and willing to help you. The location is great also you are near Meena Bazar and the Gold Souk. Overall I was pleased with my stay in December 2007.

A combination of rude guests, poor service at breakfast and the worst lifts we have ever experienced meant that the Majestic left us slightly disappointed. Perhaps staying over the New Years Eve period led to service levels being poorer than usual, however we refused to let this spoil what was otherwise a fantastic stay in Dubai

If you stay in this hotel be prepared to have to rely on sometimes expensive taxis to be able to get anywhere. We tried walking to the beach one day and struggled to find pavements to walk on due to all of the building work.

We spent 10 days in Majestic and overall experience is very good. The hotel is clean, nicely decorated, staff helpful, although the reception guys can be very slow. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable (especially beds!), with big bathrooms, coffee making facility...The only downside to the room is that you cannot open the balcony door and beside the a/c you cannot get any fresh air in the room.

Breakfast is so-so, at first it seems you have plenty of choices, but after a few days you realize that every single day you eat the same. It happens often that there is no juice or bread or coffee cups - the restaurant staff is not used to having too many people at the same time in the brekfast room.

Pool is small and always in shade - but Jumeirah is close so it's not a problem.

Hotel area is ok, plenty of other hotels around, pharmacy, supermarket
and shopping malls in vicinity (Burjman mall is some 15 minutes walk which is very convenient when you cannot find a taxi in the evening). Speaking of taxis, beware when you ask the hotel staff to call you a taxi - if you do not insist on regular (metered) one, you wil end up in a regular car and the driver will charge you at least double the amount you would pay normally.

Overall, hotel is good, I would go back.

the majestic hotel is very clean and well organized, except for the cigarette smoke in the lobby.......not a fabulous gym. it only has 3 or 4 machines so its VERY basic....also, they have no steam room, or at least if they do it wasnt working. they do have a dry sauna, but didnt use it, so cant comment on it, pool area is very nice, great for a little people watching ..........breakfast is very good and the staff very efficient and professional.......beside the smoking in the lobby, this hotel is very very clean...........a front desk employee, Charlie, was extremely helpful in his knowledge of the city and arranging accomodation for our day trips. he's definately an asset to the hotel as he makes it easy to understand about the city/tours/bar lounges, etc and seemed sincerely happy to help....thank u charlie!!

Stayed here for 6 nights, and found it was a brilliant hotel. The staff were incredibly friendly, without hanging around expecting a tip.

The location is great - you can walk to Bastakaya, the museum, the creek, and get an Abra over to Deira. Plenty of other hotels nearby, if you fancy something different to eating in the majestic, although the food there was great. Breakfast choice was amazing, and we never once ate lunch as we were still to full after breakfast.

The hotel does a bus to a different place each day, either a mall or beach. We got the bus to Mall of the Emirates and then took a taxi to Wild Wadi. We didn't get the hotel bus home, as it returns at 1pm, but the return taxi from the Mall of the Emirates to the Majestic was only 37AED - and that's for a 30 minute/20KM journey!

Only two negatives: the pick up at the airport didn't turn up, but to be honest it's as easy to just jump in a taxi. And the pool, although lovely, is freezing - the heater is broken and they really need to get it fixed!

We stayed at the Majestic for three nights in November 2007. The hotel is very clean, rooms are adequately equipped, beds are comfortable and the staff are very helpful and friendly. We emailed ahead and asked for the hotel to supply us with a transfer from the airport. This was good value and cheaper than getting a taxi-as we found out on the way back! There is a pool, but due to the height of the surrounding buildings it is quite shaded with only a small area getting any sun at any one time. Not conducive to a good sun tanning session. A nice pool however, although a little lacking in sun beds. Check in was straight forward and we were able to get into our room at 12.00 midday. The first morning we were there we went to breakfast at around 10am. We were unable to get a seat/table as it was packed. There was no queuing system and we ended up going without even though it was included in our room rate. The second morning we got up earlier and were able to get a table. Breakfast was a good selection of all the usual items on a self service buffet. The hotel itself is 10/15 minutes drive from the airport. It takes about 30 minutes to get to the beach and the only transport option is a taxi. This cost between 50-70 UAE dirhams each way. There is a hotel shuttle once per day to the beach or other areas of interest - it leaves the hotel at 10am and returns at 1.00pm and only goes to one place per day. Jumeirah Beach Park is a good option, nice beach and clear sea. Very clean and nicely landscaped park area. Wafi Pyramids are in fairly close proximity to the hotel (you'll need a taxi though) and a really good option for a few restaurant choices. Try Asha's-well worth a visit. See separate review for our dinner at the Burj Al Arab.
