“Delightful Dubai”
Reviewed November 9, 2011

Dubai can be an assault on your senses, and there are many fine properties all over town, but staying here felt like coming home every night. We had a wonderful suite with a balcony facing Emaar Blvd. and the entrance to "The Palace" and "Old Town" across the street. The Burj Khalifa loomed in the distance as if some desert apparition in the heart of the business district. There is a small Souk adjacent to the hotel and a marvelous gym/pool/club as well. If you're aching to go big: The Dubai Mall is just across the road.

I stayed at Al Manzil for 5 weeks while on business and the facilities and service really are second to none..ALL of the staff without exception are attentive and helpful - and nothing is too much bother for them. Great location across the road from the Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa...I have no negatives about this hotel and would HIGHLY recommend...

Room Tip: the rooms overlooking the pool and courtyard have lovely views but the music and laughter from the r...

This - feel good - hotel offers great value for money. Rooms are very fashionable and spacious, with maximum comfort. Hotel staff is very friendly and the restaurant food is just great! Stayed here two times and al Manzil will definitely be my first choice if I visit Dubai again.

Room Tip: I think euch room is OK

We have just come back from a stay at the Al Manzil hotel in Dubai. We must say that we have never stayed in such a friendly hotel, all the staff, in particular Hazel Vaz, could'nt have been more accomdating. The rooms were spotlessly clean, I dropped an earing on the floor the first night and we had to move the bed to reach it and even under the bed was spotless,This was the second time we have stayed there and would'nt hestitate to stay again, our room was looking out at the Burj Khalifa and the dancing fountains, where else in the world could you get this view ?We would recommend this hotel to anyone who visits Dubai.

Have already been there twice and a third time is planned. The staff is very friendly and effective, the location is excellent (walking distance from the Dubai Mall), the rooms are clean, modern and nice (well the open bathtub is not very convenient, when there are more than one in the room...)Breakfast is ok, the nezesaussi pub very lively and the restaurant in the atrium very good as well.

The hotel was fantastic due to many reasons. The location of the hotel...it is situated opposite the Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa so there was lots of choice of activities. Another reason was the Arabian feel of the hotel. The mix of old world Dubai in a hotel with ultra modern faciliites worked together seamlessly and last but not least, the hotel staff were exceptional.

We have just had a wonderful holiday in Dubai and stayed in the AL Manzil Hotel which was just brilliant from the moment we arrived the staff where so helpful. The room was superb overlooking the Burg. We had breakfast ever morning and although it was a buffet there where plenty of staff around to help and serve you coffee etc.
I cannot praise them enough for making our stay memorable, thankyou.
The hotel is within walking distance of the Dubai Mall so that was great not having to get taxi's etc.
