Nothing - everything was excellent - not a single remark

Room Tip: ask for a quiet room - I was told that the rooms facing the main street are more affected by the tra...

What a wonderful hotel!! Warm, friendly, not pretentious. We were made to feel like family right from the moment of check-in (with Hazel). Top notch service. We often heard "how can we make your stay more enjoyable". Management must hire to high standards and continually stress service. All staff responded quickly and were very accommodating. Beautiful pool area with very attentive attendants.Room was new-age with open environment but not suitable for everyone as tub and sink are in full view. Good selection of restaurants with shisha in the courtyard. Breakfast buffet was absolutely tremendous1 Everything you could ever want was available and the chef cooked eggs to perfection. Location: great access to Burj Khalifa and Dubai mall. Definitely stay again and would highly recommend!!

I stayed here in February with my husband and 4 year old son and was extremely impressed from the moment we arrived. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and were extremely kind to my little boy who was very fond of Oscar and the chef at breakfast who cooked the eggs! Breakfast itself was outstanding, fresh foods of all description available in abundance. The rooms are lovely and we liked the quirky bathroom layout with the bath in the bedroom! The pool although not huge is plenty big enough for doing lengths in or just cooling off and the pool attendants are extremely attentive; there was never a problem with getting a sun lounger. We ate in the Sports bar which was excellent and very good value, although if you go on a Monday get there early as women eat free and so it's very popular! All in all highly recommend.

The best thing about the Al Manzil is the location. Great walking around Burj Khalifa and Dubai mall, for 8 months of the year anyway. Great hotel if shopping is the focus of your stay.

The all glass open concept bathroom is a bit unusual and not for everyone. No bidet, which are normally standard in the region. Room was nothing special and a bit minimalistic. There was a bit of traffic noise.

Breakfast buffet was good by normal chain hotel standards but nothing special for Dubai.

The free shuttle bus to various locations throughout the day, including Jumeirah Beach and Mall of the Emirates was a nice option.

Overall, decent value in an expensive city.

We went for a family long weekend in Dubai and decided to stay at Al Manzil Hotel since it allowed 2 adults and 2 kids in the one room. The service at this hotel is top notch. From the doorman (Oscar) to housekeeping (Arlyn) to after-sales service manager (Samir), the service was personalized, friendly and genuine. I wrote a review on the hotel and Samir took the time to send a personalized email reflecting each of my comments. The only non-positive observation I made was in relation to the bathroom. The layout of the suite is open-plan so you need to be comfortable in front of your guests. For families and couples is okay but you may decide on something else if travelling and sharing with friends :) Walking distance to Dubai Mall (not in Summer) but you need to go through The Address or Souq Al Bahar - there is no pedestrian friendly access otherwise.

We chose to stay downtown rather than at a beach hotel and were not disappointed. It was in an excellent position to be able to walk out and be at Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa in 10 minutes, walking mainly through air conditioned buildings We infact had a magnifent view of the Burj Khalifa from our delightful room. The choice of food at breakfast was tremendous and a room service meal beautifully presented and delicious. The staff couldn't have been more helpful in helping us to make arrangements.
