Reviewed August 3, 2012

Al Manzil is a hotel I would definitely recommend to anyone going to Dubai and this come from a person who had stayed at various " premium-super elite-- whatever- you- call- to- reflect- luxurious" hotels in Dubai.

Beautiful hotel,great food at the courtyard, friendly and helpful staff, well equipped gym,fast internet,huge business centre, beautiful pool, super clean room I cannot find any flaws so far during my one week stay.It is walking distance to Dubai Mall, taxis are just outside the hotel, the housekeeper who was so kind and attentive (thank you for placing chocodates on my evening turndown for my supper after coming back tired from work- saved my blood sugar level! )

There is even a bar in the hotel that I jut popped by to check out but it seems like a popular spot during the weekend , I see many people coming in and out...if it wasn't because of my duty the next day I would have joined the party.

Great staff and comfortable stay.I miss Al Manzil already.
this is classy hopitality!

Room Tip: pool view room is the best for me.

My husband and I arrived at the hotel at 7.30am. The front desk staff were so welcoming and really looked after us. We were given our room immediatedly, which was awesome as we were so tired from our very long flight. Our room was on the 5th floor and very comfortable. it had great views of Bur Kalifa and the beautiful lit up street at night, very romantic.The staff were most helpful and very friendly. Breakfasts were fantastic. In the evenings we walked from the hotel to the wonderful musical waterfountains light show in front of he Dubai Mall. Next time we will definitely stay again at Al Manzil.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view on the 5th floor

Just back from 10 day stay in Dubai. Hotel was excellent and staff extremely friendly and helpful. Oscar couldn't do enough to make your stay more enjoyable, as did all staff. Loved the open plan bath area, and very clean comfortable room. Had best steak dinner in sports bar, also great snacks from room service. Location great, across road from Dubai mall and fountains. Great view of burj kalifia. Would stay again when next visiting Dubai.

Hubby and I stayed as a stopover to Europe in June 2012. The staff were extremely friendly although it would have been nice to get into our room earlier as we had been awake for approx 24 hours. They did, however offer us complimentry coffee and snacks and were most apologetic (we arrived about 7am so you couldnt fault them). What was most defining about this hotel is the staff. All very very courteous. The hotel was very clean and was close to everything in downtown Dubai. It was disconcerting that the bathroom had a shower encased in clear glass and the bath area not separated.

Overall the hotel was excellent. Beautiful mix of traditional and modern architecture and design. The only thing I would say to watch out for are the bathrooms. When we stayed there on the 1st leg of our trip we got a room with a bathroom that has clear glass shower that you could see from the bedroom! fine if your a couple but not fine when traveling with your children and your mother! I ask for another room because of this, but they said that they had no other types of rooms and that that was one of the things the hotel was famous for. ?? I never saw a review of this anywhere.. On the second stay, however, we got another room where the bathroom and shower was glass but it was frosted so there was no problem there..... not sure if the hotel staff can tell the difference between frosted and non-frosted glass in the bathrooms???
