We have been there for a couple of days in the 1st week of October for our honeymoon, after being to the Seychelles. This hotel is centrally based, right in front of the Burj al Khalifa, next to the Address hotel (go to Neos Cocktail bar, top floor) and 5 min from the fountains (must see show! every 30 min in the evening till 11pm.).
The hotel Al Manzil is very romantic, the people and facilities are extremely modern and high tech, however, the ambiance and food is rustic and romantic. You feel like pampered when you see the bomboniere corner with different teas, the American Footbal cafe when you just want to hang out and drink a beer and escape from the heath. There is also a courtyard, with a Lebanese in-house restaurant, accesible for non hotel guests as well, but hotel guests are 'preferred' guests.
Breakfast is wonderful, just wonderful! You are in for a treat! Dont forget the smoothies and deserts.
As for the room, we were kinda upgraded to a nice suite, since we were on a honeymoon and all. This suite had a nice view of the Burj al Khalifa. Btw it was room 409.
I liked that they were very smart about using the space so effectively. The shower and toilet are separated from the bedroom by a milky glass door, but it actually was just one big room. The bed and bathroom is all together, there is no other door. In the beginning kinda strange, but everything is super clean and new and beautifully decorated that you dont actually care. The windows are huge and the view is great.
If i could change something then I would have wanted a bigger room.
All in all, the hotel was not 60 floor high something you see a lot in Dubai, and we dont like that.You still want to feel like everything is tailor made for you. When they call you by your last name where ever you go in the hotel, is what we care about more. That special feeling when you dont have to wait to get advice or help or whatever you need.
Definitely a hotel i would recommend. I would give it a 5 star.
