Reviewed February 16, 2013

I booked Al Manzil Hotel by myself, and starting from the first emails, the staff was always very efficient and extremely polite. Once we got to Dubai, I was extremely happy with my choice. The position is great - only a few minutes walk to Dubai Mall in a very nice area. We got a Burj Khalifa view room which I think was worth it. All the staff was extremely helpful. We were very happy with the car service to and from the airport. We also took a 6-hour private car tour of Dubai arranged by the hotel, who took us to all the important places and had us discover the city, as it was the first time for us. In the Conservatory Restaurant we had a buffet lunch upon arrival, and also buffet breakfast - delicious and very varied!! The rooms were beautiful, and interesting with the mid-room bathtubs. My son appreciated the fitness room and the pool. We hope to go to Dubai again soon and we would definitely pick Al Manzil Hotel for our next stay.

Room Tip: A Burj Khalifa view room adds to the fascinating atmosphere.

Even though the Hotel is located just right at the boulevard with a great view over the Burj Khalifa, its calm and quite.The Hotel offeres a nice pool area, charming rooms with open bathtubs located in the middle of the room. The TV can be turned and one can watch ether form the bed or while having a bath. Funny and a change for once! The room service is surprising fast and reasonable priced and unlike many places, the food was still properly hot when it arrived. The boulevard cafe is a nice place to have breakfast. The serve things like bagel with salmon and egg benedict with ham and sauce hollandaise. Very good!
The rooms come with free (and rather fast) internet.
Dubai mall, Souk al Bahar and the fountain are just 5 min walk away from the Hotel.
The stuff is multi national and very nice.

Its a beautiful Hotel just next to the old town of Dubai. Great place and I will come back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with Burj Khalifa view. The middle east still offers smoking and non smoking rooms.

The hotel has a nice arabian flair, a great breakfast buffet, a relaxing pool area, very nice rooms with open bathrooms and is ideally located to the Dubai Mall and the Burji Kalifa. It's quiet, well maintained and the staff was very helpful. We would stay there again.

We stayed here for 2 nights, the staff could not have been more helpful and it was spotlessly clean. The bath in the bedroom was novel but overall a very good room. The location is excellent for downtown Dubai with easy access to the main main sights and the Dubai mall.
We did not eat in the hotel.

The room is very confortable and clean, and the breakfast is one of the best we had in this trip.

Excellent localization, 5 min walk to Dubai Mall and the Al Khalifa building, and central do the other parts of the city, using taxi. The metro station is not so close by walking.

The hotel is in the perfect location close to the Dubai mall, the fountain and only about 100 feet from a fully stocked grocery store. (Simply walk thru the courtyard, thru the doors , turn right and there you are) . Mohammed, at the concierge desk is amazing, friendly and very helpful. He knows how to get you where you want to go. What a nice guy.

We loved Dubai. It is a very safe and clean city. A stop in Dubai is well worth the time and money.

Dear thetraveller123,

Thank you for your great feedback, I will proudly relay your kind words to the team in general and Mohammed in particular.

The Al Manzil Hotel offers a variety of dining options such as our Arabian themed restaurant, The Courtyard, a Parisian sidewalk café, Boulevard Café, and our specialty sports grill, Nezesaussi, inspired by the tri-nations, New Zealand, South Africa and Australia. The Downtown Dubai area is buzzing with life, offering visitors a wide selection of dining and shopping venues and breath-taking attractions such as the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Fountain.

We do hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back to the hotel in the near future.

I've stayed at the Al Manzil a few times - its location is perfect (right in the heart of downtown Dubai, right across from the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall and the Souk Al Bahar), Emaar Boulevard, where it is located, is really beautiful and charming. The rooms are perfectly appointed, although as I'm sure anyone who has looked at a review or two on this site will soon find out, the bathroom is situated smack bang in the middle of the room so you might find it uncomfortable if you are not travelling with your partner! I have only ever stayed here with friends and we had to get into a routine of looking away when each other were using the shower! ;)

The Al Manzil isn't one of the WOW glamorous Dubai hotels/resorts - but it is a beautiful, modern, well-appointed hotel which is well-located, decently priced and has a beautiful Arabian charm. If you're planning to visit Dubai as a city rather than to stay in your hotel/resort the entire trip, then the Al Manzil is a perfect choice :)

Also loved the Shisha lounge/restaurant in the courtyard - stunning!
