I remembered booking for my sons on the way to Paris when Al Manzil was just opened.....6 years ago? The rates was around $100 ish (per opening price)....were they lucky to taste the luxury for 1/4 th of the price and told me it was a beautiful hotel, I knew it's going to be a great hotel before I stumbled to book it as I work at the Hyatt and Mandarin before as their Art Director.....just looking at the bathroom it's enough for me to get that feeling, I ll book it when I visit Dubai one day as long as Mr K will give a good incentive to visit.

Room Tip: Pick the suite of course...my kids were here a few years ago can't remember dates so I just clic...

Al Manzil is ideally placed for Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa and the Fountain show. Just cross the road, head towards the Palace Hotel entrance, walk through the lovely Souk Al Bahar, cross the little bridge and you're there! The rooms are spacious and quiet- yes, the positioning of the bath is a bit quirky but for couples it is no issue. The breakfast is fantastic - a lovely buffet to cater for every need. WiFi works well in the room. Platinum Tours do pickups from the entrance and taxis are readily available (and cheap) at the front entrance

Room Tip: Request a room facing the courtyard or facing away from the Burj Khalifa

The Al Manzil was amazing real 5 star luxury it was a perfect location across the road from burg khalifia, restaurants and the Dubai mall perfect. The hotel food was top class, the pool was fantastic with a treat every afternoon of homemade lollipops or a cocktail a real treat. The room was large and very comfortable bed excellent value for money no wonder it is ranked 10th out of the hotels in Dubai! It deserves that rating.
The staff were very pleasant, helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble
The hotel transfers are well worth it not to have the hassle of taxis and good value at 150 AED we used it from the airport and to Bab Al Shams. Thank you everyone at the hotel but a special mention to Gregory on reception, Steve in restaurant, Jayson at pool bar and the drivers
Absolutely recommend this hotel if you are going to Dubai

Room Tip: We had the standard room on the 1st floor which was excellent roomy, quiet and spotless

Arrived very late and reception handled my registration swiftly and friendly. Was shown to my room (deluxe Burj Khalifa view) which was very well appointed with bathtub and separate shower and toilet facilities. It even had the Nespresso machine so a nice luxury touch. It has iron/board and safe plus Aromatherapy toiletries to relax weary travellers. The breakfast was wide and varied with the usual offerings. The pool area is quite small for vacation but for my two nights more than adequate. The sports bar/pub/restaurant in house was very busy and frequented by many expats watching about 10 simultaneous soccer matches making it noisy. The food is good and reasonably priced (nice wagyu beef pie) so give it a go - the Dubai Mall is about five minutes away and very BIG....take your camera as amazing Burj views and indoor aquarium - all in all a very pleasant stay and will return again.

Room Tip: go for the Burj view rooms

Well, I would give this hotel 3 or 3.5 stars out of 5. It is located within 5 min walk from Dubai Mall and fountains. The reception was working well and the check in was fine. We had deluxe Burj View room on 8 floor (if I remember correctly) facing Burj Khalifa. The room itself is not a 4 star room - it's small for Dubai standards, there is no separate bathroom. In Italy or France - the size would be adequate for the price you have to pay, but not in Dubai. There was a Nespresso machine in the room and wifi was free of charge. In my opinion the pool was to small for the scale of the hotel.
As our room was on the street side - constant construction noise 24/7, and remember, on the street side rooms are more expensive because of the Burj Khalifa view.
Next time I will choose another hotel in that area, the room and pool is to small, a little bit overpriced and constant noise from the street - decent 3 star hotel.

Room Tip: Stay away from the street side, yes the view is nice, but the noise is too loud.
