So, my 10th trip in 2 years, the RC DIFC is always a very high standard but despite me spending 1000's of pounds expenses staying there they are still unable to get my room type right (double bed, not 2 singles) or see themselves able to offer me any kind of complimentary upgrade facility to use the Club lounge facilities....

If you have business at the DIFC in Dubai you should stay at the Ritz. The location is great just steps from all the major offices at the DIFC and next to the arc. I have stayed there numerous times and really was never disappointed. The bar is fabulous and so the breakfast buffet. The price is quiet steep but...

I chose this hotel because of its location. There are heaps of great restaurants within walking distance. The hotel, staff and room were all very good. The only part I was not too impressed on was the outdoor pool. Its not the typical luxury pool setting one would expect from 5 star hotels. However, the DIFC Ritz Carlton does not...

Meat cuts presented in advance. I had chosen rib eye on the bone. Only fillet mignon was dry aged. Professional service and descent local wine(served by the glass). Descent desserts. Skyrocketing prices(three course and wine for 180 euros per person). Worst of all:the meat.quality and cut of second class,definitely below par vs price and expectations.
