Reviewed yesterday NEW

I love this hotel. It's chic and comfortable without any pretense or stuffiness. Nicest staff in Dubai and they all make one's stay easy, relaxing and seamless. I wish they'd expand to other cities in the region.

As a young couple, we really enjoyed the Lazy Brunch and pool cabanas. The bed was fabulous and the service was very friendly and helpful. Great place downtown with easy access to Dubai Mall and the Burj Fountains!

I connected with the environment from my first stay at the hotel. It's quiet and peaceful. I will recommend your hotel to anyone coming to Dubai. The rooms are very relaxing but I wish I can get an upgrade very soon.

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
