we have stayed at Vida before and we like it but this time the price for small suite was excessive.. Location is excellent and people are very friendly. some time too much light as curtains need to close better and also can be noisy.

Amazing location right on the MBR Boulevard, minutes from Burj Khalifa and Dubai Opera and other attractions in Dubai. Poor food with very few varieties; no amenities. Seems that hygiene is not a priority for staff - need to be watchful.

I am still here. Service excellent, staff friendly and they remember you. Small hotel which is different for DXB. Room great, breakfast fun and lots of interesting choices. Upstairs bar relaxing and friendly. Gym equipment is very satisfactory. Front desk very helpful. Room service fast. I'll stay longer. Thank to all Vida staff so far.

I often visit the Stage 2 lounge at Vida Hotel, since it first opened. It is a perfect place to catch up with friends or get some work done. The lounge itself is beautifully done - it is inviting, relaxing, lovely during sunset particularly if out on the balcony. While the scene itself is welcoming, it is the team overseeing...

Staying here for business every week for a few months. It has boutique charm, not overly large but decent rooms, is right in the middle of downtown with many places in walking distance and has a fantastic breakfast.

We stopped for a Dubai break en route to Mauritius. The hotel is in a great location for the Dubai Mall and Burj Kalifa (just across the boulevard). The rooms are spacious and modern with very comfortable beds. The breakfasts were excellent and beautifully presented. The best thing about the hotel though is it's staff.

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.
