Room was amazing, which was expected; and it was very spacious, more spacious than my expectations. Service was great. Nothing disappointed me. Very nice stay. Enjoyed a lot. Meals were great as well. Location and the view were great too. The most liked things, however, were the room itself and the pleasant service.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

If I could give this hotel 100 stars I would. I have never been so impressed with a hotel or service, ever. We arrived early from an overnight flight from Australia, was granted the early check in I had requested. The room was spectacular, absolutely huge and overlooking the pool and the Dubai skyline. Amazing. We chose this property because...

The Raffles Hotel is fabulous place to stay. It's connected to the Wafi Mall. The staff are kind and attentive. Mathew in the club lounge was exceptional. The hotel has a nice pool, swim up bar and a jacuzzi. The hotel has an Egyptian theme and the interior design is beautiful. It definitely deserved its Trip Advisor number 1. I...

Having stayed at The luxurious Sofitel Jumeirah Beach for a holiday, I moved to work and stay at this hotel in October 2016. Upon opening my room door I was amazed by the cleanliness (a given in Dubai really) and the facilities, and ultimately the sheer size of the room. It was HUGE! Luxurious bed, seating area, balcony, desk, massive...

I spent two nights at Raffles at Christmas on my way to Hong Kong. The hotel was lovely, convenient to airport and the staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.

We stayed here for 2 nights and the accommodation was perfect. We (me and my wife) had the signature king bedroom and it was more than spacious. It almost felt like a suite. The balcony was the icing on the cake, as it wasn't your ordinary narrow balcony but large and spacious with proper couches. That way we got to...

We staid at Raffles during Christmas, and were very well taken care of. The room was beautiful and well maintained. The food was excellent, with nothing left out. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is quite practical, not so far from the airport and with access to the metro near by.
