I am very often staying at Intercontinental and always I get what I need. I recommend them because you are guaranteed quality and service. This one has a very good location since it is next to the airport and easy access to the whole Dubai. They serve fantastic breakfast and have nice food if you are not in a mood...

Service was very good, and friendly - however, I did find...

The pool was perfect as children's area let them splash around all day, also conveniently linked to a shopping mall and taxis are cheap to get downtown and to the sights. Would definitely stay...

I stayed at the hotel to attend a conference, and i extended my stay for leisure, the room does not give the cozy feeling, the staff are friendly and welcoming, they have a good range of restaurants, for people how likes Shisha, ask for the Belgium restaurant it has an amazing atmosphere.
