23 hour stop over @ DBX
Fantastic hospitality and service. Meet and greet at gate took stress out of finding hotel Room spacious, kids enjoyed heated pool and jacuzzi

A welcome oasis,
Our flight from Prague landed somewhere in the boondocks, with a long bus ride to the terminal. We could have kissed Jennifer, our sweet meet and greet staff person, who took our heaviest piece of hand luggage and whisked us onto the train and up to reception, then quickly escorted us to our room. Couldn't believe the service for an airport hotel - drinks and canapés arrived on a white clothed table within a few minutes. Lots of toiletries provided, hair dryer - and an iron and ironing board, almost wished we had a use for it, after weeks of living out of suitcases! Would definitely stop over again when flying from Europe to Sydney.

Excellent hotel let down by Executive Lounge staff
As with my last stay, which was in Concourse B, this stay was excellent except for one surly and inefficient staff member in the executive floor lounge. Otherwise, front of house staff, meet and greet staff, rooms, facilities, food, were all excellent

Perfect location for a comfortable rest
The hotel is in the most perfect location for a comfortable rest between flights. The beds are really good and my favourite touch is the fresh fruit.

Great stop-over location and terrific reception
The Hotel is perfectly located within the terminal and allowed us to get a good night's sleep before the next leg of our long journey. The rooms are big and very well appointed. The bed was the most comfortable we had slept in for 5 weeks! We were met at the gate, escorted through security and up into the hotel immediately upon arrival in Dubai. The fact that we did not have to pass through Customs now pick-up our main luggage was fantastic. Great stay - highly recommend.

Great way to break up a long haul flight.
This was just a wonderful way to break up a long haul flight in luxury and virtually elimated the jet lag on our return home. The only thing we would have liked was a continental breakfast delivered to the room. This would have completed a great experience. A must for all long haul travellers to reduce jet lag.

Perfect rest stop
We used this hotel again to break our travel. Love the meet and greet at the gate, saves navigating the airport.

expensive but well worth for a short stop over
Executive Rooms were comfortable, spacious and soundproofed with access to executive lounge with perks. We were met and escorted from airplane disembarkation to the hotel and did not waste time looking for the hotel. Check-in and check-out was quick. Overall, all staff were friendly and did their best to satisfy our requests.
