One wonders why the ratings aren't higher”
I needed a hotel in between flights with different airlines (10 hours or so), and got a room with Fortune Plaza hotel for a rather good deal. I landed at terminal 2 and it was only a short 8 minute drive or so to the hotel (a little longer from terminals 1 and 3 but should not cost more than 60-65 AED to get there taking into account the 25AED starting fare if starting the ride from the airport). Front desk service staff Mr Suresh was very warm and friendly, and checked me in in under 5 minutes. Room was clean enough for me (there were some rust stains on the bath tub but they didnt bother me as I only took a shower). There was also a free bottle of water (there is a minimart which opens till late right across from the hotel anyway). I wonder why the ratings for this hotel is not higher.
Fortune Plaza is win for travelers stuck in Dubai”
Fortune Plaza offers a free shuttle to and from Terminal Two in less then 8 minutes, WiFi in the room, and a ridiculously low rate for Dubai. It also has many bars with different kinds of music and beautiful women. There is also a restaurant across the parking lot for better food. I am recommending this hotel to my company and will stay here if ever I need to wait for a flight in Dubai.
Good service !”
We had a very pleasant stay. Great services. The room offered to us was spacious,clean and had a great view.All the restuarants were great. I even tried the salon,Brut on the 4th floor. It was very good.I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a budget hotel,near the Dubai international airport and very close to all major shopping areas.
great stop over”
This is the second time I stayed at Fortune Plaza. It is close to the airport and easy walking distance to the Metro stop. the rooms are spacious and clean. The superior room is a few dollars more than the deluxe, but very well worth it. I would stay there again for short stops in Dubai. Room service does a great job with their curries and biryani, even at 2am.
close to airport”
The Fortune Plaza Hotel, had good service and is in a good location for someone traveling on business, its close to the airport. The room was clean and comfortable enough for the price. However the hotel is dated and in need of a rentovation, but for the price it was a great choice and I will stay there again the next time I have to travel through Dubai.
Great for layover in Dubai”
if you are looking for a polished and shiny and new hotel with lots of amenities, chose a different hotel. if you want a good layover hotel at a reasonable price then this might be your place. the hotel was known as the princess - just ask any cab driver. it is an older hotel, and has a certain 'india' charm. the staff is friendly and willing to help, the rooms are adequate and clean. i would equate it to a holiday inn express. there are three or four different venues in the hotel for meals/entertainment including a pretty good full menu indian resturaunt. all were reasonably priced (you are in dubai after all). fortune is only 5 minutes to terminal 2. i would stay there again.
Nice comfortable hotel”
The Fortune Plaza Hotel is conviniently located near the international airport and nnear to a metro station. It has a good value / price ratio. The staff is very attentive and care for customer satisfaction. In the lobby area there is a nice club good for some relaxation or escape from the long business or shopping day.
my home away from home”
i will definitely return to stay at the fortune plaza hotel. not only is it a stone's throw to the airport, but the hotel is efficiently run by friendly staff and i had fun a the gym, sauna and rooftop swimming pool. and we had the unique pleasure of 2 night clubs in one hotel!!
Layover Hotel -- worked good!”
i flew in to dubai from hawaii via usa - on my way to africa. dubai was layover. fortune hotel was a perfect layover hotel. reasonable price, clean room, hot water in the shower and quiet enough to let me rest. pub and bar was available to get some liquid refreshment before sleeping off the jet lag. i would travel back to this hotel. it was very convenient to terminal 2.
Excelent Hotel with very good service”
fortune plaza was true value for money, hotel managemnet & staff was very attentive & supportive. they helped us in looking for a good hospital as my kid was suffering from fever. they arranged for all my trips on nominal rates. i will come again & stay at same place. thanks team for providing such a "wow" experience.
Transit hotel not far from Dubai airport”
Clean, quiet, comfortable and not overpriced hotel not far from Dubai International airport - easy metro access in day time till midnight. Airport TAXI - s are expensive, if you start your TAXI drive directly from the airport.
Lovely, pleasant hotel”
i enjoyed my stay at the fortune plaza. it was a very clean, comfortable place with a 'luxury-style' bed and room. it was great to have a pool and gym for some relaxation and work-out. the proximity to the airport was a bonus as well. however, i was really disappointed that the staff caused considerable anxiety in denying airport transfers even though the website said that it is provided. the hotel claimed they stopped the free airport transfers for agoda customers. i was upset with agoda and the hotel in not doing more to resolve this issue.
location & staff is good but service is average”
This hotel is ok for the money you spent. When you get travel arrangement from the travel desk, you should ask for travel itinerary in writing. I booked Desert Safari. Travel desk manager told me verbally what is included in the desert safari trip and it is supposed to be 5 hours trip and it turned out be 3 hours trip. I did not receive everything what the travel desk promised me. I had to pay extra money for certain things which travel manger told me that it is included. This hotel is close to the airport. When I arrived to Dubai airport I called the hotel and asked the hotel about the taxi fare; how much it would cost me for the taxi to go to the Fortune plaza hotel. The hotel receptionist told me that it would cost me 35 to 40 AED. So, I believed him. I took the Taxi to the hotel; the meter was started at 25 AED and it cost me 41 AED with meter taxi. On my way back to the airport from the Fortune Plaza hotel, it cost me only 16AED with meter taxi. I was surprised that how badly I was ripped off by the taxi with the knowledge of the hotel in my arrival to Dubai. I believe it is a scam carried out by the Dubai taxi operations and the Hotels. Be aware of it
Convenient location close to terminal 2”
I stayed for 1 night at this hotel in transit from Copenhagen to Kabul with departure from terminal 2 - less than about 10 minutes by taxi from the Fortune Plaza. Unfortunately there was a scheduled power cut the next morning so nothing electrical was working - no light, no a/c, no lift and worst of all no room service breakfast. However, the room rate for the night I stayed there was exceptionally good - perhaps due to the scheduled power cut? It was not the fault of the hotel but had I known about this in advance, I might not have chosen to stay there for this particular night. Apart from this, everything was fine and I would definitely consider staying there again.
Affordable yet lovely hotel and good staaf”
Compared to similar hotels Fortune plaza was the best when you consider price, service, cleanness and quality of service. There is one negative point regarding the location it is in the middle between two metro stations so walking to either of them will take around 12 minutes which is ok in winter but very difficult in the summer heat and humidity.
Location conveniently located near airport...”
my stay at fortune plaza hotel was very pleasant. the staff was very helpful as i had many issues and they did everything they could to help me. it was close to the airport and right accross from a convenience store. the area seemed safe and there was a small park with a walking/running track around the park. rooftop pool was small but nice. overall a nice stay.
Stay, if you are budget and location conscious”
The Fortune Plaza hotel is actually a familiar hotel, given I have resided there quite a few times before. The rooms have been renovated and hence, my rather improved rating. The bathrooms have regrettably remained the same, though the hotel had informed me that they will be renovating the bathrooms last year. Hope they get around to it this year. The service is just fine. Front desk is accommodating. The mezzanine floor contains quite a few dance bars and the pub is located on the ground floor. All are equally noisy, but the dance bars are the most noisy with clientèle walking in and out right until closing time in the wee morning hours. This does mean that if your room is closer to the mezzanine, that much higher your chances of participating in the music - irrespective of your choice :) Lastly, since 31 March, there is now a (minimum) AED 10 surcharge per night, per room. It can go up, depending on the type of room. So be prepared to pay this amount in cash at the time of your check-out. The biggest advantage is that the hotel is located quite close to the airport and it takes not more than 10-15 minutes to reach in either direction. Of course, it is value for money, for those who are budget conscious or time conscious. The Dubai Metro Green line is also located very close by and can get you access to the rest of the city quite easily. Food is quite good, if your taste runs towards Indian - especially south Indian food.
Good hotel to stay and even see dubai”
We spent only a night at this hotel to catch our flight, as this hotel is very close to the airport. however when we checked in, we found this hotel to be good on value for money basis. If u r on a low budget and want to see dubai, u can go for this hotel. Its cheap with nice amenities, well placed (not ideal but good), very close to Dubai MRT, red line i think and has nice malls and shops around it.
joy,unforgetable,great relaxing period”
it was a great times spent over fortune plaza hotel,it will be repeated again but in the winter season next time coz dubai in summer is hard to live
Great location , Great rooms ”
Rooms were clean , Staff was co-operative. Food was amazing and best part no traffic to go to any airport . Sharjah and Dubai both airports very nearer
