dreaming place”

Since you enter on the hall you'll understand that will be amazing your staying in this hotel. We were two friends 24y old from Italy and we arrive late in the night. The staff was ready to welcome us since we arrive with the taxi. The hotel has many facilities (for free you can use the pool on the roof that is excellent, the spa) there is also a little souvenir shop, a night club, a bar (english style) a guy that will help you with the atractions of dubai (we bought the atlantis ticket trough him and we save money and time not doing the line at the entrance of the waterpark). The hotel is located close to the emirates mall and on the way there are many supermarket if you need to buy some snaks. You can catch the taxy from outside the hotel door or from the main street (100/200 meters far), just pay attantion to the difference between the taxy and the private driver (that cost double and usually have lexus or other "luxury cars"). Excelent staying, see you next time ;)

My Stay at the Grand Excelsior was a nice one. my first impression was a great value for the room. I had paid for a Standard room and was upgraded to a Suite. The room was very large and impressive. As I began to settle in and look around the suite, I noticed several things. First, the Suite was not thoroughly cleaned. There was trash from a previous guest, and the sheets and bed cover appeared to have not been changed. The first night, I overlooked these things, and waited for my room to be cleaned the next day. After returning from a day out, I had saw that the housekeeping had been in the clean the room. I looked at the sheets and bed cover to see that the same stains were still there. But, even with these shortcomings, I would still recommend this Hotel. At check-out I did inform the receptionist about what I thought about the room.

interior is very plush, exterior looks like a cruise ship!

My wife and I enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is modern, clean, comfortable and in a very convenient location, within walking distance of The Mall of The Emirates, about 10 mins. What more can you ask for for a short city break. But be warned that it gets very hot when walking anywhere in Dubai, especially in the afternoon, so those 10 mins can feel like 30! so take an umbrella to shade you from the beastly sun, as it is a bit too close to tale a taxi.

Free shuttle, free upgrade

The hotel is located some 10min walking to mall of emirates. They offer a free shuttle to the mall and to jumeira beach and Dubai mall. Unfortunately, there is just one per day. The room was spacious, but the furniture somehow old. The hotel itself needs some renovation and redecoration. We were offered a free upgrade to deluxe room, as our stay was long. It also does not have any view, as it is surrounded by very tall buildings. The room was cleaned daily and the staff helpful.
