Great new choice of "stopover"...”

Hotel facilities - Staff -

we were booked in to the media rotana barsha - dubai after checking on the internet for alternative accommodation when informed that the hotel where we had stayed for the last 12+ years was being renovated. any doubts were quickly dispelled on our very early morning arrival when we were welcomed with a smile and shown promptly to our room (overlooking the swimming pool}. being frequent stop-over visitors to dubai (3-4 nights) we usually just relax and enjoy the hotel facilities and we were not disappointed at our new venue. the restaurants within the complex were excellent and we cannot speak highly enough of all the staff. thank you media rotana barsha for yet another enjoyable visit to dubai.

Very nice accommodations”

Clean spacious rooms, friendly staff, convenient location

the media rotana barsha is a very clean, open, and spacious hotel. the room had a kitchen, large bath with tub, and an open, airy bedroom. the hotel staff were very friendly and immediately responsive to any requests for assistance. the concierge desk was always manned and always helpful. the taxi ride from the airport was fairly long but still convenient. the metro stop two blocks from the hotel provides access to the rest of dubai. the terrace lounge by the pool was wonderful for catching a cool evening breeze near the pool and offers a great alternative to the nice restaurants and lounges adjacent to the lobby. the spa, although not used, is convenient and reasonably priced. i will definitely consider staying at this hotel whenever traveling through dubai again.

Hotel Room View.

my wife and i spent four nights here at media rotana for our honeymoon trip to dubai. it was a very pleasant stay there. we have arrived dubai with early morning flights and we were able to check-in @9:30 am soon as we arrive the hotel. and the lovely hotel check-in staff has noticed that it was my honeymoon trip thus upgraded our room to suite with a small kitchen inside of it. we also received complimentary chocolate sweets, and cakes later ----- "twice!" what a amazing hotel that definitely leaves lots of good impression for my honeymoon trip there. overall, this hotel has good access to highway that can get you quickly most major tourist attractions and malls in dubai. (if you are driving yourself of course) a great place to stay for tourists.

It is Amazing Hotel & Amazing Staff”

Staff, Food, & very clean furniture

Hello, I used to stay in Dubai every weekend & spend 1 night in one of the 5 stars hotels, This was my first experience in Media Rotana & it was amazing. Specially when the lady at front desk "FLOR" helped me to find me a room with a specific requirement & she went herself to check availability if that room. You can feel you are a real guest. The price is very affordable comparing to quality of room & service (hope they don't jump up after our reviews :) I really liked the space of the room, the in room food service & the furniture was very clean (specially carpets) .. i'll book next Friday & ask for same room :) Regards

Nice Hotel, good location”

big rooms, clean, all facilities are good: swimming pool, club rotana, a lot to mention

we arrived a bit earlier than the check in time around 12:30 p.m. the staff couldn't check us in as the room was not ready. fair enough. we had to go to spend some time around in dubai. we were back at 4:00 p.m. yet the room was not ready and had to wait another half an hour. that was a bit hicktic but it was ok as we know rotana very well and things were out of their controlo because of a leak in our assigned room's a/c. overall; our stay in rotana was very good, and we will chose media rotana again and again

Price, location, staff

Media Rotana is always our choice of stay in Dubai because of the price and location. It's always a great experience. The only thing I would change about it is the pool. It is shady and not very exciting but good for a refreshing afternoon in the water.

Service, Club Rotana, general vibe in the hotel

We had a wonderful stay from the time we arrived. Problem with noise with other guests and immediately looked for another room to help us. Complimentary fruit and daily complimentary snacks thoughout the day was a welcome, esp with kids wanting to nibble. Great hotel and great location, if not wanting to use metro as that worked well for us with kids. In fact works out more affordable than the metro in both time and money. We were happy with our stay at Media Rotana.

Contemporary, clean, good location and accessability to all the major centre of attraction, helpful and friendly staff
No free internet access

My family went to Dubai for Christmas with the intention of enjoying the holiday to its fullest. We were not too happy when we checked into the first hotel we spent our first night in. Luckily the hotel has free internet access that allowed us to search for and found Rotana. It was the other reviews that sold the hotel to us and we were not disappointed. To be sure we went in to check the place out before finally booking it. We knew we had a winner immediately we entered the place. Believe it, its one of the best hotel Ive ever stayed. I shall return again and again.

room, location and comfort

As expected for most Rotana hotels, the Media Rotana holds a very high standard and it was evident through their staff courteous-ness and the quality of the rooms. Room was immaculate and comfortable. The location is great. There is a good restaurant in the Golden Tulip hotel across the street. It's called Take Away. The chicken wings are excellent! Great stay at a great hotel.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Media Rotana. Service was swift and friendly, and every front desk officer did their utmost to accommodate our requests. Most of all, we really appreciated it when we had to partially cancel our booking for the first night because our road trip to Oman proved much longer than anticipated due to traffic.
