Great value”

Check in at the hotel was smooth and everyone from the bellhops to the front desk were helpful and efficient. The room was large and had very comfortable furniture. The breakfast buffet had a large selection of food that spanned many international tastes and every dish was delicious. It is a 12 minute walk to the Metro Station. and there are always taxis waiting outside the hotel, so transportation is convenient.

Top notch hotel. A bit dated. But great value”

Big room size, comfortable beds, lots of dining and food options. Fittings and furnishings are dated but are clean and functional. Some delays in check out - not enough staff at counter but once I got the counter, the check out process was faster than most. Location is great for “internet city”. However, given how you have to drive to get anywhere, proximity is not that important. Next time I will choose somewhere on the water

pros and cons ”

Trying to be objective here for good and bad about this hotel. Room size is comfortable, check in/out is very slow, seems like things happen just slow and service need to wait. Room service is brilliant, all food are nice, I happened to mis calculated the total amount and paid exceeded cash and some one sent it back to me right after. Heater has problem, no hot water or very slow hot water during our stay, needs to leave the shower water on for a couple of minutes before the hot water come. Overall a very decent hotel for business guests.

Weekend Get-away”

Checked-in at this hotel last July on a Club option. Sadly, the lounge is closed for renovation so a dedicated counter for checking-in and checking-out wasn't an option but they made sure they accomodate you first. Mr. Andrew from the reception had been very warm and welcoming with a huge smile on his face. The afternoon tea was served in the lobby with a limited choices for the sweets although their hot chocos are worth trying. The evening canapés and cocktails was served at Prego's Italian Restaurant where the Manager, Mr. Raju have been very hospitable and treated us with some goodies after I've requested for a dessert as normally, the lounge at most Rotana Hotels serve scrumptious food. Good job to pur F&B expert Aung too for being so attentive with our orders. We will definitely come back. Highly recommended.

Central location, excellent breakfast, attentive staff

The hotel is located close to Juneirah and Dubai Marina. Need transportation as nothing is located in walking distance. Attentive staff, clean rooms, though more a 4 star rating. Loud music from the outside lounge bar until late evening is annoying in the rooms facing that direction

Great service, excellent rooms, very comfortable

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. It was very kind of them to allow it.

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.

One of the biggest rooms i have seen in Dubai and the toilet is very nice and big with a separate shower area, and bath tub. overall the hotel gives a nice feeling. But the location is not that good as its i the middle of no where. There is only a small supermarket across the road and thats about all you can find in that area.
