    Excellent Experience ”

    We recently stayed in the Raffles Dubai hotel. We booked two rooms, one was the standard signature room and the other was a club room. Both the rooms were the same however one came with club access. The rooms are large and have more than double the space compared to standard hotel rooms. There is a balcony with comfortable space as well. The hotel staff provided my family with excellent service and looked after us really well. Particular call out were the club lounge staff who always remembered our conversations and looked after the family really well. Breakfast in the morning has a good selection from around the world with a focus on asian, indian and local UAE based offerings. We got a chance to try the pool and it was being used by other guests at the time apartment from two young chikldren in the kids pool. The pool area still has a lifeguard, a pool bar attendant and one other person who had the job of clearing any water which we splashed out on the pavement. The staff were very attentive and provided us with any assistance we required. The only minus would be that hotel is a bit on one side of Dubai so you will need to use cabs, although time wise it is not much of an issue. The hotel is worth a extra few minutes of travel. Cabs are relatively cheap and always available in Dubai.

    Best Hotel in Dubai ”

    I've traveled to Dubai for many years and always wanted to stay at Raffles. I finally did and wondered why I didn't before. The hotel exceeded my expectations and to be honest the pictures available doesn't do Raffles justice. The staff is super friendly. There's a smile on everyone's face in turns put a smile on my face. I could go on forever about the hotel but the bottomline is if you want quality stay in Dubai then Raffles Hotel should be at the top of your list.

    One of the better hotels withbig rooms as standard”

    Rooms, service and location

    This has to be one of the better offering in Dubai today although frankly one is spoilt for choice. I like the Raffles commitment to old fashioned service. Whilst the hotel boasts a top night club on the pinnacle of the py ramidthat house the hotel, you dont need to know anything about this if you are a resident. The pool is pleasant although they do appear to have forgotten to put any foliage and plants around the place to make it more of a quiet oasis. It does have the feel of being a bit of a cement jungle with a major road running past.

    Luxury Hotel at an Awkward Location”

    Staff, staff, staff

    The Raffles Dubai attains the highest standards of the Raffles chain unfortunately while close to the airport (literally just a 10 minute drive) it means you are on the edge of town. Also while close to the metro (and a constant availability of cabs) going anywhere requires extra time. This is less than a reflection of the hotel than its location. If you don't mind an extra 20 minutes travel to go to the Emirates Mall or Burj Khalifa than this place is heaven. I've never been to a Raffles where the staff was as good -- never crossing that line where it became annoying. I do wish they could ditch the bizarre Egyptian theme (the hotel is in a shape of a pyramid.

    Huge rooms, very beautiful, centrally located

    The hotel has a very lovely lobby. Very big and soothing. On arrival you are greeted in arab custom with kahwa tea and dates. The lobby and corridors are very large and scenic. Rooms is the best part as they are the biggest I have encountered at this price. The hotel is adjacent to a very nice mall which will meet all your needs. The staff is too good and very professional. Infact this was the first time I felt like I had a personal butler at my beck and call. If you travel Dubai and can afford the price, I feel it was worth every Dirham and more.

    Large spacious standard rooms which is more like a suite than a standard room.

    this hotel has the most friendly and helpful staff from the front desk to the concierge. i was most surprised by the more than spacious rooms and the amenities in the room. i also loved the access to a balcony overlooking the city of dubai and the rooftop gardens below. although the wafi shopping centre was mostly empty, the variety of shops was quite amazing. i would recommend this hotel to all families and business people visiting dubai.

    Great hotel, staff and facilitates but a bit away from the touristy zones”

    My wife and I stayed at raffles for a week and though the hotel itself was lovely, staff were extremely nice and the room was large, spacious and modern. Location wise, It is a bit away from everything but I suppose with Dubai you are not really walking anywhere! The restaurants in the hotel were very good and the facilities were great (The pool was only ok though). If you were staying in Dubai for a short stay, the hotel is great as it’s near the airport but maybe for a week staying near the jbr walk / Dubai marina / the palm might be more touristy with beaches if you want a more touristy experience.

    The hotel location is ideal. Close proximity to the airport without being an "airport" hotel. Easy taxi access to everything! Beautifully appointed surroundings, without feeling like a corpoate hotel. They are there to find solutions. In our case, we arrived very early in the morning after a long international flight, prepared to wait for several hours. The desk manager moved heaven and earth to get us into a room quickly, less than 90 minutes! Additionally, it was not just a room but one with a view of the Dubai city sky line!
