    A sheerly beautiful hotel - stunning rooms, gorgeous reception areas and lounges - and - how wonderful!! A library. Staff are thoughtful and kind and nothing is too much trouble. A good location and a short drive to Burj Kalipha and Dubai Mall and there is a lovely mall right next to the hotel. The rooms have balconies which is such a delight - and there are lovely grounds and outdoor sitting and dining areas. We loved this hotel and cannot wait to go back there!

    it's not the best location unless you want to be close to the airport, but the rooms are huge and well appointed. even the standard room gets a balcony, which is a nice touch. concierge was very helpful. fire and ice restaurant was just so-so - definitely overpriced for a basic steak, but that seems to be the norm in dubai.

    Beautiful hotel <20 minutes from airport, but close to shopping, restaurants etc. Club room was huge and luxurious. Balcony was a bonus as overlooked Dubai skyline. Spa was absolutely fantastic and very highly recommended for anyone needing to 'get away from it all'.

    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.

    This was our second visit to the hotel, this time bringing some friends with us. Our stay lived up to all our memories of the place and all of our expectations, our friends where loved it. What makes the difference is how friendly all the staff are, always willing to help and greeting with a smile. The facilities in the hotel are excellent, as is the food. The location is away from the mail beaches and the newer part of the city, but that was not an issue for us. The metro is 200m away with fast connection to the older part of the city and the souks. It also connects to the rest of the city and the main malls. We will return again

    Apart from the location which is a bit away from downtown Dubai (but let's face it you aren't walking to any attractions in Dubai anyway) this hotel is perfect. The huge rooms, the friendly professional staff and the fantastic food. Club rooms are the way to go, the breakfast, afternoon tea and evening canapes and enough to satisfy you all day.

    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.

    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!
