      Best service provided!”

      Booked for 14 days and it was worth the money. Riviera hotel got a high rating in Agoda and the reviews didn’t lie. Location wise it’s good; nearest train station is only 2-3 minutes walk from the hotel. I’d prefer a location near Al Rigga but Baniyas is good enough. Our room was spacious for 3 persons and it’s cleaned daily. The furnitures are a bit old but still in good condition. But what I really appreciate about this hotel is the staff! Everyone is pleasant and respectful. They’d great you, open doors for you, and even say thank you when it’s you who asked for a favor. Our group felt special with their treatment. I would definity book this hotel again. Would also recommend this to friends.

      Location, staff,view

      Although not one of the mega flashy hotels in dubai this hotel offers a great location at a reasonable price for dubai. The room was so comfortable and roomy. The buffet breakfast was one of the best we have had and after many months travelling was a welcomed splurge not to have to battle the heat and language differences but be spoilt with an amazing breakfast choice. They cate efor all nationalities food wise with an extensive array. The reception was very helpful with information of how to get around and places to see although there is little in the way of printed matter available in the hotel for tourist information. So bring a good map with you and a guide book. We booked a desert safari through the hotel. More expensive than booking on line but we were after convenience at this stage. The staff handled it all effortlessly. Tip. Th strains are unbelievable packed so a taxi to the airport is worth considering for ease of mind.

      None worth mentioning

      My stay at the Riviera was a refreshingly pleasant one. I recommend the creek view rooms since the view not only includes that of the beautiful dubai creek but one can also see the tallest buildings in dubai as a background to the creek view. The service is also great. In terms of value for money I would give it 5 stars!!

      Last year I enjoyed my stay in a room with a view on the Creek side and this year I enjoyed my stay in a room on the Souk side. The hotel is situated near the Souk in old Deira and a short taxi ride from the airport. Although fully booked, the hotel floor was very quiet. If I have to travel to Dubai again in future, I will use this hotel again.

      Not too far from Dubai Airport and in a good location to the old town and the gold souk. Had a nice room with Creek view, but it was loud from the main road. We could hear the traffic although the windows were closed. The view over the creek was beautiful but I personally would prefer a room to the back of the hotel. Service and breakfast was good also.

The bathroom was very spacious , the room had enough space for us and our bags. The room has a balcony overlooking the creek. The view of the creek was amazing during the morning and night .

      Satisfactory”

      Well at first, they surprise me with a new tax when you check out of the hotel , although i come dubai for many times and they did not requeste that from me and i always stay at 4/5 stars hotel. Second : there is no swimming pool for a 4 stars hotel Third: no parking which make us go and look for a park opposit to the hotel and we rarley found a an empty park, actually people sometime fight for parking. For the staff they were very welcome, friendly and absolutely helpful, the breakfast was excellent and you have enough time from 6-11 , rooms were clean and size was not bad , location was excellent near to naif shop and other places But I'm sorry next time i will look for a better hotel.

      Riviera Hotel Dubai - Good Value for your Money!”

      The location is good, rooms are clean and the breakfast is really good!
      The whole hotel is quite outdated and has seen the best of time. Beach towels are like rags.

      This hotel is really fine considering the hotel prices in Dubai. The location is really good and the breakfast is really wonderful-this offers a variety of nternational food. Dinner restaurant is not really that good, service is very slow and the food is average. It is quite a pity that the hotel does not offer a swimming pool, instead they offer transport to public beaches and pick-up the guests early in the afternoon - too short! Regarding the staff, I would say - they are not too friendly but to be fair, nor unfriendly. An unpleasant incident occurs already upon arrival. Coming from Germany, (all international flights come in unholy hours) about 2:00 a.m., the reception kept on asking if we have already arranged a sightseeing tour for the next day. If not, he would book us for a tour the next day (which was then in a few hours). He tried to be persistent, I guess he gets commission on this. On the overall, the staff are quite non-committal to the guests. This definitely does not encourage you as a guest to ask for assistance. All in all, if you try to weigh the pros and cons, we can say, we can really recommend this hotel. The price is fair and the value is good!
