Great Location, Facilities and Fantastic Staff”

I have been coming to Dubai for the last 10years and stayed at many Hotels but Sofitel Downtown and the one at JBR is by far the best one in terms of the Room layout, Facilities and location at both spots. I would also like to mention that your employee Meru at Sofitel Downtown was fantastic, very professional and helpful and made our stay a lot more pleasant with her assistance at all times. You need to hire more staff like Meru. I believe she is from Kazakhstan.

Everything in Dubai is expensive, but if you can afford this hotel, don't think about it - just book it! Excellent modern hotel, with more-than-amazing views of Downtown Dubai and Burj Khalifa. Location great as well - close metro station and short tunnel walk to Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa. And as a bonus, they were nice to let me in the room at 9AM after red-eye-flight. Great staff!

Excellent hotel.. superb customer services”

Hotel location is number 1.. next to dubai mall train station (2 min walk only).. clean hotel, they clean the room twice a day without calling them.. staff are very friendly.. i was guided by a good lady called "Ruby" from day one the staff will never forget your name and they will come to ask you if you need anything whenever they see you walking in the lobby.. staff will always walk you to the hotel resturant, lounges, taxi if you are leaving, swimming pool area. Basically they will never let you go by your own by directing you only (always escort you to the places you are for).. this is top services that we would like to see everywhere.. thanks sofitel staff for making my trip exciting

Over priced - especially during Dec end”

We made a booking in this hotel especially because the hotel is close to Burj Khalifa and hence, we thought it would be convenient with a young child to watch new year fireworks from the open air pool there. Before making the booking we had checked this from the staff over a call and paid a handsome amount to stay in the hotel for 2 nights (30th and 31st Dec). All of it with the objective of letting us enjoy the fireworks from the comfort of hotel in less crowd. To our huge disappointment, the hotel had a new year party in the pool area on 31st evening, and in the morning we were told that hotel guests enjoy free entry there while in the evening, the entry was denied saying that it is paid! We argued mentioning that if they had told us before, we probably would not have stayed there (paying the crazy amount) and would have just paid to get access to the party (which was at least 4 times less). They didn't listen and thankfully, my husband booked a table in one of the restaurants in Dubai Mall and we could enjoy amazing view comfortably from there. However, we felt that there wasn't a need to stay in this hotel then and we could have stayed in another decent hotel at may be one third the price, booked a table in the restaurant at Dubai Mall and it would be the same experience in one third the price. We raised it to the manager while checking out and she was the only good thing in this whole experience at Sofitel. She listened to us and offered us to waive off somethings and also offered a better rate whenever we visit the hotel next (if at all we do now!)

Great location, 5 mins walk to sky train, 10 mins walk to Dubai Mall & Burj Khalifa. Room was spacious n clean. F&B was good. The only complaint was joining the hotel group tour called "Planet" to the desert safari. The tour driver was very unfriendly n he drove rough during the whole journey. Some of us feel motion sickness. And the ATV we ride at the desert was not in good condition n we have to ask few times for refreshments which was included in our tour package. Unpleasant experience with "Planet"
