Unbelievable hotel with unbeatable location!
I had the best Dubai stay at the Sofitel. I have been visiting Dubai for many years now and have finally found a home away from home. The staff was unbelievably helpful and kind. They helped me with all my queries and custom requested where all accommodated. Unbelievable to say the least. Also the location is perfect. The metro is just outside and a huge plus when traveling during rush hour (otherwise you are stuck in traffic. The mall is also just a couple minuets away and accessed via an air-conditioned bridge. Lastly the views where simply breathtaking. What a hotel! I can only recommend!

Great hotel. Great location
Great location, within 300 feet from the tunnel that connect to Dubai Mall (15 mins). Modern hotel with all amenities. Several restaurants, we tried a couple and were good. Breakfast buffet is ample, with food from different countries.
