    Fabulous 8.8 From 361 reviews

    Poor 2.0
    I was disappointed from the moment I arrived. No early chech-in was allowed, so the lobby was full of guests waiting for rooms. A guy laid down on the sofa in front of me to take a nap while waiting. It was not pleasant to see. Very long wait for check-ins during the holidays, but the hotel magager and staff didn't care. When I walked into my room, I realized it was not a new hotel that just opened in 2018. It was an old hotel that changed the name to "Radisson Blu" and got a facelift. The room clearly showed its age from the dirty carpet to the repainted ceiling. The A/C was old and it was the loudest. The furniture seemed to be new but the decor looked tired and boring. The shelves had dust here and there which showed poor quality of house keeping. While I checked in at 3pm, the luggage wasn't delivered until 9pm after I called the operator. I requested the hotel to add a bed for my son. The extra bed wasn't free and I called a few times to get it. The worst experience was when we came back after midnight on new year's eve, we found the housekeeping collected all towels but left us NO towel and NO bath mat in the bathroom. We were shocked by the horrible service provided by housekeepers in this hotel. I left tips on the pillow every morning but it didn't guarantee good service. I called the operator twice that night and waited for towels until 2:30am. No one came. It is a 5-star hotel for real? I cannot believe I paid over USD500 per night to stay at this hotel. Worst ever!

    Didnt like that they do not serve pork especially since they do serve alcohol. Can you be a half halal hotel. Noise from the outside restaurant area, live music etc was way too loud in our 6th floor superior room. No coordination is the restaurant, one person took us to our table, another took our drinks and food order, a different person served the food, someone cleared our starters and then offered to bring the desert menu before we had even eaten our mains. While eating some drunk "guest" came up to our table to ask the waiter how to get out of this "f##king" restaurant. If he was a guest of the restaurant he was obviously heavily intoxicated and should have been made to leave. Room service breakfast below standard. Eggs requested with runny yoke were a fried to make them hard, butter and spreads provided but no toast. For a fairly new hotel the quality of finish in the rooms and bathrooms is below that of a 5 start hotel. With that said staff were friendly and eager to please although a request to the conceirge 2 days before we arrived and we were told he would get back to us went unanswered. Over all you get the impression that the places needs some polishing in the service area.

    Modern Dubai up close
    The hotel staff went out of their way to help when we arrived and discovered the conference scheduled at the hotel had been moved to another local hotel, literally while we were en route from the USA. We upgraded our rooms and the staff gave us adjoining for our ease; we enjoyed the amazing variety of breakfast items as well as access to the Business lounge for mid-day or late evening beverages and snacks. The pool was perfect for our granddaughter. A staff member provided information to help us get on a city tour. Lovely! The beds provided the best rest I have had in many weeks; my husband, however, said the pillows were too large for him..... I am somewhat odd about cleanliness but the hotel was above my expectations! We also enjoyed the walk-in shower, robes and more. Coffee in the room was of superb quality. Just wish I could have stayed longer!

    Few teething issues but good hotel
    The first room provided was on the 4th floor, directly above the bar - this was not appropriate as it was loud until the late night, the hotel was aware that we were travelling with a young child as I had informed them beforehand. Unfortunately, the hotel was full and there were no other rooms. So not a great start. However, on the second day, we were moved to the 19th floor and this room was good. The staff were generally friendly and helpful (however, the one touch service was unreliable and our simple requests were not met on several occasions, we had to follow-up). We found the pillows a bit too soft but otherwise, a decent stay. Good sized rooms and the hotel is in a good location in Business Bay. Would stay again. Pool is quite small for size of hotel but good enough.

    Excellent staff and very nice location
    Everything in this hotel was near perfect - location, food, room service etc. It’s at about 10-15 mins by taxi from Burj Khalifa (Dubai Mall). At the time of writing this review it costs about 12-15 AED from Dubai Mall to this hotel. Burj Khalifa is visible from many of the rooms as advertised. What I liked the most about this hotel is the staff. Amongst many wonderful staff, I remember Alex who made us feel very welcome when we were checking in. He also gave a call a while after checking in - if everything was okay. The breakfast spread is good with options for vegetarians and different cuisines. This has been one of my best experience with many different international brands of hotels. I would highly recommend this place. On a side note, outside this hotel mang Limousine taxis are available. The Limousine taxis are definitely better than the standard Dubai taxis but we aware you pay almost 1.5x fare of the normal taxis even through you may be told by staff outside that the fare of Limousine taxis is ‘similar’ to normal ones.
