Verified reviews from real guests

How does it work?

It starts with a booking

The only way to leave a review is to first make a booking. That's how we know our reviews come from real guests who have stayed at the property.

Followed by a trip

When guests stay at the property, they check out how quiet the room is, how friendly the staff is, and more.

And finally, a review

After their trip, guests tell us about their stay. We check for naughty words and verify the authenticity of all guest reviews before adding them to our site.

Stayed there a few times and always had a great time, pool and beach facilities are very good,BUT beware this is a very expensive hotel and your end bill can be huge.Add 20% on to the Booking.com price for starters for local taxes.They also take 1000 dirham a day for 'expenses ' so have plenty of credit on your card if you are staying for a week or 2 with a family, there are much better value hotels in dubai for families. Booking.com should state the full cost,(+ 20% taxes ) don't try and make the cost look cheaper that what it actually is, be upfront with people from the start please.

Resturants are very expensive, in fact over the top for what you get. Beers at the pool are approx 10 euro, normally costs about 3-4 euro. Breakfast is 110 euro for 3 people, again a rip off. Normal evening meal for 3 at the Dow and Anchor approx 180 euro. Again beware of the end bill at this hotel, it will be an expensive one.

For those who want to get away from the razzle and dazzle and enjoy discreet luxury, the Oberoi is for you! Serene, elegant, quality service, attentive staff, personalised guidance through their facilities and services make this an unforgettable place to stay. It's not just a hotel; it's like staying as a guest in a palace. And you can take a bath with a glass of win and look over the Dubai skyline too.

The Oberoi - with foresight perhaps - is located in Business Bay which is still under development so that unless you request, you may be lodged overlooking another Dubai building site. And if you use public taxis, make sure you take the hotel phone number or identify very local landmarks as not all public taxi drivers yet know it, though it is within easy reach of the Burj Khalifa.

Absolutely outstanding and luxurious atmosphere, very helpful and creative stuff, fantastic architecture. We loved the romantic boat trips on the water canals among the lovely lit buildings. Wide and well-equipped beach, warm and clear sea. Special thanks to Ms Viktoria for the gulf villa, which compensated us for temporarily closed Wild Wadi Waterpark.

Nothing major but the facilities of the SPA were a bit poor (very small Finnish sauna, the steam room insufficiently hot) comparing with the whole resort. We also lacked the information about the closed Wild Wadi Waterpark during the booking process on booking.com (we got this info only after receiving the booking confirmation from the hotel..)

Thanks housekeeper! In fact the whole resort is very nice, with beautiful landscaping, great and clean beach. With me all the staff were very attentive and I felt like my family!

- Proximity to the Dubai mall, the fountain, and the cafe's around it. - Furniture, specially the lobby. - The landscaping around the pool and the hotel cafe. - Ms. Amii from the business center and Mr. Bajuhn from the luggage service were of great help and support with genuine smiles and friendly attitudes.

I would call this the "Greedy" hotel, specially when compared to any other hotel in Dubai, I decided to stay in it despite the premium difference they charge to indulge myself and my family, but unfortunately that indulgence never showed up!: - They charged me an extra daily charge for my 7 years old daughter (the only hotel that did this ever). - We have to do a round 2 cleaning after the housekeeping. - The amenities/refills are poor (below a 4 stars hotel I would say). We usually don't really use the tooth brush, hair comb, sewing kit etc, but they are nice to see a round, shows that the hotel is taking care of the little details. We learned that they won't provide them unless you ask for them, which we really didn't appreciate. Yes you have to ask for a new packed soap because they won't put a new one as long as the tiny one you opened few days back didn't vanish. - Generic attitude is way far from every other 5 stars hotel we visited in Dubai. Smiles (whenever they flash) are the fake type. This is my very first negative feedback about the hotel, I really hope that their management spend sometime reading feedback (beside planing on how to cut cost) and improve on the tiny things that really matter, unless they will rely only on the advantage of being close to the Dubai mall.

The room view on burj Khalifa.

Well its not easy to find taxis in that area, so I booked one a few hours ahead and went down on time to find the doorman giving it to someone else.. I asked if that was my taxi and he said yes! So I had to talk to the guy myself to step out of it because it was reserved for me. The next day I had the exact same thing but this time the taxi had already left with another customer from the hotel though I was on time.. That cost me a very important meeting, when I spoke to the manager the doorman who gave it to the customer blamed me for being late but I wasn't (he knew that it was reserved for me because he was the one who called me on my room to come down when it arrived)!! I was very upset. On the same day I left my room at 4pm leaving the "clean up my room" sign on, I came back late at night seeing everything the way it was, I called the housekeeping manager and after investigating the matter he blamed me for not putting the sign on when they passed by my room at 5:30pm!! Its a shame they had to lie to my face and blame me for their mistakes just to clear their names out. And by the way I didn't even get an apology for any of that even though I informed the managers about these incidents. I was paying for a service that I wasn't getting.. Im never going back there again.

We had a wonderful experience at Raffles. They had run out of non smoking rooms, so they upgraded us to a suite. What a delightful treat! The room was spacious, beautifully decorated, had a deck and a wonderful view. We had signed up for the club lounge, and it was well worth it. They had a grand breakfast buffet, as well as afternoon tea and evening cocktails and appetizers. We used the gym and the pool and loved both. Next time I am in Dubai, I will definitely be staying at Raffles.

Absolutely nothing!

Beautiful property, butler staff (only) was great, the food was exceptional.

My nightmare stay in the Burj Al Arab hotel started when after being asked at every turn did I stay in the hotel, security stopped me on the outer exterior of the property on the side of the Burj while leaving an open gated area and said "You can't go back there it's for guests only I became shocked that she didn't ask if I stayed at the hotel she then said she thought I had reservations for a restaurant there (As a guest of the property I was very offended) She should have simply ask did I stay at the hotel/ I then had a concierge (Oscar) ask me to check my ID (because I left me key in the room) he thumbed through every page in my passport and commented on places I've been instead of just checking the photo ID, afterwards he said he's not the person to give me another key.I am still trying to figure that one out ?/ and something I would never expect from any luxury hotel happened, I had bugs biting me upstairs in my suite I of course complained to management, she saw the bug bites and said if they give me a doctor I would have to pay to see one (the parametric came to the room and gave me bug bite medication) The manager then told me that she and her coleagues would meet me at check out (she was no where to be found when I checked out (She lied to me) I was told later by Vishal another manager she left early because of Ramadan scheduling and that she was aware of the scheduling before she told me she would see me at check out...

The hotel is beautiful, with great scenery.

I rented a room with a "development view" and when the confirmation came back it said there might be some noise that would interfere with the comfort of my stay. We were woken at 630 am on a Saturday by the loudest construction you've ever heard. Staff were completed unsympathetic, saying we'd already got a discount. They should NOT be renting out those rooms, directly facing the construction and you should not be helping them. It was so disappointing and still really, really expensive!

The hotel is working with some private taxi drivers who usually charge much more than city taxis. As I am a frequent traveller to Dubai, I knew this and avoid using these taxis. But there was no assistance or explanation from hotel staff to other visitors in this regard. I didn't like this. Besides, there were always some noise either from other guests or cleaners in the floor I was staying that was not good.

Location of this Hotel is excellent for shopping as Al Ghurair Shopping Mall is just across the road on opposite side and Reef Mall and Nisar Gallarie is also at 5 min walk. Lots of eating out let's nearby and Metro (Union Station) is also few meters away. The staff at reception and restaurant is good, humble and cooperative.

Lots of things bad about this Hotel. Worst is its bathroom size and room. It is a bit small. The smell in rooms and everywhere in hotel is although some kind of spray but that is not fragrant at all. Bad choice. Breakfast is also not good, although it is still presentable. It could have been bett. Wifi is Horrible with capital H. Don't ask for it as you lil pay for wifi and still not have wifi for dong skype, FaceTime etc. yes you may quickly check emails, if you can see your inbox in 3-4 min as after that time it will get disconnected. Not a good value for this much money. I won't come back here.

I stayed at the Khalidia hotel with a colleague for a conference. The staff were very helpful and friendly, particularly Shiraz who looked after us as though we were royalty throughout our stay. We were upgraded from a 2 bedroom to 3 bedroom apartment, which was vast, with separate kitchen, dining area, lounge area and even a work area too. The location is good, and it is only a short walk (if it's not too hot!!) from Union metro station. We only ate breakfasts at the hotel, and this was fairly typical of breakfasts in similar hotels in Dubai - a mix of hot and cold buffet with omelettes made fresh to order. No complaints there either. We were leaving at midnight, so the staff held our suitcases and provided somewhere for us to change before the journey back to the airport free of charge.

Being on one of the major thoroughfares in Dubai has its advantages, but road noise permeating the bedroom is not one of them! It is no worse than other hotels I've stayed at in similar locations and there's probably little that can be done about it. Be warned, however, that the road seems to be busy 24/7! Also, a minor niggle but the wireless internet in the room was for one device only, so if you want to log several devices on you would have to pay for each one.
