Amy Adejokun Section editor

We found Al Murooj to be closer to a resort than a hotel due to its size and facilities, so it's a great choice for those of you looking for a lively holiday. The rooms are spacious, there is a good range of facilities and a dynamic atmosphere. There is also a good choice of restaurants for those foodies out there - the Indian restaurant, Zaika, is particularly good and serves some . Although the hotel has a large business clientele which is reflected in the style of the rooms, the hotel does welcome a solid base of leisure guests looking for a varied facilities such as restaurants serving good food.

    Location 3.5 /10

    The hotel is in close proximity to the Jumeirah 1 area just off Sheikh Zayed Road, which is the main road that crosses Dubai from north to south. There isn't much in the surrounding area, but that is fairly common in Dubai as the action happens mainly in hotels and malls. The property is adjacent to Dubai International Financial City and is prominently situated 3 minutes away from the Convention Centre. Dubai International Airport is just a 10 minute drive away. Jebel Ali, Dubai Media City and Dubai Internet City is less than 20 minutes away.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The hotel has 247 rooms and the view tends to vary between the road, the Burj Khalifa and pool. The rooms are of a fairly good size and are decorated in what seems to be a running trend in Dubai hotels, neutral colours and touches of bright colour here and there. The furniture is wenge stained wood and there are usually fresh flowers in the rooms upon the guests' arrival to brighten up the place. The rooms feel cosy and clean and all have complimentary tea and coffee-making facilities as well as the usual commodities (iron and ironing board, hairdryer...). The bathrooms are spacious and have Rotana own-brand toiletries. All rooms have bathtubs.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    Middle Eastern glam is what Al Murooj is all about, with its bright carpets and aluminium and glass features that dress the lobby area. An Arabic style has been applied to the exterior of the building. Al Murooj sits on a hill next to a motorway (as most hotels in Dubai) and towers over its small pool at the back of the hotel which is a little small but pleasant. The hotel is divided into two parts: the first half is the hotel and the second part consists of villas to rent for residents of Dubai. The hotel's tennis courts are to the back of the resort, behind the villas but are accessible to in-house guests. The outdoor areas are divided with green foliage which helps break up the concrete monotony.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    There are ten food and beverage outlets in total. Latino House, Waterside, Zaika and Mawal are the hotel's speciality restaurants which are very pleasant. An effort has been made with the décor, especially in Latino House and Zaika. If you are looking to try some good Indian food, Zaika is the place to go. In the evenings, tables are also set up around the water feature outside. Pergolas serves buffet style meals at breakfast, lunch and dinner and is accessible to the right of the reception desk in the lobby. It is fairly pleasant but if Friday brunch isn't your thing, try the other restaurants as Pergolas does tend to get pretty full, as does the Double Decker pub, the hotel's English pub which also serves brunch inside and on its terrace. The other three outlets are coffee shops and snack bars found in the lobby and around the pool.

    To know

    Open in 2005, Al Murooj is not for holidaymakers looking for peace and quiet, but more for those of you looking for a lively stay, especially on Fridays during the Dubai brunch phenomenon.

    Most hotels in the city have mainly smoking rooms; Al Murooj also has non-smoking floors for guests wanting strictly non-smoking rooms for the smell.

    The hotel has a gym, 'Bodylines' which is the same for all Rotana hotels. There is also a Jacuzzi which has different timings for men and women, as well as separate steam and sauna areas for men/women. For overworked parents there is also a babysitting service as well as a kids' menu on offer upon request. Al Murooj is a four star resort.

      As impressive from the outside as it is on the inside, the Shangri-La occupies a towering sky-scraper and is primarily an establishment for people on business trips. The plethora of services on offer, the Chinese cuisine, the common areas, including the magnificent swimming-pool, the impeccable service and the care taken for the smallest of details, make for a very enjoyable place to stay, ideally located at a short distance from the sea.

      The hotel will be sure to seduce you right to your core - a haven of peace and tranquility, it is also set right in the middle of the shopping action. It is impossible not to be charmed by this palace which seems to have come straight out of A Thousand and One Nights. Indeed, it is a superb, moderately-sized establishment full of architectural extremes that are emblematic of the local culture, without forgetting its ideal location for shopping enthusiasts! Slap bang in the middle of the Burj Khalifa complex, the hotel sits right on the artificial lake that it shares with the Burj and the Dubai Mall. You are sure to fall in love with the delightful luxury and high level of comfort of this animated and truly privileged setting.

      Four Points hotels are a good-value four star brand managed by Sheraton. There are three in the city so be sure to have the exact name and address of the hotel before embarking in a taxi to avoid being dropped off at the wrong hotel. The three hotels are very different to one another so it is worth reading up to see which one would suit you best before booking. Being located right on Dubai's main road, Sheikh Zayed, the Four Points Sheikh Zayed Road is right in the middle of the action and has stunning views from its roof top pool; on a clear day it is possible to see landmark hotels such as the Atlantis and the Burj al Arab. Otherwise, in terms of comfort, it is a good bet that is suited to a range of clientele from business visitors to couples or groups of friends. Although the hotel welcomes families, there isn't much in terms of children's facilities.

      Aesthetically one of the best hotels in Dubai, as well as one of the best located but seriously lacking the service needed to go with the fantastic surroundings. Ideal for adults but could be seen as a little fussy for the kids who will nevertheless be very happy in the large pool looking out onto the Burj Khalifa Tower. Along with its great facilities the hotel also houses one of the most sought-after bars, the Neos, on the 63rd floor which is a real celeb hangout. Watch people's eyebrows raise slowly in an impressed arch as you tell them where you are staying...

      • Location 8.0

      Villa Rotana is one of the myriad Rotanas in the city. This one is located right on Sheikh Zayed road in the new town centre of Dubai. The hotel itself is quiet with very little atmosphere, however, the rooms are well appointed and modern. Rooms are fitted either with a fully-equipped kitchen or kitchenette, meaning that guests wanting to be independent when it comes to eating and drinking, can be. The hotel is a good place to stay for a couple of nights - it is clean, comfortable and pleasant in terms of decor. Although we found the hotel to be of a good standard, nothing really jumped out at us. The hotel is technically a four star, but we have downgraded it to a three star due to the lack of facilities on offer.

      The recently opened Rotana Rayaan Rose, now stands as the tallest hotel in the world at 333m high on the emblematic Sheikh Zayed Road. The newest addition to the Rotana chain catalogue, the Rose welcomes all types of visitors and has been especially popular with a local Emirati clientele. It is not a luxurious hotel, although it has all the expected mod-cons guests may want; it is also very well located. Not ideal for guests wanting to get some peace and quiet but an ideal base to be in the centre of the hustle and bustle of the city.

      The Towers Rotana may look in keeping with the Rotana brand from the exterior and lobby but has more of a design penchant in its restaurants as does the Media Rotana in Prego. Recently renovated, the rooms are still awaiting a refurbishment, but the food and beverage outlets look good. The Towers is ideal for young visitors, groups of friends and families alike. It is not a luxury hotel and it is not romantic either, but if you are the type of holidaymaker who likes to be in the thick of the hustle and bustle, then it is a good lively base to explore the city from.

      The lifestyle Armani Hotel Dubai is nothing short of stunning. With every angle and curve that has been carefully studied to give the desired effect, the hotel is without doubt one of the best in the city, which is a huge statement to make, especially in Dubai, where the standard of hotels is generally very high. Mr Armani has overseen every single detail of this hotel, from the scents used throughout the hotel, to the embossed chocolates sold in the deli on the ground floor. The result is astonishing. What separates the hotel from the rest is firstly, its location, right inside the Burj Khalifa, and second, the sense of space of the hotel. Slick, sophisticated and contemporary, the hotel is a veritable success. The only downfall is that you could be anywhere in the world as there is no reminder of the destination's culture and traditions. The hotel is best-suited to couples and friends looking for the crème de la crème in luxury.

      Part of the Leading Hotels of the World label, the prestigious H Hotel, formerly The Monarch, is unrivalled in every way and is easily one of the best, if not the best, hotel in the city. Exclusive, The H is quietly and self-satisfyingly elegant without being pretentious. Unlike the brash hotels where the quality doesn't always match expectations, The H is all about quality and sophistication, and although on the pricy side, is definitely worth saving that extra bit to stay here. Not only is the atmosphere relaxed, but the staff is friendly and efficient, and no expense has been spared to make the rooms beautiful, spacious, stylish and up to date technology-wise. Throw in a fantastic range of high quality restaurants and bars, and a good location, you have your perfect hotel! Ideal for all types of guests, whether for leisure or business, the luxurious high quality H Hotel is ideal for friend, families and couples alike. Walking into The H can be likened to the feeling of slipping into a hot steaming bath...

      The Burj Al Arab appears on the horizon, rises out of the fog along the coastline in Jumeirah, visible from skyscraper terraces all over the city, like a myth seen in books. A real gem in its architecture, seeing the legendary hotel, the only seven star hotel in the world, is like seeing the Taj Mahal in India. It is a real architectural feat that should not be dismissed for being too showy, too brash, too contemporary, but rather revered as a symbol of this city that is no less than over the top! The hotel sits quietly glimmering in the sun along a long and wide sandy beach. The interior takes a while to grow on you, but the services and facilities are irreproachable. It's definitely worth a stay at least for a night, or if it is too pricy for your budget then do drop by for tea, but book early.

Some parts of it are vast; others more intimate, but its multiple styles and modernity are plain for all to see. Don't miss out on all the restaurants and facilities here, indeed, every effort has been made to ensure the height of luxury and make yours a comfortable and pleasant stay. The fine design, bay windows, lighting effects and grand furniture combine to make this an ulra-stylish hotel that has successfully lured some of the world's best chefs to prepare its cuisine, including the Frenchman Pierre Gagnaire. The somewhat outstanding rooms also deserve a special mention.

Far from the madding crowds, this exclusive hotel is located on the dge of Dubai not too far from the airport but in an area that feels isolated away from the hustle and bustle of the city. A real haven of peace and quiet with a smart lodge atmopshere, this hotel is ideal to get away from it all. With sparkling facilities and spacious luxurious rooms, the Desert Palm specialises in equestrian activities and even has its own stables and polo club, including three hundred horses and four polo fields. Contemporary and arty, the hotel's interiors have been closely studied to give it the sharpest aesthetic aspect possible, whilst remaining extremely simple in using natural materials and fabrics throughout.

      This is the second Atlantis hotel in the world. Is Atlantis The Palm, the flagship resort on Dubai's first Palm Island, a gem of a hotel or a monster of excess? Actually, it's both of them! It is perhaps the hotel that best represents Dubai, built as it is from scratch between the sea and the desert. A symbol of grandiose delusions, it is nothing less than a 'kingdom of superlatives'. Next to this immense and (in places) kitsch resort with its multitude of ultramodern facilities and restaurants staffed by award-winning chefs, hotel residents and day-trippers alike can enjoy a huge aquatic park. It is like a city within a city, making it ideal for families, but if you are looking for charm and intimacy, you're probably better off elsewhere!
