Amy Adejokun Section editor

British by name, but Irish-owned, the first thing that springs to mind is the Bonnington's impressive display of wall o wall, floor to ceiling, book-match marble! Heavy and cold, the lines and materials, are too masculine to be defined as quintessentially British. The hotel's name is as British as it gets as the decor in public areas have a more contemporary Middle-Eastern feel, whereas the rooms look like a cross between the latter and Swedish design.

    Location

    Located in the emerging Jumeirah Lake Towers area, it is within a short drive of the Jumeirah beach area. The buildings around the hotel were largely still under construction when we visited, so there isn't too much to keep you busy in the immediate surroundings. There are plans to put a man-made

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The rooms, although a little dark, are very attractive in design. The masculine theme continues here with dark mahogany walls with a darker exposed grain mimicking the grain in the grey marble all over the hotel. Our favourite part however, was the designer bathrooms enclosed by frosted glass walls and sealed off by sliding glass doors, adorned with round wash basins and sliced fountain taps as well as a free-standing bath tub. All rooms also have a separate shower cubicle and Bonnington own-brand amenities. The rooms are otherwise comfortable with all the expected mod-cons including complimentary tea and coffee-making facilities, which is fast-becoming a trend in most Dubai hotels. All the rooms at the hotel are non-smoking.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    Spread over 11 floors, the Bonnington has 208 hotel rooms. As you enter the lobby, it is not an exaggeration to say that the designer has gone marble-mad! There isn't a surface that isn't marble clad! The staff at reception are very friendly. To the back of the reception there is the Authors' Lounge bar furnished with a high-backed contemporary take on smoking-parlour arm chairs. The marble-mahogany decoration is broken up a little by bright orange transparent flower-pots. The Bonnington is the sort of place that has a golden eagle bought at an event like the Affordable Art Fair, perches proudly in the lobby - a gift from the owner's wife apparently.

    We especially like Healey's Bar and its rooftop terrace with a large glass slab as a table top in the centre allowing guests to look straight through at the bar area downstairs! There are some great views of the surrounding skyscrapers which are great in number, so even far from the centre of Dubai, one can still feel part of the action!

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    In the basement there are two restaurants, one of which is still undergoing work. The Cavendish, the hotel's only working restaurant for the moment, serves à la carte lunch and dinner and a buffet breakfast. It showcases even more marble, but looks comfortable with pearly white leather banquettes lining the walls and fresh yellow flowers which helps to bring some life to the otherwise cold room. Our favourite, however, was the somewhat eccentric Healey's bar, which is a welcome surprise in this marble fortress. There is a range of imported alcohol here so guests will feel right at home here.

    To know

    Newly opened in September 2009, the Bonnington is part residence, part hotel as with many hotels in Dubai. Irish-owned, the Bonnington is part of a small chain with a couple of hotels in England: the Gillette Tower near Heathrow and the Cavendish in Eastbourne. The hotel also has a well-equiped gym where most of the equipment is brand new.

        Superbe hôtel avec un accueil et un service de chambre irréprochable. Nous sommes arrivés très tard et nous avons tout de même été accueilli chaleureusement avec un jus de fruit frais pressé et un large sourire.

      • Value for money 6.92
      • Location 5.5

      Fairly well-located, in Deira, close to the Creek, the Sheraton Deira sits on its own on Al Mateena Road; one of the rare streets lined with palm trees, pavements, shops and local restaurants. Although not busy, there is a very local feel around the area, which gives the hotel an extra calm atmosphere. A smallish four star property, the Sheraton Deira is ideal for visitors looking to stay at a hotel within a chain they recognise. The rooms are comfortable but there isn't much else is terms of entertainment or restaurants. Not ideal for a family, not a luxury hotel, so best-suited to short-term visitors with an average budget looking for a no-frills, no fuss hotel.

      Grosvenor House is an establishment primarily designed for businessmen, but it won't fail to impress guests who are used to a certain level of luxury. Its interior is extremely trendy, as is its evening entertainment, and the food here is excellent. The hotel occupies a high-rise building, the rooms of which are decorated in soft tones (making them all the more restful) and you will very soon realise that this hotel, which mixes elegance and modernity, pays special attention to the slightest detail!

      Despite the Sofitel's bland image, it is one of our favourite hotels in the city due to its all-round good-value and location. A French brand, the company has ensured that no matter where you are, there are French touches in the service and in the facilities, which distinguishes it from the rest. One thing's for sure is that if you like your baguettes, this is the place to stay! Ideally located in the up and coming trendy JBR (Jumeirah Beach Resort) district, the hotel sits just across the street from the beach and a couple minutes' walk from the main outdoor boardwalk of cafés and restaurants. The food is so good at the Sofitel that you probably won't want to leave the hotel anyway! Perfect for a range of clientele from business to groups, families and couples, the Sofitel remains in our top ten for quality.

      The Address Dubai Marina, not to be confused with the other Address hotels in Dubai, is located halfway between the city centre, Bur Dubai, and the up and coming 'JBR' (Jumeirah Beach Resort) area, which is handy if you are going to be zooming between the two during your stay. True to The Address style, this hotel has beautiful interiors, comfortable rooms and good service, however, it lacks atmosphere due to its shopping centre aspect. The breakfast here is one of the highlights, as is the beautiful freeform roof-top pool, which is one of the largest in the city. The hotel is ideal for a range of guests, from groups of friends to families and couples.

      The Movenpick Jumeirah Beach Hotel is the perfect all-rounder if you're going to be spending a holiday in Dubai. Situated in the up and coming Jumeirah Beach area, it is in a prime location right across the street from the main beach. A five star hotel with excellent standards and a good general holiday atmosphere, it is a great place to choose whether in a group of friends, as a family or as a couple. However, compared to other hotels in the city, the hotel lacks a stronger luxury aspect to be a five star, which is why it has been awarded four stars by our reviewing journalist, The highlight of the hotel is its wonderful pool deck, which overlooks the sea.

      A good family hotel! Comprehensive and classic facilities come together in this tower - admittedly a long way from the airport.

What's more, the hotel is located in a residential area with all the amenities you will need and close to one of the few public beaches in the Emirates.

      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.

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.

      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!
