Amy Adejokun Section editor

In-keeping with the Rotana chain's contemporary glass and aluminium structures, the Rihab Rotana hotel apartments is also modern and kitted out for groups or families wishing to rent out a serviced apartment for the duration of their stay. In the way of facilities there is everything one could need although in the way of restaurants, it is probably best to explore what the city has to offer as there isn't much variety here. A smart hotel apartment establishment ideal for guests wanting to be left alone by the staff.

    Rihab Rotana Dubai is located in the heart of Dubai. Near the Deira City Centre Shopping Mall, and 5 minutes walking distance from Deira City Centre Metro Station, it is about a mile away from Dubai International Airport and 32 miles from the World Trade Centre and the Creek Golf & Yacht Club. Otherwise there isn't much activity in the hotel's immediate surroundings, which is fairly common for hotels in the city centre.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    There are 134 studios and suites, of which 20 are connecting for large groups. All are very spacious and comfortable, decorated in a neutral colour scheme. The rooms look a little dull and could do with a bit of a spruce up. All rooms have complimentary tea and coffee making facilities and cable internet access for a fee. There is nothing particular to report back about this hotel apart from the fact that it is practical for guests looking for a serviced apartment as it is clean and well looked after. The bathrooms are attractive, tiled in matt black, and with Rotana own-brand toiletries. All bathrooms have a bath tub. The kitchens are fully-equipped for guests wanting to cook their own food. Bottled water is also replenished for free daily.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    The lobby is small, but bright and the staff is friendly. The hotel's small restaurant is right opposite the entrance. There is a lovely gym, of the Bodylines brand which is the same one used in all Rotana hotels. It is high up on a platform on its own, surrounded by glass with a great view of the city. Each machine has its own screen with wireless headphones. The hotel has a very pleasant roof top pool with fairly good sunbathing hours; there is a good view of the Burj Khalifa from here.

    Food and drink 5.70 /10

    There is a restaurant, the Moka Café, which is also a coffee shop by the reception opposite the entrance and is open 24 hours a day. The hotel has no other outlet, encouraging guests to venture out into the city at meal times. The hotel restaurant is pleasant enough, with a variety of international food.

    To know

    Open in the late 90s, the Rihab has been well-maintained although the rooms could do with a bit of a lift. The hotel does not sell alcoholic beverages. You will also notice that, like in all Rotana hotels, there is a water-saving initiative in all bathrooms by encouraging guests not to reuse towels. Founded in 1992, the Rotana group is a local chain that has properties all over the Middle-East and North Africa - the chain announces 70 properties by 2014. As the hotel is close to a small mosque, be aware that the call to prayer is audible from the hotel, which most guests actually enjoy. As the hotel has a healthy local clientele, keep in mind that this is not the kind of place you feel comfortable wearing revealing clothing especially at meals times.

      • Location 5.69

      The JW Marriott is ideal for fans of the traditional side of the Marriott hotel chain. Although the hotel does have some very good restaurants, the experience was unfortunately a disappointing one. The service was excellent but the décor of the hotel is uninspiring, dated and overall a bit drab, we are sorry to say. The distances from the rooms to the rest of the hotel can be large and it is easy to get lost. Some of the rooms have permanently locked balconies which give out onto an (indoor) atrium letting in very limited light and give sthe hotel as shopping mall feel. This is not a reflection on other Marriott hotels however, as the Renaissance just across the road is more contemporary and the newly-opened Dubai Marriott Harbour edition is a real step into the 21st Century.

      • Location 5.44

      The Rimal Rotana is part of the Emirati Rotana chain which has numerous properties all over the city. Rotanas are known for their modern aluminium and glass structures and are a good option for families as the rooms tend to be fairly spacious. Here, the ground floor is particularly contemporary all done up in white with the latest designer furniture, giving the hotel a fresh and modern feel. The Rimal is ideal for families or groups of friends. It is also fairly well-located just a short distance from the airport and from Deira, close to the Creek. The surrounding area is fairly pleasant with shops and local restaurants on the main road.

      Located alongside the Creek and at the heart of Dubai's famous golf club, the Park Hyatt offers superb facilities, its white buildings reflecting the style of an old Arabian palace topped with magnificent turquoise domes. The service, restaurants, spa, guest rooms and superbly stylish surroundings the hotel offers will undoubtedly leave a permanent impression on you, making this haven of peace and tranquillity the ideal destination for a wonderful honeymoon, unless you can't contemplate a holiday without a beach!

      • Easyopinions nc
      • Value for money 7.17
      • Location -

      The chic Raffles Hotel is one of the larger more obviously opulent hotels in the city. With its instantly-noticeable pyramid structure and stereotypical Egypt-inspired interiors, the hotel has been a landmark in the area since it was erected in 2007. The hotel is situated close to Bur Dubai, the new town centre, so it isn't too far from the Dubai Mall/Burj Khalifa complex. The structure has a shopping centre atmosphere which isn't unpleasant if you want to be left alone by staff to get on with it. Raffles is a great choice if you're here on business, but its facilities are varied enough to cater for families. Raffles is an upmarket hotel, so not ideal if you're on a budget, but great if you need to combine work and play due to its location close to the new centre and adjoined to the WAFI shopping centre. However, Raffles is a hotel where size matters - it will not leave you disappointed by its room sizes, that's for sure!

      The Manhattan Avenue is a moderately sized hotel hidden in the backstreets of the city close to a small mosque. There is nothing particular about the surroundings apart from the fact that there is less traffic noise and that you feel a bit more immersed in the ?real' life that unravels day-to-day in Dubai, mainly due to being surrounded by local residential blocks. Everything at the Manhattan Avenue is very average from top to bottom, but it is a good option for holidaymakers on a very tight budget wanting to spend a few days in the city. The hotel is drab and dull and could be a little cleaner. However the staff is willing and friendly.

      City Seasons Hotel, not to be confused with City Seasons Suites, (although part of the same group), is great value for money for guests looking for something not too flashy but comfortable and pleasant. The staff here is extremely kind and helpful making a stay here enjoyable. The hotel is fairly large whilst staying manageable and the atmosphere is relatively easygoing. Ideal for all type of holidaymakers, from couples to families and groups, this hotel, although hasn't got the luxury edge, is a good find.

      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.

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!

      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.

      The all-new Intercontinental hotel opposite the Festival City marina has what it takes to turn rivals green with envy! 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.

      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!

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.
