    • To know

    • As the first hotel on the City's main road, The H has the coveted address of One Sheikh Zayed Road. In the heart of the fashionable new business district, the hotel is a short drive from the city's main convention centres and is within a 20 minute drive of the international airport.

    • There are 183 sumptuous rooms divided into six categories: Deluxe, Executive, Executive Suites, two Presidential Suites, a Sky Suite and a Monarch Suite. There are also 53 Deluxe Serviced Residences for long-term stays. All rooms are extremely tastefully decorated with a strong Arabic influence in mind, whilst staying contemporary. Most rooms have rosewood floors and exposed beams on the ceilings, as well as large floor-to-ceiling windows letting in plenty of light and boasting magnificent views of the city, all the way to Jumeirah. Even the lead-in category, the Deluxe, is well worth it with its beautiful leather-topped furniture, lavish colourful silk fabrics, wireless internet and open-plan layout. The size ranges from 50 to 64m².

      All rooms also have solid pear wood furniture, king-size beds adorned with the most luxurious Egyptian cotton linen. In every room the beds have a prominent headboard bearing a stone entablature inscribed with a romantic Arabic poem adding to the hotel's unique atmosphere. The indulgent bathrooms are also something to look forward to, with their large bay windows; guests can feel like they are floating above the city whilst bathing. The main different with the Executive rooms is the size which ranges from 56 to 64m², allowing space for an open plan sitting room area. They also have all-encompassing bathrooms with televisions screens. This category comes with a butler upon request. Our favourite room however, at a massive 250m², is the Sky Suite which hangs between The H's two towers. Attached only to one tower, the Sky Suite is really something that will make your mouth hang open is disbelief. The breathtaking views over the Satwa area right over to the ocean is the diamond in the crown. Needless to mention the meticulous care and attention to detail and décor over the room's two floors - it is a real feat of interior design.

      All bathrooms have Salvador Ferragamo amenities for ladies and Essenza di Zegna for men which further reinforces the essence of luxury that flows throughout the hotel.

    • From the exterior, the 33 storey hotel looks like your average glass and aluminium Dubai structure but inside is another world. The very large, high ceilinged lobby, despite its shopping centre size, feels intimate and stepping does not feel daunting for the first time visitor. The entire lobby is kitted out in a warm honey-coloured marble and the atrium ceiling is veiled with elegant cream sails to keep the lobby cool. In the centre of the lobby is a low dais, where guests can find the coffee shop, Arcadia, which large potted palm trees seal off from the rest of the activity. And talking about activity, there was hardly any at all, despite the hotel running on full capacity because the staff is so efficient. There were no guests hanging around, impatiently waiting to check in or out. The marble floors are sliced with rosewood in some places which helps to add warmth to what could have easily been an oversized, sterile, and unappealing space. The reception is to the left of the entrance and instead of it being one long desk, there are several individual desks. Guests will also notice large colourful abstract paintings dotted around the hotel; these pieces are original works by local artist, Ismad Zuhera. The paintings add a personal touch to the public areas of the hotel which gives it that extra je ne sais quoi which further distinguishes the hotel from the rest.

      Most of the restaurants are found on the ground floor dotted off different angles of the lobby, such as Mizaan, the cocktail bar, One on One. Restaurants are also located along the first floor gallery, where guests will find Diademas, the swanky hotel cigar lounge, as well as the very fashionable Okku, serving divine Japanese dishes and the popular Ruth's Chris Steakhouse.

      As if it wasn't enough, the hotel also has a Quantum Health Club with daily exercise classes, a beautiful outdoor pool, sauna and Jacuzzi, and an opulent Mandara Spa to top it all off. Nothing falters here.

      There is nothing meretricious about The H Hotel, as every detail has been paid attention to with great care and the finishing touches have been executed with quality in mind.

    • In terms of food and beverage outlets, guests will not go hungry or thirsty! There are seven restaurants and bars altogether. The international Mizaan, the Arcadia 24 hour coffee shop and the One on One Cocktail bar are all situated on the ground floor. The sophisticated Diademas Cigar Lounge, the very fashionable Okku Japanese restaurant, and the popular Ruth's Steakhouse can be found on the first floor, and the Quantum Pool bar is by the pool on the fourth floor. All outlets serve high quality products and boast an excellent standard of service. Our favourite was the extremely chic yet casual Okku restaurant with its jelly fish tanks hanging above the bar and sublime authentic and innovative Japanese food; definitely one to try out at lunch or dinner, even if you are not staying at the hotel. Reservations are compulsory for all the hotel's restaurants as they tend to get very full.
    • The H is without doubt one of the best, if not the best, hotel in the city. With its exceptional standards in all departments, it is an all-round winner. The lavish, elegant interiors are the highlight of the hotel. The designers are Quen Chui and Hazel Wong who have succeeded in making The H exude sophistication and quality.

      • Location 7.7

      The Media Rotana, part of the Rotana chain, is one of the brand's largest hotels. Contemporary in its décor and functional in its design the hotel welcomes both a business and leisure clientele. A fairly good base to explore the city from as it is centrally located. Families are also welcome and there is a play area dedicated to young children which is rather rare in the city. The restaurants are varied, although Channels could do with a change of atmosphere. Prego however, is lively and the food is fairly tasty. A good quality hotel that just needs a spa to heighten its leisure experience.

      With its superb white sand beach, the Westin Dubai is a spacious, brand new hotel complex with beautiful gardens and several swimming pools. Its style is somewhat impersonal, but it offers a good level of comfort and its many facilities make it a great place for families and sporty types to stay.

    • The Address Dubai Mall The Address Dubai Mall The Address Dubai Mall

      • Value for money 6.7
      • Location 7.62

      The Address Dubai Mall is one of five stylish luxury properties of the same chain and is found inside the actual mall. The hotel feels very much like part of the mall inside the lobby but, much in the same vein as the other The Address hotels, the rooms are comfortable, stylish and spacious. The Address is all about design; however the service leaves a lot to be desired. Another highlight of the hotel is its obviously very central location which makes it a great base to explore the city from! However, a room at The Address comes at a price, so not great for visitors on a budget. In terms of clientele, the hotel welcomes a wide range of guests, from all four corners of the globe, from families to couples to groups alike. To sum up, The Address Dubai Mall is an attractive hotel, although less so than its sister hotel The Address Burj Dubai, where service is close to zero and that is overpriced in that the food isn't up to scratch for the prices charged. Furthermore, there is little atmosphere.

      Traders is a very well located hotel of manageable size which welcomes mainly a business clientele but is trying to adapt to a leisure base and is a great choice for holidaymakers staying in the city for a long weekend and who want to be at the heart of the action. However do keep in mind that driving in Dubai is essential and therefore it is difficult to walk anywhere in the city centre. Traders is Shangri-La's four-star ?value for money' label, which can be found in Asia and in the Emirates. We liked this hotel very much due to the exceptional service standards and the general no-fuss light and fresh atmosphere.

      • Location 6.76

      The Crowne Plaza Deira, formerly The Renaissance (Marriott), is one of three hotels of the same chain in the city. It is a lively hotel with fairly good food outlets such as Spice Island, Sails, the Tiki Bar and Harry's. The rooms are on the small side and the decor is dated and dull. However the hotel does have one of the best roof-top pools in Dubai! The Crowne Plaza Deira is ideal for families due to the atmsophere, the pool and the food outlets. Not recommended for couples as it is not particularly luxurious or romantic.

      • 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.

      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.

      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!

      Built on a private estate of a 150 acres, the Desert Palm is one of our favourite boutique hotels in Dubai and one of the city's best-kept secrets. 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.

      Zabeel Saray took us by surprise by its sheer size, but for a luxury family resort of this size, the interior architects have done a great job in making it as opulent as a boutique hotel. Dripping in red and blue glass, velvet upholstered throne-like chairs and a fountain bigger than the average apartment all just in the lobby, gives this hotel a majestic appearance that is hard to rival. The service standards are top-notch and the facilities on offer are as exclusive as in the latest Mondrian in New York. The Jumeirah Hotel Group, has once again, surpassed itself with this latest addition to an already glimmering portfolio. Ideal for a wide-ranging clientele, from families to couples, the resort has something for everyone.
