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 7.15 /10

    Located within 15 minutes of Dubai International Airport and close to the Deira business centre, the hotel is at the heart of the city. The hotel is not far from the Creek area, the original part of the city where the gold and spice souks can be found, as well as a general local buzz amidst this fast-moving, built up metropolis.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    There are 250 deluxe rooms spread over the six floors of the hotel. The rooms are extremely comfortable and although all decorated in the same neutral style, there are some small pleasant touches like the ashtrays and the discreet lighting. The rooms are well isolated so although the hotel is located in a central area and under a flight path, the rooms are quiet. The Club rooms have the added benefit of free access to a lounge area mainly used by the hotel's business clientele, as in most four star plus hotels in the city. There are also a range of suites which look the same as the deluxe rooms with an extra seating area and access to the Club Lounge (where guests can have separate meals and access to a business centre). For families or large groups of people there are 64 connecting rooms ? this must be enquired about at the time of booking. For guests requiring specifically non-smoking rooms, request a room on the sixth floor.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The hotel is located on a busy corner of Salahuddin Street and is close to other hotels where guests can book to have lunch or dinner if a change from the good quality Traders main restaurant is desired. The hotel has six floors, so is not quite a skyscraper, hence the more relaxed atmosphere you will find here. The only real downside to this simple no fuss hotel is its indoor pool. As far as indoor pools go, it is pleasant enough, but Dubai hotels tend to have pleasant roof top pools which are great for sunbathing and evening drinks; unfortunately as the hotel is under a flight path it would have been too noisy for guests. There is also a well-equipped gym open 24 hours with individual screens and wireless headphones. The hotel has a steam and sauna area but there is no spa; a masseuse is outsourced, so guests must book early for a treatment.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The hotel has one restaurant to the left of reception as you enter the lobby, called Junction. The food here is served mainly as a buffet and is of very good quality. There is a wide variety of starters, mains, desserts and it's all very tasty! There are a variety of cooking styles to suit most tastes, from international to Asian fusion, and the ingredients taste fresh. The spread is well presented and although there is a canteen atmosphere here, the service is excellent and there is rarely a queue. The Junction is casual and relaxed. Otherwise for refreshments there is also the Lobby Lounge and Juice Bar which do the trick although don't expect anything fancy! The Chameleon bar tends to be open in the evenings and lends itself more to evening drinks. Open from 6pm to 3am, guests can have fusion cocktails here whilst listening to love music most evenings (there is no live music on Saturdays). Guests are also permitted to smoke in this area.

    To know

    Traders opened in 2004 and looked brand new when we visited in January 2010. It is a four star property of extremely good quality and excellent value for money. The service is excellent, as for its mother brand, Shangri-La. The hotel is customer-focussed and therefore values customer feedback which is how the management keeps its standards in check. There is free wireless internet throughout public areas of the hotel and cable internet in the rooms at a charge. The hotel also offers a complimentary shuttle to the beach 20 minutes away - guests must check the schedule with reception upon arrival. The hotel is also located close to a metro station, Abu Bakr, which is handy for gettinga round town if you do not plan on driving the whole time.

      • Value for money 6.84
      • 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 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.

      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.

      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...

      • 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.

      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.

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!

A real haven of peace and quiet with a smart lodge atmopshere, this hotel is ideal to get away from it all.

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.
