The Abidos Al Barsha Hotel is one of two prestigious Abidos hotels (the other being Dubailand) located in Dubai. The hotel's tagline is 'simplicity is the new luxury' - evident in it's design, and eye toward providing opulence without excess. Quirky red chairs greet guests in the lobby, a softly lit reception desk creates a warm atmosphere, and staff is on hand 24 hours a day. Head up to the rooftop terrace, or put on your swimwear for a few laps in the pool, with a view. From the convenience of all-day dining to the well-equipped fitness center, steam room and Jacuzzi, the hotel has the amenities covered.

Neighborhood
The Abidos Al Barsha is located in the Al Barsha district, just a short distance from the main beachfront area of Jumeirah. For travelers who prefer cityscapes, architecture, and top-class shopping to sand and seafronts, Al Barsha delivers the Dubai goods while still remaining close enough to the Arabian Gulf for those looking to soak up the Middle Eastern sun. It?s also near the business district, and within easy reach of Dubai's premier shopping center - the Mall of the Emirates?offering department stores such as Debenhams, designer shops like Harvey Nichols, and the entertainment of cutting-edge movie theaters.

Great place to rest after all day shopping

The hotel is right next to the Mall of the emirates. The buildings next to it are not nice to look at, you can see people's clothes drying on the balconies, but the room self has the basics to get a good night's rest after a long day shopping.

Overall, Great Stay

Staff was great and helpful. Our room was similar to the pictures, but was missing the pizazz. Our sofa bed was broken, which caused a little discomfort, but the room was very large and overall nice. Would stay here again if the price was right.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

If looking to go out in the bars, this hotel is far from them and would recommend finding another hotel closer to the marina district.

Great new suites

very pleasant, all glass outside walls, new building. Only complaint is it seemed a bit more exprensive than other hotels, though I think the huge living room and bred room(s) are worth it, and kitchen, if you need the space--I didn't, but if you do, excellent separate tub and super and very comfortable sleek design.

Great Base

Everything fine about this hotel except limited pool/lounger space. The only real problem that we experienced was that the travel agent failed to advise the hotel of our booking and we were kept waiting for over an hour while they located an available room. Although not the hotel's fault they sortred the problem by the following morning and we received a free breakfast and a complimentary basket of fruit.

Great hotel for the price

I stayed at the hotel for 3 days and 4 nights. First of all they don't provide free transportation from and to the airport. If you take a taxi from the airport to the hotel it will be about 90 DHS for a car fitting 5 people including the driver. If you take a van arranged from the hotel to the airport that fits 8 including the driver we payed 150 DHS. We got to the hotel at around 3AM and asked for extra towels and sheets but never got them. Only complaint is room service, they are slow so make sure you bother them A LOT. Other than that, they were great. They washed the dishes, refilled the toiletries in the bathroom and made our beds; cleaning after 6 girls is not an easy task. Amenities: FREE WIFI (only in lobby and roof top), pool is only about 4ft deep, hot tub, sauna (fits about 3 people), SNUG bar doesn't serve drinks Location: 5-10minute walk to Mall of Emirates, 10-20 minute drive Berj Al Arab. 20-30 minute drive to Mall of Dubai and Berj Khalifa. Small little restaurants and a little market just outside hotel Room cleanliness: Very clean and modern hotel apartment and reference to what I said earlier about housekeeping Room comfort: Bed very comfy and TV Staff: Very nice staff but could be slow. There is a travel agent in the lobby that can set up activities to do in Dubai, he's very accommodating and knows his business. He will take your word and try to give you good prices. We saved 10 USD on our desert safari event. One thing that upset me a little was that he said it would be 400 DHS to go to the Berj Khalifa on the same day, which it is, but if you go at 10PM it is only 125 DHS and I payed him 150DHS to go at 10PM. Value: Splitting between 5 people, each person only payed $110 for 4 nights. For everything that the hotel provided (room service, pool, WIFI, kitchen, etc), this was a great deal!

Make sure to get Berj Khalifa tickets ahead of time. If not then go by tickets at 10PM for 125DHS.

Affordable and near popular areas

This was a nice place to stay for our honeymoon. Cab fare is not too expensive to reach Jumeirah Beach or Burj Khalifa, or the other popular areas. There was some construction noise that was very loud since there is not carpeting in the rooms. The great points were that the room had a fridge, microwave and washer/dryer. Great for long stays.

Fantastic Experience

Staff is very friendly and very helpful! Hotel is walking distance far from huge shopping center. Opposite the hotel is corner shop where you can find all food you need. Plenty of Russian food. The rooms are huge and you will find everything you need for living. Great value for money!
