Great Potential

The Hotel was offered at a great price because it is newly opened and has a few finishing touches to be made particularly in the outside areas. What was good. Excellent staff, Nice rooms with good styling, Nice Facilities, Great price What was bad: Roads around the area are chaotic due to the development, It is impossible to walk anywhere, Hot water was very slow to get hot and took up to 15 minutes of leaving the tap running, Steam Room burnt my legs and needs to be fixed. Overall i would definitely recommend this hotel. I am sure if they are listening they can sort out the couple of issues i mentioned.

Good value, but not yet five-star hotel

As a corporate traveler, I regularly log over 200+ hotel nights a year, and have been fortunate to stay at some of the finest hotels in the world. My recent stay at the Bonnington did not meet my expectations for level of hotel service, but offers decent value for a short-term stay. This hotel is NOT recommended for families on vacation, romantic weekend, or any guests looking for a polished five-star hotel upon which Dubai builds its famous reputation. To be fair, the Bonnington is in the midst of a "soft-launch" while in preparation for their Jan 2009 grand opening. I discovered the Bonnington while doing a price search, and noticed an abnormally low-price for five-star hotel in Dubai. Upon further review of the Bonnington's website, it looked like a great deal! First, the location is pretty decent, but exterior landscaping and appearance is poor. The hotel is located in the Jumeriah Lakes area, with close proximity to the Marina and the "New Dubai" beach resorts, as well as close proximity to the new metro station. However, this area is still under heavy construction, with adjacent buildings in various states of repair. The Bonnington itself is only half-finished, with only floors 1-7 open, and the garage and exterior landscaping still giving the appearance of, well, a construction yard. The interior hotel lobby has not yet been fully opened, and a make-shift side counter was being used as the temporary reception area for hotel guests. Second, the check-in process needs to be improved. At most hotels, check-in is a fairly quick process, perhaps 10min max. The Bonnington kept us waiting for about 20 min+, primarily due to IT difficulties. Because the systems are so new, my reservation was unable to be located, even though I had a confirmation code and confirmed reservation. The front desk seemed to realize this, and gave me a room anyway. An additional inconvenience was that the staff seemed to have problems creating a hotel room key. When I asked for my room key, the attendant apologized, and said it would take a few minutes. I then watched while her colleague seemed to run quickly to a back room, up a flight of stairs, to a back office, create a key, and then return back down the stairs and give the key to guests. This process took about 5-10minutes, all the while I was thinking, " "How strange! Wouldn't it be more efficient to simply keep the key maker on the desk in front of you?" Finally, the hotel service and training needs to be greatly improved. Overall, the staff was professional and courteous enough, but I had the sense that the majority of the staff either started that week, or even that day itself, with little or no training. The singularly worst trait I noticed was the staff's attempts to desparately cover up the lack of internet in the building. Throughout our entire stay, I heard multiple comments that "the network was down", or "internet would be available soon", or "we are working on the problem". Ultimately, the truth was that there was no guest internet available in the hotel, and that the temporary system was so overloaded that the hotel would be unable to offer internet access to its guests. This should have been made clear from the start, rather than waste guests time trying to change their configuration settings. Overall, the hotel is still working through its many issues. I've often used online sources as a reliable resource for hotel reviews, but was surprised to see the vast differences in my own eyes. I can only assume that those other reviews are referring to the residential apartments located in the same building, and not the hotel rooms. It was also interesting to see that the interior finishes are very similiar to one of my favorite hotels, the Dubai Grovesnor House, but ultimately fails as a poor comparison using lesser-grade materials and skimping on corners where it could. Our entire hotel experience at the Bonnington had the sense of a hotel that opened earlier than it should hav...

Bonnington Towers - Dubai

Bonnington Towers is still finishing off the final touches, such as Internet connection, ATM access, bar. The lack of these features contributed to the excellent price.

Excellent brand new hotel

Lovely 4* + hotel/ serviced apts with great facilities and service for the price. Only been open a few months. Close to Marina area (£2 in Taxis). Only downside is difficult to find as so new most taxis don't know where it is exactly and in a building zone so abit of construction noise but most of Dubai has that.
