Great hotel!

Would recommend Thu, Jan 15, 2015
Hotel is located in Dubai Media City and it is very close to the public beach (JBR) and other famous places such as Burj Al Arab. Hotel Media One is very modern and designed hotel with a great amenities, and the best one is The Dek on Eight, lounge/bar and club on the eight floor, where you can relax by the pool or party at night.

A contradictory experience

Would recommend Tue, Feb 19, 2013
My wife and I are both retired and chose Media 1 as it was a few minutes walk from my son's family apartment at the Marina. The hotel was generally very good but there was an obsession with music everywhere, sometimes very loud ! We were clearly much older than the general clientele - but why does one want loud music by the swimming pool? One night there was a disco that went on to 2am and rattled our bedroom window. The manager moved us to another room at 11.30 pm. We would probably recommend hotel to younger friends but not oldies !

Nightlife hint

If you want quiet, then the sea view rooms at the front should be selected.

Always a Favorite

Would recommend Sat, Jul 7, 2012
Everytime I stop in Dubai, I always come to the Media One. I prebook days before or get on my laptop at the airport and quickly make my reservation. The Hotel has everything I need and the location is good enough to easily reach major venues. Check it out, you will not be disappointed.

I always enjoy my stay at the Media One Hotel in Dubai!

Would recommend Wed, Sep 21, 2011
I always enjoy my stay at the Media One Hotel in Dubai. I have been coming to this hotel for a long time now. Every time I fly into Dubai I make the Media One my first destination. The hotel has wonderfully stylish and modern room, with chic furniture and an iPod dock, which I am always in search of, and free wifi. The cafes downstairs have great foods and drink and the rooftop pool has great bar for the night with music. The breakfast is amazing and I always see the promotion for other meals offered at the 18th floor restaurant, but have not yet been to them. Hopefully someday soon!


All of the sites in Dubai are short drive away. The Palm, Emirates Mall, Dubai Mall, Burj al Arab and Burj Khalifa are a short drive.

Cool Hotel located in a Central Area

Would recommend Thu, Jul 28, 2011
I enjoyed my three day stay at Media One. The room was perfect with a great view of the beach; the atmosphere was perfect. My only negative was the internet wasn't free. The staff was super professional and very helpful. I will definitely stay at Media One when I return to Dubai.

For shopping and dining, the hotel staff can give you excellent recommendations. With regards to distance, cost and time.

This hotel is an excellent choice. I enjoyed the great decor and services at the hotel. Also, the Brunch, Pool Party and Cafe are a must visit.


Your close the the Emirates Mall with a short taxi ride. At the Mall you can do excellent shopping and ski or snowboard in the same day. The Palm is nearby and Barsti Beach Club at the Le Meridien is excellent for a good night of dancing.

Good Value and Interesting Design

Would recommend Fri, Apr 16, 2010
I came for a concert at the Palm-Atlantis so it was a great location. The cab had to drop me off across the street though because of the way that the front drive is situated and the fact that the streets are monitored for no u-turns on some sides. Friendly, responsive staff, clean room. Price was totally right and, although I don't like a lot of attempts at modern design, I loved the glass/clear-wall design and the whole feel of the place for my purposes. Not really romantic per se but great for a single person or a couple wanting to have a nice clean stay and get around the marina area.

Entertainment hint

GO to the chillout festival next spring at Atlantis--it's really a cool experience.

Good and Comfortable Hotel

Would recommend Tue, Apr 13, 2010
I consider it not bad. That was due to front desk which was not helpful and considering my age (over 60 years) when she host us in a room on the 13th. floor that was noisy but following my complained they host us in room on the 19th. floor and that was much better. I have recorded that to the management before my departure.
