From the classically-sculpted arcades of the outdoor pool to the high-tech ambience of the hotel's meeting rooms, the Villa Rotana makes for a distinctive Dubai hotel. A mock-antiquarian façade leads to a choice of rooms in shades of muted pastel or vivid red. Cuisine from all over the world is served at the Moka Café, as well as elegant carousels of cakes for afternoon tea. Grab a poolside sandwich after your rooftop swim and admire the imposing Burj Khalifa across the way, or work off all those tempting treats in the on-site gym.

Worry-free stay

I was in Dubai alone, so I wanted to find a safe, centrally located hotel. This was perfect, a very brief taxi (or one metro stop) away from the Burj Khalifa/Dubai Mall area. Very comfortable room/bed, very attentive staff, great breakfast. And how often can you swim in a rooftop pool while staring up at the tallest building in the world? The one issue was that, even though I had upgraded to a king-sized bed on this site, the hotel was fully booked for king-sized beds. But all I did was politely request a refund for the upgrade, and suddenly I was staying in a suite. Would recommend this hotel to anyone!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

The Burj Khalifa's "At the Top" tour was expensive but not all that impressive (they only take you up to the 124th floor, despite the building being over 200 stories). If you're going to do it, buy tickets in advance online -- you pay about $30 instead of $100! However, the Dubai Fountain water show (every half hour from 1800-2300) is free and highly entertaining.

Perfect city stay

We stayed for one month at This hotel and for us it was perfect. Close to the metro and taxis always available. Every member of staff were friendly and efficient, especially Michael in the coffee shop. The buffet breakfast was very good with good choices for all nationalities. The room has a small kitchenette which is useful for a longer stay, and there was plenty of space. There is a small pool on the roof and a jaccuzi and steam rooms, which are segregated for male and female. The whole hotel is of a good standard with a light and airy feel. I hope to stay there again on my next visit.

superb hotel

I arrived at 1230 my check in time was 1400 but they checked me into room straight away . the room was spotless the hotel seemed relatively new hence why everything looked immaculate. the breakfast buffet was good but i have had better from other hotels . the staff were very helpfull always looking to go the extra mile . the location of the hotel was a 3 minute walk from 'BUSINESS BAY' metro stop. there was a laundry , a convenience store and a small restaurant at the back of the hotel. dunkin donuts where free wifi was available was also next to the hotel together with baskin robbins . over all i was there for 3 nights and i was very please . asked for a wake up call on my last night and the call came exactly to the minute i asked . the only downside was the hotel charged for wifi.

Excellent service

Villa Rotana has a great situation just across from the Business Bay metro station. It's well placed for Jumeira Beach and for getting to both Deira and the Marina/Palm. Breakfasts are superb with a great choice. But the best thing about the hotel is its staff - everyone was just so friendly and helpful. Really great value.
