Premises are stunning but not well maintained. Room is very comfortable and services superb.
The Melia hotel is a nice, updated hotel in a pretty good location with plenty of stores & restaurants within walking distance. Our room was spacious with a comfortable bed. The staff was fantastic, everyone we dealt with was friendly and helpful during our entire stay. The rooftop pool is a bit small, but has a great city view and plenty of lounging space. We didn't eat at the hotel so can't comment on food, but there are several restaurants onsite. A few things that could be improved. The internet in our room was slow all the time and the front desk had no real solutions. The TV in the rooms are inside the mirror and very difficult to watch. We didn't spend much time in the room watching TV so it wasn't a big deal, but is a really strange set-up. The hotel shuttle from the airport was overpriced.....more than double the price of a taxi. With the ease of taking taxis in Dubai, this seems extreme. Overall a great hotel!
I had a very good experience in the hotel Melia, Dubai. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Service was great and the hotel was very clean. The Buffett breakfast was well worth the money and they had a wide variety of stuff to choose from. I would most definitely stay there again. I was impressed.
The experience was great overall except there is a night club on the first floor. We had a room on the 2nd floor and we could hear the music until 3am.
I was welcomed in my room with a macaroon, a chocolate an a chocolate covered strawberry. the bed was big and the bathroom lovely. the room was surprisingly large as well. the location seemed slightly out of the way but it was 20 minutes from the airport. the staff were eager and fantastic. will definitly consider staying here - and taking advantage of the spa and rooftop bar, next time.
This hotel was simply amazing, it was sooooo much for an awesome price.
great experience, will definitely plan to stay at the same hotel next time!
I love this hotel but the amount of rules a paying customer has to adhere to is a bit much. Coming to Dubai to visit friends, I was not "allowed" to bring my friends to my room which was very frustrating.
I've stayed in a number of Melia Hotels worldwide. The rooms and the restaurants were absolutely up to Melia standards. The only drawback for me was the location. You not far from the airport, but rather far from the city center. The drive to the city is riddled with traffic lights and lots of them. Rooms were superb. I stayed on the top level. There's a rooftop pool.
I had one of the most saprise in my life. When I entered my room, I found my name displaying on the television, being welcomed to the hotel
Nice, good hotel, nice people and good facilities, is central
This hotel does a lot of things well. The highlight is certainly a fantastic rooftop pool with amazing views of downtown Dubai. The lobby is stylish, and the room amenities are generally of fine quality. Internet was fast and easy to connect. The price is fair. And I experienced a welcoming, friendly staff. Unfortunately, though, this hotel cannot decide what it wants to be. The hotel is more of an art gallery and nightclub than a hotel. In fact, I think the hotel has four nightclubs, and even the pool deck doubles as a nightclub (with blaring techno music at 8:00 pm, this all but ruined what would otherwise have been a pleasant pool visit). The rooms, too, are so over the top as to become non-functional. The TV, stupidly located behind a mirror, can barely be seen during daylight hours, and you have to point the remote directly at the mirror to change channels or adjust volume. The hotel has no walk-in entrance - it's designed only for visitors driving in and out. This is a major annoyance for someone like me, who relishes the experience of walking. The hotel is about 15-minutes (walking) from the Dubai Heritage museums, Old Souk, and Dubai Creek - and about a 15-minute walk from the metro - so location is average. Overall, this hotel felt more like a chic nightclub than a hotel, trying too hard to be "cool" and with more style than substance. Definitely quality amenities and good value, but not my scene.
Nice hotel but no good staff and bad location. Very hare to get a taxi have to use private taxi and they over charge.
It was great and comfortable thanks a lot for that fabulous place
An amazing hotel with an amazing staff that goes beyond to be there for its guests. Impeccable restaurants. The Indian rest is an experience. Although some find the location not good, remember that Taxis in Dubai are really cheap.
Just two words "Simply Splendid". (Sometimes, everything just gels into place to create something beautiful, and that is MELIA DUBAI. If there's one criticism, it would be its location in apparently the middle of no other dining, shopping option).
