Raffles Dubai

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Entire bldg really elegant. Beautiful and functional suite. Very attentive staff. Great on-site restaurants. Only negative is location. It's mid way from old city and the new hotels on the ocean and the mall attached to the hotel is not the "Hot" mall. It was easy to visit the other malls, but if you are looking for a beach experience (we were not), then choose a different hotel. Remember, this hotel is "world class" in every way.

I taught a class for a private company at Raffles Dubai on 18-23 June 2011. Raffles provided a room for training, internet access, laptops for students and instructor, a projector, and lunch catering. There was a brief internet outage the first day, but other than that everything was perfect. I'd definitely use them again for training in Dubai. They handled all aspects of the classroom setup, including the preinstallation of software on each computer. The daily catering was very good - we simply used the hotel's buffet each day for lunch. In addition, the hotel provided snacks in the morning and the afternoon, which were very good. I stayed at the hotel as well, and the guest service was very good. Laundry service is same-day if you turn in your clothes before noon. I didn't eat at the hotel, mostly because there was so much food during the day! The suite, which was the cheapest I could get there, was both inexpensive and very nice - large, nice view, well-kept and well-maintained. I don't know whether I'd stay there if I were in Dubai on other business though, as it's a drive from the downtown area. All in all, I was very satisfied with everything.
