Our 13 hour flight from NYC was well WORTH IT. After having a little trouble figuring out dollars to dirham for the cab driver we were graciously welcomed to Shangri La by the doorman and the receptionists. We arrived about 2pm and our rooms were ready which I couldn't be happier to be able to rest ...
We were in Dubai in December so the weather was pleasant. The Dubai Mall was a convenient 10-15 minute walk from the hotel, only 1-2 minutes of which was outside. As soon as you enter the metro there is a bridge with a series of automated walkways all the way to the mall. Upon check-in we we're given ...
Nice high end hotel. Very accommodating staff. Just be aware that you pay for what you get and this place is expensive (i.e. add-ons, on-site restaurants, bar, travel/excursions desk). So if you want to be more thrifty (relatively speaking, because let’s face it - Dubai is quite expensive everywhere) ...
To walk you through, I booked this place in a rush, which was the first of many mistakes. The beds were hard the bathrooms were dingy at the edges like an old New York apartment. THE BED!! HORRIBLE. Worst bed I've ever slept on in my entire life. The positive is that it's close to the Dubai mall ...
Clean and nice hotel close to metro. Staff are friendly .Room is small though.
Arriving at the hotel we were really excited as it was a big upgrade from the hotel we stayed the previous night. Everything looked great. The biggest problem of the hotel is that they were very unorganized. We arrived and had two separate rooms booked. The staff said the rooms were not ready although it was almost 4pm and check in started at 3pm! She then said we could "share" a room now and she would later give us the other room and an upgrade. Well almost two hours later my friend got into his room. As we left for the night, he forgot something and had to go back to his room. As he was going down the hall he saw someone else going into his room, then came back out. The staff had double booked his room! Someone else had a card that opened his room. This was a serious problem and we went to the front desk and complained. They finally had to call the manager. Someone screwed up and they tried to say since they upgraded him that room was showing empty, however it was not the upgraded room! After about 30 minutes of being very upset my friend was offered the upgraded room when he would return later that evening! This affected me as well since his bags were in my room and we had to share for a while. This was very annoying and pretty bad. Overall though, the hotel is pretty good and I would probably come back assuming they don't screw it up.
Dusit Thani is by far one of the nicest hotels in Dubai. Great location DIFC close to the malls and major attractions. Superb staff
This hotel was very clean and beautiful, the staff was very knowledgeable and friendly and helpful in every way possible. This is my second time staying in this hotel and they impress me more each time. This hotel is highly recommended. It is also in close proximity to the metro station and a lot of great food places. 10 thumbs up for this really great hotel. Looking forward to going back there next year.
