Considering that the majority of guests will spend the majority of their time fast asleep, this is a surprisingly well-serviced hotel. The hotel is located within Terminal 1 and is used almost exclusively by transferring passengers. The levels of enjoyment depend on the length of stopover and the amount of time permitted away from the airport. Rooms are efficient, clean and sound-proofed – everything you would want from an airport hotel. A business lounge and gym are well-equipped so there is no reason not to get out of the room for a bit of an explore before catching the next flight out of town.
The essentials • 14 restaurants and bars are attached to the hotel, meaning whatever time of day you are staying, there is a chance for snacks and refreshment.
• Guests desperate to expand shopping opportunities beyond duty free are a taxi dash away from Deira City Centre, Dubai Festival City and Mirdiff City Centre shopping malls.
