Raffles Dubai



This luxury hotel is located centrally in Oud Metha, which isn’t either the most fanciful or most exciting location in Dubai, however it’s really well connected and is perfect for guests who prefer a little quiet and solitude. In the vicinity, you can head over to the Sheikh Zayed Road malls, and you’re also well within walking distance of the Financial District of Dubai. Creekside Park is an attraction which is close to the hotel, and it is also well connected to the airport which is just 15 minutes away. The hotel has an Egyptian inspiration and is shaped like the pyramids. As such it’s not particularly original and surely won’t appeal to popular interests, however the interiors more than make up for the drab exterior by being ornate, intricate, and extravagant with ottoman-style sofas and other furnishings that will take you back to ancient Egypt. The rooms aren’t as heavy on the theme and all guests are offered a 24/7 butler service. One of their most contemporary-looking rooms is the Penthouse Suite which features some pleasing Oriental accents. Furthermore, the hotel features a lot of handcrafted details, such as the mashrabiya technique used on the doors and shutters of bathrooms. In addition to this, all the rooms are extremely spacious with their own private terraces. The smallest room here is still 70sqm. The staff of the hotel is outstanding, they’re clear, efficient, and extremely discreet.
