... the history of the city. Dubai began as a fishing community in its current location because of the creek that provided a natural harbour, which was our second stop on the tour. Here we saw many of the old transport boats that are still used today. We took a short abra ride (water taxi) we walked through the gold and spice souks (markets). Here there are more than 400 gold shops all on one street. Our tour guide informed us ...
... passport and Katie on my ticket. Jo did some smooth talking to the check in girl while I was fighting an overwhelming urge to vomit.
After checking with her supervisor it was decided that as they had let me out of Australia on july 17th they probably should let me back in on August 25th
The next hurdle wasn't one at all, she just asked how many bags I had , weighed them and sent them on their way no problems. Huge sigh of relief and a lesson learned. Always go ...
... So another 7/8 hour flight is next. Got a frozen yoghurt to ease the thought of that - but turns out is worked out to cost £6/7 or so... Eek! Hoping I pass out on this flight cause I'm feeling pretty sleep deprived - didn't sleep that last flight at all really! Running on adrenaline! UPDATE: Ooh oh oh just got one of the cool lounger style seats in the airport! YEO! That's all the excitement for now, laters folks!x Ps. Missing certain people already... No prizes for ...
... these cars doing the same thing.Lucky I am able to swap seats to the front an I start to feel a bit better. Finally we reach the dinner camp. Camel rides if we want. The camp site depicted a Bedowins camp with rows of tables and cushions on the floor to sit on. Dinner was nice then a display of Belly Dancing which was first class. Then finally the trip back to hotel all in all a great day and straight to bed as we have an early start in the morning. End of day ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Al Bustan Rotana - Dubai
A First Class Hotel
Me and my wife have recently returned from the Al Bustan Rotana Hotel. We have travelled all over the world, and found that this hotel is up there with the best. The service is excellent, all the staff are very accomodating and will bend over backwards to make sure that you have an excellent stay.
I have stayed at the 7 star Burj Al Jarab and found that this hotel is equivilent to the standard of the hotel if not better.
The food is excellent and is very reasonably priced. My wife is already looking to book for the new year and next summer.
Would recommend this hotel to any one.
have stayed here twice now and cannot fault this amazing hotel, staff are extremely friendly, do everything with a smile. Food in the many restaurants is excellent, the Italian, japanese and thai retsaurants are outstanding. Faultless.
This is luxary
I have stayed at this hotel 8 times and it is very relaxing, beautiful and you do not have to do anything except relax. Room service is great and reasonably priced. There are great restraunts, nightclubs and lounges inside as well as many more within walking distance. You will never know that you are only a 5 minute drive to the airport. The hotel staff is very knowledgeable, friendly and will go up and above their responsibilities to help you meet your every need.
This is a fabulous Hotel very close to the airport but not a problem with noise we heard a couple of planes in the 4 days we were there and then only when at the pool. The rooms were not huge but adequate they were the best-equipped rooms we have ever stayed in with daily papers delivered each morning little orchids and funny little messages on the pillow, towelling robes and slippers, internet access, three telephones dotted about, just brilliant. The staffs were so helpful and friendly they could not do enough for you. The Hotel supplies a free shuttle service to Deira City Mall, The Gold Suk and the Beach club. The Taxis are very cheap.
A real pleasant hotel
I slept in this hotel for 4 nights for a business trip. the hotel is a really nice place to stay. the room i stayed in was big, well arranged and tidy all the time. The gym and swimming pool was the place to go after a long day of work. The oxygene pub is not to miss, they get really good DJ, ask for the night schedule of pub, free entrance to hotel residents.
Restaurants are also pretty nice and buffets are marevelous specially for sea food buffet.
It is not a cheap hotel for personal trip but if you want to have some luxury time with 5 stars + service, consider this hotel.
A jem of a hotel
Will keep this review short, nothing bad to say, or could be said about this 5 star oasis of luxury.
From the 1st to the last second of your stay, everything will amaze you. The lobby/atrium, the rooms, the restaurants and the fantastic staff. nothing is too much trouble.
It may be just a few minutes from the airport, but you would never quess, noise! what noise.
Slight downside, it is away from the hustle of the city centre. But there is a free bus to the centre, and the taxis are cheap, clean and very very safe. As is all of Dubai.
p.s. visit the Irish Village near the tennis courts, about a five minute walk from the hotel. For a pint of the good stuff, and a chance to catch up on the football/rugby.
We stayed at this hotel in February 2005 because we were there for the Dubai Tennis Championships and it was the official tournament hotel. It was really a superb hotel. Right from when we drove up I thought how lovely it was. The lobby was amazing and the rooms were very comfortable. We had one on the 3rd floor with a view of the airport (the hotel is very very close to the airport). One thing we did notice was that the room could be a bit cold, however we were out the whole day and the bed blankets were nice and warm at night.
Brilliant hotel! we have just returned from a 5 day holiday here and wish it had been longer. We just had a normal room which was still lovely and we had the bed turned down for us each evening and orchids on the pillows. Food was magnifect and not expensive for a 5 star hotel. They do a lot of promotions and we spent from £10 - £22 per head per night depending on which of the 7 restaurants we chose. Nice pool. Very friendly and helpful staff. Wonderful open foyer and a piano player each evening. shuttle bus to the souks, city centre mall and the beach. We would certainly go back and will recommend it to all our friends.
Excellent Value for Money
We stayed here in October 2004 and despite it being Ramadan the Hotel was first class. Excellent rooms very clean and the breakfast was so vast you couldnt do it justice. Situated near the airport but you would never have known. Taxi service from the Hotel was superb and reasonable.
We stayed here for 2 nights in October 2004; this hotel was first class. The service, rooms and facillties were excellent so if you want to be pampered stay here. They anticipate your every need and bring fresh fruit to you individually around the pool. The shuttle bus runs regular trips to the City Centre mall which takes about 5-10 mins and about 20-30 mins for the Gold Souks. They have an enormous selection for breakfast including a chef who will cook whatever you desire. The hotel has a stunning interior including water features. The rooms were very spacious even so that our children sharing a room had a queen size bed each. Would definately stay here again and would highly recommended it.
