... the bus station in Dar, we were besieged with taxi drivers wanting to take us anywhere, and as we couldn’t see any dalla-dallas, decided for safety’s sake to splash out on a taxi ten kms into the city. Stayed in the same "flash" accommodation as before, and couldn’t wait to depart next morning to catch the fast ferry to Zanzibar.

The women's salons were much more glammed up though. Restaurants are usually Indian or Chinese or a fusion. I had hoped to find a restaurant for dinner tonight that served local food. The hotel restaurant is Italian. There are one or two dishes that pay homage to a form of local cuisine so I might choose that. Mosques appear to ...

Yep, very slippery when wet. Like riding on ice. Add to that the Arabic driving and it equals to accidents. Two at the corner I'm facing in an hour. I'm having an easy day.

Historical Traveler Reviews Coral Deira Dubai
Well worth the money
We stayed here for 1 night on our way to spend Christmas in Australia. It was very handy for the airport - the taxi cost about £2.50. This is a dry hotel, but the lack of alcohol was not a problem for us. The staff were very courteous and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was ok - a good choice was available. We had room service at 1am and it was fantastic. The roof top pool looked very inviting but we did not have time to sample it. I would recommend staying at this hotel.
Not bad but be careful
I have spend a week there during the Air Show: The Exec Suite 102 is actually two normal rooms with one changed to a living room. The requested airport pick-up did not work and a non-smoking room was also not reserved. A BIG problem are the parties which might last till after 3 a.m. and steel the night sleep in the lower floors. Be aware of no ALCOHOL served in the restaurants, use the Holiday Inn or JW Marriott for that instead.
Clearly not a 5 star but a good 4 Star for those having no problem with the above.
Not 5 star. 3 at most
I was happy to find a hotel in Dubai during Big 5 after a long search. I stayed at the Coral Deira for 3 nights this week. Overall, it was not a very good experience. Even though, it was included in the package, they did not come to pick me up from the airport. There was no non smoking room available as I have reserved for. And the room I stayed was not a Club Select room but a standard room. And yet, I was still charged the club select room rate.
Plus overall, the hotel really does not qualify for a 5 star as the other 5 star hotels in the town are perfect in every way. I would not recommend this hotel, unless there are no 5,4 or 3 stars hotel vacancies left remaining in Dubai.
Soft People,Safe Environment and Very well located
Stayed single and didn,t feel I was alone. A nice very well located hotel, staff is polite and very resposive.Indian food was excellent served in the newly established restaurant.Very well managed. Breakfast was balanced and nice you could find everything.
Very nice hotel, but not 5 star
Just spent four nights at Coral Diera and was very pleased with this newer hotel. The staff was very professional. The rooms very clean and comfortable. Location is very central and convinient to the City Center Mall. It is a good value hotel but it is not 5 star as the sign outside claims. Completely adequate but nothing spectacular.
It's always a worry going somewhere new and not knowing whether the right choices had been made. In this case the fears were unfounded. The hotel was great. Was happy with the location - had a room that was quiet. I thought standards were very high here - spotlessly clean, extremely helpful and courteous staff. Found the breakfasts to be substantial - plenty of choice - and was not bothered about feeling peckish throughout the day as a consequence of 'filling up' at breakfast time so could get on with sightseeing etc. There was a shopping mall close to the hotel - Reef Mall - with a good selection of shops. About a 5 minute walk. Not huge like some of the other malls, but worth a visit all the same. A Marks and Spencer shop close to the mall along with various other shops. Night time is best time to go - place comes alive then. Also a well stocked convenience store next to the mall for emergencies (and non-emergencies too of course). Hotel runs a courtesy van to City Centre Mall in evenings. Worth a trip. All in all, would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. I would stay there again without hesitation.
Coral 'The Best'
Coral Deira is an exceptional hotel, I recommend to all who wish to visit Dubai. It is situated in a great location. All the staff are extremely efficient, friendly & approachable! (specially the Night shift manager, very PROFESSIONAL & COURTEOUS & always a delight to 'check out' ;-) on this note, 'Check in'!!!
All the facilities meet upto their standard & the rooms are, exceedingly clean & spacious. HIGHLY!! HIGHLY!!!HIGHLY!!!! RECOMMENDED
Very good hotel
Have just got back from 6 nights at the Coral Deira and think it's fab. Went along to Jumeriah beach a couple of times and it's like a war zone! So much building work going on! How are they going to fill all these places? Coral Deira is very clean, with good sized rooms and very comfortable beds! Breakfast is ok, not fab but lots of choice and plenty of it, and it's too hot to eat anyways! Staff were very helpful and am glad I chose a city centre hotel over one on the beach as don't think I could have coped being holed up amongst all the building work going on!
A jewel in the Heart of the city..........
I recommend this jewel of a hotel in the heart of the city. The rooms were excellent and the staff were very friendly and attentive. The valet service was very very good and most city attractions were close at hand.
