Historical Traveler Reviews Fairmont Dubai
Service with a smile !
My husband & I spent 4 glorious nights at The Fairmont at the end of February 2005.Originally we wanted to be beach located,but boy are we glad we didn't choose to stay at one of the more famous beach hotels.We did visit for the day,& both agreed the staff & ambiance of The Fairmont were far superior.I can strongly recommend Pronto's Deli,where we were often to be found late afternoon sampling the wonderful cakes.The mouthwatering fruit & yogurt smoothies round the pool & the gastronomical delights of the Italian restaurant.Oh, by the way we did do other normal tourist things like sightseeing etc etc.Will definately go back there & will recommend to anyone who will listen !!!
P.S A big thankyou to Sky who made our first mornings breakfast a delight,with her smile & useful tips on where to go & what to see,free maps included.
Very very good!!
We stayed a whole week in the Fairmont and I need to say that this Hotel and service quality plays in a different league. Because without kids, for us it was the perfect combination between beach and city. Beach is very good arranged with the partner Hotel Le Meridien Mina al, shuttle service at 11.00am(by taxi EUR 8, takes 15 minutes), prices by Le Meridien for a top 5 star hotel very fair. Prices within the Fairmont for the different restaurant also very fair (ERU 35-50, 2 persons, non alcohol). Breakfast in the Fairmont is just excellent(exotic fruits inclusive)
City it is important to go by Taxi to the Bur area(and NOT to Deira).
Nice to take the boat from here which costs almost nothing to Deira area.
We liked Dubai very much and will come back for sure. When you stay with kids, a beach hotel is adviceable (Le Meridien is cool, even a LOT construction behind the hotel and in fact to whole beach, without kids the Fairmont is perfect.
I just wondered that all the construction work and expected growth of people living in dubai that no additional streets/highways are build. Traffic to the beach area in the morning gives a lot of trouble,same at 6-9pm back to the city, for the tourist who trys to escape in his vacation of these kind of thinks not nice and a little stress factor.
Two of us stayed for a week in February and it was fantastic. Staff were friendly and helpful and the quality of furnishings, rooms and room service was great. I was a bit worried about noise from the nightclub (a problem when we stayed previously at the Sheraton Deira), but this proved to be unfounded at the Fairmont as the standard hotel rooms are on floors 21 - 30 and the club is in the basement. This is predominantly a business hotel so not many holidaymakers about. The interior is stunning and contemporary and the internal glass lifts are a real experience - especially if you suffer from vertigo!.
We were on a budget so didn't eat evening meals at the hotel as they were expensive. Fast food addicts can find a Mcdonalds and KFC 10 mins walk away and there is a supermarket to pick up cheap snacks across the Sheikh Zayed Road - 10 mins. Other hotels and local restaurants in Satwa are easily reached by the ever present taxis from the front door.
Pricey, but recommended for a luxury break. Best hotel I have experienced
Best City Hotel By Far!
Well, what can I say?! Having stayed in alot of hotels in Dubai, the Fairmont has got to be best city hotel by far! Although it is expensive, it is worth every penny. Staff provide excellent sevice (which us Brits love!), rooms are stunning, I had the pleasure of being upgraded to a 2 bed suite and it was out of this world...with fab views over looking the city, the size & facilites are fsimply the best!
I would stay here again (i will be in Aug!)
stayed for 10 days with wife and 2 children in October 2004. fantastic hotel convieniently located for old town and all shopping facilities. were upgraded to a one-bedroom suite: we all loved it. staff most friendly and could not do enough to help. food fabulous although pricey. hotel arranged daily free shuttle to take people to beach 20 minutes away. very comortable highley recommended FIVE star plus hotel.
This is truely a fabulous hotel and certainly deserves the 5* it has been awarded.
The check in is speedy, the room was beautiful with a magnificant view accross the city. The bathroom is fully equippd with soap, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, mouthwash, flannels, loofah, hairdryer and many, many towels.
It is a great location and whilst I reccommend the Cafe Pronto for breakfast on the ground floor, the pizza place on 9th floor for lunch and Spectrum on One for dinner, you must go along Shaeik Zayed Road (turn right) and go to a great Lebonese place called Byblos and a lovely cafe called Boccodilla. There are many other wonderful eateries along the road, stand alone and within hotels. Also have to visit the souks for gold, silver, platinum, textiles (pashminas!), food and spices - just the atmosphere is worth going to be in!
The Fairmont Dubai also offer daily (not Friday) trips to the beach hotels such as the Oasis, Sheraton and Le Meridien for free, giving you the best of both world with a city based hotel and a beach trip every day!
There are 2 pools in the hotel on the 9th floor as part of the Spa, a sunrise and sunset pool, aptly named! You can swim from 6am - 12 midnight and I highly recommend an evening swim - very tranquil!
We were there during Ramadan and unfortunately also when President Shaeik Zayed passed away, so there was a peaceful atmosphere and no drinking throughout. There is a nightclub on the ground floor called Tangerine, which looks posh, but I cannot gague the noise levels, however, all rooms start on about the 9th ish floor, so a peaceful night's sleep assured.
As it is a prodomenantly Muslim country, it is advisable to cover up respectfully but no need to go OTT.
We would most definately go back and after seeing Fairmont Banff Springs and Fairmont Dubai, I would also reccommend the entire hotel chain!
From the moment the taxi pulled up I was 'wowed'. This is one amazing hotel, I could find no fault with anything! The staff are fantastic, the food is outstanding and the atmosphere one of pure indulgence! My only complaint is that I couldn't stay any longer than 4 days!
Apart from the hic up of the travel company not processing our booking - which took 5 minutes to sort out - everything was perfection itself.
I have stayed in many hotels,all over the world. but The Fairmont wins hands down !
Very slick and glossy, even by Dubai's high standards. Good location on Sheikh Zayed Road, more or less opposite the exhibition centre, a stroll to Satwa's local restaurants and only a 10/15 minute taxi ride from the Creek.
Excellent staff; friendly smiles right through the property (though we felt that the obsessive attention we had at breakfast each day from one of the hostesses had more to do with the "employee of the month" competition than an innate, overdev eloped sense of hospitality).
The visitor to Dubai is spoilt for hotel choice, but the Fairmont is right up there.
Fantastic Futuristic hotel!
We stayed at the Fairmont in June 2004 and apart from the initial mixup about our reservation not being confirmed (which resulted in a 4 hour wait)the rest of the stay was excellent. We had a one bedroomed suite which was exceptional and very modern with marble floors and 2 bathrooms.
We also visited the Willow Stream Spa which again was excellent, very luxiourous and free to those who have a Gold room, otherwise for access you're paying about £10 for the facilities for a day.
The service was excellent and the concierge was brilliant. Well reccomended! Good location too, in between the beach and the souks.
Stayed there for Arabian Travel Market and it was great. Spacious rooms, great location (accross the exhibition center). They have Wi-Fi available in the public areas and seemed to be free of charge.
Have 2 pools which are really great.
The restaurant is dark and that would be my only negative point.
Service is excellent and lots of european hotels should learn from them...
