Al Manzil Hotel
Travel Blogs from Dubai
A great place to have a stopover. Weather very hot at this time of year, but not far between air conditioning. The morning and early afternoon was spent dong a City of Merchants tour, seeing the new Dubai and the Old Dubai areas. 7 star hotel with gold plated everything to a Mosque and short trip on local water taxi over to gold and spice markets. …
After a long but good flight we arrived at 6:30 in morning to 31degrees wow. Is now around 42degrees. A great view of city from room. You have to see Dubai to believe it, all seems a little unreal. Had a couple of swims in pool at hotel and a look around the Dubai central city and Mall. Off to a old city tour n morning and then a hop on hop off bus …
I was wide awake again at 5:00 a.m. so I watched the sun come up while I had some tea on my balcony. The view from my hotel room really never gets old. (As I mentioned before, I think I should just live in this room.)
After breakfast I grabbed a cab and went to the Sheikh Mohammad Center for Cultural Understanding to do a walking tour of …
I have been on some long flights in my travels, but the flight from Seattle to Dubai not only gives a new meaning to the word long, but I lost one complete day (which really mixed me up in how I was supposed to take my kidney meds... but that is another story). By the time I got through immigration and got to my hotel (the Al Manzil across from the …
Emirates flight from Cairo to Dubai was so smooth and comfortable compared to Egypt Air or the coach bus. Arrived about 1am two days ago and leave tonight at 2:40am, so it is not really a full 3 night stay. Hotel is comfortable & close to the Dubai Mall - the largest in the world. It is also in the same district as Burj Dubai - the tallest …

Historical Traveler Reviews Al Manzil Hotel Dubai
I was a single woman traveler on an overnight weekend stay at the hotel. I took advantage of a 450 dirham discount rate offered on the hotel's website. The comments of the other reviewers about the hotel being isolated in the middle of a construction zone are true! One big disadvantage is that few local taxis are in the area, which may mean you have to rely on the more expensive private taxi service provided by the hotel to go anywhere other than the shopping malls, for which the hotel provides free periodic shuttle service.
Great little hotel
Great rooms even if the open plan w/ bathroom take a while to get used to. Pool wonderful, fantastic food and genuine enthusiasm from staff all make this hotel stand out from the pack. Granted it is located away from the beach and is surrounded by quite a bit of construction. Regardless this place is a gem. Spent a week on business and its proximity to the DIFC was very useful.
Precioso hotel con encanto convistas a la torre de Dubay
Un hotel nuevo precioso... El primero en abrir en la zona vieja donde están construyendo el edificio más alto del mundo. El hotel tiene un toque íntimo al estilo de un hotel con encanto. Las habitaciones son modernas y con decoración árabe, el cuarto de baño es de estilo abierto y tiene una bañera estupenda. El restaurante-bar deportivo era novedoso por servir comida de Australia y Nueva Zelanda. Recomendado para unas vacaciones para ir de compras o para un viaje de negocios por su ubicación en el centro de la ciudad.
We have just returned from dubai and stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. We were picked up at the airport by two smartly dressed and rather friendly staff offering cold towels and drinks once we entered the 4x4. I have to admit that there was a charge for the pick up at 100 dhs which we later realised wasnt cheap. This can be arranged cheaper at approx 70dhs or less by shopping around. The hotel was a pleasant 20 minute drive from the airport which soon passed chatting to the friendly and curteous staff. We soon discovered that all the staff take professionalism and curtesy to a new level ! From the moment we arrived at the hotel we were welcomed by Pushpa the training manager - this lady is worth her weight in gold. From hereon we were in luxurious surroundings with amazing service and facilities. We honestly felt like the hotel was more of a 5* and everything is brand new and certainly has a wow factor. There is a good size pool again with service to the max with an adjoining high tech gym. We particulary enjoyed a meal at the hotel buffet restaurant which had an incredible and extensive selection of the highest quality food which was very reasonably priced and unmissable. Breakfast was again of a 5* standard and quite honestly there was too much choice! The room was beautiful and chic modern with appliances of the highest quality. lcd tv etc. It was noted how long and thorough the cleaning staff were in the rooms and believe me these people care. As with most things in life its not perfect as its set in a developing area however you will find that in dubai wherever you go. Getting around is very easy and taxi's are cheap and obtained by the hotel staff before you even need to ask. We used the hotel limo service namely shaheed who was first class, from there we used him everytime. We would have no hesitation in going back to this hotel as we stayed a further two nights at the 5* taj palace hotel and it was not in the same league as the al manzil. We travel extensively and we have never experienced the level of friendly service and personal touches as we have here. We were sad to leave and have recommended it to all our friends and relatives since. fats & als
Unfortunately only stayed there at the end of our trip incidentally for two wonderful nights. Stayed in GH at the beginning went to Musandam, Al Ain and Fujajrah and wanted something at a reasonalble price. After searching the internet the day before arrival we thought the hotel looks nice and the price of EUR 100,- per person seemed to be ok. We booked through the phone directly the day of arrival, the hotel belongs to the southern sun group and they have two new hotels in Burj Dubai were they currently built the tallest building in the world. This whole area is an impressive construction site like the whole city is.
Ich wohnte in diesem Hotel und muss sagen, dass ich von dem ganzen Erlebnis sehr beeindruckt war. Ich hatte noch ein paar Tage an eine Geschäftsreise herangehängt und bin in der Gegend von Bur Dubai gewesen. Obwohl es mitten in einer Baustelle liegt, hatte ich einen ganz beeindruckenden Ausblick auf das gigantische Burj Dubai Gebäude von meinem Zimmer aus (siehe Fotos).
I stayed in this hotel and must say I was very impressed with the whole experience. I was tagging a couple of days onto a business trip and had been staying in the Bur Dubai area. Although it is situated in the middle of a building site, I had quite an intriguing view from my room (see photos) of the massive Burj Dubai building. The room was totally unique in it's set up with an open plan style bathroom, big flat screen tv and very comfy bed. I was staying there on my own so sometimes it can be quite intimidating dining alone but I chose the Nezeaussie sports bar for dinner, the food was excellent and they even offered to prepare something different to the menu as I'm vegetarian, it's not often you get that. Equally impressed with the breakfast offering; fresh juices, soya milk for cereal, waffles, yoghurt...etc..etc. I also used the gym facilties which were good. I spend a few hours by the pool and Rohan the lifeguard couldn't really do enough, moving the umbrella for me, fresh towels, etc etc.
Ich wohnte im Al Manzil Hotel bevor ich in mein Appartment im Burj Dubai Komplex einzog. Es war noch nicht richtig bekannt gemacht in Dubai, also wusste ich nicht, was ich zu erwarten hatte, aber ich war beeindruckt!
I stayed in the Al Manzil hotel before moving into my apartment in the Burj Dubai development. It wasn't really publicised in Dubai so I didn't know what to expect but I was very impressed! The rooms are on par with the superior 5* hotels in Dubai, perfect for both luxury holidays and business travel. The only problem is the surrounding development, if you are on business this will not effect you but for a holiday you may not want to be surrounded by cranes etc! The building site however is an impressive one, there are already tour busses coming inside the development to view the tallest tower in the world being built next to the equally imprssive Dubai Mall(also biggest in world). Once you are inside the Old Town/Al Manzil the construction hardly effects you. There is a delightful courtyard serving excellent food and shisha and a live band on every night outside the hotel. For me the best thing is the sports bar, it's by far the best in Dubai. It's taken a rugby theme and is a mix between Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. It serves beer from all of these countries and the food is 1st class!!!!!
Beautiful Boutique hotel over looking the burj Dubai
Beautiful new hotel... the first to open in the Old Town where the tallest building in the world is under construction. Hotel had a nice intimate boutique feel about it. Rooms were modern arabic decor with open style bathroom and great bathtub. The Sports Bar restaurant was novel serving food from Australia and New Zealand. Recommended for a shopping holiday and a business trip due to its central city location.
