We arrived in Dubai last night after a 2 and a half hours flight from Amman. It had been a dreadful day in Amman, exremely cold and very foggy. We had stayed in our room until checkout and then were picked up and taken to the airport. We spent about 3 hours in the Royal Jordanian Crown Lounge until we boarded at 4pm.
It was a short ride from …
We had a very relaxing flight and arrived early in the morning. Check in at the hotel was at 2pm but we played dumb and they let us check in at 6am for free. Yah for 5 star hotels! The room was perfect and the bed even better. We fell asleep straight away and had a very lazy day in the hotel. Just what the doctor ordered. Late afternoon we went to …
Intriguing and exciting, for me Dubai is a city in a continuing state of evolution and paradox. On arrival I checked into the Radisson Blu Deira Creek - the old city. This is not the shiny, shiny city that we are so used to seeing in tourism promo's, this is much more interesting. The 'Creek' is a broad waterway that runs from the port, inland and …
... I didn't really like the coconut water! I then decided to go up to the rooftop and have a swim but it was quite chilly but the water was nice and warm so I had a little splash around and then headed back to the room and chilled! Then went and had lunch down in Costa then decided to pamper myself before packing and going to sleep ...
... the first night alone. But this morning I woke up shockingly refreshed and really excited to finally be in the country I'll call home for the next few weeks! I am missing home, of course, and missing the constant contact with friends. But I feel ready to take on this adventure without a mound of homesickness spoiling the experience!
Dubai, the little I've seen of it, has been charming although a little on the over indulgent side. I would ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsRadisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Deira Creek
This is a great hotel to either get you started in Dubai or finish off a visit to the city. The hotel is close to the airport which is perfect for those early morning/late night arrivals. In the 'Old Town' the hotel is located directly opposite the Dubai Creek and has the most comfortable beds! The hotel is also located very conveniently to Union station metro station, the waterbus station and to pick up point 10 on the big bus route. Great views of the creek, polite and helpful staff.

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Deira Creek
Construction is finished. now great again
The construction is finished. The hotel is in tip-top shape. Service is the best in Dubai.
We travelled to Dubai for the first time in March this year and choose the Intercontinental largely because we booked late and couldnt get anywhere else.
Being a frequent traveller to the Middle East and Dubai, I found that the Grand Damme of Dubai, The InterContinental has ondergone a complete face lift. The building looks very bright and new, and I had the pleasure of staying in an Standard Club Room, facing the pool and creek. The room was comfertable and new products has been added. Compared from last year, my room had full broad band facilities and multi power adaptors. The wall was covered with fabric but now has classy wall paper and the heavenly bed had a complete new look with the best matress and pillows they can be proud of. The new balconies are in one word, GREAT! All rooms do have private balconies with a round table and 2 chairs. The best view of Dubai can be watched from here. The overall service has been great as always and the restaurant outlets, plenty of them are all friendly with an excellent taste. Try the Kimchi Noodle (without spring onion) in YUM! The beauty of the hotel is that it is always investing in their products to keep up with the market. Very recomendable to all business travellers who wants to experience real traditional Arabian hospitality.
We stayed at the hotel in February 2005. The hotel itself was okay - pretty standard and nothing special in the context of Dubai hotels...
There was construction work going on at the hotel when we stayed. We were advised that our room would be affected but did not expect paint fumes in the room in the middle of the night!!
The hotel moved rooms for us but there was no compensation for our inconvenience.
I have stayed in many Dubai hotels and experienced much better service than here. It's okay if you can get a good deal as it's a good city centre location but don't pay over the odds for bad service and check with the hotel re: construction work!!
We were unaware of the construction at the hotel until after we had booked a non-refundable room. I e-mailed the hotel prior to arrival requesting a room away from the noise but this was not honoured. The front desk told us they had more or less finished on our side of the hotel which was not true. The first morning we got woken by what sounded like someone drilling into our room. The balcony was sealed off so you could not use it and the hotel surrounded by netting so there was no view. There was also the constant smell of paint in the room and by the pool, as well as having to have the curtains drawn all day as there were workmen on the balcony.
Construction going on at hotel !!
Checked into the hotel and heard nothing but banging and sawing all day long. I could not relax in the room or by the pool due to all the NOISE from re-construction. My balcony was closed as it had scaffolding on it. This is no way to run a hotel!!!
I held a conference at the Intercontinental Hotel Dubai Creek for approximately 60 people. The hotel is well located for shopping and is within walking distance (or a short cab ride) of the gold souk, spice souk and other attractions. It is directly across the creek - I would highly recommend hiring one of the "water taxis", particularly in the evening/night to take you to the various sights. They are cheap and good fun.
Just a quick warning to anyone coming here that they are doing renovation work. We booked in September and it was never mentioned to us. According to a note in the room it should have been finished mid December, but it isn't. The balconies are inaccessible as they are locked and there are men taping plastic over the doors and taking concrete off the outside.
I'm pretty annoyed as it's Dubai shopping week and Dubai hotels are full so there is nowhere to move to - I spent the whole morning on the phone with no joy. So much for a relaxing time reading a book on the balcony and watching the world go by. The worst part was that we booked this so that we wouldn't be disturbed by the construction work going on near the beach hotels!
Just returned from our first ever trip to Dubai and are so pleased we chose the Intercontinental.
