Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates
Travel Blogs from Dubai
Today was our first full day in Dubai and we sure did a lot!
After a nice breakfast buffet at our hotel, we took a taxi out to the Bur Dubai (old city) area to see some of its sites. First, a photo stop at the Dubai Creek. From there we made a quick stop at the Bastakia Quarter, a reconstructed attempt at creating an "old district". It is …
Our 14-hour flight finally ended and we finally arrived in Dubai!
A little background info:
Dubai, a city of 1.7 million people, is the largest city and the commercial center of the United Arab Emirates. It is a regional hub and only about 10% of its people are native Emiratis. The rest are foreign workers and expats who come from …
Hot and dusty
Looking to follow the Thanksgiving Day tradition of getting out for at least a few runs on opening day, I felt the old excitement return as the quad chair scooped us up for the ride to the top and the start of another season. I noticed that the guy sitting next to me was wearing a Colorado Rockies baseball hat. Bob was from Grand Junction and …
... Dubai Creek, the inlet from the sea and one of the keys to the trading that has existed in this area for generations. The abras shuttle back and forth across the Creek from early morning till late at night, carrying mainly South Asian workers commuting between the crowded and congested Deira side with the gold and spice souks, and Bur Dubai with its endless fabric shops in an area known as Meena Bazaar, touristy souk, and many other small businesses.

I stayed at the Kempinski in late September 2006 on the way back from the Maldives for my honeymoon.
Bad Cutomer Service
I had a really bad experience with this hotel. I came all the way from England to meet my grilfriend and when she came to visit me the security didnt let her get in, saying "no visitors are allowed to get in, that is the hotels policy". This is really weired, something not expected from a five star hotel at all. Then I asked for a hard copy of the policy but they didnt provide me with it.
We stayed for a week at the end of August this year and the service and and ambience of the Kempinsky were faultless.
Visited dubai for a birthday treat and had a fab time there.The hotel inside looks amazin and the staff were very helpful and nothin was 2 much trouble.From our balcony we had a beautiful scenic sea view and breakfast in bed as a all new meaning now... absolutely brill.The swim up bar is great and the beach a few footsteps away.Cant wait to go back already plannin nxt visit.
Me and girlfriend arrived at the Mall of the Emirates Hotel on 13th of July after spending 5 nights at the other Kempinski Hotel in the UAE in Ajman, and staying at both hotels I have to say, that one just can't really even compare them to each other.
I just returned from a 4 night stay at this hotel. The hotel is beautifully decorated and the swimming pool is very refreshing! The rooms are quite spacious (standard room) and come with plasma tv with a good selection of English speaking channels. The area outside the hotel is a bit of a construction site but that seems to be everywhere in the city! The hotel is attached to the Mall of the Emirates shopping centre-all i can say is shoppers paradise!! great selection of shops and the ski dome is even better! We did eat at the Sezzam restaurant-didnt think it was great compared to the Blue Elephant (a must) and some other restaurants however nothing to complain about!
My wife and I stayed at the Kempinski for 1 night in mid June to celebrate her birthday. First impressions - wow!
So many hotels are opening in Dubai but the Kempinski is a relay MUST SEE and stay hotel. Well done, the hotel has just recently opened and the location, service, design, standards are EXCELLENT.
My husband and I just returned from a short stay at the Kempinski-Dubai. It is an absolutely wonderful hotel. The hotel, service, staff, rooms and location were all 5-star. The hotel is new and lives up to the Kempinski reputation. We had a beautiful grand deluxe room that was really a small apartment-seprate living room with a sofa bed and a small kitchen, a large bedroom with lots of storage space, and the biggest bathroom I have ever seen in a hotel. (separate tub big enough for two, separate shower and a double sink vanity). But the largest draw to the hotel is its location. It opens onto the Mall of the Emirates. You never need to leave the mall. Everything from movies to shops to restaurants and coffee shops is in the mall and the hotel is attached to the mall. Everything I asked for from the hotel staff was immediately taken care of. The staff was very polite and more than willing to serve. The hotel also has a pool and a spa but these have not opened yet. (opening is set for June 1) However, I am sure these will live up to the standard of the hotel. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone who is going to Dubai whether with children or not. It is an experience not to be missed. I look forward to going back again and again.
