... inch and my bracelet was actually too big so we spent most of the afternoon trying to find the shop we bought it from (we never found it!!) We stopped for a late brunch in their food court at an Ihop diner - a steak sandwich for Beverly and an omelette and onion rings for me, plus all the coffee you can drink - perfect.
The shopping malls in Dubai are ENORMOUS! Even if you're not that into browsing every shop within, they all have added extras to keep ...

We have a 6 p.m. time to go and we are able to walk right in and get on the elevator to the entrance. notice how many different hoops we are going through? At the entrance, we pass a sign that says 30 minute wait from this point. I am so happy that we are walking well past that sign. In fact, we only had to wait about 4 minutes before we are on an elevator. ...

So how have I spent my time so far, well to be honest its involved a big Dubai pastime, partying and brunching, People who live and work here seem to look like they are permanently on holiday, something about the permanent sun might have something to do with it.

The only thing in Dubai that is hotter than the air temp is the ocean temp. You were ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Metropolitan Hotel Dubai
We stayed at this hotel for the New Year 2005/6 and had a fantastic time. On first appearence the lobby is nice, and fairly grand. We were checked in quickly and even though we were early we were allocated the room anyway, which was just as well beacuse we were shattered from our night flight!
All you need for a great holiday
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel - the food was divine, the room clean, the facilities great and the service was excellent. This hotel offers value for money and the staff take pride in attention to detail. Well worth it!
OK, but tired
When there are such great hotels in Dubai, why stay here? Not overly bad, but lost it's sparkle. Also, prostitutes seem to frequent the bars here. Generally run down and not in a good location, being right next to a busy freeway and away from both central Dubai and the beach resorts.
Avoid at all costs
Small, dull rooms. Musty smell. Low ceilings. Average service. Some of the rooms open onto the internal courtyard where one of the restaurants is located. Can somewhat put you off breakfast! There is absolutely no reason to stay here when there are dozens of far better hotels in Dubai. It is right next to Sheikh Zayeed road, and being on only 5 floors, virtually all rooms are guanteed traffic noise. Quite why this hotel has escaped becoming a new construction site (like the rest of Dubai) is beyond me. The staff sometimes try, but there is no getting away from the fact that this is a shockingly bad advert for Dubai in 2005. Was probably good when it opened in the 70's, but there was little choice then! AVOID IT!
Good hotel, lots of restaurants nice pool, all you'd need
The hotel is a good four star property. Rooms were a little mundane but fine. Lots of choice for eating: Thai Fish, Chinese, A la Carte, Italian and Lebanese Restaurants, English Pub, Italian Cafe and a Nightclub!! We tried the pub, the Thai and the Italian Restaurant and they were all excellent.
Staying in July, we were pleased to discover that the pool was chilled - but less pleased to discover how cold it was compared to the 45 degree heat (although it was a good excuse to sit at the poolbar half in & half out of the water)!
The shuttle bus was handy and the drivers were very helpful.
Would recommend this hotel for anyone who doesn't mind not being by the beach (or is okay with the shuttle bus to the Metropolitan Beach Hotel)
I chose this hotel because I was working at Jebli Ali and the situation is very good for town & beach.
Rather "old" Dubai
Whilst the Metropolitan has good facilities (including a well-equipped health centre and a cinema next door), this hotel does nothing for Dubai's growing reputation as a stylish destination. The design is more small-town shopping mall than international hotel. And the rooms are nondescript. Perhaps for the price this is fair enough, but don't reserve a room expecting anything special. Oh and the 24hour coffee-shop cum restaurant serves decidedly sub-standard fare.
Overpriced and needs updating
The hotel is overpriced and needs updating, rooms were tired looking and the hotel smelt a bit musty as you walked in. Hotel rooms in dubai are expensive anyway but you can get better value for money elsewhere and better locations. However the pub was quite nice, with a beer garden, an attraction for european visitors.
Good value hotel
I have stayed at this hotel on 2 occasions and although it is one of the less luxurious in Dubai it nevertheless represents very good value for money.
Not ideally located off the busy main highway, it is however handily placed for both city & beach and the facilities of the sister hotel at Metropolitan Beach resort are available to guests. The hotel runs a free shuttle service to both the beach and the city (each around 15 minutes journey).
The hotel is very clean and comfortable and the staff are friendly & helpful.
There are approx. 10 restaurants at the hotel, together with bars and even it's own multi cinema complex!
All-in-all a great value hotel for the budget-concious traveller. Recommended.
Out of place in Dubai
Nothing majorly wrong with this hotel only that you can do so much better than this in Dubai. The only hotel in Dubai that I have seen that is drab and dated. Even the location is a bit random. If you came a cross this hotel in New York or London you would have done well but in Dubai there are so many better hotels to stay in.
