Sheraton Deira Hotel
Travel Blogs from Dubai
I arrived back in Kohima on the 20th Dec after one of the least painful journeys experienced. The 10 seater sumo I booked only had one other passenger booked from Mokokchung to Kohima, and despite the driver’s best efforts, he was unable to recruit any other passengers. Consequently it was like being in a private vehicle, with none of the …
15th October 2013 - We arrived safely in Dubai after a near 14 and a half hour flight. Amelia and I managed to get a bit of sleep on the plane but Jess just couldn't get comfortable despite a few night caps she had under her belt. The Emirates crew were amazingly kind and helpful and the food wasn't too bad either. For dinner we had a three bean …

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Deira Hotel Dubai
If going for holiday dont bother staying at this hotel
I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights and did not enjoy because of noise around.......Nice Hotel but its in the path of screaming flights not good for relaxing holidays
We stayed at the sheraton deira for 3 weeks, initally wondering what we would do and what would be on offer.
The hotel was typical dubai standard, clean and business like.
The breakfast was great and there was a charming rooftop pool and bar which surprisingly was not over crowded giving great views of the city, however it was under the fligh path for the airport which was about 10 minutes drive away, but to be honest it didn't spoil anything.
There was easy access into the town centre by taxi but if you wanted to stay in at night the resturants and bars were relaxed with a nice atmosphere.
There was also a hotel bus which took you to the sister hotel on the beach but to be honest we much prefered where we were.
Would definately go back to Dubai it was a great place for holidays.
Nice hotel, disappointing location
Spent a week at the Sheraton Deira in April 05. This was a very comfortable hotel, pleasant and extremely helpful staff, well appointed room, and food above average. However----- the hotel is on the flight path from the airport (ten minutes away ) and lying by the pool was not a peaceful experience when every twenty minutes or so a plane went screaming by. Also there was a disco which didn't close til three o'clock in the morning on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Our room was on the first floor and unfortunately the thumping of the music could be heard quite clearly. The traffic in Dubai is horrendous and trying to get to the other side of the creek where most of the evening's attractions were took up so much time. The location of the hotel is not ideal.
This could be so much better
This hotel was not bad but it could have been so much better. On the positive side the lobby staff were helpful and friendly, however reception have got fobbing off to a fine art.
There is a problem with noise from the many bars and lounges that can go on till 3 in the morning. Breakfast can be a bit of a scrum as the choice is limited and the buffet area small, however the quality of the food is good. This hotel is under the flight path, not a problem in the hotel, but makes lounging round the roof pool interesting. The location is very good for shopping,.
Would i use it again -yes- but there are similar hotels that do it better. I would rate this as 3-4 star definatly not 4-5 star.
Great hotel, great service
I stayed here for one night on business in November 2004. I had got a great deal on the web for a King Suite. The room was really well appointed, and the staff could not have been more helpful - always using my name! Not the best location if you are here for fun, but as a business base it cant be faulted.
I stayed here in October with my son. The room was clean and spacious. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, excellant service. Loved the roof top swimming pool. Loved the restaurant, so much choice for breakfast again excellant service.
Free bus to citi centre mall and jumeriah beach. First class hotel, with first class staff at all levels.
My wife and I stayed in this hotel last September and found the hotel very well appointed, our room was spacious and very clean. We were only staying for three nights but found the staff more than helpfull. The hotel run theme nights for the food and we ate in the hotel for the two nights, we found the food was very good and plentifull. As we were there in September the hotel was pretty quiet, most of the times we were in the restaurant it was almost empty. When we advised we were leaving at 6am the hotel laid on a fantasctic room service breakfast for us. We are going back in September again for three nights. The only fault I had was the pool was being refurbished and we were not able to have a swim, but will make up for it this year. Also the hotel is in a built up area, but is ideal for shopping etc, this was the reason we picked it initially.
Good location for shopping!!
I stayed at this hotel in February 2004. I found the staff extremely helpful and courteous. The rooms were of medium size wth nice decor. The hotel has a lovely rooftop swimming pool however there is aircraft noise. If your planning a sun holiday this is not the hotel for you however for a shopping trip it is perfect-with all the major shopping malls being a 5 minute taxi ride away. The hotel also offers a shuttle bus to the Sheraton beach resort which is a must! All in all i would definitly stay here again.
RUN, Don't Walk Away! This was Sherry Hell.
First off, this Sheraton is not the Sheraton on the Water...this is the smaller, cheaper version. Prior to arrival, we had requested rooms (for 4 nights) that were large enough to accomodate our four adults and two children. They had us booked in a suite....the suites have one king bed. That was not enough for all of us. The front desk boy was less than pleased...as if we had purposely booked a room that was too small for ourselves. It seemed to pain him to try to find room for us. They had only one other suite next door that was available, according to his little computer. We didn't have any other choice but to take both suites and add roll-away's. The suites were typical suites...nothing extraordinary, but nothing horrible. We went to the restaraunt that was having their "seafood buffet". It was horrendous! The food was gone by 9:00 and they did not replenish their dishes. The wait staff was awful, so much so that they had seated a woman at our table while we were at the buffet. The poor woman was mortified when we came back to the table and asked her to move. The tables that surrounded us were FULL of dirty dishes from customers that had left...and we added ours to those tables when we had completed one of our mini-courses. There was one waitress that was helpfull and we complimented her on her abilities and mentioned that the rest of the staff (though few as there were) needed to take lessons from her. We left there the next day and went to the Concorde Suites/Apartments...those were beyond perfect for the rest of our vacation in Dubai. That Sherry needs a new overhaul! HORRIBLE!
