I am on road for more than 5 months every year. Usually, the southern sun hotels are good but the Al Manzil hotel room lay out was awkward to say the least. The bath tub was right next to the TV. Further, the hotel costs more than 220 USD minimum. I would rather prefer staying at 5* Hilton or Marriott... More

I stayed only one night at the Al Manzil but really enjoyed my stay. It's a relatively expensive hotel by my standards but it was worth the money. The welcome was good and the front desk manager was particularly helpful. I must say I liked the open-plan layout of the room but then I was on my own - unless... More

We chose to stay at this hotel due to close proximity to places we wanted to visit - The Burj, Dubai Mall, restaurants etc. All staff were extremely friendly, helpful and professional and every assistance was provided to make our stay a fantastic experience.

We received stellar service for the whole visit! The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are nice and fairly large with comfortable beds in which we slept quite well. But....the room design is terrible. The bathroom is in the middle of the bedroom with only thin glass walls and door separating the toilet activities from the rest of the room,... More

Nice boutique hotel in the downtown area. Very close to the Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa and The Palace Hotel. Rooms are nice and cozy. Rooms have open bathrooms (little too open for comfort). Breakfast and food is ok and sufficient. The room we stayed was facing the Burj Khalifa so the view was excellent.

I stayed at the Al Manzil hotel in Dubai for two weeks on a business trip. It is in an excellent location as it is a short walk to the Dubai Mall where you can get a large variety of food and if you don't mind walking it is close enough to the Burj Khalifa. The room I was in... More

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
