If you need a good night sleep....

Posted Dec 8, 2014
Pros: Quiet location, which is rare to find in Dubai.
Cons: I would add a little more decoration, flowers, fruits, pillows which can convert an anonymous place to a home.
Location: Festival city has a lot to offer. Great location for runners, path infant of the house.
...then I recommend this place. It is quiet and comfortable, close to the airport and therefor ideal for a stopover. For a longer stay I find it a bit soul- less.

Nice hotel close to the airport

Posted Oct 2, 2014
Pros: The staff was generally warm and friendly and the rooms comfortable and well equipped.
Cons: 1. Allocation of more vehicles for the shuttle service to the hotel itself. 2. Some solution to the availablity of alcohol.
Location: Location is relatively near the airport so many of the city's attractions are a drive away (15/20 minutes) but for conferences it is convenient.
I was attending two back to back conferences at the Intercontinental hotel and thought that the Residences would be quieter and the rooms more spacious. Both these were aspects in fact met. Additionally the staff were welcoming and pleasant. However the absence of a license to serve alcohol meant there was no bar and the restaurant/cafe was mostly empty. While the group I was attending the conference with got late check outs approved at the hotel which was visibly busier, my was turned down and the reason given was that policy required them to charge an extra half days rate if I stayed beyond the 2pm stipulated time. My flight as that of my other colleagues was at 11pm and I felt disadvantaged being at the Residences which did not appear to be very busy.

Tophotel aan de rand van de stad.

Posted Feb 22, 2015
Pros: Het restaurant van het hotel is fantastisch!
Location: Dichtbij Festval Citty, Ikea maar ook 10 minuutjes met de tram van Deira of oud Dubai.
Een fantastisch hotel dat hoort bij het Intercontinental maar een gebouw is. Er rijdt een (gratis) shuttle tussen de twee. De kamer van dit residence hotel was mooi en groot. De keuken is compleet met wasmachine, nespressoapparaat enz... Het bed was zalig. Eigenlijk was het de eerste keer dat we een bed hadden dat lekkerder was dan thuis. Kussenservice, je kunt het zo gek niet verzinnen. Met de taxi rijd je voor AED12,00 naar het dichtsbijzijnde metrostation waardoor je snel in de stad bent.
