Al Bandar Rotana Dubai Hotel Review

Dubai, perhaps one of the most known and most popular places in the beautiful Middle East. To me it always feels a bit like a fairytale world, the Middle East. Dubai is unlike anywhere else. In Dubai the motto is almost; the bigger the better! And for sure it will seem as if the Ferraris, Lamborghinis and other expensive things are given away for free. My advice? Let the sounds of the busy city, the magical and almost fairytale-like sights guide you through this city of a thousand nights. But where should I start I hear you think, and where is the best place to sleep and what are the best things to do in Dubai? It’s going to be hard to choose from the most stunning selection of luxury hotels. Don’t worry, I’ve got you let me guide you on the move.

Al Bandar Rotana – Hotel Review

Are you looking for a hotel in the old heart of the city close to the airport? Then stay at the 5 star hotel Al Bandar Rotana, like me. This modern, architecturally-striking property, features 190 uniquely-designed luxury hotel rooms and suites. Spacious, luxurious and featuring the latest amenities, options range from standard rooms to suites, ideal for both business and leisure travellers and families visiting Dubai.

Guests are spoiled for choice with five dining options to suit every taste and occasion during their stay in Dubai. From seasonal authentic food at Gusto Italian Restaurant to Morgan’s Bar & Restaurant, the only gastropub in Dubai Creek, you are in for a real treat. For casual meals, all-day dining restaurant Salt & Pepper is just the ticket, while Vanilla Lobby Lounge is the place to enjoy tea, coffee and snacks. All outlets are complemented with a terrace overlooking stunning views of the Creek and Dubai’s skyline. Refreshing drinks and snacks are served at The Deck Pool Lounge.

Rooms at Al Bandar Rotana – Hotel review

Unwind and enjoy modern luxury at its best at Al Bandar Rotana in Dubai Creek. All 190 hotel rooms and suites are spacious, equipped with the latest technology and offer a home away from home here in Dubai. Pick between a classic room, premium room, classic suite, premium suite and the royal suite. I’ve personally stayed in the classic suite where you have a king-size bed where you for sure will sleep like an angel, a lovely bathroom with bath(!), perfect views of the skyline and just seconds away from the pool and breakfast area.

If you can imagine a breakfast buffet area triple XL… Then this is your destination. Wow, what a food and what a quality and freshness of the products. You could choose from almost everything here and you could also have a lot of personalization. Breakfast is really a feast; for the extensive eater but also for the business traveller who wants a quick bite.
