Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    As an extremely frequent flyer on Emirates, I gain access to both their first and business class lounges. Its important to know that when accessing the lounges you can choose which lounge you wish to use and its also important to know that while you typically have access to only concourse A,B and C while flying on Emirates, B and C are directly connected with each other while A is accessed via a short fast train trip.

    The A and B lounges are both large, running almost the entire length of the concourse. They have plenty of seating and a variety of excellent food and drink choices as well as spa service, although you need a decent amount of time to book one of these typically as there are often wait times. Both classes of lounge are elegant experiences with comfortable chairs, sofa's quiet areas and couches as well as dining experiences. The First class food is really something special and the sushi is particularly good (try the Tuna sashimi and Prawn nigiri for a real treat). They also serve real Wagyu beef and the sirloin is superb. The real difference between the A and B lounges is the availability of a dedicated cigar lounge in the A lounge, while the B lounge has a "smoking area". Don't envision smoke filled rooms as the filters are superb and I expect the air to be some of the cleanest in the whole airport in these spaces! The C lounge is much more like an American airline lounge. You get the same food but it is much smaller with fewer private areas but if you are in one of the further C gates it is obviously more convenient. Just a tip though, if you ask the front desk in any lounge to arrange a golf cart they will from B to C and it goes halfway before you have to descend long escalators but at the bottom I have always found more carts which means that it really is no problem to use the B lounges rather than the smaller C lounges, just give yourself an extra 10 minutes to travel if you use the carts. It can be a long walk if you don't!

    The A concourse and B lounges are situated directly above the concourse shopping area and one can board often directly from them onto your flight (although there are some exceptions to this) via an elevator lift. There is a dedicated check in. The only issue with using these boarding gates is they typically start boarding economy first then business then first and well, when you are travelling in one of the Emirates First Suites, I like to get onboard and enjoy it so sometimes I go down and board with economy and of course they still allow First and Business to board first! Another issue with using the lounge boarding is that if you are on route to the USA, you have to go down to the boarding gate and stand to have the additional security search done and so it is, I have found, typically quicker to again go down and board with economy as they search before you enter the waiting area. So one just has to make a choice.

    If I had to rate them I would rate the lounges as B first, then A, then C, the only reason for this being the shopping in B concourse is superior to what is offered in A.

    The hospitality of Plaza premium lounge staffs was admirable and we were very happy with our choice. I am well pleased to say that Palza Premium Lounge is a best option to spend time in Dubai airport.

    Good place, barely anybody in there, so you can have it all to yourself. The exhibit contains some very interesting personal objects of important Emirati women, lots of info about women's role in the UAE. The second floor has walls filled with poems (amazing!). The place has great energy. The lady at the entrance is also a great guide and she can answer many questions.

    Marhaba Lounge Terminal 3 Concourse C Dubai: Expectations were kept knee low after having ploughed through terrible reviews. However we had a flight out at 3.15 am so a lounge sit down became a necessity. Reception was polite but one of them was rather bitchy with rolling eyes at some of the rather peculiar requests from other guests. I found it amusing. The set-up is small - there’s a food area where hot food, along with salad and sandwiches/wraps are served. There’s a coffee machine and juice. The food is mostly carbs but OK. There are cushioned bench seats and bar seats. There’s a bar that serves most mainstream alcohol like house wine, beefeater gin, Jack Daniels, vodka, rum, beer. It’s a pretty decent bar. You don’t get fancy cocktails of course but straight-up mixes. There are nuts and chips to upgrade your drinking experience. The sitting lounge is where things could improve. There aren’t recliners and most travellers coming in are looking for a spot to sleep. So you get people barefoot propped their feet up. Also, past midnight, it gets really crowded with guests turned away or waiting in line for leavers. There was a reserved area and I had absolutely no clue why it was reserved. That took up a lot of space. It was the Qatar World Cup going on, so most just want to watch matches with drinks. #eatstylishtravelstylish
