In a great location in downtown Dubai, the Vida is a beautiful hotel with a great pool that has amazing 4-poster sun loungers. The rooms are well equipped, as you'd expect, there's a very nice poolside buffet breakfast and room service is varied, efficient and reasonable. But the best thing about this place are the staff. From housekeeping to reception...

We should have stayed at Vida but when we tried to check in (after a 7 hour flight and being stuck in traffic for an hour) we were told the hotel had over booked and we would have to move to another hotel. When questioned it was explained it is normal to over book as usually some guests cancel. This...

Good business hotel. Smart and new, with lots of funky modern twists to the design like the "wand" style remote controlled TV in the bedroom. Staff were great and the restaurant food was good. The poolside bar seemed to cater for a lot of local guests at night, with quite a lot of loud music from a DJ, but with...

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.
