I was recommended by a friend to come here for a coffee and was not disappointed. Outside seating is available which looks out onto the Dubai fountains. Breakfast and pastry were tasty and decent coffee. Staff were friendly and always at hand but not overbearing.

The food is avarage after they have changed the menu(it was AMAZING BEFORE) but the worst thing is the people working here. Grumpy faces. Never say 'welcome' 'thank you' etc. Change the personal if they dont like their job

Hiya, Does the hotel provide a safe and an iron in the hotel room? And if the hotel room was booked through Expedia, is it still possible to upgrade to an executive room upon arrival?

Since the founding of a small bakery in the French town of Lille back in 1889, the passion for authentic bread making and quality ingredients has remained in the family and been passed on through generations. And so, until today, the love for everything fresh and for good is at the heart of every PAUL. In addition to the bread and viennoiserie which is baked several times a day, the menu at PAUL boast a good selection of light meals and main courses, as well as desserts and fine pâtisserie. Over time, PAUL has become a successful restaurant business with more than 450 shops in 24 countries and has become renowned for its ‘rustic-chic’ ambience - a true celebration of the French ‘art-de-vivre’. We look forward to welcoming you!
