I stayed at the Dubai International during a layover last year and it worked so well that I planned the flight to specifically to include the layover this year. Advance purchase keeps the price down (although it is expensive) and ensures you're met as you get off the plane. The guy who did the escort obviously knew his way aroud and took me through a security scan that had no-one waiting so got to the hotel check-in very promptly. Within a very few minutes I was in the room.

The room was better than I remembered from last time - some refurbishment has been going on and other than one or two marks on the carpet it was spotless. Had room service before bed and again at breakfast for less than 100 dirhams total which I though was not bad.

For people who don't realise, this hotel is airside and you don't have access to your checked luggage - that's the whole point. But really you need no hand luggage other than a change of clothes - all toiletries, bathrobe and slippers are supplied.

As I got on to my flight to Australia the next morning I felt a miilion times better than I would have if I had just transferred straight off the flight from Europe.

We had a 10 hour stopover in Dubai although with flight delays it was only 8 hours. We were meet off the airbridge from the Emirates flight and escorted through transit security and up to the hotel within 20 minutes of landing. The check-in was slightly chaotic but the room was well presented and it was lovely to have a sleep and shower before continuing on with the long flight to New Zealand. I would definitely stay here again if in transit.

This hotel, as you would expect, is high-priced for little luxury. However, when you have that really long layover in Dubai, and you don't want to go through the hassle of going through customs (visas, etc.), then it is really worth it.

We stayed here as we had an overnight stopover in Dubai. The hotel was expensive but great - modern and clean. No wireless access in room, but there was a small lounge nearby that had it. It advertised a pool but the facilities were not yet open. There was a spa near the hotel which was nice. Note: if staying in this hotel you cannot collect your checked in baggage!

We stayed here on 1st July for one night to break our journey when returning to the UK from a month in Malaysia.

It is quite easy to find the hotel once you realise there is an East side and a west side to it and it is realy is only a short distance from getting off your flight to arriving in the hotel as it is based on the 5th and 6th floors of the airport. If they are expecting you though they do make the effort to come and meet you off your flight which is a nice touch.

Check in was pretty smooth although we checked in to the East side of the hotel and our room was on the west side but we were correctly directed to where we needed to be. Once there we were shown to our room immediately. The great thing with this hotel is that you can check in at anytime and check out at any time depending on your flight times. You just let them know your flight number when you book, so bear that in mind when making your booking.

We booked a triple room and this was made up as such when we arrived. I nice touch was also that they had used common sense in that as we had booked a triple there would be three people using the room! Therefore there were three bottles of water, three robes, three sets of towels etc etc. I know this sounds a basic thing but often hotels don't think about that and leave you two of everything so that you then after ask for an extra set! This also extended to the toiletries in the bathroom of which there was a good selection. As this hotel is obviously used for transit purposes they do provide a good range of toiletries including toothpaste, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, mouthwash, soap, body lotion etc etc - even perfume!

The room did look a little tired but I think this was mostly due to the carpet (which I think has been mentioned by others) but it was spotlessly clean and so this is really a minor detail. The general amenities were good with a good quality TV, well stock, reasonably priced (for soft drinks) mini bar, tea and cofee, cups, glasses, safe deposit box etc etc.

We thought we may get some noise from the terminal below but we heard absolutely nothing all night. Both rooms were occupied either side of us but again we heard nothing from either side. The beds are superbly comfortable and we had a great nights sleep (which was exactly what we needed from this hotel!) and (and I do think this is the best bit!) we could use the room for as long as we needed until it was time for our flight to board without worrying about being disturbed or having the pressure of a check out time.

We were checked out as efficiently as we were checked in and boarded our flight in good shape.

Pro's - fab location, vey comfortable and efficient, well equiped, ability to book for as long as you need
Cons - hot water took a bit of figuring, internet very hit and miss in your room but good in the lobby

The other consideration is that the cost was£150 for one night for 3 people which is pretty steep for somewhere just to sleep. However, I think it was worth that given we had an excellent night's sleep and it really did help to put us in good shape for our continued journey.

Would I stay again? Definitely
