We were flying into Dubai from Durban in South Africa and we desperately wanted a shower! We asked in reception at the Dubai International hotel - they were so very helpful. They directed us to their health club where private shower facilities are available. This includes a towelling robe, towels, all the toiletries you could possibly need - spotlessly clean. It costs US$ 14 per person but well worth every penny. I did not want to come out of the shower! There are also hair dryers available. It did help a lot as we had nearly 8 hours to face getting into Gatwick. You just come through arrivals, into departures and you will see a sign for the hotel - just get into the lift and head for reception.

We chose to stay at the Dubai International Hotel for the convenience. We had an 8-hour connection and decided to stay in the Airport.

If it is your first time in Dubai ever and you get 8 hours or more to wait for you connection, do consider staying here. It is not too expensive, they charge for every six hours. For us it was a total of 160 dollars.

To use the mini bar of the room they require an extra 300 AED (around 80 USD) which is totally not worth it since there are mini markets inside the airport in walking distance where you can buy sodas and water for 7 AED (less than 2 USD). Even a Starbucks right in front of the entrance.

The restaurants around the airport are very cozy in the early hours of the morning and are open 24 hours. Food is great too and not expensive.

We merely used to room to sleep for 3 hours and take a shower, other than that, there is a lot to do inside an airport and the variety of stores and things to see is very interesting. So it was a fun experience!

I decided to stay @ Dubai International Airport Hotel for my 7 hours stopover in Dubai. I did not want to book a hotel but my husband insisted on it. It was worth it! The room was big, stylist & nice. The bed was comfy & i had a good sleep before my next connection flight to Singapore :) The shower was awesome! Will definitely book this hotel if i have a long stopover in Dubai.

I stayed here for about 8 hours with my mom and dad. The rooms are nice, service is excellent, everything is good except for the price tag it came with. It cost about 230 USD for 8 hours for a normal deluxe room. Personally I think this is a bit too much.

An elderley couple arrived from Geneva at midnight with a written prepaid confirmation of funds paid in full for their stopover in Dubai before they continued their journey, and were denied access to their room by reception as they said the accommodation had not been prepaid. What is the world coming to when old people are left in transit for 10 hours because someone never did their job correctly ! ! ! Of course the check in personel now have no recollection of this incident at all and no one wants to take the blame. When I called earlier I asked to be transferred to a manager but got cut off in the process. I am a travel agent and I will never ever recommend any one to stay with this hotel again
The staff pretend not to know what is going on.
shocking ! ! !
