Fair 4.0
Worn out towels and sheets, slow checkin and long waiting time at the reception for whatever you need, no perks for being Expedia VIP, mediocre side is location and airy bright rooms.

Nearby the downtown Dubai development and accessed by metro walkway to the Dubai mall (15 min walk). Our large suite was large and was well appointed, although with a musty smell and smoky odor in the ventilation.

Ahmed, us4 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
Check in was easy. It was my birthday so they upgraded us to a bigger room which was so lovely and unexpected! The room was beautiful, sea view. The pool is beautiful with great views of the burj khalifa. Wilson was extremely helpful and drove us to the beach. Since we were the only people on the shuttle he gave us a mini tour on the way there and back. Again so unexpected and appreciated and gave us suggestions for things to do and see! He seemed to really enjoy his job and it showed! We were there 8 days. The only small glitch was 2 times i tried to reach the concierge, he/she wasnt there and i couldnt get my questions answered because i was told they werent the concierge and therefore couldn't assist us. The location is great, 1 block from the subway station. And you can walk to the dubai mall and burj khalifa. They had ample amounts of complimentary bottled water which was a pleasant surprise, particularly with the heat in dubai. And that made things so much easier because we didnt have to run to the convenient store everday to stock up on water... Very classy of the sofitel. I would absoluely stay there again!

Clean, calm and accommodating ideally located.
Amazing views from the room. The location of the hotel is ideal and handy for the metro and Dubai Mall. All staff were friendly and accommodating. A very clean and calming hotel. This was my second stay and it remains my “go to” hotel, the next time I visit Dubai.
