Before going to Dubai for the first time the main source of information and pictures about Dubai’s hotels I could rely on, not surprisingly, was the internet. And, to be honest, I belonged to the great majority of web users who believe that there must always be a certain gap between what you see on the web and its reality.
So, when I approached my first visits to several luxury, 5 and 4 star hotels in Dubai I was expecting much disappointment and a few WOWs. Well, as visits followed each other I just had to invert this relation: a few disappintment and many WOWs!
Hotels in Dubai share a high standard as a whole, i.e. what should elsewhere be considered a 4-star hotel, for instance, here is definitely classified as a 3-star property. And so on. So, as you go up along this scale you’ll be more and more surprised by the extremely high-quality level of the hotel facilities which often constitute also outstanding models of Arabian, modern or futuristic architecture.
Inside the hotels in Dubai you’ll discover excellent amenities, great care of details, refined interiors, comfortable and luxury rooms and, usually, several restaurants, cafes and pubs able to offer both guests of the hotel and coming from outside an extensive, inviting array of different gastronomy schools, some of them being also open 24h/7. The standard of cuisine is equally noteworthy: the whole world is represented throughout Dubai thanks to numberless outlets coming from the five continents with different levels of prices which make it possible to all visitors to get in touch with various culinary arts. Don’t worry in case you can’t access luxury restaurants as you’ll succeed in enjoying tasty, mouthwatering food also at reasonable prices and even in food courts (generally located inside the shopping malls), if you pay attention to some details and take your time before choosing yours!

And the hotel staff? Perhaps one of the most pleasant aspects of my report: personnel selections are extremely accurate and demanding. As a result, you’ll perceive high know-how and skills alongside with frequent training courses so that each hotel group boasts its individual personality, a bunch of special characteristics which give a unique style and cannot be confused with other ones.
