SOFITEL DUBAI CITY CENTRE: "Best place to start your shopping in Dubai" Dubai Hotel Tip by rj13

Dubai Hotels: 393 reviews and 560 photos

The main attraction of this hotel to me was the Deira City Centre. The mall is really huge and it took me more than 3 days to really discover the mall. Good selection of shops; not too expensive like Wafi or Burjuman, various food courts offering an international cuisine and the generally pleasant ambience of the place. It was so convenient to pop in and out of the hotel to the mall particularly when I had a baby in tow. It saved me on my transportation and meals expenses.
The hotel staff was very courteous and generally aim to please. Service was prompt and friendly. Great place to stay in Dubai.

Unique Qualities: The location of the hotel to the biggest mall in the middle east is the star quality. However the hotel has the normal city view, in this case you can spot the nearby airport !! Try not to get the rooms facing the roof of the huge shopping mall. You are then better off closing the curtains!
