I was throughly impressed by the Riviera. Everything in my large room was in superb condition, I felt so comfortable and slept perfectly. Breakfast was good, particularly the Middle Eastern selections. Even though I ate late, the buffet selection was still fresh and bright. The staff were professional and welcoming, from the beginning of my stay to the end. The...

This hotel is not high rise luxury. It is a well maintained property facing The Creek waterway. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The staff is most welcoming and keen to be of service. The taxi ride from the airport is AUS$12. They do not serve alcohol but you can stock the minibar or go next door to the...

The hotel is right on the creek, which you can access using the pedestrrian crossing. The rooms appear to have recently had a makeover, but overall it is an outmoded hotel. Unfortunately my room, which was of a good size and had a small lounge area as well, had a distinct smell of urine in the carpet. The stain/s couldn't...

I stayed here recently for two nights, with my elderly grandmother. She was tired after a flight from the UK (heading back to New Zealand) and t his hotel turned out to be very good for us. I would not describe it as a four-star hotel, more like three-star. But it was comfortable and very good value for Dubai. There...

The Riviera is an average, 3 star hotel. Nothing stood out as particularly bad, but nothing was particularly great as well. At $100/night, the price is reasonable for what you get. One odd thing I wasn't used to was that I couldn't find a power outlet in the bedroom. The internet experience sucked, I had to call down to the...

This Hotel is located within walking distance from the Gold and Spice Souks. Breakfast is EXCELLENT!. Great food, fresh and well prepared. The employees here are very helpful and nice. Bellboy ASHOK and Lobby employee Ataf were wonderful. They helped me a lot. Very cooperative, they made me feel at home. Internet is only 20 dirhams per hour in the...

We arrived at the hotel about 6.30am for 2 nights after an overnight flight from New Zealand. They knew to expect us early but our room wasn't quite ready. The man on reception was apologetic and our luggage was locked up securely. We asked if it would be possible to have our breakfast when the dining room opened as we...

When we arrived at the Riviera Hotel, the staff, Grace and Samar, welcomed us by name. We had just come from the Burj al Arab where you are not a number and the same holds true for the Riviera.!! Samar Khalil told Grace to put us in a wonderful room overlooking the Dubai Creek that we had requested. What a...
