After a hectic, delayed airtravel to Dubai we were ready for a well run luxury hotel experience which Raffles delivered beautifully. First we were greeted at the airport by a friendly hotel representative. Arrival to the hotel was quick as the hotel is quite close to the airport( but no overhead air traffic at all). Hotel is perfectly located if...

I ordered a single and the waitress asked if I wanted a double. That’s when it struck me that this was my kind of hotel. I think Raffles is the best hotel I’ve stayed at anywhere. When I got to Dubai at 3pm the traffic was utterly horrible. The last kilometer to the hotel took 15 minutes with the driver...

I've stayed here twice on business. It was 3 years since my last trip. But I remember the service being excellent and the rooms have everything you need - still the same on this return trip. The gym and pool area are great for short stints after a day's work. It's very easy to get to the airport in 10/15mins...
