Lovely place to stay, went as part of our honeymoon. Room was spotless and had a great view over the city. Without stating the obvious - Dubai is hot (but that should come as no surprise!). The hotel does try to work round this - for example with outdoor air conditioning in the bar terrace in the evening - but...

On a recent week in Dubai, in the company of my youngest daughter, we had a splendid week at Raffles in Dubai. The weather was stunningly unseasonable for a dessert city however, staying at Raffles Dubai made up for this.
