Nearest hotel to each Metro Station - a (rough) list

An approximate/desktop study of ‘closest’ hotel to each Dubai Metro stations.

Note 1) it's open to interpretation, but generally it's taken from the main metro station/hotel position on Google Maps, and depends on the suggested walking route.

Note 2) Some Metro stations have several exits (e.g. Al Rigga A1, A2) so actual walking distance could be shorter dependent on exits, shortcuts etc. 😄

Feel free to comment, feedback or debate ❓

@Hugedxb - I'd refer you to the notes, and the term 'nearest'

"Note 1) it's open to interpretation, but generally it's taken from the main metro station/hotel position on Google Maps, and depends on the suggested walking route"

By the above proviso, neither CP to WTC or Kempinski to MOE is nearer. Nearby, granted, but not nearest ;-)

it's open to interpretation of course, but hopefully not misinterpretation of how the list was compiled...

Gevora or Towers Rotana to FC 1 minute? Are you Forest Gump? 😄 See What Google Says >>> screenshot

PS. Don't forget the Red Line improvements affecting some of the line around JLT > Ibn Battuta - though the stations/hotels shouldn't move ;-)

Sorry ... I know you said ‘nearest’ but I thought I’d add a few more which are definitely within walking distance. We stay at Towers Rotana and use the metro all the time. Should have said 1 minute to the entrance to the Metro footbridge. Gevora is right next door to Rose Reyhaan and directly opposite Towers Rotana.

Hakuna Matata - yup, there's all sorts of shortcuts etc. to these hotels, and Google certainly isn't infallible. Several hotels are marked up incorrectly on Google Maps - somehow.

Always good to have feedback; perhaps another list should be the best and nearest, as it would be quite different from the previous list.

Towers Rotana - excellent choice BTW !

Not the nearest according to Google. Very close though.

It’s an arbitrary but fun debate, and hopefully it helps someone. Thanks got your kind words Jaganhir
