A review of Sofitel Dubai Downtown by Manal Assaad
Dubai is one of the most vibrant cities in the world where there is a lot happening everywhere at the same time, and lots of things to do and see that, as a tourist, you wouldn’t know where to start… to make it a great start, start at Sofitel Dubai Downtown!
Sofitel hotels are known to be among the top luxury hotels in the world, but what makes Sofitel Dubai Downtown remarkable is that you can stay with a view of Dubai’s most iconic landmark: Burj Khalifa. The hotel is also a walking a distance through the metro tunnel to Dubai Mall, the biggest and most popular mall in Dubai, which is a must in your itinerary, whether you’re looking to go for a movie, shopping, or dining at one of the many distinguished restaurants, especially those by the famous Musical Fountain. What makes the hotel’s location even more so strategic is that it is perfectly situated in the heart of Dubai, almost halfway to all the attractions, whether in the direction of the cultural and historic Deira and Bur Dubai or in the direction of the splendid and glamorous Dubai Marina and Jumeirah.
But all that may not matter once you experience the comfort and luxury at the hotel, which might make you not want to leave the premise! With spacious modern rooms and extremely comfy beds, a fitness club and spa, a variety of restaurants with exquisite cuisines, swimming pools, and all the amenities that you may require or can pamper yourself with, relaxing at the hotel can be a vacation on its own. You will experience the warm hospitality of the hotel from the smiling staff at the entrance, through checking-in, and all the way to the welcoming gifts and treats you will find in the room, which you can select with a view of Burj Khalifa, Sheikh Zayed Road, or both!
If you do decide to leave the hotel to explore Dubai, you can use the hotel’s chauffeur services to take you around to all the nearby attractions, or arrange fun activities like boat excursions and jet skiing, as well as golf. And if you’re up for it, and it’s your first time, then be sure to take a metro ride as the station is just a few steps away from the hotel’s entrance and can take you to plenty of Dubai’s attractions easily, though avoid peak hours!
So whether you’re looking for luxury or convenience in Dubai, Sofitel Dubai Downtown will guarantee you the best of both worlds.
