« Fabulous Dubai »

We have just returned home after a fantastic five nights at the Sofitel Dubai Downtown which was a break whilst travelling between the UK and New Zealand. What a fabulous time we had. The location was perfect, just walking distance from the Dubai Shopping Mall and the Burj Khalifa. There were so many amazing trips and activities to do I think we will have to return some time to do some more.

Ammar H, General Manager at Sofitel Dubai Downtown, responded to this review

« Superb hotel »

I loved staying at the Sofitel Downtown Dubai. Firstly, the location is ideal. You are very close to the Dubai Mall as well as the Burj Khalifa. The hotel is modern and spacious. The rooms are the largest I have ever seen with every modern con. The service is excellent and is the buffet breakfast. I would give it top marks. I will certainly stay here again when I next return to Dubai.

« Outstanding hotel »

We recently stayed at the Sofitel Dubai downtown for my husbands birthday. The hotel is superb in every way - location, distance to the Dubai metro and air conditioned walkways to The Dubai Mall. We were fortunate to be upgraded to a suite for our stay, which was a wonderful surprise and made our stay here a pleasure. Special thank you to Khaled for his outstanding service at check-in. We will be back here again and will be looking forward to spending time at this wonderful hotel.

« unbelievable! »

Had the most amazing stay at the Sofitel downtown. Could not fault one thing! The staff could not do enough for you, every afternoon they would knock at your room offering you fresh snacks and drinks which we thought was amazing! Very friendly hotel and located in such a good area by Dubai mall and Burj Kalifa/ fountains. With Jumeirah only 15 minute taxi ride away. Only thing is when we arrived we had to put a 2000 aed deposit down which is roughly 400 gbp. As we wasn't informed about this we held the deposit on our Visa card. Just a heads up to make sure you have it!

Ammar H, General Manager at Sofitel Dubai Downtown, responded to this review

Dear amyr19x, Thank you for choosing to stay at Sofitel Dubai Downtown and for posting a review on TripAdvisor. I am pleased to know that you had a magnifique stay with us and that you were happy with the exceptional service you received from our ambassadors, as well as, enjoyed the snacks trolley offered in the afternoon during your stay. I am also glad that the convenient location of the hotel worked very well for you. With regard to the deposit, please be assured that this is a standard practice in most hotels to cover incidentals and is absolutely refundable upon check out if not consumed. Thank you for sharing your feedback and we hope to welcome you back soon on your next visit to Dubai for another magnifique stay. Feel welcome, Ammar Hilal General Manager

« Wonderful Stay »

The hotel was beautiful, the staff was pleasant and most helpful. However, they overbooked and the room we had reserved with two beds was unavailable and we were given a room with one bed and told they would bring in a roll away - but the roll away was never brought up.

Ammar H, General Manager at Sofitel Dubai Downtown, responded to this review

Dear jboback, Thank you for sharing your feedback pertaining to your stay at Sofitel Dubai Downtown. Whilst I appreciate your wonderful comments about the hotel and warm hospitality of our ambassadors, I read with great concern that our services did not meet your expectations.

« Excellent hotel in the centre of Downtown »

Perfect place, excellent service, nice interior, direct access to Dubai Mall. Only the Burj Khalifa postcard-view is hidden by a new construction, but I´m still satisfied by 100% after I stayed at the hotel 5 times now. I really can recommend it.

Ammar H, General Manager at Sofitel Dubai Downtown, responded to this review
