Editorial review:

Enjoy this world class hotel and its super high quality Fire and Ice restaurant as well as the spectacular New Asia Bar that sits atop the hotel’s glass pyramid. You’ll rub shoulders with guests from all over the world and see Sheiks relaxing in the gorgeous lobby. The sleeping rooms have a deep red, blue and taupe décor and the bathrooms shine in natural stone imported from Egypt. All of your troubles will melt under the massaging rainfall showers available in each room. Service is more than attentive and your morning wake up call comes with a fresh cup of coffee. Everything is top notch from Bose stereos to crystal stemware. If you have been searching for a luxury hotel worthy of its designation, this may just be the hotel for you.

                    Above all the staff were incrediblly good. They were very warm and charming without being obsequious; they were extremely polite, professional, efficient and helpful, nothing was too much for them and everything was done with pleasure - the service, and those providing it, were simply first class, exceptional - they clearly take pride in their work and they should be very very proud of themselves. All this was wrapped in beautiful and well maintainted surroundings encompassing great facilities. I am all out of superlatives. Just try it and you won't be disappointed.

                    I thought my experience was excellent. It was my wives birthday and they upgraded us and had rose pedals all over the room when we arrived. The club facilities were also of a high standard with a good range of quality snacks and unlimited quality alclolic drinks. I have travelled all over the world and this is one of the best hotels I have stayed in.

                    One small point was the service at breakfast ,which we found slow

                    Signature room size was amazing, the view of the hotel too

                    Staff were unfriendly from the time I check-in! I requested for early Check-in for 4 rooms, but they didn't give me the rooms in time!!! 2 rooms were given before 2:00 pm! 1 room after 2:30 pm! And the fourth room was given @ 10:30 pm!!!!! Also in Check-out, I checked-out and I was almost going away from the hotel, another staff call me requesting me to check-out! which I had already check-out before!!

                    コンシェルジェに依頼したエミレーツ航空への車の手配がされていなかった。 帰国後クレームを送ったが、それにも対応しない。 どんなに施設が良くても愛想がよくてもホテルとしてこれは最低最悪。 2度と行きたくない。 Hotel concierge did not call Emirates as I asked. And did not response for my claim. Worst!

                    The stay was more than excellent I know a lot about Dubai hotel I used to stay in Fairmont and Hoilday Inn .. Now I will definitely be a loyal Raffles guest My regards and appreciation for all the Raffles staff and managment

                    I just want to know if my credit card was charged by Booked.net , as I had enterd the details of the credit card at time of reservation on 22 Sept 2011 because I had to pay for full stay amount at Raffles front desk Awaiting your kind reply and clarification Thanks

                    Rooms are amazying, very nice decoration and view to Burj Khalifa. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

                    Location is not the best. A construction in front of the hotel may disturb a little.

                    After a shaky start regarding our check in, things after that turned to the best, the suite was spacious and comfortable, with a very nice balcony. The lobby of the hotel had the word luxury written all over it. The food was splendid. The check out service made it up for the check in with a nice complementary tea, a fast checkout process and very very nice staff. Raffles is a hotel that I will come to again anytime!

                    Just the issue regarding the check in.

                    simply everything, i booked for 1 night from Booked.net, but then i extended my stay when i was there for extra 3 nights.

                    location, comfort, style and the addicting bathroom

                    Raffles Dubai is a true five star experience in every sense of the word. From the checking in service to the food quality and selection, from the club room appointments to the hospitality of the staff, we were treated like royalty. If only all hotels were as good. But that's what makes the Raffles special.

                    That we had to leave so soon!

                    Guest relations, concierge; the personnel, generally. The spacious room. The rain shower.

                    Wonderful stay at this hotel always fantastic. Hotel service has improved much. Rooms very comfortable and pretty with a nice environment inside. Great service provided and very good prices unlike other hotels. The hotel always looks new and well taken care off. Everything is clean and up to 5 star standards. Recommend this hotel for Honeymoons and solo travelers.

                    Room service menu should have a wider selection and they should definitely change the cook or head chef responsible for the food because it doesnt taste so good. The hotel is great but the food not so. I tried about every food item on the menu stayed many times and have not liked anything so far. Also the gents saloon is terrible I payed 100$ for an awful shave. Would have done it myself but I didnt know.

                    From start to finish , the experience was 1st class. We booked a Club room and I would advise all to book likewise. The afternoon tean and evening aperitif and canapés included in this rate are fab.

                    We were offered to upgrade to a suite and it was worth it. Great deal.

                    We were interrupted once by room service just letting themselves in. We told the desk.

                    Excellent service. Stayed in club room and perks far outweighed what was expected. Luxury above many other hotels in this city of 5 stars.

                    Some noise from traffic when at pool.
