An insider tip among the luxury city hotels is certainly The Oberoi Dubai. Due to its location in Business Bay, you can reach practically all well-known sights from there very quickly.
The bar where you also get cocktails
If you are looking for a city hotel in Dubai that is very luxurious and has a good price/performance ratio then you should take a look at The Oberoi Dubai. This is a hotel chain from India that is known for a very high standard. In principle, all hotels in the emirate have a very high standard. But this hotel goes one better and the service and benefits are even better than comparable hotels in the area. Furthermore, the low prices there convinced us, especially in the summer months. So you can spend a cheap vacation there in Dubai without having to forego luxury. However, we always recommend tourists to combine a beach and a city hotel. Then you just see more of the city.
Particularly noteworthy are the rooms and suites at The Oberoi Dubai. As a hotel guest, you can expect a lot of space and even the smallest room category Deluxe City View has a size of 52 square meters. So all the rooms are much bigger than the average and if you are lucky you might get a free upgrade. The hotel has a total of 252 rooms and they all have a panorama window with a great view of the skyline. Therefore, when checking in, you should always make sure that you get a room on the upper floors. If you want a view of the Burj Khalifa then you should book the Premier Room category. Furthermore, you have the advantage that you can take advantage of the happy hour in the Nine7One.
A nice courtyard from the hotel
There you get free drinks as a hotel guest. Then you have the option of booking a suite with a private balcony. Usually, a hotel tower does not have a balcony. But there this is possible and that is something very special that you can imagine. Another highlight in this hotel is certainly the bathrooms. These are particularly large and there is a separate shower and toilet. Then there is a separate room for clothes where there is also a safe. Not very many city hotels offer this. As a guest in this hotel, you get free bottled water in your room and fruit every day. If you tip the housekeeping staff, you get even more.
The gastronomy at The Oberoi Dubai is of a very high standard. We definitely recommend booking breakfast when booking this hotel. You can get numerous warm dishes from the buffet early in the morning. However, many Indian dishes as it is a hotel chain from India. But for Europeans, there are also a few things there, such as an omelet. The big advantage is certainly that the breakfast buffet changes.
The hallway from The Oberoi Dubai
You can also enjoy breakfast outside in a beautiful courtyard. This is particularly recommended in the winter months when it is not quite as warm in Dubai. If you want to book half board with dinner you can choose from six different restaurants. There is Indian cuisine, Italian cuisine and we recommend the Iris Bar on the 27th floor of the hotel. There is a roof terrace where you have a sensational view of the surrounding skyscrapers. From there you can also see the tallest building in the world.
The nice thing about this city hotel is that there is a very large outdoor pool. As a rule, city hotels have very small pools. But there you have an oversized pool and the children will certainly be delighted. There are enough places where you can find shade. Furthermore, there are also sufficient bath towels and these are regularly removed as soon as a hotel guest leaves the lounger. Then you get free and cool water at the pool. There are also plenty of changing rooms, toilets, and showers. So you can easily stay there for a few hours. However, there is no children’s pool and adults and children have to share it.
If you want to treat yourself to a massage, this is possible at The Oberoi Spa. There are several rooms there and these are up-to-date. For example, yoga courses are also offered there that you can take advantage of as a hotel guest. Then there is a fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment that you can use. In this area, the hotel is very well presented and can easily compete with a beach hotel.
As a hotel guest, you can also use the free wireless internet access at The Oberoi Dubai. You only have to enter the name and the room number there. Then all you have to do is connect to the hotel’s WiFi. This has high-speed internet access and is possible for the duration of the stay. This is even possible by the pool, so you can watch the latest news there or communicate with friends via social media.
The entrance to the hotel with flowers
As already mentioned, The Oberoi Dubai is located in Business Bay. Allow 20 to 25 minutes for the hotel transfer from Dubai International Airport. The tallest building in the world Bur Khalifa and the Dubai Mall are within sight and it is possible to get there on foot. But there is a free shuttle service to the Dubai Mall that you can use. So you don’t necessarily have to walk there. From there you can reach the most famous sights in the city.
