We booked into the Country Club hotel, Dubai because we initially thought it was right next to the airport. As we were only staying one night before our early flight the next morning it was going to be a suitable hotel. It wasn’t located quite where we thought, but turned out to only a 15 minute drive by taxi at that time of the morning.
This hotel had it all – a hair salon, wellness spa, restaurants, café, sports bar and even a night club. All that was missing was a supermarket!
The rooms were spacious, comfortable, a little old school and a step up from some of the budget accommodation we were used to. It had all the standard freebies of a hotel this size as well as the typical services you would expect.
The rooftop pool was great and a perfect way to spend our last day in the heat before we hit Europe. We were looking forward to a restful sleep and I had a good one in the very comfortable, large bed. Chris, however, had a shocker as the music and vibrations from the bars below was so loud and intense even some of the glasses were rattling. If you are a light sleeper this hotel isn’t for you!
Positives: If you just need accommodation during transfers, this is ideal as you have everything you need and don’t have to step out of the hotel. There is a bank and convenience store nearby if you require anything else. The staff are friendly and happy to assist with arrange your transport as well as helping with baggage.
Negatives: Having so many venues within a small hotel means there is a lot of noise!
Kid Friendly: The rooms are spacious and comfortable for a family. While there are many restaurants within the hotel, only the café has a menu suitable for children.
