Had the best time at Waldorf Astoria celebrating our Honeymoon and my Birthday. This was our second visit to WA and this time we decided to upgrade to Lounge access, which was worth every penny. The staff really made us feel special and the hotel had everything you could ask for and was beautiful. Special thanks to the housekeeping staff, especially Pradeep, Utnoor and Nagarjun and the Lounge staff especially Emma and Mark, who treated us so well and made our stay extra special! Will definitely visit again. Read less

We arrived early hours of the morning 2.00am, we pre registered our suite from the night before, therefore we could have immediate access. Our suite had dark hair left on the walls of the shower, grape seeds on the arms of the sofa!! Just yuk!! Advised staff in the club lounge in the morning, honestly they were very helpful and tried to sort the situation out. This is something that should not have happened. The club lounge had great staff and we enjoyed it for a drink in the evening, a little crazy in the morning for breakfast!! The pool area is good, but has very slippery paving around the pool. We have stayed in many hotels in Dubai over the years and I can say I was a tad disappointed. Had the Indian Buffet one night and it was average, which I advised to staff on the night. Around $100 AUD per person, my daughter had a bowl of steamed rice!!???? In addition I got very sick whilst î was there and got reception to call in a doctor. Never received any follow up call to see if there was anything we needed??? Read less
