The hotel

There’s something seriously slick about Media One Hotel. It’s like they read all the guides to creating the ultimate urban retreat: find a tip-top location (this one’s in the heart of New Dubai), add another mirrored masterpiece to Dubai’s famed skyline, fill it with cosmopolitan city break essentials (Gym? Tick. Dining? Tick. Nightlife? Tick.) and zhoosh it up with accessories straight from a celebrity designer’s moodboard. Like a constant reminder of its cooler-than-cool location, your guest room looks out over the Arabian Gulf, Palm Jumeirah, or glittering Dubai skyline. And, for more eye-popping views, the tower’s dining and drinking hubs include Garden on 8, with on-trend refectory tables and big-screen TVs, and THE DEK on 8, a ‘bar-meets-lounge-meets-pool’ set up, where you can slink from your swim to a poolside sofa for skyline views, cocktails, and chillout beats.

This is my second stay at the Media One Hotel, I love the funky style and relaxed atmosphere. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The location is great as it is just a 5 minute walk to the Metro which take you in to Dubai central quickly.

Very efficient friendly service, ticked all the boxes for me personally, location in the heart of Media City, excellent airport transfer service, accommodated early arrival. check out was flawless. Food in Qwerty was on the mark, plus the Japanese restaurant on level 9, was great for food and meeting people in its warm and friendly atmosphere.

The best hotel I have ever been to. Suggested to all my friends who are supposed to visit Dubai in a near future. the staff was excellent, breakfast we had was delicious. We also enjoyed a New Year Eve we celebrated in the club of the hotel. A pool and a lounge bar we enjoyed sitting in during the night hours. Finally, recommendation to everyone.

Good hotel to spend the end of the year with your family, having a good quality price ratio. Media One is close to the external subway to reach the main tourist attractions. Young staff always available to satisfy every request.
