Media One Hotel

Dubai City, Middle East

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 Coco Lounge, 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.

One of the best hotels in Dubai. Its very clean, good location. Nice service, happy environment and good vibes. The food is nice, you can also enjoy the night life without going out of the hotel. I would highly recommend it!

Advantages: Great Open air restaurant area and good meeting rooms. Clean. Unique preparation for Christmas-all lobby area is full of funny personages. Party place. Disadvantages: Dirty windows (was informed by the manager that there was a rain and they couldn’t managed to make it clear in a short period of time). Party place, quite noisy. Additional advantages: This is a second review as after the first one got a fast message from the manager that they are accepting the problems and thankful for the comments, will do their best to make it better for me and other customers-an additional star to their fast response and readiness to make things better!

I liked this place, modern, although seems a few years older style. Restaurants have good food. Not fancy but informal. Would have been nice if the pool was open later, closing at 7 already. Personnel were very friendly.

Things to do in Dubai. One must visit and look at their lobby with such an amazing festive decoration. Very creative mind behind it, kudos to their marketing team. Very professional, helpful and polite staff. Met one of their Front of House Manager Zakiy Shaikh, who shows us around. From fine dining restaurant to crazy clubs they have it all!!!

We have been going here for a number of years - it has excellent customer service, great bars and restaurants, lots of facilities and is in a very good location, and only ten minutes from a metro station.
