VIDA Downtown Dubai

Dubai City, Dubai Beaches and beyond

The hotel

Bold, urban styling and a fabulous Downtown Dubai location ensure a stylish stay at Vida Downtown Dubai. Comfort, however, is still the name of the game and, of course seamless service – both of which make this 4-star boutique hotel feel more like a 5-star. And then there’s the swimming pool – grab a towel, head outside and bag yourself a lounger – the sun deck is gorgeous – the perfect place to soak up those rays. There are restaurants galore on your doorstep along with a good few sophisticated bars but Vida Downtown Dubai is home to 3in1 - a contemporary delight serving Mediterranean cuisine. The hotels location is perfect for guests on stopovers as it is in Downtown Dubai with lots of shopping, restaurants and the Burj Khalifa.

I’m a BIG fan of this place so wanted to share about their ‘stage 2 Happy Hour’ they do everyday from 5pm-8pm (Ramadan 7pm-10pm). The service never, ever fails - it is always immaculate, friendly and punctual. A special mention to Raj who is just so professional and always makes us feel welcome and valued, he genuinely cares about his customers… Read more
I’m a BIG fan of this place so wanted to share about their ‘stage 2 Happy Hour’ they do everyday from 5pm-8pm (Ramadan 7pm-10pm). The service never, ever fails - it is always immaculate, friendly and punctual. A special mention to Raj who is just so professional and always makes us feel welcome and valued, he genuinely cares about his customers which is why we keep coming back. The atmosphere here is super relaxed and feels like a peaceful haven after a long working day. In the evenings, if you sit on the balcony, you can enjoy the music from their pool area downstairs, which is always cool and creates more of a lounge vibe - it’s not too loud, more background music so it’s just right. Great place, have been coming here for at least a year now and is my secret (not now I’ve told you) urban retreat. I highly recommend it to anyone, whether it’s just for drinks or for food (they have a really nice diverse menu - grilled salmon salad is amazing!). It has something for all who want to just take a breath, relax and enjoy a chilled evening. Read less

The Vida Downtown is my hotel in Dubai. I do appreciate the early check-in, very important for me. Perfect location, always a nice scent all around. Confortante room and perfect spaces for business meetings or relax.

I always look forward to be back at Vida Hotel Downtown because of its boutique feel . I love Le Serre the french fusion restaurant. Perfect setting and consistent food served. However, service in Vida is lacking. The Bed was too soft and pillow too, had a bad back ache this round. Comparing it with The Address which I stayed a week ago, its a mere price difference but definitely service is far from near. Its changed quite a bit from a few years ago, even the smell of the bath gel has changed;} Read less
