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.

The hotel is well situated because you’re not far from Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall.The rooms are well organised,the restaurant is well designed and the hotel has very experienced staff members.Ms Josephine and one lady at the reception are,I think,the best of them!

I stayed with a friend at the Vida downtown for 6 nights. Check in was smooth with Lee at reception who was really smiley and welcoming. She gave us a discount card which came in really handy for buying food and drinks at the hotel which can be really expensive in Dubai. The hotel is a 4 start but feels like 5, the lobby, room and all amenities were spotless. The room was nice and spacious and had all the necessities you would expect, bathrobes, towels, toiletries, slippers, iron, hair dryer, tea/coffee making facilities, mini bar empty which i prefer as there is more room for your own drinks etc..tv available - didn't check the local channels as only used youtube and netflix, bed was really comfortable but pillows were a bit too soft for our liking. Although we loved the room there was one small criticism and that's that water leaks out of the shower onto the bathroom floor, a small problem which could be fixed by adding some sort raised strip at the bottom to keep the water in. The food at the hotel restaurant was lovely, we ordered from the a la carte menu and everything we had was of a good standard. The location was excellent as it was only about a 10 minute walk to the Dubai mall and fountain, plus it is just off sheikh zayed boulevard which is full of restaurants and cafes. I'd like to thank the manager for acknowledging my friends birthday with a nice little surprise in the room and also shout out to Mamie at reception who was so friendly and helpful, we loved talking to you at the end of an eventful day :). I would not hesitate to stay here again. Read less
