Where to Stay: Dubai City

Crowne Plaza Dubai


Located on Sheikh Zayed road, the Crowne Plaza is situated in the heart of the city’s business district, a fantastic base point for exploring the rest of Dubai. The nearest metro station –World Trade Centre Metro- is just over the road, allowing you to travel further afield with the upmost ease.


We stayed on one of the higher floors of the hotel, something we can’t recommend enough as the view of the city is incredible. We chose a King Bed Studio that had a fantastic amount of space, with an open plan kitchenette and comfortable lounge. The décor was lovely, with some traditional Middle Eastern design combined with the usual modern amenities, such as coffee/tea making facilities, WIFI and a television. The bathroom was also very spacious, stocked with plenty of complimentary toiletries, plus extremely plush bathrobes and slippers!


The hotel boasts a total of 12 restaurants, with an excellent range of cuisine; there are a few internationally recognisable brands, such as Wagamama and a Harvester Pub plus more local fare such as Al Tannour. As we arrived at the hotel late at night, we also made use of the 24 hour room service available, which has an excellent selection of food. We both tried the ‘Arabic pocket’, a delicious pitta bursting with chicken and vegetables; we wouldn’t usually get so enthusiastic about room service food, but that which the Crowne Plaza offered was so good we just had to recommend! A buffet breakfast is available to guests, which made use of during our stay; there is a great mix of local and international food so you are sure to find something to suit your morning taste, wherever you are from.


The hotel also has a variety places to have a drink in the evening, with a number of bars and a nightclub in the building. ‘Zinc’ is a well-known party venue in Dubai, open to both guests and non guest which ensures a lively atmosphere every night. As is standard in Dubai, all visitors must be at least 21 to enter the club.


And to work off all the food and drink, guests can make use of the 24 hour gym on site, which also includes a steam room and sauna. The hotel also has a good-sized outdoor pool and a spa, both of which are open until 10pm.


We must also highly commend the service at the Crowne Plaza, as every staff member we came across during our stay was helpful and friendly. Check-in and out was efficient and reception staff were great at answering our questions regarding directions for the local area. We definitely would return to the Crowne Plaza Dubai, thanks to its great location
