This must be the most beautiful view i've ever had from my hotel room...
Reviewed 3 hours ago

Ok yes, having an excellent view isn't everything, but in this case the rest of the hotel definitely didn't give me any reason to complain...seriously, i need to scratch my head to find a gripe about staying at the Shangri-La. But let me get into some details....

Right of the bat let me say...this is NOT budget accommodation, but i still managed to find an affordable deal on one of the online booking sites.

The room was looked fantastic...did i mention the view?...LOL...ofcourse i did. We stayed on the 32nd floor and the view over the city was fantastic. Dubai in itself is a stunning city, but to view it from the 32nd floor just makes the experience so much more magical. If you have a chance, also go to the viewing deck on the 42 floor (only open on certain times)...the high and view literally took my breath away for a second or two...especially at night when the whole city center looks like it's glowing.
The bathroom, mini-bar and furnishings in the room was very comfortable, everything very neat and clean.
Staff - here I need to give the Shangri-La a big compliment...on two occasions the staff were super helpful in assisting me and i was super impressed.
Food - we didn't eat at the Shangri-La, so can't comment. The location of the hotel is also perfect, only a couple of minutes walk from the nearest metro station, and there's a shuttle the runs from the hotel to various locations in the city all day.
I've been fortunate enough to stay in 4/5 star hotels in London and Cape Town, but in my book the stay at the Shangri-La was one of the best so far!!

Comfortable surrounds, attentive staff

I like the Shangri-La Dubai. The pool has great views of Burj Khalifa and a jacuzzi (or spa if you’re from Aus) with powerful jets. The gym was well equipped.

Room wise, I was informed on checkin that I had booked a different room type to what I was expecting. I was then told the room I did actually book was unavailable. All fine, we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite. Certainly happy with that, despite the inaccuracy.

The restaurant and bar staff, door people, pool and gym attendants all demonstrated excellent customer service.

The beds are comfortable and the fit out is unobjectionable. A great stay.
