This Sofitel is relatively new, we know - we watched it being built down the road from our home. We were excited to try it out and it is as impressive as it looks on the outside. It is stands out from other hotels in Dubai with its individual French Polynesian style. The staff are wonderfully welcoming and always have smiles. And the layout of the hotel is fantastic for everyone, from a family with children, to a couple wanting privacy, to groups travelling together; the hotel rooms and villas are set out in clusters giving you the amount of privacy or exposure that you require as a holiday maker...we really liked that about the hotel!
Our only complaint would be the condition of the rooms for such a new hotel. We understand this has more to do with the treatment by other hotel patrons than the standard of the hotel - it is easy to see, people do not care or respect property when it is not their own. Nevertheless, it was a little disappointing that the upholstery items such as sofas and seat cushions were stained and dirty.
Overall though, a very nice experience.

The staff couldn't do anything more for me. When I booked, the room wasn't due to be ready until 3pm, however, I turned up at 8am and although there was no room (as they were fully booked) i was able to use all facilities.

From the minute we entered the hotel we were treated very well, every single one of our needs was met. We stayed in the suite and it was lovely clean and spacious. We never had to lift a finger even on the beach or by the pool. The spa was amazing too, overall a relaxing and VIP feel to the whole holiday.

Just returned from a 5 night stay, arrived early morning & room was ready which was a bonus after travelling through the night. Just across road from metro making it ideal location for getting around. 1 metro stop from Mall Of Emirates. Staff friendly & answered any questions I had. Pool in the shade all the time although the hotel states that this is designed like this on purpose due to the heat. Free internet and computer access which was handy for printing boarding passes. Lots of staff, hotel clean, Bathroom lovely, bath towels big & fluffy! Booked superior room - slightly small for 3. Camp bed was provided as 3rd bed for teenage son. Not an awful lot of wardrobe space or drawers for storage. Fridge, free safe, bottled water provided daily. Unfortunately our room was on the back of hotel so no view of Burj but it was quiet & room view was lovely we were on floor 22 & never had to wait long for a lift. Happy with our choice and would return.

The Ibis is located an easy walking distance to the Mall of the Emirates, which also has a Metro stop. The Metro is an easy and efficient way to get around Dubai.
Our room was very clean and comfortable. The lobby area has a bar and a cafe/restaurant. The Ibis is connected to the Novotel next door, so one can also access the Novotel restaurant. The reception staff asked if we were interested in some tours. We did book two tours - a half day city sightseeing tour and the evening desert safari tour - both of which were excellent and good value.
The Mall of the Emirates is an amazing shopping and entertainment centre and it's hard not to get lost once one is inside!

We are a couple travelling. Security is very important. ibis fits the plan bcoz its jz 15 minutes away from airport. Since we are using Dubai big bus tours, we need to stay near it. The big bus tour starts from Deira city centre at 930am for the red line. And Deira city centre is jz opposite the hotel. Going back to airport, u can either get a taxi arrange by hotel which cost around 35dirham or jz flag a taxi along the street which cost around 10dirham. I only took taxis from Dubai Taxi Corporation (red top, cream body).
The hotel room has hair dryer, coffee making machine and enuf space to put luggages.
