Unbeatable location and service.

Posted 14-Apr-2014
Had a wonderful time in Dubai, and part of that is due to the superb location and service we received at Sofitel JBR. Probably the best hotel I've ever stayed in – walkable location (which is rare in Dubai), impeccably clean, tastefully decorated, and incredibly attentive staff. Reasonably priced, especially considering how costly Dubai is. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat!

Good for vacation

Posted 12-Apr-2014
Pros: Great location for vacation. Few steps to the beach.
Cons: Rooms should be larger and smell (maybe rose) in the room should be taken care of. Men's SPA must be modernized and improved.
Location: Location is in the middle of all attractions for summer season. Beach is a few steps away.
I was in Dubai for business. Sofitel is not th best location for business but vacation. Building became old and room was too small.

Great for couples/friends holidays

Posted 05-Apr-2014
Pros: Very good overall.
Cons: The balcony doors could do with a bit of maintenance as they were difficult to open & you could easily get locked outside! Extra staff at the pool.
Location: Good central location. Shops, restaurants, beach & marina a short walk.
We were very pleased with the overall experience. Our room was bigger than expected & great shower facility plus bath & bidet etc. The room servicing was faultless as were the staff in general. It's more understated than some of the other hotels but we saw this as a positive as too many are over the top. The location is good & taxis are readily available & inexpensive. The breakfast choice was fantastic. This hotel is mainly suited for couples, friends & business travellers as there's no separate children's pool or facilities for children. The gym, spa & hairdressing salon were of a high standard. Would recommend.

We enjoyed 3 nights of luxury after 6 weeks backpacking in South America. Would absolutely recommend, the staff were amazing and very helpful. A special thanks to the Doormen for all their help.

Amazing hotel/staff/location

Posted 01-Apr-2014
Cannot recommend this hotel enough & Dubai in general. We arrived at the hotel 9am & not only did they allow us to check in early but they also upgraded our room when they realised it was our wedding anniversary. Can't wait to go back

Luxury hotel in great beachside location

Posted 29-Mar-2014
Pros: Close walk to Jumeirah beach. Friendly helpful staff. 5 star quality bathroom and bed. Attractive infinity pool. Irish Pub style bar.
Cons: Pool lounger area cramped. Narrow access into hotel room due to wardrobe doors. Would be better with sliding doors.
Location: Excellent location at southern end of Jumeirah beach on the "Walk". Lots of choice of restaurants nearby. Long ride to creek and Burj Khalifa.
Very comfortable luxury hotel within yards of excellent Jumeirah beach. Impressed by efficient airport transfer by Alpha tours. Arrived at 9 am but reception staff were happy for us to leave luggage with concierge while we went for breakfast and then checked in early at 10am. Excellent for the early morning flight arrivals. Comfortable room of fair size with view of sea. Nicely equipped bathroom. Extremely comfortable huge bed. Free WiFi throughout hotel is extremely useful although signal dropped near pool. Without exception we found all the staff very friendly and helpful. We only had light snacks in the hotel, which were well presented and fair size. We had excellent value breakfasts in one of the numerous restaurants nearby. Beautiful infinity pool on third floor. Fairly limited loungers available but pool staff seem quite good at removing towels from unused beds to free up space. Previous construction work in front of hotel has thankfully finished so you can walk directly across the road to the lovely beach. A cluster of bars and restaurants are just about to open on the beach front. Plenty of choice of eating places on "The Walk". The road at the back of the hotel facing the marina is in the middle of major construction work for a new rail link. Dont let it put you off but just accept you can't walk to the metro or marina easily at moment. Over all a good choice for a luxury Dubai hotel.

Almost ideal

Posted 26-Mar-2014
The Sofitel is a very good example of a standard 5 star modern hotel. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and excellent location. It's 2 mins from the beach. Right in the middle of the "walk" which is a pedestrianised area of shops and restaurants. The only draw back is that the local wide boys seem to have chosen the walk to drive their ferraris up and down all night blasting their exhausts which gets a little annoying if you are trying to sleep.
