Sofitel Dubai Downtown is a super stylish hotel which is great for both business travellers and holidaymakers. With three of Dubai’s top attractions – Burj Khalifa, Dubai Fountain and Dubai Mall – on its doorstep, and a location only 20 minutes from Dubai airport, it makes a perfect stopover hotel. It’s also only a few minutes from the business district of DIFC and the convention centre.
The Sofitel’s rooms are contemporary and funky with swirling patterned carpets and soft tones interrupted by splashes of vivid lime greens or, in the best suites, deep purples and reds. All rooms have free wifi, Nespresso machines, Bose Wave sound systems, and LED high-definition TVs.
The luxurious black-tiled bathrooms come with separate shower and bath tub, generous supplies of toiletries, and plush robes. Rooms have a spacious wardrobe/dressing area with full-length mirror.
Buffet breakfast is served in Les Cuisines, one of Sofitel’s chic restaurants. It offers a wide range of hot and cold options and friendly, prompt service. Alongside all the usual buffet breakfast fare there are great healthy options like detox juice shots, soya milk, gojji berries, nuts and smoothies. There’s even a made-to-order falafel station.
The hotel’s infinity pool overlooks the towers of Downtown Dubai and makes for a very relaxing spot pre- or post- exploring.
