Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel - Dubai, UAE




We checked in at Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel for easter of 2011. It is a five star hotel in which the architectural design reflects the travels of the Arabic explorer, Ibn Battuta, around the world. 


The arc at the center of the hotel is bigger than the famous Arc de Triomphe of Paris, France. Across the hotel is the Ibn Battuta Mall. 



Upon arrival (valet parking is complementary) we went directly to the check in counter. I actually called the hotel prior to our arrival to inform them that we were going to check in early and requested for a non smoking room. I was given a confirmation number when I called so it made our check in faster.




We stayed in an executive room at the 8th floor. The rooms was beautifully decorated and paid particular attention to details like the light designs and the carpet. I love the neutral tones that were used. I also like the Nespresso machine at the minibar. The room also had a complete vanity set.

Our room was at the 8th floor. I noticed in the elevator, each floor had a country to represent They were also designed after the country.

Guests have complementary access to Oceana Beach Club located at The Palm, Juneirah (the man made island). There is a coaster which brings guests to the location.

Generally, the hotel was great (worth the money) but the location was a bit far from the center but there is a metro that connects it to other destinations in Dubai.

  1. What hotel do you recommend in Dubai for a family with kids for our 3 day stop over next month?

  2. If your budget permits, I would suggest Atlantis, The Palm because they have a waterpark, aquarium and beach access. Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel is also nice but no beach access but it's at a lower cost. I'm really sorry for the late reply. I hope this will be useful for your next visit in Dubai
