Lonely Planet review

Built in the shape of a pyramid, Raffles is a stylish hotspot with magnificent oversized rooms (with balconies) blending Asian and Middle Eastern design accents and bathrooms dressed in natural Egyptian stone and boasting whirlpool tubs and walk-in showers. Zeitgeist-capturing in-room touches include Lavazza espresso machines, lighting controlled from a bedside console, iPod docking stations and free superfast wi-fi.

Our independent authors have visited Raffles Dubai and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Bur Dubai.
