Lonely Planet review

Here’s a luxury hotel that lives up to the moniker. Built in the shape of a pyramid, Raffles is a high-octane hot spot with magnificent oversized rooms (with balconies) done in the colours of a Moroccan kilim – deep blue, burgundy red and sandy taupe. Bathrooms are of limestone and sandstone imported from Egypt, with giant sunken tubs and rainfall showerheads. Zeitgeist-capturing in-room touches include Lavazza espresso machines, lighting controlled from a bedside console, iPod docking stations and free wi-fi.

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