Friendly and quiet
My sister and I enjoyed the stay tremendously. The staff is so helpful and friendly! They remember your name and what you have for breakfast. They changed our room into better one to accommodate for our needs. The pool water was sparkling clean, the Caesar salad at the roof cafe was to die for. The hotel, despite of its size, gives a homey feeling. The area is surrounded by buildings, but a local supermarket, apothecary and shopping mall is very near. It is also close to the water and Gold Souk only 15-20 mins walk. The only minus was cleanliness of the gym and it’s equipment. Very well equipped, but the floor and everything we touched there felt a bit sticky. That is too bad since the rest of the hotel was very clean and the room was spotless...It is 10 mins from the airport by taxi- don’t pay more than 20 UEH! We will definitely come back at the next trip to Dubai. Simply loved it!

Late check-in, found non-smoking room reserved to have strong cigarette smell. Front Desk Attendant quickly directed my move to another room. Quick and painless check-in. In-room dining food is very good; although a bit expensive. Housekeeper for the floor I was in was always ready to assist with any assistance or cleaning service required. Been to this hotel many times before. Location is in proximity to Metro as well as many eating establishments, stores and supermarkets. Definitely a hotel to be considered if visiting Dubai.

Comfortable Hotel Stay
A very comfortable stay. Room was spacious and clean. Everything was ok. There was no clock/alarm clock in the room which was unusual for a hotel room. Staff were helpful, especially guest relations manager Fatima, in getting me to my room at check in time when she saw me wandering in the lobby for long time and check in staff kept delaying my check in with the excuse that my room was not ready, even after official check in time. A complimentary fruit basket in the room during my stay was a nice gesture for that trouble. Since check in is the first encounter of the guest with the hotel, I think Fatima should have been the first contact at check in of the hotel, rather than the other reception staff.

Fair 4.0
A no no
Late arrival - after 2200. Check in was friendly enough but not that prompt. Some pleasant classic painting at the back of the lobby. Hall of fame on the wall including Venus Williams - are you sure? So many things to look but most of them would have been nicer out of sight. A questionable mix of old grandeur lost in an excess of plastic greens. Off to the bedroom. Oh. No. Remember, we checked in in the evening. Entering the room was like lowering oneself in a subterrean cavern. The room was a mix of navy and dark green. To make the cave theme complete, an horribly humid atmosphere. Besides that, everything in the room seems to be coming from a, fortunately, long gone era. However, to be fair, it all looked well kept and very clean. But it was dark, mind you. Too tired to ask to change rooms, the night was spent uncomfortably despite a rather comfy bed. All in all the best part of the stay was when we left the hotel.

I’m sure the Carlton is a wonderful place to stay. Sadly I was unable to enjoy it because my flights were cancelled I spoke to the hotel and they said they’d cancel the booking and refund me but Expedia would would have to do it. Numerous attempts to contact Expedia were unsuccessful. Maybe this review will reach somebody there. The Emirates flights were cancelled two weeks before travel. I have not seen the charges credited back to my account. I have more upcoming travel in the next 3 weeks booked through Expedia and have to change it all but cannot. How about somebody contacting me? Please?
