    We stayed in this hotel from the 31st of December until 9th of January, everything was ok, check in was very fast, the bed in the room was super, king size and very comfortable. Carlos working in the restaurant was very helpful and nice. It is very easy to go to City Center from the hotel. We will come back next time again. Thank you.

    Poor hotel

    Took over half an hour to check-in, even though it was 2 am and NOT busy (at all). Bathroom sink stopper was stuck on the CLOSED position; bidet fossit fell apart THE SECOND I touched it. No bathrobes, slippers, etc. There's complementary tea and coffee sachets in the room, but no water kettle to prepare them!

    Overall good value for the price but the hotel is a bit on the older side & we had some minor cleanliness issues with the room. Also the breakfast was pretty mediocre compared to our stays in other Dubai hotels. Staff were nice & friendly.

    This was our second time staying at Grand Excelsior. We stayed here four years ago for our honeymoon before so decided to book the same hotel for our recent trip to Dubai. Overall, it's a nice hotel. rooms are nice but bathrooms can use some remodeling. We had some issues with our original room, but the staff (Princess at the front desk) took care of it and upgraded us to a better room. Great staff and very helpful...Nasir, Adnan, Tokir and Princess to name a few. Breakfast is included with your stay, but I wish there were more options
