CHECKING IN: HILTON GARDEN INN DUBAI AL MURAQABAT

CHECKING IN: HILTON GARDEN INN DUBAI AL MURAQABAT

This hotel review is long overdue. But I have to get the words out there for people who are planning to attend the Middle East Electricity Exhibit this March 2019 in Dubai. #MEE2019

Or even if you’re just a tourist looking for a hotel that would exceed your expectation.

We were in Dubai to attend the Middle East Electricty Exhibit last 2018 wherein manufacturers of electrical supplies and equipment from around the world flock to Dubai to showcase their world-class products.

I booked Hilton Garden Inn thru Hotels.com after reading the fabulous reviews with an average rating of 8.8/10. This 4-star hotel brand is part of the Hilton Group of Hotels. Located in Abu Baker Al Siddique Road, the hotel was conveniently located in Old Dubai. I knew I was going to love this hotel since part of our itinerary was to roam around Old Dubai and visit the colorful Spice & Gold Souk. Souk is the Arabic translation of ‘market’. The hotel is located along the road so it’s very easy to find, the parking, however, is located at the back of the hotel. It had a contemporary interior with a perfect touch of Arab design.

The Room

After a 9 hour drive from Saudi Arabia, the bed was a sight to behold. The 27 sqm King Room is bigger than most hotels in Dubai. It has a King-sized bed and sofa bed which was perfect for the three of us. Upon entering the room, a wide corridor leads to the modern bathroom, turn left and there’s the full body mirror, and finally the spacious room that’s equipped with everything to make guests feel at home such as wardrobe cabinet, iron, entertainment console, hairdryer, mini bar, table, and some refreshments ready for the guests.

Have I mentioned that the toiletries are by Peter Thomas Roth? As a girl who loves trying new beauty and skincare products, I was quite excited to try the toiletries most especially the body wash and hair products. Peter Thomas Roth is also available at Sephora. I heard some great reviews about their face masks!

“Not your ordinary 4* hotel”

THE FOOD

The hotel has one restaurant located in front of the reception area. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We invited some of our family friends who were residents of Dubai for dinner on our first night. We tried their dinner buffet which had a mix of American and Arab cuisine. I highly recommend including breakfast when booking at Hilton Garden Inn Dubai. Their soft melt-in-your-mouth waffle is a must-try! and definitely one of the bests I’ve had. There’s always a queue in the waffle station every morning so I made sure to have breakfast earlier than usual. Gotta get ’em first!

THE VERDICT

In case I find myself back in Dubai, Hilton Garden Inn Dubai Al Muraqabat will be on top of my choices given our excellent experience. I would also recommend this hotel without a doubt to families, friends, business travelers looking for a hotel with a convenient location, value for money, great food, and of course, excellent customer service. Our experience had me signed up for Hilton Honours Rewards Program. I’ll be looking for that waffle around the world!

    I am a member of the Hilton Honors Program so if I have a choice, I will always choose a Hilton hotel. I see that they have the same high quality standards at the Garden Inn in Dubai. I do like how modern the rooms are.

    This looks like a lovely place to stay. I know we go on holiday to see new places but you need somewhere nice to rest at the end of the day 🙂

    A vacation is long over due but not yet. This hotel room looks so cosy and the complementary toiletries are amazing. In fact, it seems like a spa treatment rather than just a room.

    This place looks amazing, thanks for sharing your experience. I’m going to share this with my husband as he travels to Dubai.

    Oh my gosh I would love to stay in any Hilton hotel, looking at the photos the hotel looks so lavish and grand. Unfortunately though I haven’t been even in front of a Hilton hotel.
