Hotel is big, it has 40 floors. Wi-fi in the room, you had to pay, which in the 'internet city' is a bit odd. In the café in the 40. floor there is free wi-fi (hint: we are in the café surfing and then the wi-fi in our room also free works). …  read hotel review

Gloria Hotel is rated as a 4-star hotel and it has the looks from outside, boasting of over 40 floors and about 1000 rooms so we were excited at the prospect of staying there for the final leg of our vacation. The hotel was generally clean and most of the staff were courteous and we met people from a wide range of nationalities and ages. Being around a festive season there were also a lot of families. The food was also very good as they served full english breakfast and they had varieties to choose from. They also had a ... kids club that had an assortment of games for children (mostly younger children) and so my kids spent a lot of time there and they had fun. In general if you are traveling as a family it will be enjoyable but my greatest draw back was the rooms and the facilities they had, for a 4 star hotel and the price they offered i expected more hence my overall rating. read hotel review

    This is were we had the most complaints, the rooms seem rather old though maintained but the lacked a lot of modern or contemporary facilities. Compared with other 4-start hotels (we had stayed in before coming to the Gloria hotel) the lights are still manually controlled, one of the rooms didn't have its own Air Conditioning unit control so you had to go to the parlour to regulate the temperature of the room. We booked in a 2 bedroom Apartment with Kitchen facilities and they placed us in a room that had no burner and was a smoking room even though we had indicated that we had very young kids. After changing the room the other room they took us to was no smoking and had a kitchen but it had no other cooking accessories (plates, spoons, cups or pots), hence we had to call for everything we needed. The Bath tubs were rather small as though designed with just children in mind, the extractor was so noisy that if you were a light sleeper like my wife you would have a hard time sleeping (and unfortunately you couldn't turn it off cos it uses the same switch as the Air conditioner). The bed also is noisy so even though the room was big but we hardly got to enjoy it. The TV doesn't belong to this day and age and truthfully we have seen better and would rate this a 3 star hotel by any other standard

  • Location
    5.0

    The hotel is located at Dubai Internet City, a rather high brow area, so not a lot of places you can easily eat out but it is very close to the Metro station(say 1 min walk) and hence it was easy to get around to most places. They also offer free bus rides to the beach, say about 10 mins drive. The mall of the emirates is about 5mins by metro from the hotel so you could get your fill of what ever else you cannot find in the immediate surrounding

  • Gastronomy
    4.0

    The hotel boast a number of different restaurants that you can contact directly for like the noodle house, a sports bar and a few others. The dinning areas are really very clean. The room service is also able to provide both traditional and western cuisine Although in this category the major set back they have is the size of the restaurant they use for breakfasts. On a number of occasions there were long queues of guests having to wait to be assigned tables and that wasn't very nice especially if you have children that made the wait a bit more stressful.

  • Service
    5.0

    The Staff made the stay a little more pleasant, they were polite and always willing to help, and on hand to assist no matter the time you call or how simple the complain seemed.

Excellent Service, very good location near metro station, all Dubais points of interest can be easily reached by metro or taxi. Food is also excellent. You have in the hotel everything you need: many restaurants, supermarket, souvenir shop, lounge at 40th floor, cafe with shisha and all for good prices for a 4star hotel in an expensive city like Dubai. We booked in a suite with sea view for about 200Euro more than with street view (for one week) and it was definitely a very good choice for the money. Recommendation for attractions nearby(ask in the hotel about best way ... to get there): Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR), Dubai Marina Walk, Jumeirah Village, Burj el Arab. read hotel review

Unfortunately the first room that I was allocated was not clean. It has been given a basic clean but there was a lot of dust and other dirt. Saying that when I complained, I was moved to another room that was very clean, and guest relations even called a few hours later to check that everything was still okay. The size of the sitting room and bedroom was great - very spacious. Although there was a small kitchen there was no cooker, only a microwave and fridge/freezer (but perfectly adequate for me). Be aware that this is a dry hotel ... (no alcohol) but that was no issue for me. read hotel review

Unfortunately a bad experience even though we asked for a nonsmoking room 4 months in advance there was none available in the room the safe was missing my wife hurt herself when sitting on a chair whete a screw from an amateur repair came out and punctured her trousers and leg. The staff was not accepting any of those issues as a real claim we will definitely not go to this hotel again. Have i mentioned that the sofa in the living room was taped several times to keep the fabric in place or that the door to the balcony ... could not be opened first? I could go on like this but just like to forget this experience. read hotel review
