I liked its proximity to the Dubai International Airport. It's ideal for extended layovers. It's not too far from the Dubai Mall, and for those who don't want to take the taxi to the mall, the Reef Mall is right behind this hotel. There are a few restaurant options in the area, too. But either way, you can get anywhere quickly and cheaply in Dubai via taxi. The staff has been really kind both times I've passed through and stayed at the hotel. Its simple, for sure - nothing fancy and not a place for romance or families, necessarily - but a convenient spot for travelers.
A stay at Dream Palace Hotel places you in the heart of Dubai, within a 15-minute drive of Sahara Centre and Dubai Mall. Featured amenities include a business center, express check-out, and complimentary newspapers in the lobby. Event facilities at this hotel consist of a conference center and a meeting room. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
