Stayed at the obelisk from 8th to the 14 of January and loved every aspect of our stay. Breakfast was great, staff was very helpful, doormen were excellent, concierge was knowledgeable, housekeeping is the best( shout out to Mohammed and Nissier?) This is my second stay in less than 2 years and I just can’t go to another hotel. Sofitel the obelisk is truly a 5Star hotel providing value at an excellent price!

Returning for the 3rd time says something and I had another wonderful stay here with my family. Rooms are spacious and were kept spotless throughout. We all felt very comfortable throughout the premises and especially in the pool area where Roderick manages operations like clockwork. Only minor lapses in lounge services which I can live with. I will continue coming back here.

disappointing

Customer review rating 2.5/5

Kika Families - 17/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is apparently new but some things in the bathrooms were already worn off and nobody cared to fix it. The fitness room did not allow kids below 16 to use the equipment, even if accompanied by the parent. This was the first time that the hotel had such restrictions and there were no info about it on the webpage. Also the opening of the swimming pool was depending on the weather. This should be somewhere mentioned on the hotel webpage that swimming pool may be temporarily closed, as windy weather is rather normal in January in Dubai. we booked options with breakfast. Some food like omelets or fried eggs were simply cold (as kept on the counter without heating options). I saw that previous customers already complained about it, but nothing was done with it. The reply of the staff that food is cold was throwing away the cold food. Hotel is noisy from the street, so not for light sleepers. and location also not the best,. as not much around the hotel.

Hasna A. Families - 16/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

The stay was perfect regarding the accommodation, house keeping service. I would like to thank the restaurant staff in the 2nd floor Almas, Kanchana. The breakfast experience in the 2nd floor was amazing in all matters. The club millesime staff Novi was very helpful to solve my issue in the first day when I forgot my carry-on luggage in the airport taxi. The Concierge staff in the ground floor Friday 7 January 2022 were so unhelpful when I request to find the taxi plate number through the security cameras. I was contacting them frequently for more than 5 hours to find the taxi plate number. I explained to them that all my medications in that piece of luggage. They were unhelpful in all meanings. After waiting without any response from Conceirge I asked Novi in the club millesime to help me & she found the taxi plate number in 15 minutes & RTA was contacted and I received my luggage in less than an hour. I’m very thankful for all the housekeeping staff, the pool staff, the 2nd floor restaurant staff, lobby boys for welcoming my family every day and night.

G A. Families - 10/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

We really enjoyed our stay and found the hotel and its staff works hard and wholly deserves its 5 star rating. Hotel staff were very professional, yet welcoming and very accommodating. Our request for an early check in was made possible and gratefully received by a tired family! We found that the hotel ran like a well oiled machine! Room was clean and spacious. Bed was a pleasure to sleep in, one of the best hotels we have ever slept in. Hotel breakfast was excellent- amazing variety, catering for everyone and anyone’s taste, perfectly presented and cooked. Outside pool area was very good, we enjoyed the little extra touches such as complementary ice lollies and fruit salad that were given out around the pool side. The gym was also good. A little disappointing that our teenage daughter was turned away from using a simple treadmill under parental supervision. First time in Dubai and we found the location a little lacking but the hotel itself made up for that and we’d love to return. We only ate in Taiko. The food was delicious but unfortunately the service was very slow, food took an hour to arrive and starters didn’t ever arrive. The manageress however did apologise and offered dessert as an apology. We felt the restaurant didn’t offer value for money. We had room service on our first night and found the food well prepared and good value for money and much more suitable for children. We would highly recommend this hotel and very much hope to return

This hotel is a home away from home, every thing is more than perfect, from the friendly and professional employees, to the comfort of the rooms and the variety of foods in the restaurant. This stay was really very special as the staffs at the front desk strived to give me a magnificent 3 bedroom apartment with a direct view to Burj Khalifa where we were able to enjoy the fireworks. I would like really to thank everyone at the reception. Definitely, when we are in Dubai, sofitel the Oblisk is our choice

Hv Families - 06/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Extremely comfortable beds, great size luxury room for myself, wife and 2 children. View of downtown was spectacular. Bathroom spacious too. All amenities were great and kids club was very beneficial for my 4 y/o Breakfast spread was fantastic. Club lounge was excellent, barring one staff member who was rude. Generally staff were extremely polite, friendly, welcoming and helpful. One staff member at reception on an anomalous occasion was rude, but did not spoil the stay. Will definitely be staying at this hotel again! Shout out to Chef Russel who met me at checkin time to go through the allergies of my children and accommodate them with customised items for breakfast, very caring and thorough. Thanks to chef Russell and Indika and team. Davron and Ghehre at concierge were also brilliant!

This is my third time at obelisk, the staff were amazing as always. From the warm welcome by Jhoy and Novi at the club Millesime, the suite upgrade by Haifa and late check out arrangement by Amoun, the breakfast crew Vishnu, Rachelle and the day team of Daria, Charm providing excellent attention and service throughout our stay. thank you! Second time to Taiko… for the month of December they have evening happy hour for club millesime guests, Don’s divine cocktails and yummy selection of treats from the taiko food menu were most impressive. Ended up having dinner with my colleagues after happy hour. We had the tasting menu which was beautifully presented and the experience was as pleasant as the previous time for me. The staff were amazing and the DJ was pumping out catchy mixes in the background. We had a really good time. Special thanks to Thazin and Naged for taking good care of us! Rooms were spacious and clean.

We love staying at The Obelisk Dubai.... although the prices have doubled since last year so we stay for shorter periods! Due to being ALL Diamond helps with access to Exec Floor and free breakfasts on weekends. The staff are always friendly especially William behind the bar along with Butlers Vishnu & Ramish Exec Floor Manager Rachelle and also Charm. At the pool Bishna was always helpful throughout every day we spent poolside along with the pool manager Mahmoud. Looking forward to returning between Xmas & New Year along with our Granddaughters and enjoying the comforts of our suite.

Although this hotel is new, the staff are excellent and appear to have worked together for years. The executive lounge is very good, with great views over Dubai with food and drinks to match. We were booked in by Daria who explained the hotel perfectly and made sure we were able to take part in afternoon tea that was about to end. William also in the lounge was excellent and made our stay at the Obelisk a memorable one. Our room was large and had a good view over Dubai Creek. Breakfast in the main restaurant was busy however the offering was extensive of great quality with no shortages. Despite the size of the hotel all the staff were able to meet customers needs without any issues. The pool area is good with a great team that supply the towels and umbrellas with an availability of beds all day. Although we have stayed in Dubai many times, this was our first visit to this hotel and as a result of the quality and staff will return in the future.
