Historical Traveller Reviews of Ibis World Trade Centre Hotel
A good value option in the Sheikh Zayed Road areafrom Middle_East_Explorer
Quality hotel well located for trade fairsfrom alanreynolds
The hotel with its sister Ibis hotel are integrated into the structure of the WTC convention building, and adjacent exhibition halls and would be a natural choice for trade fair exhibitors. The Fairmont is close by too. The Hotel is NOT a leisure hotel and the beaches are miles away. It is also on the opposite side of the Creek to most ministries and government bodies, and a 15 mins taxi ride (at least) to most. The Sheraton or Radisson on Deira side of the Creek might be better for that.
My room 506 was spacious, with two firm beds, and well laid out bathroom.
The ground floor restaurant had smoking and non-smoking areas. Used it twice and thought it good value, but did not have breakfast.
I have stayed this year in Novotels in Accra, Valencia, Krakow and this is definitely a further step up in quality in its furnishings, hall, dining and staff service.
The outdoor pool on ground floor but accessible from the first, was 15 m long and about 12 m wide. I used it at least once each day. Good changing facilities. One complaint is that although room literature said it was open at 0700, staff were still cleaning at 0700 and refused access until 0730 or 0745 - not good for a swim before work. Pool was in an inner courtyard and got sun 0900-1500. So limited use as sunbathing area.
The hotel had a business centre, including several Internet terminals. These were pricey, costing AED 6 (EUR 1.25) for 5 minutes. In the cyber shops in downtown Bur Dubai, all were offering 1 HOUR for AED 3. So I used the hotel for emergency use only.
Check in on arrival was very slow, and check out on departure was merely slow. On both occasions, I happened on a member of staff undergoing training.
This is a good comfortable hotel but be sure you want to be at the trade fair location.
Great for trade fairs in WTCfrom Maya_tr
Good Hotel for Business Travellerfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Overall a good middle of the road hotel - what you would expect from Novotel.
We arrived at the Hotel around 2.00 a.m., as we had booked and paid for this room some two months prior I expected a room to be ready and waiting for us. At 2.00 a.m. in the morning we had to wait for housekeeping to arrive to make-up the extra bed for my daughter - sorry I don't think that is good enough. At check-in I was asked if I wanted a smoking or non-smoking room - as we are non-smokers and I do have a slight allergy to smoke naturally I asked for a non-smoking room to be told they didn't have any! Why ask if they are not available. Told to come back down to reception in the morning and we would be given a non-smoking room. Next day, around 11.00 a.m. I asked for a non-smoking room to be told not available but to come back at 3.00 - which I did only to once again be told to come back at 5.00. At this point I asked if their definately was a room the reply being yes. At 5.00 once again I was told there wasn't a room, at this stage I was far from impressed and decided to mention my allergy - hey presto they found a room!!!!!
Besides that small problem, we did enjoy our stay at the Novotel, most of our time spent relaxing around the pool. The area well patroled by friendly staff.
We ate at the Hotel on several occassions and the buffet was enjoyable and after the UK very affordable.
Would I stay there again - depends on the purpose of my visit - if for a 24-48 hour stopover yes. If we were planning on a holiday I would go to the beach area, only because it would be more practical.
Good choicefrom ekek
The hotel is very clean and the staff friendly. We did not hesitate to ask them about any information and I should highlight that there were always a taxi waiting outside the hotel. Unfortunately the room servise does not accept creditcards so make sure you have cash if you want to order something after midnight. Regarding the decoration, the rooms were comfortable with good choise of furniture exactly as they look in the pictures on their web page. The bathroom was more than I was expecting, lots of towels to use. The plumbing fixtures were modern in style and clean. As for the restaurant, it was carefully decorated with stylish accessories.
Breakfast was various with many traditional dishes. We LOVED the omelette (the one you order the cook) you must try it!
Unfortunately for smokers there is no smoking area during breakfast hours.
So, to sum up, if you asked me, I would recomend this hotel to those that want to explore Dubai. I would stay there again in the future. I should underline here that I was happy to realise that air companies chose it for their staff to stay.
excellent choice for a brief stopoverfrom quickpen
The room was relatively small but spotless and comfortable. So was the bed.
The buffet breakfast was excellent - wide choice, there was something for everybody, whatever the background and breakfast habit - many fresh things too.
The Novotel seems to be a bit away from everything - not on the beach, not in the old city. For an extended holiday, people might be want to choose hotels that are are more conveniently located. But having said that, the Novotel also has a free shuttle service to Deira and to the beaches a few times per day.
For a one-day stopover, the Novotel was absolutely ideal - not too pricey, good service - excellent value for money.

A typical buseniss hotel.from Mulla
I was on a bed and breakfast basis, and I got it for approx US$ 145 per night inclusive of taxes. The room is small but clean with contemporary furniture. The bathroom has a bathtub, although it was pretty small. Bed-wise it was little hard and low. There was a TV but with bad channel selection.
The hotel is linked to the exhibition hall in Dubai World Trade Center through a walkway. I attended a couple of exhibitions that were running on the time I was there, could not resist the SPA exhibition!!
Location wise it’s far from all the shopping places, but the hotel provides a shuttle to Deiara City Center, Burjuman shopping center, Merkato shopping center and the beach. The shuttle service is complementary and is being shared by its sister property Ibis World Trade Center.
Breakfast was fine with good service, it was buffet style. My birthday coincided with my stay at the Novotel and I was presented with a cake celebrating this occasion. A nice touch.
s not badfrom Rani78
The check in at the hotel took time...and the staff is not that much friendly....you don't see much smiles and they are a bit slow in completing the check in formalities...
Speaking about the rooms...they are clean but beds are very small and low too!!! The beds should have been wider and higher to feel more comfortable. The cleanliness of the room is good and accepatable..however my pillowsheet had 2 stains on the other side,however all towels and other ameneites are very clean.
The toliet is considered clean...but it's a bit small...there's isn't that much luxury touches in the toilet...basic amenties are available...
There is one restaurant and one bar in the hotel...The restaurant serves buffet breakfast,Lunch and Dinner...The breakfast buffet is good..serving a wide selection of continental and american breakfast...but comparing with other hotels in Dubai...it should be better...cuz other hotels are servinga much richer breakfast wich much more selection
In General a good hotel...Would recommend for buisness but not for a Vacation.
Absolutely great!from Zara-Leeds
Top Local Tips for Dubai
Emirates Mall We went to Mall on a Friday night but it was extremely busy so try another day other than Friday
Shopping in Dubai The best time to shop in Dubai, and Abu Dhabi, is January when the "Shopping Festival" is on - basically it's what we call the post-holiday sales. Most stores offer 50% off or more and remember there's already no tax or duty! Oh the joys!! It's a dangerous paradise for anyone with a credit card and the will to shop till they drop! Another tip - the weather in January can be cool, so skip the pricey beachfront hotels and put the extra dirhams toward something fabulous - like dinner at a five star resort (highly recmmend Eauzone at the One and Only Mirage) or a new dress or another pair of stilettos or a pearl ring or ....
