Historical Traveller Reviews of Ibis World Trade Centre Hotel

A good value option in the Sheikh Zayed Road area

from Middle_East_Explorer
This is a clean, modern, comfortable hotel in the Sheikh Zayed Road area of Dubai. Its best attributes are the interior design of both the lobby and rooms, and the large, heated swimming pool. The rooms are not large. I've stayed here several times, and the only complaint is that the front desk check-in and check-out is sometimes not very efficient, and the concierge not very knowledgeable about the city. Also, travelers should know that there is really no place to walk to from the hotel -- there are nearby hotels and restaurants that look close, but involve crossing an expressway or other obstacles.

Quality hotel well located for trade fairs

from alanreynolds
I stayed 4 nights at the Novotel WTC Sunday 12 to Thursday 16 November 2006. I chose it as an Accor frequent guest cardholder as it was offering good value at AED 616 (about EUR 130) compared with some Dubai hotels costing twice that. According to its website, the hotel was full but I got a room by telephoning,

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 WTC

from Maya_tr
I visit Dubai each year for a trade fair held in WTC Dubai. The hotel and the exibition center are at the same building. The rooms and the food are nice. Since Dubai is so hot most of the year, staying in this hotel and reaching trade fair without going out is a very good advantage. All services are available for business travellers and the visitors are mostly business travellers. The hotel will surely be my first choice for future business trips to Dubai.

Good Hotel for Business Traveller

from A TripAdvisor Member
Good centrally placed hotel, next to the conference centre. The pool is fine and the rooms are standard fare for a Novotel. The food in the restaurant is reasonably priced and of good quality. The bar has jazz on certian nights and can become quite lively. The shuttle buses they runs to the malls work very well.
Overall a good middle of the road hotel - what you would expect from Novotel.


from Spyro
My two adult children and I stayed in Dubai to thaw out and recover after 3 weeks in the UK during March.

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 choice

from ekek
Novotel is conveniently situated in the center of Dubai. The room's view of the two towers was amazing and the time we were staying there you could see the "tallest building in the world" developing.
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 stopover

from quickpen
I spent one day in Dubai on a stopover visit. My flight from Europe arrived at Dubai Airport just before 1am; my onwards flight left 26 hrs later at around 3am. The Novotel's free shuttlebus service between airport and hotel (and vice versa) was particularly convenient in my case. The check-in at 2am was swift and very courteous. When I mentioned that my plane was departing in the middle of the next night, I was given an extended check-out time until 5pm. This was hugely appreciated: it gave me a chance to catch up on sleep and rest some more during the day.
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
Stayed in the Novotel World Trade Center for 1 week late May.

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 bad

from Rani78
I stayed at Novotel for 2 night...The Hotel is located at the begining of Shk.Zayed Road ....one of the prestgious streets in Dubai which is very popular of restaurants and luxury hotels. The location of the hotel itself is very ideal for discovering Dubai.
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
I stayed at this hotel during my last visit in Dubai on 8th March 2006. I visited with my sister and we chose to stay at the Novotel since this was more of a shopping trip than lounging around on the beach. The day we arrived we checked in at 9.30 in the morning and our room was ready. We were pleasantly surprised when we first walked into the lobby area of the hotel. The bedroom was lovely, very modern and very clean. Also had complimentary tea and coffee facilities together with fresh bottled water every morning and evening. The breakfast buffet was very good, lots of variety. The staff were really friendly and helpful always smiling. We tried this hotel as it was just at the last minute we decided to get up and go... In the past we have stayed in five star hotels on the beach. But, if you are out and about this is ideal in every way.... The location is great too. The view of Emirates Tower is lovely on an evening.... I would definately give it a try if you intend on going to Dubai spending a fortune on spas and shopping........Not expensive either.

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 ....
