Sat in the heart of the Downtown Burj Khalifa district, The Address has an enviable positioning for some of Dubai’s biggest attractions. It overlooks the Dubai Fountain, which spurts water several hundred metres into the air each evening, and neighbours the vast Dubai Mall. And, of course, there’s all 828 looming metres of the Burj Khalifa just a stroll away. A taxi to the beach will take around 10-15 minutes, while the Financial district is just five to ten minutes away.
Much like the whole of the hotel, there’s a distinctly modern feel in each of the rooms, which are bright and well-designed, with a spacious bathroom separated by wooden Venetian blinds. Every room comes with a balcony, but if it’s a spectacular view you’re after then it’s definitely worth upgrading to one overlooking the Dubai Fountain and Burj Khalifa.
The lobby is a large, bright and open space with various seating areas and a very welcoming feel, with marble and wood used to great effect.
Eating and drinking
There are four restaurants within The Address Downtown Dubai, plus three bars (one of which you can swim to from the pool). Set on the ground floor, Fazari serves a broad selection of Asian, Mediterranean, Indian and Arabic dishes either indoors or out on the terrace in the shadow of the Burj Khalifa, and is good spot for breakfast or lunch. Up on the 63rd floor, Neos is a popular – if hideously expensive – cocktail lounge, offering suitably ostentatious furnishing alongside astonishing views. For Neos, you'll definitely need smart shoes to get in.
The five-tier infinity pool surrounded by sun-loungers has most guests entertained, but there’s also a generous spa, plus children’s club.
Extremely friendly, helpful and efficient.
