Rated 5 out of 5 by Steffen Attentive staff and good rates
The room which we have been given was very spacious and the entire staff (or at least those we met: Front Desk, Housekeeping, Concierge & Restaurant staff) were very friendly and attentive. Everybody was very welcoming when we passed by entering or leaving the building.
The location was good since we could get to three metrostations and different supermarkets without any hassle.
The pool on the rooftop has been nice as well.
The rates at the Eatery restaurant and Yesterday pub were very reasonable.
Can be recommended!

I really enjoyed my stay. Staff were approachable and professional, and dealt with all issues in a timely manner. I had one of the best sleeps of my life!
Definitely worth it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Chris09 Bad Experience
On arrival at 2 a.m. the Room was not ready, as a matter of fact : there was NO room available at all; we had to look for another hotel for the night. the next day at 2:30 p.m. there was still no room available, despite a reservation; after 30 minutes a 'spg preferred room' was made available : right opposite the elevator. It was impossible to sleep as the noise from arriving and departing guests outside in the corridor was disturbing, overall a very bad experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Reb09 top comfort and welcoming atmosphere
Arriving at your hotel and being greeted by desk staff was a pleasant event. The room was well laid out for guest comfort, and the bed was the most comfortable I had slept in during my six weeks of travel in Europe and elsewhere. Top marks for the dining experience at dinner and the breakfast menu was very good also. Would certainly recommend and stay again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pablonolo Top Class Service
Have just had two weeks at the 4 Points in Mankhool, Dubai. I honestly cannot think of anything bad to say. The standard of cleanliness was exemplary and attention to detail superb. The breakfast staff knew our names from Day 2 and we were greeted every time we entered the hotel. Services were excellent - the Internet was fast, the pool and health club were great environments to be in and the bar downstairs was friendly and had a really nice atmosphere. You really felt like you were with people who knew what they were doing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tommy29 It gets better
This last stay was a little better then my previous one for sure I was only in the hotel for 12 hours mostly sleeping, Didn't get a chance to use anything or even eat. I was feeling sick from something I ate the day before I arrived,
I have been staying at this hotel for years now and it has its ups and downs but the concierge staff take care of ya no matter what the ever revolving front desk staff does, The concierge staff make this hotel what it is just a nice place to stay. The rooms need a pick me up from the old to the 2014 standard. Free internet that took a long time but they are getting on track. Costumer service needs to be fine tuned starting at the front desk. The person at the front desk should be someone you trust and would like to say hello to every morning its just not there yet.
The pool area can be a big money maker but no one pays attention to details regarding this. it needs to be updated with more entertainments, food and bev.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Staronthesky Room issue
* I've asked the recepionist to have a twin bed room as my twin bother was with me in my trip.
but actually when i got into the room it was a king size bed room and i was not in a good mood to go again and argue with the staff to meet my requirement.
small mistake can get the customer confused and may not come again to the same place.
*i've phoned the hotel to book my room but the discussion with the hotel representative was a little bit tough so i decided to book via starwood website.

The hotel staff was excellent, especially the young men at the concierge's desk. The front desk staff sometimes had a hard time listeneing to what you were trying to tell them. Room was comfortable and clean. We used suite night awards and received a suite upgrade from the standard room. The location is the only thing that didn't impress us. We would like something closer to the metro, so that we can just use that and a occasional taxi to get around. Walking to far is not an option, even though we enjoy walking and talking to the locals. However, its to hot to walk more than a 1/4 mile or so. Not much to walk to around the hotel so a taxi is a must. The hotel provided a shuttle to the DUBAI mall and Jumeira beach. Drop off and pickup in the afternoon. It was much appreciated.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ghadeer disappointed
Negative: - The room was so dirty.
- I faced a problem with the water heater in my bathroom, as the hot water only lasts for two minutes and then cut off. I asked the hotel to fixe the problem, they sent me one of the workers twice but without any benefit, so I toke the shower under the cold water in this cold weather.
- The Room service doesn't have a lot of choices for vegetarians people.
- A small swimming pool and not deep
- I didn't like the breakfast, It wasn't diverse.
Positive: - Good soundproofing

Rated 4 out of 5 by Asterix70 Friendly Hotel
I have stayed many times at the 4Points Downtown Bur Dubai and have allows felt that staff were genuinely pleased to see me back, not like some establishments where the welcome is not sincere.
The standard of cleanliness in my room was first class and all requests were met with a smile.
Breakfast fare was varied and of a high standard and more than sufficient.
I would like to mention some members of your team who have made a special effort to greet me with a ready smile and welcome each day!
Miss Swarna in the coffee shop is always polite and helpful, Miss Julie in the restaurant at breakfast time always has a smile and friendly greeting.
Your team on the reception and all the bell hops also have ready smiles and are extremely patient and helpful.
I look forward to my return to the hotel with pleasure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jyomehta Comfortable Hotel but can be more user friendly
Reasonably priced and good location, this hotel offers good facilities for business and leisure travel. Worth mention is the warmth of the staff in coffee shop at breakfast time and courtesy of the reception and concierge desk. Rooms are comfortable, especially the beds and linen. However, there is excess storage furniture that eats up the living space. Bathrooms could be more comfortable, especially the bath fittings - flow and force of shower in my room left much to be desired and the wash basin was clogged often. The hair dryer was in one of the drawers and I noticed it only when leaving! Thoughtful of the hotel management to provide complimentary shuttles to the beach and malls. Overall, nice hotel that could give significantly more value with some minor thought through changes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by maksa Overall good
My stay was overall good. There are few things that need attention. Internet should be accessible free in room as well, what difference does it make whether you in the lobby or in your room, you still using it. I was asked to pay AED100 for a Preferred room although the reservation asked AED100 for a junior suite. I could not take the suite as i needed two beds. Spg members are normally offered these rooms at no extra charge as it is exactly the same as standard besides couple extra amenities.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Peterag The food needs to be improved
Basically the hotel is very good and comfortable.
The problem is that the restaurants are quite poor and certainly not up to the standard expected in such a hotel. I suspect they are now focussing on the tour package industry. This would not generally be too important but unfortunately there are no other restaurants nearby, too far to walk, and it is inconvenient to take a taxi each time to eat.
I hope the catering can be improved because the hotel would then be excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by petemel It was our home away from home
There was never a day, where i could complain about or post any negative comments about this Hotel.
Right from the Bell boys, Receptionist ,Security, etc etc ..the list just goes on, who made our stay most memorable which we will always remember. It was so good that we even extended our stay for an additional 3 nights. Mr Anthony, Wasim, Chris, Deverat, Ina,Mr Gregor, the names who we recall...... made our stay comfortable and memorable.
Breakfast was excellent with a variety of choices.

Clean and comfortable but not in a very desirable location.
Staff helpful but reception needs more agreeable and less stressed personnel.
As a gold SPG member I expected better than a room on the first floor above the main entrance and facing a parking lot, construction and piles of rubble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hims1981 Just a great Hotel.
Stayed in this hotel end of March 2013. All I can say is i was more then please with the location away from the main city hassle and bustle, yet so close to travel there. The staff was the best bit for me, they are awesome, very friendly and always made an effort to strike a conversation. rooms and hotel itself is more then I had expected for the cheaper price range for a hotel in Dubai. overall a fantastic hotel and I will definitely be staying here again when I return to Dubai.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Veronique50 Great Hotel... and stay
You have done an excellent move with the "Go Green" program.
In my point of view, you can go further: with the Go gReen prog you do not change bedsheets for 3 days.
And do you think if you ask the customers (all customers) to accept to change the linnens every second or third day.
As I put it myself, who change the bed sheets at home every day?? I really doubt it. My wife does it once a week or 3 times / 15 days...
All of us nowadays are aware of any environment / ecology issue and you have to stress this point. And I am pretty sure that customers will accept.
On the other hand, make sure that "go Green" prog does not mean DND. House keeping staff have to go into the romms and check...
once more and as I told the guys there, in your hotel "I feel home away from home".
keep up the good team work
Thanks a lot

Rated 3 out of 5 by Laocowboy2 Standards are Slipping
I have stayed at this hotel many times and despite the defects in facilities (no Wi-Fi in rooms so tablets cannot be used, tired gym with no individual videos, tired pool) price and location suited me. The main plus of the hotel was the staff - friendly and always trying to please. Unfortunately standards appear to be slipping - with the laundry being the latest example. My last stay cost me a suit and a pair of trousers due to an apparent inability to understand 'dry c;eaning'

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gary14 Excellent Hotel
This has to be one of the best hotels we have stayed at. From the the time we stepped out of the taxi on arrival until departure we found every single staff member to be friendly and helpful, and always with a smile. All aspects of the hotel were clean and first rate. Our room was large and very comfortable with everything you could require. The food at breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice in a smart dinning area.
I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JadeNrdn Close to the Airport, that's it!
The hotel is well equipped, however you do feel that this is an old hotel. It definitely needs some improvements. The AC for example has a mind of its own. The recycling air fan's noise is louder than the AC itself. TV channels are a disgrace, should add more channels asap. Staff are very friendly but very slow. More international electric plugs are needed.

Very satisified with my experience at the Four Points Sheraton. My room was large, clean, and comfortable. The staff was also very nice. Hotel was also in a good location, just wish it could be a bit closer to the metro stop. No complaints about the quality of the hotel. Great hotel for the value!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dmilsi Pleasant Stay
. This was my first stay at this property. I chose it because I could easily reach it from the airport by Metro. Getting to Al Fahidi Station (closest to the hotel) was quick although it does require a transfer to the Green Line at Bur Juman, and the walk from the station with 2 bags took about 10 minutes. The front desk staff recognized my platinum status and gave me a well-appointed, extremely spacious room. As I was only there over night, I didn't really have a chance to sample any of the facilities except the restaurant, which offered an ample breakfast with sufficient variety. Although the hotel is in a mostly residential neighborhood, its proximity to the Metro and it's shuttle service to Dubai Mall make it an inviting and well-situated choice for those in Dubai for business or leisure. I'd definitely stay again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by markie1959 not the best
Having to pay for a plug adapter upon arrival was nonsense. no restaurants near the hotel in fact nothing even close so your stuck paying for food there. would not give me a late checkout since my flight did not leave until after midnight so ended up spending 12 hours at the airport. So much for helping customers. Will not stay there again for sure. Room lacked a lot also. TV kept going out and come back on with volume full blast. ended up unplugging to sleep.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sophie3 GOOD ROOMS BUT UNHELPFUL STAFF
I have stayed in many hotels from the Starwood group and I have always been impressed until now. Upon arrival our room was not ready, which was fine as we were a little early, however after 3pm (the check in time) we were advised that we could not check in because the hotel was full the previous night and they had allowed late check out! This was eventually resolved with the manager of the hotel however the service of the general staff dealing with my reservation was very poor. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and wifi was included in my rate so I was pleased with this. The pool looked nothing like the picture and the lack of sunbeds was dissapointing. The breakfast was average. It is a shame this Sheraton does not compare to any others I have stayed in. The service/food in the restaurant inside the hotel was excellent.

We stayed in this hotel for 1 night, it was a good experience, the room was spacious, comfortable and clean. I travel a lot and I can easily say that this room has everything you need for a short stay, the staff were nice and friendly. I actually had an issue with the internet and the front desk employee was very helpful. If something needs an improvement in the room is the shower itself, very old and not very functional (room 610) otherwise it was all good.

This is a good hotel with all facilities, but needs improvement in food (taste) especially on the vegetarian stuff. Options in veg is very low (or no options at all). I am an SPG Gold card member, but did not see any special recognition
