City Seasons Hotel is a five Star hotel, especially preferred by those who would not like to spend a lot of time in Dubai or they are in transit only. With the Dubai Airport being only some minutes away, this hotel really profits for its owners. Although not the highest category in the area, the City Seasons has its location among its best points.
City Seasons Hotel is a bit further inside Deira, which means that it isn’t directly by the Dubai Creek, it needs a 10-15 minutes walk to reach it. City Seasons Hotel offers mid category, slightly used rooms for the guests, which means that it is perfect for those who are not especially fussy or who only spend a night in the hotel. The fact is the hotel is close to the Deira City Centre and by this to the centre of Deira. Deira with the opposite lying Bur Dubai districts makes the heart of old Dubai, where you can find traces of the past times. The area is very nice and very busy. Indians who normally run their own business, also many low quality cheap hotels in the area, heavily inhibit Deira’s main part. For this reason, the local food offer is especially wide; you cannot find many Asian ethnic restaurants over here. With the water taxi, you can easily go to the other side of Dubai Creek canal, and visit the beautiful Bur Dubai with its historical streets, Dubai Museum, which is a museum within a fort, The Dubai Heritage and Fishing village is not far from City Seasons Hotel.
The 94 rooms of the City Seasons Hotel are nice and cosy. The hotel also has special rooms for handicapped guests. All rooms are equipped with TV, Air Condition, clean bed linen, soap and shampoo. According to most of its visitors, the hotel rooms are those that are worth the hotels rating. Apart from this, unfortunately there are some occasions when the staff is not as helpful as they should be, also there has been issued on the finding of the hotel. The hotel has a fine restaurant, a fitness centre, a swimming pool and they offer free airport transfer.
Now let us mention some of the drawbacks. City Seasons Hotel offers free WI-FI. Please note, that if you read this for a hotel in Dubai, the free WIFI is limited to the lobby area. There are some other inconveniences, which unfortunately apply for the City Seasons Hotel too. First, when you go to Dubai, to a smaller category hotel, which could also mean a four star in Deira for instance, extra services or facilities are not much. Many times, they are not even close. At some hotels, guests feel inconvenient because swimming pool areas close as easily as 17-18.00H. This also applies for gyms. In addition, if the personnel is not there, you cannot use any of them. This cannot be considered acceptable, especially not in the summer. Sometimes those lucky on the first floor can also catch some receptions. If you opt for WIFI in your room, then you will need to pay an extra.
Overall, the City Seasons Hotel is a fine choice for those who like the city life, who would like to be close to the many attractions both Deira and the opposite lying Bur Dubai has to offer. The City Seasons Hotel’s rates start from AED 475 in the top season per room per night.
