Hotel Review: Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Media City

We had a relaxing overnight staycation experience at Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Media City. This hotel has been operating for 16 years now and it’s still one of the most popular ones in the city.

The hotel is in the center of Dubai Media City, home to the most reputable media company with offices from around the world and throughout the Middle East. It is also conveniently located near Dubai Marina, which has lively nightlife and shopping options.

Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Media City Staycation

It’s been a while since we had a hotel experience in Dubai so it was nice to spend it in the modern side of the city. One of its best features is its location. You’re in the heart of Media City, which means you’re close to all the action but you’re also away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre.

Radisson Blu Dubai Media City is within a short drive from Downtown Dubai, Business Bay, and the tallest building in the world; Burj Khalifa, and other famous Dubai landmarks. It is also within a 20-minute drive from the Dubai airports.

Bedroom: Executive Room

Check-in was quick and the room given to us was an Executive Room. At 32 sqm, it was very spacious for the two of us. The king bed was comfortable and the room came with a seating area, office area, free Wi-Fi, and a coffee machine.

We enjoyed the movies being played on the available channels on the flat-screen TV inside our room during that evening.

Upon arriving in the room, I immediately checked the internet and it registered a download speed of 10.17 Mbps. It’s free and easy to access, fast, and reliable. I could also access the free WiFi in other places of the hotel including the pool, spa, gym, and dining areas.

Restaurants

Certo – At Certo, you can enjoy the essence of classic Italian cuisine. This is where we had a memorable dinner during our staycation experience. I would really recommend you try out their wood-fire oven pizza!

Chef’s House – You can begin your day on a high note with international food and neighborhood favorites for breakfast.

Tamanya Terrace – This is the rooftop bar with views of the Dubai Marina, Palm Jumeirah, and Arabian Gulf. Match one of our popular Tiki drinks with some tropical eats while enjoying breathtaking panoramic views.

Icon Lounge & Bar – Classic bar foods like fish and chips, bangers and mash, salads, and other bar nibbles are on the menu for foodies. This is a great bar to unwind and order a cold beverage or cocktail while watching your favorite team win. We dropped by for early dinner here after checking out of the hotel.

Pool Bar – Guests can also order drinks and snacks for those who wish to lounge in the pool area.

Dreamworks Spa

Dreamworks Spa is the 3rd party spa of the hotel. My wife treated us to a wonderful Balinese massage that lasted for 1.5 hours. We got to use our Entertainer Dubai App for the massage session which was really good!
