Hotel evaluation: Dubai International Hotel at DXB Airport Terminal 3 Dubai

My wife and I had a hotel experience right at the DXB Airport Terminal 3. We had a relaxing 12 hour stay at the Dubai International Hotel, Concourse B. This was prior to our return to the Philippines.

Dubai International Hotel is available for transit passengers traveling to other destinations and having Dubai as a stopover. If you are in Dubai and fly with an Emirates carrier, you can check in 24 hours before departure, unless you fly to the US or Canada. (Please check this information from your travel agent).

This was our first time at the airport much, much earlier than our departure.

Those looking for a comfortable rest in the comfort of a luxury hotel need not leave the airport or seek out other places in the terminal, as the Dubai International Hotel is a wonderful place to stay.

Ahlan Meet & Greet

An important tip if you are new to Dubai's huge airport is that the hotel has one Ahlan Meet & Greet Service available where the hotel can take you from the arrival to the plane / airport directly to your hotel room.

Seth was the one who helped us, and we eased ourselves past the immigration switches into our room. If you are new to the vast Dubai Airport Terminal 3, Ahlan's Meet & Greet service is definitely an easy way to get redirected to your place of rest.

We checked into a deluxe room that is 32 square meters and quite large for me and my wife. As a guest you can choose according to your wishes between the following rooms:

  • 5 Royal / Presidential Suites
  • 56 junior suites
  • 61 executive rooms
  • 27 superior deluxe rooms
  • 381 deluxe rooms

The room comes with a flat-screen TV, a minibar and a seating area with a sofa. There is Wi-Fi, ironing facilities, and tea and coffee making facilities. The room is pretty complete and something I did not expect.

Most importantly, the room is noiseless despite the busy airport. You can rest assured when you stay at the Dubai International Hotel.

G Force Gym & Fitness Center and Health Club

After checking in, we explored the hotel. We found out that there is an on-site gym and fitness center for those who want to stay active during a stopover.

The gym offers a decent place with good equipment for cardio and weight training. Just enough space to work up a sweat.

Indoor pool & health club

Dubai International Hotel also has an indoor pool and a separate fitness club for men and women. The health club is equipped with steam room, sauna and whirlpool. So you can be particularly pampered in this area.

I found that quite interesting as I would not expect this luxury to be in a busy airport.

I am really glad that my wife and I were allowed to stay in the hotel before our flight. We have to stroll around Terminal 3 a bit without having to hurry. We had to refresh ourselves before our 9-hour flight and take a refreshing shower.

It was an unforgettable stay, even though it took less than a day. For transit passengers, this is definitely a place where you can rest.
