Modern Manzil Downtown in Dubai.










Having stepped foot into Dubai almost five years ago I was quite excited to revisit the city for a second time with a team of 9 Instagrammers, filmmakers and Snapchatters to work with the Dubai Tourism Board to promote and create awareness of the rich culture of the city. I was well aware that I would be greeted by the unforgiving heat from the sun and wondered what my outlook on this alien city would be like by the end of the trip and whether or not I would have a renewed perspective of this city and I have to admit that I actually do. 

Our first stop was at the Al Manzil Hotel in Dubai’s Old Town District and I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with its location. Surrounded by all the main points of interests of downtown Dubai from the Burj Khalifa to Dubai Mall - everything was literally a five minute stroll.

Upon our arrival we were greeted by the most divine-smelling reception area that I've ever experienced. I also discovered my love for their mint and lemon drink which was served as soon as we entered (cravings have actually started kicked in!) It's quite hard to fault a hotel which does such generous breakfast spreads, has a great location, a rooftop pool and an enormous bed. I mean what more could a girl ask for? Perfect start to a perfect vacation offering me a home away from home experience. Thank you for an amazing stay! I will be back shortly. xx

Nice Blog! When one prepares the list of remarkable hotels in Dubai, the only name that strike in mind is Burj Al Arab. Recently my friend visited there with her family through the well know dubai travel agency Altdubai. Due to this agency she enjoyed her trip a lot and it became very memorable.Thank you for sharing this nice blog.

I have always wanted to visit Dubai. Perhaps I will get to do that soon. If so, I will keep your description of this hotel's food in mind. The food seems to include lots of natural fruit. The big pool sounds inviting as well. That should help them to attract quite a few visitors, since Dubai is on the warmer side.
