Overall good value for the price but the hotel is a bit on the older side & we had some minor cleanliness issues with the room. Also the breakfast was pretty mediocre compared to our stays in other Dubai hotels. Staff were nice & friendly.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

This was our second time staying at Grand Excelsior. We stayed here four years ago for our honeymoon before so decided to book the same hotel for our recent trip to Dubai. Overall, it's a nice hotel. rooms are nice but bathrooms can use some remodeling. We had some issues with our original room, but the staff (Princess at the front desk) took care of it and upgraded us to a better room. Great staff and very helpful...Nasir, Adnan, Tokir and Princess to name a few. Breakfast is included with your stay, but I wish there were more options

This hotel is very old the staff are very nice but hotel it self sauna is not working and very old they charge you for ice if you ask for it. The rooms are ok but it’s not worth it to stay here next time I will pay just a fee dollars more to go to better hotel.
