Bonnington Jumeirah Lakes Towers Dubai Reviews
a piece of London :) Jun 13, 2011
The hotel provide Rooms as well as Hotel apartments, located in the Jumeirah Lake Towers area, an hour away from Abu Dhabi and 30 min away from Dubai Airport. just 10min by taxi away from Downtown and very close to Jumeirah.
Made an early check-in at 8am as I had landed in Dubai after a short vacation trip. I have landed at around 3am, I have called the Hotel to check for a late check-in rates as I do not have to pay in full for a few hours sleep. The front desk night manager asked me to come to the hotel and everything is gonna be fine.
I was surprised by how customer oriented they are, he offered to show me around and was almost baby sitting me :) in order to make up for the time I will have to wait to check-in at 8am, he also offered that I can have a nap at the lounge.
A big Thank you goes out to Mr. Mohammed – Night Manager
Must say that room service was the quickest I have ever experienced, you call them asking for something and you will find the guy at your door as soon as you hang up :), rub the lamp, I have tried that twice, excellent service. ( a gene in a bottle speed service :) )
The rooms are nice, very simple and neat. I liked their bath room though.
nothing to say much about the view as most of the plots are under construction, but it should be one of the most beautiful urban views in Dubai after the completion of the construction as it would be a mix of lakes and urban towers.
Note that the hotel is in the out skirts of Dubai, you do not have to worry about finding a taxi as there are always taxis waiting by the hotel gate, in case you fail to find any, let the concierge call a taxi for you, it may cost you an extra 5 Dirhams. It is around 15 min drive to reach Dubai mall and down town Dubai.
Dining & Spa:
Currently they have only one restaurant serving the 3 main meal, nice food and good service, another restaurant is opt to open by next year, they have a bar that I have not tried.
They have no Spa just a hair dresser that may offer a back and shoulder massage.
Like the small swimming pool, located in the middle of the hotel building with half glass walls offering you a very good view of the area.
Nothing much to see but a construction site and streets

Is this in Dubai??? Really? Jan 06, 2011
Ehh?? wait a minute... are we really in Dubai????
Checking into the hotel was a task itself.. upon arrival, our room was not ready, plus according to the hotel staff, the package i had booked was not showing up on my reservatioN!! thank god for my blackberry!! i just whipped it out and proved them wrong!!
so they check me into a room, filthy room, plus the floor smelled like sewage.. i guess the cleaning crew had not done their job... after much convincing.. they agreed to move me into another room... however it was pretty much the same minus the smell..anyway i was too excited to see dubai.. so i let it go.. just asked for a Housekeeping manager to come over and clear it up a bit....
headed out of my room to take a look at the hotel.. surprisingly mostly all europeans were there.. long stay guests as well... which was great.. totally felt comfortable.. not what i expected dubai to be at all.. bikini clad men and women relaxing at a pool... i could adjust to this =)
alright so back to the actual hotel.. room was quite pretty.. room service BLEH.. didn't love it.. def skip it.. breakfast- not worth it.. pool- totally worth it.. the view was amazing... price wise.. i def didn't feel the bang for the buck.. i was splurging i felt and the hotel didn't seem like it was worth it... also the location was a bit off.. nothing was really close.. and the cab rides were expensive..
overall this hotel is a PASS for me... i would not stay there again.. =X

Awesome Hotel Mar 06, 2011
This was one of the best hotels I stayed at in a while. The only bad thing about it was that it was located where there was still so much construction going on and nothing around it was yet open. So you couldn't walk to anywhere, had to take a taxi, which was available non-stop, so no problem with that.
The room was excellent. Very fancy. I especially liked their bathroom. Service was great. Staff super friendly. Food was good too. We ate breakfast there a few mornings, but then decided to eat elsewhere because it wasn't that cheap, 20$ each morning. We were on a budget.
The hotel was very clean too. Nothing to complain on that. Would definitely stay there again.
