One year exactly after our wedding, we spent our honeymoon in Dubai. Why did we choose this place? Over the last decade, Dubai has reached an unparalleled height of stardom as the world’s most visited tourist attraction and an e-commerce hub. Many people see it as the golden sparrow of the Emirates that everyone has to experience. If you are all fired up to visit Dubai for your next holiday, check out DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Al Barsha.

For accommodation, we stayed in this hotel for one week. It looks as subtle and stylish as you’d expect from one of the world’s leading luxury hotel chains. This four-star hotel is located opposite Mall of the Emirates, Dubai’s world-class shopping, entertainment and dining hub. It’s only 20-30 minutes away from Dubai Airport and also near many key business districts and corporations.

Review of DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel and Residences (Al Barsha, Dubai)


The hotel lobby exhibits a contemporary cosmopolitan appeal. There’s an easy flow to the reception, waiting areas, elevators, and cafe on the ground floor. The atmosphere is spacious and cozy, detail-driven with many modern art pieces. With a comfortable setup and a calm color scheme, it is a handy haven in the heart of the city.

The “king guest room” features a king-size bed, an L-shaped couch on the corner, an elegant bathroom, a mini-bar, a 42-inch TV, WiFi and an MP3 alarm clock. Finishes in this suite are high end, with bespoke furniture and plush fabrics. From the windows, the view outside overlooks to the swimming pool on the mezzanine and Mall of Emirates to the farther back. The only problem we experienced was that the water from the shower area would always overflow to the toilet whenever we took a bath.

On our last day, we visited the complimentary 24-hour fitness center and the sparkling outdoor pool.


Service focuses on life’s real luxuries: a warm welcome with DoubleTree by Hilton’s signature chocolate chip cookie upon check-in, knowledgeable advice, privacy when you want it and conversation with the staff when you’re feeling convivial. A number of the staff here are Filipinos so it’s easier to get along with them. At specific schedules, the hotel provides a complimentary shuttle service to Jumeirah Beach and Mall of the Emirates.


DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel and Residences Dubai – Al Barsha has a convenient café, perfect for those who want a decent meal without leaving the property. Tikka Café and Restaurant – Bistro was where we had buffet breakfast every morning. Food varieties were fine but after having the same choices for seven straight days, we got tired of the usual tastes and missed our comfort food for breakfast, back home (daing na bangus, corned beef, spam, bacon, sardines, sinangag, hot chocolate, etc.)

Price for Value:

The hotel’s style, character, impressive ambiance and service make up for a reasonable price for its value. It’s definitely a top pick! Price for 7 nights was about P20,952 (with complimentary breakfast included). We booked our stay in DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel and Residences Dubai – Al Barsha through Aerostar Travel and Tours.
