“We aren’t hoteliers, we are lifestyle curators and believe that life isn’t about the number of breaths you take, but the moments that take your breath away. This is the philosophy that underpins everything we do”. – THE H DUBAI
The H Dubai is a gateway to the Middle East’s most dynamic city. Renowned for their eclectic and vibrant selection of dining and nightlife experiences; the award-winning Mandara Spa; world-class rooms and suites and a dynamic events centre – this is truly a destination of life and style. The five-star boutique The H Dubai showcases elegance and bespoke luxury, while creating warm and memorable lifestyle experiences.
There’s something absolutely miraculous about accomplishing a milestone. The first 10K followers on our Instagram, the first time we introduced our Baby R on social media, our first staycation with Baby R. Moreover, the first week of Zeeshan’s #CEO1Month Journey at Adecco Middle East. These moments are something that we’ll cherish forever, not just because of how unbelievably grateful we are for achieving them, but because these milestones are reassurances that we’re achieving our goals and still aiming to reach to the top.
Ever since we started our blog we wanted to write about our hotel experiences. So #TRAVELWITHDXBMUNCHER will be the gateway to our Hotel Reviews. We were certain that slowly but surely our time will come for our first hotel review, and many thanks to THE H HOTEL, that moment arrived sooner than we expected. So here you go with our first ever Luxury Hotel review – another one of our milestones achieved.
OUR WEEKEND AT H DUBAI
The hotel was beyond breathtaking, the decor and an ambiance that’s bound to leave you flabbergasted. From the minute we stepped into H Dubai, the vibe, the structure, the vibrancy of the lobby, everything just simply blew us away.
But it’s not just the opulence and beauty of the hotel that leaves a brilliant impression moments after you step in, it’s also the impeccable, friendly and positively professional service we received right from the moment we stepped foot into the hotel. There was not a minute that had gone by during our stay when we were left unaware or unsure of what do to next. Our itinerary was jam-packed with visits to H Dubai’s restaurants and fitness facilities and wander around the property.
Getting There | The H Dubai is not too far away from Dubai International Airport. It will take you good 15-minute drive and honestly, with the scenic views on the way, you’ll find yourself reaching the hotel in no time. You could use the public taxis that are lined up at the airport or coordinate with the concierge team to arrange for a pick and drop service to the hotel (this is the best and safest alternative). This elegant, modern hotel is a 13-minute walk from the Dubai World Trade Centre and 5 km from the Burj Khalifa skyscraper and observation deck.
The Vicinity | The H Dubai is located in Dubai and is at the perfect location to explore local artifacts, attractions and do some shopping. Souk Madinat Jumeirah and Mall of The Emirates are a 15-minute drive from The H Hotel.
STAYING AT THE H DUBAI | So relaxing, your experience will stay with you.

The check-in and check-out went very smoothly and it hardly took time. The Award wining Lobby of H is spacious and remarkable. The decor is done up in the hues of black and gold looks retro.

Delphine Restaurant is located at the lobby of The H Hotel. This Restaurant was exclusive, urban, chic and had the most vivacious vibes, with a lovely gathering and delectable food options. It was indeed an unforgettable afternoon soiree!!
Just a fraction of our amazing Hollywood Brunch. This brunch is luxury at its best with a touch of class no less @thehdubai every Friday from 12:30 pm – 4:00 pm.
