Review: Hilton Garden Inn Dubai Al Muraqabat

Trip to Kazakhstan in Lufthansa First Class and Dubai to Stockholm in Qatar Airways Business Class

A few weeks ago, I traveled to Kazakhstan for the first time where I spent two nights in the capital city of Astana. I flew from Dubai to Astana via Frankfurt (and back) in Lufthansa First Class using my miles and needless to say, it was one of the best trips I've ever had. I had a separate ticket on Qatar Airways between Stockholm and Dubai where I flew in economy class on the outbound and business class on the inbound. My business class ticket on Qatar Airways from Dubai gave me the chance to visit their newly opened lounge which was really nice, as well as that of British Airways'. This whole trip lasted for a week and eventhough it was very extensive, I loved every single minute of it!

CONCLUSION

This is actually the first Hilton property I've stayed at in Dubai and I was really glad I stayed here. I loved the gift I got specially the coffee mug since it has the name of the hotel in it (as well as the Al Mina property) which makes it unique. The receptionists were all very friendly and helpful. The room I got was very nice and my favorite brand, the Peter Thomas Roth bath amenities offered were a big plus since I remember getting a different brand (Neutrogena) when I stayed in Frankfurt a few years ago. The pool was big enough although I did not have the time to enjoy it. Lastly, the location is really ideal since there is a Metro station nearby although taking a taxi in Dubai is not that expensive either. Overall, I enjoyed my stay in this hotel and would stay here again if ever I'm back in Dubai. To all the staff of Hilton Garden Inn Dubai Al Muraqabat, "Shukran!"
