There’s something eternally charming about Old Dubai, and if you’re in the mood for some exploration on that side of town, there’s a new hotel that’s worth checking out. Located in the heart of Deira, Hyatt Place Dubai/Wasl District gives guests the opportunity to discover key landmarks such as the heritage and diving village, the Creek, the famed spice and gold souks as well as numerous retail, dining and entertainment outlets.
The hotel joins Hyatt Place Dubai/Al Rigga and Hyatt Place Dubai/Baniyas Square in the contemporary, yet affordable hospitality offerings category. There’s no valet parking, just a spacious basement where you can conveniently park your car – no paranoia over the whereabouts of your vehicle here.
Located in a busy street, this particular Hyatt Place is full on positive vibes, giving off a ‘home away from home’ feel as you step into the lobby. Reception staff are the real stars of the show, with attentive, courteous service that goes above and beyond.
The rooms are simple, yet big and clean – very clean. There’s a widescreen TV with a solid variety of international channels, an L-shaped sofa for the ultimate comfort and a bed you won’t want to bid farewell to.
For dining options, there’s Gallery Café/Wasl District, which offers freshly prepared meal options for lunch and dinner, 24/7 Gallery Market featuring a range of convenient and delicious grab ‘n’ go options and Focus Bar where you’ll find snacks and a selection of beverages.
Breakfast, while not massive, is enjoyable nevertheless. As for room service, it’s quite exceptional. The chef clearly knows grills, with lamb chops and steak that are fine dining-worthy – as juicy and tender as can be, and mashed potatoes and vegetables that perfectly complement the cuts.
A good night’s sleep is guaranteed, as walls and doors are soundproof, so there will be no need to worry about other guests at all – not that anyone would be at Hyatt Place Dubai/Wasl District, because whatever it may be, they will take care of it.
