All round the hotel and facilities were great. My only complaint was the putrid fragrance that was being pumped to excess into the reception area and for some reason the walkway to the pool/sports bar - we actually had to hold our breath to walk through it. Sofitel need to understand that synthetic fragrances are proven toxic to humans and they are poisoning their staff and customers by using this rediculous policy of scenting the common areas.

View of Burj Khalifa

Pros: Club Millesime access was an added bonus with a high quality breakfast. Loved the bathroom facilities and also the view to Burj Khalifa.
Location: Walking distance to the Burj Khalifa/Dubai Mall metro station which in turn is a 10 minute walk to Dubai Mall and its myriad attractions
Loved it all, the service was impeccable, facilities of a high standard, room modern and comfortable and the view of Burj Khalifa topped it off. Would hurry back to stay here again.
