We had a relaxing overnight staycation experience at Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Media City. This hotel has been operating for 16 years now and it’s still one of the most popular ones in the city.
The hotel is in the center of Dubai Media City, home to the most reputable media company with offices from around the world and throughout the Middle East. It is also conveniently located near Dubai Marina, which has lively nightlife and shopping options.
Radisson Blu DMC has 246 rooms and suites that exude sophistication and comfort, with smooth lines, warm décor, and amenities such as free Wi-Fi, an award-winning Italian restaurant, and a sports bar. A well-equipped gym, a spa, and an outside pool where visitors can soak up the Arabian rays are among the other amenities available.

Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Media City Staycation
It’s been a while since we had a hotel experience in Dubai so it was nice to spend it in the modern side of the city. One of its best features is its location. You’re in the heart of Media City, which means you’re close to all the action but you’re also away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre.
Radisson Blu Dubai Media City is within a short drive from Downtown Dubai, Business Bay, and the tallest building in the world; Burj Khalifa, and other famous Dubai landmarks. It is also within a 20-minute drive from the Dubai airports.

Check-in was quick and the room given to us was an Executive Room. At 32 sqm, it was very spacious for the two of us. The king bed was comfortable and the room came with a seating area, office area, free Wi-Fi, and a coffee machine.
We enjoyed the movies being played on the available channels on the flat-screen TV inside our room during that evening.
