We stayed during a quick layover in London. The Balmain toiletries were wonderful, and the bed was among the comfiest hotel beds I've ever slept in. We left too early to enjoy breakfast, but it was really convenient for our 6am flight.

I strongly regret having reserved one of their most expensive rooms. I didn't at all expect the luxury of a dubai hotel with everything being gold plated, but I still expected a decent experience for $450. The windows of my room were dirtied with oily fingerprints, the amenities were just a couple of teabags with instant coffee, no nespresso machine in the room. The room was very small and cramped for the price. The staff were ridiculously rude and acted as if I was bothering them when all I did was ask them why I couldn't get a room service breakfast even though I had prepaid the breakfast on Expedia. Apparently $450 doesn't get you room service for this hotel, you have to pay extra for that. You can't even grab the buffet tray and bring it to your room. I went to $200 a night hotels that let you do these things. TL;DR ridiculously rude staff and prepaying the breakfast on expedia doesn't give you room service, apparently $450 a night doesn't cover room service with this joke of a hotel.

Directly connected to Terminal 1. Room nicely appointed and very comfortable bed. The only negative was that the ventilation in the room was not great - had to put the AC and the fan on high, but it was extremely noisy.
