Hotel Address Boulevard (Dubai, UAE)

After spending months looking for the perfect hotel for our stay in Dubai, I slowly realized that there's really nothing close to being perfect in the city. But wait, Dubai is a city with more than 130 5-star hotels (according to Tripadvisor) most of which are considered luxury establishments. How can that be possible?

Perfect has a different definition for everyone. For us, time is our biggest enemy. As we are spending a mere 40 hours or so (including a midnight arrival) in Dubai, it pretty much rules out anything on the southern part of the city including Palm Jumeirah (way too much traveling back and forth with my kid).

I thought Hotel Address Boulevard would be the perfect fit for us. It's only a 15 to 20 minute ride from the airport (perfect since we arrived very late). It's directly connected to Dubai Mall so we won't have to worry about where to get food and consumables for my little nugget. Last but not least, the hotel is fully equipped with both indoor and outdoor swimming pools. Now, I could really see my nugget's eyes glowing with anticipation. 

Comparing to the rest of the hotels in the Hotel Address series (by Emaar Group), Hotel Address Boulevard has more of a modern European touch.

I love the service here. It's absolutely world class. The front desk manager really took good care of us, making sure that our check-in was efficient (coz it was getting late for my kid). He even took the trouble to escort us up to our room and showed us around.

Our room checks in at 47m² so there's a lot of space for my little one to run around with.

You can't go wrong with a marble bathroom.

The toilet was hidden behind one of the marbled wall inside the bathroom.

Like most of the new 5-star hotels, everything is within your fingertips, from light control, AC, entertainment system, in-room dining etc etc.

I would really appreciate some in-room dining right about now.

Our room was directly facing a highway but with double glazed window, we didn't hear a thing (Didn't realize there's a highway right underneath us too with the fog).

The city view looked much better without the fog!

Like I said before, there's a bridge directly connecting to Dubai Mall on the mezzanine floor of the hotel. It takes about 10 minutes to get there if you walk really slow like us.

And yes, there are a couple of swimming pools in the hotel, both indoor and outdoor. We only had the chance to check out the outdoor one.

My little one was so happy coz he got the whole pool all by himself!

There's a partial view of the skyscraping Burj Khalifa next to the pool area.
