Arjaan – Dubai Media City
The Arjaan is located smack in the middle of Media City Dubai just a few kilometers from the Mall of Emirates and the Wild Wadi Water Park. The most appealing aspect of the Arjan is that it was designed to resemble an Arabic Palace. The Arjaan stands a colossal 30 stories high with distinctive cupolas, arcs and domes and is a true architectural site.
The Arjaan Hotel Dubai
Offering contemporary Arabian styling and beautiful furnishings the rooms offer up a lovely aesthetic and a wide range of modern amenities. Each apartment includes luxury bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen and a private balcony with stunning views over the Marina, Palm Island or the City.
With a salon and spa on the premises the Arjaan prides itself on quality service whether it it’s assisting you with your taxi or arranging tours for the day.
Tip: The hotel is relatively new and some taxi driver’s may not have heard of it, a good landmark to get you back to the Arjaan is “Media City behind the Radisson Hotel.”
