Metropolitan Hotel Dubai

Built in 1979, the original Metropolitan Hotel was famed for being one of Dubai’s first hotels and an institution in itself. ‘The Met’, as it became affectionately known, reigned as a treasured ‘home from home’ amongst local and international guests alike for over 20 years.

In 2013 the Metropolitan Hotel Dubai closed its doors to make way for Al Habtoor City – bringing with it the end of an era.

The Group’s Chairman made a firm promise to its loyal guests to revive the property in years to come. True to his word – an elevated and renewed Metropolitan Dubai opens in 2016, offering guests and a chance to experience a new chapter in the legacy of a hotel which sits truly in the heart of Dubai.
