Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai
The Park Regis Dubai is a large business hotel in the North of Dubai. We landed super late on our first day and were so happy that the hotel was only a 15 minutes’ drive away from the airport. The location of the hotel was perfect as the next metro station Burjuman was only a 10 minutes’ walk away. In 20 minutes you could get to Dubai Downtown and the train takes you in 15 minutes to the Gold Soukh and Spize Bazaar. Don’t underestimate distances in Dubai. For example from the North of Dubai it will take you approximately 50 minutes to the Emirates Mall by train. This is why we booked different hotels in different locations.
Park Regis Dubai The rooms
We stayed in one of the beautiful Deluxe Twin Rooms and had two cozy king size beds. I’ve rarely slept so well in a business hotel. The room was quite big with around 40m2 and had a modern bathroom with shower and separated bathtub. One point I have to remark is the plan of the bathroom. The shower was right next to the bathroom door, which had to be closed in order to open the shower door. The Deluxe Twin Rooms are located on the 11th – 16th floor and our room was facing west. I find the price for a 5* star hotel quite reasonable. In fact, the superior rooms already start from 110€ per night exclusive breakfast.
Park Regis Dubai The rooftop terrace & Spa
We spend most of the time on the stunning rooftop terrace of Park Regis Kris Kin. While it was super crowded in the morning and around lunch, it was super calm in the evening. We were the only ones at the pool.We didn’t know that the sun would set already at 5:30 pm and that it gets dark super fast. The evening atmosphere was so beautiful and the view onto the skyline of Dubai Downtown is amazing. Luckily, the temperatures remained warm thus we spent the evening along the pool and relaxed at the whirlpool or sauna. How pleasant are a couple of hours of spa on a city trip?
Park Regis Dubai Breakfast buffet
Breakfast was served at the French brasserie LeMetro. I was already super excited for the buffets in the UAE because I knew that they would have an international breakfast offer. Next to a continental buffet they also had some Asian specialties, such as dim sum but also Oriental dishes. I always started the day the English way with baked beans, sausage and hash browns. AfterwardsI tried the other dishes of the buffet.

Park Regis Dubai Kris with a View
You’ll find a great variety of restaurants in Dubai. However, most of the restaurants and clubs are located in hotels because it is super hard for normal restaurants to get a license for alcohol. On our last evening, we were super tired and treated ourselves with a dinner at the wonderful Kris Kin with a View restaurant. Not for nothing is it called With A View. The restaurant is located on the 19th floor and has a 360° panorama view.
