yeah I agree...
I was in the Al Qasr for lunch today, that's still one of my favorite hotels here...

damn straight, Spugs... which is why I feel actually dirty for (a) reading the whole article :curse:, and (b) agreeing with every word

of course, it's possible that it was written from some general anti-Arab, xenophobic Sun-type bias, and not from a specific anti-cheese, anti-fakeness bias, so I can still rest on my Guardianista laurels and feel contentedly smug

Typical response, why can't you all say something positive about this place instead of moaning and whinging your way through life here.

Everyone knows this place is Disneyland so do you say that any of that groups places in Paris, HK, Calif or Fl are tacky?

Of course you dont.

Go there enjoy, giggle at the blinged out holidaymakers, while knowing that you get better nosebag at Ravi's.


But if the Beckhams, the Prices and Paris bloody Hilton turned up you'd still want a ticket for the party.

Give the people what they want, you don't like it, enjoy Al Qasr, which, although fantastic, is still vastly overpriced for the quality and service that you get.

(Rant over, I've had a bad day)

errr....the first thing I said when I saw the building is that it looks like a cheap Disney hotel...

I don't come on BE to moan and whinge about Dubai, it's more the opposite in fact...

To find out whether or not I liked Atlantis, I went to have a look and form an opinion, instead of relying on others....but I guess I am weird like that...

so...did you design it then....
