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.
