A landmark destination in the heart of Dubai, attached to WAFI Mall, hotel Sofitel Dubai The Obelisk will soon open its doors for travelers.

Located in Dubai's Oud Metha, the iconic building is adorned with a gold pyramidion and in the shape of an obelisk, representative of the Luxor Obelisk currently in Paris.

The hotel will have 498 luxurious rooms and 97 furnished serviced apartments.

The hotel rooms and suites are located as of the 19th floor, offering floor-to-ceiling windows with an abundance of natural light and unparalleled views, including old Dubai, creek, harbor, and the iconic city skyline.

The hotel will have five restaurants, including signature eateries Daniel Boulud's Brasserie Boulud, Taiko – a sister restaurant to the award-winning venue in Amsterdam by Chef Schilo Van Coevorden – and The Nine, a British gastropub. Brasserie Boulud is to open in October and Taiko is scheduled to open in November.
