The Business class lounge in Dubai is vast and has a similar feel to a motorway service station. There were plenty of seats available and a decent selection of drinks. A big minus is that there are not enough toilets available for the number of passengers.

I use this lounge when departing from Birmingham as I am a Gold Skywards Member. I find this lounge to be an excellent start to any trip with Emirates. It is large, spacious and the food on offer is always good. It ranges from snacks to hot or cold main meals with delicious desserts. A very adequate range of drinks is also on offer. The staff are extremely courteous and service is efficient and unobtrusive.

Very disappointing to be honest. The seating and service from staff was great but, like the business class lounge at this airport it was very noisy because the general concourse and duty free area on the floor below is open to both first and business class lounges in the centre and the noise travels up and in. The food was marginally better than the business class lounge but to get toast and butter you had to go into the dining room, sit, wait to be served and then wait for the toast. All a bit over the top. Toilets and showers were exactly the same as in the business class lounge. Champagne was a little better I was told but the diet coke tasted just the same.

Gate B lounge an extremely busy lounge even at midnight. Due to its design it was hard to see where empty seats were located so literally sat down in the first one I came to which wasn't particularly that comfortable. It was near a bar though and the staff there were very efficient in serving you. Empty glasses/bottles quickly cleared away by the waiting staff. I couldn't see where to get proper food so can't comment on that one. Toilets kept very clean and tidy. Good speed for wifi also. Gate A lounge a much better design/layout than its Gate B counterpart. While still busy there did seem to be a choice of seating available. Easy to see where food was being served and the breakfast items were ample. Staff here seemed to be going for efficiency than friendly. Unfortunately I couldn't get connected to the lounge wifi but managed to get connected to the general airport wifi for 30 precious minutes. Toilets spotlessly clean.

I look forwards to visiting the Emirates lounge in Zurich Airport. Long walk but excellent food and wine. Average sized lounge but long trek to find it - however it is near the usual gate. One of the best lounges I have experienced. What a shame that they do not just buy a wifi modem and offer a decent service rather than that provided by the airport.

Emirates Lounge in Hong Kong is small but never seems too crowded. Excellent choice of food, hors d'oeuvres, etc. Soft drinks, beers, Champagne, wine. And the staff will make up a sandwich for you if you wish. HKG doesn't have fast track for business class. But not a problem. The problem with HKG is the arrival. Didn't check showers or wifi.

Absolutely appalling. Very disappointing to find that Emirates is associated with this lounge. There is hardly any food except a small bowl of salad or a stale sandwich. Is this really the service we expected when choosing business class with one of the so called top airlines of the world? Makes you think about booking Emirates again.

Business Class lounges in Concourse C - clean, luxurious, superb service, excellent amenities, great food, wine, drinks and juices. The new Business Class Lounge in Concourse A is a mega lounge with several mini-lounges and integrate boarding gates within the mini-lounges. Concourse A is for the use of A380s and has 25 gates. While there is a main dining and lounge area, the idea is really to go to the mini-lounge area closest to your gate. Each mini-lounge has a wonderful spread of food, drinks, coffee machines, wines etc. The food is great. Four vegetarian and four non-vegetarian options, and salads, breads and appetizers. There is a place to take a shower and it has all the amenities. There is also a Timeless Spa [paid I think]. The lounge is designed to seat close to 2000 people.

It seems there is a new lounge under construction in the B terminal. The temporary lounge is a hot mess. It is just a section of the upper floor of the airport that has been blocked off to give a pretence of a lounge. It is loud (constant airport-wide announcements.) hot, poor ventilation, and messy. The staff are spread out over too large an area, and cannot cope with the scope of effort required. Dirty plates, cups, and tables abound, but the seat-hungry business traveler doesn't care, and takes any port in a storm. Emirates should have brought on extra staff, but chose not to. The staff are friendly, but management is asking too, too much. The lounge in the A terminal is in good repair, and should be used instead of the B terminal. Waiting at the actual gate is more relaxing.

Sprawling lounge with excellent food and drink, but it was crowded even at midnight. Major design flaw in that the designated "quiet zone", packed with lounges and beds, is the noisiest part of the lounge with very loud announcement speakers and noise from the terminals below. Very difficult to get any sleep in the lounge, even after midnight.

What a Dungeon! Never expected this from Emirates. To pay almost 8500K on a ticket and to be thrown in a lounge that has no natural lighting, is overcrowded with limited selection of food and drink is disgraceful. One bite of a sandwich that was stale, and we packed up and walked out. We felt much better sitting around like randoms in the general airport area.

Still a few teething problems but they are trying hard. Signage is difficult to find, so everyone has stopped at the first seating area, which is packed - while the rest of the lounge is quite empty. Also the constant boarding announcements for flights departing other parts of the airport are bit annoying - they should only announce flights in Concourse A. The lounge "looks" great, but is a bit style over function. For example tables are difficult to sit and eat at, chairs not too comfy.

Citibank and AMEX offer the use of this lounge as a benefit to having their cards, but it isn't much of a benefit when you can't find a seat to sit in. I have used this lounge in the past and it has been pretty handy. The last time we couldn't find anywhere to sit- not that it bothered the staff at all. People often hold empty seats for others with their cabin luggage that remain empty for hours. Other people use it as a hotel and sleep on two chairs. The Wifi doesn't work very well although there are some computers there that are popular. The food and beverages on offer are pretty good, but the one shower needs a makeover and there seems to be corrosive gunk on all the fittings in the washroom that really should have been taken care of years ago. The furniture has taken a moderate beating and has been there since day one. The concept is great, but it has become a victim of it's own success needing refurbishment, enlargement and some better standards.

The Dubai Business Class lounge is not big enough for the number of passengers using it, so it is difficult to find a seat. There are long queues for the toilets. If you have more than a couple of hours in the lounge then it feels a lot, lot longer as the seats are not good for relaxing, with very few foot stools. The food options are limited. At least there is free Wi-Fi.

This shared lounge is very poor. Although there is enough space (a small room allocated to Emirates First Class) the food and drink selection is small. Food is not made to order and runs out quickly. This lounge is shared by so many airlines and card holders that it does not feel special. As a First Class passenger, I feel the old lounge shared with South African Airways was so much better. Sadly this has now closed.

Quiet, comfortable and relaxing. A good variety of hot and cold food and excellent selection of beverages. It is enhanced by the fact that all of the EK flights from Gatwick are B777s (rather than A380s) meaning that there will never be more than 40 people in there at any one time. The reception staff are helpful and wait until the queue at the departure gate has cleared before calling the flight, meaning that you can leave the lounge and get straight on to the plane.

This is the best lounge I have been to in Australia/New Zealand, there is very little to fault, apart from the distance from customs/immigration. Great food with enormous selection of both hot and cold choices and friendly but unobtrusive service. Good selection of reading material. Natural light and views of the tarmac and gates, with very comfortable decor. Bathrooms top notch. with great amenity kits and more than adequate business facilities. Added bonus of being able to board your flight direct from the lounge.

The first time I have used this new lounge and a great improvement from the shared lounge that Emirates used before. The lounge is not that easy to find. It is located near the arrival desks on the left hand side via a lift to the 3rd floor. Once found it is clean, only thing missing is a smoking area. Food excellent but limited choice of drinks, but for Sri Lanka this is heaven, and compared to the shared lounge is a real treat. Staff friendly and helpful.

Use the lounge about twice a month. It is now becoming apparent that it is not First Class. The wooden furniture is damaged (chipped and scratched) and the upholstered furniture dirty and worn. It is very noisy with all the announcements from the departure hall below, and this lounge must have the worst wifi on the planet. The staff are friendly and helpful, and selection of food and beverages are generally good. However, I found the Lounge in T1 (currently closed) far more superior, giving a much greater feeling of elegance, privacy and exclusivity. It is much smaller, with almost no sound interferences.

Excellent facility well worth using except why are the showers outside the Lounge? And why are the toilets separate from the showers ? You have to exit and walk quite a way before locating the Shower Room (which, frankly, could do with sprucing up).

Probably the dirtiest lounge I have ever been to, even touching the fridge door to get a drink was unpleasant. The carpets are dirty, the available cutlery not clean, tables were not wiped, old plates with dried food and drinks everywhere. Rubbish baskets overflowing. A soup was available some time during the day but the dish was practically empty with dried left over in and around it. A couple of sandwiches in plastic, and some apples. Coffee, no tea. Water and coke and 2 more soft drinks were available. Toilets smell bad, broken and only one had a bit of toilet paper.

Visited the business class lounge at Dubai T3 six times this year. Its becoming very crowded. The food is quite good, beverage selection was fine, the toilets were atrocious. One time the lights were out and I had to que up. Added to that the showers were so crowded I had to stand for nearly a hour; I decided not to shower. They need more shower rooms and toilets to make this a haven of rest.

Entered lounge about midnight, only a few people in lounge with plenty of very comfortable sofas and seating, the ambience was good. Had a free massage which was very invigorating. Food and wine were excellent with very attentive staff. On return leg, had an excellent meal with very good wines and champagne. The lounge was very warm, unlike first visit where temperature was perfect. The temperature that day was almost 50 degrees so suspect air con was having trouble keeping up!

This is an enormous lounge with zoned eating and lounge areas. Food and drink of all descriptions is available from a number of "buffets" with quantity and quality excellent. There are some quiet areas but there is a "buzzy" feel due to the large number of passengers coming and going all the time. Wash rooms were maintained well. However the showers were disappointing. A little cramped and lacking toiletries.

A comfortable tranquil area with dining area and lounge seating. The food and drink offering is exceptional ranging from tea and biscuits to a 5 course meal with wines and champagne if you have the appetite! A selection of newspapers and magazines. Wash rooms nothing special but adequate.

A lounge shared with several airlines including Emirate. Club type seating, business area and dining area. English language Sri Lankan newspapers available. My visit was at breakfast time and the food offering was poor in comparison to other Emirates lounges. Wash rooms clean and fresh.

The lounge opens only 3 hrs prior to the only flight that serves the airport per day, which is standard. The lounge's decoration is a bit bland due to Emirates color scheme, something they may have problem with with the current brand identity but that is okay. The couches are not very comfortable. The back rest is a little too low, compromising privacy and the spacing between them are a bit awkward as well. However, the food selection is great with options of cold and hot servings. The lounge staff are extremely attentive, and always come and ask if we need any help. The variety of alcohol drinks are great as well.

Awful lounge. Crowded, hot, sweaty, long queues for showers, and you need a shower after going in the lounge. You're better off staying outside in the main concourse and that's saying something for a cramped and busy airport like Dubai.

This is a pay-per-use lounge which is pretty good. The capacity is limited however. There is Wifi (not fast but adequate), a good 24-hour menu, drinks, coffee. No showers though. Outbound they had a deal with Mastercard allowing gratis use of the facilities - on the return, the deal seemed to have expired and replaced with an Amex version. If you have a long stopover, it's well worth the investment of about USD46.

I agree the lounge at T3 can be a bit of a zoo. Most passengers, predictably, use the first food and beverage station immediately after entering the lounge. If you continue towards the end of the lounge, it's less crowded. Found the food selection quite good. Lounge staff worked rather well.

The food / beverage offer is disappointing : only a buffet with sandwiches and soup. No main dishes. The beverage offer is better but lounge is dry during night hours. The service is not up to standard, announcements for flights are done by staff walking around and shouting out the details. The lounge is overcrowded.

Emirates Lounge at Terminal 3 is not up to the standard expected. Lounge in Terminal 1 is much more relaxing, quieter, friendly staff plus a good selection of food & beverages. I always use this lounge as I cannot stand the main cattle-market lounge at Terminal 3.

Possibly the worst and most dilapidated lounge I have ever experienced. The food is substandard there is one hot option on offer. Besides the bar there are beer bottles on the floor and there has been no cleaning / table clearing. Beyond the food facilities, the smoking area is not insulated from the non-smoking sections of the lounge. WIFI internet access is available in 15 minute blocks and VPNs for corporate use are not available. All of the computers in the lounge are giving Microsoft warnings for being non Genuine copies of Windows. The lounge is poorly lit, air vents are blackened and there is tape hanging from the wall. The door was unattended on my arrival and no welcoming / check-in.

We checked into the lounge at Dubai, waited for our flight to be called, but it never was. 25 minutes before the scheduled departure time we rushed for the gate - reached the gate 12 minutes before departure, but they would not let us board. Our bags had to be offloaded, which would have taken a lot longer than letting us on the flight. We had to re-book our flight, and they charged us A$150 re-booking fee. The flight was never called in the lounge and we were not paged. I have never encountered such poor service in any Business Class lounge anywhere in the world. With Emirates, Business Class is obviously 2nd Class.

We have used this lounge many times, each time you hope it will get better, but it seems to get worse. Showers inadequate, toilets a disgrace with queues up to 10 waiting for a cubicle (for both sexes). Its becoming just a holding area with refreshments.

Not a business class lounge by any stretch of the imagination. Had to spend 7 hours in it overnight. It was quite empty when we arrived but still not enough loungers to try and grab some sleep. Got some eventually - loungers that is not sleep. Had to go in search of blankets and even with two it was chilly. Whoever thought it was a good idea to put the quiet sleeping area directly above a security check area with metal rollers clattering all night long needs sacking. I would have expected an airline in its home base to have a showcase lounge.
