Located precisely at Al Maktoum International Airport – Dubai World Central (DWC), Aloft Dubai South offers easy access for transit or business travellers. This strategic location is also close to major Dubai attractions like Dubai Parks and Resorts, Expo Dubai 2020, and the Dubai Exhibition Center. For visits to downtown Dubai, about 40 minutes away, a more central hotel may be preferable.

The hotel also offers free parking and a limited shuttle service to Dubai South and Ibn Battuta Mall, as well as a shuttle to the DWC terminal on request.

The outdoor area is pleasant for meals or evening drinks by the pool. Two armchairs allow sunbathing with feet in the water, and a long graphic fresco, likely created by graffiti artists, adorns the wall.
