Fodor's Expert Review Rove Downtown
312 Al Sa'ada St., Zabeel 2, Dubai, Dubai, United Arab Emirates Fodor's Choice
This funky budget accommodation by the Emaar group (The Address hotels) puts you close to the action; it's right across the street from the Dubai Mall and behind the DIFC, meaning plenty of shopping and dining is within walking distance. Rooms are stripped bare and fairly small, but modern and comfortable, with unexpected luxuries for a three-star hotel, including rainwater showers and designer beds. The public areas are quirky and contemporary, with an open, art-gallery feel, and there are unexpected services, such as public Playstations, locker rooms, and a laundry. There's also a reasonably priced attached restaurant, as well as a convenience store.
- close to great shopping and dining
- designer style and touches of luxury at three-star prices
- pool area is small
- taxis don't tend to come inside often, you may have to hail from the street
