Rove Downtown Dubai

Dubai City, Dubai Beaches and beyond

Virgin rating

The hotel

Delivering photo ops of Burj Khalifa, Rove Downtown doesn’t just place you near this sky-piercing landmark, it’s also just a walk from The Dubai Mall, The Dubai Fountain, and attractions like Kidzania, Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo. In fact, as its name implies, it’s the perfect pied-a-terre for roaming around downtown Dubai. You can return to base to swim in its outdoor pool, unwind on its sun deck, or work out in its 24-hour gym. And, if you’re not dining out, FRIDAY’S features a fabulous fusion of Arabic, Western, Indian, and Southeast Asian dishes, along with weekend brunches (and takeaways if you’re eager to keep exploring). Being a ‘rover’s’ rest stop, it has plenty of handy essentials too, like the 24-hour laundromat, 24-hour boutique, and complimentary WiFi in your spacious room (which you get to stay in until 2:00pm on your last day).

Rove downtown is one of the best most convenient friendly hotels I ever came across. All the team members, Hossam, Nick, Lally, Jones, Ellaya and everyone is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is always clean and well situated in a walking distance to Dubai Mall as well as all parts of the city.

Even though is the smallest building in the area (and has 13 stories the same!) is in the center of the Dubai downtown. One can easily reach the Dubai Mall by feet (10 min walk, avoid noon time if you don’t want to burn) and the Burj Kalifa. The rooms are comfortable, with plenty of space, very very clean.

The bed is incredible and the sight is breathtaking. Everyone in the hotel stuff is super nice and there for any issue, questions or other necessities. Breakfast buffet is the best I’ve ever experienced, both the place and the food are awesome. In the end a very nice long weekend in Dubai. Read less

We came to Dubai for a two weeks family holiday and stayed at the Rove Downtown. It is about 25 minutes from the airport. The check-in process was quick and straight forward. Our room was a bit small but very clean and the room service was excellent. The hotel has a laundromat, a gym, a small pool and a movie theater. I would like to highly recommend Mrs Riany Dian at the travel desk. She gave us excellent advice as far as sight seeing and tourist attractions. She also booked our desert safari and day-trip to Abu Dhabi and Ferrari world. The hotel is centrally located. It is walking distance (about 10 minutes in a stifling heat) from the Dubai Mall (Fashion Avenue entrance) in which you'll find the Dubai Aquarium and can access the Burj Khalifah. The Mall of the Emirates and Ski Dubai are less than 20 minutes away in taxi. The Spice markets and Gold Souks in Old Dubai are about 25 minutes away in taxi. Overall, I highly recommend the Rove Downtown for budget travelers. Read less
