“2nd stay was just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

I have stayed here before (October 2011 for 4 nights ) and enjoyed the hotel, the area outside is a bit run down with little to do in the immediate vicinity. However, I returned here for 1 night and requested/paid for an early check in as I had arrived from a nighttime flight. I was left to wait for my room in the lobby for close to 2 hours, the receptionist was polite and apologetic. As a non smoker, I obviously requested a non smoking room. When I finally got my room, it stank of stale smoke and I mentioned it to the bell boy who assured me he would let reception know and would send someone up to spray the room. Never happened. The rooms are fine, dark furnishings and bathroom meets expectations. Reception staff are very polite and friendly though and concierce staff very attentive.

Room Tip: Stay at Traders Hotel opposite instead - much superior

When you are welcome at 2:00 AM on your arrival with a free upgrade to Executive Suite, you get immediately a smile on your face. But when all the staff is adorable with you, then it becomes really nice.
What else: great breakfast in the executive lounge upstairs, top gym club with the latest from TechnoGym, free access to the Oceana Beach Club that we enjoyed for a full day, excellent dining room service...
Well, let's be frank... We didn't find anything negative to say. A special thank to the Front desk and Concierge personel: you are really customer friendly.
A place that I recommend to anyone!

I love to review a hotel when there is absolutely nothing to criticise! The hotel just a few minutes walk from the Metro, close to the airport (AED 20 with taxi to the airport, add AED 25 FROM the airport). Staff is very friendly and helpful (Fabian, as mentioned before, is a wonder of knowledge. It's also nice to find a staff that speak your own language; Linnea from Sweden). The pool is a nice place to spend some hours. Well, here I find one thing that could be approved. Make the area 'No smoking', or just let some part be aloud for smoking.
Well be back, that's for sure!

Room Tip: The extra cost for Excecutive rooms is well worth the price (if you have the time to use the facilit...

I have stayed in a few hotels in Deira, but this one is the best so far for location, service, quality of rooms and everything about it was excellent. We stayed in an executive suite with access to the executive lounge - wow - it was so spacious and clean, and the service and welcome from all the staff was amazing. 4 members of staff really stood out - Krish, Linnea, Badawy and Rodel - an absolute credit to Movenpick. I would stay here again no doubt. The rooms were very clean, service was superb, breakfast was great. I could not fault this hotel on anything. The only thing that was a bit niggly was the hotel wifi kept disconnecting every so often. But apart from that, a truly fantastic hotel with some fantastic staff.

It's a city hotel, but very convenient in any point. The staff is exceptionally polite and helpful starting at the doorman and ending with the room attendants ! Check in runs quickly, friendly, professional, yet with a personal touch. Rooms are equipped with modern furniture, a big flat- TV set, good beds for a fine sleep. Rooms are not really outstanding big for Dubai but really sufficient. Bathroom equipped with bathtub and shower and anything you need. You will not be disturbed by any noise from the hotel's floor or other rooms, but the metro running in front of the house and the aircraft taking off across the hotel can be heard. However, I personally did not feel disturbed. Breakfast is a feast with fresh eggs prepared, lots of fresh bread, slads, fruit, some asian food...and splendid coffee!It was our third stay here, so you can see, I would recommend this one. Furthermore, if you don't want to rely on the stuck traffic situations: the metro station is three minutes by foot.
