“GREAT hotel, one of the best I have ever stayed at, but location not ideal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

The first thing that happend was that we received a free upgrade to an executive room which was sooo nice, big and cream. Free wine (shiraz, i.e not bad at all), drinks and finger food every evening and free afternoon tea with cake buffet every afternoon. The service was great, everyone was smiling allthroughout the week. The location isnt the best but then again, you need to take a cab everywhere in Dubai so it didnt matter. Metro station was also just a couple of minutes away. The beachclub (shuttle going there for free) is sooo nice with an amazing view over the skyline from the infinity pool . If someone from Mövenpick is reading this, thank you so much for this, you should really be happy with all that great staff, especially the man working in the entrance (from Kenya) was so helpful!

Far from the beach and of course no view, nevertheless it is conviniet if you are in Dubai for a conference or meeting, and still you can go to the the hotel private beach ( by free shuttle). Friendly staff, spacious rooms with clean bathrooms. Breakfast was not great, and dinner can be improved. Gym and swimming pool are convinient and clean. Very close to the hotel there is a pharmacy, iraninian resturant and there is a 24h supermarket across the street.

Room Tip: do not expect a room with a view

I Was with my wife and my daughter (she is 9 years) from 6 to 16 November 2012. Let's go just to see the country, to travel. The hotel first through the tour operator «Natalie-Tour» was paid for a Superior room. When we arrived the room we had seemed very small for 3 persons. Asked at the reseption show what is more rooms in the hotel. Very sympathetic girl her name is Jackie (she is from Kenya) showed me and my daughter all the room types in the hotel. After that, as we liked the Suite, she immediately extended our Superior to the number of the Suite on the first floor with a very big discount at a surcharge. The day after we were tired of living on the first floor are very noisy (the Windows overlook the busy intersection and subway line, as well as on the landing of planes), in addition to the room until we probably smoked (wife does not tolerate the smell of smoke) and I asked for a room higher up. Jackie walked back with me to show the other rooms. On the 6th floor in the room was also full of smoke and we have stopped the choice on the 5th floor. …Then while we were in the city on the tour all our stuff (including and not Packed in suitcases) was moved into another room.
Advantages of the hotel:
- good new facilities and furnishings
- high-quality service in hotel
- very high quality work of the system of ventilation and air-conditioning. When fully closed Windows and balcony door in the room has always been a powerful inflow of fresh clean air, despite a very dusty air in the street
- free Internet access throughout the hotel (in the room and even on the roof of the pool)
- maid service 2 times per day
- in room: an electric kettle with a set for tea, and coffeemaker mashine with capsules for preparation of the 2nd types of coffee. 2 big flat TVs, good bathroom equipment.
- high-quality diverse food in the restaurant. By the way comparing prices in different restaurants in the city - we thought the price/quality of the hotel is optimal.
- convenient location: near metro and buses, close to shops
Disadvantages:
- noisy from the street, the planes, metro, crossroad. However glazing Windows are good. With the Windows closed and the curtains noise is almost not heard. We just used to live with the Windows open and we were a bit strained the need to close the Windows and blinds. (This is so, rather nitpicking).
Especially I want to note the presence at the reseption (though, unfortunately for half a day) Russian-speaking person.
Special gratitude for the sensitivity and high quality work of Express employees in the reseption: Jackie - she is from Kennya, Yana - she is from Russia and Linne'a.
Also I want to note the very high quality of work of cooks in the main restaurant.
Wish the hotel:
- it is necessary to allocate a room for smokers and non-smokers!

Room Tip: the higher the room the better, purer, better than the view from the window

I stayed here on a leisure trip with family but sincerely got a feel that its a place for business travellers. The family ambience is missing. Otherwise the services are very good. Didn't enjoy the buffet breakfast but meals were good. The location is also very good for a business traveller. Its value for money.

I just used this hotel for transit so I only stayed a few hours (flight out at 2 a.m.) However, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was, as usual for Dubai, luxurious and well appointed. It was conveniently located for the airport and there were restaurants nearby.

We had an overnight stay at the Movenpick Deira.
We arrived early at the hotel (08:00am), although the booking said the earliest check in was at 14:00, the receptionist went out of her way to accommodate us as best as she could. No rooms were immediately available, but she gave us access to the pool & gym facilities, until a room was ready for us a few hours later.
Our room was large, very clean, modern with a King size bed that was the most comfortable sleep I've had in ages. The hotel is located in the down-town part of Dubai, with easy access to the shopping malls, and most attractions.
We had the breakfast buffet, which offered a wide range of hot and cold food, and was pretty good.
We used the bar at the hotel, but found it to be a bit soulless and dark.
The pool is on the roof of the hotel, which is excellent if you are a plane spotter, as its almost under the Dubai flight path. The pool area is quite small with limited sun loungers, but we enjoyed it for the couple of hours we were there.
Overall, for the reasonable price of the room, cleanliness, comfort and central location, I would highly recommend this hotel. If you are looking for a hotel for primarily leisure facilities, better look at the Jumeirah beach hotels.
