Listen up backpackers, urban explorers, young professionals, travellers and the like. We need to talk! So, there’s a new a hotel in Dubai and I have been meaning to visit Rove Hotels in Downtown Dubai for such a long time since I have heard about its opening a few months ago. Rove Hotels is a collab between the leading global property developers in UAE – Emaar and Meraas. They will soon open their next hotels in Jafiliya and Deira, adopting its design and interiors to its environment. The downtown one is its first. The awesome thing about it is the concept, the new clashes beautifully with the old. It is urban contemporary with a twist of arabesque interior. It is hip, young and trendy – you will find so many hashtags on the wall, stationaries, pens, paper cups, etc., living up to its millenial image. Atworks and paintings done by local artists can be seen everywhere and just before you take the lift on your left side is the locker area, where you can leave your stuff while you roam around the city and collect it before your flight or before u leave the city. Parking is very spacious.
I am a big fan of huge spaces and windows, white walls and minimalism. The moment I stepped in their hotel, I told myself – this is it, I can identify to it immediately!
It offers a lot of cool new features and amenities, such as the Noor Alhaya Laundry, it is a 24 hour self service laundromat – the first of its kind here in Dubai. It made me want to hang and chill in this room. So good, it made me visited it twice. Also, it smells so good and clean!
On the Mezzanine Floor – you will find their unique, fresh and colorful meeting rooms. Following their concept of self service, the meeting rooms can be arranged by yourselves according to the setup that suits you best.
The Pitstop is an area where you can have your casual meeting or just hang with your colleagues and work together.
The prayer rooms are on this floor as well as their swimming area and the gym.
I was booked in a 01 Rover room for one night. The room was clean and simple and it had a huge window but get this – my room’s view was really spectacular! It was facing the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall. WiFi is also free. So, if you ever feel like exploring around downtown, this hotel is the best choice for it!
The Daily is the place to be when you need to unwind and dine. I highly recommend their best seller, The Energizer – their green and refreshing smoothie packed with energy boosting celery and green apple. Also, this is where The Bench Brunch happens every weekend, AED 99 per person.
As their tagline goes, “There’s no place like ROVE.”
