We stayed at Movenpick Bur Dubai on a family holiday in March 2012. We were initially skeptical about the location as everyone we know suggested we stay on Shiek Zaid Road or Bur Dubai. This hotel is in Oud Metha area which is a nice quite area of Bur Dubai. As we were arriving early in the morning, we requested for an early chk-in which was not confirmed, hence we had to book the rooms for an extra night.....which actually turned out to be a good idea....!!
Chk-In : The Check-in was a breeze as we were booked from the previous night....as one of room was with an extra bed...we had been automatically upgraded to the club floor at no extra charge. The staff at reception were nice and we were assisted to our rooms with-in 10min of arriving to the hotel.
Breakfast & Club Floor : The club floor where our rooms were had an exclusive lounge which served us breakfast, evening tea and free cocktails (limited time in the evening). I must say that the breakfast served at the club lounge was not as good as that served in the main restaurant. The choices were limited and the poor lady serving us had to run around for even eggs to order to the main restaurant....which was annoying. We finally choose to eat in the main restaurant for the rest of the stay. The breakfast otherwise was really nice....one of the best I have !! The staff was extremely courteous and the kids were well pampered.
Rooms: They were nice, big spacious....as per international standards. The bed was comfy, bathrooms were spic and span and well appointed. The mini bar adequately stocked.....and I must say that we were very comfortable with two adults and two kids. I must say that the rooms didin't have any views to write about !!
Around the Hotel: The Movenpick Ice creams were always around us which was great for kids....they must have tried 50% of the menu in the 4 night stay. As for a coffee addict like me, the Starbucks in the hotel premise was the best thing that could have happened to me !! It opens till late and a great place to relax after long hectic days...!!
Food for Indians : The hotel has one of the well known Indian restaurant in Dubai. My parents ate there and were truly impressed with the food and service. According to them, the food was better then in most places in India. Its a must try for the food, ambience and the service.....!! Within 5 mins walk is Sarvana Bhawan Restaurant that serves authentic pure veg food all day. Its a well known brand in India and is good for south indian breakfast or high tea. They also serve pure veg lunch and dinners. There is Moti Mahal Deluxe two shops down the road which is again a well know resturant chain in India serving Mughali Food.
I even saw a chinese and a lebanese restaurant......which sums up the various choices for food one has around this hotel.
Night Club : One of the most popular night club which is really popular with the affluent indian community is the same premise. Its called "Pulse".... and were there on the Holi Special night....and boy was it happening !! I felt right at home and felt like I was partying in Delhi somewhere. This is NO cheap pick-up joint unlike elsewhere in Dubai !!
Location: Dubai is not really a big place and you are not far from any place staying at this hotel.....Taxi is cheap and readily available outside the hotel. I truly recommend this hotel for families and especially Indian who love to stick to Indian food in any part of the world !!
