Hotel Crush: Rove Hotel, Downtown Dubai
Dubai is known for it's futuristic skyscrapers, luxury shopping options and of course, lavish hotels. While everyone dreams of staying in a fancy hotel with grand views while visiting Dubai, their budget may not agree. If you want beautiful views of the city without the expensive price tag, Rove Downtown Dubai may be for you!
Opened earlier this year, Rove is a chic, yet affordable option for urban explorers that love the city life. The low price/high quality rooms give modern travelers a first-class experience that won't break the bank.
The spacious rooms are flooded with natural light and come with free high-speed WIFI, a 48- inch flat screen, tons of outlets and USB ports and a sleek rain shower. The only setback is that irons are not in the room. If you call the front desk and ask though, they will send one up that you can keep for the remainder of your stay.
The hotel is conveniently located just minutes from the Dubai Mall (the largest mall in the world in case you didn't know) and offers breathtaking views of the city. For an additional cost (that's completely worth it) you can upgrade to a room with views of the world's tallest building, better known as the Burj Khalifa.
When it comes to lunch time, delicious food is only an elevator ride away. The Daily Downtown Dubai, Rove's in-house market-style restaurant, offers a full menu of globally-inspired food, refreshing drinks and snacks. In Dubai, the weekends start on Friday, so brunch is THE thing to do to jumpstart your day. For 99 AED ( approximately $26) The Daily offers an over-the-top midday feast known as The Bench Brunch that consists of a full buffet of meats, cheeses, yogurts, fresh juices, breads, pastries and desserts, as well as a main entree and the drink of your choice. Brunch is served every Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. and can be enjoyed inside, or outside on the amazing patio that has gorgeous daytime views of The Burj Khalifa.
Rove's inexpensive, travel-friendly vibe is a relatively new concept in a city known for its pricey, extravagant hotels. It's funky decor, helpful staff and prime location make it a fantastic option for chic and adventurous travelers that love stylish accommodations without the hefty price tag.
