Current Constructions in Downtown Dubai?

Hi all,

Me and my wife are set to travel to Dubai for 7 days in the very near future, and we prefer to stay in Downtown Dubai.

I have read posts from late 2017 that the construction situation near DAMAC Maison Mall street makes it really bad for hotel guests. This is one of the hotels we are considering, so if anyone here is near the area or is familiar with it, could you please chime in with your input?

How about Roda Al Murooj? Is it a convenient walk to/from Dubai Mall?

Thanks!

If it was my choice I’d opt for Roda Al Murooj or Rove Downtown or Al Manzil

All are close enough to walk to the mall

Hi

I live in downtown Dubai and the constructions works are still on going and is still not an ideal place for a tourist.

Around the down town area Roda Al Murooj and ROVE hotels gives you really good options to stay and they are walkable distance from Dubai mall (however it depends on the time as it will be very hot to walk outside in summer!)

Hey guys, thanks for the advise.

We've decided though to book at another DAMAC hotel nearby, and will just rely on shuttles and probably self drive to get around. We chose this hotel because it had kitchen amenities, which will be useful for a week's stay.

Also considering Sandeep's advise that it's too hot indeed to walk around outside these days in Dubai.

Thanks!

I was in Manzil hotel last week and it's close enough to Dubai Mall for the walk not to be a problem, even at this time of year.
