    5* - Business AND Holiday, centrally located


    The Jumeirah Rotana Hotel might not be amongst the most well-known hotels in Dubai, but it has 5 stars and is tucked-away in a very central location...
    It is located on Diyafah Street, so you are basically a 2-min drive away from the beach, Jumeirah Mosque, etc.
    A 5-min drive will take you to Mercato Shopping Mall and other shopping destinations & cafes / restaurants along the Jumeirah Beach Road.
    A mere 10-15 min drive will get you into the heart of town: Bur Dubai, the Dubai Creek, Dubai Museum, etc.

    You get the picture: you may not be exactly on the beach but you're damn close! (and you may even some a bit of money due to that exact fact!)

    On their website, you can take a virtual tour of the rooms, pool area, etc.

    This really is a great little hotel that's suitable for business travellers & holiday makers alike.

    Some of the hotel's facilities include:
    > Dial-up Internet Connection.
    > Transit & Visit Visa arrangements.
    > Business Centre.
    > Outdoor Temperature Controlled Pool.
    > Fully-equipped Health and Fitness Centre.
    > Car Rental Desk.
    > 24-hours Currency Exchange.etc. etc. etc.....
    The service is friendly and professional, and the rooms are up to 5* standards.

    Unique Quality: The hotel is also the home of one of Dubai's most-loved nightspots: The Boston Bar, one of the greatest places for pub-grub, drinks & a merry, relaxed good time!And there's also one of the only 3 German restaurants in town: The Brauhaus (not very nice food, in my opinion).

"Omp-pa-pah"... German goodness!

by JessH about HOFBRAUHAUS Bavarian Restaurant

(Licensed - serves alcoholic beverages)

There are 3 German restaurants in Dubai, all adhering to the full cliche of Lederhosen, huge beers, rich food, cheesy decor and overpowering "omp-pa-pah" music.
Any German tourist would cringe, turn on his heels & run to save his sanity & dignity, but for expatriates like me originally from "good old Deutschland" - homesickness is our excuse for loving this Bavarian Hofbrauhaus.

Located inside the town square level of the JW Marriott Hotel the facade looks typically German, with the Bavarian blue&white-chequered curtains and wooden shutters.
There aren't many vegetarian options on the buffet but that's typical for German food. The Sauerkraut was excellent: not too sour, not too sweet. Elsewhere in the calorie-heavy selection John & our friends thoroughly enjoyed the various types of sausages (including Weisswurst!) & other beef & pork dishes. I was content with the complimentary buttery & chewy Brezeln, as well as "Rollmops" (pickled herring) from the salad buffet, creamy mashed potatoes, salads with gherkins and grilled leeks in cream sauce with big beans. I loved the particularly scrumptious Weissbier (30 Dhs for 1/2 litre) but they also have Lager (55 Dhs for 1 litre) that is indeed air-freighted from Germany - made by the original Hofbrauhaus brewery in Munich, which dates back to 1589.
(October 2010 Prices) Regular buffet costs Dhs 180. Buffet including unlimited wines and HB Beer is Dhs 365.- per person.

I rate this as the best German eatery in the city.
Despite the odd bland dish the food is excellent & plentyful, prepared by German chefs & is especially scrumptious during special buffet promotions.

I've visited many times before: call them to see on what nights you'll be treated to (or punished with) live music. After all, it's not always loud here! But during Oktoberfest, if you want to have a nice conversation, go somewhere else or don't complain - this is what Oktoberfest is like: loud, proud & silly!
After dinner, most patrons start singing traditional drinking & folk songs together with the big-bosomed Dirndl-duo, and dancing along is always encouraged. Don't take yourself too seriously and come to the Hofbrauhaus!

Opening Hours: Daily from 06:00pm-02:00am.

Other German restaurants:
> BRAUHAUS at Jumeirah Rotana Hotel (small, overpriced, mostly bad food).
> DER KELLER at Jumeirah Beach Hotel (expensive and yet not authentic)

Jumeira Rotana Hotel in Dubai

by zainfeb13

Hello to all!! Any feedback about Jumeira Rotana Hotel! I will be staying there for a week next week Jan 2004. How far is it from the main city centre (not the shopping centre) ??

How are the rooms ? comfort ? etc ??

Re: Jumeira Rotana Hotel in Dubai

by colin_bramso

It's a bit out of town, Jumaira is the beach suburb, which is a great location. Dubai is split into two "city centres" by the Creek. Deira and Bur Dubai are what the two sides of the Creek are called and you'll be on Bur Dubai side. Getting into the centre will be easy by taxi, or probably the hotel will have a courtesy car. Getting across the Creek is cheap and easy by "abbra" water taxi.

thanks for the reply. just pls tell me is there anything interesting near the hotel?? how far is the global village and festival site from the hotel >

Re: Re: Jumeira Rotana Hotel in Dubai

by colin_bramso

Well, Jumaira is a residential suburb, there are some shops and restaurants, the most beautiful mosque in Dubai, the beach. But it's mainly residential, so there's not a lot to see and do. The nearest is the suburb of Satwa, which is halfway to the city centre. It's only a short taxi ride into the city, a few kilometres.

Actually Jumeira Rotana Hotel isn’t in Jumeira, Al Diyafah Street. It’s in the heart of Dubai center (Not Deira.) and close to Burjuman Mall. There is a lot of restaurants around, and around 15 minutes to Deira City Centre. The Global Village is more far away, not sure of the distance though.

Re: Re: Jumeira Rotana Hotel in Dubai

by najamrulz

Global Village is not that far away from Deira City Centre. Its i guess just 5 minutes from there.

Well Zain i hope u had great time too. I also managed to get visa after coming back from maldives n sri lanka and enjoyed a lot in dubai. Atleast i assume you must have found a really nice digital camera coz there were so many superb deals going on. Happy travels!!
