The 216-room hotel - Deira's first international five-star
property for more than ten years, is situated in the commercial district on
the north side of Dubai Creek.

The hotel is less than three minutes' walk from a Metro
station and fifteen minutes by car from Dubai International Airport, whilst
offering easy access to many of Dubai's traditional landmarks such the Spice
and Gold Souqs, as well as six golf courses all less than 25 minutes away.

Michael Nugent, the hotel's general manager said the property
is filling a demand for affordable upscale accommodation in Deira from

hospitality sector has been somewhat stagnant and we mean to bring in new
energy," he said.

property in the city offering the latest in efficiency and comfort'. The
hotel incorporates an executive floor as well as 25 suites.

For private events, the hotel is thoughtfully equipped with
seven dedicated rooms for corporate meetings and social functions for up to
90 guests - all with natural daylight.

Meanwhile, instant Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel's public
areas, backed up by around-the-clock support from the Business Services

The Moevenpick Hotel Deira offers three dining options. Jigsaw
features a la carte and a buffet selection 'with a difference'. Wok In's
intention is to represent the spirit of the Far East with interactive cooking
taking place 'centre stage' in the contemporary Asian restaurant. Wok In Bar
has its sights set on being a sought-after local rendezvous and features live

Fitness is not forgotten and the hotel has a rooftop pool and
a well-equipped gym. Guests also enjoy access to the private beach and
facilities at the Oceana Beach Club on The Palm Jumeirah, less than 25
minutes away by complimentary hotel shuttle.

The Moevenpick Hotel Deira is one of four projects in Dubai
from Moevenpick Hotels & Resorts and real estate developer, Seven Tides,
alongside the 396-room Ibn Battuta Gate.
