A restaurant and lobby café, swimming pool, gymnasium, spa and beauty salon will also be included, according to a statement.
"As Dubai continues to develop and Expo 2020 nears, multiple districts with their own feel, geographic importance and accessibility emerge. Downtown Dubai is an area we’ve eyed for a while and I’m delighted that we will be able to add this vibrant and central location to our portfolio," said Andreas Mattmüller, chief operating officer of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, Middle East and Asia.
Its other six properties are located across Ibn Battuta Mall near Jebel Ali, Jumeirah Lakes Towers, Jumeirah Beach on The Walk, Bur Dubai, Deira and in Mamzar near Sharjah.
El Housein Limited, the owning company of Mövenpick Hotel Apartments Downtown Dubai, is also the owner of Mövenpick Hotel Les Berges Du Lac Tunis. Both properties are currently under construction, the statement said.
