TOP 4 Best Hotels in Dubai from Budget-friendly to VIP Options: Tips for Choosing

1 Feb 2021

When choosing a hotel in Dubai, consider the focus of this city for business, sightseeing, and shopping. This nuance literally affects the entire hospitality industry. For example, beach complexes with a huge territory, a water park, and “All Inclusive” food in Dubai can be counted on the fingers of one hand. But there are a lot of city hotels, for every taste and budget.

How to Choose a Hotel in Dubai: Peculiarities

There are some nuances of planning your vacation you should pay attention to:

  • The presence of a swimming pool in Dubai hotels is a secondary thing. Double-check the information! Even in expensive five-star city hotels, the pools are often rooftop and very small.

  • The hallmark of a good hotel is the temperature-controlled swimming pool. Summer in Dubai is too hot (up to + 45 °C during the day and not lower than + 35 °C at night), Because the water is too warm, swimming in the sea is very unpleasant. A cooling pool saves and still helps to avoid heatstroke.
  • Check the amount of a deposit and taxes before booking a tour! The amount of the deposit is determined by each hotel individually. The amounts can be cosmic. So, be careful! Otherwise, you risk running out of money already at the beginning of your holiday.
  • Walking distance to the sea is possible only in the Marina and Jumeirah regions. Deira, Al Barsha, Bar Dubai, and other areas are located far from the sea, so a transfer to the beaches at least twice a day is essential!

Budget-friendly Hotels in Dubai

Most of such are located in the districts of Deira, Al Barsha, as well as near the Mall of the Emirates. To reach the beaches, you need to go either by hotel transfer or independently by city buses.

Ibis Al Rigga 2*

It is located in the Deira district on a busy street with lots of shops and cafés. Al Rigga Metro Station is 300 meters away. Free shuttle service to Al Mamzar Beach is provided once a day. Breakfast is usual — a standard buffet style: various pastry, fruits, fresh vegetables, cereals. There is no pool! No deposit either.

Comfort Inn 3*

It combines everything that a tourist will need. First, a shuttle service is provided to Al Mamzar beach (5 AED in both directions). Secondly, it is the most tourist center: it is only 5 minutes walk to the Union metro station, where both metro stations intersect; to the Abra station — 15 minutes. The excellent shopping center Al Ghurair (where there are frequent sales) and Al Rigga boulevard are located almost opposite.
