Cheap Hotels – Dubai

Quickly becoming one of the world’s top holiday destinations, Dubai has built a reputation from its real estate and incredible tourist industry. Because of this unprecedented success, there is a growing demand for cheap hotels. Dubai already has a high calibre of world renowned top quality hotels which need no introduction, however, those which are low cost like any other holiday destination are also required. If you have the budget to stay in luxury accommodation then great, but in general, most people will tend to stay somewhere less plush. Dubai has many affordable hotels that also have fantastic service at a fraction of the cost. Generally, if you want to find cheap hotels, places to avoid are the New Dubai areas such as Jumeirah where prices are always high as this is the business district. The sheikh Zayed Road area near the marina are also discouraged as this is prime real estate.

Low cost hotels can be found in areas such as; Deira, Bur Dubai and Al Satwa. Deira is home to a large population of migrant workers but this is a strategically good location as this is a short walk to the gold souk and Dubai Creek. Because Dubai is virtually crime free, it is relatively safe to travel at any time of the day or night although one must exercise caution as you would anywhere in the world. If you want to stay in Dubai then definitely check out Deira as a {[low cost| cheaper]} option. Hotels to check out are the Le Meridien in Deira which aren’t to dear. It may be a good idea to stay in the vicinity of Bani Yas square region. Most of these hotels will be very basic accommodation but it is a lively place day and night. If you want something an echelon higher then the Creek is where you will get a better quality and standard of accommodation. An example is the Hilton on Dubai Creek which is a 5 star outfit or the Grand Hyatt. If you are a fan of fine dining then you will also find Chef Gordon Ramsey’s restaurant here.

Bur Dubai is slightly different to Deira, it is a buzzing little area which is home to a large Indian migrant population (mostly from Karela). It is close to shopping malls such as Ibn Batuta Mall, and is about a 10 minute drive to Jumeirah. It has a fantastic market called ‘Mina Bazaar’ which specialises in clothing that you can get at good prices with many cheap hotels in Bur Dubai that you will be able to find. The include places like the Le Meridien Sandos and also Golden Sands apartments.

Hotels in Al Satwa should really be on the bottom of the list unless you are on a very tight budget. Although the area runs parallel to Sheikh Zayed Road, it is the area which is considered to be the main place where migrant workers stay. There are many good places to eat in Al Satwa although tourists very rarely stay here as it deemed to be quite rough.

Before you book any cheap hotels in Dubai do your research. It is advised to read hotel reviews where you may potentially be staying just to ensure there are no surprises when you arrive. Because nightclubs are not really allowed in Dubai since it is a Muslim country, you may find that there are bars or discos integrated within the hotels so be sure to check out the reviews before making a decision.

Wherever you stay in the Emirate, you will be pleased to know that there are many cheap hotels to be found. The best deals are in the off-peak season which is in the summer, between April and September where you will be able to get some bargains on flights and accommodation. If you do decide on going in these months then be prepared to hit soaring temperatures in their 40s.
