Dubai has developed a very glitzy and glamorous reputation for itself since it first began to develop and became a regional hub of business and tourism – but the desert metropolis is not just a playground for the rich and famous. If you want to immerse yourself in the fascinating local culture and see the city’s iconic sights without breaking the bank, check out HotelTravel.com’s comprehensive selection of budget accommodation in Dubai and take advantage of our helpful promotions.
For stylish 3 star accommodation in Bur Dubai opt for a suite at Citymax Hotel Bur Dubai, which is highly recommended by HotelTravel.com customers and occupies a prime location near several excellent local restaurants, while Dubai International Airport is just six kilometres away. In the upmarket Jumeirah Beach area the Chelsea Plaza Hotel Dubai is a chic modern 3 star hotel that provides sophisticated accommodation at affordable rates and is just two-minutes from the beach, while in Al Barsha you will find Citymax Al Barsha which boasts an excellent central location. The Mall of the Emirates and the Burj Khalifa are within easy reach and Sharaf DG Station is a short stroll from the hotel.
Despite being home to an assortment of 5 star hotels, exclusive nightclubs and, of course, the Burj Al Arab, Dubai is a relatively easy place to visit on a budget. Taxi fares are not exorbitant and you can purchase a metro day pass for a mere AED14, which is just under USD 4. Even sightseeing doesn’t have to bleed you dry; if you book in advance you can visit the Burj Khalifa for just AED100 (approximately USD 27) per person and desert safaris – including dinner and entertainment – can be booked for between AED200 and AED600.
You can also explore Old Dubai for free, paying only for any drinks or shisha you may purchase at a local café, and Dubai has two beautiful beach parks – Jumeirah and Al Mamzar – which can be entered for a mere AED 5. When it comes to shopping, peruse the cheap knock-offs at Karama, and for delicious low-cost meals head to one of the city’s many budget eateries such as Al Mallah on 2nd of December Street or Ravis Restaurant, located on Satwa Road, which serves tasty meals and cups of chai.
