Dubai Hotel Recommendation

Hi I am looking for some advice for hotel accommodation in Dubai. I am planning my trip 1st week of January for approx 7 nights or last week in December 2017.

I went earlier this year to Dubai and stayed at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Bur Dubai. This was a great hotel for 5 key reason

1.Proximity to public transport (metro) - we were able to travel some evenings near Meena Bazaar for some food at Rangoli

2)Excellent Breakfast @ the hotel! The different cuisines available for breakfast and the number of choices for vegetarians. (Also the Indian Tea they served)

3) Chilled out location away from city life and noise pollution.

4)Excellent pool so we can relax and absorb the sun

5) Pleasant Spa

I would ideally like to stay at the Grand Hyatt hotel but it is far too expensive especially when I benchmark it against its other brand hotels and the price I paid in Jan 2017.

My maximum budget is approx £120 -£150 per night incl of tax

Would appreciate recommendations, would the other Hyatt hotel live up to similar expectations?

Thanks

Hi Niker,

The period u've selected, December/January is usually busy in Dubai, which might make the rates higher than normally.

Are you looking to stay in Bur Dubai this time as well or you are flexible?

Regards

Inaya

Hello Inaya,

Location is flexible, but provided we can access the metro easily via walking. 10-15min max walking distance.

We are even considering Abu Dhabi.

Grand hyatt has the huge bonus of it's pool - no other city hotel in Dubai has a pool anywhere near as big and you might find yourself slightly disappointed if you're trying to find a similar experience within your budget.

Have a look at the following hotels which may come within budget:

Hyatt Regency Creek Heights

Park Regis Krin Kin

Melia Dubai

Jumeirah Creekside may be over budget but worth a look as it's not far from the metro, in a less built up part of Dubai

Alternatively not near the metro but Crowne Plaza Festival City is a good 5* with an excellent pool deck and it's connected to a mall

From Crowne Plaza Festival city you can jump on the ferry, every 20 minutes, to Al Jadaf and easily access Creek metro station on the green line as it is almost next to the ferry station.

Just so you are aware there is no metro in Abu Dhabi
