So, after numerous posts about hotels, I've narrowed it down to two. I PROMISE this will be my last hotel post!!!
These are my two choices along with the things I like and my concerns.. (I've mentioned my concerns because for those of you who have been already may be in a better position to advise me if they should be of concern or not :))
Again, just a little reminder - these are end of June rates.
IBN Battuta #20 - 600 AED/night room only, 766.50 AED/night room plus breakfast - both triple rooms (booking via hotel). I'm loving the decor of this hotel, it seems amazing, my concerns: distance to the things id like to do (taxi costs) and not getting a good view from room.
Al murooj #49 - 202 CAD/night room only - classic king room (booking via agoda). I'm loving the location of this hotel, not so much the decor, upgrading to room + breakfast becomes unaffordable. Concern: room big enough for us three? Breakfast costs?
My main dilemma is price vs area as you guys can see. IBN Battuta is ranked higher than al murooj and the both rates are affordable. But how far would we have to go for good breakfast? I guess I got put off by some of the reviews on tripsdvisor.
The things I've booked so far are desert safari, yellow boats, burj afternoon tea. Maybe this will help in terms of choosing a hotel?
I know I've been super indecisive about my hotel and I'm sorry I keep coming back! I did look into the Oberoi as you guys suggested, but we can't be three adults in one room so booking two rooms would be out of budget.
So, IBN Battuta or al murooj???
I'm determined to get booked tonight!
Again, I thank you guys for being so patient with me.
