Budget Hotel in the Old Districts

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 3, 2008

The hotel is located in the heart of the main electronics and textile market in Diera and only a 15-20 minutes drive from the Dubai International Airport. Guests can conveniently hop on to the Dubai Airport Bus #401 (3AED per pax) from outside the Terminal 1 bldg (turn left after exiting) & be brought right to the doorstep of the hotel in Sabakha Street in 15-20 min. The same bus will bring you back to the airport in 30-40 min the other way (still 3 AED).

It is only a few minutes away from many tourist destinations like Deira City Centre, the Twin Towers Mall, the Dubai Creek, the Gold Souk, the Spice Souk and the Dubai Textile Souk. Convenience is definitely a big draw as you need not drag yourself too far from bus to hotel - it's just across the road! (and it's a BIG factor considering I reached the hotel at 3am!)

Booked the hotel via Hostelworld. Dubai does have its share of low end hotels but most of them are almost non-contactable. This hotel thus came as sort of a compromise as I was seeking a centrally located budget hotel. My room 303, despite its proximity to the lift (which means plenty of annoying ding-ing for light sleepers) came with a balcony the allows me to feel the vibes of the streets below. The en-suite room (no bath tub; towel provided) was comfortable - clean and orderly and comes with a mini-fridge and a TV....that curiously received only Indian channels! Breakfast is NOT included.

The hotel is manned by a joint Philippino-Indian staff. Service is friendly and honest. When asked to use the Internet, the manager directed me elsewhere as the rates were better. The hotel also allow you to deposit your luggage and they do accept credit card payments.

The area around the hotel is buzzing with frantic activities till about 1-2 am in the morning. Bargain shops are literally throwing their wares at you with items going at ridiculous low prices though standard of the wares may leave much to be desired.

Unique Quality: Soak up the Dubai experience among the many souks around Deira....though please be prepared. Deira is home to many Indians who are either residing or working in Dubai so instead of an Arabic adventure, it felt more like I was in India!

The proximity to souks meant easy shopping though looking for variety in food becomes a huge challenge as I ventured far and wide to only find Indian restaurants and kebab stops.

I did manage to find an Internet cafe on the top floor of Abraj Centre, just 5 minutes stroll from the Hotel that charges only 3AED for 1 hour. (The Hotel charges 10AED for 1 hour)

Directions: Opposite Sabakha Bus Station in Deira.

The Pacific hotel is located in Deira downtown. Alot of people come to Dubai and just go straight to Jumeirah and dont see the downtown, which is where the culture is.
The hotel is 2 star, and really only recommended for budget travellers, even tough its $80(220d)/night for a double.
It very basic and not all that clean, not got aircon, and isnt in the best area.its located right by sabkha bus station which is conveniant.
