Finally, visitors to Dubai that aren't willing or able to spend a small fortune on hotels can breathe a sigh of relief: slowly but surely, more and more decently priced and well-kept budget hotels are arriving in our expensive city.
With the anticipated completion of the Middle East's first EasyHotel in Dubai (see my separate hotel tip) Premier Inn (by Whitbread Group UK) has already opened their first hotel for budget-conscious travellers at the end of 2007.
The Premier Inn Dubai is located outside of the city, closer to "new Dubai" rather than the historic & commercial centre. It's located in the Dubai Investments Park, situated just off the Emirates Road next to the Green Community. This is close to Jebel Ali Free Zone as well as Dubai Media City.
Nevertheless, the prices speak for themselves and taxis are relatively cheap in Dubai so you can easily drive back-and-forth into the city (approx. 30km distance).
Unique Quality: Prices for a double room start at ca. 450 Dhs per night. This already includes all taxes & surcharges, so that's excellent value.
Breakfast buffet is charged at 60 Dhs per person. (1 US$ = 3.67 Dhs)
KIDS EAT FOR FREE OFFER: Up to 2 children aged 15 and under can eat breakfast free when 1 adult purchases a full breakfast.
The reception is manned 24 hours a day, and they have an in-house bar that is license to sell alcoholic beverages. There are 308 rooms as well as a pool and even a Costa Coffee store.
All in all: this seems like a very good price in a decent hotel. There's nothing interesting within walking distance, but as aforementioned: taxis in Dubai are cheap, or you can rent a car.
If you need a hotel whilst you're visiting family or friends that live in some of the new residential projects in Dubai, then this is the perfect location for you.
