Nice budget accommodation in the middle of the city. It is minutes away from Burjuman. The Creek, textile souq and Dubai Museum are within walking distance of about 15 mins. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The breakfast is boring. But overall nice hotel. They also organize some tours and shuttle services to various tourist attractions around Dubai. Enquire with the counter.
Directions: About 10 mins walk behind Burjuman.
Have just a few days to find something and chances of getting anything look bleak.
Have looked through Gulf News and Khaljeed Times without real luck. Have also checked out Dubaiclassifieds and no good.
What places or sites do you recommend checking out for a 25000-35000Dhm 1 B/R Budget?
If not what Hostels have the lowest rates in Dubai?
Will go for a drive around and take down some numbers here and there. Only have 2-3 days to find something! :-(
How long do you want it for? Do you mean a long-term lease?
More than 6 months at least..
For Plan B, Amir has details of the youth hostel on his pages. I don't think they let you stay for too many nights though.
Have you tried the Pearl Residence in Bur Dubai?
I've heard it's not bad (as a last option) but not sure about prices...
Thanks for the advice Jess and Colin (and also for the website).
Any more help is much appreciated.
Savoy hotel apartments in Bur Dubai?
At least Pearl Residence & Savoy have a better "cleanliness reputation" than the Golden Sands apartments!
We stayed at the Savoy for a couple of nights before we took over the apartment and it was pretty good, clean and in a good location.
Highly unlikely to find a 1 B/R in Dubai with the budget you suggested. But you can find a 1 B/R with that amount in Sharjah or even easier in Ajman. If you want to be in Dubai maybe you can share a 2 B/R with another couple.
Been and called over 30-40 different places and only one (on Dubai/Sharjah border) had 1B/R but with a lump front payment of 50,000Dhm per annum! Others were mostly full, 60,000+ or in Rolla, Sharjah.
At least I can carry out the role of a squatter.. Is that actually legal here? hehe
