In recent years Dubai has become synonymous with opulence, luxury and excess. From malls with their own indoor ski slopes, to manmade islands with the most desirable and expensive real estate in the world, Dubai has become a global economic power player in recent years.
Unfortunately not all of the 13.2 million tourists that visit the city every year have the budget to stay in the many fives star hotels and resorts that Dubai offers. Luckily there are affordable options available and they even offer a surprisingly high level of amenities. Just because the Premier Inn is a cheap hotel in Dubai, doesn’t mean that your experience will be cheap too.
About the Premier Inn
The Premier Inn worldwide franchise has built their name on affordability without skimping on amenities, and their Dubai location is no different. On top of the rich list of amenities just to keep you well within your budget, children under 15 years old not only stay for free but they also get free breakfast when you book one of the family rooms. The Premier Inn Dubai also offers a 24 hour shuttle service, so you will have no issue going and getting to the Dubai International Airport from the hotel.
The Premier Inn is conveniently located across from the Dubai International Airport’s 1 and 3 terminals and is a short (complementary) shuttle ride to all of Dubai’s attractions including the Deira City Center, the Dubai Mall, Downtown Dubai or even the sapphire blue of the Mediterranean.
The Premier Inn offers a whopping 281 rooms (why not 280…not sure, but that’s one more room that you can stay in, so we won’t question it that much). All rooms have Air Conditioning, free WiFi, en-suite bathroom, television and coffee/tea making facilities. You can choose between the a Double, Twin and Family room which offer respectively a king sized bed for couples, two single beds and a queen size bed, a pull out bed and a sofa bed. The company touts rooms that are extremely clean and comfortable, which may seem asinine but a significant consideration when looking for budget lodging.
Like I mentioned in the introduction, although the Premier Inn Dubai is a budget option, you would never guess that if you just looked at the list of amenities. Not only does the hotel offer 24 hour shuttle service to and from the airport, but also daily complimentary shuttle service to various attractions in Dubai. Guest can also take advantage of a rooftop pool and hot tub, a gym and a 24 hour Costas Café if you are burning the midnight oil trying prepare for a business meeting.
If you are feeling like a quick meal or a full a la carte dinner, then you can visit the international cuisine Bedouinn’s Bistro and Retreat which offers a huge selection of both quick meals and local favorites. If you are on a more “liquid” diet then you can unwind in the bar area of the restaurant.
