It can be hard to choose a hotel to stay at in Dubai, thanks to hundreds of beautiful buildings with excellent service. However, there are some that top the rest, and are well worth blowing the budget on. Hotels don’t get much more opulent than in Dubai, so use this time as a special treat, and live the life of luxury for a night or two.
But it’s not just glitz and glamour in Dubai: there are plenty of affordable hotels with fantastic service and facilities. A range of Premier Inns are perfect for a budget weekend away, while Arabian Park Hotel blows three-star accommodation out of the water. There’s always the choice of self-catering as well, with many apartments offering this money-saving way to holiday. With home-swap sites flooding the internet, it’s easy to find reasonably priced flats in local areas, as well as taking advantage of insider knowledge.
The vast majority of hotels in Dubai can guarantee top quality service, but for the best in the state – and the best in the world – it’s worth heading to Burj Al Arab. With its seven stars, it’s a global leader in the hospitality industry, and every visitor should go for a drink – if not to stay for a night. If not Burj Al Arab, try Al Qasr or Shangri-La, for the ultimate holiday experience.
Settle into the hustle and bustle of city life with hotels located right in the heart of Dubai - but don't forget that many superb hotels are located beyond the city centre: head out into the desert and experience fine living underneath the starry night sky, surrounded by powdery sand.
