What to look out for when booking accommodation in Dubai?

  • Air conditioning – Due to the desert climate in Dubai, air conditioning is a must. You can find it in both budget and luxury hotels. However, you should check before you travel that your hotel does have air conditioning.
  • Location – Dubai is vast, and getting from one place to another can take a relatively long time. Dubai Marina is great for luxury and nightlife, while Downtown Dubai is ideal for shopping and sightseeing. Make your plans clear in advance and choose your accommodation accordingly.
  • Transport links– Check if public transport, such as the metro, is easily accessible to make sightseeing easier. Dubai is constantly under construction and some areas are not yet well connected to local public transport. If you’re planning on exploring the city, a metro nearby is a must.
  • Luggage storage and 24-hour reception – Most hotels in Dubai offer luggage storage and a 24-hour reception if you arrive early in the morning or late in the evening. Moreover, the service is so good that sometimes you will be checked in a few hours earlier.
