The perennial problem for holidaymakers in Dubai, UAE is hotel accommodation. We all know living in Dubai doesn’t come cheap, and it seems even spending the night in the city requires deep pockets. It can be prohibitively expensive at the best of times and even more so now that many other currencies are not at their strongest against the dirham. Currently, it is ranked second most expensive city to live in, just below Geneva.
Luckily, Dubai is not a city where you’re likely to spend much time in your hotel room, so if you’re strapped for cash it makes sense to trim your accommodation budget.
A new wave of ‘affordable’ hotels is springing up in the city that never sleeps, with many offering a range of ‘freebies’ including complimentary breakfast and free WiFi.
So if you’re looking for a spot to rest your weary head after a long day sightseeing, why not try some of these hotels and tips?
Tips to get best hotel deals in Dubai cheaply
With the following tips, you and your companions can trim hotel costs and enjoy a delightful getaway without breaking the bank.
Time of your stay
When it comes to getting a good deal on a hotel room in Dubai, timing can be everything. One of the easiest ways to trim your travel budget is to go off-season.
You may be able to reduce your hotel bill by staying midweek rather than during the weekend.
Hotels also often drop rates after 6 p.m. if people with reservations have not arrived.
In some cases, it’s appropriate to negotiate a room rate.It’s important to do this tactfully and to pay a fair price in the end.
Frame your initial offer so that it doesn’t create a combative exchange,
“For example, ‘I’d really like to stay here, but $80 a night is a bit higher than my budget allows. Would you consider dropping that by 15 percent?'”
Sometimes, you’ll get a receptive response. If the answer is a solid “no” or the person seems offended, let it go! However, in most cases, Hotels do agree to give discounts.
Consider hotels that don’t appear on major search sites
Many small hotels don’t want to pay search site commissions, and therefore they don’t participate. When you call them, you’re often talking to an owner or manager who is empowered to offer a discount. TripAdvisor is a good site to use to identify these small hotels, but you should go directly to the hotel to make reservations.
Go with a package
If you’re traveling to Dubai, look for a deal that includes hotel, airfare and car rental, which may be cheaper than buying these components individually. Many hotels offer packages that include everything you might need during the trip.
