Dubai Hotels

We can call Dubai definitely the most famous city and emirate of the Middle East and of the Arabian Peninsula as well. Apart from its oil resources, Dubai is heavily building on its touristic qualities and has been working hard to reinvent itself into being the most visited city in the world, a paradise on Earth for everyone. Therefore, it is natural that all the tourists who arrive in the huge city need to have a place to stay. The heavy construction of Dubai hotels started about twenty years ago, when Dubai has realised its potential in tourism and its even higher potential to become an important business hub as well. You can find Dubai hotels in every size and quality, in every category and in every district of the metropolis. Hereby, we would like to introduce you to some of the main categories of Dubai hotels.

If you arrive in Dubai for holiday, then you are likely to want to stay nearby the beach or for shopaholics, nearby some great shopping areas too. The Dubai hotels best for summer holidays can be found in two main areas: one if the area of the Palm Jumeirah Island. The area of the island comprises of the Jumeirah Beach hotel, the hotels and apartotels of Al Barsha and the high category hotels within the Dubai Marina that gives home to some of the best hotels of Dubai. You can also find the highest category of luxury hotels here as well as the beach centre of Jumeirah Hotel Group, which owns the Burj Al Arab, the Jumeirah Beach Hotel and the Madinat Jumeirah complex too which accommodates 3 hotels and many-many private villas for the luxury holidays. Some of the best beach resorts of Dubai are located on the beachside of the Dubai Marina, such as the Sheraton, the Le Royal Meridien, the Habtoor Grand Plaza or the Hilton. You can also find some of the most beautiful hotels on the Palm Jumeirah Island, such as Jumeirah’s newest luxury hotel, the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, the Taj Exotica, and the beautiful Atlantis the Palm, one of the most picturesque Dubai hotels. These resorts are by far the best Dubai hotels for a completely beautiful summer beach holiday. The lower budget Dubai hotels and apartotels close to the Jumeirah Beach are located in the Al Barsha district, which is right behind the Jumeriah Beach Resort district. Al Barsha is completely full of hotels, and from here, you can easily get to the beach too.

The best business hotels of Dubai can be found either in Al Barsha or in Garhoud, which is very near the International Airport of Dubai with some of the best business hotels of Dubai. Other elite business and corporate hotels are located in the area of the World Trade Centre, some of the best downtown hotel is the Armani within the Burj Khalifa, other luxury corporate hotels are located within the shopping malls, and the Mall of the Emirates has two luxury hotels and about a dozen business hotels in its area.

Before travelling to Dubai, most of the hotels could help you with the arranging of your visa, however be careful if you arrive with any online booking or if you have paid for your accommodation online because there are taxes and other costs, which the hotels will want you to pay as an extra.
