Creekside or Tecom area.  The latter is close to Jumeirah and yet prices are lower for hotels.

If you stay in the older/original part of the city, you should be significantly cheaper than staying along the beach near the glitzy hotels (Burj Al Arab).  We stayed at the Hilton Dubai Creek and loved absolutely every minute of it.  It was significanlty cheaper than staying along Jumeirah Beach, plus you get the added benefit of being along the creek to see the dhow's (and you get a view of the dhow's "port"), walking distance to the souk's for shoppping, authentic (and cheap), and the experience of being closer to those that actually live there.  We would stay there again if we went back.

The Creek area or Bur Dubai is an interesting place to stay and there are some great little hotels along the Creek such as Barjeel Heritage Guest House that you could check out. The area is more authentically Middle Eastern and you are still pretty close to all the action in Downtown Dubai.

Al Barsha and Tecom are two other good places to look for hotels with a slimmer budget and are also easy to move around from. Both areas have Dubai Metro stations in the vicinity and are relatively easy to reach Jumeirah or Dubai Marina and even Downtown Dubai.


If you are prepared to drive around a bit (which is not really avoidable in Dubai) these are great places to find reasonably-priced hotels.

  3. Al Barsha (attraction)
  4. Tecom (attraction)
  5. Jumeirah (attraction)
  6. Downtown Dubai (attraction)
