Where in Dubai should I book a hotel at?

Please tell me the address in dubai where it is good for tourists to book a hotel. I want a hotel that is located near the center of town but where it is safe and nice.


City: Dubai

Emerate: Dubayy

Country: United Arab Emirates



One of the unique things about Dubai is the feeling of calm and safety no matter where you are in the city. It is a very safe place to visit, a very safe place to live and work.

Many very nice hotels in town - four, five, & one seven star (Burj Al Arab - premium rates!).

Three that I would recommend for location and access to downtown Dubai: Grand Hyatt Dubai, Metropolitan Palace and if you prefer by the beach, Le Meridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina.

As Rob said, anywhere in Dubai is safe .. u dont have to worry about that ..

then it all depepnds on your budget .. low budget means Bur Dubai district ..

if you are willing to pay around 200$ look around Sheikh Zayed Road District ..

then there are the luxury hotels .. like burj arab , the address .. etc

i recommnd
Hi Amy,

if you want to be central book in morouj rotana or ,rotana towers,its central and relativley cheap in the 200-300$ range or if u wann go luxurious try jumeirah beach hotel or burj al arab :)
There's not really a center to Dubai. The best thing to do when booking a hotel in Dubai is to focus on your needs and wants. Decide if you want a hotel apartment or a regular hotel. If you want a beach hotel, look at Jumeirah Beach. The Marina and the Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residences have great hotel apartments. If you want a mall hotel, then book the Kempinski Mall of the Emirates which is connected or Raffles connected to Wafi, or Intercontintal, Crown Plaza to Festival City. My personal favorites are Festival City hotels and The Walk which has tons of restaurants and you can walk and walk with public beach right there. There are many others, but please be advised that the traffic in Dubai is busy.
Hi the best hotels i can recommend in centre of town is the JW Marriott Deira which also has excellent restaurants but more importantly is reasonably priced. For any Marriott hotel bookings lets me know as I get corporate rates. Otherwise the Fairmont is a great centrally located option right on the Sheikh Zahed Road. If you want the beach then for me the most value for money option is the Royal Meridien Beach Club in Jumeirah and it is right next to the famour JBR Walk where you have coffee shops and restaurants lined up across 1 km of beach front.

The best website to have a look at for all bookings and tours is . If you want the marriott let me know your dates and I will help you out. I also offer personalied tours.

Take care
to be close to the all malls and find good hotels with resonable price, search in Diera
Well actually Dubai is the place which I considered one of the safest place after Singapore. However there are some areas where we have heard that thins happened wrong with few tourists. Its always recommended to find out hotels in places like bur dubai, festival city, new deira, jumeriah, sh zyed road, downtown or dubai marina. Visit the site and you find your answer. Never ever take any thing in Old Deira like Naif Road, Nasir Square, though the place is damn sheep however you can find some risks there especialy at night.
The Center of town is not nice - stay in Festival City which is pretty much center. You have a shopping mall there and many restaurants. Plus you can get anywhere in Dubai fairly easy.
Good hotels with good rates are the hotels in the Dubai Festival City - Intercontinental and Crown Plaza. You may want to check out J.W. Marriott too which is in the city centre. Another nice hotel is the Sofitel Hotel adjacent to the Deira City Centre shopping complex.

If you want to check rates of hotels here in the city, you may try Emirates Holidays' service.

As for safety, we all know that everywhere you go, there will be petty crimes committed and it is wise to be on the guard at all times. Do not wear flashy jeweleries or you will become an easy target. Always use a belt bag or sling bag when you go around the city. Try joining the city tours so you travel in groups. Try avoiding dark alleys. Do not bring too many cash. If you need to withdraw money from the ATM machine, try doing that during the day and as much as possible, in a mall or place where there are many people.

Dubai is still a relatively safe place to stay but it is better to be careful and alert at all times.

These are just common tips most travelers have to note.

Enjoy your stay in sunny Dubai!
Yes I do agree that Hotels at festival city are located in the middle of the city; as the city itself grows very fast; it is hard to determine where is the center location; But at the festival city Crowne Plaza and Intercontinental are the best choice;

Easy to grab Metro and ride to any other attractions of Dubai.
