Expert review of Premier Inn Dubai International Airport
Despite untold beaches, cloud-piercingly tall towers and enough malls to overwhelm even the most hardened of shopper, there’s no denying that Dubai is often used simply as a stopover. It’s quite handily located, and hundreds of thousands of people arrive each year simply to hop on another plane going elsewhere. And, for such travellers, five-star resorts or designer-endorsed towers aren’t the most practical or economical of accommodation. The Premier Inn Dubai International Airport, however, is.
As the name (hopefully) suggests, the hotel is located on the doorstep of Dubai International Airport, with complimentary shuttle buses running to Terminals 1 & 2 every 30 minutes. Should you want to venture into town, a taxi to the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall will take around 20 minutes, while the nearest beach is around 25 minutes away.
The rooms are compact, clean and comfortable, with basic en-suite and a purple theme running across the bed linen, headboard and carpet. Each comes with free WiFi, which is more than can be said for many of Dubai’s five-star affairs.
Barring the lobby, there isn’t much in the way of public areas, unless you count the purple-carpet lined corridors.
Ignoring the tacky name, Bedouin’s Bistro is a fairly decent spot for a buffet breakfast or evening bite. For a drink, there’s The Retreat, a basic but adequate bar.
On the rooftop, there’s a perfectly pleasant pool with a scattering of sunbeds.
Perfectly friendly and helpful.
Mainly travellers passing through Dubai for less than 24 hours.
As per all Premier Inns, there's a set price for rooms.
