Note: for clarity – the aim of this article is to show which, and how, 4 and 5 star Dubai business hotels can be obtained for less than 500 dirhams/night. It doesn’t mean they will be that rate every night!

How we chose our Brunch Budget Beds

Over the course of a few weeks, I anonymously stayed as a paying guest in several business hotels in Dubai. To define ‘business class’, a hotel should be :-

  • officially (not self-awarded) 4 or 5 stars by by Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM)
  • of a suitable standard to allow work in a room (i.e. a suitable desk, chair, fast internet etc.)
  • (ideally) in a hotel loyalty program to earn benefits, points/miles etc.

As a challenge, the budget was set at a maximum of 500 dirhams per room, to prove business hotels Dubai are not as expensive as a brunch. Most 4 star hotels came in around 350 or less, with 5 stars sometimes a little more; average price across 18 was under 400 dirhams.

Note – as with all our reviews, all hotel stays were anonymous, self-funded (not sponsored) nor with any PR involvement. Let’s leave the Dubai ‘Influencers’ to flounce around in freebie hotels and keep saying each one is their ‘favourite’.

Here are Eat Drink Stay Dubai, we’d rather focus on building trust for our readers.

Tactics used to get the best prices

  • All hotel rates were publicly available (i.e. no trade or agent-only rates)
  • Majority of hotels were booked directly with the hotel’s loyalty program, so as to avail of maximum earning (points/miles) but also receive in-stay benefits. Hilton Honors, Starwood Preferred Guest and Club Carlson all have terrific apps, often with member-only rates.
  • Kaligo often offered prices almost as low as, but with added benefit of earning airline miles.
  • found some great insider prices, as well as earning Welcome Rewards for each night. Once ten Welcome Reward nights have been completed, one free night of the average cost of the previous ten stays will be awarded.
  • Using Entertainer Travel – and the tips listed here – managed to find second night free in Steigenberger and JW Marriott Marquis, thus halving the costs. More information can be found in the stay reviews for each here and here.
  • Hotel Tonight consistently found the best prices for Wyndham Dubai Marina.
