Whether you just want somewhere to rest your tired legs after a hard day exploring Dubai or a luxury hotel to make your romantic break even more memorable, we’ve got you covered.
Every hotel on our list is centrally located, clean, comfortable, has a 24/7 reception, and excellent reviews on Trip Advisor.
If you haven’t already booked your transfer to the hotel we recommend booking it in advance as taxis from the airport are more expensive. You can book through a reliable source here.
Alternatively, all hotels on this list are accessible by public transport. Check out our Getting Around Dubai article to see the best way of getting to your hotel from either the airport or train station.
