I was looking around for hotel rooms in Dubai in the range of $300 a night. and it seemed as though I’ve asked for something out of the ordinary! Even when I called the travel agency the guy almost didn’t take me seriously. I checked expedia for hotels’ rates and got shocked! Rooms are going for $500 and $850 a night?! regular rooms not suites! This means If I stayed for the 5 days, I would’ve spent 2 Macbooks worth of money! πŸ˜›

I lived in this country for so long and asked for rates so many times for friends and relatives, but never really thought about the prices. Prices are very real when I’m the one on the spending end! lol

Anyway, finally the travel agency found me this nice new hotel. Copthorne Hotel, Located near Deira City Center, over looking Dubai’s Creek. the hotel is part of Millennium Hotels group.

This is My room (Booked a junior suite coz all the rooms were gone)


This is the sitting area (not allowed to sit in the bedroom.. gotta follow the rules)


The pool area


Overall, and up to now, For 80Kd per night, I think it was an excellent choice and (Father’s) money well spent. The staff are friendly and attentive. Spacious rooms. Big Plasma screens and free high-speed internet.

I give them 4/5. I would’ve given them a better rating if it wasn’t for the Hotel’s ugly exterior and lobby.

    Dubai hotels are the highest these days.. and for what.. nothing!!
    okay there are some great hotels but if you compair it to the same range in other countries it would be much much higher rates
    prices are increasing for no reason..
    i did some calculation the other day.. it was cheaper to go to London for 10 days than staying in dubai for the same period.
    and by the way did you know that “Khaleji’s ” are getting higher prices !!
    it happend to me when I stayed in burj alarab and mina alsalam as well.. i paid more than the double than the others !!

    If THIS is how your room looked like, what does a 3 times as much expensive, $850 room have? πŸ˜€

    Something a little cheaper would be nice too, you know, maybe without the sofa that can seat 17 adults? πŸ˜€

    u can stay in the most lexurious hotel anywer in europe for the price of a double room in a hotel in dubai (prob is that same said hotel room price was around 40 kd a few yrs back) WHY!

    a double room in emarates palace hotel which is a 6 star and in abudabi is around 200 kd and a room in a 4 star hotel ka7yaan b dubai goes for the same!

    I heard that now is travel season for Dubai so your timing is not in your favor. If you went in the summer the prices I think would be a lot lower.

    I am glad your father’s money was well spent πŸ™‚ Hehehe You have a diwaniyaa inside the room! The seating area?

    I can not agree with you in 100% regarding some thoughts, but you got good point of view
