Where To Stay In Dubai On A Budget?

As we all know that Dubai which is one of the world’s most visited destinations has made the announcement that it is reopening for tourists from the 7th of July,2020.

If you are visiting Dubai for the first time you must be looking for a lot of information about the city such as things to do, best places to visit, and most importantly where to stay in Dubai.

In this blog post, I have shared list of 5 best areas to stay in Dubai, with a reason when and why to choose these areas based on different factors.

Before going ahead with your question “Where to stay in Dubai”? Let’s find out which are the best areas in Dubai for tourists as it will make choosing stay for you easy.

5 Best Areas To Stay In Dubai

This area is the heart of the city because of various reasons such as popular attraction like Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall, Dubai Fountain, Souk Al Bahar, Dubai Opera, luxurious shops, fine dining, shopping, and more.

It is considered as one of the most expensive area in the city but there are affordable accommodation too in-case you want to stay here.

I would recommend you to book your stay in Downtown if and only if you are planning to visit Burj Khalifa and all the nearby attractions with no budget issue as it will save a lot of time and money on travelling.

And, if you are on a budget and wants to stay near beach then I would recommend go to Marina.

Tip: If you are visiting the Top of Burj Khalifa, I would recommend you to buy your tickets in advance to skip long lines and get a discount. You can also check out my blog on Burj Khalifa Tickets to know more.

Must Read:


This area is in old Dubai located on the western side of the Dubai Creek.  It is well-known for tourist places such as historic buildings, museums, mosques, shopping streets, souqs, and the country’s only Hindu temple.

If you want to experience traditional culture and low on budget then this is the perfect place for you as Bur Dubai offers  accommodation and Indian restaurant at the cheapest price in Dubai.

Not good if: There are no nice bars and, besides very local restaurants, they aren’t really fine-dining options. It is also far away from famous the extravagant Dubai monuments.

If you don’t know let me tell you that this is a man-made marina in Dubai which is full of high-rise building all over the district.

It is considered as one of the best places to enjoy nightlife and dining. You can do lots of activities here such as go on a Dhow Cruise Dinner, Yacht Party, Jet Skiing, Skydiving, Parasailing, and more.

The marina looks mind-blowing after sunset as the view from the hotels facing sea views and skyline is beyond belief.

If you have no budget issue then this is one of the most happening places for you in Dubai with amazing hotels and a lot of fun activities to do. Apart from this, it is well connected to the Dubai Metro which makes travelling easy.

However, Dubai Marina is far from location like Burj Khalifa, Deira and Old Dubai.


If you want to stay in a luxury hotel and resorts then you should visit Palm Jumeirah.

The Palm Jumeirah is home to most luxurious resorts in Dubai such as Atlantis the Palm, the One&Only, FIVE Palm Jumeirah Resort, Anantara The Palm, Sofitel Dubai The Palm, W Dubai – The Palm and more.

This place is paradise for beach lovers with unlimited leisure and recreation activities. For a hotel and resort with sea views, this is most likely the best place to stay in Dubai.

For staying at the Palm you need a car to travel from the resort to other places like Dubai Downtown, Jumeirah Beach or Dubai Marina. 

However, if you love beaches and sea views and don’t mind staying away from the city then this is the best place for you.


JBR is famous for beaches, outdoor activities, and food & restaurants as it is located against the Persian Gulf in Dubai Marina.

This is the best location for you if you plan to do some outdoor and fun activities. Apart from this, there is less restriction as compared to other places in Dubai in terms of dressing, that is the reason you will see most of European expats in JBR.

This is not a good option for you if shopping is on your mind even though the area has shopping destination like Mall of the Emirates.

I know this area is one on the most expensive area in Dubai still you can find some budget options for your stay. During your free time you can go for a stroll at places like the walk, or the beach.


You should stay in these areas if you are planning to do following things:

  • Downtown Dubai -visit Burj Khalifa, shopping, and nearby places

  • Bur Dubai – to experience the traditional culture of Dubai with a visit to historic buildings, museums, street shopping, and more

  • Dubai Marina – for water sports activities, nightlife, cruise, etc

  • Palm Jumeirah – to stay in luxurious resorts and perfect for a beach lovers

  • JBR – for outdoor activities, and beaches

Travel Exclusive News / Istanbul / Turkey / 7 Of The Best Neighborhoods in Istanbul / By Jennifer Hattam

With its huge size and centuries of history, it would be impossible to see all of Istanbul in one trip – or perhaps even in one lifetime.

Still, its central neighborhoods are relatively compact, and each has its own distinct character and offerings. First-time visitors and those on a tight schedule will likely want to book a hotel in Sultanahmet, smack in the middle of Istanbul’s star attractions, while time spent in other districts gives insights into different aspects of local life in a city that contains multitudes.

Get to know Istanbul by each neighborhood one at a time.

Discover the world’s most intriguing experiences with our weekly newsletter delivered straight to your inbox.

1. Sultanahmet

Best place to stay for unmissable sights 

The (seriously) historic center of Istanbul and the former seat of both the Byzantine and Ottoman empires, Sultanahmet contains the majority of the city’s most-visited sights within walking distance of each other, making it a convenient base.

For historic atmosphere, it’s certainly hard to beat: the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque face off across Sultanahmet Square, with the storied Hippodrome alongside and the grandeur of Topkapı Palace just a stone’s throw away. Even seemingly nondescript parks, plazas and parking lots are built atop or alongside ancient ruins. 

With a dense concentration of hotels, accommodation options cater to every budget, including rooms in restored Ottoman mansions and simple pansiyons (hostels) with million-dollar rooftop views over the neighborhood’s domes and minarets.

The flip side is that little local life remains in Sultanahmet, and the generally tourist-focused restaurants hardly show off Turkish cuisine at its best.

2. Beyoğlu

Best neighborhood for contemporary art and culture

Across the Golden Horn (and a short tram ride away) from Sultanahmet, winding streets climb past the Galata Tower to İstiklal Caddesi, the pedestrian thoroughfare that cuts through the bustling Beyoğlu district.

Known in the past as Pera and Galata, this area has historically been home to many of Istanbul’s Christian and foreign communities. Today, it retains numerous – and sometimes beautifully restored – European-style apartments from the late 19th and early 20th century. 

Important cultural institutions such as the Pera Museum, the newly opened Istanbul ModernSALT BeyoğluSALT Galata (in the former headquarters of the Ottoman Bank), the Istanbul Research Institute and numerous small galleries have established themselves in some of these buildings, making the neighborhood ideal for an afternoon of art-going.

Though no longer the nexus of the city’s dining and nightlife scene it once was, Beyoğlu still has fine contemporary restaurants as well as lively meyhanes (taverns) where the raki and conviviality flow freely.

In addition to the large hotels around Taksim Square, you can find smaller hotels and rental apartments in the Cihangir, Çukurcuma, Galata and Karaköy quarters within Beyoğlu, each of which has an attractive atmosphere of its own.

3. Fener and Balat

Best areas for antiques and Instagram shoots

Traces of history blend with a stylish present in the adjacent neighborhoods of Fener and Balat, along the banks of the Golden Horn.

The landmark “iron church” and Patriarchal Church of St George attest to the area’s more cosmopolitan past, while colorful old homes and cobbled streets have become a favorite backdrop for film crews and Instagram influencers alike. 

Antique collectors, bargain hunters and nostalgia buffs descend on the neighborhood’s many antique stores, especially when they hold lively auctions, while the cafe culture here thrives.

This area doesn’t have many hotel or nightlife options, but a tram along the water – as well as a slower but more scenic ferry on the Golden Horn – make it relatively easy to get back to Sultanahmet or Beyoğlu after a day’s leisurely wandering.

4. Kadıköy

Best area for cafes and nightlife

The popularity of the Kadıköy district on the Asian side of Istanbul has exploded in recent years, creating a neighborhood that’s vibrant day and night, with third-wave coffee shops, hip boutiques, small independent art galleries, restaurants, cocktail bars, pubs and live-music venues. 

While the neighborhood has a few notable sights – a museum dedicated to a beloved Turkish rock star, a 1927 opera house, a mixed-use cultural center in a restored gasworks, a colorful street market – the main attraction is simply soaking in the scene and admiring the spectacular sunsets from the long waterfront park’s promenade.

This area has a handful of hotel options, mostly near the water, but it’s easy to hop over for the day or evening from Eminönü or Karaköy on a ferry ride – a quintessential Istanbul experience in itself. 

5. Nişantaşı and Teşvikiye

Best places to go for luxury shopping

Just north of Taksim Square, chic Nişantaşı and Teşvikiye draw a fashionable set with their leafy streets lined with designer boutiques and high-end department stores, stylish sidewalk cafes and grand apartment buildings.

This area has good restaurants and some luxurious hotels, too. The neighborhoods abut Maçka Park, one of the largest green spaces in the city center and a popular spot with picnickers, dog walkers and joggers. 

Though the area is in the central city, limited transportation links are a downside. Walking to the Osmanbey metro station or downhill to the buses and ferries of Beşiktaş are the best ways to connect to the rest of the city.

6. Kurtuluş and Bomonti

Best areas for market shopping and local life

Down-to-earth Kurtuluş and up-and-coming Bomonti are just on the opposite side of the Osmanbey metro station from Nişantaşı and Teşvikiye – but a world away in atmosphere.

Kurtuluş offers the best of traditional neighborhood life, with bustling streets and a wealth of small homestyle restaurants, bakeries, delis and other food stores. 

Anchored around the Bomontiada entertainment complex in a historic brewery building, Bomonti has a growing dining and nightlife scene, as well as some higher-end hotels. In between is Feriköy, where an open-air market is set up in a parking garage multiple times a week, with vendors selling organic produce on Saturday, antiques on Sunday and a mixed array of foodstuffs and homewares on Mondays and Thursdays.

7. Beşiktaş and Ortaköy

Best places to stay for deluxe hotels with Bosphorus views 

The neighborhoods of Beşiktaş and Ortaköy along the Bosphorus are home to some of Istanbul’s most luxurious international hotels, boasting broad views across the famous strait.

Beşiktaş itself is a busy transit hub with a youthful vibe and lots of casual bars and restaurants around its lively market area. A group of restored late-19th-century Ottoman row houses in the Akaretler part of the neighborhood, near the Naval Museum, is now home to cafes and contemporary art exhibitions. 

Sitting under the first Bosphorus Bridge, Ortaköy has a beautiful baroque mosque and a popular waterfront area. Both areas have ferry docks, though Beşiktaş has more connections.

In between sits hilly, green Yıldız Park, former hunting ground to the sultan, now a popular place to have a big Turkish breakfast buffet in a century-old pavilion.
