Short stay accommodation and budget-friendly tips for Dubai

25 January 2023


If you’re looking for short-stay accommodation that is cost-effective and closely situated to Dubai’s exciting attractions, look no further than Savoy Dubai.


Ten-to-one, Dubai is the least backpacker-friendly city, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a budget-friendly trip while visiting! From affordable accommodation at one of our four aparthotels seasoning the cityscape to how you can make the most while exploring the city’s wonders, here’s how to enjoy a meaningful (and easy on-the-budget) trip while staying with us.


Download The Entertainer app

With hundreds of enticing deals to snatch up, The Entertainer is your go-to app for enjoying Dubai without penny-pinching too much. Enjoy short-stay accommodation at Savoy Dubai and access exclusive The Entertainer deals on restaurants, bars, and other exciting activities in the city, all the way down to massages and experiences!


Check out the event pages

Websites like Time Out Dubai and What’s On Dubai often post a variety of affordable yet fun events taking place in the city. Whether they are free or easy on the wallet, you are bound to find something to do that doesn’t break the bank.


Visit the Dubai Camel Racing Club

When in Dubai, a camel racing event is a must! Visit the Dubai Camel Racing Club to check out the camels as they toil to the finish line. The best part is that it’s completely free! If you’re visiting Dubai from November to March, then add this activity to your bucket list.


Explore the souks

Venturing through Dubai’s variety of marketplaces is an enchanting and laid-back activity. You can choose to window shop or buy affordable trinkets to take home with you. Dubai’s souks include the Spice Souk, Gold Souk, Textile Souk and Perfume Souk, so take your pick to purchase or view luxurious silks and fragrant Emirati perfumes to aromatic spices and shiny gold ornaments.


Enjoy an abra ride

An abra is a traditional motorised boat that cruises along the historic Dubai Creek. Savoy’s four aparthotels are all conveniently located in the Bur Dubai area near the saltwater creek, giving you easy access to the charming Old Dubai area. It costs just AED 1 to cruise along Dubai Creek, making it a fabulous and cheap activity to enjoy while soaking up the exquisite surroundings.


Trek through Al Bastakiya Quarter

Marvel at the beautiful traditional Arab homes and buildings as you explore this older part of the city. Here is also where the incredible Dubai Museum is located where you can get a taste of the UAE’s past for just AED 3. The Dubai Museum is also the same building that was once a fort and is known as the oldest building in Dubai.


Pay a visit to the Jumeirah Mosque

For a truly unique and cultural experience while taking advantage of Savoy’s short-stay accommodation, visit the Jumeirah Mosque. As the only cultural site in the newer part of the city and also the only mosque open to non-Muslims, this quaint yet beautiful mosque is an absolute must-visit location while in Dubai.


Soak up the sun at The Beach at JBR

As one of the most popular beaches in Dubai, The Beach is located next to Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) and is a beautiful spot to enjoy some sun, sand and sea. Peppered with sun beds, cabanas, and a variety of beautiful restaurants and cafes along the promenade, there’s plenty to keep you entertained.
