Tourist-Friendly Hotel Apartments in Dubai
If you are looking for tourist- friendly hotel apartments in Dubai close to all the attractions in downtown and old Dubai then Savoy Dubai is perfectly located to get you to all the sights as it is conveniently located close to Dubai’s excellent metro service. Here is a list of just some of Dubai’s attractions that can be easily reached from our hotel apartments.
- Burj Khalifa
Standing proud in the heart of Downtown, the impressive Burj Khalifa stretches upwards at a towering 828 meters. It’s a must-do for any Dubai visit and an incredible sight in real life. This architectural and engineering feat boasts observation decks on the 148 (At The Top Sky) and 125 floors (At the Top)– it pays to book ahead for the At The Top experience as not only will you beat the queues you are also likely to be able to get your ticket for a cheaper price than if you just pay on the day. If you’d like to add a delicious taste of luxury to your visit you could also head up to At.mosphere on the 122nd floor, or venture to The Lounge spread over the 152/38/4 floors for a truly breathtaking view.
- The Dubai Mall
There’s something to be said about The Dubai Mall –being the world’s biggest mall there’s plenty for everyone and it’s certainly impressive. Visitors can explore high fashion concept stores, cinemas, restaurants and much much more. If you want to beat the heat put some skates on and do a few laps on the indoor ice rink. The Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo are popular attractions for families – as is the resident dinosaur!
- The Dubai Fountains
The Dubai Fountains are best observed at night when you can also see the LED show on the Burj Khalifa– performances start from 6pm and run every half hour until 11pm daily. You’ll see 275m of arching water jets dance in unison to music and lights. Each performance lasts for around five minutes. There are daytime shows at 1pm and 1.30pm every day apart from Friday when they are on at 1.30pm and 2pm. If you want to get even closer to the action, you can book tickets for an abra ride on the lake at https://tickets.atthetop.ae/atthetop/en-us
- Dubai Opera
Surrounded by water, the dhow-shaped building of Dubai Opera is a stylish tribute to Dubai’s maritime history. As well as being a venue for theatre, opera, ballet, orchestras, concerts, fashion shows, live entertainment, conferences, galleries and art exhibitions the venue is also home to The Loft at Dubai Opera offering seafood and fine dining and The Loft Terrace with an open roof that gives a unique view of the Burj Khalifa.

Note the Burj Khalifa, The Dubai Mall, Dubai Fountains and Dubai Opera are all located Downtown and can be easily reached in under 15 mins from our tourist-friendly hotel apartments in Dubai.
- Historic Dubai Creek
Dubai Creek is where the first settlers of Dubai set up home, and where you can discover the history of Dubai. Explore the exotic gold and spice souks, visit the Dubai Museum and ride across the creek on a traditional Abra for only 1 AED. Wander the streets of the Al Fahidi and Al Bastakiya neighborhoods and see traditional architecture and indulge in the delicious smells and sights. This is just a 5-minutes drive from Savoy Hotel Apartments.
- Dubai Frame
Dubai’s newest attraction, the Dubai Frame is on the border of old and new Dubai, offering 360 views of the city from its 150m high viewing platform. A popular feature is the glass floor allowing you to see the ground as you walk between each side of the frame. The Mezzanine Museum located at the bottom of the frame tells the story of Dubai’s history and gives you a glimpse into the Dubai of the future. Again we recommend getting ahead of the crowd and purchasing your e-ticket in advance.

With more than 130 shops, restaurants and cafes La Mer is popular with locals and tourists alike. Beachgoers can take advantage of the water hammocks and shower facilities, and families will love the outdoor play areas. Surf and paddleboards are also available for hire for water sports enthusiasts. Day rooms and cabanas rentals are also available, making it comfortable for people looking to enjoy a day at the beach. A skateboard park and outdoor gym also add to the appeal of this beachfront destination.
