Spontaneous Staycation at Grandeur Hotel

Ed and I have been very spontaneous recently, from our date nights to our weekend staycations. It feels good to wake up on a weekend morning without a single plan, but end the day somewhere least expected. One weekend, while having lunch at home, we talked about how we missed having mini-vacations. Out of the blue, we decided to book a hotel stay for the weekend. Since it was a bit late to travel to another Emirate, we looked for a place in Dubai, easily accessible yet far from the busy town center. 

After browsing the hotel list at booking.com, we found Grandeur Hotel in Al Barsha, a hotel with good reviews, great location and super low rate.

Grandeur Hotel is just a 5-minute taxi ride from Mall of the Emirates, or 15 minutes by feet.

It is a simple 3-star hotel, with basic amenities; no welcome drinks and hot towels upon check in, no pianist in the lobby. But I wasn't disappointed because I never expected for something extravagant.

Our room was perfectly fine. It has an extra large, super comfortable bed, a mini bar, complimentary water, coffee and tea, spacious washroom, a bath tub and toiletries... almost complete! Two things missing are bedroom slippers and dental kits, these are stuff that guests have to request and pay for.

Grandeur Hotel has a swimming pool at the roof top, overlooking Dubai. It is a quiet spot where you can unwind and watch the busy city from afar.

The hotel also offered a free shuttle to the beach and to Oasis Centre Mall.

We booked a smart deal at www.booking.com, so we only paid 300AED for our overnight stay. It was 80% off the hotel's published room rate for an Executive Room!

How I love spontaneity and the quality time that comes along with it!
Have you done something spontaneous or do you prefer to always have a plan?
