Things I Love about Premier Inn Al Jaddaf

I have heard about Al Jaddaf a few times before, but most of the time, it was all about the dhow building yard. I thought it is a far-off deserted place located at the end of the Dubai Metro's Green Line. Little did I know, Al Jaddaf has quickly flourished into one of the most sought after communities in Dubai! 

It is in this thriving localle that Premier Inn Dubai opened a new hotel! Judging from the outside, Premier Inn Al Jaddaf is quite different from all the other Premier Inns I've seen. It looks very Dubai with its sand-hued facade and windcatchers! And when we stayed there last weekend, it realized that it is much more than a charming traditional exterior!

Super Saver Stay
In this time when most prices shoot up, finding a hotel that offers a great value for money is a gem. I was so pleased when I saw Premier Inn Dubai Al Jaddaf’s sizzling summer offer on social media. Room rate starts at only 81 AED, excluding tax and tourism fee.

This amazing deal is perfect for Dubai residents who are longing to break away from the routinary weekend happenings and also for budget-conscious travelers who are searching for an affordable place to stay.

Check out this offer at Premier Inn Dubai Al Jaddaf website.

2 for 1 Deals with Premier Inn Value Pass
Another reason why booking a stay at Premier Inn is such a steal is the Premier Inn Value Pass. Also called as the Premier Inn Passport, this pass (in disguise as a key cardholder, so don't throw it away) provides access to several discounts that guests can avail even after their stay.

With a handful of amazing Buy 1 Get 1 Free deals, Ed and I used it plenty of times last year. How can I forget the romantic dinner date we had at Bateaux Dubai wherein we only paid half the price? And of course, the coffee dates at Costa wherein we got the 2nd drink for free.

Here are some discounts included in this year's value pass:

  • 50% discount on City Sightseeing Dubai 1-day pass
  • 50% discount on Bateaux Dubai
  • Buy 1 Get 1 Free main dish at Reem Al Bawadi
  • 30% on treatments at MYST Spa
Check out the full list here.

Premier Inn Surprises
If you’re a sucker for good ol’ surprises (like me), Premier Inn knows how to tickle our fancy. Another exciting perk when you book direct at the Premier Inn website is the chance to have a special surprise waiting for you.

I was so delighted when I found a #PremierInnSurprises voucher when was checking the in-room safe. We won a City Sightseeing Dubai 1-day pass which made our weekend stay eventful!

The Staycation Experience itself
With all those added perks, one would probably think that there’s a grey area somewhere. But for a trusted name in the hospitality industry, I have to say that Premier Inn is just way too generous and very much dedicated to giving their guests an enjoyable stay.

My family was impressed when we were in Premier Inn Ibn Battuta last year, and history repeats when Ed and I stayed in Premier Inn Al Jaddaf last week.

Accommodations at Premier Inn Dubai are compact yet functional. The room that we stayed in at Premier Inn Al Jaddaf has a large double bed, Smart TV, tea/coffee maker, private bathroom, and all the necessities. The hotel has a gym and a swimming pool on the roof deck. The latter brings delight to most guests; the reason why we never had it all to ourselves for photo ops! :)

Voucher for Welcome Drinks
The check-in process was quick. Welcome refreshment was not offered at the reception. Instead, we received welcome drink vouchers that we can redeem for a glass of hops or grapes or softdrinks in the restaurant or in the bar. So I started the staycation weekend with white wine and Ed with a Heineken. Nothing could ever top that for sure!

Dining Options
While staying in Premier Inn Al Jaddaf, Ed and I had our meals at Nuevo – the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant, and at Mr. Toad's – one of the coolest pubs in the city. Nuevo’s Thursday dinner buffet and breakfast buffet were wonderful; the selections were fresh, delicious, and of good variety. Likewise, Mr. Toad's served not just pub grub but tasteful dishes like succulent steak and hearty mac n cheese bites.

Shuttle Service
At present, Al Jaddaf is not a popular area for tourists and locals alike, but it is a rapidly developing district. Location-wise, Premier Inn Al Jaddaf is a short walking distance to the metro station. The hotel also provides a complimentary shuttle to the airport at frequent intervals and to Dubai Mall and Dubai Festival City twice daily.

Early Check-in and Late Check-out
Don’t you wish staycations are a bit longer than usual? I always do! Premier Inn, although subject to availability, tries to make it possible. Guests who book direct can check-in as early as 9 AM and can check-out as late as 4 PM!

Great Hotel Staff
What made our staycay even more special are the staff at Premier Inn Al Jaddaf. Everyone was so friendly and polite; from the check-in counter to the restaurants to housekeeping! We felt at home every time we walk in the lobby. We were well-taken care of while dining at Nuevo and Mr. Toad's. And we had a hassle-free stay; thanks to the housekeeping who immediately provided vanity kits, made up our bed while we were away and even left a hand-written letter which made us smile from ear to ear.
