The first thing you notice when you walk into the boutique hotel at Rockport is that the place is small, with a narrow hall, narrow stairs and a tiny table set up in the corner.
In fact, the hotel is tiny, with only a few rooms available, but the service here is excellent.
There are only a handful of staff here to handle your booking.
“I have a guest who is coming from Europe, he has booked a room for next month, but we are busy,” says hotel owner Arnaud.
“So we are sending him to a room at the airport.
It’s a small room, it’s one of the cheapest rooms in Dubai, it costs about 500 dirhams, so it’s quite good.”
And there are plenty of other options in Dubai to choose from.
As long as you are in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), you can stay at one of these five hotels for just under 2,500 dirham ($1,000) per night.
There is also the hotel’s cheap-night voucher option, which gives you a voucher of just 500 dirhes ($100) for the night, and the hotel has also partnered with local hotel chain, Al Khalifa.
The company is a major player in the UAE, with over 5,000 hotels and resorts across the country.
The hotel that Arnautad is staying at, which is located at the foot of the hill at Rock Port, has two different price points.
The cheaper price is only available for guests staying for less than two nights.
Guests can spend the night in the hotel, but they also have the option of booking a two-night stay at a different room, at a rate of 800 dirham.
If you want to spend the rest of the night at the hotel or are staying in Dubai for more than two days, the company offers the discount option.
The other option is to book the hotel for a full night, which costs 2,000 dirham, or for a half night, for the same price.
All these options are available at the Rockport boutique hotel, which was built in 2004.
The first three rooms are available for just 800 dirhes, but for the last room, you are limited to 600 dirhes.
“The room we have is really small and it’s in the middle of the street,” Arnau said.
“You have to walk through the busy area to find it.
So we have to keep walking to find a place to sleep.”
Arnaus are lucky to be able to stay at the boutique, which offers all the essentials for a comfortable stay, including the bed, bathroom and breakfast, and it is also well equipped with Wi-Fi.
If this sounds familiar, it is because this is how hotels in Dubai are usually built.
“In the past, we have had guests come from all over the world, but in recent years, we are finding a lot more people coming to Dubai to stay here,” Arrautad said.
And if you’re looking for a hotel in the city of Dubai, you can book online and pick your room now for just 500 Dirham.
There’s no guarantee you will be staying at the rockport boutique, but if you want a cheap-room experience, you should definitely check out the boutique.
You can also book in advance for your hotel stay, but it is advised that you book in person.
“They are all booked up for the next three days,” Arvaud said.
The Rockport luxury hotel offers a great value.
The accommodation at RockPort has a private balcony overlooking the ocean and it has plenty of views of the sea.
But it is a good place to relax after a long day of work, or to have a snack while you wait for your flight home.
Arnaur, Arnaust and the rest are staying at Rock port for a day or two, and then they will return to Dubai for a week or two.
They are staying with friends in the luxury hotel, and they will be returning to Rockport for a weekend or two later in March.
“We have no intention of leaving here, we want to stay there for the rest, we will stay here until the end of the month,” Aranaud said with a smile.
“It’s really nice.”
