I was checking online some cost effective things to do in Dubai during the long weekend and came across this hotel. Looking for a great hotel for a staycation is kind of expensive especially during the holidays.
Zabeel House Mini was surprisingly affordable.
It has a modern take very chic design. Definitely a great choice for a three star hotel. Luckily, I was able to book it on the same day.
Mini is located in the new Al Seef developed by Meraas.
The reception was so cool and instagrammable! This hotel is definitely perfect for those who are on a holiday.
The location is so accessible to public transport with a good ten minute walk from the metro.
Just outside the hotel is a stretch full of restaurants and shopping boutiques.
Recently developed by Meraas, towards the end of the stretch is the Dubai Heritage that features old Dubai buildings.
All these in front of the famous Dubai Creek! The hotel location is a must see destination itself. Meraas nailed it once again.
After a long walk, you will probably want a comfortable and travel friendly room to rest. I booked the Pocket Room and this is how it looks like, for me, not average!
The room has a very unique character and elements in it,just like the side table with the vintage telephone.
And this cute red fridge that is small but very spacious inside.
And lastly, this part of the room they call “thought spot”.
The pocket room is small but it does not feel crowded at all. It is bright and allows a good amount of sunlight in. The room is also fully air conditioned and gets really cold at night.
Here’s a photo of the ceiling. Such a great idea for travelers who has a lot of questions in mind when new in a city.
It is a visual map of Dubai highlighting the tourists must see locations.
Finally, here’s the view from the massive window.
I absolutely love this place and recommend it to everyone who want to spend a holiday in Dubai. Zabeel House Mini is stylish, trendy and economic.
