Getting there. Pre-paid taxis to the city centre are available 24 hours a day in the Terminal 1 arrivals hall and it costs around 25 AED to get to the hotel. Limousine hire can be arranged in the arrivals hall, and a bus service runs to Bur Dubai city centre approximately every ten minutes. Alternatively, the hotel can arrange airport transportation on advance request (surcharge).
Getting around. Taxis are a cheap, efficient and safe way to explore Dubai and the surrounding UAE states. However, allow extra time to get to your destination during rush hour (8 AM to 10 AM and 5 PM to 6.30 PM) daily. Public buses are available but these are irregular, mostly used by Dubai's low-income workers, and not recommended for lone female travellers.
