Where to stay for Expo 2020 Dubai

28 Apr 2021

If you’re heading to Dubai this winter, and want to know where to stay for Expo 2020 Dubai, we’re taking a look at the best hotels near Expo 2020 and what else you can do whilst you’re in town.

Stay Near Expo 2020

When visiting any event, a popular choice is to opt for a hotel as close as possible to where you need to be. Luckily, Premier Inn has 6 hotels in Dubai, and 2 of our locations will put you less than 20 minutes from Expo 2020 Dubai.

Our closest hotel to Expo 2020 Dubai is Premier Inn Dubai Investments Park. A 500m walk from Dubai Metro, that’s just one stop away from Expo 2020. Or if you prefer to take a taxi, you can get from the hotel to Expo 2020 in 15 minutes. There’s free parking at the hotel, and parking facilities at the Expo 2020 site, making driving there a breeze.

You’ll also find Premier Inn Dubai Ibn Battuta Mall within easy reach of Expo 2020 Dubai. The hotel has direct access to Ibn Battuta Mall and is connected to Dubai Metro, so when you’ve completed your visit to Expo 2020, you can pick up souvenirs and more at the mall. Or hop on the Metro and head to Dubai Marina and JBR to soak up the city vibes with beachside restaurants, marina boat cruises and marvel at Ain Dubai, the world’s tallest Ferris wheel.

Discover Dubai

After you’ve checked-in, and checked-out Expo 2020, there’s so much more to do near your hotel in Dubai.

From Premier Inn Ibn Battuta Mall you can reach The Beach at JBR in 20 minutes or less by car or metro, and spend the day soaking up the rays on the shores of the Arabian Gulf or take a traditional dhow through the Marina and sail past Bluewaters Island, home to Caesars Palace and Ain Dubai.

For more thrills and spills, head to Dubai Parks and Resorts. You’ll find your favourite stars of the big screen like Shrek, Madagascar and the Smurfs as you race between rollercoasters.

With both hotels within easy reach of Dubai Metro, you can zip across the city for a whistle-stop tour of Dubai. Scale new heights at the Burj Khalifa, or take in the local history with an Abra ride along Dubai Creek, stopping at the souks and barter with sellers for gold, spices or silk.

Here for a long time?

Expo 2020 Dubai is open from 1 October 2021 until 31 March 2022. If you’re planning an extended stay, you can get great rates for long stays at Premier Inn hotels in Dubai.

You can save up to 20% on stays of 4 nights or more, so why not extend that business trip and take a well-deserved holiday too? Or if you’re looking for short term accommodation without the hassle of bills and surprise charges each month, our long stay rates could be for you.

Kick back at the pool, work out in our gyms or catch up with friends and colleagues with a bite to eat in our bars and restaurants. We’ve got the basics covered too, with laundry services, free WiFi and free parking at all our hotels in Dubai.
