I will be in Dubai on a stopover on November 9th. I get in around 1pm and will leave for the airport by 7am the next day. I am looking for the best area to stay in that will be central and allow me to do a hop on hop off bus tour for the quick stop that I have there. Any help would be appreciated in recommending an area AND a hotel. I would like to spend around $200 or less for a hotel.
You can stay near to down town and take the down town hop on hope off bus tour. But I'm not sure in that area a hotel under 200$ try Al Manzil hotel. If you have time you also can see the sunset (18h) at kite beach.
But if you really want a cheap tour take the metro Dubai is overground. about 5 years ago
