We have an overnight layover (8pm - 8am) in Dubai. Where should we stay? Under 200 USD? Close to airport?
we are going to South Africa for our honeymoon with a layover in Dubai. We land (after 15 hours) at 8pm, and leave at 8am the next morning. I dont' know if we'll get an opportunity to adventure around the city or not... I'm looking for a place that is very conveniently located to the airport, clean, and inexpensive. Any thoughts or suggestions? How hard is it to get in and out of the airport.
There is a hotel now at the airport http://www.dubaiairport.com/DIA/English/MainMenu/Passenger+Services/Dubai+International+Hotel which is in the new Emirates terminal.
Alternatively, other local hotels include Le Meridien which is right next to the airport, or the Crowne Plaza or Intercontinental at Festival City which are really close.

I would suggest a hotel near to the Metro so that you could take a ride on the metro and have a glimpse of Dubai within the short period of stay. Make sure you immediately get onto the Metro since the timings are not overnight. Premier Inn is a good Option for the short stay and you may be able to get it as a package along with a Visit Visa.
