easyHotel in Dubai Welcomes Its First Guests
Dubai’s First Gold LEED-Certified Super Budget Hotel Breaks New Ground with Clean, Liveable, Affordable Accommodation
easyHotel Jebel Ali, the super budget brand hotel chain’s first venture outside Europe, on Monday (September 6) welcomed its first guests, many of them taking advantage of the offer of attractive budget price of AED 99 per night for a double-room.
easyHotel Jebel Ali, operated by Istithmar Budget Hotels, an Istithmar World company, is Dubai’s first 1-star hotel that offers a clean room equipped with basic amenities and the first budget hotel with a Gold LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certification, a widely accepted benchmark for high-performance green buildings.
easyHotel Jebel Ali remains true to the brand’s great value ‘no frills’ approach and is completely transparent on its services and pricing structure. Services such as housekeeping, luggage storage, early check in, late check out, vended snacks and drinks and wi-fi Internet access are available for a small additional charge to those guests who require them.
Announcing the opening of the easyHotel Dubai, Jebel Ali, Andy Watson, Acting Chief Executive Officer, Istithmar World, said:“Istithmar World is pleased to introduce to the regional market the concept of remarkable value for money through the easyHotel brand. We believe there is a real gap in the hotel sector here for quality accommodation at affordable prices and easyHotel Jebel Ali fills that void beautifully. We are confident that our offer of purpose-built hotel rooms at highly attractive rates and our policy of leaving upgrade decisions solely in the hands of our guests will find resonance in an increasingly cost-conscious market.”
easyHotel Jebel Ali is conveniently located inside the Jebel Ali Free Zone Authority (Jafza) with easy access from Sheikh Zayed Road and has parking for up to 50 cars. Guests arriving at Dubai International Airport can take a Metro Train to Ibn Batuta Mall Station or a quick taxi ride to reach easyHotel Jebel Ali.
easyHotel Jebel Ali is the first hotel to be established in Jafza, Dubai’s premier free zone, which is home to more than 6,500 companies and is adjacent to Jebel Ali Port, one of the largest container terminals in the world.
