Al Barsha is a popular district of Dubai for many reasons. First, it is an inner district close to many attractions of the New Dubai area, which is the more modern and hi-tech part of the city. Second, Al Barsha is just right by the Sheikh Zayed Road along which also the Red Metro Line is running all across the city.

Al Barsha is full of hotels. The district, even though it is in the city, but it is a calm area rather, making it a sure choice for most of the people who travel to spend their vacations in Dubai. The district is right behind the famous Jumeirah district, the beach and luxury district of Dubai, in which there are so many attractions you must visit. In the Jumeirah Beach, you will find the best water parks in the world: the Wild Wadi Water Park nearby the hotel and the Aquaventure Water Park within the Atlantis the Palm hotel, which is really one of its kinds, on the outer rim of the Palm Jumeirah artificial tree shaped island. To the Aquaventure, you can get with the Monorail. Next to the Wild Wadi, you can find several other attractions too: the Burj Al Arab hotel, which is world famous for its shape and for being the only seven star hotels in the world and the Madinat Jumeirah, which is a beautiful shopping-hotel complex.

The city side of Al Barsha is great because the Mall of the Emirates is located there. Most hotels in Al Barsha advertise themselves as the shopping mall hotels and many of them even offer ski laces for rent, in order to ski in Ski Dubai’s unique attraction: the indoor ski slope with real snow and ice. The Mall of the Emirates is the second biggest shopping mall of Dubai and it has a great choice of all sorts of shops. Nearby the mall, there are several supermarkets too, which are often visited by those families who spend a long time in Dubai, staying in self-catering apartments.

The main choice of Al Barsha’s hotels is the economical hotels and the economical apartment hotels. Of course, there are several luxury hotels in the area, but those are right next to the Mall of the Emirates, the cheaper places are further. Many Al Barsha hotels offer shuttles to the Mall and to the beachside as well. You can also take great walks in the surroundings. Some of Al Barsha’s hotels are very close to the attractions of Jumeirah though.

Apartment hotels are relatively new choices of accommodations in Dubai, especially those that also have restaurants, but offer kitchen or kitchenette with their rooms. Many families opt for this choice because they are with children. The hotels of Al Barsha are normally nice with fair quality. They usually have rooftop swimming pools. Important to note that in Dubai, you might need your marriage papers and couples who are not married might have to stay in their own rooms separately. This is the Dubai law against which you cannot do anything.

However, Al Barsha is a great district and it is really worth staying here, inside the downtown of Dubai. It is a relatively new district, still with lots of construction works, but it already flourishes and makes it the most attractive hotel district of Dubai.
