Default Dubai one news

Just listened to the news. Dubai Hotel occupancies rates sitting at 80pc for the 1st week of DSF.

I can't believe that..

Do people actually come here for a bargain?

it's not true...fairmont is at 20% (for sure), atlantis is at the same, and jumeirah have claimed 40% which probably means 20% too...

I heard from an inside source that Jumeirah was running at 30% and expected figures to drop lower. Lots have staff have been forced to take their vacations now which is pretty bad as most are already forced to take it all in one block and therefore plan in advance their 1 month off.

When booking our weekend break in Al Ain we were quoted US$210 per night for the three of us. Hubby sent the travel agents an e-mail saying US$145 was the maximum we were prepared to pay. They responded by saying okay. Maybe we should have offered less in the current climate!

I hope hotels will not fill even 10 percent of the rooms for 6 months.

the prices needs to be corrected

having a second thought about what you said it is unfair for them.

hotels are earning alot of money and paying them very little and this little is about to disappear.

but i think there are things that can not be avoided anywhere in the world.
