Lotus Hotel is one of the best moderately priced options in the city -- a good choice for budget-minded travelers wishing to explore Dubai's old city. The modern guest rooms are perfectly comfortable but on the small side, with satellite TVs and high-speed Internet access. The small marble lobby leads to a 24-hour international restaurant and bar, and there's a second restaurant serving Indian cuisine. Leisure activities include a rooftop pool, gymnasium, and Jacuzzi, as well as complimentary transfer to the beach. Service here is generally friendly and efficient.
