Dubai - Is there such a thing as a mid-price hotel?

Having organised a stopover in Dubai on our way back from New Zealand, I'm a bit shocked at the prices I've been quoted by Trailfinders for two nights in a hotel (£600+)for the four of us (and that's with DS 4, and DD 2, sharing our room). Has anyone stayed in a more economical option in Dubai that they'd recommend? We want to be close to the beach and able to access the various sights and attractions easily. Many thanks.

Hi Maggie,
Check out the Ibis on Sheikh Zayed Road. It's modern, clean and only about 2 years old as well as being cheap and well placed for restaurants and bars.
Loads of hotels to check out on Tripadvisor and you will also find a discussion forum if you wish to post your question there. In fact use the search facility as someone may have already asked for recommendations of inexpensive hotels.

Thanks everyone. Have actually booked the Oasis Beach Hotel. Very good reviews on and reasonable (in Dubai terms!) at £135 per night. It's also one of the limited number of hotels who'll allow two children in the room. Thanks again.
