About Zabeel House Mini by Jumeirah™
Zabeel House MINI by Jumeirah is the first hotel to open in the Zabeel House by Jumeirah collection. Labeled ‘upscale casual’, meaning that the hotels feature sharp design and smart service, are informal in approach with a moderate price point, each property in the collection is located in an interesting neighborhood.
The first hotel in the new Zabeel House by Jumeirah collection is described as ‘Maximum Attitude, Minimum Frills’, emphasizing the focus on creating a playful and fun guest experience that is super pocket-friendly and strips away non-essentials that drive the cost of a hotel room upwards. However, that doesn’t mean a boring, featureless stay- expect comfy rooms, smart services and inspiring designs for the art lovers!
Located in the new Al Seef district by Meeras, along the banks of Dubai’s much-loved creek, close to the Al Fahidi cultural historical neighborhood, with easy public transport links to Downtown Dubai, parks and beaches.
The rooms are just like the rest of the hotel- quirky, stylish and made for Instagram, with a different story to find in every corner. Fresh, young and colorful – reminiscent of a hip city apartment: this is for the traveler who wants to stay in a resident’s apartment but doesn’t want to make their own bed. Furniture and airy partitions replace walls to delineate the spaces that are washed with light, both busy and calm at the same time. The Courtyard, a vast outdoor space perfect for sitting outside with a laptop, coffee or book, which will fast become home of music and art events and activations. The plunge pool up on the roof with a sunbathing area, bean bags, and hanging chairs. And a small but perfectly formed gym is open 24-hours a day.
NOTE: Booking a Pocket Room is super affordable, starting from AED 280 (for bookings prior to June 14th, offer valid until the end of September 2018). Normal prices range from AED350 (Summer) and AED495 (Winter).
If you’re looking for a charming, artsy, and quirky staycation that does not compromise on quality or burn a hole in your pocket, then you’ve hit the jackpot! Zabeel House MINI by Jumeirah is close to the charming, historic Dubai Creek; located in the new Al Seef district by Meraas. You will be sure to enjoy the friendly neighborhood with a lot of shops, cafes, and pop-ups on the doorstep, blending into the city’s past.
Do look out for the bikes at the entrance – ask a member of the hotel team and you can take one out for a ride around the neighborhood. The best part? It’s completely free. Additionally, a short walk or bike ride away and you will find two of Dubai’s historic attractions- Al Fahidi and the Textile Souk. The nearby Burjuman Metro station means it’s an easy ride to most of the city’s other attractions or you can take an abra across the creek to the Gold Souk.
Cu is the only restaurant at Zabeel house and has a very minimalistic vibe to it. They serve free water and are quite particular about the environment, so no plastic at all. The interiors are pretty funky and the staff is super friendly. The breakfast did not have too many options, but the food was quite healthy. Dinner, on the other hand, was great! The lamb rack was made superbly and the curried prawns were delicious. The beef skewers were succulent as well. Cu is definitely a great idea for a relaxed dinner that’s not too harsh on your wallet while you can enjoy a nice stroll along Al Seef after.
