People going on holidays to Dubaisoon may be able to get a bargain when it comes to hotel rooms, it has been reported.

According to the National, some places have cut their rates by as much as 30 per cent in a bid to attract travellers and increase their competitiveness as more hotels are built.

Even four and five-star accommodations have cut their rates, with many removing surcharges that guests normally pay for things like Wi-Fi and air conditioning.

However, individual chains denied that Dubai is suffering a downturn in tourism, pointing out that they are mostly enjoying occupancy rates of 90 per cent as people flock to the Emirates for the festive season.

In September, Stuff.co.nz urged Britons going on holidays to Dubai to always pre-book their accommodation, since most hotels quickly get full for the period between October and April.

It added that Europeans made up the largest group of travellers to Dubai after Arabs in 2007.
