Premier Inn Ibn Battuta triumphs at the Middle East Hospitality Excellence Awards 2017 confirming its place as the hotel of choice for families and business travellers
Premier Inn Ibn Battuta recently claimed the prestigious Hotel of the Year Award, confirming its place as a must-stay hotel for families looking for high-standard services at a reasonable price.

Families and business travellers looking for mid-scale accommodation in the UAE should take note of this property for its convenient location, excellent facilities and its competitive rates and packages.
The Premier Inn’s value-add “kids stay and eat breakfast free” and “early check in, late check out” campaigns, exclusive online booking benefits with premierinn.ae and all-inclusive packaged rates to include tickets to some of the UAE’s biggest attractions, have all helped to capture the attention of consumers and industry alike here in the UAE.

We are always looking for ways to maximise guest experience for travellers and their families.
