Renting an Apartment in Deira
The hub of commerce, heritage and history.
Deira, one of the oldest neighbourhoods of the city, is the perfect amalgamation of Old and New Dubai. An area of historical significance, it is considered to be one of the most important trading and commercial centres of Dubai. Because of this commercial advantage, it is no surprise that Deira is also one of the most popular areas to rent apartments in. Heavily populated by mainly the expatriate community, it is the go-to choice for those looking to rent affordable apartments of the studio or one to four-bedroom variety in a vicinity close to essential facilities like schooling, healthcare and supermarkets.
Connected to the rest of the city via the Al Rigga and Union metro station, as well as a widespread RTA bus network, Deira is as residential as it gets. Landmarks like the Deira Gold Souk, a bustling gold market that's been around for almost a hundred years, Heritage House, a house constructed in the 1890's that now serves as a depiction of how daily life was back in the day and Al Ahmadiya School, a private school from the 1900's turned into a musuem are all symbols of the Emirate's history. The presence of these sites and numerous five-star hotels like Hyatt Regency, Avani Deira, Crowne Plaza and Pullman Dubai Creek City Centre also makes Deira a hotspot for tourists.
There is plenty to choose from when it comes to shopping, dining and leisure in this area. Malls like Al Ghurair Centre, one of the oldest malls in Dubai, and City Centre Deira as well as the numerous markets and souks are packed with retail variety and dining options. Soak up some Emirati culture at one of the museums, take a shot or go sailing at the Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club and end the day with a five-course meal aboard a traditional dhow cruise on the waters of the Creek.
With the commercial rush and nightlife bustle, there is never a dull moment for the residents of Deira
