5 Best Places for Laundry Service in Dubai

If you’re looking for the best places to get your laundry done, we’ve got you covered. In this article, we rounded up our top picks for the best laundry services Dubai has to offer. 

We also cover questions such as the cost and what to consider when choosing the best laundry service provider. Let’s get started right now!

How much do laundry services cost? 

Of course, the price for laundry services will depend on the quantity, which service provider you’ll choose, and the inclusions of the service. Service providers usually have their own pricing structure. 

Some charge by the bag, by article of clothing, or by the weight. So it really depends on which service provider you’ll pick. 

The good thing is that you can ask for a quote from them so you’ll know how much exactly you need to shell out. 

However, to give you a ballpark price, here’s what a service provider charges for two loads of laundry:

Wash and fold49 AED

Laundry Lounge is a self-service laundromat. This works if you’re the type who doesn’t want your laundry mixed up with others and prefer to do your laundry yourself. 

We appreciated the fact that they had free coffee and wifi at the place. It made washing clothes a much more enjoyable experience. 

We give them major plus points for their friendly ambience and accommodating staff who assisted us willingly. They were also very patient in answering questions and more than happy to guide us in how things worked. 

As for pricing, they charge 35 AED for wash and dry of a single load of laundry. Each cycle of wash and dry lasts for 30 minutes; should you exceed that, you have to pay 5 AED for every extra 10 minutes. 

You can bring your own detergent, but they also sell laundry soap for 10 AED in case you forget. Folding and drop-off also cost an additional 10 AED, should you choose to avail of that. 

If you want to make them your regular laundromat, they also offer plans that you can try, but they’re a little more expensive. Check this table to see the cost of their plans: 

Individual PlanFamily PlanMega PlanGrand Plan
250 AED500 AED1000 AED2000 AED

Based on our poll of their customers, they are satisfied by the convenient laundry system that they have.

However a possible problem you may encounter is the waiting time when there are a lot of people. Although there are about 10 machines and dryers, if you come at a particularly busy time, it’s possible that you may have to wait. 

The good thing is that it is open 7 days a week and until late. So if possible, time your visits outside of peak hours. 

The good thing is if you do have to wait, it’s right next to a bunch of restaurants and coffee shops that you can go to in order to pass the time. There’s also a free play area for children nearby that’s perfect if you need to bring your kids along with you. 

Pros

  • Self service
  • Free wifi and coffee
  • Accommodating staff
  • Convenient system

Cons

  • Expensive plans
  • Possible waiting time during busy hours

Customer Reviews 

Highly recommend this to everyone 

Happy to have found this self service laundry shop! The staff were very accommodating, especially Dipankar, the machines were clean and I highly recommend this to everyone since it saves time and you can have your clothes dried for just 30 minutes at a very affordable price! Overall, I’m so thankful to this shop! Will definitely come back again! -Carmi Lao 

Excellent customer service

High quality washers and dryers. Excellent customer service. Convenient card system. We were told by our hotel that there was no self-service laundromat in Dubai. But with a little help from Google we found this place and were super happy to do our own as we are a family of 5 visiting here for a month. The place was clean. There are convenient shops next door and nearby to pass time as we waited. -Stephanie Dobson

OnWheels Laundry has been in the laundry business for over 25 years. Their experience and expertise is evident in their near-perfect 4.7 Google rating and established clientele. 

We think that they offer a convenient way to schedule laundry services. They offer pick-up and delivery services, making it a strong choice if you don’t have the time to drop off your laundry yourself. 

Their normal delivery time is within 48 hours of booking. If you need your laundry delivered sooner, there are also options for that but there are additional fees that can get a bit steep. 

Normal48 hours
Urgent24 hours50% extra of total cost
Express12 hours100% extra of total cost
Super Express6-8 hours150% of total cost 

They are most well known for their laundry, drycleaning, and pressing services. However, they also offer a wide range of services as you can see below: 

  • Upholstery and room cleaning 
  • Carpet and curtain cleaning 
  • Leather cleaning and polishing 
  • Wedding gown cleaning 
  • Professional alteration 
  • Bags and shoes cleaning 

They’re a one-stop shop for anything you need cleaned and restored, which makes it very convenient especially if you need more than just your laundry done. 

We tried the booking process for pickup on their website and found it to be intuitive and fast. They charge you per article of clothing and pricing will depend on what type of clothing it is. 

Their detailed price list is also seen there when you book, so you can already see how much you need to pay at a glance. It can get a bit steep especially if you have a lot of heavy items. 

So if you need a lot of suits, overcoats, and beddings washed, it might be best to consider other options that charge by the number of loads instead of individual pieces. 

They are open everyday, which is great. However, they start later compared to their competitors, making it inconvenient for those who only have time to attend to their laundry in the morning. 

Pros

  • 25 years of experience
  • Offers pick up and delivery
  • Wide range of services aside from laundry
  • Fast booking process on website

Cons

  • Charges per article of clothing; can be expensive for heavier items
  • Late opening time

Southside Laundry Service offers washing, pressing, and drycleaning. They even do carpet shampooing, which is an interesting bonus.  

We find it convenient that they offer a pick-up and delivery option for free. This is great especially if you’re too busy to go to the laundromat yourself. 

You’ll be able to get your laundry delivered back to you in 24-48 hours. It’s just unfortunate that they don’t have express delivery options should you need your clothes back sooner. 

Should you drop your laundry personally, it is located in a convenient location next to a supermarket. So you can do a quick grocery run while waiting for your laundry to be done. 

As for pricing, they charge per item of clothing. Prices depend on what kind of clothing it is. 

We took a peek at their price list on their site and we noticed they have lower prices compared to their competitors. So if ever you’re on a tight budget, this is a good contender. 

They also have package deals where they give you a bag that can hold 5 kg of clothing. See the prices of their packages below: 

Wash & Press5 kg bag65 AED
Wash & Fold5 kg bag49 AED
Suit Up Offer5 suits (dry clean and steam press)99 AED

They are pretty active on social media, where they post promos and reduced prices. So give them a follow and keep your eyes peeled for their posts if you want to score a good deal. 

They don’t have an option to book on their website, however, which we think can be inconvenient. You have to call them or send them a message on Whatsapp to book for pick-up instead.   

Pros

  • Reasonable price compared to competitors
  • Active on social media where they also post their promos
  • Free pickup and delivery (within 24-48 hours)
  • Has package deals

Cons

  • No express delivery option
  • Website doesn’t have booking capability

Customer Reviews:

Definitely recommend their services 

Southside Laundry always picks up and delivers on the days they say they will. They advise when they will be later than originally agreed and never take longer than 1 hour to respond to WhatsApp messages. Their ironing is of excellent quality (I have not used their other services yet) The staff are courteous and professional in their interactions, I definitely recommend their services. -Roanda Steyn 

Great service with good communication and at a brilliant price

Fantastic laundry service. They never fail to provide a great service, with good communication and at a brilliant price. I would highly recommend Southside and now use them weekly. BONUS for even reminding me about my own dry cleaning! -Ben Hooper

Whites was established in 2019, so they’re a bit younger compared to their competitors. However they are well worth the mention because of their impressive track record and high customer satisfaction. 

They have three branches in Dubai: Dubai Marina Mall, Waitrose, and Emaar Marina Walk. These branches are located in shopping centers, making it convenient to find and go to. 

Should you have no time to drop off and get your laundry yourself, they offer pick-up and delivery free of charge granted that your total reaches 100 AED.  They also promise next day delivery, which is great if you need your laundry back right away. 

Aside from washing and pressing, they also offer couture and bridal service. This shows that they can handle complicated laundry jobs with great care. 

In their own words, they give garments the most delicate treatment. This holds up based on our experience and what other customers say. 

They are very particular with how they handle laundry, even taking into consideration specific requests from customers. To be able to do that and still give back laundry the next day is pretty impressive to us. 

Should their service be not up to your standards, they will redo the service for free. You just need to coordinate with their staff, who we think are very friendly and accommodating. 

The quality of their service comes with a price, though. We noticed that they charge higher than their competitors. 

They charge you per article of clothing, with a specific price point for each type of clothing. They offer laundry bundles at a discount, but the prices are still pretty steep. 

For you to see what we mean, we listed some of their laundry bundles in the table below: 

Clean & Press 2 items3 items5 items9 items
Tops and bottoms32 AED44 AED64 AED99 AED
Dresses69 AED
Casuals22 AED32 AED49 AED74 AED

Their wash and fold bags, which is a good option for clothes that don’t need pressing, costs 99 AED. 

What’s noteworthy about them is that if you’re a regular customer, you get a rewards card. You enjoy benefits the more you avail of their laundry services, which we think is a good system. 

Pros

  • Can handle specific requests
  • Next day delivery
  • Free redo of services
  • Convenient location, 3 branches

Cons

  • Younger compared to competitors
  • Fees are on the high side

Customer Reviews: 

Consistent and excellent

Not a single bad experience after many orders. I don’t usually leave reviews, but the service has been so consistent and excellent that I feel compelled to recommend these guys. -Ahmad AlKadri

The value contra price is very good

They have a proper call center with well trained employees who are kind and speak English well. They follow standard operating procedures and the employees are aware of them, refer to them. I was informed about special discounts after my large quantity drop. Their delivery person is dressed in uniform and wears a mask, he also speaks advanced English. The clothes smell moderate and cleaned properly. The delivery came a bit early but the driver managed the change politely and accurately. The value contra price is very good. I paid the same to another laundry with much lower quality service. – Gabriella Gulyas

Image Laundry has over 20 years of experience in the laundry services business. They also have 42 branches all over Dubai, so they are very accessible. 

They offer free pick-up and drop off of your laundry within 48 hours. However note that large orders and those that require stain removal might take longer than that. 

We asked and they do have a rush service if you need your clothes to be delivered in 24 hours, but you have to pay a small fee. 

Image Laundry offers a wide range of services. Aside from washing, pressing, and drycleaning, they also offer the following: 

  • Alterations and repairs 
  • Bag and shoe spa
  • Wedding gown cleaning and restoration 
  • Carpet and upholstery cleaning 
  • Soft toy cleaning 

Based on their breadth of services, we see that they’re very versatile and can handle different laundry needs. 

As for pricing, they charge per article of clothing as well.  Compared to other service providers, we think the cost of their services are mid-range. 

They have a running promo if you’re a first time user. You get 40% off on your first order, which we think is a fantastic deal. 

They also offer packages that make it more affordable. So they’re a great option if you have bulk orders. 

For you to get a general sense of their pricing, here are the package deals price list: 

10 shirts, 10 trousers 69 AED
20 pcs of clothing140 AED
50 pcs of clothing325 AED
100 pcs of clothing550 AED

They have an easy booking process on their website, which we found convenient. It is very intuitive and their prices are shown there, so you know exactly how much you’re going to spend. 

You can request for pickup there or contact them through Whatsapp. Either way, they respond quickly, which is a green flag to customers. 

Based on our poll of their customers, they’re most impressed by this service provider’s friendly staff and reasonable prices. They also like how Image Laundry is very punctual when picking up and dropping off orders. 

One downside to this service provider is it is closed on Fridays and they open later than other laundromats. So if ever you do decide to go with them, make sure to take this into account to avoid scheduling conflicts. 

Pros

  • 40% off on all services for first order
  • Over 42 different locations
  • 20 years of experience

Cons

  • Closed on Fridays
  • Delivery time takes longer on weekends

Customer Reviews 

Excellent service, very clean

After having some pretty nightmarish experiences with pretty much every dry cleaner I’ve encountered here, I thankfully stumbled across Image Laundry which made my life incredibly easier. Low cost compared to everyone else. No missing pieces. Great dry clean and pressing. Excellent service. Very clean. I will only use Image Laundry and recommend all those experiencing issues with their cleaners or looking for quality and affordable cleaners to use Image. -Soraya Spahi

Reliable service and affordability

We have been using Image Laundry for almost 8 years now. Highly recommended! We’ve switched flats but stayed with their service for so many reasons. The guys are very responsive and professional, on top of that the reliable service and affordability is undeniable. Please keep it up, Image Laundry Team and more power! -Lil Aquino

What do I consider when choosing a laundry service provider? 

With so many laundromats to choose from, it can get a bit difficult to pick one. Here are factors to look into when deciding on which service provider to go with: 

Location 

Although most laundromats offer delivery and pick-up, your proximity will still determine proximity costs. If you’re the type who prefers to drop off and pick up laundry yourself, it is imperative that it’s easy and convenient to go to. 

Cost 

It’s best to find one that fits your needs and your budget. Different laundromats have different price structures so try to find one where you’ll get the best deal. 

Try to estimate how much laundry your household produces and go from there. 

Reviews and referrals 

Reading through reviews may save you a headache of bad service. Reviews, as usual, are a good litmus test to check a service provider’s efficiency and customer service. 

Range of services

Since everyone’s needs vary, it’s nice to find a service provider that can offer a wide range of services that can meet specific needs and requirements.
