Great place for short stay

This is the best hotel I ever been as a single traveler for a short holiday. With good location opposite on the road of Dubai Museum and close to old market and a mosque, you may see Dubai Creek through the window of the room. The are two inhabited historic villages not far, and clothes market, super market, fruit & vege shops, pharmacy are all within walking distance. Room is Arabic style and clean, staff is friendly. I'd like to mention Big Bus one-day tour available at business center in the hotel. It was really good experience, very helpful to know the city of Dubai and some culture of Arabic. The tour included a ticket of Dubai Museum & a 40-minute cruise around Dubai Creek, and was quite flexiable that you may get off any stop you like.

Fab getaway

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Staff were very helpful, rooms were spacious and clean, hotel is very well located. Lots to do nearby. Got a good rate on the hotel booking so was definitely worth it. Would recommend to a friend. Only downside was the pool is quite small and there is a mosque nearby so you can hear the early morning prayer calls very vey loudly. Otherwise had a great stay!

Good hotel, bad internet

The location was great and the room was nice. Although the bathroom had a funky smell. However, I had an executive room and expected the internet to be working. It was very spotty and I had to call the front desk to send an IT person to fixt it twice. When it did work, sometimes it would just stop. I was told that I could use the internet in the lobby, but then what was the point of paying more for a business class room?

Amazing!!

The staff at this hotel were the best I've ever experienced. They were extremely accommodating when we had issues with our airline & had to stay another night. They went & got us our taxis!! They made the effort to learn our names & room numbers to ensure we felt valued. Nothing we asked was too much trouble.

A favorite in Dubai

The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, as well as professional. I love the rooms, which are comfy and nicely furnished and spacious. The location, right across from Dubai Museum and the Bastakiya art district, and ready for a stroll along Dubai Creek, is ideal for visitors. You can take a short abra ride over to Deira, or walk to the Metro to see the rest of the city. Two tips: the pool is a bit small, so it's good to go early in the morning before anyone else comes. And get a Thai massage at Zaitoon!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

If you are lucky enough to be there on a Friday during the months when it's not scalding hot, take a taxi to Dubai Creek Park. Bring some food and a shawl to sit on, just to people-watch, and you will see what paradise is like. The park is filled with families and friends of all nationalities, enjoying themselves in the freedom of safety that Dubai maintains.

Great value and location to old Dubai

If you like to experience the old Dubai with Arabian architecture, palaces, mosques, markets and a boat or taxi ride on a picturesque Dubai creek then this hotel is the best location. Everything is in walking distance including 10 min walk to subway or a bus station. It doesn't offer the luxurious lodging as some other hotels but the location, value and staff make up for it!

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Taking a bus, metro or water taxi is a great economical way to travel plus it offers a local experience. Taxi boat at night is magical. Metro is a high end! But purchase a reloadable card at either metro or bus station and use it as you go. You need to swipe it on both entry and exit because you pay for distance. Don't cheat in the bus because we got an random audit in the bus.
