This may be the oldest hotel in Dubai but it is one of the best we have stayed in. The staff go out of their way to assist with everything you need,the rooms are modern & spotless & the breakfast was lovely. We had a room on the creek side & the day view was very active with the evening...

The hotel was nice. Could not really fault it. The area it is in is nice and close to Larissa Station which was good but the area generally is run down at the moment, but I did feel safe. A bit of a walk to the closest restaurants, but there is a Carrefors across the road which was a bonus.

The welcome provided by the reception staff and porters was excellent. My room was clean and a good size, plus had a wonderful view out over the creek. I had a couple of very comfortable nights' sleep. The hotel is very well located: it is 5min walk to Baniyas Sq Metro Station as well as the Abra station for a...

This is apparently one of the oldest hotels in Dubai but has been tastefully modernised and decorated. My one night stay was very comfortable and it would be hard to fault the room. The hotel is, as far as I am aware, 'dry', so it might be better to look elsewhere if this is important to you. On the other...

Booked this hotel after reading several positive reviews in Tripadvisor and as usual, it paid off. Nice hotel, nice staff and decent accommodation. I travelled to Dubai with my Mom and my brother and we stayed here for 5 nights. We did not use their restaurant or other room service but our stay was calm, peaceful and enjoyable. I would...

We stayed here for 4 nights recently on the way to the Far East & because we wanted to experience the metropolis of Dubai. We found a good deal on a hotel sight & booked what is termed a "souk view room." However I had noted that most people recommend a creek view room which weren't on offer on any...

I first stayed on the creek a year ago at the Radisson Blu and that's when I first saw and went to enquire about this hotel. In Sept 2015 I chose to stay here for a few days but unfortunately got sick due to heat exhaustion so couldn't enjoy or rate the facility properly. I've just spent 4 nights here...
