This hotel is perfectly situated in old Dubai, perfect for visiting the Textile Souk and a short trip across the creek to the gold & spice Souks. The hotel itself is very comfortable and clean. We had the VIP package which is a nice bonus with a few perks in the hotel. There are four restaurants in the hotel which...

From the moment we arrived we loved this hotel, even though we arrived late (3am) we were greeted with fresh juice and warm smiles. Our family suite was lovely with a view across to the Dubai Museum. You can wander down to the Creek and check out the Souks and the metro is a short walk away. We only stayed...

This hotel is fantastic, i loved the rooms.....so comfortable i didnt want to go out. The staff are so helpful. It has a laundry nearby and the grocery store. Free shuttle to airport. I arrived at midnight and was exhausted. The pool wasnt exactly amazing...but okay if u want a dip. But its near the souq and river.

The Arabian Courtyard is a city centre hotel, very near the souks, the abra station and within short walking distance of the Metro. The hotel has been designed to blend in and give an Arabian feel. The front of the hotel faces the Dubai Museum, an interesting view, not sure that the back of the hotel would provide anything as...

Very surprised with reviews about his hotel, as we thought it was absolutely terrible. When we arrived we were upgraded to the Executive level and the receptionist told us that we could use the Executive room. We had breakfast in the morning and we were told that we had to pay and we could not use the rooms facilities. I...

We stayed here for 4 nights after a 10 day stay in the Maldives for our honeymoon. We were super impressed with the attention to detail in the furnishing of the hotel and the sincerity of the staff. I had an accident while in the Maldives which meant that when I arrived in Dubai I required a further hospital visit...

Great place to stay! Lovely staff, great location, reasonably priced, lovely pub, close to Metro, bus stations and airport. Two hours free internet per day, opposite Dubai museum and located in Bur Dubai, which is amazing to visit as it is in complete contrast to the new part of Dubai.

Our three night stay was just right and good value for money. The hotel was flexible in providing breakfast on arrival as we were arriving and departing on early morning flights. The pool and restaurant facilities are good with several options for in house dining. The unexpected deal clincher was the free courtesy bus to Jumeirah Beach Park, complete with...

Staying in The Creek

Neighbourhood Profile
The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original air conditioning. Home to the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding and the Dubai Museum, the old buildings also house a range of cafes, shops and art galleries. Often called “the real Dubai,” this is a wonderful place to lose yourself before catching an abra across the creek to the spice souk, where your senses will be overwhelmed with tastes, smells, and sounds.
