We didn't stayed on this hotel but we had the chance to have a tour of their rustic with a modern twist hotel. Special thanks to Kuya Bong who was sooo kind and accomodating. Really in my almost entire 10 yrs here in Dubai his...More
Dubai is very hot but we kept recovering from the heat at this charming hotel oasis. Great breakfast served by the delightful Joy and ever helpful Bong on the front desk. Room 1 was roomy and air conditioned. Have a lemon and mint cool drink....delicious
XVA is situated in the old town of Dubai. It has very tasteful rooms with good air conditioning (essential when it is 45 degrees outside !) The staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel is near the metro station.

This place had "LOVE IN EVERY DETAIL" written all over. Never seen a hotel that had so many small, cute and unique details, whether it was all the modern art hanging on the walls, or the very green backyard, welcome fruits, history about your room...More

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.

The nearest pickup point is near an Arabian Teahouse. There is a drop-off point for taxis/cars. You need to transport luggage by foot, about 3-5 minutes' walk depending whether you enter the front or back entrance of AVA Hotel. The back entrance is close at night. The pavement is smooth and it is on smooth level ground. We asked for late check out, but was turned down. Fair enough, there were not many rooms in the hotel during busy season to allow them the luxury of offering late checkouts. Hope the above info helps.

We are in the pedestrian area and therefore not visible from the main street. However, we are literally 2 mins away from the taxi drop off, parking area and the main street.

We arrived around 11pm on the 29th Dec. By the time we got out it was pass midnight. Plenty of Taxi waiting outside. From memory costs around $30USD. The problem we encountered was XVA is relatively unknown (small hotel). The Taxi driver had difficulty finding it on her GPS. There is a 30-50meter walk from the road down a small alleyway so it pays to printout some Google map instructions for the driver and also inform yourself how to get there.
