          Good location for walking old Dubai. Historic buildings near by. Service excellent with friendly staff and good quality breakfast. However......... noisy airco needed maintenance and drain of shower was not operating properly. Comment to staff gave no significant improvement.

          The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the
          air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders

          uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really

          of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily
