Generally disgusting. Especially the food. Although cheap for Dubai, it was a rip off. An extremely disappointing experience never to be repeated and I would recommend anyone to avoid this sordid little hostelry.

BAD: I can't recommend this hotel to anyone. There was supposed be a pool and a gym but they were out of service. When I went to complain about it, the HOTEL MANAGER HIMSELF said that he can't help. So we paid for the pool and didn't get any refund or not even an apology for that. "Service" is terrible.... More

Staying in The Creek

Neighborhood 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.
