The hotel is located in a shady, smelly and crowded area, in Deira, not in Dubai. We arrived on Dec 31 to find out that our online booked room (booked months ago),already PAID is not available. Receptionist lied in our face, saying that they have an urgent maintenance on one floor, and this is the reason they cannot accommodate us.... More

This is very low category hotel in crowded location only meters behind Nasser square. Impression is dissapointing and prices very high for such a dirty place. It is categorised with 2 stars but honestly real value is 1. Rooms are ok,bed is big but there is a terrible smell inside. Breakfast is better to forget,restaurant extremely dirty.There is a swimming... More

It was my first trip to Dubai. And I trusted a travel company that promised a cheap trip with a hotel in the center of Dubai life. Now "Rafee" is my definition word tused to describe something of the worst quality one can imagine. It is not a hotel for business, neither it is a hotel for leisure. It is... More

There is a slight problem with the smell and A/C system. If you want housekeeping to clean your room, you will have to stay in and literally tell them what to do. If you want a proper meal, you will have to eat out, that goes out for breakfast as well . Nothing is acceptable - nor choice, nor the... More

I came into Dubai without a reservation and booked this hotel from the airport booking desk upon arrival. The shower leaked onto the bathroom floor, the toilet was shaky, and the air conditioner temperature was not adjustable so it blasted cold air the whole time it was on. The free breakfast was not great, and be careful if you get... 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.
