We stayed at Barjeel four nights. Great price, great soul even though it's a new-build in the old Arab style. Location beside the Dubai Creek is easy to get to via the train from the Airport - Red Line to Union, then Green Line from Union to Al Ghubaiba. Exit #4 from the station takes you almost to the back... More

Stayed there for an extended weekend.. We loved the hotel and the real heritage experience :) The location is great directly at the creek and near the Old Souq, metro also nearby, so get around quickly and easily. The room was large and clean, staff nice and helpful. Also the price is quite reasonable compared to the other large hotels.... More

Don't be put off by the (very cheap) price. The Barjeel is simply excellent. Don't get me wrong, I was expecting to have to pay upwards of £100 a night for somewhere with character in Dubai, or sell my soul and stay at a "safe" chain hotel, so when I saw the Barjeel I didn't believe the photos were right....

We traveled to Dubai during the last week of May. Heat was unbearable! So I was happy when we entered our room and the A/C was blasting! Aside from that we enjoyed a big bed, spacious room and bathroom, working tv, fridge, and safe. In addition, to small closet with hangers and blow dryer (but it didn't work!). The staff... More

Barjeel Heritage Guest House was the absolutely best choice for us. Its location in the older part of Dubai (Bur Dubai) provided easy access to the souks and historical sites as well as inclusion in the multi-cultural aspect of working Dubai. The service in the reception office by Rose Ann was exceptional no matter what our needs. Our room was... More

This is a small boutique hotel located waterfront in old Dubai. It is perfectly located near the metro and ferry station enabling cheap and easy access to all of Dubai's attractions. The room was large, clean and comfortable with traditional decor. Breakfast was extra - simple but nice and also reasonably priced. The hotel appeared to be a restored old... More

Excellent place to stay if you want to experience the old Dubai with the Souk and creek, right on the river, beautifully built in the ancient style. Breakfast has to be booked in advance, nice breakfast room (also a restaurant).

This old-style courtyard hotel is much better placed than appears on the map:- it is in fact right on the waterfront on the apex of the bend of The Creek, 80m from the Al Gubaiba metro station (easy journey from the airport. If you come by car, ask to be dropped off at the metro station car park), 300m from... More

Most importantly this is a hidden jewel. It's location is in the heart of bur Dubai right on Dubai Creek. Just steps from the metro, the water taxi, and the souk. It is a small boutique hotel with very nice modern rooms. It is a guesthouse with replica wind towers so windows are limited. The restaurant is very good and... More

The disparity of Dubai is incredible. I would think most people visit to see the big buildings, big malls, and big palm tree islands. We actually enjoyed the old part of the city the most, and this hotel is the perfect hotel to see it. Location is fantastic for this; it's right on the metro line (literally right behind the... More
