We visited Dubai in a March 2014 and we are pleased we opted for this hotel. When you make a decision to go to Dubai you have to decide on what you want out of your city visit. If you want a hotel which is isolated from history or the beach this is not for you. We wanted a hotel... More

The Riviera Hotel in Dubai has recently been remodeled so the rooms are very nice. Some face the Dubai Creek. The location is walking distance to gold and spice markets as well as the bus stop for the Big Red Bus (hop-on/hop-off). The staff could not have been more accommodating. The helped me set up a private tour to Abu... More

Easy to get taxi's to places a bit further away as main road in front of hotel. Bus stop nearby too (across the road) and creek taxi boats... More

This hotel is in the old part of Dubai and looks over the working Creek. Take the Abra boat for just a few AED across the Creek to the other side of town. This hotel is fine for a base for a short stay but not for you if you are looking for the modern high rise of downtown Dubai.... More

I stayed at the Hotel Riviera in January, 2014. This was my second stay at the hotel. The room I had this time was newly renovated, quite comfortable and large. Everything was spotless, and I had a very comfortable bed and a sofa. Breakfast was included and of good quality and variety. The location is good, a short walk from... More

I had a stopover in Dubai before travelling to Turkey and on the advice of a friend chose to stay at this hotel. The location is great if you want to see some of the old town charm - make sure you book a Creek view room - the balcony overlooks the Creek and has the charm of an ancient... More

This was my first time in Dubai and I wanted to have a good look at the old part of Dubai. The Riviera is an older hotel with older style furniture. I picked this hotel because of its location overlooking the creek and being close to the souks etc. and public transport, Bus stops very close and the metro at... More
