We stayed one whole week in Riviera inspired by several positive reviews. And we were not disappointed! Its location in excellent by the Creek and it is possible to observe activities of an old style harbor and old wooden merchant ships. Close to abra and metro stations. Our first night was on 2nd floor due to fully booked hotel and... More

Really enjoyed a 2 night stop over at the Riviera. Found the staff to be friendly, helpful and welcoming. The room was a good size and although the decor is a bit dated it is clean and accommodating. I note a previous comment about the repetitive music in the restaurant at breakfast and yes endless Celine Dion is far from... More

We stayed at the Riviera for two nights, breaking a trip to Europe. Airport transfers were part of our booking and were no problem even though our flight arrived at 5.30am. We were also allowed to check-in when we arrived at the hotel at about 6.30am, no extra charge, and because we were leaving before breakfast on the final day,... More

Stayed here for 6 nights in September 2014, rooms are clean and spacious but make sure you book a room with a 'Souk' view as you will undoubtedly have one of the best views in Dubai, from the balcony you can see the Burj Khalifa clearly in the distance and the dhows on the river, at night time the dhows...

We chose this hotel so we could wander along the Creek and also for its proximity to the Souks, but sadly it was too hot to wander anywhere outside (45 C most days!) The view of the Creek was excellent and endlessly interesting, but our balcony was too hot to stay on for more than 2 minutes. Live and learn:... More

I stayed here whilst travelling alone for 3 nights on a stopover, and found the hotel to be perfect for this purpose. The room was spotless and very spacious, wifi worked perfectly. The staff were very helpful and friendly, always quick to respond to any queries and help with my plans. I would definitely stay here again, but would probably... More

Nice place, staff good and great location for exploring local area. Arrived late at night, no booking and opted for option with 1pm checkout which was great. 1 down side was they have no bar or alcohol in mini bar which I felt like after a long flight. Stayed in room facing car park, aircon a bit noisy, but overall... More

The Riviera is not the fanciest hotel in Dubai, but may well be among the most comfortable. I had occasion to be there for an extended period, and very quickly felt I had become part of the family. The staff are lovely, and go out of their way to help. The location too is great, being not too far from... More
