We stayed in room 419 as an Executive option and had a large separate lounge area with small kitchen facilities. We checked out the executive rooms on the 7th floor and felt we had done very well. We had stayed previously in 2007 and despite lots of comments about the hotel needing updating I would say that this could be... More

Well what a suprise. We were a little apprehensive as we pulled up at the hotel, not the usual scale of some hotels in dubai but the warmest reception greeted us. We arrived very early in the morning, fresh juice was handed to us which was a very welcomed gesture after travel for 15 hours. The room was clean and... More

We were completely delighted with this aging hotel in the center of Bastakiyya in Dubai. Our room, a suite, had a king-sized bed with a bed made out for our third family member in a separate area so that we all had space to ourselves. The decorations are fanciful and "exotic" in the best sense of the word. The location... More

We arrived in early morning and the reception staff couldn't have been more helpful. We only had to wait about 15 mins until we were shown to our room. Unfortunately we were given a double rather than two single beds and when the reception staff realised the mistake they swiftly put it right and we were given a delightful, larger... More

This is an older hotel, but it is clean and very well run. My standard room was very nice, and they have a couple of restaurants and a bar. The morning breakfast was wonderful with lots of choices, very good coffee, and great table service. As other reviewers have mentioned, this hotel is in a great location for shopping, walking,...

We visited this hotel twice in the last month on our journey to and from Australia. Twice we were offered an Executive Suite room which we found to be very spacious and comfortable. The staff were extremely helpful when my husband suffered a minor medical problem but needed to be taken to hospital. The hotel is situated in the old... More

This Hotel is near the Dubai Museum. It was a fine place to stay with plenty of shops surrounding it. They come alive at night and the shopping area is known as the Meena Bazaar. Check out the Dubai Museum then stroll down to the Old Souk. Take an Abra for 1 dirham across the creek to the spice market... 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.
