Free transfers to and from the airport at specific times. A nice Arabian atmosphere and a spacious room. The hot and cold buffet breakfast was great. Service was very good and staff friendly. The gym and pool were great. The location was handy to the BigBus on-off bustop so you can explore Dubai. The Dubai museum was just over the... More

This hotel has a wonderful arabic atmosphere, which I found very refreshing after a full immersion in the ultra modern shopping malls. Furthermore, it is conveniently located in the heart of Dubai city, just in front of the old fort, which is now home of the beautiful Dubai museum. The hotel also has a spa and 3 different restaurants. The... More

We spent one night here on our way to the Seychelles. We wanted to see Dubai and this was a good location to start our trip. Friendly staff, clean rooms and a good location near the old Dubai area. The museum is across the street and worth a look. Very close to the airport and metro stations.

I loved everything about this Hotel. The service was impeccable and and the cleanest of rooms for the money you paid. I was on a short stay of 2 nights and my best guide to the Shopping Mall and City inroads was the Big Made guy who handles the door. Just out of the main door and to your left... More

We arrived early evening for a two night pre - Cruise stay. We were very pleased to be given an upgraded club room without asking for one. This included access to afternoon pastries/coffee as well as a small room for breakfast. Despite minor faults as mould under the hand basin & a cracked tile in the bathroom we couldn't fault...

For our first stay in Dubai we wanted a hotel that was close to the hop on hop off bus route and the Arabian Courtyard and Spa Hotel fitted the bill perfectly being right opposite the Dubai Museum. We had a spacious room in the seventh floor looking away from Dubai creek. The room was spacious, the bed comfortable and... More

I choose this hotel for the location, even though I was on business and could have spent more elsewhere. You are in the heart of Old Dubai and within walking distance of many of the markets. I also choose it because I thought it would be fun to get out of the typical sterile hotel room and go with more... 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.
