This is a 3 star hotel at best - definitely not 4 as advertised. Very tired and dated. Bathrooms in particular are small and dingy. My shower didn't work properly. However the major problem this hotel has is its location. If you intend to get straight into a taxi every time you go out it is fine, but most people... More

This hotel is in the heart of old Dubai. Right across the Museum and few blocks form the soukh. You can literally walk to the historical places in Old Dubai. The hotel itself is very dated and has a lot of character. It is authentic and the decor takes you back. Staff is very friendly and always willing to help.... More

My husband and I stayed here with our 2yr old. It is in the old part of Dubai and felt more authentic to us with the Arabian decor. The pool area is pretty basic and small but you can have a cold beer there. Good breakfast and location great in our opinion to go the the spice and gold Souks,... More

This hotel is located in the "old Dubai", opposite of the Dubai museum and quite close to the Creek. It has a special charme and we liked it very much. Sitting at the breakfast table with a view to the ship outside the Dubai museum is quite nice. We didn't check any of the restaurants, but there 3 or 4.... More

In a City State where 7 star hotels are becoming almost commonplace, it is refreshing to find such a well placed, moderately priced establishment that offers very comfortable rooms, good food and excellent service throughout. Handy for a walk to the Old Town Area, down to the Creek, or just across the road to the Dubai Museum and adjacent 'hop... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the Arabian Courtyard Hotel in Dubai on our way through to Hong Kong. It was centrally located overlooking the Museum of Dubai and is the first non-Jumeirah Beach Hotel we have stayed at in over 16 visits. As we are not beach/sun-worshippers and my wife heads for the City malls for shopping anyway, this... More

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel numerous times and enjoy the overall experience enough to return. We enjoy hotels with a bit of age and character and searched Dubai to find this one. In addition as others have already stated the location is great if you like to walk around an interesting older part of Dubai. If... More

We booked in here as a stop-over with Qantas/Emirates, transfers were included, it was a 3 nights for 2 offer. We were given the choice of this hotel or one by the beach.
