I spent some time trying to select between "Poor" or "Average" at the overall rating of the property... I ended up with Average. Room decoration is pretty nice with wooden furniture and a large flat TV. There are not many plugs in the room so if you wish to charge your tablet, camera and phone then you will have to... More

This hotel was a very comfortable and pleasant stay for me. The beds are comfortable, the air conditioning is perfect and the location is great. The staff were very helpful and went the extra step to ensure my stay was as I wanted. Recommended for a budget traveller looking for something above average

We loved this hotel, from the moment we arrived early to be told we could get our room straight away to the very end when we took the complimentary shuttle to the airport. The location gives you a chance to explore the old part of Dubai and the traditional decor is interesting and luxurious. Would recommend this to anyone travelling... More

Stayed in Executive Room overlooking Dubai Museum, room beautifully furnished with very comfortable bed. Staff were wonderful both at check in and in the British style pub. Excellent location with Dubai Creek a short stroll away. My one concern would be that there is a limit on the number of drinks (3) per person at the pre-dinner cocktail session in... More

This hotel is situated next to the Dubai Museum, also handy to the various "souks" which are a must see. Staff are super friendly and very helpful, For those who like the occasional tipple there is a bar as well as several on site restaurants. You have a 15 minute walk to the nearest Metro station, taxis are available at... More

Spent four nights here during Ramadan. It's right across the street from the Dubai Museum and a short walk to the bus station. The rooms are charming, furnished in an old Arabian style with wooden lattice and furnishings. The staff was friendly, but I feel like we didn't get to experience the hotel since all the restaurants except one were... 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.
