Where do I start? We stopped here for 7 nights in mid-September on a B&B basis. Reception was efficient, friendly and fast. The hotel issues a "Welcome" letter which covers all the services it provides, (another letter is issued the day before departure explaining how to settle minibar tabs, etc). Our room, on the 6th floor, overlooked the old town... More

We stayed for two nights on route to Hong Kong. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful, nothing to much trouble, they even printed off my flight tickets. We were upgraded to a family suite which was nice. We paid and had one evening meal in the main restaurant, which was excellent and the other night we had a... More

This is one of the best hotels I have ever booked through Trip Advisor. It's in a great spot opposite Dubai museum and old souk area and five minutes from the waterfront and because it's quite a big building, you can easily find it. After a cramped and stressful flight from London with Qatar Airlines (they have really gone downhill)... More

We stopped here on our way from Istanbul. As not often happen our Emirates flight was delayed by more than an hour due to the incoming flight delayed by weather and to add to this when we left our pilot had to duck and dive some very serious weather as well causing further delays. We finally made it in to... More

Stayed for a few nights with friends. We got an excellent rate via last minute. Very good breakie selection. Omelette & waffles lovely. Rooms clean. Spa not bad at all. Reasonable value for money. Location good. We had valet parking. Bad points: extra cost to use steam room & jacuzzi.

If your interests lean towards the historic, exotic, and romantic ideals of travel then you will like this hotel. Located in the heart of "old" Dubai, across the street from the Dubai Fort and within easy walking to most of the historic sites, you feel like you have stepped back in time. "New" Dubai, with all of it's glitz and... More

I stayed in 2013 and have returned in 2014. I am not disappointed. The service is excellent from the airport transfers to the reception desk assistance. One of the smaller and less opulent hotels in Dubai, the Arabian courtyard is nonetheless very comfortable and well appointed. The rooms are large and very tastefully decorated. We grabbed a bite to eat... More

If you are thinking to stay in a super modern new Dubai type hotel, this is not what you are looking for. If you like the idea of stepping outside your nice hotel and seeing an old Arabian fort, souks, and that sort of thing, this is the place. Nice hotel. Good choice. We stayed three nights in August on... More
