We stop off in Dubai regularly on the way to or from Europe or Africa and the Arabian Courtyard is a favorite. It is an older style hotel with traditional decor and a comfortable air. It is conveniently located close to Dubai Creek and opposite the Dubai museum - and it is always a pleasure to walk along the creek... More

Good location for the old town and a lot cheaper than the hotels down near the beach. We arrived early to the hotel about 9am and it wasn't long before we were given our room and an upgrade at that which was great. Breakfast buffet was ok for a 4 star hotel. Just across from the Dubai museum and the... More

Let me start by saying that I have absolutely no affection from Dubai. It's just another over-sized city that is sterile and without much soul. That being said, the Arabian Courtyard went a long way to making me change my views, if not of Dubai as a whole then as the old part of town as a neighborhood. The Arabian... More

On our way to Europe for Christmas we had a 24 hour stop over in Dubai. We booked this accommodation via the Emirates 24 Hour Stop over package. Rate was good and it included breakfast and transfers to & from the Airport. Our first impression when we booked in was we were in a traditional hotel in Old Town and... More

The staff at the courtyard hotel were the best part of the experience. They were very attentive. The hotel was close to many different sights. It was a great deal! The food in the buffet was magnificent and varied. I would return in a heartbeat.

I stayed at this hotel in late October 2014. Upon arrival back in Australia I noticed 2 x 1,000 UAE dirhams withdrawn totalling 2,000 UAE dirhams without my authorisation. I have been emailing and calling without any explanation as in to why this money was withdrawn from my credit card. The first person I spoke to Praveen said he would... More

HabibKhan, General Manager at Arabian Courtyard Hotel & Spa, responded to this review

Dear Olivia, First and foremost, I would like to offer an apology on behalf of my colleagues who failed to give a timely and satisfactory response to your query. Marvelous was right, when she informed you that our record only shows the amount of AED 555.00 charged to Jamal Chahbi card. And there is no other withdrawal by our thru... More

The hotel is in a great location, opposite the museum and a short walk to the textile souk and historical village. It's not flashy and bright but the staff were friendly, the food in all restaurants of good quality and the rooms were traditionally decorated and clean. The pool area is small but overall, they've done a good job with... 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.
