We had 3 nights here and the location was great for us. Close to the metro, the old souq and the museum, which is a must do. The hotel has great restaurants, especially the Mumtaz Mahal Indian restaurant which has live entertainment every night until 2 am. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was large and comfortable.... More

From the moment the very impressive gentleman with the magnificent beard, robes and shoes greeting us from the taxi, to our late departure, we had a lovely stay. Food lovely in the Sherlock Holmes pub, and lovely rooftop bar to enjoy a drink whilst watching the people in the street. 3 minute walk to the museum where the tour buses... More

We just arrived home after our 5th stay and once again it was faultless. We were made welcome the minute we left the taxi. Front of house staff so friendly and professional. Our room as always was spotlessly clean and kept that way throughout our weeks stay. The first evening we entered the Sherlock Holmes bar all the staff came... More

We were pleased with our family room with a spacious King bedroom , large bath and living room with a sleeper sofa and a great view of the picturesque Dubai Museum on the nonsmoking sixth floor. The air conditioning worked well and the wifi was quick and complimentary. The location of the hotel is convenient with the Dubai museum across... More

Stayed for three nights en route to Sri Lanka. Had a room overlooking the Dubai Museum which was also worth a visit. Hotel in general would benefit from a refurbishment but was still very nice. Room was comfortable and quiet. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Did not use the pool or spa as we were too busy sightseeing.... 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.
