What good about this guest house: An experience in traditional house. Location is very convenient to visit old soaks and metro station is 3 min walk. My experience : I had reserved suite, but was shown to regular room. After I complained, they checked out that I indeed have reservation for suite and gave me another, bigger room. But there...

Booking: I reserved this property thru Airbnb.com since I am both a host and guest. I got a prompt feedback from Farham. This is one of the guest houses under the Arabian Courtyard Hotel management, I assumed they have a centralized reservation contact. Reservation: They did an efficient job in answering inquiries and booking confirmation in less than 24 hours.... More

Authentic, of course, is a relative term. Today, the glitter and glam of the malls is as much authentic Dubai, depending on your tastes and preferences. We like the Creek area because it provides sights and sounds from old Dubai, even though there's a clean and modern backdrop emerging. The forecourt restaurant at Ahmedia is a great place to sit...

This place has an authentic Middle Eastern feel to it. The key is even archaic, like keys to a castle. It took me a while to figure it out how to use the keys, but once I found out how to use them, with the help of the staff there was no problem. Woke up to prayers from the mosque... More

The room was old and lighting was dim, or does it want to show the traditional Arabic style? If not, the wall should be repainted. The room was tidy but not clean enough. The toilet seat was not clean and I found stain of pee on it ! Towel for covering the floor next to bath was not provided so... More

This isn't going to be a good review for this property, so I'll start with what was good and I'll move on from there. The beds were King Size, so that's nice. The staff, as it says in other reviews, were very humble and well mannered. That's the good. Here's the bad and the ugly: I booked this trip for... More

The Guesthouse is very well preserved with the surrounding heritage building, away from main traffic road and quiet surrounding. A bit difficult to find but if you walk from the main street and saw the Heritage House Museum, ask the front desk & he will love to bring you there.

I truly enjoyed my time at Ahmedia Guest House. I was there for about six nights in early November and I was so impressed with the beauty of the place and the graciousness of the staff. It is an old building that has been carefully restored. The wood doors, ceilings and furniture are lovely. The place is much prettier, even,... More

4 am I awoke with terrible pain and itching. I turned on the light and saw dozens of bed bugs crawling all over me. The management seem uninterested in the issue. Free wireless and free bed bugs. Beautiful building but so badly managed.

If you don't like the luxury hotels any more, and looking for a Arabian ethnic place to stay in Dubai, AHMEDIA will be the best choice. It only takes 3 mins by foot to get MTR. with a reasonable price, the room rate also include a breakfast, and it tastes not bad! Furthermore, the ahmadiya school nearby is a nice... 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.
