The only thing good about this place are the excellent front desk guys. Everything else is just poor and a waste of money. I don't even want to list down because this place lacks even the basic facilities.

Stayed only one night at this property before embarking on a cruise. Centrally located, the metro station is a two minute walk (Al Ras) only one station from Al Ghubaiba bus station where we took a ride to Abu Dhabi. The room was big, nice breakfast included and the staff super friendly. We came back after midnight from sightseeing and... More

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.

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.

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.
