We chose this place even though some reviews were bad, and we had a great time. Our first room was dark, damp and had hard beds (!), but we were moved into a light, airy, comfortable one and hsd a great stay. The guest house has lots of traditional features, like the wooden doors and shutters, and is located in... More

This looked exactly what we wanted. Nicely tucked away in Old Town, near some of the souks we wanted to go to. Except... they didn't actually take our booking. Someone didn't get the e-mail or they'd overbooked the place. Different explanation depending on who you believe We were then suddenly 'upgraded' to another of their guest houses (Barjeel). Which is... More

Leaving out the fact the transfer driver was sent to the wrong terminal and the room I got had twin beds, on my own but like a large bed. This is not a Hotel or anything like a Hotel. This is more your Bed & breakfast place. The furniture was none of your plastic junk but good solid wood. Breakfast... More

Loved the spacious room, comfy king size bed, tasty breakfasts (hot and cold foods, fresh fruit and they offered to make you an omelet), friendly staff, 5 minute walk to Al Ras metro...and the quaint, very quiet, spice scented Spice Souq neighbourhood! Perfect for those who prefer something unique and historic rather than high-rise cubicles! The free school and house... More

Sadly I only transitted at this hotel and it's not really a transit hotel, though it served the purpose well enough. The hotel is located in an interesting part for town, an old business trading area not far from the ports, beside an old heritage structure. The rooms are by nature a but quirky and the bathrooms a bit border... More

I stayed here two times "in transit" but taking some days to see what the fuzz of Dubai is all about. This guesthouse was very nice and rustic Arabic style. I got upgraded rooms both times. Everything as expected from such a well run place. Great location in Deira part of Dubai. Professional staff.

The guesthouse is one of the more "down to earth" places you will find in Dubai. Located fairly near the airport, I stayed here for 1 night in transit between flights. Room was quite large (common in this part of the world). I had booked a room with king bed but was given a room with two doubles. Room fulfilled... 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.
