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

This hotel is set near the gold and spice souks and yet is quiet and away from the crowd and noise. There are 2 buildings housing the rooms. The main building holds the reception and the restaurant that serves only breakfast. The breakfast buffet is good though be early to see the full range. Room service is also available. A... More

If you want to feel the spirit of Arabic countries you would simply love staying in this hotel. Tidy, traditionally furnished and at the same time glamour-free room I was really satisfied with. Very close to metro station but a bit difficult to find among narrow crowded streets of the old town. Lots of sightseeings around you would be pleased... More

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

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.
