We stayed 2 nights as a stopover in this Guesthouse. The rooms are very nice with big soft beds and a bathroom filled with nice soaps and shampoos. The staff is friendly and at your service 24/7. Location wise its close to the airport, old town and metro station. The included breakfast is big and good.

Stylish, tastefully-decorated rooms and a quiet, comfortable central courtyard make this a relaxing place to start and end your day in Dubai. The Bastakiya location is perfect, unless hitting the malls is your thing. Beautiful strolls around the re-built "old town", 3 minutes to the Dubai museum, with easy walks to the creek, the souks, lots of local and south... More

Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Orient guest house, the staff was really friendly however could not help us with making reservations or organising a desert safari. The rooms are okay, however very dark and rather small and it could have been cleaner. Fortunately we had a room in the first floor which we enjoyed, as it is more... More

Great! I'm so happy to have stayed there!!! I found the Orient Guest House a cosy and relaxing place for my 9-days holiday. The traditional architecture and room interiors give a wonderful taste of old Dubai. My room was impeccably clean and nicely furnished (like other rooms as long as I could see). The courtyard was a quiet place where... More

This guest house is comfortable, and indeed a picture of past. The bathrooms too are "from the past". OLD and malfunctioning. The charges are 196 USD per day and so such bathrooms are not acceptable at all at this cost.All services are understaffed, especially the house keeping services. Rooms are not clean, and you really do not feel like walking... More

A charming and very quiet hotel in heart of old Dubai. If you want to be away from high rises and crowds (at least tourists) this is the place for you. Walking distance (800 to 1600 meters) from hotel are Dubai museum, river cruises, gold/textile souk, abra (water taxi), metro. There are maybe 10 rooms in hotel. The rooms are... More

I stayed at the Orient this past week for two days and was very glad I did. It had a great deal of character, as compared to another (chain) hotel I was in previously, and I very much appreciated its location - close to the Al Fahidi metro station and the Creek, within the very lovely Bastakiya, and close to...

After reading the rest of comments I am going only to point out what has been missed by other reviewers in our opinion: - This guest house is cozy, and indeed a taste of the past, but for 196 USD /night the bathrooms are too "from the past".

My sister and I stayed at the Orient Guest House for our one night transit stay in Dubai. It was lovely. Though a 15 minute cab ride to the heart of Dubai, such as the Burj Khalifa, the Oriental Guest House provided a glimpse of what Dubai was like years ago in a simpler life. And it was nice. The...

Found this little gem - only 10 rooms - nice decor - helpful staff - good if you want to try something away from the big new impersonal hotels. Great location - in old area - easy to walk to creek for abra ride - heaps of old heritage buildings, some house, some museums, some shops - little cafes -... More
