Last August we stayed here for 1 night. We arrived early in the morning and had access to our room within 1 hour. The room was so nice, had a great ambiance en a very comfy bed. The staff were very kind. Nice neighbourhood, very quiet compared to the rest of this overwhelming city. Next morning we had an early... More

This quaint guest house is actually located within the historical area of the Al Fahidi district, right opposite the Al Musallah post office. It is within walking distance (if you wish) from the Al Fahidi Metro but a cheap and quick taxi ride. The rooms contain old traditional furniture, the breakfast (included in the tariff) is delicious and it has... More

I loved this place. Beautiful courtyard, helpful staff. Would stay there again for sure. The location is excellent and the rooms are in top condition. Looking for a unique experience and a 'boutique' style hotel for a reasonable price, stay here.

Great when looking for something other than a hotel in Dubai. The Guest House is located in a cool part of Old Dubai and close to the water and is quiet. The staff were friendly, although they wouldn't let us check in early without paying an extra 150 AED (40 USD) even though there appeared to be only one or... More

My wife and I stayed here recently for 3 nights. On arrival we opted for an early check in and were able to choose a room due to a number available. Opting for one on the upper floor we more or less had the upper terrace to ourselves as all other guests seemed to be in ground floor rooms. The... More

We had four nights in the Orient Guest House in early May. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room, although a little dark was very traditional and a welcome change to the normal high rise hotels in Dubai. The bathroo was stocked with shampoo, conditioner, soap and body lotion all in very pretty bottled. The bathroom was adequate... More

We stayed for 2 nights in February and enjoyed our visit. The staff were helpful and the breakfast was good. Our room was large and comfortable and opened onto the courtyard where breakfast was served. The bathroom provided very nice toiletries although the bathroom fittings were rather old and on the first night the toilet wouldn't flush properly. I would... More

Located conveniently in the rebuilt part of old Dubai known as the Bastakiya, the Orient Guest House allows you to experience the arab villa experience. Yet it also offers many of the services of a larger hotel (pool, spa, shuttles, concierge, tours, etc) thanks to its affiliation with the Arabian Courtyard Hotel, which is just a short stroll down the...

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
