Recently stayed at the Ambassador which is close to the Creek and restored part of Old Dubai; in fact Dubai was built around it. Not only is it reasonably priced but you get a little bit of Bombay thrown in as the hotel seems to be owned and managed and staffed with people from that city so you can expect... More

As I live in Dubai I have not used the hotel, but eat and drink there frequently. Somewhere for a bit of the English Pub feel, that is really is an English Pub an not an interior designers interpretation. Alright the pub has not changed in 25 ears, but that is why people go. Pub food and refreshments at reasonable... More

This is one of the oldest hotels in Dubai, started in 1968. The building is a bit old. From top floors we could see the creek. Service is average and nothing exceptional. This may be the best budget accommodation available in Dubai. Creek metro station is hardly 300m from the hotel.

Located in Bur Dubai, smack inside the Mina Bazaar- it is a quaint, old fashioned hotel with 4 bars / restaurants inside the hotel itself. The rooms, though small, have all the required facilities inside. It has free, fast wifi in the rooms. The room service is also quick, prompt with a smile. I stayed for 5 days and missed... More

Located near the Mina Bazaar , Burdubai. Good and clean ambiance and crowd. Started the priming up with Corona & Heineken and then moved on to JD and Double Black. Not too expensive. Snacks are average. Cheese Nachos and Tuna Salad. Topped it all with two shots of Tequila. Overall a good experience. Would recommend to anyone who wants to... 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.
