Rooms were nice & decent. Dont expect any five star facilities its a basic budget hotel. Breakfast buffet is... More

Bad: very old hotel with not so clean rooms,AC badly positioned inside the balcony and very noisy and the bathroom was not cold water. Pub music... More

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

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.
