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

The location of this place is perfect. Its near the bus and metro station and located in the heart of popular Mina Bazaar in Dubai. The staff of the hotel is very friendly and hospitable. We had a good time in Dubai.

I hate to do this and will start by saying the people were friendly and the place was very clean. Booked through an oblique hotel site so I will learn for the next time. I can't recommend this hotel at all. No wifi, uncomfortable bed, parking was a disaster, nightclub on the second floor playing loud music until after 2am... More

We got our room at a great rate and figured it was well situated near metro station and the creek and all. At check-in we had to hand over our passports so the hotel could run some kind of check. We got it back a few hours later. I objected at first and was met with a rude and sarcastic... More

Me and my wife stayed here for 4/5 days and had horrible experience. Filthy place (families beware), located in older Dubai. Several rooms on the floor had open doors during day time, loud noise and smelt alcohol. If I make another trip to Dubai, I would try to stay in newer part of Dubai. May be a good place for... 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.
