We stayed in this hotel for a week during an exhibition. Overall my experience was good. #Though we booked a double room with two separate beds almost 3 months in advance, we were given a very small room with a double bed for the first night. After a lot of resistance and follow ups we were given a little bigger... More

Staff and management totally oblivious of the various failings. We were in rooms 705 & 706. The restaurant holds a musical evening every evening so there is a thumping noise in the room till 3am. When reception call you or put through a call, only the phone in the bathroom rings, the one in the bedroom does not ring. Informed... More

I have stayed there on a number of occasions and stayed in Room 803. Very nice and courtesy at the reception. Free drop to the airport. There is a bar which is good . Food is great, they make it fresh so takes time. Area is quite good and connected ,Carrefour supermarket is only 7 minutes walking

Stayed 3 nights from the 7th of December. Its one of the oldest hotels in old Dubai. The location is fantastic. A few hundred yards from the al ghubaiba metro and central bus stations. Also a stones throw from the main Asian Meena bazaar. All cheap but good Pakistani/Indian restaurants are a walking distance. Beware though the area is a... More

Stayed at the Ambassador hotel on 5th to 6th Dec 2015. Process of booking room was very easy, and decided price was good enough for me. Hotel staff themselves shifted me to a room, coz the initial allotted room had a faulty ac. I had not even realized it. Hotel staff are very decent and courteous. Rooms are quiet clean,... More

This is one of the old hotels in Bur Dubai, formed in 1968.. The rooms are big... but the infrastructure is quite old with hardly any improvements in the baths... one of the biggest minuses is the breakfast... it is pretty average and was not even great to taste... need to improve on this to become or come to terms...

Very co-operative and good staff, helps you in finding what you need. They even accompanied me to the store as I was unable to understand the location. Centrally located for good asian food lovers. couple of good Vegetarian indian restaurants within a distance of one kms. walking maximum 5 mins. Rooms are good and spacious, overlooking the market / road.

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.
