Dolphin Hotel Apartments is the most widely suggested hotel by most tours and travel agencies. That's for a few very good reasons! The location of the Hotel is very good, at the centre of Bur Dubai, about 8 minutes walking distance from Al-Fahidi metro station. The price is quite decent, though there are a few Hotels better than this one... More

I had been there several time in last 3 years. It is boon for typical Indian traveler like me who wants pure veg restaurants, centrally location and at reasonable rate. Morning breakfast is complementary which is also very good.

Yes, you have all the visitors Indian in this hotel and you don't miss your neighboring environment of India. Even the breakfast buffet reflects the tasteless Indian food that most of the Indian restaurants serve. The staff at the reception are always busy with some paper work even though the visitors are lined up with queries in front of them.... More

The plus point of this hotel is, that you have all near by access point be it a metro or a bus travel or abra travel, and window shopping as well and of course, to spend a good night life of dubai after the tiring working day. You can enjoy every thing staying in this hotel.

my first time at this hotel was great....you hardly see the staff because everything is on place and working so there is no need to be contacting the concierge or guest services. for the new visitor, don't expect too much space on elevators or fancy anything...it's an old building well maintained, good for the buck and most downtown attractions are...

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.
