3 minutes walk to the metro station, 5 minutes walk to gold souk, 30 minutes walk to the creek dock, with the mosque nearby, we had the best Dubai stay here for 8 days!

This place is centrally located in the Deira Al Ras foodstuff market place. It is surrounded with Food grains wholesalers on one side, with shops selling fishing and sea faring items as well as confectioneries, household items, toys, etc. Good place to go and sip a cup of local coffee and know a bit about the heritage and importance of...

When visiting the Al-Ras district, one historical landmark to visit is the Heritage House (and the nearby Al Akmadiya School). An artist's venue, it also houses beautiful exhibits reflecting early life in Dubai. A must visit when in the area.

Quite a small exhibit/museum, gives insight into the traditional Dubai lifestyle. Only took 20 minutes to go see it all, wouldn't recommend going out of your way to visit it, but if you are near the Spice or Gold Souks it's only round the corner so worth calling in since it is free.

No one know this place exists. It's just super: the access road etc. Location: can't get better! Well connected to the transport system. Rooms are just fabulous. All authentic Middle Eastern feel. Very nice. Staff are helpful only if you ask them but that's okay right? It's worth the money!

Thank dofr

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.
