Excellent hotel stay, large rooms, some overlooking the Dubai museum. Air conditioning works well and the Asian restaurant and the Pub are good value. The staff are friendly and speak good English. We have now stayed there 3 times as it is good value, quiet and 50 meters from the hop on hop off bus and the museum. It is...

We couldn't have picked a better hotel. It was 5 minutes from the old souk, the spice souk and the gold souk. The staff in the restaurant were incredibly friendly. We have never seen such an extensive buffet breakfast and everything was delicious. Wifi was reliable. The room was extremely comfortable. This is a hotel I would highly recommend!

Wonderful experience from the tour desk - Hafiz was fantastic. He knew exactly what he was doing and all the advice he gave was well worth the time spent with him. I would recommend any patrons of the hotel to take some time to chat to him - he is very knowledgeable about his country!

It is certainly a very good hotel to stay in. Located right in the middle of the market, it is very approachable. Our room had a fantastic view of the Dubai Museum. Staff is very hospitable and cooperative. Certainly a place to stay whenever we visit Dubai

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.
