The Arabian Courtyard Hotel and Spa is not a place to stay - Located outside the new and gleaming new Town of Dubai and in the 'Indian Quarter' of the suburbs we found the hotel unwelcoming, dirty, and not even ready for our arrival for which I believe we paid an extra £1,000 STERLING for our 2 night Bed only...

We stayed twice at the hotel during the past weeks and definitely will be here again at a next stay. Hotel is well located nearby the old city center of Dubai. Getting to the center of old Deira takes just a few minutes by using the ferry across the Creek. Staff is very pleasant and efficient. As I requested an... More

Had an amazing week in Dubai and part of the credit goes to the hotel. I always prefer to stay on a bed only basis as I don't know what time I'll be up after a late night, so don't really want to be paying extra for breakfast when I know I might not make it. I arrived at the... More

We was very happy with the service, friendly staff, good breakfast, perfect location in " Old Dubai '', the room was comfortable and clean, probably the best hotel in Bur Dubai. I will recommend everyone, who would like to discover the real face of the Dubai life.

We arrived in the morning and reception staff was not very supportive. Didn't explain facilities inside the hotel or anything about the city, although we asked. We hoped that this was only the night shift but it turned out that reception staff was always not very supportive. You need to know that the location is in old Dubai but you... More

Stayed here for 3 nights on our way home from Morocco. Got a great deal through emirates which was very appreciated as we didn't realise how expensive Dubai was going to be. Didn't expect much going by the online photos but was definitely pleasantly surprised! 24hr check in is awesome! Our room got upgraded for free and thankfully was ready... More

Stayed at the Arabian Courtyard for 3 nights after a cruise. It was my first time in Dubai (which is amazing) and the Arabian Courtyard proved to be the perfect location for me. It's a 10 minute walk to the metro (outstanding), maybe a 10 minute walk to the creek (worth it), a 5 minute walk to a textile souk... 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.
