Hotel is dated but clean, rooms are big and comfortable. Staff were polite and helpful. Walking distance from the creek and opposite the Dubai Museum. Good selection of meals with the different restaurants, but felt like they were constantly trying to 'up sell' when ordering food and drinks. WIFI and air con works well. Supermarket very close.

We were so well looked after. The check in was smooth and the rooms comfy. We had an early flight the next day so we had a light breakfast in the cafe. We got vouchers for discounted meals and free drinks. We also had fruit delivered to our door. Nothing was too much trouble. We are coming back Loved it

This is a lovely hotel with lots of atmosphere and wonderful service. It is right across the street from the Dubai Museum. Perfect place to spend the night in Dubai and wake to the sound of the call to prayer.

If you are looking for fancy lighting, huge atriums, shopping arcades in the hotel, waterfalls and fish tanks everywhere, don't come here. The Arabian Courtyard is an old hotel by Dubai standards and very similar to the hotels in Singapore 30 years ago. It has a lot of well cared for wood, both on the floor and the walls and... 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.
