he Orient Guest House is a traditional Arabian 2-storey villa that has been restored to its former glory to allow business and leisure travelers to Dubai to experience something new, yet something truly authentic. Arabian-styled rooms and a Majlis lounge provide a rare opportunity to get a taste of what life was once like in this part of the world, while the roof terrace gives guests a panoramic bird’s eye view of the bustling city below. Relax in the private courtyard, take light refreshments or Emirati specialties in our Courtyard Café, enjoy 24-hour butler service, and so much more. This boutique hotel in Bastakiya, Dubai is an ideal base for exploring the city of arranging your heritage experience.

Room amenities as usual nothing special, Guest house only for quite place and old fashion heritage house lovers. Good room, only bathtub available and water heater. Small room only for couples so here in Guest House no twin beds. Recommended for peace old Dubai lovers.
