Flora Creek is situated less than 15 min. from the airport. We took a cab - 40 AED incl. tip - but used the hotels complimentary transport when leaving. Great service. Hotel staff - especially the "door" men were very helpful and friendly. However - cleaning can be as late as after 6 p.m. Very spacious apartment - we had a 2 bedroom - although the doors to bedroom and balcony are a little narrow. My father is a above knee amputee, and uses a wheelchair partially at day, but always at night. The door to the bathroom (either of the three) was only just wide enough. The balcony door was too narrow for a portable wheelchair. The sliding doors to the balcony from the bedroom were unfortunately sealed off. Otherwise no problem with space. Our 2 bedroom had partial creek view from kitchen balcony. Kitchen has everything - incl. a toaster.
Only 5 min. to Deira City Centre - both the metro station as well as the shopping centre which has a large Carrefour.
Across the creek - using the floating bridge - you can take the public waterbus to Bur Dubai next to the textile souk - return ticket 4 AED when using a nolcard which is also great for bus and metro.More
