5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

One memorable night, it was the right place to forget about the tiredness and the stress of my appointments in Dubai, after shower in a very clean and tidy bathroom with a high quality showering amenities, went for a deep sleep as am home in a very comfortable king size bed...after refreshment had for the first and wont be the last an exotic combination of Arabic dinner with an outstanding service. i was treated well like anything, woke up next day on time thanks to the wake up call from the reception as i requested and had my Emarati fabulous breakfast which is a new discovering cuisine for me as....i need a book to tell about this great propertY......

Room Tip: Mumtaz room,109 quieter and fashionable with old Arabic heritage

I do not have words how beautiful this hotel is ... unbelievable they treated me like a Queen… I was searching some place of the Emirati culture and found out when I stayed in the other hotel of the same group few days ago… I just came back from Abu Dhabi and tried this place wow nice creek view from the roof top restaurant where they serve the Arabic breakfast… also rooms are spacious and cozy..
Wifi connection sometimes drop but overall it was a good living experience …

We stayed only one night but we had a memorable and wonderful stay. Our room was romantically arabic design and i like it very clean, comfy and very quite. Razak and Rosebell are courteous, efficient and very helpful.

We had dinner in their restaurant (Barjeel Al Arab Restaurant - Arabic food) we seat in the terrace upstair - the view is incridible so romantic over viewing the creek and the food is excellent. After dinner we had a long walk beside the creek.

In the morning at 08:30 - we had an excellent breakfast and that's make me sleeply again and woke up at 12:00 noon. then, we request for a late check-out at 14:00pm and luckily it's available. Thank you so much for making our one night stay a memorable and wonderful stay and will recommend this lovely guest house to our friends and on my next visit will make it sure that we will stay for a week or more.....

Room Tip: Room: Request a room with 4 poster bed.

The location right on the creek side and very unique concept of the guest house. Located in the heritage village area, and very close to the water taxi / abra station. Only spent one dirham and you can cross the creek to the gold and spice souq area. Metro station just right behind the guest house.
The room set up was fantastic, with the great furniture which really create the heritage ambiance. They also offered free wifi in the room. Little courtyard with the tent (they called it Arabic Majlis tent) was make the place more homely.
Breakfast was great with plenty choices from the menu.
The Barjeel Al Arab restaurant offered a great Arabic food; and the most amazing things is to have dinner in the terrace area while you can enjoy the creek view in the night. All the staffs were excellent and very helpful. Since the visit was on my husband birthday, so we decided to invites some friends to celebrate during lunch time. When we make the reservation, they offer us the private area near the terrace to have our lunch. The indoor private area was perfect and we really had a nice celebration.
Overall, it is a nice place to experience the heritage in Dubai.

Location, location, location. Right on Creek front, beautiful place so Arabian. Only 80 m/yards from metro station. This must be the most beautiful part of Dubai. Staff is always helpful with everything. Zele and Christopher thank you for everything. They also have an excellent restaurant, the chef is Arabian. The seafood is great cooked to perfection every time. And the view from the the terrace while you are eating must be the most genuine in Dubai. Breakfast cooked to order takes you a long ways during the day. This is the best hidden gem in Dubai. And most of all a lot for your money.

We didn't stay at the Inn, but it was recommended to us for dinner by the concierge at our hotel. The location was very convenient, less than a 10-minute walk from the Dubai Museum, and even closer to the abras docks (water taxi) on Dubai Creek near the souks. The Inn is right next to the Creek and the rooftop seating provides a great view, especially in the evening when lighted boats are cruising the Creek. There was a nice selection of food, fairly priced, and well-prepared. Staff members were very friendly without being obtrusive. No neon, no flash - just a quiet atmosphere enabling easy conversation with friends.
TIP: There's a welcome breeze off the water once the sun sets. This is doubtless a delight during the summer months, but got a bit chilly in early March as the evening wore on. Bring a sweater during the cooler months and/or ask the staff to light one of the propane heaters to take the chill out of the air.
