This hotel has no bars and thus a more peaceful atmosphere with no late night disturbances, as can occur in other hotels with bars and night clubs. Furthermore it is centrally located on the north side of the creek, and only a few minutes walk to some local restaurants and to the nearest underground station. The buffet breakfast is excellent. For all the above reasons this is the best hotel in Dubai for me.

Room Tip: Stay one of the higher floors in the slightly higher priced rooms on the creek side for excellent vi...

Stayed here twice on the way to and back from Europe. Very close to the airport and large shopping center. Very helpful staff, great rooms and would easily recommend. Managed to check in hours early each time which was greatly appreciated after a long flight.

Room Tip: very quiet rooms

The staff here were amazing. They cleaned a room for me at 9am, helped me book trips, brought me more tissues when I was sick and organise an airport transfer. The hotel was reasonably old but well kept and the room was in very good condition. The breakfast included was fantastic, couldn't have been better and the minibar in the room was good value for money. The air conditioning was a little noisy but a necessary evil and plenty of channels to choose on the TV. Only about 20 dehrum for a taxi from the airport and desert safaris will pick up from the lobby. There isn't many shops around the hotel but there is a small grocery store and a cheap clothing store within 5 minutes walk.

Hotel well sited on bank of dubai creek. Staff were all very pleasant and helpful. The hotel would benefit from refurbishment but is still much better than many 3* establishments in the UK. It was good to be able to walk out the hotel door and wander along the creek side. Breakfast was good but the restaurant was very old fashioned in appearance. Check out was efficient and the cruise terminal was only about 5 K. from the hotel. Not the place for a long stay but ideal for one or two nights in the centre of dubai with the old souks on your doorstep.
