“nice place to stay in Dubai”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The hotel is centrally located near the historic area of the city, near the Gold Souk, the Dubai Museum, the Textile Souk, the Spice Souk and the Creek. The hotel was clean and the staff very helpful. I would stay there again. It would have been nice to have unlimited free wi-fi access, and a shuttle to or from the airport. From what I saw, not many hotels in Dubai offer that, and for what ever reason, the nicer the hotel, the less free amenities they offer. As it was, the taxi from the airport to the hotel was not expensive.

The hotel is very convenient to the historic centre of Dubai. The buffet breakfast was good and plentiful, we were able to make use of the pleasant pool area, and the free shuttle buses were a bonus. We stayed twice, once in the front with a good view of the Dubai Museum (very picturesque) and once in the back, which was quieter.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms at the back of the hotel but great views at the front - dubai museum and mosque.

This hotel is in an excellent location overlooking the museum and mosque and is just a very short walk to the souqs and abra docks.
Free valet parking is a real bonus, as is the free limited wifi.
Staff are friendly and provided good service. They even ensured we had food available for our early morning checkout.
We had a very large room which was clean and well appointed with classic Arabian style decor.
This hotel is an excellent choice if you want to experience the traditional, more historic side of Dubai.
The restaurant provides a basic buffet service which was OK but uninspiring.

This hotel turned out to be much better than I expected given the area.. the service has been very good, the room is comfortable, clean and with basic amenities. Noise is minimal.. it was the quietest night that I have had in Dubai! (but my room is on the backside of the hotel). Shopping is in all directions outside the hotel.. Burjamin Mall is within a 15 minute walk also.

We stayed 1 week in this EXCELLENT hotel. The staff is very friendly, the reception is great and the location is very good in the old part of the city. The room is spacious and nicely decorated. Really a place to feel at home. The breakfast is extensive, and the waiters are friendly. We had dinner in the Indian restaurant which was a success as well. If you are looking for a very good city hotel, don't wait, you just found the best one. Indeed the swimmingpool is not exciting, but this is not a resort but just one of the most friendly hotels where we ever stayed.

Room Tip: All rooms good I believe

definitely a good place if you want to stay in meena bazaar area in burdubai. i would rate it the best family hotel in meena bazar and very safe, unlike astoria or ambassador which cannot be good for families.museum is just opposite and abra is a walk away and so is the corniche from where you can go on the evening dinner cruise.but it is in a congested area and there are no views from the room . parking is a big issue and so is bringing in a car,breakfast is average and u can bear for 2 days as most of the dishes are repeated,we went just before the uae national day and hence on 2 days we had goood variety of arab dishes.

Room Tip: try for rooms on 7th floor overlooking museum
