Had a two night stop over in Dubai at this hotel. The hotel is is very old fashioned , like something from a Agatha Christie novel . It is situated in the old part of Dubai, opposite the Dubai museum , a ten minute walk to the underground and five minutes to the creek where you can get the abra across to the gold souk. There is not much to do in this area at night as the local streets are home to all the non Arabs who work in Dubai. The hotel is directly opposite the mosque so you will be woken with the call to prayer in the early morning, this is not a bad thing as it is very soothing and you can always go back to sleep!
Lots of public areas with a coffee shop,and a locked luggage store. The Sherlock Holmes pub is a bit grim, like old UK pubs full of smokers and horrid 1970's cheap wine.
Overall a decent hotel but nowhere near the shiny malls or the beach.
