If you want to be in the real Dubai stay in a hotel in Bur Dubai. Majestic is good quality. The location is perfect, close to the Deira creek, the old town Bastakia and not too far from the Metro Stations ( 20 minutes walking distance )
The hotel is not fancy but the rooms are large and breakfast is extensive and good quality ( coffee is not that good). If you book a DeLuxe room you have the advantage of having breakfast in the exectutive lounge, don't! The breakfast room is much better and there's more space, besides the staff will go and get your egg from the larger breakfast room anyway....
The Greek restaurant Elia is ok but not the quality the website says. Go for a simple dish and order a nice bottle of Jacbs creek and you will be happy sitting outside.
For good food, go to the Indian restaurant Gazebo, just 5 minutes walking distance from the hotel.More
