It was just the perfect location with the much needed peace and quite that I was looking for. It was convenient as the Al Fahidi metro is at walking distance.
The staff was friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to make my stay comfortable. I was upgraded from the single room to the double room on my arrival & the room was brilliant and cozy. The best part of the room is that there is NO TV! And the food was perfect :)
The Dubai museum is right next to the hotel and there are several old markets in the area. Several things to do in this neighbourhood.
Unique hotel, lovely service and peaceful atmosphere!
I'm glad I chose XVA Art Hotel for my stay.

XVA occupies a renovated traditional majilis-style building, boasting original architectural motifs and wind towers and three open courtyards, in which one can relax and soak up the exceptional atmosphere of this heritage space. XVA’s Art Hotel includes twelve boutique rooms, designed by well-established designers and artists from the region. These include Zayan Ghandour, Numa, Nada Debs & Karim Rashid (Gaia&Gino).The XVA Art Hotel is covered in many national and international travel publications. Featured in Condé Nast Traveller as one of the 10 hotels to stay in Dubai and in 2006 as the number 1 “Not To Miss” spot in Dubai, Wallpaper magazine mentioned us as a boutique hotel to stay.
