I loved my stay at the XVA. It was a very comfortable place to stay as a solo female traveler. I particularly enjoyed the location in a pedestrian-friendly area and am so glad I chose this over staying in modern Dubai. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The cafe is quite good, also. Would definitely stay here again if I visit Dubai.

If you are looking for a quiet little accommodation, the XVA is the right place for you. Here you will find the other Dubai. The staff is very polite and friendly. The café and the small gallery are perfect. I felt completely comfortable with the children.

The hotel is excellently located in a pedestrianized zone of old Bur Dubai that was completely rehabilitated.
The hotel doubles as an art gallery with some very impressive works being exhibited.
Our room was located in one of the two patios of the old house. It had a small entry hall with a sofa, a room, and a bathroom, and was very quiet and clean.
The wi-fi was available for free and worked very well.
All employees were very friendly and helpful.
The breakfast is served in one of the patios but it is not a buffet breakfast.
The room was comfortable but rather spartan for the price charged in comparison with other hotels in Dubai. The air-conditioned in the entry hall was rather noisy, and the one in the room was directed to the bed, which turns to be rather uncomfortable.
Furthermore, there were two complimentary bottles of water when we arrived. However, despite paying the same, the hotel did not provide more bottles of water in the following days, something that was stated in an A4 sheet of paper they gave us on arrival. During the same trip, we stayed in another two hotels, one in Downtown Dubai and the other in central Abu Dhabi, where complimentary water was provided every day, independently of the number of days we stayed and where we paid a similar or inferior price for bigger and more comfortable rooms when compared to this one.
The breakfast was good but rather dull if you stay more than one night. The core is always the same, as it is the list of items you may ask for.
In sum, a nice hotel to stay for one night but with a bad relation price-quality.

Stayed here for one night with family, meeting local friends for dinner.
I had a lovely stay, everything was very clean and comfortable and had a lovely Arabic feel, beautiful bathrobes provided. I slept extremely well here, we had a lovely dinner in the courtyard, and a good breakfast the next morning. Loved the rooftop sitting areas at night. All in all, a very memorable stay.
