Pleasant Hotel

Very pleasant stay in this hotel. In excellent location and close to old Dubai. No building going on near hotel. Restaurants within hotel saves going outside in the hot summer season.

Very Good Value for money

We stayed for a week recently and had a great time. All staff were accommodating and really friendly. Easy access to local shops and Bur Dubai. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to explore the old part of Dubai, eat great tasting local food, and be ready to haggle for prices. DO NOT EXPECT 5 STAR!! It isn't, but what it is, is a great hospitality and homely environment. Me and my family are definately returning to this hotel again!!

Great location and breakfast

I would really recommend this hotel for its location and atmosphere. It has a great middle eastern feel to it and the door staff are appropriately dressed. It is close to the Dubai Creek and the Indian Shops and very affordable Restaurants (great food thought don't expect table cloths). I did not try the hotel restaurants but from the outside they look top quality at normal hotel rates. The hotel offers various trips such as Dune Bashing etc. Close by there are Creek Water Taxies to take you across. There are floating boat restaurants which allows you to dine whilst you watch the Dubai lights at nights. This is the 4th time I've been here and will come back again. This time round one of the two public lifts was down for maintenance and the other broke down whilst we were in it. No panic though, the walls were glass and we were seen quickly and let out. Im sure it will not be an issue in future. I will recommend this hotel to anyone.

The Dubai Creek Floating restaurants provide a great buffet meal and an evening on a boat watching Dubai by night for between 70 to 150 AED. There was one offering entertainment. This is great value for money and they depart at 8:30 pm. You should get there an hour beforehand to take in the atmosphere and select which boat to take. Some allow you to look at the buffet before you choose.

Above average for a family

A little bit noisy, but tolerable. Could have been clearer about airport pick-up. Service is generally good, but delay on certain times. Currency exchange rate is slightly higher when compared to other places.

friendly, adequate facility

Hotel has nice and clean rooms. Common areas a bit dark. But considering its location, it is a good value for money, if the main thing you want is just a good room and you will not spend time otherwise in the hotel.

Cheapest 4-star in Dubai for a reason

We stayed three days during Art Dubai, and the location couldn't have been better. The room was also comfortable (though the mattress was very firm). However, the staff was inattentive, our room was only half cleaned on our first day and not cleaned at all on the second. The bathroom was also constantly damp and there was mold on the door. Overall the price and the location still made our stay worthwhile, but you have to overlook some things.

A little TLC would work wonders

We found the room to be musty and the beds really hard. The bathroom was disappointing and in need of some cleaning. The Club lounge was disappointing, alcoholic beverages were strictly controlled to the point of being absurd, the selection of canapes was adequate. The buffet breakfast was very well presented with a good selection from which to choose.
