Stayed in this place a few times. It's a classic hotel but it's dry. The breakfast and buffet are really great and the staff are really nice helpful and smart. The hotel view of the creek is wonderful and the location is good for the gold and spice souk. If you need a drink (like I do) then the Raddison...

We loved our stay at this hotel, it suited our needs perfectly. The only thing we missed was having a bar at the pool. The hotel itself is spotless, the towels and sheets are changed as requested. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. The dining room staff are excellent, I am gluten intolerant and the staff and chefs...

This may be the oldest hotel in Dubai but it is one of the best we have stayed in. The staff go out of their way to assist with everything you need,the rooms are modern & spotless & the breakfast was lovely. We had a room on the creek side & the day view was very active with the evening...

The hotel was nice. Could not really fault it. The area it is in is nice and close to Larissa Station which was good but the area generally is run down at the moment, but I did feel safe. A bit of a walk to the closest restaurants, but there is a Carrefors across the road which was a bonus.

The welcome provided by the reception staff and porters was excellent. My room was clean and a good size, plus had a wonderful view out over the creek. I had a couple of very comfortable nights' sleep. The hotel is very well located: it is 5min walk to Baniyas Sq Metro Station as well as the Abra station for a...

This is apparently one of the oldest hotels in Dubai but has been tastefully modernised and decorated. My one night stay was very comfortable and it would be hard to fault the room. The hotel is, as far as I am aware, 'dry', so it might be better to look elsewhere if this is important to you. On the other...
