Had two days at this hotel at the end of a cruise, didn't look much from the outside, or from the photos, but what a find. Free upgrade to the executive rooms, amazing view over the town, central to the old town too. Fantastic breakfast-with no additional charge, definitely go back.

How can you beat a place that's across the street from the Dubai Museum in the heart of Creekside, with a bus stop outside the door and a Metro stop around the corner? The hotel itself is not particularly fancy or luxurious - in fact it may be a little scuffed in places - but it's clean and comfortable, with...

Been to mezzanine floor bar. well stocked & luxuriously furnished. Sherlock Home bar has a nice view of Dubai Museum. Bar staff was well trained & offered his best attention. R8 from entry to reception and lobby area is tastefully furbished. John was sparkling. A perfect place for Family too. Elevators are most modern.

Staying in The Creek

Neighbourhood Profile
The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original air conditioning. Home to the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding and the Dubai Museum, the old buildings also house a range of cafes, shops and art galleries. Often called “the real Dubai,” this is a wonderful place to lose yourself before catching an abra across the creek to the spice souk, where your senses will be overwhelmed with tastes, smells, and sounds.
