Really nice courtyard house with art scattered around. Quality of the art was varied but cafe was really nice and the halloumi and cucumber sandwich on flatbread I will def be making at home!

I have lived in Dubai for 4 years and always recommend wandering around the Bastakiya area to see the old architecture, wind towers and the XVA gallery. They always have interesting exhibits.

I believe you can also stay there (kind of a traditional Middle Eastern little boutique hotel) which would be a very nice way to experience the area and Dubai. Most of Dubai is "new Dubai" with the tallest building in the world, 7 star hotel, etc.

Whether just strolling around or staying, the XVA is one of the more traditional pieces of culture you can enjoy in Dubai.

Highly recommended again and again.
