Small friendly hotel with a good location, right next to the gold market and spice market, large comfortable rooms, staff very welcoming and helpful in booking activities (Burj Khalifa, desert safari), very quiet, restful.

We stayed at the Arabian Courtyard for three nights and have had a very pleasant stay. The hotel is in a good location and very easy to get to. We enjoyed our very large room which was cleaned every morning to a very good standard. Only negative comment about the room is the actual bathroom was very small. Breakfast was great different options everyday, staff are very friendly and attentive. We only used the pool once it is quiet small in size however the pool was never crowded. Great value for money, great location and very attentive staff, we were overall happy with our stay.

Stayed 3 nights. Not much to say about this hotel. Was very average. Clean but no outstanding qualities. Good location. Drinks were expensive but being Dubai most things are. We booked all our trips outside of the hotel. Dhow boat & meal, hop on hop off bus tour.

The hotel is located right opposite the Dubai museum and the location is good.
The staff was very courteous, especially the door man. He was one of the most jolliest person i have come across and always welcomed you with a genuine smile and warmth
The rooms and the hotel was fantastic, no complains. They can work on their breakfast a little bit but no complains apart from that.
Stayed way back in 2012

This hotel goes out of their way to look after their guests. Stay for 3 nights on our way home to Australia and were well looked after. Slept soundly as the hotel is very quiet and the thick curtains keep all the light out. Breakfast is awesome with chefs cooking eggs to your liking and the many other options available. There is various restaurants within the hotel to choose from. The hotel is very close to some quality museums in which you gain a great insight into the history of Dubai. A 30min train ride to the hustle and bustle of modern day Dubai. However if you like markets the hotel is close to the Gold & Spice souqs. If I have stay in Dubai again....I will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: We paid extra for a room with a view over the museum.

We loved our recent stay at the Arabian Courtyard Hotel. We were seeking a place to stay that wasn't a generic, characterless chain, but rather, full of the character/romance of it's location: the Arabian Peninsula! This hotel did not disappoint - the rooms are fantastic with lots of local touches, but my favourite feature is the way that light filters through the Arabian cut wood window panelling into the room.
The location of the hotel is great - especially if you are interested in exploring the historical sections of the city. The Dubai Museum is across the road, the Bastakia quarter and the Bur Dubai Souq are 2 minutes walk away. The nearest metro station is only about a ten minute walk too, so getting to the rest of the city is very easy and quick.
Staff are helpful and efficient. There are services in place to help you organise your stay. Breakfast is AMAZING - one of the best hotel spreads I've experienced, plus the possibility of having some things (waffles, omelettes etc.) cooked up for you while you wait.

Overall, this place is a great place to spend your Dubai days. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Take a room with a view over the Dubai Museum and fort.
