“Dubai trip”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Just had a week at this hotel June 2014 with a friend .. It's located in the old part but the hotel was spot on .. The staff were all very friendly and polite nothing was a problem . We used the Sherlock Holmes Pub and the Bastakia restaurant which was really good value .

had a great stay in this hotel during a 3 day stop over at Dubai. at checkin, I was upgraded to a family room facing the museum - the rooms were quite spacious and very comfy and neat and also had a microwave which was quite handy during the visit. staff were very friendly and helpful. we had dinner at the Chinese place in the hotel - the food was decent. the hotel is right opposite to the museum so we could easily walk to it.

other tips for tourists
- the metro service is great and affordable, but if you are traveling as a family etc, it is cost efficient for you to take a taxi instead to the malls etc. you can save a few bucks but I found this was not worth it. for instance, you can take the metro to the Dubai mall but you have to walk a whole deal from the metro station to the mall.
- there is a water taxi takes you around the shoreline with great views of the city (also of Burj Al Arab). if you are not planning on visiting the Burj, this may be a good opportunity to get a look at it. the taxi drops you at the Marine center.
- book for the burj khalifa observation floor in advance online or be prepared to pay a hefty premium to get the tickets at the counter.
- the las vegas style dancing fountations in the Dubai mall were quite impressive.

Room Tip: room facing the museum

I stayed two nights at Arabian Courtyard in March 2014 - staff were extremely friendly, professional, courteous and helpful. The room was very comfortable with a view of the museum. The location was excellent for the 'hop on/off' bus tour and for walking to explore.

Room Tip: I liked having a view of the museum.

Hotel was very good despite a problem with the water supply for two hours.
Food in the Sherlock Holmes was good pub food and the staff very helpful throughout the hotel.
Very handy for the museum, but slightly away from the malls. 10 minutes walk to the metro..

Due to our flight times we arrived at the hotel late morning. The staff were extremely helpful and arranged for our room as quickly as possible. The room was a good size and very comfortable.
The location may not suit everyone as it is away from the hustle and bustle.
We dined at a couple of the internal restaurants and were not disappointed.

We arrived after 1am and put in a room without a view. As we actually paid a bit extra for the view,it was rectified the next morning and we were put in the executive suite.Rooms are big and clean.The staff are very friendly and courteous.

I stayed here last weekend for a shirt visit , after only having stayed previously I. The jumeriah chain outside of the city I was quite dubious, however, I was very surprised, the hotel is small, but friendly and the rooms are light, airy and very clean, the concierge and the person that looks after the rooms were incredibly helpful and couldn't do enough . I had a spa treatment whilst there and the experience was very pleasant. I had breakfast included in the package, and this is buffet style, with lots to choose from hot and cold buffet, very good quality.
After reading trip advisor, I booked a hotel transfer through the hotel, and they were waiting for me when I came through even though the flight was quite delayed, only 100 dh so well worth it, the hotel charges 60 dh transfer back to the airport, and also runs a free shuttle, (although at strange times) I got a taxi back to the airport at a cost of 40, recommend this hotel if you don't want a big glass affair,

Room Tip: I had a room on the 4th floor , the hotel is on a busy road and I was concerned that it would be noi...
