“Fabulous hotel with outstanding service.”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

This was a fabulous clean hotel in a lovely older area.the service was oustanding with Abdul Yameen who is the assistant Chief concierge who took me to a pharmacy after I lost my tablets.If I didn't have them there would be very strong repercussions.He was an absolute angel and I was hysterical.Will stay again next year.

Room Tip: Ask for a good room with a street view which I had.

My husband and I had two nights here during our break to Dubai. Arriving at 8am, I was slightly worried about leaving our bags to go explore, when we arrived I was astounded that the receptionist let us check in 5 hours early, this was so great for us to be able to have a shower after a long flight and be ready to explore!

On exploring, we got completely lost trying to find the metro station, eventually we took a taxi and took the metro back and discovered its' location, just a 5 minute walk away from the hotel.

We visited during Ramadan and found it difficult to find anywhere to sit and eat so ended up coming back safe in the knowledge that we wouldn't be turned away! The food in the pizzeria and the pub was really good quality-much better than either of us had expected and priced really well. Breakfast had an excellent variety of foods for all tastes.

The customer service was outstanding, the team were very welcoming, always smiling and happy to help with any requests made.

For the price of the room, I couldn't fault this hotel, some minor things could be done to improve such as updating, fixing the 2nd lift etc but nothing that would put me off staying again! The only thing I would mention is the location, which Is excellent for the airport, dubai museum and creek but is a little far from the main tourist attractions and beaches, however is close to the metro and as I said earlier you cannot fault it for price and outstanding staff members.

We stayed this trip twice at Arabian court yard on the way over and back from Europe. A great reasonable priced hotel with all inclusive breakfast. The rooms are arabian style furnished with a different character. Great breakfast included in the room price great variety. The staff are very well spoken in english and remembered us from last time. We stayed at this same hotel a few years ago and has still the same standard. There is a hotel shuttle bus at certain times leaving and picking up. Next door to the hotel is a bazzer and a supermarket not far. We had a massage and thoroughly enjoyed the relaxation. Great hotel for a short stop over and the Dubai mueseum is worth visiting across the street.

Room Tip: deluxe suite facing the front but you still here the mosque at night

My family has just returned from a 4 day break at this hotel, staff are all really friendly, breakfast was included in the price and was nice large selection to suit all tastes my kids loved the fresh pancakes and waffles made to order. We had a family suite, king bed was huge however the sofa bed in the Lounge was really small, too small for my girls aged 10 and 16 to share. Would be ideal for 1 child. Pool was fine for kids to play in. Dubai museum was across the road and close to the creek to go on a river cruise.

Well worth the money, would visit again. Great free wi fi

Room Tip: Ask for views of the museum if possible.

We have have had several stop-overs at the Arabian courtyard and have always found the staff extremely pleasant and helpful, the rooms well-equipped and clean. There is a good choice of restaurants covering several different types of cuisines. The room service menu is also very good value.
A good choice for a 1 or 2 night stopover any longer though and I would stay at Atlantis on the Palm.

I've stayed in a few hotels in Dubai for a quick one or two night stop over and this is the best I've found to date. The price is great for a quick visit to Dubai and unlike similarly priced hotels this is in a great location near the Dubai Museum and red bus stop. Taxis at the door to take you to the malls etc .

We arrived late around midnight and even though only booked one room the receptionist was able to arrange another room for us on the spot. Rather than the one room with twin beds we both enjoyed large rooms with king beds both icy cold and views across the creek. The cost per night was cheaper than I paid on the website from Australia too.

The staff are exceptionally friendly and always offering a smile or assistance. My AC was making a ticking noise but they sent maintenance up to fix it straight away.

There is also many options for dining and the buffet breakfast selection was wonderful - combination of traditional and modern.

Overall a very good selection and I will be sure to rebook the next time I'm in Dubai.

For the price we paid this is a great hotel. Rooms are large. Wifi excellent. Located in front of a big bus stop, bus station and metro station and abra short walk away.
Staff are very professional and friendly. Older Arabian style hotel with lots of character. Restaurants are far cheaper around the outside of the hotel so make sure you explore....vegatarian restaurant around the corner from the hotel is excellent
