This hotel is nice if you wanted to stay in an old town area. It's just 5 minutes walk to the river and the textile market. The Dubai museum is just the opposite site of the street, less than 1 minute walk. The Dubai museum is partially built by the old Dubai walls. The staff is friendly. The room is clean. It's an old Arabian/Chinese/East Asian style room. To Dubai Mall, the best way is to by taxi, it will cost about 40 dirhams. To the famous ship hotel, it will cost about 50 dirhams. The hotel offers shuttles that go several times a day between the airport and the hotel. So you don't need to take the expensive hotel at the airport. The airport in the hotel starts from 25 dirhams, which is way too high. The normal starting rate in the city is 3 dirhams only. Dubai mall is really worth a visit. It includes most of the chain restaurants in Canada or USA. Even in Ramadan, you can still have a lot to see in the mall. Staff is friendly. Spa is worth a trial.

Room Tip: Please request a non-smoking room.

This hotel is a great little gem located in the old part of the city directly opposite the very interesting Dubai Museum. The staff were very friendly, courteous and accommodating and their politeness was overwhelming. The room was more than adequate and very clean and had great air conditioning in July! We paid for and went on the " Big Bus" hop on hop off tour around Dubai which was intriguing and very interesting a little expensive but nonetheless very worthwhile and the pick up point was across the road from the hotel. The breakfast was superb with an enormous range of everyhthing with chefs at your ready to cook your egg specialty. A quaint little themed pub "Sherlock Holmes" is set in the hotel and gives you sport sport sport on the tv. There are also 3 other eateries within the hotel complex so there is no real need to dine out plus a coffee shop. We stayed there for 2 nights as a stopover to London and we are glad we did here at this hotel because it is so affordable and offers everything really need. The burning questions are (1) Would I recommend this hotel - Yes; (2) Would I stay there again - Yes. Great hotel!

We stayed here at the end of our honeymoon. Not one of the newest hotels, and in places a little tired, but good value for the price and friendly and helpful staff. Would stay here again. We spent most of our time out and about and the hotel was excellent for our needs. Within walking distance of museum and shops, and boat to souks.

We stayed only two nights to break the trip back to Australia and it worked a treat.NO JET LAG!The hotel is as described ,with lots of old world charm.The staff are wonderfull with nothing being too much trouble.Our stay was during Ramadan and that means no eating or drinking during the day in public.After walking all day in 40c with no water the hotel is like an oasis.
The restaurants are great and the cold mezza is enough for two,but avoid Sherlock Holmes if you are a non smoker.

This hotel is amazing, the staff is friendly, the rooms are clean, the restaurants are top quality and the location is okey also. We spent two weeks here, and absolutely nothing to complain about. The Zaitoona Spa inside the hotel has the best beauty treatments. I want to come back asap!
