A fantastic spot for a boutique hotel. After staying in shangri la hotel for business, it was an experience to dwell in the only old part of Dubai that is still in style and intact.
A must visit place, sleep and wake up in court yard covered by a 100 years old tree, sip your coffee and enjoy an authentic Arabic breakfast.
What a joy
I meet a smiling staff, who welcome me and got interested in my well being. Thanks to their dedicated manager, whose Asian European experience, offered me advises on contemporary art in Dubai.
Thanks Iwan and his team for a wonderful experience. I will be back, keep my favourite room ;)
