Large rooms excellent facilities in room and very clean. Restaurants and food were great.we would recommend eating here. Reception team really excellent and helpful. Based in the old town means you can get out and see the old part of town. Good mid range value.

Location is good, close to water taxis or metro, which you can take to get to the Marina area. Room was quite large and clean. Friendly staff. Only negative was when we arrived we were told our reservation had been cancelled by our travel company! After about 20 minutes the hotel admitted it was their error thankfully!

Staying in The Creek

Neighbourhood Profile
The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original air conditioning. Home to the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding and the Dubai Museum, the old buildings also house a range of cafes, shops and art galleries. Often called “the real Dubai,” this is a wonderful place to lose yourself before catching an abra across the creek to the spice souk, where your senses will be overwhelmed with tastes, smells, and sounds.
