Good hotel for a good price

Posted Dec 4, 2016
It was a good hotel for us but we would add two small points to let you know, in the early morning sounds a prayer alarm because is near to a mosque I guess. They left us with out toilet paper for two days.

Great location - in front of Dubai Museum

Posted Dec 1, 2016
Due to delay of our plane we arrived late - we wrote email from the airport and received reply from the hotel what was very calming. The check in was very fast, pleasant and Rafael was very helpful. Breakfast were also very good for the price - good variety! Location of the hotel is great - in front of Dubai Museum in the Dubai Creek and also the metro is few streets away. We enjoyed our stay very much and should we go to Dubai again, we would stay here!!

Old hotel not justifying its rating and price

Posted Nov 22, 2016
Pro. Right in the middle of market and city Con Old hotel. Value for money very low. You can get much better hotels in Am Barsha for the same price

Not a 4 star hotel at all

Posted Nov 18, 2016
Got bitten with high rating and 4 stars Middle of the market hotel with very old look, dark and narrow lobbies, atrium. Old style bathrooms They didn't bother to even change towels Staff and breakfast was ok No way close to 140/night price you will end up paying after taxes

a decent hotel to stay..

Posted Nov 16, 2016
Pros: i like the location, good wifi, comfortable room, decent breakfast, friendly staffs and free airport drop off after check out, an advance booking required.
Cons: i need a hair dryer in the room and air condition is a bit loud. the window glasses needs to be clean so we can have a better view of city.
Location: near dubai creek and local shops and 24 hours supermarket.

Second time at this hotel

Posted Nov 14, 2016
Pros: Love the location and the friendly staff.
Cons: The food in the pub is pretty ordinary, but I guess that's not what you go to Dubai for. The Chinese restaurant was really good.
Location: Dubai Museum is across the road as is the Bastikya area where you can wander around art galleries and eat in cool shady courtyards. Close to the Creek
This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel and I really enjoyed my stay both times. The area is interesting with some great places to eat nearby. The staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms clean and comfy. The pool area is a great place to relax during the heat of the day and the hotel is surrounded by local shops that make for interesting wandering in the evening.

Great Staff!

Posted Nov 6, 2016
Location: At the fort and museum across the street there's a Hop-on, hop-off bus stop. Also, a local walking tour to Little India and the Gold Souk.
The staff prided themselves on being friendly and helpful. We dealt with several of the concierges who helped us book tours, make restaurant reservations, print flight boarding passes, suggested what-to-see, etc. The room staff brought fresh fruit when we checked in. And throughout our 4-night stay, whatever we requested was brought quickly and with a smile.

Good, reasonably priced hotel in an expensive city

Posted Oct 21, 2016
Pros: Reasonable price. Good location near the "old city". Across from the National Museum (which was way better then we expected it to be). Convenient to a rare supermarket less than one block away. Familiar location to taxi drivers and tour operators.
Cons: Bed was a bit firm, but not really a big deal. Expedia requires me to add a bit more to this question, but I have nothing more to add, so this last sentence is just to get their restriction.
Location: Please see answer to the "What did you like about this hotel?" question.

ドバイ博物館の前のホテル

Posted Oct 20, 2016
Pros: 時間にもよるがホテルから空港まで無料で送ってもらえる
Cons: クーラーのファンの音が時々カタカタとうるさくて寝にくかった。
Location: アブラ乗り場、バスステーション、バスタキア地区等徒歩圏内
スタッフが親切。 下町の雰囲気のある地域にあるので高層ビル群のダウンタウンとは全然違うのでドバイの二面性を見れて面白い。夜遅くても人通りが多いので治安はいい。
