This is indeed a good find. We got a good deal here because we were staying for 3 nights, and decided to stay here because the reviews were stellar, saying the wifi would work, the pool was open all day, and the breakfast was delicious. Not only were those things true, the staff was extremely kind every time you turned... More

We had a two nights three days stay at Arabian Courtyard Hotel. The rooms were excellent, clean, big and spacious. Their buffet breakfast is commendable.

I stayed in the Arabian Courtyard Hotel in Bur Dubai close to the Creek. Rooms are clean and tidy, tea making facilities, mini bar, loads of storage, opulent bed, AC worked. Small outside pool and gym facilities. What I most like about this Hotel is you could step outside and go walkabout.

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.
