We had a most enjoyable stay at the Arabian Courtyard. We were completely blown away by the cleanliness, location and spaciousness of the rooms. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

We really enjoyed our 3 nights at this hotel.. The staff were all amazing- very friendly and eager to please. We ate in the restaurant one night and the waiter (Prince) minded our baby while we ate, since we were the only diners at the time. It was low season so fantastic value!

The hotel situated right opposite the Dubai Museum and various shops. A very Arabian feel with the deco (as the name suggests) and close to the airport. Upon checking in the staff very extremely friendly and gave a few discounts for their bar and resturants (which we didnt try). Walking distance to KFC and retail shops. Overall liked our stay.

Thank you for sharing your valuable comments. I am glad to know that our hotel is your first choice in Dubai. Nevertheless, please accept our sincere apology for the unpleasant experience you had in Mumtaz Mahal – our Indian Restaurant, which is not the hotel standard. Rest assured that we will provide better services on your next visit.

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.
