    Excellent breakfast, great crepes! Wonderful ambience. Ideal location for old Dubai. Attentive and knowledgeable staff. My sister, visiting from Australia, so happy with the hotel - courtyards, Cafe, artwork that was modern and yet retaining the Arabic decor.

    This is such a quaint, quiet and restful place to stay. I love the court yard cafe and the service by all at the hotel is so friendly and helpful. All the room amenities of a flashy hotel too. Can't wait to visit again.
