Reviewed 29 December 2016

Very rude and disappointing staff and management. Avoid at all costs, it is a place for labor workers and cheap girls of the night, when I tried to cancel this booking they did not even refund the rest of the four unused nights. It is a very cheap hotel that is not even good if you are alone!

Booked the hotel as it was close to the WTC. Was on business for the Automekanica show in Dubai. Booked the Downtown Hotel on the net. Very disappointing as there is no where on the booking site that it is a "DIY" hotel. No laundry service, no bathroom accessories as simple as a shower cap. Very curt staff. No concierge...

The moment we went into the room, we spotted many live bedbugs. Also, the bed linen was full of blood strains from bed bugs. Therefore, we did not check into this hotel. I Would sincerely not recommend this hotel to anyone, especially when travelling with family.

I booked this hotel on a business trip to dubai. It was a budget trip. I got an offer from bookings.com that saved about 33%. So booked with them. The room I got on check in was horrible. The AC was not working and also the room had a serious bed bugs infestation, I complained and they gave me a...

What a truly horrendous dive of a place this is. The photos (I had the misfortune of staying in the brochure picture room) do nothing for the truly grim reality of this disgusting place. It is possibly the worst excuse of a hotel (I lived in China for a year too!) I've ever had the dire luck of staying at....

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.
