We wanted to stay somewhere more authentic not just in a hotel that could have been in Melbourne. The Arabian Courtyard was very comfortable, the staff most welcoming and helpful and the location excellent! The old town museum is amazing and directly opposite. The hop on hop off bus stop is also just across the road and it is an...

A great place to stay. Staff just could not have been more helpful or pleasant. Rooms are large and well equipped but the view was of roof tops was a little disappointing. The roof top pool was just a great space to be with lovely padded sun beds and not crowded. Food was excellent all round a great stay.

Absolutely loved the Arabian Courtyard. Staff are friendly, helpful & welcoming, from airport pick-up to airport drop-off. Our room (executive room 8th floor) overlooked the street & the Dubai Museum with an amazing view of the creek. Bed was huge & comfy, room was clean and well furnished with lots of space. Bathroom a little cramped, but had everything you...

This is NOT your typical, homogenized, off-the-shelf hotel! If you are looking for a little of the magic of the Arabia of old, the Arabian Courtyard Hotel & Spa will certainly meet your needs.

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.
