Some of plumbing needs updating
The guest house is in old town of Dubai and for people as me who doesn ´t like large hotels it was a very good decision. Camels in front of hotel, very good breakfast, very clean and spacious room and Alena (she has my name) at the reception desk was perfect and very clever.
I dont have any bad experience.
Arabic breakfast - always choose this. Very easy to explore Bur Dubai and Deira from here. Right next to Metro station and taxi rank. Camels living next to the hotel! Waterfront restaurant. Traditional feel. Helpful staff.
Continental breakfast - never choose this. Taxi can't drop off at the door and there are many small steps so luggage needs to be portable and not too heavy. Our room was not part of the central courtyard, we felt like second class guests. Dim lighting in room. Poor advice from the hotel about using the metro to get to and from the airport (it doesn't run on Friday mornings and a taxi is quicker and more consistent - we had to run to catch our flight on the way home!) (advice given by phone so may have been someone at the mother hotel, Arabian Courtyard, rather than this hotel) . We arrived early morning so booked to stay the night before so we could use the room when we arrived, but they forgot this and marked us as a no show -we were lucky there was a room left! They were also reluctant to give us breakfast and service the room the day we arrived even though we were paying for the preceding night. Restaurant food rather average.
location is very good for who like to feel the heritage of Dubai,and metro station is few steps only. staff very helpful. good for winter time where no much insects,or dust. staying up to 5 days Max which is enough to enjoy staying there.
The flying and insects in the room and the restaurant where can bother enjoying your sleeping or eatting because of the Camels beside the hotel.
We were upgraded with no extra charge, love the room. Staff are excellent. Location by the dubai creek. Mrt jus 2min walk. Mena bazar jus 5min walk.
Recently they had camels beside the hotel creating unpleasant smell and lots of flies but luckily room not affected. Was informed hotel mgmt will look into this.
Loved the Arab style of the and the fantastic location, 50m from the metro station and with plenty of restaurants to enjoy a balmy night on the river -- gorgeous. Also while travelling with a toddler, we appreciated the nearby camels and donkeys which provided great entertainment and diversion!
Our layover booking involved a 22 hour stay at Barjeel. Although previously communicated that we would arrive early in the morning (9AM), there had been no mention of a 200DRM "early check-in fee" --- and when plenty of rooms were available, why would we have to pay extra? After rounds of negotiations the "fee" was magically dropped --- not a great start to our stay, and in fact extremely off-putting when considering our next stay in Dubai. The good-sized room was cozy and in original Arab style, which we loved. We knew humidity from the nearby river was an issue, so were not surprised to find cracked/peeled areas in the stucco. The room was reasonably clean, but definitely not to a 4-star standard (found a black hair on the sheets) Definitely go for the rooms on the inside, facing the courtyard. A few rooms are only accessible from the other side of the building, which is a hassle. While a number of the inside rooms were available, we did not receive one due to the energetic discussions at check-in --- again, not a pleasant interaction, and one that could have been so easily avoided. Lastly, hot water supply seems to be an issue. Due to our early check-out we could not clarify this with the staff, however our morning shower was definitely cold!
Staff were friendly and helpful. Location is right on the sea front and walk. Breakfast was fulfilling. Bed overall was comfy. Recommend it to a different look and feel of the lavish Dubai
Nothing really, just keep in mind that there is no direct access by car. You have to park in the nearby parking . Careful though on Saturday you need to pay for parking. I got fined for lack of knowledge .
This was a quaint place to stay. The staff are excellent, but the best thing is how close it is to the Al Ghubaiba metro station. It's practically at the doorstep. The bus station is only a block away. It's primarily an immigrant workers neighborhood, so there's lots of good, cheap Indian food in the area.
I had trouble figuring out how to control the hot water heater which has its own on/off switch. I ended up with a cold shower early in the morning, so I would recommend asking about this at check in. A butler is on call 24 hours, but I was too lazy to bother calling.
Service and Staff very helpful
Location is perfect to visit the old part of town. Room is very confortable and staff is very helpful. It is also a few steps from subway station and central bus station where buses to Abu Dhabi depart.
The location mostly
Not enough staff. The general feel and treatment was not five star.
Position: it's very close to Metro station, to Bus station and Boat station for Deira. Kindness of staff. Arabian Style and cleanliness of room and of property. WI-Fi free. High quality of services. The best value for money!
This has to be the nicest place in Dubai: typical arabic architecture, next to the metro and by the water. And so confortable!
I liked everything!
Loved the architecture and location
Great location next to creek and metro, good value for money
slow check in and check out process, no customers at attached restaurant, very quiet
Like being in an Arabian Night. Medieval feel with absolute modern comfort. Not kitch.. Great service,lovely staff, good food, close to transport, museums and bazaars. Easy travelling on the metro. We'll be back!
The peace and charm of the old Dubai is excellent. This is important as a first impression of the place. Keep the glitzy part until later. But all together it is VERY interesting and VERY well done.
If you don't want the generic hotels and malls this is your best choice. Service was on the weak side, but delivered with a smile. Really enjoyed the small facility, courtyard, lounging area overlooking the Creek, heritage feel, and 50 metres to the subway. Will be back.
Quiet, charming decor and very good wifi and warm welcome.
Shower drained slowly.
Loved the heritage and idea that I was sleeping in a royal residence. Would have liked to have known if I had slept in the queen's or king's room. Loved the location, beside the metro. The pillows were awesome. Loved the triple sheeted bed. Appreciated the shampoo & conditioner.
No hot water. No toothpaste. Impossible to watch TV in bed. Had to check behind all the curtains that any possible windows were locked, but found out the curtains were decorative. It was very late and I was very tired. Perhaps the attendant could tell the next weary traveller. There was no attendant when we left for the day, so I had to leave my room key, as the attendant had requested in the opened glass cupboard. this made me feel uneasy, as any one could have retrieved the key and entered my room. Was not aware the hotel had airport pick up. Paid 64 dirhams to get to the hotel. Waited a long time for scrambled eggs to show up at breakfast. Was disappointed not to find a mattress protector pad inbetween the fitted sheet and the mattress.
the location was interesting
smelly, musty towels, room dark
Beautiful old heritage building. Large, comfortable rooms done in traditional style. Close to the metro, the heritage village and the creek. Amazing on-site restaurant. Good breakfast. Gym and swimming pool can be used at nearby hotel.
Love being so close to the creek. Beautiful mornings and evenings. Close to green line. Very friendly staff.
Room was never serviced. Once. Asked for service. Nothing. Attached restaurant was good but a bit pricey
It felt like the location was too central/open with people from outside playing right outside the room
traditional Arabic style house located in the Heritage village right alongside the Creek. No cars so very quiet. Bus and metro station within walking distance. Also nearby is the old souk and abra stations for the gold and spice souks. You feel very much part of the local scenery.
plain breakfast which needs to be pre-ordered. No atmosphere in the restaurant.
