OK but could be better

Firstly the hotel is clean and the staff are all very friendly and provide great service. Unfortunately we had to wait 40 minutes when we checked in for our room to be ready. We also asked 4 times before our late checkout was confirmed, twice when we checked in, once when they asked us to move rooms and finally after a note was put under our door to remind us to check out at the normal time. Each time they said OK only for it to be forgotten about until I lost my temper with them and it was finally confirmed and put into the system. They also asked us to move rooms half way through our stay but gave different reasons for it. We suspect they wanted our room for as larger group as it had an adjoining room.

This was my fourth stay at this hotel and have been more then satisfied each time I enjoy the althentic Arabic interiors. I was disappointed in one thing this time and that is I paid for a deluxe room with land mark view of the museum and had no view. Better luck next time?

Great location for the old town

Pros: Location. Moderate price. It had all we needed for a stopover.
Location: Over road from museum. 5 minutes walk to original historic area. 10 minutes walk to Creek & Old Souk & abras to cross the Creek,
We chose Arabian Court because we were interested in the historic areas of Dubai. It is located opposite the Dubai Museum & in walking distance of the historic old buildings, old souks, boats to cross the Creek to the gold & spike souks. The rooms were clean & comfortable. The staff were amazingly helpful. The air conditioning was quiet & efficient (essential in Dubai in May). The food at the Pharoah Restaurant in the hotel was OK, but I have eaten many better Arab meals in Melbourne.

Perfect location to the creek and older city

Pros: Friendly and good location
Location: Central to souk, museum, creek
Surprisingly good in house restaurants for the jet lagged day when going out and find a restaurant is too much

Loved the location

Pros: Everything including the fantastic massage
Cons: Disappointed that Rene Beauty Salon wasn't advertised well enough, as I would have loved to treat my wife with some pampering.
Location: Visit the museum, stroll along the creek, plenty of evening shopping. Only 10 minutes from the airport & 15 minutes to the Dubai Mall by taxi
Staff were extremely friendly and couldn't do enough to help us with any of our enquires

A very comfortable and convenient place to stay

Pros: Comfortable room, good value for money. A great view on the North side and only about AED$30 to Dubai Mall and the Burj Khalifa.
Cons: Not much for the price
Location: Right in Bur Dubai near the museum, silk souks and close to the Abras for crossing to the gold and gem souks or a creek tour.
Loved it. A nice clean room in Arabic styling. Stayed four nights.

Good location close to souks

Pros: Convenient location
We arrived at 2am flying in from Sydney, the hotel was easy to find by taxi. Right next to the Dubai museum and silk markets and easy access to gold souks, via boat.Breakfast was taken in the executive lounge on level 7 as the breakfast room downstairs was a bit full and the staff suggested we eat was nice and quiet with a good choice of breakfast items.
