Situated in the heart of Dubai on the Al Maktoum Road in the Deira district overlooking Dubai Creek, this hotel is close to the wharfage where traditional dows still sail along the creek from distant ports. It is also near shopping malls and Dubai International Airport.
The hotel bedrooms are tastefully appointed and are very different in design compared to the modern exterior. Every room has an Arabian feel to it, with wooden panelling above the bed and wooden furniture. However the large windows ensure a light and welcoming atmosphere. The rooms are very comfortable and have all modern amenities. The bathrooms, although slightly small, are perfectly functional.
The hotel offers three restaurants in the hotel: Lebanese, Persian and an international one with views overlooking the creek.In the corner of the lobby there is a tent serving traditional Arabian refreshments.
The building was built in 2003 and is becoming a landmark in the area due to its bright glass tower.
The lobby is bright and spacious, with a tall atrium ceiling allowing natural daylight to filter down. The seating area allows guests to relax and enjoy traditional Arabian hospitality in a comfortable environment.
This hotel is ideal for business executives or leisure travelers looking for a modern luxury hotel. In keeping with local customs, this hotel does not serve alcohol throughout the premises. Beach transfers are available from the hotel upon request, subject to availability.
