Dune Busting and a Camel Named Bubbly

A travel blog entry by teacherintl on Jul 02, 2014

We overslept through breakfast which meant that we did not make it out the door as early as expected today. Unfortunate if you are trying to beat 110 degree heat. So we decided to have brunch at the hotel (since that's the only place you can eat during Ramadan anyway). Lar opted for the Camel Burger which he said tasted like beef (not, as you might …

Dubai: It's Not a Dry Heat

Getting into Dubai, we saw sand, sand and more sand. The surrounding country side was romantically like a Middle Eastern painting when viewed from the plane. But after collecting our bags and getting on the shuttle to go to our hotel we were a little disappointed that it felt, well, a bit like Las Vegas or Manhattan with a lot of Arabic writing. …

Another day in Dubai and another day of 40deg plus.

After an OK night sleep,it was time for a great breakfast before setting out for the day. I first headed to the sail hotel. An amazing designed hotel and a world famous structure. I think it is a 5 or 6 star hotel but a bit to rich for my blood.

Next I headed to the beach, at …

Well I have just landed in Dubai and although it is 6am I am wide awake a have been for a few hours.

The flight from Adelaide was good, I left at 10pm so that gave me a chance to watch the first half of the state of origin in the bar with Karlie before I had to make my way through to departures and say my good bys.

Dubai in a day

It's amazing what you can achieve in one day when you have limited time to explore a city as unique as this one where old meets new. First stop: walk down to the textile & spice markets which weren't open due to nothing opens in Dubai until 10am, OK so we make note to go back in afternoon to check it out. So then we continue on our walking …

    Great service! The staff cannot be more helpful. Sy whisked our bags to the room on a magic carpet and proceeded to give us our "wishes." Then gave us directions to every place under the sun. Everyone was so nice. The rooms and décor are very Persian and so beautiful! The value can't be beat either.

    My wife ad I visited the Hotel late August/12, just a day or two after Ramadan ended. The accommodations (Room 511) were very comfortable with a mini-bar, good bathroom, comfortable bed. Our room view overlooked the Dubai Museum right across the street, with Dubai Creek on the other side of it. We used the Hop-On Hop-Off bus for 2 days (24 hr pass) and its stop was right beside the Museum so, again, the location of our Hotel was just right. The old souk was a short walk away -- not much compared to Marrakesh or Istanbul or in Egyptian cities, but always worth a poke. Funny how you mention "Got a nice Rolex?" to a vendor and another guy at the end of the souk knows what you want before you get there! This Hotel is an affordable, clean place with so-so eateries but acceptable and good service.

    Good if your on a budget


    the one way system that the hotel is on is a nightmare if you are driving there. the lobby is very normal business like hotel with small check in and cute glass lifts. the staff are quite helpful although its definately not 5 star service they were very sweet and give you complimentary drinks whilst you check in. the room itself was really great (and a bargain at around £80+tax from it was very big and clean and modern with nice arabic style deco. almost the same kind of standard as mina a salem but half the price. the only draw backs were the bathroom which was tiny! and the window that you couldn't open. breakfast was included and again wasn't 5 star but for the price we paid we were more than happy. the area itself is very near the creek, souks and lots of places to eat ,but if driving the traffic is a nightmare. we didn't use the pool but it seemed fine although very small. there was also a steam room. sauna etc which we didn't use but looked good. i personally would rather stay in Jumeriah area if i go back but if you are on a budget i would definately recommend this hotel.

    Loved it


    My husband and I stayed here for 10 days at the end of April and we both absolutely loved this hotel. Firstly, the location was great - the bazaars are just around the corner, which was handy if we fancied a late night walk and a bite to eat. The museum is just opposite the hotel and the creek is a stone's throw away. I found I much preferred Bur Dubai to Deira or Jumeirah, Deira being far too busy and full of very insistent shopkeepers and Jumeirah is mostly under construction at the minute.

    Loved Dubai


    Stayed at this hotel for 1 week and had the most amazing time ever. Hotel is beutifull and could not find a fault - nice arabian style decor and a beutifull view of the old fort from the window. Hotel staff are excellent and nothing is too much trouble for them. To make this trip amazing I would reccomend the following:

    Good hotel in a fantastic location


    We have just returned after 3 nights here on the way back from Australia and could not find any fault with this hotel and is probably better that some so called 5 star hotels around the world. The hotel decor and rooms were immaculate and the staff were always friendly and helpful. There was plenty of choice for breakfast and although we didn't eat in the hotel the service in the bar was good. Location was excellent. After going on a tour of the beach area we were glad not to be staying there as it really does resemble a building site and given that this hotel was a third of the average price of the beach hotels. There is plenty within walking distance - Museum, the creek, plenty of shops and souks in the area. We would definately stop here again!



    We got from Dubai a few weeks ago. We paid for an exceutive room (this included a separate check in lounge, a separate breakfast, and cocktails in the evenings. This sounded all very special but were very disappointed with the so called 'executive' service. First of all, breakfast was served in a small breakfast lounge which when busy we had to queue for a table - not something you want first thing in the morning!! Secondly, the food was average. There was no sign or offer of omelette/fried eggs and accepted this is not included in the breakfast until we overheard another guest talking about how long he had to wait for his omelette - half an hour!! Food was not readily replenished and sometimes had to wait ages before this happened.We stayed for 9 days and only got up for breakfast about 5 times - It just wasn't worth getting up for!!!

    A great Arabian Experiance


    Me and my partner stayed 10 nights at the Arabian Courtyard and to be honest we were very impressed with the service we recieved throughout our stay, the staff are very friendly and are always willing to help, the rooms were very clean and maintained throughout the stay. We were made very welcome here and i would definately recommend staying here its definately worth it.

    Great Hotel


    Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights and it was a very pleasurable stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. As we arrived we was greeted with fruit juice and without delay we was checked in.

    The hotel was clean and tidy and room service was excellent. The breakfast was everything you could wish for and hospitality was excellent.

    The hotel is in a good location - easy access to all attractions. There is plenty of local shops nearby where we picked up some good bargains on electronics.

    Overall - was well impressed - only one downfall- the travel assistance desk wasnt very helpful and not always there but other hotel staff made up for it!

    Fantastic Hotel


    Stayed here on business and I was extremely impressed!

    The staff were very polite and extremely helpful and were always willing to help!

    I asked and got an upgrade to a suite, which was a beautiful bedroom and living room with microwave and tea making facility.

    It is in a great position, not only for business but for tourism also, with great shops a very short walk away!

    I would certainly recommend this hotel and would hope that it would continue to maintan the very high standards it has reached in the short time it has been open.

    Good Value & Great Location


    We picked this hotel because of it's location and value for money and weren't disappointed with either. Our stay wasn't without problems but was overall very good.

    High marks for arabian courtyard hotel


    with my daughter and grandaughter, i stayed at this central dubai hotel on our way back from new zealand. we were very happy with the service, and friendliness of staff. i upgraded to the executive floor rooms as a treat, which offered seperate dining, bar etc, and was very relaxing after the heat outside. the rooms are not overlarge, but from a front facing room, one can see the sea in the distance, plus views of the creek with the dhows passing along. this hotel is central for the city, the fort, creek, and souks.

    would be happy to stay again.
