Another early rise this morning. We were expecting Jodie to arrive at our hotel just after 5:30 am, so we were "up and at 'em" and waiting outside when she arrived. Even at that time, on a Sunday morning there were people about on the streets near our hotel; quiet compared to how it is later in the day, but there were people drinking coffee, …
A late start this morning due to a huge sleep in, an extensive breakfast buffet and then another mammoth clothes washing session (travelling is so glamorous). Leaving our hotel room looking like a Chinese laundry we bought tickets for the hop on hop off bus so we could get a feel for Dubai. The lady at the hotel said we should get a taxi to the starting point for the bus but of course we thought we could walk. It was 30 degrees and we ...
... of thinly sliced steak carpaccio due to it being to rare for aunty Alison. All that was followed by black cod, a fish to die for; what a lunch! After this we got changed and went on a drive around Dubai, saw the Burj Al Arab and The Palm Jumeirah where we stopped for a cheeky mojito at Atlantis. Taxi out tonight where we watched the amazing fountain display at the base ...
... on the wrong side of the road Now it is hard to describe Dubai kindly as even at 6.30am in the morning it was stifling hot and the city had haze over it that made it look like we were in a Mad Max movie! We were also being driven on the wrong side the road so that felt weird too. Arrived at Sheraton Mall of the Emirates ( SMOE from now on) hotel looks lovely. I had requested an early check-in and thank goodness we were able too as we all wanted to shower ...
... which consisted of Denmark, Sweden, Norway (together called Scandinavia), Iceland and Finland, and the Baltic state of Estonia.
For Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Estonia, we would only be visiting the capital cities of Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki and Tallinn. We would spend somewhat more time in Iceland (4 nights) and the longest period of our travel would be in Norway (8 nights).

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Dubai Creek
Just returned from the Hilton Dubai Creek,excellent hotel with a good location in between the city mall,irish village and the souks,non are walking distance but taxis are cheap .
We spent the first week of February in the Hilton, Dubai Creek on the Exec floor. Much has been written about the cool, stylish interior and I must say it is all true. very impressive. An overnight flight meant we arived in Executive Reception at about 9.30am local time, far sooner than one might expect to be accommodated but Vivian didn't bat an eye. A relatively short wait and we were shown to our room - once again a design classic - especially the black marble and glass bathroom. One caveat - creek view also refers to the "back side" of the hotel, - a view now very restricted by the tower block built alongside 3 years ago. If its an issue for you - ask for the seaward view. That said, we were rehoused without question.
A fantastic hotel in the middle of Dubai. Stayed there 2 nights ago after a week at the Hilton Dubai Jumeriah before taking an early flight back to the UK. Deluxe Plus room was probably one of the best hotel rooms I have stayed in with a fantastic panoramic view over the Dubai Creek.
stayed here for 4 nights with my boyfriend in january 05. after a short drive from the airport (cab cost approx 3) met with a very warm welcome from the friendly reception staff and led straight up to our room. Rooms are huge: bed big enough 4, fantastic views over the Creek and a huge marble bathroom. Breakfast was great value to, all you could possibly ask for, inc cereals, toast, full english, pastries etc.
Stayed 9th - 13th January. 14 level blue glass building on on main road running parellel with Dubai Creek (hence the name). Lobby entered on ground floor - overall small (about the size of a average house floorplan) which sets the style of the hotel. Done in black marble, chrome and glass with two glass staircases leading up each side of a central walkway (the walkway leads to two lifts - the stairs up to another bar, hotel cafe/coffee shop where breakfast is served and Verve - the Gordon Ramsey run restaurant). Business centre (small) on ground floor as is a shop (magazines, souviners, books and sundries) and the Martini bar. Lifts are tiny - hard pushed to get one couple and luggage in them (which is why they bring it up separate). However this hotel for some reason never seems crowded and hence we rarely had more than us in the lift (despite it being booked out and having 150 rooms). Level 8 room - Deluxe Executive with spa. Was at front of hotel looking over the creek/ dhow wharves across the road (dual carriageway with a park so they no-one see in) - very nice view day or night. Large room on corner with floor to ceiling windows on 2 sides. Queen bed, 2 trendy heavy black and chrome chairs, glass desk, t/v with 30 channels of cable from around the world, DVD player, minbar, c/d player/music centre and a nice trendy cappachino/ drip filter machine. Adequete storage and bathroom was long and skinny behind mirrored glass sliding doors but didnt feel small. Shower at one end, spa bath at other (looking through windows with blinds you could close) and toilet/ vanity in between. Large range of luxury toiletries. Overall style was very trendy/ contempory and a bit minimalistic. Nightly turn down service. Hallways were nice with blue fluro lights set in the floor and a flower arrangement at the end - hotel is not wide with lifts at back and one hallway heading down centre to front of hotel. Hence there was only about 16 rooms per floor - most have some sort of creek view (even the standard). Room service always quick and prices reasonable (about 45 dirham - AUD$18 or GBP7 for a club sandwich and fries with a small salad). Rooftop pool with fantastic views although seating a bit tight and only takes about 20 people to fill up the pool loungers so get there ealry on a hot day. Small bar and meal area also up there. Executive lounge level 12- served a very small mediocre continental breakfast - you are encouraged to have your breakfast in the cafe where a larger choice is on offer (although compared to other hotels this was also a lot smaller in choice). Club lounge (really a converted room) has far to little seating and if you werent there by 6pm (happy hour) you took pot luck - seats about 15 people and given theres over 40 club rooms this is one area they fell down on. Small afternoon tea (nice) - allday coffee/tea/soft drinks and evening canapes and cocktails - once again a nice view looking towards the creek and the sheraton (about 300 metres away). One word of warning - if you require a taxi the hotel has their "own" limo taxis often out the front and will bring them up instead of a normal taxi - these charge a higher fare (are unmetred so check before u get in). For example one wanted to charge 15 dirham to Deira City centre mall (just down road and able to walk to if you dont fear the crazy drivers) whereas a normal metred taxi should be no more than 10 Dirham. If no taxis around just go on street and hail one down -plenty of them. Overall, very nice smaller Hilton with a very boutique feel but still having most of the things a full service hotel has. Although you will either love or hate the trendy decor. Good location (walk one street back and down the road left and you come to the old town-perfectly safe for walking around at night) and both the Sheraton and Intercontinental are nearby if you wanted to have a drink/feed somewhere else. Apart from the minor problems noted above, would stay here again.
I've stayed at this Hotel several times since it opened about 3 years ago. All the comments about the service and design etc are true, stay in an executive plus room and the view is the same as from the pool, gobsmacking. If you're Gold with Hilton hhonors then you'll get an upgrade, access to the exec lounge, free use of facilities and the best of all , every time I've stayed there I've had room service breakfast for two and never been charged or it, saved me a fortune !
Great stop over hotel.
Although we only stayed at the hotel for one night we found this a superb hotel for acess to the centrl areas of Dubai. The airport, Shopping Centres and souks are all near by.
The staff were very friendly and it seemed would go out of their way to help.
The dim lighting, mirrors, chrome and glass everywhere can be a bit off-putting at times though. Not sure if I enjoy so many mirrors in the bathroom either - but that is personal taste.
The only let down was we were not to be able to try out the restaurant on our evening there - there was what looked like a ticket only, jewelery launch on and they prevented guests from using quite a large part of the hotel.
This hotel is well positioned for everything and I would go back tomorrow. The transfer from the airport is about 10 mins and that is only because of the odd one way system.
I spent four nights at the Hilton Dubai Creek in September 2004.
What a design
Great hotel. situated at the famous Creek (far away from the beaches). Great design, however you must like it. If you like stylistic modernism, you will love it, for many people it will be to clean. Rooms are fabulous. Book a corner room, it's worth it. Two walls of your room are totally made out of glass, providing a great view over Dubai. Bathrooms are made out of black stone, with jacuzzi and seperate showers. I travel a lot, this was one of the best rooms I have ever had. Breakfast is ok, restaurant (I tried one) are super. A great place to stay if you visit Dubai for business or to explore the city.
