We have just spent two nights in Old Town Dubai - we loved the character of Ahmedia Guest House and felt we were experiencing the Dubai culture. The location was good and in walking distance of the Spice and Gold Souks and the Creek and the old Dubai Souk which we loved - the whole atmosphere was charming. The Front...

We booked with TripAdvisor and Booking.com on 19.11, got the confirmation email, sent it to the property, called theem and they stated that they have not received anything from booking.com or from us. Forwarded again the Booking.com confirmation email and called them back in 10 minutes, they acted like they have received nothing. I asked if they have free roms...

Dear Guest , Greeting ! must be something wrong here as that not the service we aim to provide and why we should not accept your booking if it was booked and confirmed . Therefore you may contact me directly to investigate this matter. Respectfully yours, Fadi Al Khrissat

I only had one night in Dubai, however really enjoyed my stay at the Ahmedia Guest House. Large room and just loved the classic styling of everything. Very good service as well. Just a beautiful old place. Also quite a good location, walking distance to the Gold Market, Spice Market and the creek.

Second stay here. The service and location are what brought me back. The lady on desk I think her name is Helena was brilliant. nothing too much trouble for her. the rooms are perhaps a little dated but quite nice. I love the location near the Gold Souk away from the multi storey hotels and shopping malls. Excellent breakfast again...

We stayed three nights at Ahmedia Heritage Guesthouse in August 2016. Our room was on the ground floor and quite well appointed. Unfortunately the plumbing in the wall was leaking which kept the bathroom in a perpetual flood. They did organise for it to be fixed but a little put out that we even had to point it out to...

Lovely old place with all mod cons. We loved the atmosphere, the high ceilings, the wonderful furniture and the amazing padlocks on the doors. Because it is tucked away it is very quiet (except for the call to prayer from the next door mosque!) And the staff were wonderful giving exceptional service. Location is great for visiting the spice souk...

I chose this one up not only because I like to get some feel of their traditional way of life, but also I want to stay away from the skyscrapers. We are from NYC, and I see the tall buildings each day !

Lovely, charming place. Relaxing, restful, quiet and tranquil stay. The front-desk employee provided us with exceptional customer service and she went above and beyond her duties. The room was clean, the air conditioning worked. It is a heritage location, so the water pressure was a bit low, but it didn't affect us in any way. The inner courtyard and the...

Cool and clean room -- excellent. Easy 4 minute walk from Al Ras metro. Helpful staff. Outstanding breakfast. Great value for the money. Very quiet. Shops and restaurants nearby. A short walk outside from main building to our room, but not a problem.

Staying in The Creek

Neighbourhood Profile
The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original air conditioning. Home to the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding and the Dubai Museum, the old buildings also house a range of cafes, shops and art galleries. Often called “the real Dubai,” this is a wonderful place to lose yourself before catching an abra across the creek to the spice souk, where your senses will be overwhelmed with tastes, smells, and sounds.
