Booked Via Expedia who provided the cheapest package with KLM, KLM not the best airline but cheap.

First Impression of the Hotel is that it is one of the oldest hotels in Dubai before the Boom, i would question its four star status and give it a 3.5.

I booked a family room which had a main bedroom, a lounge and a bathroom.

lets start with the negatives first as there are not many but they did stand out.

1-Room could be more cleaner, I suspect with a few cleaners the guys have to cut corners to get everything done.

2-Swimming pool when my kids made some noise with some other kids we were told to be quiet, not good for Kids as they will make noise. also the deck chairs are far too close to the pool as there is no room.

3- if you have kids please make sure that they get out the taxi slowly as there is limited parking at the front of the Hotel. i am sure you love your kids as much as i do mine.

4 family room i had to sleep on the sofa bed, which only slept one, if you have grown up kids then you may need two rooms and the fridge in the lounge is noisy.


Positives

1 Buffet breakfast was hearty and with plenty selection to cater for European, South Asian, Arabian, dare i say it for American as well.

2 Staff were friendly and very helpful and some very colourful.

3 decent restaurant, although I eat out most of the time.

4 Spa is very good, i treated the wife, bit expensive.

5 very close to the metro station AL Fahidi, but i took taxi everywhere as the kids are too small to wonder on the metro.

Airport to hotel Approx 50 Dirhams
Hotel to Wild wadi 50 Dirhams
Hotel to city centre mall 20 Dirhams



6 supermarket very close to hotel, as you walk out the hotel turn right, and you cant miss it.

7 Some very good restaurants close by Mumbia Juice bar, turn left from the hotel, turn left again and on the corner.

7.1 Karachi Inn for some fantastic Pakistani food.

8 Plenty shops close by gold shoppers.

9 Forgot to ADD WIFI included in the price although bit hit and miss the kids whilst not in the pool or at wild wadi found their favourite episodes on you tube.

If you are doing Dubai on a mid range budget, then this hotel is for you, not too expensive not too cheap either, you get what you pay for. if the hotel was modernised, may be will need 10 Million GBP to bring it up to a four star hotel but then prices will go up. enjoy the hotel

The staff at this hotel were amazing, I was nervous about staying in a strange city but the wonderful staff put me at ease immediately, they were friendly and very efficient, considering the hotel was full to overflowing. Management at this hotel have done a very good job at training staff. My room was huge and comfortable and had everything that I needed. I had a meal in the Asian restaurant and was very pleased with the meal and the little waitress. I am looking forward to taking my husband back for a wonderful stay.

Unprofessional! The night duty manager was so full of himself he preferred twiddling his fingers rather than assist his slow receptionist complete 18 check ins at 2am !!! Lay over passengers does not mean you provide rubbish service! I would never recommend this hotel! It's not conveniently located! The staff are neither polite nor informed!

HabibKhan, General Manager at Arabian Courtyard Hotel & Spa, responded to this reviewResponded 27 April 2013

Thank you for sparing the time and posting a review of your experience at the TripAdvisor.

While we regret not being able to fully meet your expectations on this particular trip, I appreciate receiving your feedback regarding services and on Night Manager as it will help us to improve our services and facilities to better care for our guest needs.

Arabian Courtyard Hotel and Spa receives many high ratings on its’ reviews and the team takes great pride on these achievements, where customer satisfaction is our top priority; we do not undermine the importance of meeting customer’s expectations and always eager to provide them with adequate service irrespective of length of their stay. We take full responsibility and will not be offering any excuse for such shortcomings and unwelcoming experience! However, at this point of time, I can only offer our sincere apology and hope that this isolated experience will not completely hinder you from considering a repeat stay with us as we all look forward for an opportunity to regain your trust in the quality of our product.

Meantime, may I elaborate on the hotel location. Our location is the very best selling asset for us and most of the tourists chose us for two key reasons; Location, Arabian theme and hospitality. We are located in the heart of Downtown by the Creek, where the urban Dubai and it’s boom started, surrounded by Old Souk, bargain shops, the museum, Rulers Court, Embassies and consulates, etc. We are not in the new Dubai with sky scrapper but for a layover and transit passengers, our location serves well as its only 6 kilometers away from the Airport, surrounded by shops and 24 hours Supermarkert next door.

Once again, my apology and thank you for your feedback and hope to see you in near future to change your opinion about Arabian Courtyard Hotel & Spa.

This is a great place to stay if having a few nights stopover in Dubai. The service at this hotel was outstanding. We arrived at the hotel at 6 am and had to wait to 8 am toget into a room ( no early check in fee required). All the staff are freindly and helpful. Rooms are quite large and if you pay a little extra have great views over old Dubai. Location is great for seeing old Dubai, gold and spice silk souls and the creek.
Taxis are cheap to visit other areas. Hotel also has a bar ... Handy in dubai.

An excellent hotel in old town Dubai. Staff couldn't be friendlier or helpful, easy to get a taxi or bus from to new Dubai with in house day trip desk, spotless rooms average pool but fantastic food with a choice of visiting the 2nd floor pub Indian restaurant and al a cart restaurant as well as a cafe.
