Combining Arabic tradition with global multicultural tastes. The Courtyard offers spectacular al fresco setting. Masterfully blending colours, designs, tastes, and sounds, The Courtyard experience is unique. It is especially known for its relaxed ambience, good food and flavourful shisha, and has earned a reputation for its laid-back atmosphere, ideal for enjoying the company of family and friends. Bon appetit, or as we say in Arabic, hani'an

Great Atmosphere, great service, One of my favorite spots.
Sometimes no seating due to its popularity, but let them take your number and enjoy the atmosphere.
I enjoy any visit here.

“Nice hotel, friendly staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Not a bad place... good location, close to action, if that's why you are here in Dubai.... nice coffee area, small but good spa and swimming pool area also. Rooms are adequate for a few nights. Decor is modern, outside look is trying to conform to some old style. Overall, could say the staff is well trained and that usually what makes one's stay pleasant.
