“SUPER STAY IN DUBAI”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2012

Having stayed in another hotel the last time we were in Dubai we decided on the Arabian Courtyard for our recent stay. It was a super hotel in a great location, close to Old Souk, the Museum, the river and easy walking to restaurant and shops. The staff in the hotel were so helpful, cheerful and efficient, going out of their way to ensure that everything was first class and you had a super stay.The hotel itself is beautifly decorated and stylish and the rooms superb - our view was off the museum and local mosque and was excellent.

Room Tip: Request a room overlooking the Museum in a high floor

Well located at Bur Dubai, I stayed here twice this month. The staff are friendly, and are helpful most of the time.

To receive the best service, stay in the executive rooms and breakfast in the Executive lounge. A must for the business traveler. The breakfast is only very average though. Well cooked, but average.

The Arabian Courtyard is not a typical 5 star hotel. It is a 4 star, but kept in good condition. The rooms are large, and the air conditioning is great. The Sherlock Holmes pub serves good dinners and the entertainment trio were fantastic and not to loud.

I stayed here for 3 nights for work. The room was huge (the biggest I've ever stayed in), with a separate living room and small kitchenette and two flat screen tv's!. Was all very clean and had nice dressing gowns, slippers etc.

All the staff were very helpful and attentive. I did have a confusion over whether or not breakfast was included with my room, but the staff were very helpful in correcting the error.

There are several restaurants and a bar (The Sherlock Holmes - very English...or at least it tries to be!) in the hotel. I didn't get a chance to try the restaurants for dinner, except for the pub which did decent pub grub. The breakfast was ok, but nothing special. Being a muslim country, they can't really do a fry up justice as they don't do real bacon or pork sausages (they instead had veal bacon and chicken sausages!).

No complaints and would definitely stay again.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights on our way to Maldives.
It is a perfect hotel for this kind of trip.
It is in a convenient location for you to access the metro or the hop on hop off big bus tours.
The Dubai museum is directly opposite.
The room itself was a perfect size a very comfortable, it was well equipped from bathrooms to ironing board.
We used the swimming pool whilst here which is small but adequate.
We had breakfast each morning with plenty of choice to suit everbody.

This hotel is perfect for a stopover but if i were in Dubai for my main holiday i would look at alternate accomadation especially if travelling with children, as it is situated on a very busy road (which you can't hear from rooms).

Jusst come back from a whirlwind trip to Dubai...boiling hot, had to run from hotel to taaxi to handbag shops where everything is wonderfully air conditioned. We just loved this hotel which was very much in the Arab style, with doormen in dress up clothes with turned up pointed slippers. It had three lovely restaurants, a great buffet breakfast included in the room price and an English pub (where you could actually buy alcobholic drinks!). It was 2 minutes walk from the Word Heritage Site of Bastiyaka ?? a quaint Arab village in the middle of a teeming metropolis. It was a few mintes walk to the abra ferry which takes you acrosss The Creek to the Gold Sokh for 1 dirham...about 17pence..Taxis are really cheap and we took one to Palm Island (50dirham)..then went on monorail out to the Atlantis hotel which is a bit like visiting a mini Disneyworld. The hotel staff were friendly and they had a complimentary shuttle bus to the airport. We also went to top of Burj Khaliph..be sure to book in advance on the internet as it is a quarter of the price.

Room Tip: We were a party of 3 and we booked a 2 room .suite that had a double sofa. We had a fridge/micro...
