Dubai is often labelled as the City of Wonders and has an endless amount of attractions for your travel enjoyment. Surrounded by deserts and the spectacular Hajjar Mountains, yet also divided by the Creek, which is an inlet from the gulf that splits the commercial center of the city in half. This is where you will spend most of your time and so it is worth staying at a location such as The Arabian Courtyard. It is not the most expensive hotel in Dubai, but one of the most charming hotels in Dubai. Venture from this urban hotel to the nearby Dubai Museum for the city’s rich history and interesting past.
The Arabian Courtyard Hotel is great for finding culturally traditional wares, the Souks, or market place.

Plus, the malls are tax-free, making it that much more of a shoppers dream.

The Arabian Courtyard Hotel is central as you are going to get to Dubai. You are close to the 2 or 3 days main sightseeing and this is why the Arabian Courtyard Hotel is always busy. Our review of the Arabian Courtyard Hotel is that this is certainly not the best hotel in Dubai. We think it's probably the best value hotel in Dubai - a borderline 4 star hotel that gives you all that you need as an active traveller - a great location, food to eat, and a bed to sleep. It's clean, and it's close to the heart of Old Dubai, Bur Dubai. Very popular amongst tourists, we recommend the Arabian Courtyard Hotel, Dubai.
