  • Long fascinated by exploring the culture and history of places, I visited the Heritage House in Dubai's Deira area when still a college student. The place was small, but gave a good insight into the l...  more »

  • Charming Arabian guest house located in the Deira district. Perfect base for exploring and soaking up the atmosphere of the “real” Dubai. The staff was extremely friendly and kind. The family room was very spacious and comfortable. I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for an authentic and personal experience. The Al Ras Metro station is very close and so is the Abra station for crossing the Creek.
  • The hotel move us to different location without informing us in advance. They inform us when we check in that the hotel is under renovation. We have to wait for more than an hour for a driver to pick us up to different hotel to check-in. This is very unprofessional. The picture attached is the car that is taking us to different hotel. Clearly, they do not know how to satisfy customers.
  • Definitely recommended if you want experience old Dubai.Very friendly and helpful staff ,clean and comfortable room.Public transport is perfect, location is just next to metro and water taxis.Very happy with everything and can’t think about anything negative except that we stay only 3 nights.
  • Very unprofessional. They do not inform guest jn advance that the hotel is under renovation. They ask the guest to move to different hotel without letting us know before check-in.
  • Very traditional structure from palm leaf ceilings, dark wooden panels, wooden doors with old heavy locks. Our room had a fan, but I don't think it would be enough during their summer season (thankfully we stayed before the actual heatwave started). Free breakfast is accommodating for a Westener's stomach! Our receptionists during our stay were very friendly. My only suggestion is to have the bathrooms renovated as our bathtub had a huge crack.
