  • Spent the weekend at the hotel and there is artwork, museums and cafes all over the place. It was an great weekend escape from the city and to experience old Dubai. Enjoy!! 
  • Nothing outstanding art exhibits. But definitely worth a visit to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee relaxing in the bustling city; running your eyes around few paintings and sculptures. 
  • The Café and exploring the bastakiya historic buildings, at the break. Courtyard, terrace and restaurant seating faces it there.
