        Great location in the older part of Dubai. Comfortable and very well priced

        No airconditioned areas except room. Public areas / courtyard traditional and hot as temperatures were in excess of 45 degrees every day. Room very cool but airconditioner very noisy. This hotel Would be much more comfortable at cooler time of year when not so impacted by extreme heat.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        We really liked the traditional style of the renovated hotel in keeping with the original architecture of the old Dubai area

        Bit hard to find for a first time visitor. Most taxi drivers did not know how to get to the hotel, or near proximity based solely on the address

      • Family with children
        7.8

        Tradition Arabic house set around a courtyard, a quiet haven and not what you would expect in Dubai, a refreshing change from the usual modern hotels.

      • Couple
        8.8

        The place is an old castle. It is very old and traditional. If you want to know the culture of dubai ,just go there. Staff are so friendly

        No tv in rooms( tradional is ok but not that so far!!!). No telephone. Vo private parking. Cafe is closing at 7:00 pm

      • Single

        We loved the concept. The staff was also very helpful.The breakfast was really good.

        The room was a bit small, but nothing really important

        Staff treated us like a King and a Queen! They have been so nice to us that we wished that day would never ends... it's really an Art Hotel!

      • Couple
        7.0

        Loved the setting. Had a magic about it. The quiet was great too!

        The room we stayed in should not be described as a Deluxe Room! It wasn'T.

      • Single
        10.0

        Loved this place: quirky, artistic and beautifully restored in the cultural quarter. Lovely friendly staff, great food, perfect location if you want to explore "old" dubai, rather than shiny sky scrapers.

        If you want something different from the 'International Glass' towers of Dubai, and if you want something close to what Dubai was before it changed then the xva Art hotel maybe what you seek. The design of the hotel is based on the courtyard homes of old Dubai. Be prepared for the heat as you need to walk to and from where the car/taxi drops you off and even though it's a short distance the heat is draining.

        The rooms at the xva are nice, but are of a simple design, even though some are called deluxe they are still basic in facilities.The hotel would not be easy to find if you did not use the transfer provided by the hotel as it is centred in a development based on the old souk designs of Dubai, narrow lanes etc. Almost maze like.

        I really liked the smell of pure natural wood in the room! It was a great experience!

      • Family with children
        9.6

        The staff were always pleasant and made us feel very welcome - nothing was ever too much trouble. The location made us feel like we were actually staying in the uae (which we wanted). The Dinner and Dhow cruise was also really great and recommended. The hotel was beautifully presented and the art installations were interesting to walk through.

        Didn't like the fact that the doorway into the bathroom is at the height of a 5 year old child. The door to the room is at that height too - but that is ok. But I didn't feel it necessary that the door into the bathroom needed to be at the same height - this was annoying and dangerous to someone who is 6'4"!!! We also didn't get The Deluxe Suit (room 1) as booked - but instead got Room 6 (Junior or Mini something??) Maybe this room was better? Don't know....

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        Nice and helpfull staff, comfort environment, neatness room,price reasonable, the most important thing is, everything make us feel free.

        just had no pool, or it will be perfect.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        Relaxed and charming - full of character. Quiet and hidden away from bustle of city but easy walk to heart of city. Wonderful mini break.

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        The location is exceptional being withing walking distance to the Souks and the Creek

        Not applicable

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        it is a location a bit more arabic than the rest of Dubai

        a more continuous maintenance is recommended, to conserve this treasure
