Quaint and comfortable authentic Arabian style of Old Dubai

Reviewed 9 july, 2019

My husband and I had actually booked and paid for another Heritage area hotel, the Hotel Barjeel Heritage Guest House, but when we arrived in the evening after a very long and tiring flight we were told at that hotel that they were FULL (???) and they then called the Orient Guest House, who agreed to send someone to come pick us up to spend our one night before our cruise. At first we were both rather upset as we had planned far ahead to have an authentic Arabian hotel experience and forgo the glitzy high rise hotels, but when we saw our lovely Arabian style room, though small, with its obvious antique firnishings, the super comfortable king sized canopy bed and nice size bathroom, we calmed down. Our room opened right onto the ground floor breakfast patio area and had an ancient thick giant-sized wooden door with a huge old padlock. The room was very quiet and we slept great! In the morning we enjoyed our breakfasts on the patio that we had ordered the night before we retired. We even had some delicious dates with our meal. I did wonder what the very thick "bacon" was slced from? It had quite a different taste. Somehow we missed seeing the roof terrace although we saw other guests heading up the stairs and just thought they were going to higher floor guest rooms. It would have been nice if the person checking us in the night before had mentioned it, but it was getting quite late. After breakfast we were amazed to discover that this hotel is located right in the heart of the Heritage Center and tour groups are walking all around that area. We loved how close it is to the canal, the Dubai Museum and so much more. I would choose to stay here again!

A charming guesthouse.

Reviewed 7 june, 2019

We have stayed here a couple of times. It is excellent value and offers a traditional Arabian villa with a central courtyard. Our room was very large and generous with a king size bed with a very comfortable mattress and nice snowy white linen. The bathroom was long and narrow but had a bath and plenty of room to stow your stuff. There was plenty of hot water. There was also a kettle so we could make ourselves a cup of tea. It was charmingly decorated and very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very generous with a hot course. Would have preferred a typical Arabian breakfast (instead of baked beans for example) but no complaints really. This guesthouse is in a great position, inside in the Historic Centre and you can walk around the lovely narrow little laneways very safely, even at night. The Arabian Tea House just a few steps away is fantastic for dinner, providing a traditional and enormous feast that was delicious. The gold and spice souks are just across the creek and easily found. Lots of nice places to visit and walk from here. You can catch the train from the Airport to the local station and its just a short walk from there to the guesthouse, all easily done. Staff were welcoming, helpful and kind. It may not be a 5 star place but it is a comfortable and happy alternative - listening to the Call to Prayers throughout the day and evening was very special.

Lovely quiet location, a taste of historic Dubai and close to all old Dubai sites

Reviewed 7 may, 2019

This is our second time to visit and it was as good as the previous visit. Our room this time was o the roof Traditionally furnished with a beautiful carved wardrobe.. Bed was very comfortable and good bathroom with plenty of hot water. ( turn on water heater though) There is a roof terrace as well Breakfasts were in the main courtyard and was average. One step outside the courtyard and you were in the wonderfully historic labyrinth of narrow streets in Old Dubai.. So well located for walking to all the sites and the Creek. The metro was easy to locate and quick and cheap to use to get us to Dubai mall/Fountains and the higherst building. The light show was amazing!

Charming hotel in old Dubai

Reviewed 28 april, 2019

We consider it fortunate that we were able to stay at the Orient Guest House. It was such a delight to enjoy the historic atmosphere of the hotel and it's surrounding area. The staff were most helpful and welcoming, the breakfast was very good and the room comfortable and just so charming. Thank you Orient Guest House and staff for making our visit to Dubai a wonderful experience.

Chic, old-Dubai Style guest house - highly recommended!

Reviewed 22 april, 2019

I was so glad that I stumbled on this place and spent two nights here. This is a chic, old-Dubai style guest house that is a stone throw's from Dubai Museum and the Textile souk. It is located in the Al Fahidi Historic District. I had no regrets at all booking the place. Hot showers and working air-conditioning, with a very comfortable bed. THe breakfast was buffet styel and more than sufficient. The price - it was a very good deal - well worth the money. To top it off, the staff were excellent and very accomodating to my requests. My friend and I came in at 5am and they accomodated us in the Majlis (a room for us to rest) and even agreed to change my friend's breakfast to the first day. He entertained my many other queries as well and was so very patient - thank you so much Patric! The lady at the reception (Lorena) was also great and very helpful! The hotel has no gym and pool but you can head over to their parent hotel the Arabian Courtyard Hotel where you can use their facilities free of charge. I would not hesitate to stay at the Orient Guest House again if I return to Dubai and I highly recommend this place to anyone who want to explore a different side of Dubai.
