XVA Hotel

Bastakiya | P.O. Box 37304, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
1 review

Pleasant art hotel set in the traditional style found in the Bastakiya quarter. A nice low-key alternative to glitzy alternatives that is in the perfect spot for exporting Old Dubai. Highly recommended. Friendly staff, comfortable rooms, and excellent value.

    One of the most authentic places in Dubai. Make sure you spend a couple of hours walking around and exploring the neighborhood. You can find several galleries, museums along with a small hotel and some cafes. Bastakiya is the historical center of Dubai and where the city started.

    Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding

    Al Souqe Al Kabeer, Al Musalla Rd. - Dubai - United Arab Emirates
    0.04 mi from XVA Hotel
    1 review

    In Dubai, actual Emiratis seem to be like these legendary creatures--you see them from afar, but never really have a chance to interact with them. The SMCCU tries to rectify that a bit by hosting cultural breakfasts and lunches, where a real live Emirati discusses all kinds of cultural aspects and answers questions of all kinds--he even encourages dumb ones. ...

    The Dubai Museum surprised me! I was interested in seeing the old mud fort in Bur Dubai, but was completely unaware of how much information they contain in the exhibits underground below the fort. Lots of tourists, but only 3 dirhams to get in and welcome ac!

    Abra on Dubai Creek

    0.26 mi from XVA Hotel
    49 reviews

    Catching an abra across Dubai Creek is a unique way of moving between the souk areas in old Dubai. Mostly local workers but lots of tourists as well. No tickets, but when the abra driver bangs his money box, you know it's time to pass down your 1 Durham fare.

    Less about shopping than gawking. Hard to find a bargain unless you really know what you are are doing. Somewhat atmospheric but more strip mall than Arabian Nights.

    The Spice Souk is located in Deira and is adjacent to the Dubai Gold Souk. The souk comprises several narrow lanes which are lined with open and closed-roof stores. The stores sell a variety of fragrances, spices, shisha, clothing and other textiles. I love the Souk because you get to haggle and find some wonderful trinkets to take home. Remember ...

    17 reviews

    Dubai has evolved immensely over the last 40 years. Located within the Al Fahidi Fort, a mud tower built to defend Dubai in 1787, is the Dubai museum. It’s well worth the visit (and small charge of 3 AED) to discover the startling changes the city-state has undergone within such a short span of time. Though the museum is not ...

    The metro system was just so clean and well keep. I wonder why New Yorkers cant keep there system so well maintained and clean.

    The Majlis is a superlative course, the best in Dubai (by a hair) over Creek. Long, tough and fair. The Faldo is a good course, although compared to its brother it plays as more of an afterthought. We found the landscape relatively spartan and the setup to be a bit unfair. If you're playing only once, spend the extra $$ ...

    Strolling through the dizzying old streets of Deira, you don’t expect to run into an array of glittering gold and glistening gems. In the heart of the old district lays the historic Gold Souk with a renovated arched wooden roof. Browsing through this souk felt almost comical to me as merchants whispered “Gucci, Prada, Versace…” as I walked past, trying ...

    She is faded in her glory but still worth a visit if you are on the Dubai shopping circuit. Ski Dubai is a spectacle. The Harvey Nicks here is great and you won't find it elsewhere.
