Fabulous little boutique hotel in Bur Dubai

Small size, decor, comfortable rooms
I absolutely love XVA, I stay here every time I'm in Dubai. It only has 14 rooms, a great little courtyard cafe, small gallery and very cozy Bedouin-style and artsy decorated rooms. It's in the historic/tourist village which is quite pleasant, and central. Staff are great. My ONLY complaint is the horrendous internet connections; it's off/on and slow every time I'm there. Highly recommend management to sort this out to give it a 100% rating. Otherwise, great little place.

Must Stay

Location, Room, Ambiance.
The hotel is perfectly located in the Bastakiya quarters of Bur Dubai. A perfect location... just a minute from the creekside, Museums, Galleries and Abra crossings. The metro is an easy 10 minute walk for access to the "otherside" of Dubai. The room were amazing with a great Arabian feel and a roof top lounge/chill out area. The staff were also so friendly and helpful. I definitely would stay here again and recommend it to everyone. Thank you XVA.

Best in old city area of Dubai

location, price, staff
this hostel just located in a historical art area, and itself is also a art gallery,(personally I feel the show during my stay were a little scary)15 minutes walk from the subway. And I liked very much their staff, especially the man and women who take care of the breakfast.
