Unique experience, great manager and staff

Boutique, staff, location
The stay was a fantastic and unique experience. It's so much better than a standard hotel room. all the staff were great, nothing is too much trouble for them. We arrived early and left late on both occasions they arranged facilities for us to shower and rest. The location is great too, 5 mins walk to Metro station, 2 mins walk to Dubai Museum. The manager is very friendly and a great source of information. We thoroughly enjoined the stay and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who wants a great boutique hotel experience.

Unique staying experience in a boutique hotel

Location, design, staff
XVA is unique hotel in the traditional local style buildings with two courtyards decorated with many pieces of art works. The rooms are not your standard hotel room but each was different and nicely decorated. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Very accommodating for our extra requirements due to early arriving and late leaving. The manager was a great source of useful information and a pleasure to talk to. Short walk to Dubai Museum and local markets and restaurants.

A beautiful Oasis

Atmosphere, Friendly Staff and Food
I only had one day in Dubai and wanted a peaceful and more trditional alternative to the shiny towers and beach resorts of Dubai. The hotel could not do enough for me including early check in (at a half day cost but essential if you are arriving very early and want breakfast which was included. Staff were really friendly and helpful and as this is a nine room hideaway they had plenty of time to sit dwon and talk history, art, eating and sightseeing options. There were lovely courtyards and cool rooms. Really glad I stayed there.. Tips, if taking the trains get a day pass and book a ticket early to go up the Burj Kalifa
