                  Old World Charm
                  In the midst of all the modern high rises is a guesthouse full of old world charm. Boasting of a courtyard, a restaurant and a nice rooftop deck with a beautiful view of the creek. The staff was efficient, friendly and very willing to help. Breakfast was nothing spectacular but satisfying. We were served eggs, baked beans, beef bacon cooked quite nicely and chicken sausages with jam and toast. A car can’t get you to its doorstep because it is located inside a heritage village. It is, however, by the creek and is very near the boatyard and a stone’s throw away from the Al Ghubaiba Metro Station and Carrefour. Medium size rooms but very dark. We tried to open the shades but the window opens to a walkway and anyone passing through can see through the window. The bed (looks like an antique), although comfortable, seemed quite fragile. It creaks at every move. Overall, it is a lovely guesthouse in an excellent location.

                  Authentic stay in old town
                  I turned up at Barjeel but was directed to their sister location in river position not far away. Staff were very helpful. Location is excellent Note: this is not resort acco.modation, but an authentic experience!

                  Traditional Dubai - away from the skyscrapers
                  The hotel is in a great location - approximately 150 meters to the nearest train station (Metro Green Line - Station 24), and immediately outside the front door is Dubai Creek promenade. A short walk away is the Bur Dubai Abra Dock where you can take a traditional dowh (wooden boat) across the river (cost Dh1 per person) to explore the Spice, Gold & Perfume Souks of Deira. There is also an enormous Carrefour Supermarket nearby - extremely handy for stocking up on essential supplies, as well as bottled water and snacks. The rooms are very nicely decorated, but the lighting is very very dull, so don't expect to see clearly (good luck ladies with applying your make-up). Breakfast is adequate. We dined once during the evening and while the taste of the food was lovely, the meals we received were different to what was described on the menu. Also the quantity of food was lacking. One very frustrating aspect we found during our stay was that Reception was hardly ever manned. The hotel asks that you drop your key at Reception when leaving for the day, however each morning we had to search to find a member of staff to leave it with, and then when returning in the afternoon/early evening, we usually had to search again for a member of staff in order to get our key and gain access to our room. Not a huge issue for us, but some people may find this annoying. Overall, we enjoyed our stay - but we don't like the massive manufactured hotels - instead much preferring boutique properties.

                  Great guesthouse in heritage area of Dubai
                  The Barjeel is an 8 dirham ride on the metro from the airport. When you emerge from the metro station (could be exit 4, I can't remember, look for the water icon as the guesthouse is on the creek), the Barjeel will be right in front of you. It has nine rooms and is a repurposed Arabic house with a lovely courtyard in the middle. The walls are thick, the doors are heavy, the lock and key system not to be missed. Breakfast is included. WiFi available. Staff is kind and helpful, but not always in the reception area, so if you phone be prepared to let the phone ring a while. Room has AC. Lighting is dim, so if you want to read in bed, bring a headlamp. Guesthouse is on the creek, so there's lots to watch. I loved staying here on a pleasure plus business trip.

                  Second visit
                  Came back after a great stay last year, room just as before but a little tired but unfortunately there was a lot of redevelopment of the area including a building site next door about 6 feet away which caused a lot of dust and dirt around the guest house which they did try to clean but its just like dusting your house while a builder is knocking down a wall. The whole Heritage centre area was closed off and no river side walk. Will return when work is finished as I love the location.

                  The feel of history...
                  Unique room.. lock to excess into the room, not the scanning key card type.. The environmental surrounding are cosy with a nice view of the river & with a few cutie cats around to accompany you. Breakfast are simple but with the touch of homely feeling..

                  Enjoyed the heritage feel of Barjeel
                  Barjeel is away from all the glitz of the Marina District in a heritage area. Museums & markets close by. We loved the location. Took Metro from airport. Beaches & shopping malls are just a Metro ride away if you are interested in that.
