                    Bespoke customer service at a beautiful heritage home”

                    I'm so glad I booked my last stay in Dubai at this lovely heritage home on 26 April 2019. It is within walking distance to the Al Ghubaiba Bus Station to Abu Dhabi and Carrefour Hypermart! The rooms are spacious with cold-AC and are immaculately decorated and clean. All morning and night shift staff are prompt, professional and courteous. I want to give a special thanks to Nathan (night shift staff) for helping me with my luggage down to the nearest Metro station--this is what I call bespoke customer service! I will return to this lovely guesthouse in my next trip Dubai. Thank you for making my stay memorable =)

                    Amazing place!”

                    Amazing heritage guest house. Perfectly located, 150 m. from metro, easy to reach from airport with luggage. Also easy to reach all the city attractions by metro as well, including Dubai Mall and JBR beach. Area is quiet, it was awesome to walk around in the morning. The guest house is located right at the bank of the Creek (although no rooms with river view I think). Near there is a boat station where you can go to the other side for just 1 Dirham. What I really liked, was the interior: traditional room style, beautiful restaurant with nice jars and carpets. In the room there was supply of bottled water as well as tea/coffee making facilities (mini-bar is charged). Just awesome breakfasts! Every day you fill the form where you select what you wish and it is cooked for you in the morning. Very tasty and lovingly-made. My special thanks to the lady at the front desk for amazing customer service and help with everything I needed. Recommend the guest house.

                    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.

                    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.

                    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.

                    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.

                    Short stay”

                    Atmospheric guesthouse on the Creek with Metro station and taxi rank 200m away but no closer access for cars which may be important if lots of luggage and very hot. The abra station to the gold and spice souks is equidistant. Staff very pleasant. Can't comment on breakfast as not included and restaurant not open. Everything worked in the room (Mumtaz) and although not immaculately decorated perfectly fine. Slightly curious that the room was not cleaned or made up in my three night stay.

                    heritage lovers you will love it”

                    very convenient location, excellent rooms and surroundings and good breakfasts. We have 101 and 102 and we had a private terrace outside even. Very very nice experience. Beddings towels are very clean. Some walls are a little bit old but does not matter, generally is nice. Taxi to hotel at mid-night is 60 diram. Dont know why, may be from airport meter starts at 30 diram?? Otherwise it is cheap taxi fare. But best is to print the map in advance for the taxi driver so that they drop you at the right place. The place where taxi drop me off in the first place was wrong and the taxi driver went further until he hit a grass lawn, I barely could see the neon light words "Banjeel guest house" but luckily I was not wrong. It is just one two min walk, past a metro exit and I was there. So map on their web site is important. Print out in advance. Staff is minimal but helpful. English is no problem in this hotel. You can also use the facitlties at their sisters hotels where there are spa, nice restaurents etc. Generally I highly recommended. Right outside the guesthouse, there is 1 dirum fare for boat which takes you to other side of the river where there are lots to see. Nice experience. Also someone told me right next to the guesthouse is the bus station where takes you to the capital city and a lot more places. I did not go, not enough time, but other people at the guest house went. All said excellence experience with the hote.. Good deal, best deal!!!

                    Absolutely amazing”

                    A 2 minute walk from the bus and train station, it took us no time to explore Dubai. The facilities were amazing, clean, beautiful. The staff were beyond helpful, I would definitely recommend this place to anyone, and will be staying here again!
