        Great boutique hotel in the historic and creative part of Dubai. Would highly recommend if you are looking to experience the real Dubai. Absolutely loved this place. The only small negative was that staff were very friendly but sometimes lacked in attention to detail.

        XVA Art Hotel is a unique boutique hotel with a special feel.”
        We loved our stay. Even though we arrived at 1.30am are we welcomed & helped to our room straight away. We loved our room, it was the mirror room, all the little touches were perfect. The XVA has those special touches everywhere from the tree that grows in the middle of the dining room that has glass ornaments hanging from it to the artworks all around & the Gallery/shop. Being in the old district it has narrow alleys winding here & there with a special feel all around. The staff were all professional & so friendly. We had many great conversations. Food delicious must try Mint Lemonade & Sweet potato fries. Breaky muesli with fresh yogurt was my breakfast choice. We would highly recommend & would stay again.

        XVA staff are courteous & hospitable”
        Staying in XVA is a treat. It’s a hidden gem 💎 in Al Fahidi. Art and creative enthusiasts will delighted to find this place. It’s actually for everyone. Breakfast is good however it needs daily variety Can’t have the same menu three days in a row. Lemonade is a must try very refreshing. Joy, Bong, Brendon and other staff names I don’t know are friendly & hospitable. They go out of their way to help out the guest. Moses is special deluxe, knowledgeable & corteous. He even gave me lessons 101 how to buy Gold... Thank you 🙏 everyone for making me feel home away from home. Highly appreciated. Sue from New Jersey USA 🇺🇸

        Better Than Described”
        All the reviews were true. It is spectacular, and if I had known better, I would have saved my money on all the touristy things and just stayed on the grounds the entire time I was there. Don't buy the Big Bus Tour. For less than 12 AED, you can take a taxi from Old Dubai Museum (walking distance), to Old Souk (clothing), take a water taxi for 1 AED (2 roundtrip) to the other side of the Creek, see the Spice Souk or Dhow cruise. Take the city bus to Dubai Mall for 3 AED. Go to the restaurant almost at the top of Burj Kalifa. Get a drink for 3 AED and see the entire city. There, you have had your City tour. With the 150 AED I saved you, get a day pass to a spa/beach from a local hotel. By bus or taxi, you still have a full 3 days of experiences, but under 200 AED. For taxis, tell them to drop you off at the Al Fahidi Historical Neighborhood, or Al Fahidi Roundabout. The hotel is in the middle of the neighborhood and must be accessed by foot. You're Welcome!

        Unusual hotel for Dubai”
        If you want a change from the typical UAE high rise hotels, this is the place for you! It is around a 5-10 minute walk from Al Fahidi Metro Station, heading towards the Creek. I have attached a map to show the exact location which is taken from the hotel's own leaflet. You can enter the hotel from a number of entrances, but reception is just inside the door guarded by two large steel balls. Other entrances take you to the cafe or gallery, but all are connected and the staff will show you where to go. My room (4) was quite small, but big enough for me. You enter through a double wooden door secured by a padlock. The ceiling is quite high with a fan if you don't want to use the AC. The bed was comfortable with plump pillows. The bathroom was fine, but hot water is provided by a water heater that needs to be put on at least 10 minutes before a shower. With that in mind, the shower's hot water lasted just 5 minutes before becoming luke warm. Body wash and shampoo are provided. A nice touch

        A calm and quiet low rise haven out with the hustle and bustle of Dubai yet in its heart. A contrary hotel to the new Dubai with tree filled cloistered courtyards, rooftop loungers and easy access to delicious food and drink. A home.
