              Very happy with Orient bbstaff was excellent. Moses andxLorena took very good care of us. Orient is very well situated for Bur Dubai. Seconds from busy streets but very quiet inside the historical village. Close to Dubai Museum andAl Ghubaiba bus and metro.

              Great Out of the Way Spot”
              The Butlers at the Orient Guest House were very helpful both in terms of helping me find places, and helping me find a cheap way to do what I wanted to do. The Guest House has great atmosphere, but nowhere to really hang out, other than your room, when it's too hot to be outside. You can go down the street to the Arabian Hotel which is part of their group so that is a plus. Location wise, it's right on the edges of the Al Fahidi Historic District and within a couple of blocks of the Dubai Museum and the Old Souk so it's a great place to be if you want to walk around those areas, but it's a bit removed from everything else. Overall great stay.

              Place itself was great, nice comfy bed, decent sized room, large bathroom, mini bar, safe, breakfast was continental/middle eastern and was good. The only downside was location. Yes it is a close walk to the metro stations, but everything we ended up wanting to go to was a 30 min Uber away. My only con. Enter from the main road as to not get lost.

              Dowdy and down at heel”
              Nothing interesting or comfortable about this place. Dark with old and slightly shabby furnishings. The courtyard which had been touted as a comfortable place to relax had six tables all with hard chairs merely to service breakfast. Breakfast itself was disappointing and reliant on bread and cake, eggs of some sort available though cooked before 07:00 when stye meal starts so if you have a late breakfast it's all well past it's best. It's all self service, buffet style. The bath leaked water all over the bathroom floor and though I was offered a change of room, I believed the maintainence crew would sort it when they came the next day. I'm told they came twice but the problem remained. I took to not emptying the bath as the plug was not an exact fit and allowed the water to drain out overnight without flooding. The reception staff seemed more interested in talking on the phone, they were forever in the middle of a phone conversation and one had to hang around waiting to be dealt with. My room was large, the bed comfortable but the bed hangings were shabby and needed a wash. I was really disappointed in it. I was expecting something lovely...it wasn't but hell's teeth....it is very expensive for a dowdy, down at heel bed and breakfast

              Gem in the City”
              1. Away from the city. Nestled right in the famed Al Bastakiya area. 2. Traditional courtyards 3. Near eateries
              I really liked the location. I'm a sucker for traditional, quaint neighbourhoods, so this was perfect. Although I subsequently moved to a more expensive hotel in the city that had a spectacular view of the Burj Khalifa, I still missed this place. Coming from Singapore, I am not awed by skyscrapers. The room was not brightly lit. I am not sure if this was part of the ambience but it was quite impractical. Room was also very squeezy! I found the old school lock very cumbersome too. Perhaps, to engage the hotel guests further, the hotel could have held activities in the courtyard. It's a beautiful establishment but somehow not exploited enough.
