Pros: Value for money. Wide selection of food at the breakfast buffet not to be miss. Bus stop a few steps from the hotel and the Dubai Metro Station 200m behind it. Attentive, courteous STAFF. Thank you Ms. Digna for the UPGRADE really appreciated. Beautiful view by the creek especially at night. Overall We enjoy the stay!!! Highly recommended.
Best service provided!”
Booked for 14 days and it was worth the money. Riviera hotel got a high rating in Agoda and the reviews didn’t lie. Location wise it’s good; nearest train station is only 2-3 minutes walk from the hotel. I’d prefer a location near Al Rigga but Baniyas is good enough. Our room was spacious for 3 persons and it’s cleaned daily. The furnitures are a bit old but still in good condition. But what I really appreciate about this hotel is the staff! Everyone is pleasant and respectful. They’d great you, open doors for you, and even say thank you when it’s you who asked for a favor. Our group felt special with their treatment. I would definity book this hotel again. Would also recommend this to friends.
Great location, worth it to pay the extra for the Creekside view. Wonderful breakfasts, friendly, helpful staff. Close to the Metro which is easy to negotiate, close to the abra boats crossing the creek which is worth it just for the experience. Close to a number of sooks. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We arrived at the hotel at 8:30am and although check in was only 3 pm, an upgraded room was made available for us by 9am ( we booked souk view but were given creek view room). The bathroom was very spacious , the room had enough space for us and our bags. The room has a balcony overlooking the creek. The view of the creek was amazing during the morning and night . Breakfast was good with a big variety. It catered more for the Chinese , but we enjoyed the different items during our 2 day stay. Location of the hotel was good. It was walking distance to the gold souk and Naif area which is where we needed to be.
4 Star Rating hotel with 5 Star Service. Bravo!!! Highly recommended. ”
I really enjoyed my stay in this hotel. Staffs are polite, good location of the hotel, just 5 minute walking distance away from the Bayanis Sq station. 10 minutes walk to the old souk attractions, e.g. Gold Souk, Spice Souk, and the jetty to cross the river. Food was great, with variety of selections for the breakfast buffet. Highly recommended.
Great place to stay either for solo or family”
Room was spacious and bathroom was big and very clean. I was given a room facing the creek, it was nice. There was also a separate living room. Free internet access. Few minutes walk to Banyas Train Station. Shopping is just behind the hotel area.
Perfect place to stay in Dubai”
this was the perfect place to stay in dubai. close to metro, walking distance, and also close to the creek and the boats to cross to bur dubai. "all" the souks in walking distance, gold, spice, clothes etc
Great location, though newly renovated, clean and big room, restaurants around like Turkish, etc.”
Nice view of the creek from the balcony, near Metro only 5 mins away, more stores around, hotel staff are friendly and helpful, breakfast should improve, would recommend to relatives and friends. Overall, we had a pleasant stay.
Excellent hotel ”
Lovely location. Creek view room excellent. Service and staff attitude outstanding. Very good breakfast with wide choice and variety. Value for money. But no pool. Restaurant manager Hashim is very good. So is Shafik in front desk. Will definitely stay when visit Dubai again.
A favourite hotel”
Always stay at this hotel even though there are so many options. The hotel is near the Creek and the Gold Souk is walking distance. A Big Bus stop is across the road. Buffet breakfast is varied and plentiful. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Facilities are good. The place has old world charm and feels homey. Thanks
Hotel close to the souks”
The Riviera Hotel via AGODA were very accommodating and flexible with my reservation. I had an early morning check in and flew out the same evening. The Hotel were able to provide me with the room and breakfast which was really nice
Everything was good, but next to my room was new building and construction process continue during the night, that element made me crazy. Hotel management block me 400 AED for 45 days, that is not normal in my opinion. I will book other hotels in future.
Very nice hotel good looking
Nice hotel ”
Nice hotel with excellent staff. It’s a very old property but decently managed and renovated properly. The only draw back is no parking in the hotel. Staff always ready to help.
In quieter more traditional part of city. Staff very helpful. Breakfast amazing.”
Bus stop ourside of door. Dhow restaurants just across road. Shuttle (fee) picked me up and dropped me to airport after midnight. Check prices before booking tours at desk. Great stay would return again. Older style hotel but with character.
Situated in the old town of Dubai .. The horel was spotless and the staff friendly polite and couldn't do enough for you .. Hop on hop off bus opposite.. Price fantastic .. Doesn't have a pool but the hotel is immaculate .. Buffet breakfast huge variety
Superb staff,great location.”
Although not one of the mega flashy hotels in dubai this hotel offers a great location at a reasonable price for dubai. The room was so comfortable and roomy. The buffet breakfast was one of the best we have had and after many months travelling was a welcomed splurge not to have to battle the heat and language differences but be spoilt with an amazing breakfast choice. They cate efor all nationalities food wise with an extensive array. The reception was very helpful with information of how to get around and places to see although there is little in the way of printed matter available in the hotel for tourist information. So bring a good map with you and a guide book. We booked a desert safari through the hotel. More expensive than booking on line but we were after convenience at this stage. The staff handled it all effortlessly. Tip. Th strains are unbelievable packed so a taxi to the airport is worth considering for ease of mind.
Nice low frills hotel, close to transport links”
Stayed for a 3 days and needed to be on the Deira side of the Creek, yet close to the fun stuff in Dubai. Hotel doesn't disappoint, staff are helpful and try hard, but don't speak the best English. Can't be bettered for price of stay.
Good location to explore the Gold Souk and old tow”
Not too far from Dubai Airport and in a good location to the old town and the gold souk. Had a nice room with Creek view, but it was loud from the main road. We could hear the traffic although the windows were closed. The view over the creek was beautiful but I personally would prefer a room to the back of the hotel. Service and breakfast was good also. Very friendly staff throughout the hotel.
