    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.

    Amazing view”

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Location, staff,view

    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.

    Location, Service

    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.
