Chic, old-Dubai style guest house - highly recomme
I was so glad that I stumbled on this place and spent two nights here. This is a chic, old-Dubai style guest house that is a stone throw's from Dubai Museum and the Textile souk. It is located in the Al Fahidi Historic District. I had no regrets at all booking the place. Hot showers and working air-conditioning, with a very comfortable bed. THe breakfast was buffet styel and more than sufficient. The price - it was a very good deal - well worth the money. To top it off, the staff were excellent and very accomodating to my requests. My friend and I came in at 5am and they accomodated us in the Majlis (a room for us to rest) and even agreed to change my friend's breakfast to the first day. He entertained my many other queries as well and was so very patient - thank you so much Patric! The lady at the reception (Lorena) was also great and very helpful! The hotel has no gym and pool but you can head over to their parent hotel the Arabian Courtyard Hotel where you can use their facilities free of charge. I would not hesitate to stay at the Orient Guest House again if I return to Dubai and I highly recommend this place to anyone who want to explore a different side of Dubai.

Lovely accommodations and friendly owner
Lovely inn in a beautiful old village. The accommodations were much nicer than expected given how rustic the rest of the town was. The owner was very kind and hospitable, serving coffee and dates upon arrival (a true Omani tradition). Dinner and breakfast were delicious and made my the owner's family next door. We even got a tour of the family home and plantation the following morning. Will definitely stay here again next time we go to Oman!

Old fashioned stay
The TV did not work and overall I thought it was not rated appropriately. Breakfast was marginal - although the staff were friendly and obliging.

Escape hyper modern Dubai to enjoy its history
Enjoy a unique historic experience in a hyper modern city. Great place to stay, and convenient location. True, many cab drivers do not know the Orient Guest House, but my airport cab driver just had to call to get specific directions. Google Maps also knows where the hotel is and can be helpful for cab drivers. The guest house is located inside the Al Fahidi Historical District, very close the river. While you can see signage for Orient Guest House from the road, you do have to walk about 75 meters to get into the courtyard of the guest house where you check in. When I departed and knew the area, I just walked an easy 10 minutes to the Al Fahidi Metro station and went to the airport for just AED 8. The taxi from the airport cost me AED 65. When you stay here, you'll know you're in the Arab world - this is definitely not an ordinary, modern, personality-free hotel that exists in any city or country. Room was comfortable with old world Arab furniture, the door was a double wood door with a giant pirate chest looking paddle lock. The breakfast was tasty with some Arabic offerings in addition to the usual scrambled eggs. Very friendly staff.

A great find
This hotel is in a great location for exploring Dubai. It is located in the Al Fahidi historical area - an interesting place containing, amongst other things, some enticing doorways that lead into wonderful art and cultural exhibitions. It is also a very easy walk to the Al Fahido Metro Station, the Dubai museum, local markets and the small ferry boats over the river to the fascinating markets and souks. The hotel was QUIET, well air-conditioned, clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. This place is great value for money.
