This was such a charming hotel. The rooms are distributed across several buildings in the Al Seef heritage area, so that you always feel like coming and going from your own apartments within an old town. The rooms and general decor are furnished in an industrial chic style, almost like a classy steampunk look, which I adored. ||Because of the location, you're surrounded by shops in a bazaar-like setting, which is perfect for souvenir shopping. A short walk takes you to the hotel restaurant which has a fabulous breakfast buffet, and which is connected to the reception building out of which you are at the small roundabout where you can get taxis to go sightseeing elsewhere. ||In the other direction, you can walk across the bazaar towards more restaurants, and eventually at the far end you can cross to the Al Fahidi historical neighbourhood, and where you can take a ferry to cross to Deira where the spice and gold markets are.||If you don't mind walking in the heat, it is also kind of walkable to the Burjuman metro station.

Al seef heritage hotel is nestled amidst the charming embrace of Arabic traditional architecture, this hotel exudes a warm, inviting ambiance that feels just like home in the middle of a Souk. From the moment you step through its doors, you're enveloped in a sense of heritage and comfort. The design seamlessly blends historical elements with modern amenities, offering a unique experience for guests seeking both authenticity and convenience. The cozy rooms, adorned with cultural accents, evoke a sense of tranquility, while the common areas encourage relaxation and socialising and more spacious. The staff's genuine hospitality adds a personal touch, making your stay not just a visit, but a memorable journey into the heart of tradition and homeliness. We have had 5 nights stay with breakfast and dinner. There is a buggy service to your room as it’s at the corner of the souk and away from the reception. Breakfast cafe is next to the reception building. I’m glad about the tasty dinner with Arabic night option on weekends. While our stay was delightful overall, we were a bit disappointed with the breakfast offerings. Unfortunately, there was a lack of Middle Eastern variety in the food selection, which would have been a wonderful addition to complement the traditional atmosphere of the hotel. We hoped to experience a taste of local flavors and cuisines, especially during breakfast, to further enhance our cultural immersion. Adding some Arabic dishes to the breakfast spread could greatly enrich the experience for guests seeking a more diverse culinary adventure. Otherwise excellent stay for experiencing heritage style vacation.
