Lovely beautiful Hotel for a Relaxing trip
It is a very nice hotel with a friendly accommodating manager and staff. Very quiet place where you can feel the history of Dubai and the old houses in Dubai just by staying in it. Nice location close to museums and also shopping area and its few minutes walk from the metro. I highly recommend this place and I will definitely stay there again during my next trip to Dubai. Also a very breakfast and polite staff. The rooms are nicely furnished and overall I definitely recommend this hotel for the people who like to see the history of this city plus seeing Dubai today. Special thanks to the manager and the staff for their wonderful service!

Good location--disorganized service
Our room was not ready more than 1 hour past checkin. As a result, we could not freshen up before our burj khalifa reservations. In addition, staff initially refused MFA card as form of identification. This level of professionalism is below what we have experiened at other Dubai hotels.

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.
