The location of the Barjeel Heritage Guest House was perfect. It was very close to the Al Ghubaiba Metro station and the guest house restaurant faced Dubai Creek. I liked the room's heritage features.
Note: I originally booked a night at the Orient Guest House. However, just before I left New Zealand I was told that the Orient Guest House was to be closed for renovations so I was given the option of changing to the Barjeel Heritage Guest House. I chose this option but I then received communications from the Orient Guest House which led to considerable confusion and uncertainty as to where I was going to be staying in Dubai. This was resolved by an email exchange. On arrival at the Barjeel Heritage Guest House I paid extra to book in early on such a hot day and was shown to my room. The communication from staff could be improved. I was not told where the restaurant was for breakfast nor was it made clear that I could use the swimming pool etc at another company owned hotel nearby.
I was able to keep my luggage for free before and after checking in. One of the receptionist, Veronica, gave me a great customer service to have me as a guest.
Great stay at the Orient guesthouse. The service was excellent, very nice staff. Hearty breakfast. Loved the oriental feel. This is a perfect location if you want to spend time in the old Dubai and this is 10 min walk from the metro station Al Fahidi.
The room was a bit dark. Poor Communication by email before arrival but it got better as we got closer to the arrival date.
Everything is perfect from in and outside of the guesthouse. The Location is indeed great as it's very close in Souk Market, Abra Boat Terminal (Dhow Cruise Dinner in Creek is very convenient) and 10 Minutes away from Al Fahidi Metro Station. Al Seef is very close too but we weren't able to visit the place it was hell hot weather (05 - 08 June 2019). My partner and I enjoyed having coffee late at night in the terrace just in front of our room and the Coffeeshop outside the Guesthouse looks gorgeous though we didn't have a chance to have coffee there and Dubai Museum is only 5 minutes away too. Staff are very accommodating especially during this hot weather, they gave us 2 buckets of ice cold water for shower and I love it!
No negative comments since this is a perfect place for people who wants to experience a different staycation. Maybe the only downside is the WEATHER! we visited Dubai during Hot Season so the water from the shower is like from the kettle.
I loved the location. The place is charming and quiet. The staff is friendly and available.
