I truly enjoyed my time at Ahmedia Guest House. I was there for about six nights in early November and I was so impressed with the beauty of the place and the graciousness of the staff. It is an old building that has been carefully restored. The wood doors, ceilings and furniture are lovely. The place is much prettier, even, then one can see in the photos. Must see it in person. They staff were so nice and very quick to assist me with any request. I highly recommend this place. The location is also terrific. The metro stop (Al Ras) is just about a block away (much closer then many hotels to metro stops in other parts of Dubai). The neighborhood in Deira is really great - feels very safe and lively. Not nearly as touristy as other parts of the city. Feels like a family neighborhood. I will definitely stay at Ahmedia Guest House next time I travel to the UAE. Can't wait!
I have been travelling to Dubai for last 10 years and have been staying at the same hotel... Very impressed with the level of service and friendly staff. Choice of breakfast is awesome... Earley check in system is very good without extra charges. Well done guys.
1. Really unique experience in the midst of a historical complex. The place was easy to find (taxi drivers didnt know the place but know the bastakiya complex) and within a short distance to the metro. Walking to distance to museum, old soux and to take abra ride.
2. The staffs are great.
3. Breakfast is plenty and customized (make the order the night before).
4. Room was nice. I was concerned that the guest house given its style would compromise in its comfort. Turned out the bed is decent for sleeping (not marriot soft but good for sleeping), bath is good with plenty toilettries. No problemo.
The hotel was OK for a 3 star rating. The staff were nice and helpful, the rooms were large and spacious. Some of the rooms smelt of damp and the curtains were a bit dusty, but generally the rooms were clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was also OK with a reasonable selection, including fresh fruit which was nice. At night you could hear the disco music even from the 4th floor, so for those who want a very quiet place, this is not ideal. The location of the hotel is excellent. The swimming pool was tiny, but didn't seem to put off the avid sunbathers. All in all it was good value for money.

Choose room overlooking creek. Great views watching loading of Dhows and boats going up and down creek day and night. Surprisingly quiet given hotel on main road. Facilities excellent given hotel quite old compared to others. Easy walk to souks and cross creek terminal. Excellent location.
Interesting hotel located in the center of Deira. Room was very spacious. Bed was big and comfortable. Airconditioning was very cold when needed which was good because it can get inferno hot outside. Hotel staff was very friendly, helpful and all spoke english. There are not one but two night clubs occupying the lower floors and the sound is unbelieably high. Stay only on the 4-5th floors or you will never get any sleep. I stayed on the 5th floor and never heard a noise. Taxis are near impossible to get from 12-3PM. Great shopping right outside hotel. Nassar square is about a block down from hotel and it is extremely busy 24-7. I would stay again if I stayed in Deira again. Go to Jumeira market, mall of the Emirates(you can snow ski inside mall), Dubai museum, and sailboat looking building and have dinner at the top floor restaurant. Food is good, views are spectacular and the prices are reasonable.
This is my 4th visit to Dubai so far this Year 47th in 10 years, always just for less than a week. I have stayed in many different Hotels, and been the Bar at the Regal Plaza but not had a room.
The room was spacious and very clean!
The staff and management are brilliant and provide an excellent service.
