Hand-Picked Hotel

Stay in Dubai’s historic heart at Al Seef Heritage Hotel Dubai

If culture and atmosphere are high on your holiday wish-list, Al Seef Heritage Hotel Dubai in Dubai’s maze-like old city is ideal. A true Emirati experience, you’ll have all Dubai’s shopping and nightlife on hand (should you want it), while experiencing the real city behind the glitz.

The hotel’s 190 rooms are beautifully laid out over 10 traditional bayts-style homes – giving you a sense of what life might have been like here in 1960. You’ll find authentic local décor, shuttered windows, and views over the winding souks from many of the balconies.

As you might expect, the hotel’s restaurant is also traditional. Tuck into Emirati specialities and Middle Eastern dishes, alongside some familiar British and European favourites.

Outside the hotel, the busy Al Seef area is a fascinating place to wonder. Though it was developed in 2017, its sandstone buildings, alleyways and squares feel authentically Middle Eastern. There are plenty of shops to explore, many selling traditional crafts, and a floating market on Dubai Creek. And if you feel the need for something different? A short taxi ride will take you to the city’s malls and Jumeirah Beach.

Local Area

Old Dubai is a genuinely unique destination. This was the original Dubai, and now combines original 19th century buildings with modern areas built in the same traditional style. With its narrow souks, wooden dhow boats lining Dubai Creek and delicious Emirati food, it’s a very different experience to the skyscrapers, malls and beaches of Jumeirah and Dubai Marina. Though the Al Seef area is recently developed, it really does feel authentic – you’ll certainly experience the famously warm Arabian welcome here.

The late 18th century Al Fahidi Fort, Dubai’s oldest building, is a short walk from Al Seef Heritage Hotel, and a must-visit for most. Now a museum, it tells Dubai’s story in fascinating detail.

Shopping in Old Dubai is a mix of traditional souks and modern malls. Check out the glittering gold souk and the colourful spice souk. It’s also a great place to pick up traditional crafts and souvenirs.
