This property does not lack charm. XVA Art Hotel is located in the historical Bastakiya area away from the Pharaonic constructions that characterise the centre of Dubai. The neighbours are superb art galleries, craft shops, and lively souks.
Warmly lit by small traditional lamps, 14 rooms have been decorated in a Moroccan style by local artists. There is also a vegetarian café housed in a pleasant patio, a pretty, chic, ethnic handicraft shop, and an art gallery with colourful avant-garde works, primarily from artists of the Arab world and Iran.
Give yourself a break, far from the frenetic activity of the city, and relax in one of the rocking chairs located on the roof terrace, sign up for a yoga class, or enjoy a film in the tree-lined courtyard. Compared to the high prices prevalent in Dubai, the rates of this hotel are especially affordable.
