Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Riviera
Baniyas Rd., Deira, Dubai, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
The Riviera might be a little bit old fashioned, but some would argue that's part of its charm. For those who want to escape all the glitz of shiny new Dubai, and instead meander the souks and the colorful creekside area, this is perfect. Rooms are large and furnished solidly, and many have balconies overlooking the bustling mouth of Dubai Creek. There are two basic on-site restaurants, but it's easy to explore the surrounding area's cheap ethnic food, or take a water taxi, abra, bus, or metro–-all within walking distance–-to explore other parts of Dubai.
