Fodor's Expert Review XVA Art Hotel
Al Fahidi Neighborhood, Bur Dubai, Dubai, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Dubai's first boutique hotel still has a faithful following of on-trend and artsy guests. Housed in a century-old mansion in the old creekside Fahidi district, the property has just 14 unique and quirky rooms set around two intimate courtyards. Each room is individually designed by local professionals and personalized by local art. Within the complex is one of the hippest galleries in the city, which hosts prestigious exhibitions of avant-garde arts, film festivals, and product launches throughout the year. XVA also has a cool courtyard café that serves light and traditional Arab fare, and a fabulous cup of Turkish coffee. Note, no alcohol is served.
- well-priced single rooms
- in the center of a cultural district and within the art scene
