The Crowne Plaza Dubai Deira is a relatively luxurious hotel in a downtrodden part of town. The rooms are a tad old-fashioned but comfortable, but the suites leave a little to be desired.
Although the hotel is pleasant, its location lends itself more to business travellers than visitors in search of sun and sand. However, Deira is an interesting location for those after more than an tan, as the spice, textile and gold souks are all nearby. The facilities here are modern and in good condition, but the rates are quite expensive for this part of town, considering the few facilities on offer.
