This very modern and stylish hotel overlooks the dhow wharfage on Dubai Creek.
It houses the Gordon Ramsay restaurant 'Verre' as well as the bistro Glasshouse and a nice little espresso bar in the lobby.
Roof top pool with great views

Unique Qualities: Designed by Carlos Ott, famous for the Opera La Bastille in Paris and National Bank of Dubai.

Modern and minimalist boutique hotel.
A lot of metal, glass, black marble and leather.
Can be quite austere but they do use soft lighting (and candles) and gorgeous floral arrangements to lighten things up.

Corner alcove rooms have a jacuzzi in the bathroom overlooking the dhows on the creek and you can ask for a DVD player and choose DVDs from the menu.
