Average convenient Hotel Jun 25, 2005
The first time I got stuck in Dubai, I say 'stuck' because it was not planned, was in 2005 on my way to Tanzania. Since I was unprepared to layover , my bag was in lock-up at the airport, and I was still wearing my same outfit from Shanghai.

The hotel was right in the heart of the souq area where there are more internationals than locals. So, I decided to give them a call from the airport to check on a room. The first thing they asked me was what was my nationality. Hmmmmmm.... why would they care. I told them, USA. Then , was I alone. Hmmmmmmmmm... WAS the Middle East, right? Then , I thought, ok, they're wondering if I was there for 'business' ! Then, I told them my age, and made believers over the phone with them!

As I approached the stairs leading up to the main reception area, I noticed it was going to be interesting. Walls peeling of paint, winding, several levels to go up., but made it to reception. Immediately, I noticed the same thing I observe in places like my little hotels in Delhi, lots and lots of small business types , ladies from Ukraine, central Asia, and African countries, there to buy.

The room was a room, and when you are very tired (at least I) don't care about a tv or even getting up for an egg or even bread and jam so those 'amenities' I have no recollection of.

The best thing about the City Gold Hotel, was the view!! looking down at the GOLD SOUQ! a stone throw's away. You bet...I was down there in a flash! bought a few things, of course..but you can easily be just bewildered by all the yellow.

FOOD: all over there are so many little Indian Pakistan eateries. And, you can find enough places for water, snacks to satisfy.
