We booked this apartment because of the price. It was quite good value for money but there was a little lack of knowledge in the central reservation staff.More on that later.
The rooms were very clean and came with a small kitchenette which made life easy for us as there was no breakfast available in the hotel itself. The bathroom had a very nice shower.
The bell desk staff were extremely helpful and only too ready to hail a taxi or bring the bags up etc.
There is grocery store just round the corner which sold basic grocery items.
The Mall of Emirates was within walking distance, but with the heat being what it is, we would only take a cab to get there. It was easy enough to get a cab with only a couple of minutes wait.
The decor was very typical of the region but it was basic and clean.
Now on to my peeves.
In this day of the internet, it is hard to manage without being constantly in touch with the world. My husband had business to attend to as well. To make sure, I called their central reservations to check if there had wireless connectivity in the rooms or if it was via a wire. They specifically told me that they had WiFi in the room. Only after that did we bring the ipad instead of a regular laptop. After checking in we were informed that there was no wireless in the room. It was quite disappointing.
Secondly, we had requested for a late check out while making the reservation itself, but that instruction was also not passed down. Even after reconfirming this on check in, they did not make a note of this and on the day of check out, it ended being a small issue which was resolved quite easily but an issue nonetheless.
There was enough on the television channels to keep us up to date.
Overall it was a comfortable stay in a clean and well equipped room.
