My sister and I stayed in these self catering apartments on 2nd Feb 2011 for 3 nights. The apartments are located near a train station and Marina mall is less than 5min walk. We like the rooms because they were clean and serviced regularly. The bathroom is very small especially the bath tub. We found the hotel stuff to be friendly but they didn't do so well in being informative when asked about the transport options to various sites. The mall of Dubai is about 30min away by train and the Emirates mall is approximate 15min. The hotel is located near a very busy highway and windows are thinly lined so the noise cuts through. There is a Lebanese restaurant attached to the hotel and we found it disappointing in the menu it offers. If you make a room only booking there is an option to have breakfast at this restaurant at a cost of Dhs50 which we thought was expensive for what they offer. We decided that having a breakfast else where was the way to go. So in conclusion, the Marina view scores moderately and I would not necessarily return.

In a nutshell you can't fault this place I stayed here with my partner and 20 month old son - the staff were excellent the amenities were modern and the apartment adequate for our needs. The only downside was the price but when you consider the cost of accommodation in Dubai it was relatively cheap but not as good value as similar accommodation elsewhere in the world. Excellent for short stays whether business or pleasure. I would recommend this place if you don't need the beach!

We stayed at the Marina View Apartments from Dec 17 to Dec 27 2011 and had a really wonderful time.

After staying numerous times, with family, in Sharjah and traveling to Dubai a few times a week, this trip I really got a different feel for Dubai......a very positive different feel!!! There is everything you need and more in Dubai and the Marina View Apartments are a great place to stay to discover it! 

My husband, one-year old daughter and I stayed in a one bedroom apartment and found it very spacious and well set up for a hotel apartment. Lots of storage space, washer/dryer, microwave....etc. There is free car parking and free wifi in the room. Everyone of the staff members we encountered always made us feel welcome and offered us help whenever they could...whether that be carrying the shopping from the car, providing extra towels or chasing after our daughter!!

The apartment is just a 5 min walk from the marina where you can find great restaurants, cafes and is a lovely place to take a stroll. It is also a 5 min walk from Marina Mall which, to be honest, we did not visit....don't know why, just did not seem tempted. The Jumeirah Beach Residences(JBR) are a 10-15 min walk or a 3 min drive away (free car parking) There you have a plethora of shops, cafes, restaurants all on a lovely strip which runs parallel with the beach. If you are driving, Emirates Mall is a 10-15 min drive and Dubai Mall/Burj Khalifa is 20-25 min drive away. The Marina Metro station is just a 3-5 min walk and connects you to most places in Duabi.

The hotel is situated just off Sheik Zayed Road (a major highway) so the traffic noise is very noticeable in the apartments. Saying that, the location makes it incredibly easy to commute to all the major attractions mentioned above so if you can live with the noise then there are really no other problems. Jumeirah Road runs parallel to Sheik Zayed Road and is a 'calmer' road to drive on!! On this strip you will find access to the Palm Jumeirah (more exciting from a birds eye view!), Burj Al Arab, Wild Wadi Water Park and lots of public beaches, restaurants, cafes and supermarkets.

We found the food of a very high standard...even the mall outlets were great. Be a daredevil and try something a bit different....go for Iranian food or try some Lebanese. Mentioning one Lebanese restaurant, which I will review next, Wafi Gourmet at Dubai Mall.....mmmmmmmm delicious! Great location, next to the Fountains and great food.

All in all a holiday to remember for all the right reasons, particularly the accommodation.

NOTE: if driving from the airport head towards E11 towards Dubai. keep on the E11 and you will then start to see signs for Abu Dhabi, keep an eye on the exits ( they are not very well sign posted and just seem to come upon you!) you need to take exit 32 and head for the Marina. I checked google maps before we arrived and it is really not clear. If you need help please don't hesitate to contact me for directions.

Stayed 5 nights in a one bedroom apartment on the 7th floor.

Apartment itself excellent – very spacious with great amenities including a/c, fridge/freezer, washing machine, microwave/ cooker, safe and flat screen TV in both living room and bedroom. Also, pleasantly surprised to find as well as one large bathroom with great power shower another separate toilet/wash basin off living area. The décor was plain, simple and perhaps not to everyone’s taste but certainly didn’t detract anything for us.

Arriving very early in darkness we initially thought that location poor (and this not helped with reception strangely unable to provide map of hotel and surrounding area to provide us with bearings which would have been helpful). However, the hotel is within an easy 10 minute walk of the public Jumeirah beach and also the Marina and its restaurants as well as several small supermarkets. Be this as it may, it’s worth pointing out that the hotel is surrounded by a very busy road on the one side and skyscrapers both completed and in building progress and cranes on the other. And whilst there was technically a (very partial) view of the marina from our apartment, with signs of building work to come in front of the only stretch of marina we could see it’s debatable whether the hotel will be able to legitimately call itself by its existing name for much longer!

The pool, whilst not large and certainly not with a great view, is pleasant
enough for a few hours relaxation and the service, with complimentary towels etc good.

The overall service at the hotel we found to be a bit hit and miss to be honest ranging from the very helpful Olga on reception to some employees who seemed either indifferent or just so inexperienced as not to understand or be able to help. In fairness I should point out that a problem with our room was dealt with promptly and personally by the manager.

In summary, despite some issues and clear room for improvement, I would still maintain that this accommodation is worthy of further consideration as it ultimately offers very spacious, clean, and high quality apartments in a reasonable location for a fraction of the cost of a beach side hotel.

Room Tip: Request a corner apartment as far away as possible from the busy road. Eight Star hypermarket within easy walk and very reasonably priced.
