My boyfriend and I recently spent two nights at the Torch on the way back from travelling round Thailand, as we wanted to break up the journey home, back to the UK.
After a long flight through the night I was pleased too find two members of the concierge team waiting for us in reception as previously arranged. They were both very welcoming and helped with our bags and showed us up to our apartment. We were immediately impressed with the size and cleanliness of the apartment. The apartment was supplied with everything we needed for our stay and Edelyn showed us the safe and how to work the WIFI etc (which was free of charge) and was on hand to answer any other questions we had.
The apartment was simply furnished but looked very new with flat screen tv and modern kitching fittings. The lounge area and bedrrom had stunning views across the sea with floor to ceiling windows so the view was pretty amazing! The bathroom was large with a bath and two showers and fitted with all modern fixtures etc. We had two excellent nights sleep with no noise from outside or other rooms and the blinds blocked out the light completely which was great.
The whole building was very impressive and mantained to a high standard. Although we didnt use the pool as the Weather wasnt great we did go and have a look and it was clean and well kept with stunning views across the Marina. My boyfriend used the gym one morning which i believe was only small but had all the usual equipment supplied and he had no problems getting on any of the machines.
The Marina was a lovely area to stay with ample choice of restaurants catering for all tastes and not as expensive as we initially anticipated, which was a welcome suprise. All the amenties of the Marina were within a 3-5minute walk and there was a mini market right at the bottom of the building just round the corner from the main entrance which was very convenient for drinks etc for the room. There was always plenty of taxis right outside the buidling but we opted to take the metro other than for the journey back to the airport.
The metro station was a 10min walk away from the Torch straight up the main road so was straight forward to find. We found the metro really easy to use and incredibly cheap.
If we return to Dubai we would have no hesitation in staying at the Torch, the booking process was was very straightforward with Melissa & Cassandra at Select property.
Thank you for a very enjoyable stay.
