Comfortable apartment; great location; excellent staff support; kitchen needs to be better equipped.
This property is ideally located, right in the Dubai Marina. Marina promenade is minutes away. Barasti beach is across the street. Dubai Marina tram which connects to the very efficient Dubai Metro is just downstairs and two stations away from the Metro making it very easy to get around; JBR walk and beach are three or four stations away. CarreFour supermarket is right below in the adjoining building -- very convenient. The staff is excellent: very responsive and helpful. Hernan, Harvey and Eric need a special mention. The apartment is as advertised. It is pricey but quite spacious. It has an ample living area including kitchen and dining and a large bedroom. There is a full bathroom and also a half bathroom, both are adequate but on a small side. The kitchen has all the necessary appliances but it is sparsely equipped as far as utensils are concerned and so is not conducive for a long stay (we stayed a month) -- unless you want to eat out or have a take-out/delivery everyday. However, the staff is happy to provide you with needed utensils when asked, although one does not want to keep on asking for more! That is the only reason we rated it as a four-star. For a short stay for a couple, this apartment is ideal and a five-star. We enjoyed our stay and were very comfortable. We found it to be a perfect base from which to participate in Dubai and Marina activities. Internet and a parking spot are included. The building has great amenities (gym, swimming pool, sauna, etc.). It is secure and staffed with concierge desk.
Dear Mr. Shiraz,
Thank you very much for taking the time to write a very useful review. I am glad to hear that you had a pleasant stay with us and you liked the location.
The overwhelming majority of guests stay for up to a week so the kitchen cookware and dinner set are appropriate for short term stays. However, we provide any additional cookware, dinner set, and equipment promptly upon request. I wish you had requested additional stuff from our property manager during your stay. We hope to make up for this in your next stay with us if the opportunity presents itself.
It made me feel like a local
Charming little apartment by the marina! Best location in Dubai! Had a parking garage, one block from train and supermarket right downstairs! Nice view to the marina and the skyline! Had everything that we needed! The manager was great! Very attentive to our needs and replied to messages very quickly! I will definitely come back! Oh and not to mention waking distance from the beach! We went to walks at the beach every morning! We felt just like a local and we love that!
Ok for a Budget Stay
The apartment was clean, but not at all luxurious. Basically Ikea type furniture, appliances and décor. The property manager was nice and she was responsive, however, when she came to the apartment she didn't explain the water heating system, therefore we took cold showers for two days. She didn't state where the trash should be dumped. The oven stopped working so we were not able to take advantage of baking anything. It was also strange there is no electricity in the bathrooms, this made for uncomfortable hair experiences. The location is nice and local grocery stores are easy to access.
Clean and comfortable apartment in good location.
The apartment is exactly as described and the pictures, that is clean and comfortable. We were there for a week in four people (2+2) and we lived very nicely. From the balcony you can see the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Marina. In Dubai everything is far away and the tram under the building is ideal - two stops to the metro. Dubai Marina with its attractions is within walking distance, the same beach. Shop Carrefour 24/7 is at the bottom of the building. We recommend this place!
Perfect but ......
Beautiful condo, great location, but unfortunately tomuch nose outside. The condo was probably never lived because very few of kitchen equipment for cooking. No beach towel and only 4 towels, this is not much for two people, we understand that there is a clothes washer but it is in context of vacancy for the rest .. everything is perfect
Upon request, we will gladly provide additional towels, linen, cookware, dinner set, etc. Please let us know next time if you would like ANY extra items. Thanks
