I don't really see this as a hotel to be honest. With a lovely kitchen and excellent bathroom facilities, I can call this a service apartment for business travellers who are staying for mid to long term. And it's a good choice for families who want to check out Dubai and stay together in an apartment.

We have chosen to take a long term residence at the Residence Suites. The staff, facilities, and situation are outstanding. The facility is large enough to meet all our needs, but small enough for the staff to know us by name and make us feel at home. The situation on the creek means we have a beautiful outlook, somewhere to... More

I stayed for 3 nights in an executive suite. The personalised care by the executive floor staff is marvellous. The executive lounge is extremely cosy and spacious. The health club and the swimming pool is a cutting edge with a friendly atmosphere. Besides, the location is perfect; the hotel is connected to a mall and a walking path with many... More

It is a perfcet place for people who stay for long time in Dubai. Located at festival city it is always home away from home. The suites lack all the glamor of the Intercontinental propoerties but it is indeed value for money, The room service is good enough and the restaurants serve fairly good stuff.

I checked out some of the reviewers here, and there are more than a few fakes. Why would anyone based in Dubai, pay to stay in many hotels in Dubai - doesn't make sense. I booked this hotel originally for 8 nights, but checked out after the first night. On arrival I was a bit worried that the well oiled... More
