Hotel is average service aparments as compared to the price paid..Housekeeping can do a better job.Overall Location is nice but it's a 15 mins walk from nearest Al Fahidi Metro station.Hotel Management also does an average job with answering only to the questions asked.

The location is a bit hard to find. Make sure you have the phone number of the hotel so the cabdriver can call them. Also make sure you don't confuse it with the Capitol Hotel.

We arrived at 9 am in the morning, but check-in was no problem. Also check-in out at 6 am two days later was ok with the receptionist.

Its a 10/15 walk to Dubai Creek. Bur Dubai definitly has a different vibe then the rest of the city.

Cons: no WiFi unless you pay for it. Some holes in the sheets.

We were most impressed with the helpful staff. Our flight arrived in Dubai before 6 AM. We arrived at the hotel at 6:30 AM to see if they would allow us to check in or stow our baggage. They sent us up for breakfast and then prepared our room; we checked in at 7:30 AM. This was amazing! Thank you, Capitol Residence Hotel!

We were disappointed that there is no complimentary internet available in the lobby anymore; the business center has been shut down. The hourly, three hourly or daily internet fee is expensive. Also, the breakfast is not included; it costs about $12 USD per adult. We did not feel the items provided were worth this price although it is a nice enough spread and we appreciated the hotel not charing for our children since they are six and under.

The interior of the facility is quite beautiful; It looks like a 4 star place in the elevators and hallways. The rooms, although in perfect condition, are decorated and furnished in such a way that it's more like a low 3 star place. All of this is very fine for the price and spaciousness though.

This hotel is great if you're traveling as a family. Children under the age are free and linens are provided for them to use the pull out sofa bed, which is in the living room area. There is also a full kitchen including washing machine and a dining table. As others have said, there is a large grocery store very close. It's location is a slight distance from downtown and other attractions, but it is only 15-20 min by taxi. The tourist destination which it is situated nearest to are the Gold and Spice Souks.

Getting around town from this hotel:
There's a bus stop 100 meters up the road; all but two of the buses going from there reach the metro in just two stops. The metro itself is within walking distance but was difficult for our small kids as it was 10-15 minutes walking. There is a bus going directly from this nearby stop to Dubai Mall and it only takes only 20 minutes if traffic is minimal. This is better than going by metro. Al Mamzar beach and Miracle Garden were both too far by public transportation. It took about 1.5 hours to get to both places. Taxis are cheap in Dubai though so I recommend going by taxi to these further destinations.

Hotel Capitol Residency is situated in central location of Dubai, very close to tourist attractions as well as business centres. About 15 km from the International Airport the hotel has good one bed room apartments, where a family of four to five people can stay comfortably. Metro station and restarts are at walking distances. In all a wonderful place for family vocation.

Room Tip: Do not look for food service, thug hospitality is wonderful.

The apartment was a decent size, with kitchen facilities, iron and ironing board and washing machine. The bed was a decent size too with clean bedding and was comfortable. The bathroom was fine with shower over a bath. But we were immediately put off by the smell,on entering the room, and the feeling of dampness, which was a puzzle because it is in the desert. We weren't sure if it was coming through the air conditioning system, but everything felt a little damp and had a musty smell. Additionally they do not have very good cleaners. Areas in the corner of rooms had been ignored, as had the lid to,the waste bit, the area around the fridge and electric cables. The overall feel of the place was not nice, and it wasn't in a particularly nice area surrounded by good eating houses. It was chosen because it is near the airport and convenient for,the centre of Dubai! but I feel we!could have done better on value for money.

This time I decided to spend my vacation in Dubai with my family. As I used to know this hotel, I preferred to make it there and was a perfect choice.
For a family of 4 gives the full comfort, as in the 2 rooms one bed is king size and the extensible couch can accommodate 2 grown children or even 3 if are small. The rooms are very spacious, that is a plus compared with other similar hotels
Also the fridge, microwave, electric stove, automatic wash machine offers all the chances to offer the same home conditions for the kids.
I noticed that during our stay (almost 2 weeks) each day the apartment was cleaned, bed sheets always clean, too. Here one comment: you have to inform the housekeeper when to come, in order to avoid to be disturbed during afternoon rest, for example. We did and all was fine afterwards.
Personal is very fine and friendly.
Taking into account that you are surrounded in this area of restaurants, shops, etc and from this location is easy to go anywhere, I consider to be a perfect choice to stay to spend the time in Dubai. I don't recommend to eat in hotel; breakfast is basic but OK.
The single problem given by taxi access is solved going 100 m on a main street and waiting for 5 minutes maximum until you get one. If you don't want to walk, just ask the reception to find you one.
As before, I strongly recommend this hotel if you like to walk and enjoy the local content & life, total different than malls or other stylish locations. Besides souvenirs (Chinese, of course) you can find very good Indian or Asian quality silk, shawls, textiles.

Room Tip: Ask for promotional prices directly to reception desk. If you are a smoker but family is not, ask f...

One of the best hotel apartments. Its uniquness is its location which is very quiet. Though right in Burdubai its quiet location away from the hustle bustle of main street makes it very prefereably staying options for visitors.
Rooms are sapcious enough for an average Indian to make a complete house in the same of their one bhk and two bhk suite apartment.
Very neat and clean and a perfect home. For people who want to go to beach or fine dining restuarnts, pubs or bars the management provides free / chargeable shuttle service as per schedule to their other sister concern units based on request and room rate package of the guests. This makes u enjoy your trip and come and rest in your apartment just like we do at home enjoy out and rest at home..Lovely and the most courteous staff...I wish them all the best and I must say all must stay only and only at Capitol residence.
