“A Comfortable stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Our stay at Hotel Golden Sands 10 apartments was very pleasant. There you get what you pay for. Fully furnished with all the modern amenities (refrigerator, washing machine, Dryer, induction, stove, utensils, etc) this apartments was one of its kinds. the pool was clean and so was the hotel. The rooms were very very spacious and neat. We had a very nice and comfortable stay.

We stayed here June 2013 for 4 days.We were generally pleased with our room and the service we received from staff.The hotel was in a good location, near to airport and also near the Dubai Creek with its ancient Spices Souk and Gold Souk which is just and 2 Dirhams ride across the river on the old wooden boats.Internet in the lobby was nice. Quick and easy to get online.I would stay here again.

At the Golden Sands 3 you get what you pay for. The facilities weretired but Ok but thats to be expected from one of the older hotels in the Golden Sands chain. Room and facilities were acceptable as was the restaurant except when it wasn't taken over by Indian Tour Groups. The staff were friendly and accomodating, and the location was only a reasonable walk from the Burjamhan complex and Metrolink station.
The only negative aspect of the stay was the NOISE. Our room was on the inside of the complex and with all the (obviously reto fitted) external air conditioning unitson the outsides of the rooms, the nois was defening, and 24hours a day too. It was like trying to sleap next to a propellar driven aircraft running its engines up...a constant drone. Found it very difficult to sleep at all. But still it was cheap, and convenient.

Room Tip: ask for an outside room, it might be quieter.

Hotel is a 3 star hotel with clean rooms and good facilities, the staff are friendly and will do their best to be helpful. Can't use skype in the UAE at this stage as it was banned until recently, the phone companies haven't opened it up as yet. Short 10min taxi ride to the Dubai shopping mall which is very nice. Breakfast is also very good with plenty to choose from.

My boyfriend and I had a day layover in Dubai on our way back to the states from Thailand and we didn't have a place to stay picked out when we got to the airport. Golden Sands had a little shop among the luxury resorts by the public transportation and we recognized their name as a budget accommodation from Lonely Planet, so decided to check it out. It ended up being a pretty good deal as far as Dubai is concerned, so we decided to go for it. When we got there, the hotel staff was very welcoming. Our room was very large with a sitting area, kitchenette, and even a washing machine! Since we only had a day to see the city, we didn't spend any time in our room except to sleep, but it was definitely a comfortable stay. The one negative was location - it wasn't near any of the city's attractions, and it was a bit of a long walk to the nearest metro stop.

We had 4 days stopover in Dubai on our way to our final destination and stayed here at Golden Sands Hotel Apartment (Golden Sands 10). The location is great close to shopping centres and Spinneys where you can buy your food provisions for the duration of stay. We stayed in a 3BR and 2TB apartment. The apartment is huge, clean and furnished. Not very helpful staffs. I have reported numerous times to the front desk about the telephone in our unit was not working but nothing has been done. We were not bother about the small swimming pool of this hotel as we spent one whole day of our stay in Dubai at Atlantis where we enjoyed the amazing water activities. We stayed here November of 2010. Overall, the place is good value for money but would prefer to stay in another hotel or apartment in our next visit to Dubai.
