I stayed at flora creek for four nights in the first week of September. I had booked a studio however, upon entering the room I realised I had been upgraded to one bedroom flat at no extra charge. This was the first pleasant surprise.
The flat was very spacious with a very clean and nicely fitted kitchen. The utensils, cutlery, plates, cups, etc in the kitchen were very clean.
The living was also spacious and clean as was the bedroom. The decor was very decent and comforting to the eyes, not loud or dull. The biggest selling point was the view of the creek from the living and the bedroom. Everyday I would have my afternoon tea in the living while enjoying the view. The flat comes with a large terrace, locked for guests security but can be unlocked upon request. No doubt the terrace would be a great plus point come the cooler months.
The flat also had a separate laundry room along with a separate ironing room!
The staff was friendly and highly professional. The housekeeping, wakeup service, and cab service were all superb. They also have a small and efficient business centre which I used and they wavered the charges :)
I also ordered room service twice; once dinner and once breakfast. I have to say it wasn't disappointing at all. Especially the breakfast was rather good, much more so than I expected given my experience at other hotels.
The only problem I faced was the water in the bathroom got too hot to shower despite the water heater being off. It got so hot I had to jump out of the shower. I didn't complain as I took quick showers and was done before it got unbearable. But I am sure had I complained, the hotel staff would have fixed this issue promptly just like they delivered everything else I requested.
I was also a tad bit of disappointed due to the very limited list of tv channels. I watched BBC and CNN the entire stay and got really updated on world news. loool!
Overall my stay was very comfortable and I was very pleased indeed. So much so I showed the place around to my family while skyping with them :) I definitely plan to stay in this hotel again.
The hotel despite being in deira is situated strategically at the creek allowing easy access to key areas in the city while maintaining distance from the dirty and crowded areas in deira and bur.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a comfortable clean place to stay in the heart of the city with great views. Especially diet conscious ppl like myself would also appreciate the kitchen so one can enjoy home cooked healthy meals and not resort to eating out and sacrifice their health while staying at a hotel.
All in all a great place to stay in, short and long term alike.
