This was our first time to Dubai and this hotel was the last stop on. 7 week European holiday. This hotel was the worst ever. The service at reception appalling. A woman and 2 mean stood chatting to each other and didn't seem to notice customers waiting. We had 2 rooms booked a triple bed room and a double room for our family of 5. We ended up with 2 rooms with a double bed on each. They said they would bring a mattress. After waiting all day and asking several times the mattress turned up well after 7pm. Our children were very tired by now. We only,had 1 towel in one room and 2 towels in,the other room. Very stained and old towels and bathroom filthy with mould ,everywhere. The room smelt too. Very disappointed with our first,impression of Dubai would never recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Stay at a different hotel. Don't even consider staying there.

This hotel is well located, close to the bargain area Al Karama and to the Metro. Spacious neat room, nice bathroom, and kithenette. Not very clean though..dont want to cook there..but can if you want. Cheap and NICE food at the hotel. Have extras like pool, gym etc. If you find it on a special, it will be value for your money.

I was in Dubai for a friend's wedding and stayed at London Creek. They sent a complimentary cab to pick me up from the airport. On arrival, I had to wait almost an hour to get the room keys. I feel like the front office is understaffed, considering they have to deal with the newly arrived guests and also cater to phones ringing off the hook. The room was fine, small bathroom, small kitchen with cutlery items. One issue was that I had booked a room with twin beds since a friend of mine was also going to stay over for a night, but they gave me a double bed. I called them up 3-4 times and they kept telling me to give them 30 mins and they would change the room, but they never did. The best thing about this place is its location, very close to a 24 hr supermarket and also very close to the Karama metro station.

If not for the comparatively cheaper rates, I wouldn't go back.

London Creek Apartment Hotel is located in the residential area of Karama. A handful of supermarkets and restaurants are located around London Creek. The busy Karama centre is located closeby. Particularly, there are a number of Indian restaurants within walk-able distance.

The hotel has a friendly front office and the room service is prompt. The rooms are reasonably clean.

The complimentary breakfast is decent and caters to any nationality.

The accommodation is just spacious for a couple of guests. The bathrooms are small, though they have bath tub.

There are not many interesting Cable TV channels available. Wifi internet is available on paid basis. The central airconditioning is ok.

It is easy to get a taxi near the hotel any time of the day / night.

Just ok for a business related short stay.

Seriously is the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. Got there and room was filthy and stunk (also didn't have washing machine as mentioned when booking). Bathroom had mould, there was loose wiring in kitchen, bedsheets were filthy, walls had damp marks all over them (will upload pics soon). We asked to change rooms and were shown 3 others and they were in exactly the same condition. When asking for a different room the staff weren't surprised by my comments on the room, seemed like they'd heard it all before.  finally got a different room on the 5th floor the next day which was a lot better. Found staff to be very rude and arrogant, only members of staff that actually spoke to us during our 8 days there were the cleaner and the male nightshift receptionist.

Stayed here for days and was not impressed neither with the cleanliness nor the rotten silicon around the bathtub. The smell of indian scent made me run through the corridors not breathing worried to vomit. AC good.
