Avari Hotel Apartments Al Barsha
Ranked #51 of 304 Specialty Lodging in Dubai
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The location is great, very near the Mall of Emirates (5mn walk). The hotel is definitely designed for serviced apartments so not really convenient for short stays such as one night ot two. The one bedroom apartment where I stayed was equipped with a small kitchen and a laundry washing machine explaining why there is no breakfast facility in the hotel but reception can organise it to be delivered.
Overall the place was clean but the staff is missing some corners (I found some long hairs on the floor in the toilet) and it would an improvement for this hotel to implement a control after room cleaning. On the improvement side, they could supply coffee and tea bags (kettle is available) as welcoming present, and also a sample of washing powder for those who are courageaous enough to wash. Some more cuttlery would be welcome such as potato peeler and a bit more thane 2 knoives and forks.
The first week I gave my laundry to the hotel and paid about 3 times more than the laudry service that is about one hundred metre away in a side street so carry your bags and save! The TV was mot latest model and I had to switch it on manually as the remote worked for everything else but this, the number of programs is limited but similar tom other hotels. There are several restaurants around at very affordable price, on the way to Mall of Emirates there is a hotel called City Maxx with agreat bar on ground floor and many restaurant and shopping is nearby. The staff was friendly and very helpful and overall my one month stay was enjoyable. I wouls be happy to return or recommend this hotel.

Overpriced. very bad facilities and amenities. unhelpful staff. The shower in the guest bathroom is a joke. You need to sit on the toilet to take a shower there.

The only good thing about this hotel was the location and still, we could've found a better hotel for that price in that area

Hotel was clean and service was good. enjoyed my stay, staff was help full and accommodating. stayed here with some body recommendation and it was great. Had a little baby and they really took care of my request of Baby cot, clean room when baby was awake, wash the dishes twice as food coked for my baby was three times a day as fresh cooking done.
we also had some issue with the Ac and the technician came at 2 am in morning and fixed the Ac well done and keep it up. they have opened a restaurant now so the breakfast was taken from them on very nominal charges and the choice of menu was good.
they have shuttle bus to take you too Malls and Beach but is has certain time and you have to book in advance. Room was big and clean, they have a laundry in basement where all the guest are washing the clothes it was free of charge so some times had to wait to use as all machines were occupied

Room Tip: take front rooms as they are big

I am currently at this property and looking for alternate accommodation. The place is crawling with cockroaches. My room has been fumigated 3 times and still there is bugs. I am completely disgusted. I have been in hotels all over the world 2 stars to 6 stars... never seen anything quite like this. I hope they get the problem fixed. Great location, good size accommodation, friendly staff... and a ton of cockroaches. Deal breaker!!!

Had two stays in one bedroomed apartments during January and February 2012 whilst visiting the Gulf on business.
Found the apartments to be quite spacious and clean, and absolutely perfect for what we were looking for.
There is no cafe or restaurant, and we found that the best option was to buy breakfast foods from one of the many nearby supermarkets.
One tip - some of the one bedroom apartments have a full open plan kitchen and some only a galley kitchenette - try to get the first option.

Advertised as being suitable for a family of four, there was only one double bed. The settee could sleep a child but you have to pay the equivalent of 20 Euros per night to have an additional bed brought in. The kitchen is only equipped with two of everything and, even then, it was missing basic equipment such as a washing machine and a kettle. The apartment smelt, was dusty enough for me to write a message in the dust on the cupboards and was home to several cockroaches every night. The swimming pool on the roof only has sun on it until just after midday and so could not compensate for our experience. We have just arrived back home and have put all of our clothes in the washing machine because they smelt as musty as the hotel we just vacated.

Room Tip: Do not book a one bedroomed apartment for a family of four (in spite of guidelines saying that it is...

The Location was a bit of peroblem but when we called the hotel they guided us and we reached.

the pool is small and you can not dive but the gym and sauna jaquzzi facilities are nice as we were on holidays but enjoyed
they do not have any restraurant and we had to order from out side the reception was very help full for sending the menues to us for diffrent type of resturants.
the House keeping staff was nice they didnt know much english but were very helpfull.
