We stayed here for 6 nights and found it brilliant for the pocket change we paid per night. If you are after 4* luxury you will be disappointed, but if you are after clean, convieniently located with a pool and sun lounge area this is more than adequate.
The few negative things we encountered were: no dish cloth or washing up liquid was provided in the apartments so we had to buy some our selves. Breakfast is pretty poor for 30dhms and we had to ask reception 5 times to come and reset our safe on the first day. These are minor though compared to how good value for money this place is.
Free wifi is available in the lobby. The rooftop pool and sun bathing area is very clean and welcoming, we spent many happy hours up there catching the rays. Most of the time it was just me and my partner up there and you can take your pick on sun beds.
The hotel is located in a residential area of Dubai, so is quiet but local amenities are close by. Spinneys is a 24hr supermarket that is less than 15 min walk away. You have access to the red and green metro line. Green is slightly nearer with a 7 min walk and the red is 15 mins away but you can cut through the airconditioned Burjaman mall which is well worth it.
20 mins on the metro will get you to the Dubai Mall which will cost you no more than 2dhms or you can get a taxi which will take the same amount of time but cost 20dhms. If you can't be bothered to head into town for dinner then there are plenty of local restaurants nearby which look great, we just weren't there long enough to try them!
If I was hitting Dubai on a budget then I would definitely return to the Winchester Grand!
P.S no problems with Air Con what so ever.
