Don't be put off by the small number of reviews this place has received, it only opened in late 2012 so it's still brand new. I stayed here for 3 weeks on a business trip and I would happily come back here again.
Although it is not in one of the most popular areas of Dubai, it is only 3 mins walk from the Union metro station, meaning you can be at Dubai Mall in around 20 mins or so. It is also a 10 min walk down to the creek, where you can pick up a taxi boat to take you across to the souk area.
My 1 bed appt was fantastic (when booking or checking in, ask for a room on as high a floor as possible as the views over the city are great) and plenty big enough for me and my girlfriend. The living area was big, open and well furnished. The kitchen has everything you need, including microwave, washer/dryer, cooker, dishwasher and all the cutlery & crockery you'll need.
Bathroom also nice size, with huge bath, good shower and also a separate toilet room.
The front desk staffs were very helpful except on 1 matter. I asked on check-in about the charging of my room back to my business account, however 18 days later, and despite numerous prompts from me and calls back to my team in the UK, they still had not resolved my query.
We only ate in the hotel on two occasion: breakfast, which was very good though expensive at AED110; and dinner at the Yasmin restaurant, which served genuinely beautiful food with outstanding service.
One final point - there is no bar in the hotel and no decent hotel bar within easy walking distance. If you are travelling in these apartments then consider picking up some beers or wine at Dubai airport.
I would definitely recommend these apartments.
