“Really good - but could easily have been better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

I really want to like this apartment hotel, because at only around AED5000 for a week in a huge 3-bedroom apartment with en-suite bathrooms, the value is truly amazing. Location is good, too, along Al Makhoum Street in the Deria area.

We ate in the restaurant one evening by coincidence. The food did not look very attractive, but was very tasteful, and it ended up being one of the best meals we had all week.

The staff were generally friendly and helpful. A female receptionist turned out to be rather arrogant and not very helpful, but that was fortunately an exception.

I guess you do get what you pay for, because unfortunately not everything worked as it should. Quite a few lamps in the appartment were broken, and the oven didn't work either. The water heaters worked from one of many identical contacts, so for the first couple of days we had problems figuring out why the water was cold, when it was supposed to be warm. The aircondition was hard to control, until we understood the thermostat was located in a room without air supply, so some doors had to be open and others closed for it to work resonably.

Really a pity, because it would have been very easy for the hotel to give better instructions, and avoid these annoying problems.

Without these, and without the arrogant femaly receptionist, I would happily have rewarded the excellent value with an excellent rating.

Arrived the hotel early morning around five only to be told that no room is vacant. So moved to another hotel for the night. Large two bedroom apartment with t.v's,kitchen,large bathrooms and toilets,good sitting room and a fairly fast wi-fi at 20aed an hour. Food at the la palma resturant was good with buffet at night. I was given a car to the airport on my depature day. Very nice hotel.

We stayed with our family of four (2 adults and 2 teenagers) in room 420 (A very big 3 bedroom 4 bathroom apartment) with full kitchen facilities, washer/dryer, seperate lounge and dining rooms, balconies. big clean bathrooms with fans, television sets in every room and most tasty and plentiful breakfasts every day. The staff were most courteous and very quick with replies to all our requests. There is a supermarket nearby and texis to take you to all the wonderful places in Dubai. Although not impossible, (due to the extrme heat) but it is difficult to walk up to the top of Makhtoum road to get to the shops. We caught taxis off the street (waited inside the airconditioned bus stops !) to The Emirates Mall (where we went to Ski Dubai), to the Mall of Dubai with it's 1200 reatailers, the Gold Souk and walked around the markets around the souk, and numerous other shopping centres and restaurants. The Desert Safari people picked us up from the hotel for our evening tour (we opted for a non aggresive, (without dune bashing) ride to the desert) and the "Desert Safari Dubai" company was more than obliging with our request. Our stay at The Khalidia Hotel was most comfortable and enjoyable and mainly due to all the wonderful staff at this very nice home away from home!

We booked the place about 2 months in advance. We thought it was a good deal then , but prices did slash later on. We asked for a revisal of our package as per current prices which we were refused of. The facilities that they mentioned, all of them weren't provided on all days. The food was good that they provided in breakfast. We didn't try the buffets but overall it appeared a bit pricey compared to surrounding stuff. The rooms were nice , clean , spacious and room service was good too..U can stay here , but look for other options as well...

We went on our first trip to Dubai and booked our families stay at the Khalidia as recommended by a friend. The hotel entrance is off of an alley which is a little awkward, but if you are going to take a cab or bus it really isn't a big deal, however, if you want to drive your own car parking will be an issue. The lobby is small but quant. The rooms are very large offering plently of space for huge get togethers. The 2 bedroom apartments we rented offered spacious rooms, livingroom, diningroom, kitchen, patio, and three bathrooms. We were very pleased with the staff. The rooms were cleaned daily, even if we needed batteries for the remote someone delivered in a timely manner. Someone was always ready to help direct us to a store or even to assist us in hailing a cab. Great place, friendly helpful staff, we will stay agian next visit.

It was just great! There's a DVD player so we got to watch some movies we bought. There's also a wide variety of sat channels to watch.

One of the best things about this hotel is its location, you can to many places on foot easily, like Righa street.

I loved it :)
