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.
