“Great rooms and good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

My two friends and I stopped here for a few nights on our travels. We were greeted with juice from one of the very polite doormen whilst checking in, and after having our bags brought up to our room, we found that it was a spacious, clean and nicely air-conditioned.

Nice pool, average food although we didn't try much of it, good value for money.. only word of warning would be to think twice before getting in a taxi they will offer you when you leave the hotel door, they can be very expensive... wait for the regular yellow and green ones that will come by soon enough (no matter how much they try to persuade you into their white, flash cars!)

I spent 5 nights in Golden Sands Three with my partner and for what we paid, we was more than happy with the apartment! On arrival check in was very quick and are room was very clean! It had a handy kitchen with all the essentials you would need! It had a large t.v with plenty english channels on it and the maid service was brilliant!
The air conditioning was fabulous- just what was needed in the summer heat in Dubai! It was a great location- easy to explore Dubai! A taxi to the city centre (where the burj and Dubai Mall was) was only around 20 dirhams (around 4 english pounds)
Breakfast was ok, it was edible but nothing special! But, again I must emphasise this is a cheap place to stay so we was happy enough and just had toast and coffee! If i was to come back to Dubai again I would consider staying at the Golden Sands again! It allowed us to see the beautiful city of Dubai on a budget which was managable!

Centrally located and a GREAT value for the money. Had a studio in GS 3. View over the pool and not noisy at all. Very close to all the sites in Dubai. The food isn't really that good, but there is a little shop across the street if u want to cook. Fully stocked kitchenette so easy to cook for yourself. And spinneys down the road! Staying again next week!

I stayed here for 2 nights. It was ok for that period and I didn't spend any time in the room. There was no cold water running only warm and very hot. Wi-fi was included in my room rate but the first night the wifi was down in my room and I could only access it in the lobby. It was fixed the next day but kept dropping off in my room and I could only use it in the lobby. Staff were friendly, the hotel receptionist seemed really flustered with all the activity going on. With all the other hotels in Dubai i'll choose another if I go back..

Didn't enjoy this hotel at all. Stayed in GS3 and the apartment was very run down and didn't smell pleasant. The breakfast was very average and not really worth having. I would advise yo to spend a little more and stay somewhere nicer

If you are going to spend most of your day outside of your hotel and just want a comfortable place to shower in or a comfortable bed located quite centrally in Dubai, then this place is perfect.
We stayed in a GS3 studio room for 6 nights. The staff at the reception and the porters were really helpful and friendly. When i tried to extend my reservatuon theough the hotel reception by one night, the receptionist advised me to book through the Internet as I would find a better deal there. that was quite nice of him.The hotel offers free parking and wifi (but the wifi is a little slow).
They have a spinneys nearby so we bought a bunch of groceries and had breakfast in our room every morning. The kitchenette is quite well equipped.
This is a 15 min taxi ride from Dubai Mall, a 5 min ride from Burjuman Mall and a 10 min ride to Sheikh Zayed Road. So very centrally located. I was happy with my stay at this hotel and will come back.

Stayed here for 4 nights with friends and family. We booked 3 BHK apartments for 6 families. Amazing and spacious rooms, right opposite Spinnies and short walk to Mc Donalds and KFC if your kids like it. Its a service apartment so the staff did come in to clean. Huge kitchen with all amenities. Would stay here again.
