From the moment I booked with Savoy Central Apartments, I was impressed. Their professionalism & speed in replying to my queries regarding their airport transfer service (which is very good I may add - only AED75 one way, on-time & convenient) and answering other questions I had was greatly appreciated.
Upon arrival, we were met with friendly warm welcoming reception staff who were only too pleased to have us in Dubai and staying with them. Our suitcases were taken care of (later to be carried to our room) and we were promptly offered cold orange juice whilst checking-in. All our correspondence was documented and payment details taken care of. It was a smooth check-in process. We arrived at 8am and our room was ready!
We stayed on the 5th floor in a spacious, air-conditioned apartment-room with fitted kitchen (microwave, stove-top, fridge, kettle, toaster, pots & pans, crockery, cutlery, etc). The room admittedly was looking aged, BUT, the hotel is under renovations at the moment so no doubt the apartments are being upgraded. However, it is spotlessly clean (serviced each day) and very comfortable. The beds were fitted with crisp clean linen and provided a good night's rest. The bathroom is spacious, clean and offers guests towels and complimentary toiletries. The room has a large flat-screen TV (plenty of channels to choose from), sofa as well as a useful safe to lock away your valuables.
With several 24HR supermarkets on your doorstep you don't have to worry about where to find groceries either. We ordered room service one night & were pleasantly surprised - it was tasty and affordable :)
Reception staff are more than happy to help with suggestions of things to do and places to see too, giving you an insiders scoop! They were such a handy source of information during our stay - most days they helped getting a taxi too. Nothing was ever too much trouble! Santosh is an asset to the front desk team!
The hotel's location is ideal. We also felt safe the entire time - even late at night. It is a mere 7-10 minute walk to the closest Metro Station (Al-Fahidi) giving you easy access to the old town as well as all the other city attractions (malls, beaches, Burj Khalifa, etc). We used taxis mostly which are inexpensive and convenient (as well as air-conditioned!).
We will be returning to Dubai & without hesitation, will be staying at Savoy Central Hotel Apartments again. It's great value for money and the staff are truly wonderful hosts!
