“Spacious, good location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

This is my second stay at Chelsea tower, but I think I enjoyed my first stay better. The location is fantastic, rooms are very clean, unfortunately this time I did not get a good view. They only had one person at the reception, maybe because of the time I arrived 2.30am, but at that time you just want your room and your bed. Check in took almost 45mins, extremely slow.
The food was lovely ate a few times in the hotel, more of dinner. We found it very difficult to have a good nite sleep, it was very noisy as the hotel was full. I guess it has to do with the time we were there as it was the April holiday season. I did notice the staff have been changed and not as friendly as the other staff I met on my first visit.
All said and done, I still love this hotel and would recommend it to anybody, and would stay there again.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a good view, so you do not end up facing the building next door.

We stayed at Chelsea Tower in early April 2014 for four nights as a family unit of six people. The 3BR apartment was very spacious, and we had wonderful city views from our 46th floor vantage point. The location was very convenient (the Metro was right in front of us, although we mostly used taxis) and close to a number of attractions including the Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa. The staff were very courteous and helpful. We had some concerns about Wifi access, but in the end this worked out fine.

We also used the gym and pool and found them fit-for-purpose.

The only minor downside is the entrance to the hotel and the lobby area which is rather small and can appear crowded at times.

Room Tip: Higher floors would usually offer better views.

Stayed there during the lights festival and the view from our 36th floor apartment on illuminated Burj Khalifa was absolutely magnificent. The staff is really friendly and helpful, spacious apartments and the nice pool. The location is really good as well - close to Dubai Mall and not far from all the other Dubai attractions either. The Metro station is virtually across the street and there are always plenty of taxis as well. Within walking distance there are dozens of places to eat and one big supermarket as well if you fancy cooking. The only downside for us there that the breakfast was good but a bit basis and the soundproofing could be a bit better. Other than that it was nearly perfect for us.

Room Tip: Some rooms (on the side facing Burj Khalifa) don't have balconies, so keep this in mind if you...

This hotel is in a great location and the rooms aren't bad although the hotel needs updating as the room decor and furniture seems like it's from the 1970's. The rooms are adequate in size and the air conditioning is great. I have stayed at newer 4 and 5 star hotels that were less expensive so the price really needs a review by management. The swimming pool is excellent and clean, the spa is good too. It's just a short taxi ride away from Dubai Mall (£2) the hotels own car service costs £5 so ask them to order you a taxi. The lobby is very small and doesn't seem to suit this hotel as it looks like it's from a 2 star hotel. One thing that really annoyed me is the huge £27 odd for wifi for the 6 days we stayed, especially when I found out the UAE has barred Internet calls including FaceTime and Skype! Wifi SHOULD be free in every decent hotel, most good hotels provide it free. And why not provide free airport shuttle for the guests that spend all that money? There was no restaurant in this hotel either, if you want food they get it from across the road at a restaurant and charge you for the pleasure. Also the rooms are barely sound proofed and you can hear your neighbours' flushing toilets and banging doors!

Dear Guest,

Greetings from Chelsea Tower Hotel Apartments!

Thank you for taking the time to write a valued feedback following your stay with us at Chelsea Tower Hotel Apartments.

We have taken your feedback on a positive note and will definitely work towards improving on certain points; it is with your support that we seek for constant improvement. However we are pleased to note some of the positive aspects of your stay. We would like to highlight that the last major and overall renovation of the hotel was done in 2009 and now we are heading towards our next renovation which is starting soon. Our WI-FI charges are far less than compared to all the hotels in the vicinity. We have a very popular restaurant in our hotel, Chelsea Garden café which is located on ground floor and open from 6.30am to 3.00 am and have 24 hours room service. It has one of the biggest outside area where you can enjoy the meal with a nice view. We also serve food and beverages at our pool side.

Hope to have another opportunity to meet up to your expectation in the future.

Kind regards,

We had a 2 bed apartment which was very spacious, with great facilities. Staff were excellent, with cleaning and towels changed regularly. The location is fantastic, with only a short journey to the main attractions in Dubai. The taxis are very cheap so it is easy to get around. We didn't eat here so I cant comment, however, we had a friend visit us one evening and he had to show his passport, so they can be very strict.

Dear Guest,

Greetings from Chelsea Tower Hotel Apartments!

It's nice to go through such a fantastic review from you on our hotel website and thank you for making us a part of your visit to Dubai.

At Chelsea we strive towards guest satisfaction and it’s our pleasure to note that you were satisfied with cleanliness and space of the apartment, facilities provided and the fantastic location of our Hotel. As you have stated, our hotel on the Sheikh Zayed Road next to Financial Metro station is ideally located that makes it so convenient to visit most of the attractions in Dubai. We have a restaurant on ground floor serving all International, Arabic, Asian and Continental food which hopefully you will try on your next visit.

Look forward to have another opportunity to serve once again in the future.

Our family of three adults spent three nights in a two bed apartment. We found the apartment on the 30th level to be extremely spacious. It had 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms each with a toilet plus another separate toilet and handbasin near the living area, a generous lounge dining area plus a large kitchen. Windows were big with terrific views and let in loads of light. The sofa's in the lounge were very comfortable and the big TV was great.

The bed, however I did find hard and uncomfortable and we had to request another blanket as the ones provided were inadequate. The kitchen appliances all worked well once we had figured them out as there were no instruction books for them and the oven had two dials with absolutely no indication of what they were for. (A bit difficult if you need a specific temperature to cook anything)

The whole apartment was extremely clean and well presented and it was serviced daily in a very efficient manner. We were unable to get the safe to lock properly but as we always seemed to be in a rush we never got around to asking for it to be fixed.

The pool area was fabulous, very large pool and spa set in a pleasant area with comfortable loungers and nice amount of plants and greenery. All the staff we met were most helpful and friendly and both check-In and check-out were easy.

We often had to wait quite a while for a lift and sometimes it appeared as if there was only one lift working. Unfortunately the corridors and lift lobby on our level were often littered with dirty dishes and smelled of cigarette smoke.

One of the best things about Chelsea Towers and apartments is the fact that the train stop is right outside the building. Be careful about using the private taxi's outside the door as they work out more expensive than the average Dubai taxi's. However if you have a bigger group of people, extra luggage or just want to travel in a more spacious vehicle they are ideal.

Dear Guest,

Greetings from Chelsea Tower Hotel Apartments!

It is nice to read such a detailed review following your stay at Chelsea Tower Hotel Apartments!

Thank you for indicating that you were happy with the space of the apartment and found it comfortable. All of our apartments are fully equipped and the instruction book is provided in each apartment with detail usage of all the equipments, however we regret it was not available in your apartment. The safe deposit box is very easy to operate and we are always happy to assist our guests in case they are not able to operate the same.

We are gratified to note the positive aspects of your stay with us, particularly the cleanliness in the apartments, our swimming pool which is one of the largest among other hotels on Sheikh Zayed Road, the ambience of our spa and most importantly the service rendered by our wonderful staff. As you have rightly mentioned the best thing about our hotel is its location which is right next to the Financial Metro Station. We have a limousine service available for our guest's if they wish to travel in bigger and better cars otherwise we always assist our guests to arrange a Dubai Taxi. But being Hotel close to Financial metro station our guests always prefer to travel in metro.

Look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you once again.

Kind regards,

Stayed in the Chelsea tower apartments for a stopover in Dubai. The apartment was spacious and clean. The service from all the staff was excellent, very efficient and helpful. Even though we arrived very early in the morning, reception phoned the housekeeping staff and our room was made available within minutes. If we needed a taxi they would get one for us, or any information or directions they were so helpful. The hotel is very close to the metro stop which we took to get to Dubai Mall and the Burj Khalifa. The metro is very cheap and frequent but also very crowded. We could not get on two trains as they were just too full. Forced our way on to the third but was very unpleasant. We found that the local taxi drivers were great and used taxis to get around. I would recommend the hotel but think that there are better located ones if you want to be close to the beach or marina. It has a nice pool and gym. I would not recommend the breakfast - overpriced and not very nice.
