My husband and I stayed at the Donatello Hotel Apartments for 4 nights in February. We arrived at the hotel early (well before check-in time) but the hotel allowed us to leave our luggage at hotel so we could go out and spend the rest of the morning checking out the sights.

We had a 1 bedroom apartment which was very spacious with a full kitchen facilities and bathroom with two basins. Everything was very clean and tidy. The decor was fairly modern. In terms of accommodation prices in Dubai, we thought this was value for money. The only problem we had with the room was after we had a shower-no matter how we tried to stop the water flowing onto the floor, the floor would end up with a large puddle of water (quite hazardous). However, the cleaners did an excellent job of cleaning it up every morning.

The hotel is in a good location. It was a short 5 minute walk to Sharaf DG metro station, and to the Mall of the Emirates. There are a few small convenience stores across the road from the hotel and a hotel-run restaurant next door, but we never tried it.

The hotel staff were quite professional, but they didn't seem to know much about the the attractions when we came to them with questions. There are always taxis driving around outside the hotel if you don't want to take the metro.

I don't think Donatello Hotel Apartments is that well known to the taxi drivers. We found it more helpful to say we were at the Holiday Inn Al-Barsha, so the taxi drivers could drive to the right area at least, as the Holiday Inn is just further up the road from the Donatello hotel apartments.

I would recommend others to stay here, and I would stay here again.

The apartments are spacious, clean and comfortable, staff is very friendly. The location of the hotel is good: 3 minutes walk to the nearest Metro station and 10 minutes to the Mall of the Emirates. Rooftop Pool area nice and cosy. Complimentary WIFI is very good.

I stayed 3 days in Jan. Room is very spacious and clean. Metro station is close to hotel and it is easy to go to Mall of Emirates. Also I used complimentary wifi. I was fully satisfied with this hotel.

The hotel is nice, nothing special, but it makes a good deal if you rent one of the apartments for a large family or group. In that case you are able to save some money over two separate hotel rooms. The apartments are large and clean. The bathrooms on the oldish side, but clean. Location is good as the metro is only a few minutes walk away. Heated pool on the roof. Forget the breakfast: very limited and way overpriced. Buy your own food outside. A Subway fast-food is just across the street.

Stayed for 8 days in December. Did not get off to the best of starts when taxi drivers had no idea where the hotel was; it ended up with three drivers having a discussion by the side of the road before one of them realised it was fomerly the Coral Boutique!

Anyhow, the rest was all upside. Large comfortable rooms with useable kitchen (though knifes were very blunt), good beds and free wifi was reliable.

Staff friendly, pool good though did not use the spa. Steam room was steamy. Yes there is not much of a view from either the roof or rooms but given the price we were not too bothered.

Actual location was excellent, couple of minutes walk to the Emirates Mall and metro stations. Did not eat at hotel so don't know how prices compare, for evening snacks/soft drinks we would head out to shrama place around the corner.

We slept well, it was nice and quiet. The housekeeping did a very good job each day.

Would stay again
