“Comfortable Living”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2013

I arrived at 3am to unfortunately be told that they could not find my booking, however after half an hour, they managed to assist me. Appartments are spacious, it is very nice to have a guest toilet. They are clean and spacious. Only problem is the lack of cutlery and dishes. Towels are changed daily but rooms only cleaned every second day and not on a Friday

We got there at 1.30 after our long tiring journey and got told that we couldn't get a room as we were half an hour early. This was acceptable but what was to follow wasn't. Despite us booking the apartment's 3 weeks in advance we were told that our rooms had been given away to some locals as apparently they were "threatening to call the police". This showed an obvious inadequacy of the manager. Instead we were offered different rooms for a night. To be fair they did try hard to compensate for this by offering us Wifi in our room etc.

I stayed in this hotel in January 2013 with my family. Check in was smooth and easy and we got an upgrade to an apartment although we paid for room only, which was really kind of them. Apartement is spacious, large living room with sitting area, dining table, large kitchen with most of appliences (but not enough dishes), toalet, masterbedroom with bathroom. Bedding was nice and changed regularly, but carpets were not cleaned in proper way in my opinion.
Breakfast was poor, not even scrambled eggs offfered. Mainly it was oats, cooked vegetables, some cheese and fruit. Muesli is there too and some strange salty muffins with fruit yougurt.
Location is not really good, as hotel is next to a verz busy street (almost a high way) and isolation is poor so you just have to get used to noise as it can't be avoided. Metro is far and you need to take a taxi for 6-7 minutes drive to get to neaest station. Yes, Lamcy mall is 30 m away, but it is one old-fashion mall with cheap stuff (Chineese goods), but it has food corner that might be useful.
Swimming pool is on the first floor, but it was not possible to use it at this time of year as there is no water heating and it was rather cold to swim.
My biggest problem was that there was no WI-FI in rooms, but cable internet only that was useless for my devices.
I must say that the stuff is really nice and helpful and they even managed to get me a wi-fi router on the last day of my stay.
This was my second time in Dubai and I must say staying in Barsha was much more easier, comfortable and quiter than this.

Room Tip: try to get a room not overlooking the highway

POSITIVE:
Good location. Clean. Friendly staff. Washing machine in every room. The larger rooms are spacy. Relatively cheap rate.
NEGATIVE:
Very close to a busy high way. Not for those who want a quite place or interessted in sleeping well at night! (the sound insulation is bad). Despite that the complex is not very old, it needs some serious renovation. The staff is not very sharp but polite. No WiFi in the rooms.
The breakfast is very simple and of low variety and quality.
CONCLUSION:
I would rate this hotel as a 3 star facility. Considering the cost, it is an average hotel if your expectations are realistic.

Room Tip: Make sure your windows are not facing the high way.

My wife and I stayed at Al Waleed Palace Hotel Apartments from December 15 - 23 during a visit to her parents who live near Lamcy Plaza. After about 20 hours of travelling from Houston, this was a fantastic place to begin our weeklong trip to Dubai. We stayed in 502 which was a 1 bedroom apartment -- complete with unbeatable view of the Dubai skyline. The apartment had plenty of space, 2 bathrooms, full kitchen with washer/dryer, and excellent balcony!

The staff was excellent. Sultan, the manager, really made sure our stay was pleasant. He went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable including offering to change rooms due to some small spots on the carpet (we politely declined as we were quite settled in the apartment!). It should be noted that the apartments are all undergoing renovations/updating; though we were in a non-renovated room, it was still a pleasant place to call home for a week! Mary and April (front desk staff) were very friendly and professional (periodically checking on how we were doing) as well as Pankaj (bellman/concierge).

We would not hesitate to stay here again next time we visit Dubai. Not only is it a great location (a few kilometers from the Dubai Creek) and walking distance from the Lamcy Plaza & Al Karama areas (lots of small restaurants, cafes, and shopping), it was a short taxi drive to downtown Dubai (Dubai Mall / Burj Khalifa) as well as other attractions (Mall of Emirates / Jumeirah Rd / Meydan Racecourse) & metro stops. Book through an online company rather than directly through the hotel for the best rates!

Thanks again to Sultan, Mary, April, and Pankaj for making our stay here a memorable one!

Room Tip: 502 offers a great view of Dubai!

Old dirty rooms. Luck of kitchen apliences. Water leacks everywhere. Mald in bathrooms. Loud street. Location next to big traffic. Tight parking places for very small cars. Not best part of Dubai. Real price 20% more then on booking.com, due to hidden taxes. The only advantage slow but free internet.
В общем унылое хумно. Много лучше мест в Дубаи.
