“Dont Come to this Hotel”
Reviewed 28 December 2011

Kindly note that this Hotel doesn’t have staff and the Rooms are not cleaned even upto Night time even after several requests.

The Manager and Owner of the Hotel is very very rude and instead of being apologetic and do something to correct the things threatened us with dire consequences if we demand even our basic right and is very crooked and comfortable in saying that he has received full non refundable advance amount and hence he not worry about anything .

Its our sincere request to you to remove this Hotel from your website so that other guest don’t suffer what we are going through.

What are the Guest expected to clean the room themselves .

The guests are in limbo as they have paid full amount and the Owner is happy in forfeiting other peoples hard earned money .

Dont come to this Hotel otherwise you will have a harrowing time.

Room Tip: Dont Come to this Hotel, What are you asking for a good room, All Rooms are Dirty , If you come here...

Pros:
-Convenient location-a taxi ride to Jumeirah will cost only 15AED(Approx £2) and 25AED to Dubai Mall (Approx £4)
-Kitchen facilities were good as it even had a washing machine.

Cons:
-Not suited for families as there were no inter-connecting rooms and a typical odour in the rooms. When we asked them to look at this, nothing was done and the smell continued throughout our stay of 10 days. The outside windows looked like they were never cleaned and my kids(aged 11 and 14) had a disgusting view of these uncleaned windows.
-Specifically request a quiet room as the loud prayers from the mosque opposite will certainly wake you up. We requested a room change twice, but our requests were ignored despite them promising to review it if rooms were available.
-The air condition would stay high and it was not possible to increase the temperature if you were feeling too cold at night. We have to just leave the A/c fans on.
-Wi-fi only available in the lobby area, unless you have a comptuer to connect in the rooms via ethernet cable
-The fittings in the bathrooms were nearly coming off and our shower would have fallen on us had we been not careful. Also, you could barely stand in the shower as they were tiny.
-It was our 4th visit to Dubai, but this was the worst apartment we have stayed in. It seemed more like an apartment geared for business travellers and not leisure travellers.

Room Tip: If you have to book this apartment, request a quiet room at the back as the front faces the mosque...

I stayed at the Minc Waterfront during Ramadan in 2008 with my pregnant wife and 10 month old son. Even in our situation, the stay was very comfortable. The amenities provided made us feel thoroughly at home. Room service was not only prompt, but also flexible in their timings. Ample parking in the basement even for visitors.
The rooms were spacious with well provided dining area, kitchenette with sufficient equipment and bathroom with a bathtub. The rooms were well lit thanks to full windows and yet quiet. The thick drapes kept out the light and the air-conditioning worked very well. All in all a very comfortable stay. Will recommend further and visit again.

Currently staying at Waterfront,Good value for money, The Studio Apt has most of home comforts - Fully equipped Kitchen, bath/shower, DVD, Sat Tv, Hi-fi system, fast free Internet, Air con, Staff are friendly and helpful. Both Gym and Pool are on the small side but ok for brief use. Apt comm areas kept very clean. Couple of issues on downside, crack in the bath, along with the limited number of English speaking TV channels. Located within 5 minute walk of Metro. One of the better apts in Dubai. Overall very good value and would defiantly recommend.

We stayed at the Waterfront Hotel Apartments for four nights in mid-October after searching long and hard for affordable layover accomodations. The MiNC was one of the cheapest (and most stable in terms of price) hotels available. We were pleasantly surprised to have the staff greet us and help us to our room (though we arrived quite late at night). The rooms are a decent size, with a nice large closet, a television, a small seating area and an enormous bed. The kitchenette was clean and well equipped and made our stay easier - as we were not forced to go out for every single meal. We picked up supplies at the smalls store directly across the street. The bathroom was large and clean.

We had a small issue with our in-room washer and dryer combo (what a treat to have your own right in the room!) but the staff kindly took all of our clothing to an adjancent room, washed and hung it all to dry - even though it was the middle of the night!

The manager was friendly and made great efforts to ensure that we were satisfied.

The best part: The rooftop pool and lounge area. This was largely deserted, surprisingly, but a nice way to cool off after a day of sight-seeing. The pool was clean and the view is excellent. There is also a small gym in the hotel which was an added bonus.

The location of the hotel is excellent, within walking distance to the Creek and surrounding areas and also a short distance to the metro and a mall (though I would recommend taking a taxi since it is so cheap!)

We would definitely return for another layover in Dubai, and would certainly stay at MiNC again.

Thank you!

Reviewed 24 October 2010

We stayed here for 2 nights during our extended stay in Dubai. From staying in Xclusive apartments which was Modern and Clean this was the totally the OPPOSITE!!!!!

Our one bedroom apartment was really disappointing and absolutely disgusting. There were footprints all over the white bedsheets. When i rang reception they sent a staff to change sheets. However cleaner was ill-mannered as he didnt greet or say anything when opened door, whilst changing sheets he was on his mobile having a chat for 10 mins then he said he would come back in 2 mins waited for 15mins still no return which resulted me in to call reception again. Later realised Bathroom had mudstains on the walls and all the floor tiles in the apartment was dirty made my feet black. We had a standing shower which was so small when you twisted and turned you would touch the horrible shower curtain. Our room was promptly changed the next morning as i booked in for a king bed not twin beds and complained about hygiene. 2nd room was better however bathroom tiles still had stains on them which i just could not be bothered in reporting as it was my final night. I dont expect 5* quality in a 3* apartment with the price i paid however i do strongly believe at the VERY LEAST IT NEEDS TO BE CLEAN. I do think there needs to be investment for this place as the furniture is very old and bathrooms need to improved.

Good things about this apartment is it spacious but no point if its dirty and it provides free high speed internet which is rare in Dubai and if you want to be few mins walk from the creek then this meets your requirements. Also, the staff on the reception were nice.However i would not stay here again and would not recommend it at all.
