Reviewed 3 June 2014

We checked in early in the hotel and got the room keys instantly even though the check in time was stated as 2pm. The hotel is very big, clean and room size is pretty big with attached kitchen and bathroom. Room has sofa chairs, small dining table, dressing table, big sized bed, 2 almirahs to keep our stuff and electronic safe along with iron and ironing table. Overall very good. The kitchen has fridge, induction cooktop, pop-up toaster, basic utensils to cook, washing machine and daily free supply of tea, coffee, milk kit to make u comfortable. The hotel also provide complementary 2 water bottle at the time of check in.

Hotel Facilities - has free full sized gym, big pool access with b'ful dubai downtown view, steam sauna searately for men and women and Free WIFI in lobby. The hotel also offers free air cnditioned bus/shuttle to most attractions with free pick and drop as well, it saves you lot of time and money itself.

Staff - hotel staff is very nice, gentle and more than willing to help you with any requirement. Most staff is asian and speaks hindi very well.

Location - hotel is 1 Km away from nearest metro station (Al-Karama) but still a good location. from here you can walk down to Meena Bazaar also (2km) or take a bus from outside the hotel. Taxis are always available outside the hotel and most importantly the grocery store (Jyothis) is just below next building (less than 100 mts) which is a very big plus.

Overall our 4 nights stay at this hotel was very good, recommend this hotel to all.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room, for a good view and fresh air.

I had been to the hotel recently. Great hotel with great staff. The rooms are great with all facilities needed by a traveler to make his holidays memorable. Staff are great with an great attitude to provide the best. To name specially Sanjeev, he went out of the way to make us confortable. An eager to serve and provide the best of hospitality with a smile on his face, that makes him different. I have been traveeling all these years and seldom I see an helpful person like him. Room Service and Food is awesome. I would like to come back again and again. Kudos and Best of Luck to entire team.

I have being staying at this place ever since I started visiting Dubai. Till date would have checked in at least 40 times. What fascinates me is the extraordinary huge rooms with all possible amenities. The Breakfast is pretty ordinary. The rooms are clean and service is always with a smile. The advantage is that you have a lot of restaurants close by. Karama metro station is also at walking distance.

You will need to pay the extra night charges if you are arriving at 1am. There is an additional Dubai hotel tourist charge upon checkin. We booked a spacious 2 bedrooms apartment (HUGE) with 2 bathrooms plus kitchen and laundry facilities. It even has this tiny weeny ironing room whousing the ironing board - it doesn't have a power point for the iron! Air conditioning performed beautifully and you must leave it on. Don't open the windows as it's dusty and smoggy. But you must bring EVERYTHING for the kitchen including dishwashing liquid, laundry detergent etc. The lounge suite was pretty disgusting with stains even though it had been cleaned. The hotel needs to update their furniture as the dining chairs cushions had lost its spring! Staff were friendly and helpful. Recommend that you will need to take a taxi (quite cheap) everywhere as it's not really within walking distance to any malls or near enough to the metro (not in the Dubai heat). There is a conveneint supermarket nearby.

Thank you for staying at Winchester Hotel Apartments and appreciate taking time to share your feedback on Tripadvisor .
Please allow me to express my sincere apologies for being disappointed about the sofa stains and the missing socket in the iron room. However, we have taken note of your feedback and communicated to the respective Head of Department in order to avoid any such possible scenario in the future.
With each guest comment received we strive to put comments into effect to make our guests’ stay with us a more pleasing and memorable one.
Kindly be advised that Dubai Tourism and Commerce Marketing have imposed “Tourism Dirham” recently and the said amount is very nominal.
We have also noted your suggestion and surely it will be discussed in our Management Meeting and appropriate action will be taken to please our patrons.
Once again appreciate your feedback and hope to welcome you back at the Winchester Hotel Apartments.
Peter Shekhar---Managing Director.

After reading mixed reviews we were a little nervous to stay here but took a chance and were very satisfied. We stayed in a studio apartment which was nice and large, had a comfortable king size bed with all white linen and the kitchen (esp. the washer/ dryer) was very handy. Some reviewers mentioned a weird smell, I think this is the strong detergent the hotel uses. Our room was totally bleached when we arrived. The smell was intense. Luckily the windows could open so we aired out the room and the cleaners didn't clean that deeply again until we left.

The hotel is in a nice area. Kuwait street is well known by taxi drivers and has a number of other hotels nearby. We walked to the Spinneys supermarket at 6am on arrival and felt very safe. The supermarket is open 24 hrs which is a plus and there is a Mc Donald's next to it too. The metro is also a short walk from the hotel and if you can deal with the crowds it's a cheap way to get around.

We found it a bit tricky to get dinner delivered; there are only two restaurants that deliver to this hotel and the food wasn't very nice. There also didn't seem to be any bars nearby so an evening drink after retuning to the area wasn't possible. This is really my only complaint and so I would definitely stay here again and recommend it for the big saving (as compared to staying on Sheik Zayed Rd).

Check in was very professional and our suite was ready at 10.30 am. It was very spacious with a fully equipped kitchen and large balcony. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the staff courteous and helpful. The position is actually very convenient with very good places to eat nearby, supermarkets and the metro station no more than a 10 minute walk in the heat of the day.
