The nice thing about these apartments is the location. It's a walk away - a few hundred meters from BurJuman station, which incidentally is at the intersection between both red and green lines on the train line (it only crosses at 2 locations). So if you want to access to everything via train, this is the location.
The apartments itself is average. Decor is very old. It's furnished ok - has fridge, stove, washing machine - what you need. However, the bathrooms are not that great. Everything was old and dingy looking. We stayed at a 2 bedroom apartment and they only put one towel per bathroom (2 bed; 2 bath) and had to call to ask for more.
The beds are above average, and sleep was ok.
As for breakfast, I've stayed at quite a few places before and this by far has been the worst breakfast selection I've ever seen anywhere. The 'fresh' fruit looked old - and was brown. The day they had pancakes, I had those. Ate muffins on another day. I generally stuck to eating one item for breakfast. The rest of it was so unappetising. There is no proper coffee - a container with some coffee powder for you to make your own cup - or PAY to use some old machine. Rather have the tea instead of being disappointed. As for the cereal selection - it was a joke. They also charged you 3AED for water - yet across the road at the supermarket it will cost you 1AED. You're better off having a more satisfying breakfast in your apartment by buying stuff at supermarket - your own cereal etc.
Lastly, the service. It was terrible - almost non-existent. I don't think they care much about how they come across. My sister asked for an iron 3 times and it still didn't arrive. Only when housekeeping knocked on the door by chance, he could help.
There were issues with the key not working and it had to be calibrated again, which still didn't work. That aside, if you called for any issue, they would not consider it priority. You have to call and call again.
So the choice is yours if you want to stay here - great location, average rooms but terrible breakfast and service.
