0.73km from Shawerma TwistI first stayed at the Al khoory Hotel apartments in 2011. After eight years I returned in 2019 and over the next 18 months or thereabouts spent many months as a resident. I am a fairly cut and dried sort, have plain enough tastes and requirements but for me the following are important: 1. Space - The one bedroomed apartment was excellent; plenty of room. - It was clean too; the room service staff do a great job 2. Peace and quiet - Dubai is a busy spot and there can be a lot of noise from outside construction work. The rooms at this hotel are very well sound-proofed. The only issues I had were with the odd outlier of unreasonably loud and noisy guest. When I complained on such occasions, these were taken seriously and handled expediently and favourably. 3. Wifi/ equipment The wi-fi has improved greatly as the management committed to an overhaul and upgrade of capacity. I could have no complaints about the functionality over the course of the summer of 2020 despite serious demands as a result of COVID 19 restrictions/lockdowns. The kitchen, living space and bathroom facilities are excellent. 3. Fitness facilities The facility has an excellent, spacious and well equipped gym with plenty of free weights. I would say it is the best facility of its kind that I have encountered in any hotel/ apartment type accommodation in the UAE. 4. Personable service The staff and management are courteous, polite and efficient. It helped develop a strong rapport and sense of loyalty with the place over time. Although I can be blunt and contrarian at times, they always attended to my concerns and requests with professional and polite etiquette at all times. 5. Parking There is extensive underground parking divided into 2 levels at this facility; easily accessible/ safe/ and well attended. 6. Covid 19 regulations and guest safety is treated very seriously and regulations were adhered to diligently. Undoubtedly I plan to stay here again when I return in the not too distant future.
