"Abidos Review Jan 2015"
The was polite. However I noticed persons of Arabic nations were treated slightly better. When I waited for service behind another customer I got no greeting until front desk person was free. Arabic customers were asked and had their questions answered while I was being assisted however. The room was clean and the cleaning staff was polite and accommodating. The bed I had was quite uncomfortable. I was actually in severe pain when I left after my stay. I did not notice due to my jet lag that my troubles sleeping were due to the mattress right away. Could not adjust the temperature in the room. Luckily I like it a bit cold.

"Pretty OK but a bit basic kitchen-wise"
The room was fine. One or two stains on sofa but not really a problem. Biggest problem was kitchen. Nice and clean but lacking. Only two knives and two forks. OK for breakfast but hard to make much more than a stir fry for other meals. Just two hobs and a microwave. But I would stay again. Hotel should offer guests more utensils for a deposit. And basic necessities like salt and pepper!

"Nice facility, good location - would stay again"
The 2 spacious bedrooms easily slept our family of 5. Cool, clean, and comfortable. Relatively quiet urban residential neighborhood with a very convenient, reasonably stocked grocery store directly across the street. Decent gym upstairs and a nice but small pool area on the roof. Several well priced cafes, restaurants, and fast food within easy walking distance. Mall of the Emirates was only 10 minutes walk away. Metro station was about 20 minutes walk away (10 to the mall, 10 through the mall). Easy to get a taxi right outside the front door. It served as a good home base for getting out and exploring Dubai each day of our visit. Overall the Abidos worked out very well for us.

"Good hotel, affordable price"
We had a double bedroom appartment, which is very big. There is a washing machine, which is not indicated in the room description. The photoes of the hotel has been taken some years ago, when the hotel opened. Now a bit older, the carpets and the sofa are not clean, otherwise the room is ok. Local tax is not counted in this website, additionally 100 drhs for an extra chil bed will be locally added. The Emirates Mall is in 10 min walk, opposite there is a good store and pizza place. 5 min walk Lulu supermarket. Taxi from DWC airport is 80-100 drhs. Approx 20 EUR. 7 seater is 15 drh more + 2 Eur. Cash in dirham only!!!! No card accepted!!! Use only officially painted taxi. Other "metered" taxis sometimes count double fees. In taxis you can ask the price of any programs, like Safari, Abu Dhabi tour, etc, for 700 drhs or less for one car, full of passengers. Big cars awaible. Taxi is very cheap, 1 km, 0,3 Eur, 1,5 drhs.

"Hotel apartment, large rooms and basic facilities"
Good alternative to a hotel stay, especially for families with children, where you have much more space (one bedroom, one living, one kitchenette with all facilities, 2 bathrooms). Internet access is complimentary. Conveniently located: 10min walk to Mall of the Emirates, across the street from a grocery store and several restaurants, 30min by taxi to the airport. The breakfast is very limited in choice, but good enough for a business traveller.

This was my second stay in Abidos Hotel. The room is very comfortable and within walking distance to the Emirates Mall and several good restaurants. The room is clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet leaves a lot to be desired and you can do better for the money in any of the surrounding restaurants. I also had a problem with the water shower pressure being very weak on a couple of days. In general, this hotel is very good for the price.

"Corp Exec"
Great place to stay in Dubai. Close to Emirates Mall, train, restaurants, and convenience stores. The apartment is large with 2 bathrooms, a living room, and a kitchen. It even has a clothes washer/combo dryer. That was unusual and convenient. It is nice to be able to wash clothes while traveling. There is a refrigerator, microwave and toaster as well. It is well-decorated also. It has 2 televisions and free wired Internet in the apartment. There is free wireless in the lobby. The bed was large. The apartment was quiet and clean. The staff was awesome. They made sure someone was a step ahead of me with my luggage and taxis. The price was just right. This is not a room, it is an apartment. I felt like a Corporate Executive.

"A great hotel for families."
It's a very good hotel for families. First because it is spacious and the fact it has a kitchen with utensils is a huge plus for those who have children or even for those who want to take care of their own food. The location is also good. It is located in the middle of the city and 10 minutes walk from the subway. This helps you to go everywhere for a reasonable taxi fare.

Convenient location. Walking distance to Mall of Emirates and Metro Stop. Surrounding neighborhood has a lot of restaurants/shops. 5 minute cab to Burj Al Arab/Jumeirah Beach. 25 minutes to Downtown Dubai or New Dubai. Hotel is a legitimate 4-star property for about a 3-star price. Rooms are big and comfortable. My only complaints are a small seating area for the pool and lack of wireless internet in the rooms.

"Great hotel for couple or small family."
I picked this hotel since the gym looked good on the photos, and I wanted a bit more space since I was staying for a week. It was almost too much space for one person. Two toilets, a bathtub AND a shower. Living room, kitchen and large bedroom. The sofa in the living room could easily fit a sleeping adult as well. The gym was nice and spacious with water and towels, and it was quite empty most of the day. It has a full set of dumbbells up to 2x 20kg, and a machine for bench press, cable rows, lat pulldowns and leg extensions. There are also threadmills, a stationary bike, a stair machine and an elliptical machine. The only disappointment was the barbell bench, which only had 2 x 20 kg free weights. There's a pool on the roof near the gym to relax in afterwards. It was a lot more crowded than the gym though, and this is a family friendly hotel, so there were lots of kids there.

"Fantastic"
We stayed for 4 nights during a faily trip to Dubai. Whilst not very close to a metro station this isn't too far away, circa 10 minute walk to the Mall of the Emirates and then to the metro through there. Theres a supermarket and pizza place across the road that are both open till the early hours of the morning, the supermarket reopens early. The hotel is excellent, the staff are friendly and very helpful (even at 1am in the morning when the washing machine was still going after 3 hours and they came to show me how to use it). Nothing was too much trouble and we were always greeted by a smile, no matter what time of day it was. We rented a 2 room apartment and having a kitchen, full size fridge, washing machine etc was really useful. No dish washer or cooker, but there are two electric heating rings - but if you need this with all the choices for eating in Dubai then I'd be surprised. Local food outlets were good and cheap, and definately cheaper than eating in the malls etc. Ideal location for many different reasons (even with the walk to the metro). Location feels safe, no matter what time of day or night. The roof top pool is great, clean and well maintained and not busy at all when we stayed (last week of May). Pick up pool towels on your way from the lift to the pool, sign them out and return them as you leave. Lots of seating options by the pool and never an issue. Didnt use the jacuzzi but would have loved to.

Terrible stay. They charged me for 3 weeks of internet, whilst I was only there for 2 weeks and have still not reimbursed my company for the difference. I was running to the airport so they said they would fix it, but they still have not. The rooms also are completely empty much different looking than the pictures. Good if you are cramming in 20 people, like I saw was the case with large groups of people in some of the rooms. Very disorganized place, will never stay there again.

"One Night Only"
I stayed only for a night to celebrate my birthday. As Abidos is an apartment hotel they have kitchen facilities. Although we ordered most of the foot, it still helped to have kitchen utensils to prepare quick fixes and warm food. Three of my friends came to join me for dinner and place was spacious to receive them all although they didn't sleep in the hotel but living room was well furnished and very stylish. There were no problem with receptionists too as they are helpful. Just remember to tell your guests if they are visiting you to bring an ID as reception will have to photocopy it for security reason. Overall a good experience. Close to Mall of Emirates and taxi is easy to get.

Sleepless nights because of the hotels faulty alarm system which went off crazy with a loud noise and kids were crying and it was very terrifying fire alarm, we complained at the reception but they said we are checking the fire alarm, but it went off every day, I asked for a refund but was not entertained, overall very bad experience. Not staying in abidos ever again, it ruined our vacation with kids with a fire alarm scare.

We have stayed here about 4 times now. We've enjoyed it every time. It's spotless clean, the apartments are very spacious. Staff are friendly, they just don't communicate very well. E.g. Receptionist agrees to give us a late check out, but forgets to communicate this to the others, so they call and disturb you. Or you extend your stay and they call to remind you that check out is at 12 when in fact you're not leaving until the next day. Apart from this they are wonderful.

Also,the giving of towels small & medium was not consistent daily,'coz sometimes we're given 2 small face towels,the following day,the medium one,since we're couple,one time we're given one big towel only,pls take of this.

"Lots of room, a little worn however"
Overall this hotel/apartment room was nice, but not quite worth a return visit from us. A little away from any tourist attractions, in a community that was full of construction. However it was very close to Emirates Mall, a big shopping facility that also offered metro public transportation, (highly recommended) that took you many tourist sites. The room was large with 2 bathrooms, very nice main bath with shower and tub, king size bed, separate living room area with a sofa that was quite worn. Decent galley kitchen and dining table, but all a little too worn for us. Leather would allow for better use on the sofa and hard wood floors would wear better for the use this facility gets. Balcony was small and no real view other than the construction joing on. Very nice but small pool,area on rooftop and well equipped sauna steam shower change room. Overall a nice facility, just a little worn and far away for our taste.
