"Un clean and pathetic room conditions"
A very pathetic experience, from poor customer service to poor room conditions. there is no cleanliness and the rooms are not at all maintained. from the moment I stepped inside the room I just wanted to leave the place. I am usually not a nagger but it was pretty bad. I should have paid more and stayed somewhere else. :(

"Splendor Al Barsha"
Good: Room was comfort. Good location, near Emirates Mall. Also there are many restaurants, markets, internet caffe, ... near hotel. Hotel has their own parking. Bad: Room itself was clean, but walls were dirty, curtain in bathroom was broken, Internet connection was not so good.

"Stay Somewhere else"
I stayed for two weeks - house keeping is rushed and not of an acceptable standard. The towels are sometimes not replaced even though the used ones are removed. Walls are mouldy and flaking paint and plaster - just not a nice experience.

"Cheap and Practical"
Splendor Hotel Apartments Al Barsha is a cheap and convenient option in Dubai. The location is good, near shops, restaurants and the Emirates Mall. The metro station is 5 minutes away. This is a second class stay, dont expect friendly and helpfull staff, you are pretty much on your own. They have very well equipped studios (washing machine, micro-wave, cutlery, fridge, stove, toaster, etc), which i found convenient. The bathroom is big, shower is great (preassure-wise). Sleep quality, is a bit below satisfactory. It is quiet, however the bed and pillows are not very comfy and the linen is, lets say, not soft. My overall impression is that it is a new, maybe refurbished place, that someone forgot to clean up decently. If you are an independent traveler, looking for something convenient and you dont mind the details, as in spotless cleaning, staff congeniality, coziness, room decoration, this might be a good option for you. A place to crash and not spend much.

Was nice to stop and relax before next flight. I expected there to be a restaurant for breakfast but there wasn't and was disappointed with this There was nothing close by to eat. Had to get a taxi to go further into city for food. The area is a bit quite. But overall the room was good and clean and nice to relax.

"Great location but bad hotel"
They advertised "washer/dryer" but in fact it was just a basic washing machine with spin dry function. The bathtub was without a plug. When I asked the receptionist for a plug so that I could have a soak in the tub, she simply shook her head and said "no, we don't have that", which I took to mean that the hotel doesn't allow soaking in tub. So why even bother with a bathtub then? Room wasn't cleaned properly for the 1st few days, and there was one day when it wasn't cleaned until around 9pm! What took the biscuit was that during our stay, there was a night when someone actually opened our room door at about 1am, supposedly to show a potential customer a room! Thank goodness we in the room were decently dressed and not asleep yet. Even so, that incident gave us such a big fright.

"Good location, bad hotel"
A very sad hotel for the price. I checked into the studio with a king bed (as booked) on the first night and was not happy to see that 2 single beds were joined to make a large one. Room was dated, paint peeling, none of the lamps worked. Kitchen did not have and tea/ coffee and no room service available (but stated on website). I was upgraded to a 1 bed apartment to find a similar situation. Space was good but ensuite toilet broken (not fixed), shower curtain and rail broken (not fixed), none of the lamps worked. Had to specially request housekeeping to put on new sheets. Overall a pathetic hotel that needs updating and fixing. Will definitely not return. Only redeeming qualities are good location and good wifi.

"Not recommended"
It was a little difficult to locate the hotel since it's not a very famous one. We spent 20 minutes circling the area as anyone whom we asked sent us in the wrong direction. This hotel is located behind Ramada and next to Armada hotel. That will help you get there quickly. The room looked very different from the pictures that I saw online. Maybe I was expecting too much. Anyway the walls had dirty marks on them.On our first night we noticed that the flush in the master bathroom was continuously running.We had booked a two bedroom apartment. The 2nd bedroom was for my parents who were to check in the next day. When they came over and went to use the bathroom we realized that the toilet was never cleaned before we checked in on the previous day. It had p marks on it. You would expect the room to be completely cleaned before check in. But that was not the case. Everyday the housekeeping would not clean the room until late afternoon (around 5pm). And they kept forgetting something or the other and had to be called in several times. The garbage can in the kitchen had a disgusting smell - as if it had not been emptied for several weeks. But this was only noticeable when we opened the can. The staff that we interacted with was extremely polite and tried to help whenever possible. The best part was the location. There is a restaurant across the street that scored well on everything that we ordered.

"Splendor Barsha is Splendid"
Nice hotel in a great location, surrounded by restaurants, shops, laundry services and within walking distance to the Mall of the Emirates. Good service, friendly, and willingness to help made the stay pleasurable. Rooms are comfortable and clean. We did not have hot water and immediately the maintenance dealt with the issue. Thumbs up. Only 2 issues although minor 1. shower curtain in our apartment length was insufficient so water all over the bathroom floor and secondly if you have a vehicle then to park in the basement you have to always alert the staff by beeping the horn or alight to go indoors and alert. Minor issues but all in all the price is definitely competitive and would definitely stay there again.

"Some what disappointed"
Having read positive reviews on the site I was happy to give The Splendor Hotel Apartments a go, but left feeling somewhat disappointed with the stay. On arrival at the room, 3 table lamps in the room - none worked and despite two requests were still not fixed by departure. Television did not work on arrival but at least security sorted …. had been unplugged! Kitchen was adequate, although I did not actually use, but did notice the equipment inside the cupboards did not match the inventory inside the cabinet doors. Stayed four nights. My room was not serviced during the day on one of these days, although the maid did ring at 1850 to ask if I wanted it done. Very strange! Two lifts - one not working. Positives - the room was clean, wardrobe space adequate for short stay, lots of hot water and a good shower pressure. Air con, good. Bed too hard for my liking but that is a personal taste.

"superb place with great staff"
the hotel though it is hard to find is a brilliant one. It had a very well furnished room with all the equipments fresh out of the box. the staff was also very friendly and helpful. I stayed there for two days at around 350AED per day (booked online) but when i wanted to extend my stay for an extra day and asked the manager for the same, he quoted me around 800AED per day which was very disappointing.. I am not sure why that was done but it felt weird and I did not want to spend more money that i spent in two days for one day more hence checked out..

"N'y allez que si vous n'avez pas le choix"
J'y ai passé quatre nuits. Le studio est bien équipé et fonctionnel, cependant la rue est bruyante (mosquée et bruits de voitures), l'emplacement est très éloigné du centre ville et pour prendre le metro la première station se trouve à vingt minutes à l'intérieur du mall Emirates, plus environ 30 à 40min de trajet et vous n'avez bien sur pas la garantie d'avoir une place assise. Le taxi vous prendra entre 40min et 1h et vous payerez l'équivalent de 20euros environ. Le service est vraiment nul, personne ne vous aide à porter vos baggages, la reception vous raccroche au nez alors que j'essayais d'avoir des indications précises à donner au taxi pour retrouver un hotel, inconnu des taxis. Le comble a été le vol de ma tablette et mon telephone. Quand je me suis plainte, ils l'ont discrètement remis au dessus de ma valise pendant qu'ils faisaient semblant de fouiller la chambre, par la suite, le directeur a fait tout son possible pour me prouver que son équipe était clean et que j'avais du me tromper. Au lieu des excuses, j'ai eu de la part d'une réceptionniste vraiment irrespectueuse un rapport stipulant que personne n'avait eu accès à ma chambre. Je ne le recommande pas, en sept ans de voyage sur Dubai, c'est le pire service que j'ai jamais reçu.

"Bon rapport qualité/prix"
L’hôtel d'aspect assez neuf, donne vraiment l'impression de luxe, tout est presque neuf, la chambre qu'on avait pris était propre, bien rangée, avec un confort vraiment plaisant pour le prix. L'accueil par contre m'a pas trop emballé avec un personnel qui ne prend pas la peine de se répéter si vous ne comprenez pas ce qu'ils disent, et par la même occasion ne vous renseigne pas sur les distractions de la ville car ils vous proposent juste de regarder tous les fascicules et autre dépliant mise à disposition gratuitement sur le comptoir. Par contre l’hôtel est mal situé, un peu trop loin de la sortie du métro pour vous y rendre à pied, en plus caché dans une petite ruelle il est difficile d'accès quand vous ne connaissez pas le coin, mais aussi trop près pour vous y rendre en taxi car la course ne leur rapporte pas assez!

Les +: Séjour agréable. Appartement correct, propre. Personnel aux petits soins. Ménage fait chaque jour. Proche du Mall of Emirates. Les -: Pour accéder au parking je devais souvent sortir de la voiture et aller à l'accueil pour demander l'ouverture car le garde n'était pas tout le temps à son poste. Descriptif du site Hotels.com: - Taxes de 70AED alors que j'ai payé 140AED. En fait c'est 70 AED par chambre et non par appartement (j'avais un appartement avec 2 chambres). @hotels.com: Merci de revoir vos informations sur votre site. - Il était aussi mentionné qu'il y avait 2 lits doubles et 2 simples dans l'appartement. Or il n'y avait qu'un lit double et 2 lits simples. Etant 5 j'ai dû demander un lit supplémentaire à l'accueil. @hotels.com: Merci de demander à l'hôtel de bien respecter le nombre de lits par rapport à la réservation.
