too expensive for simple room bad not good without service and flooded roads in a bad areaGenuine Expedia guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to the Emirats Mall"
We spend good time in a such a good place, but just one problem it's not really easy to find this place! So before to go print a map, because taxi drivers don't know ! But in general everything is perfectGenuine Expedia guest review
very difficult to find because Dubai doesn't have street signs. Close to Emirates mall so easy to get to "Hop on Bus"Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dont promote Spelendor hotel"
Area was great very close by to a lot of touristic stuffs. But staff and operationally really weak.I end up fight for everything which I already mentioned before I even got there. They were kind and etc but really really frustrated me.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great value for money"
So far the hotel is clean new and rooms are ok ,nearby Mall of Emarites and lot of retail shops it was a good stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"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.

"2 bedroom apartment"
This hotel apartment was a very good deal for the location and stay. We had a nice 2 bedroom hotel apartment. The master bedroom was big and comfy with a large bathroom. The second bedroom had very narrow twin beds and a small bathroom, but overall the unit was comfortable with very good location to MOE.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"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.. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel Splendor Dubai - Al Barsha"

"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"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!

"Bon rapport qualité-prix"
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.

"NOTHING SPLENDID ABOUT SPLENDOR"
04/20/15 everlovin Dublin, Ireland
We booked and paid in full in advance for a 2week stay here..Big mistake..I don't know why bookings have this on their listings.We booked a 2bed 'deluxe' apt for 4 adults and a 12 year old.When we went to the apt there was room to sleep 4 but no room for an extra bed and only plates etc including a dining room table for 3...when we rang down the moved us up "2 LEVELS" to a premier room which in fairness was bigger but only just.No seating at dining table for 4..so we took it in turnes. The kettle didn't work and there was only one socket for the kettle,toaster,and microwave so it was out with one and in with the other.In fairness they replaced the kettle.The washing machine was also broken ..and fixed as was the fridge..after we had to throw out everything as it had all gone off as we hadn't realized it wasn't working as it was when we got there..that was also fixed but broke down 2days before we left so just kept the milk in the freezer.We didn't use the hob in case!!There is a line over the bath which is for drying the clothes but we bought a clothes horse for the balcony which we had to sweep first.The main bathroom stank of urine so we had to bleach the whole place before we could use it. The decor is very old and the floor rugs so bad in the seating area and bedroom that we rolled them up for our stay..they were really badly stained.. The paint was falling off the walls at floor level so a sign of damp. The staff were friendly enough at times but the "security"guards left a lot to be desired..They would watch you struggle with the door with hands full and never open the door for us. We were in the front of the building and there is a coffee shop across the road and from 6am all you hear is beeping cars waiting to be served in their car..very annoying.. There isn't any swimming pool here..which is a blessing as I couldn't imagine what it would be like. We won't be staying here again ..
"Very decent and at a decent price"
04/19/15 Debbie1990nau Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
For Dubai it's placed at a very good price. Apartaments are a good size, clean. If you want to cook, you can do it. The kitchen is big and full of accessories. Bed was comfortable, bathroom efficient. The area is ok, not lots to do but 10 min taxi ride to other places :)
"Excellent, convenient and fantastic price."
12/05/14 Ashy_275 Glasgow, United Kingdom
Stayed for a week with one friend. Check-in not until 2pm but due tour flight we got to the hotel around 10am. Receptionist was very friendly and helpful with no issues to us showing up early. She also upgraded us from our studio suite to a one bedroom apartment as our room was not ready yet. Was pleasantly surprised, it is fairly spacious - although not massive - with a lounge, kitchen, toilet and then the bedroom with en-suite. There were a few issues of the en-suite door being so stiff you couldn't close it properly and also the fridge not actually working. But other than that, all good. All utensils and appliances provided as well as toiletries and towelling. Housekeeping available every day too. The hotel was very peaceful as well. Very conveniently located with lots of take-aways and restaurants in the streets nearby and also just a 5-10 minute walk to Mall of The Emirates and Ski Dubai. The mall also has a large Carrefour supermarket so if you wanted to use the apartment as more of a home for the duration of your visit, you can easily get everything you need from here eg food, toiletries, clothes etc. the mall is also attached to the metro so you can hop on and get to other destinations very easily. The only problem we had with this hotel is that when we told taxi drivers "Splendor Al Barsha" they never knew where it was. We ended p having to tell them "Armada Al Barsha" which is the hotel next door so that they could drive us home otherwise we would never be able to explain. Overall, highly impressed with this apart-hotel, highly recommend and will definitely stay on future visits. Look forward to returning.
"Brand new and fantastic room "
11/29/14 Roverfive Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
I stayed here for 1 night with my fiancée after a very long tiring day and the lady on reception gave us fast check in and we asked for a late check out and she gave 1 more hour as free of charge Room was really nice and nice bed Worth the money Thank you and keep it up
"Would stay here again!"
11/16/14 charnevb Doha, Qatar
We chose this hotel as we didn't want to pay for all the hotel amenities that we usually never use. We initially booked a studio apartment but upon check-in, were upgraded to a one bedroom apartment. The apartment is only big enough for 2 people, maybe with a small child. The kitchen is sufficient but has no cutlery or crockery - I would suggest they fit out the apartment with the basics as few people would go out and buy these things if they only stay for a few nights. The bed was heavenly and the bathroom spacious, it also had a guest wash room and a small living room. Overall the place was really clean with modern new furniture. Wifi was free. I would definitely book this hotel again.
"Nice place to stay"
The area is very good to stay in Dubai. Very easy to book even they had good price in last minute. You can get there with taxi and if you would like to travel in the city you can even use the metro line too. The rooms are clean and the staff is helpful. Even that we missed some small items like adapter for electricity or sponge in the kitchen we liked this place. Wifi connection was perfect. I am sure we will use this place to stay next time.
"Excellent, would 100% stay again."
Stayed here for a week with 3 of my friends, and was completely overjoyed with the level of service we received. The reception staff were always smiling and had a 'can do' attitude, nothing was too must trouble for them. Rooms were cleaned with fresh towels everyday. On the first day we arrived in the morning but our superior room was ready until 2pm, so the reception staff offered us a smaller room so we were able to have a shower and get changed, this was really helpful and convenient after 11 hours of travelling. Every time we came in or went out we were greeted with a smile and told how lovely we look. On the last day we had a late flight and were leaving for the airport at 10pm, as we checked out at 12pm we were allowed to leave our luggage in the hotel and when we returned we could come and have a shower and get changed in preparation for our long journey back to the UK. The manager of the hotel also spend half an hour ringing us a taxi that could fit us all in with our 4 big suitcases and for a good rate. Overall this hotel is extremely friendly, clean and welcoming and we will all return next year! Would recommend to anyone. 10/10
"Cramped Up space, needs big time sprucing up!"
05/04/14 hsmcanil London, United Kingdom
Apart from being opposite the famous Tea Shop in the Barsha Area, this well appointed Hotel is a bit cramped up as compared to some of it's siblings in the same area. The space needs to be better utilised / planned vis a vis the case goods in the room. Unfriendly Room Safe and the rooms have old mechanical locks. The staff was friendly after the intitial room change request. Surprisingly enough, the internet behaved at this place! Which has been otherwise a disappointment for me, having stayed in more than half a dozen Hotel Apartments by now. So overall, nothing much to write home about!
"Heel groot, maar helaas ook heel vies!"
02/03/14 hillie123 Aalsmeer, The Netherlands
Wij zaten in een appartement en in principe lijkt het prima als je binnen komt. Het is kil ingericht, maar ieder z'n smaak.. Alles wat je nodig hebt is er: een wasmachine, je kunt er koken, twee toiletten, een goed bed. Het wordt aangeboden voor twee personen en er staat ook maar één bed, maar je zou er prima met een heel gezin kunnen zitten! Helaas is het alleen ontzettend smerig. Alles plakt en overal kruipen beesten (o.a. kakkerlakken), daardoor hebben wij iets minder lekker geslapen is het goede bed. Service aan de balie is goed, ze zijn erg vriendelijk maar niemand heeft daar ooit van goed schoonmaken gehoord. Locatie is verder prima. Het is ongeveer 800 meter lopen naar het metrostation Burjurman, waarvan je heel Dubai gemakkelijk (en heel goedkoop) kunt bereiken.
