"Nice room, close to mall, practical shuttle servic"
Nice clean room, close location to Emirates mall, nice small restaurants in the neighborhood, practical shuttle service are the pros. The cons were bed quality, noizy work going on from early morning, long distance to old Dubai. Staff were just average - seldom had time for a friendly hallo.... Pool area is okGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, Clean and Pleasant"
This is nice clean and convenient hotel apartment. we stayed there 9 nights and had no reason for any complaint. The staff are nice and location is great. It would be nice if they had a travel desk for organizing tourism but you can do this at the next door hotels.Genuine Expedia guest review

"THE place to stay in Dubai!"
I looked into a hotel in Dubai for weeks before deciding on this one...As we intended to do 5 star activities we thought we'd save on the hotel but still we were looking for the best value for money/quality. As I was reading the great reviews we went ahead and booked four nights in March and we don't regret it! As soon as we arrived we received a four […] star service, got even upgraded into a lovely one bedroom apartment which was cleaned every day. The breakfast was ok (room for improvement maybe?) but even that was not a problem as everything else was perfect... The strength of this hotel and what makes the difference (as the competition in Dubai is quite strong) is probably the size of the rooms and value for money but above all its staff... The best service I've ever had and as we have friends there we'll be visiting shortly again and will not go anywhere else than the Marmara... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, not great location"
Our stay at the Marmara was excellent. Friendly, helpful staff and the hotel was extremely clean. The only downside for us was the location. The shuttle to the beach took you to a beach with nothing on it including beds or shops! Literally nowhere to get a drink or good and you had to lie on the beach! Taxis are cheap so wasn't to bad and would recommend […] getting a taxi to the walk at jbr for a nicer beach with more atmosphere! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A solid hotel"
Helpful staff and clean room. Adequate wifi but not great. Balcony door didn't seal fantastically meaning some dust and noise from the nearby building site. A few small things would improve the hotel greatly, such as a bit of detergent for the washing machine to get you started, and some extra items in the kitchen like a tea towel to make it more useful. A […] bit of a hike from the Metro via the mall but always a taxi going past. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"wonderful experience of staying in Dubai"
We have wonderful experience with this hotel apartment during our stay 27-29/Dec/2014. We booked 2 bedrooms apartment with our two kids to celebrate our wedding anniversary and explore Dubai city. Our plane arrived early morning around 6 am on check in date. The check in staff has been so kind to let us check in early and upgrade us to 12 floor with […] the city view. During our stay, the staff in front desk have been so helpful for our queries, especially the Manager of the hotel ( always dress formal suite ) even offer us the left when we ask for the direction to the Emirates Mall (on 28 / Dec morning, although we decided to walk to experience the local community). In conclusion, The location of the hotel is convenient to beach ( by shuttle bus) and mall ( by walk in 10 mins or by shuttle bus); the rooms make you feel home away from home. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We are definitely come back to this hotel/ apartment for next year visit Dubai. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"EXCELLENT VALUE FOR ONE'S MONEY"
The apartment we were upgraded to was excellent!!! Master room with en-suite, a cloakroom with WC and hand basin next to the lounge. A kitchen fully equipped with a big fridge, washing machine, microwave and electric cooker. It has everything you can expect for a trouble free stay...One TV set in the master room and one in the lounge. Wi-Fi internet, […] one is given as many cards with usernames and passwords as devices you bring with you at the reception at the moment of the check-in. The speed of the connection is not lightning fast but it is OK to upload your pictures to the cloud, just be prepared to wait for a while. There is an extension lead with six universal sockets on one of the TV stand shelves , so no need to worry about adapters for your plugs. The members of the staff were very helpful and kind most of the time. There is a shuttle bus to the Mall and the beach but you have to check the schedule available at the reception if you want to use it to suit your needs. There are some small supermarkets nearby (Four to five minutes walk), a Lebanese restaurant few meters away (They even deliver to your room if you want to), laundries, grocery shops, etc. We went to a bar relatively close to the hotel, I had a pint of Guinness(£8) and my girlfriend had a pint of Stella Artois(£7), so be aware the prices of the alcoholic drinks are quite high, bearing in mind that that was not the most luxurious bar in the city, it was a good one but not five star Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"a good hotel"
a good hotel away from the center of duBai but the shuttle bus to emirates mall makes it easy if you have problem walking to the mall which is 10 to 15 minutes walk. some of the furniture needs immediate attention a lot of resturants close to the hotel and a lot of small stores if you need small things like milk, coffee, or food cans.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good stay. Stayed for 7 Nights. Was on a business trip where I had to travel towards Jabel Ali on a daily basis. This hotel is close by and there was no traffic to or from my work. Saying that, if we have to get into the city (Bur Dubai), I did experience crazy amount of traffic in the evenings. Other than that the hotel was quite comfortable, staff […] were decent, parking space is available and internet was provided. Food was very average. Recommended for business trips.

"STAY HERE!!! Look no further!"
Great stay, room service top notch. Apartments look much better in person and very conmfortable. Staff are very friendly and always willing to help with absolutely everything. Emirates mall a walk away, which connects to the metro. Free shuttle if u dont want to walk. Free shuttle to the beach also. Only tiny minor downside is the staff were not too […] clued up on 'things to do'.. But fair play, they still tried to assist where they could. Overall. Amazing stay. Location maybe isnt as lively as other parts closer to the beach, but is definitely where i'll be staying when i return next year. Everywhere is easily accessible from this hotel.

"Very good Value，these reviews are true"
Yes， I also got a free upgrade to a one-bedroom suite. The interior had recently been innovated， and you get free parking. You may wonder how this hotel could offer such great value in Dubai. Well， I found out one of the reasons， the condition of the towels and the bed sheet weren't really perfect. Given that， I would still come back and stay here […] again.

"СУПЕР ОТДЫХ !"
Замечательный отель ! Поехали, ориентировались на отзывы и не ошиблись. Сюда, действительно, хочется вернуться.отель очень понравился ! Отличный номер, спальня, гостиная, два санузла, кухня, где всё есть, всё продумано до мелочей. На пляж , в Моллы возят на автобусе или на микроавтобусе,в зависимости от количества человек.Еще и яблочки на пляж дадут, […] и зонтики, и полотенчики, и игрушки надувные для детей, супер! Очень понравилось, что есть ранний завоз на пляж - в 8.45, потом уже в 9.30. Отель расположен рядом с Эмирейтс Моллом, там же станция метро, что очень удобно. В Молле остановка экскурсионного автобуса по городу. Билет покупается на 24 часа, мы растянули экскурсионный маршрут на два дня. В 16 часов уехали в Дейру (старый район ), вечером вернулись домой, а утром продолжили осмотр города уже по побережью, поехали на Пальму в отель Атлантис (аквапарк) и в 16 часов опять на нем же вернулись в Молл, где уже ждал наш автобус из отеля. 5 минут и мы в отеле ! Все очень удобно. Порадовала очень душевная обстановка в отеле. Огромное спасибо Елене за советы и помощь. У вас очень хороший коллектив в отеле, спасибо вам.

The location of the Marmara Hotel Apartments suited us very well for family reasons. We had an excellent stay at this hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. The apartment was spotless, cleaned every day with a complimentary bottle of water. Our apartment was lovely and we received an upgrade on arrival to a one bedroom. Not all apartments have balconies, ours did not, but we were happy as we did not spend a lot of time in it. Free shuttle bus ran every two hours from 10 a.m. to 20.30 to the Mall of the Emirates and also to the beach hourly in the morning time. We only used this service once to the Mall. The pool area was lovely. We did not use any other service. We visited a lot of the attractions in Dubai, it is a gorgeous city with lots to see and do. No problem getting a taxi, and staff are very obliging to help if needed. The metro is very near from the Mall of the Emirates. In all would highly recommend The Marmara very reasonable, the staff could not do enough for you, beautifully decorated. Very new hotel, good choice made.
"A REALLY GOOD STAY"
04/27/15 dennisblackpool Blackpool, United Kingdom
A really lovely place to stay, our room was well appointed and spotlessly clean. The staff were super courteous and very helpfull. I really don't know if it is well situated in Dubai in general but it totally suited our needs. The beach and some of the attractions are visited by the hotel shuttle service as is the local hyper Mall. It's a short walk or cheap taxi ride to the local metro station and this opens the whole of Dubai for exploration. We had a building site outside our windows but everywhere you look in Dubai there is a building site so I suppose you will get one wherever you stay. It was not a problem and didn't spoil any thing for us. I wouldn't say we will be back in Dubai any time soon, not really who we are, but if we do get back there the Marmara will be at the top of the list for places to stay. Thank you Marmara
"Quality unpretentious hotel offering real value for money"
04/10/15 LyeCon Swindon, United Kingdom
We have just left Dubai, after a very pleasant weeks stay in the Marmara Hotel. Located in Al Barsha, a central city area, the hotel sits in a built up area comprising of other hotels, businesses and restaurants. Entering the hotel reception, guests are given a warm welcome whilst admiring the tasteful interior. Although lacking the wow factor of the beach hotel locations, the Marmara provides excellent value for money and in a handy location to reach the many attractions Dubai has to offer. The Mall of the Emirates is an easy 10 minute walk away, and taxis are frequent, passing in front of the hotel every few minutes. We stayed in Room 707, a good sized end apartment with a separate living area, and a well appointed bedroom with a huge and comfortable King bed to sleep in. There is a large balcony, facing the rear street, although the views are not much to love, with just large high rise buildings for company. The view from the rooftop offers far a far better outlook over the city, with the chance to swim in the outdoor pool to cool off. Inside the apartment has a quality feel to it, and still seems new, as the hotel was built just 3 years ago. A small kitchen allows for self catering, and a washing machine for the convenience of having fresh clothing. The hotel restaurant has a good menu, and very reasonably priced for a hotel, but there are so many nearby restaurants to tempt any guest looking for something varied. There are pros and cons to the location, but Dubai is so widespread, and staying anywhere else will also involve travel. For us personally, the Marmara was great, having an apartment of the size and quality would cost far more elsewhere.. Taxis are cheap and plentiful, and we visited many of the attractions deemed to be essential to tourists, without breaking the budget. As a seasoned traveller, the Marmara fulfils much of my list of accommodation essentials, and I would certainly recommend it to others.
"Really good value for money and great place to stay"
04/01/15 Dmitry M Baku, Azerbaijan
I travel to the United Arab Emirates and other countries quite often, which helps me to identify and recommend really good hotels, and I can surely recommend Marmara Hotel Apartments as a really good place to stay and good value for money, especially for a short or medium-term family trip to Dubai. The hotel is conveniently located, walking distance from the biggest mall in Dubai (Mall of the Emirates), the hotel is very clean, good modern furniture and other facilities in rooms, very attentive and professional personnel.
3 bedroom apartment was very comfortable for our party of 8. Unit was quite clean. Window curtains weren't though. Very respectful and friendly hotel staff. They helped book a 5 star dhow cruise (the 3rd and best I've been on in Dubai). Thanks guys! Very close to the Mall of the Emirates (walking distance, actually). Will definitely be staying at this place during future visits to Dubai.
03/20/15 Waleedol Doha, Qatar
I was there only for couple of days, but I must say the following: Location - excellent (Mall of Emirates/Metro are walking distance, other places are very close, like Marina, Jumaira and Dubai Mall) Hotel - excellent (very clean, very quite, friendly staff, smooth check in/out, free parking and wi-fi) *I got upgraded to a better room for free as well. I highly suggest this hotel, especially if you want to have value for money, and also to see Dubai. Thank you to hotel staff and management!

The apartment are average design, the rooms are clean and customer service is good, I like the location very convenient, close to mall of emirates, sheik zaid and alkhail roads. The price is ok. Lots of restaurants available around to try and enjoy.
"Very nice place"
02/23/15 BethinKuwait Kuwait City, Kuwait
Over all, this place was very nice. It's apartments in the hotel setting. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. You can exchange currency there. Their menu was nice and had plenty of variety. The location is in Barsha, and they have regular shuttles to the Mall of the Emirates. They have a pool, but when I was there we experienced a 48 hour dust storm, so no pool for me. Highly recommended. WIFI is provided by giving you a 24 hour password and log in.
"A wonderful stay"
02/23/15 Kunal A Mumbai
We stayed in these apartments after going through the reviews on tripadvisor, we were very happy with the stay and the service. We had booked 2 studio apartments but were upgraded to 2 one bedroom suites. The staff were very cooperative I must say. They also provide free shuttle services to jumeirah beach and mall of emirates ( nearest metro station) which is a 10 min. Walk from the apartments. The one bedroom suites was very spacious with a fully equipped kitchen, small balcony and a drawing room. Overall with the price it offers it is definitely cheaper than other 3-4 stars hotels in Dubai with an equivalent quality and service. The only disadvantage is that it is a bit far from old Dubai ( meena bazar), takes 20-30 mins by metro. Looking forward to stay here again!
02/15/15 AzTee Johannesburg, South Africa
Stayed here for 3 nights while attending a conference in Dubai. Firstly this hotel is not known to the Emirates chauffeur service so it took almost an hour to find it from the airport. We had the same experience with various taxis until we explained to them to get us to Ramada, Al Barsha and this hotel was a few steps away. The apartments are very basic. The rooms and bathrooms are of a budget level hotel, pillows, towels, amenities, etc. We had a two bedroom unit. One of the rooms were back to back with an outside room of the hotel where the noise level was just too high to get a decent sleep. When we asked to see the manager, the clerk asked what was the problem and he would take care of it. We requested for a change in rooms. That night after returning from the conference I was surprised to find that there was no room change when I enquired, I was told the hotel is full. The wifi system is administered by issuing scratch cards which work sometimes, for 24 hours. The only thing you get is a complimentary bottle of water daily. I would rather pay a few dollars more and stay in a hotel. When I calculated the cost, it did cost as much as two hotel rooms anyway. Will not stay here again.
