Default accomodation near sheikh zayed road

howdy everyone
currently negotiating a job offer and would appreciate some advice on housing area names or developments so that I can start my apartment hunting. We are a young married couple, looking for a clean 2 bedroom or more in a modern building with facilities eg pool, gym. ideally near/or easy access to the area near emirates hotel/tower on sheikh zayed road, looking at a budget of around 70K-80K per year or less if it can be found, please advice if this figure is realistic too. Budget permitting, we would prefer to be as close to work as possible as I don't want to drive in dubai if I can help it.

Thanks in advance

As far as I know you will not find a 2BR for less then 100K in that area, an option for you will be to look at Barsha around mall of emirates, there are plenty of 2BR available there that fit in your budget and you can take the metro to go to Emirates tower.

Hi,
not sure but I think it is correct that you will struggle to find a 2 bedroom close to DIFC for that price. The Greens, next to Al Barsha is also a good area to look. You can use metro to get to DIFC. advantage over Al Barsha/Tecom is that is if mostly finished constructionwise compared to the others.
As you can see I am from CH too..living in the Greens and also work in DIFC, but I drive.
Takes 15-20 min nowadays.

Cheers
L.

Can you guys tell me more about Al Barsha Area 3? I've been offered accommodation there by my employer, is it a nice area, nice apartments?
