Hi Guys,

Does anyone know of where you can rent an apartment within a hotel? I know of Bonnington, but are there any others in Central London? ideally around 100k mark.

cheers

Assume you mean Dubai?

Lots of hotel apartments

Auris have at least 4 in Tecom, Barsha etc

Gloria hotel

Dusit Residence

Ascot

Tulip Inn

Come to mind

Cheers fella. Have you stayed in one of these?

They normally come full furnished right? I've been getting advice that it's cheaper to move into a hotel apartment rather than rent one out. My budget was around 80-90k for 2bed, but if i can get a fully furnished to agood standard at 100k circa in a good location, then I prefer that.

I am trying to find something close to Jumeriah / JLT / Marina / AL Wasl road.

Any other recommendations, please let me know.

Thanks for help.

Yes sorry meant Dubai.

So all these offer long-term rent? do you have an idea of what the minimum commitment is? (6 months, 12 months, etc) and any ideas of prices for 2bed.

ta!

Stayed at the Dusit for one month and colleague stayed at an Auris for a couple of weeks. Dusit was around 20k AED per month Auris was about 500 AED a night but probably less for longer stays. Really depends on what you want level you want.

I have stayed my 1st month at Nuran Serviced Residences in Marina. Relocation agency paid for it. Great service, good location, great apartments...
just to add... my cost was 10k AED for 700sqf studio (42" lcd, full amenities cooker, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, laundry machine) for 1month with included parking space, gym and internet access

Why don't you simply drop them an email with a request for a quote based on everything you've just told us? I'm sure you'll get a faster and definitely more accurate response from the booking dept of the hotel, than from forum members.

Sports city
 
Anyone has experience with Sports City buildings?
Any particular suggestions?

My first year in Dubai is coming to an end and with the landlord wanting even more money than the 70k I am paying now for 1br in the greens because of this new supposed re "miniboom", I am seriously considering cheaper places since I have a car and basically stay at home just to sleep... i have seen places as low as 30to40k fully furnished in sports city....

I am considering dso and discovery gardens as well, after all many of my colleagues working on the shop floor finds themselves pretty fine there and have decent houses, but the traffic and the uncovered parking are a bummer ...

If you have any tip let me know

Sport City: evita :-) only places really finished seem villas in Victory Heights, the rest is one finished building every 10 in construction... for the same money you can find better in Silicon Oasis, assuming you are looking for something along the Emirates Road...
For Discovery Garden only thing I know is that most of the pools are either empty or still not in function but better if anyone living there replies.

The landlord isn't allowed to raise your rent for the second year if you're only in your first year of the lease. The rent must stay the same, according to the law.

Even after the second year the landlord is only allowed to raise the rent by 5% if the current rent is more than 25% below market value.

Still, I can see the advantage of wanting something even cheaper than 70K. Look at Silicon Oasis. 40K will get you a decent one bedroom comparable to a one bedroom in the Greens. Unlike a few years ago DSO is coming into its own with a range of shops and restaurants opening up and like the Greens there's a fair amount of greenery. Plus it's only 20 minutes from anywhere in Dubai.
