    "The cheaper option:" Serviced Hotel Apartments


    Don't expect lavish luxury and 5-star service here, but nevertheless the Pearl Residence seems extremely popular with overseas travellers that refuse to fall victim to Dubai's notoriously high hotel prices.
    I've never stayed here, but I used to live around the corner (so I stopped there and picked-up a brochure for all of you !) and have seen plenty of visitors of all nations and all ages stay here. Some friends of mine have stayed here for a couple of nights & confirmed that it’s very good value for money.

    You're in the centre of town; close to the Dubai Creek, the traditional Souks/Markets, Bur Juman Shopping Mall and even some nightlife. Finding a taxi is also very easy & convenient in this area, and there's also a supermarket ("Spinney's") nearby for your self-catering needs.

    Unique Quality: Pearl Residence has 56 One-bedroom apartments (Daily approx. US$ 150 in 2006) and 28 Studio Aparments (Daily approx. US$120 in 2006) each with airconditioning, CCTV, international phone & a safe (click on the picture to see the price list of 2006). There's also high speed access (ADSL) in your room. Daily Housekeeping services, 24-hour coffee shop as well as 24-hour Roomservice is available. You can use the rooftop swimming pool if you don't feel like driving to the beach (approx. 20 min distance by car) or if you're feeling energetic, have a work out in the gym. There are separate steam & sauna rooms for ladies and men. The breakfast is nothing special, but sufficient to fuel your metabolism until you can go elsewhere during the day.

    There's a small bar with pool tables, video games and juke box, but as you're so centrally located I'd recommend walking to some nearby nightspots, or simply hopping into a taxi and taking a 5-10 min drive to the hotels on Sheikh Zayed Road for a large variety of restaurants, bars & clubs!

    Directions: LOCATION MAP:

    It is 15min drive from the Dubai Int'l Airport & 10min from Dubai World Trade Centre (depending on traffic, of course!).

    Good value apartments in Bur Dubai.


    I stayed at the Pearl Residence Hotel Apartments for 8 nights in November 2005 during my third trip to Dubai (and my parents' first trip there).

    I'd previously stayed at the Orchid Hotel in Deira but this time, with my parents in tow, I wanted to find somewhere with bigger rooms and in a better location.

    After considerable amounts of time researching on the Internet, I decided that the Pearl Residence apartments looked like the best value for money. In part, this was because the large apartments are spacious enough to accommodate 3 adults, with my parents having the large en-suite bedroom and me having a bed in the enormous living room (with a separate en-suite bathroom) - this worked out considerably cheaper than booking separate double and single rooms elsewhere.

    The living room is well equipped with satellite TV, comfortable armchairs, a dining table, a coffee table and a very effective air-conditioning system (the air-con in the bedroom and living room are controlled individually).

    As well as the large living area, master bedroom and two bathrooms, the apartment also had a fully-equipped kitchen with a large fridge freezer, a washing machine, a microwave oven and all necessary cutlery, crockery and drinks making facilities.

    An excellent breakfast (including a choice of cereals, toast, omelettes, fried eggs, chicken sausages, fried potatoes, baked beans, mushrooms, curry dishes, noodles, fruit and cakes, fruit juices, coffee and tea) was included in the price and the extensive choice varied each day.

    Maid service is daily, including a change of bed sheets and towels.

    There is a safe deposit box in the wardrobe in the master bedroom.

    Unique Quality: There is a bar downstairs with a number of pool tables and games machines, and Internet access is available on a computer terminal in reception for a small charge (10 Dhs for 30 minutes).

    There is a roof-top swimming pool, sauna, steam bath and gymnasium.

    The hotel is located in Bur Dubai, just a short walk to the creek and just a short taxi ride to Sheikh Zayed Road. Numerous restaurants and shopping malls including the Bur Juman Centre) are within easy walking distance, while you'll never have any difficulty getting a taxi right outside the entrance - if there isn't already a taxi pulled up waiting outside, you'll be able to signal down a passing one in less than a minute! Not all taxi drivers are familiar with the hotel, so tell them that it's in the "Golden Sands area, opposite Silver Sands 2". Quite often, you'll still have to guide them in after several failed attempts to locate the hotel!

    The hotel runs a free daily shuttle bus to Jumeirah Public Beach (leaving the hotel at 10:15am and picking up again at the beach at between 2 and 3pm). Even if you're not wanting to swim on the public beach, it's worth taking the free shuttle bus and then jumping in a taxi from there to whichever beach you want to go to (you'll save on the taxi fare that way!).

    All of the staff were friendly and helpful, although at times they were a little too eager to try and convince us to sign up for an organised safari trip.

    Be careful in the lifts - if there's more than 2 of you in there, the door WILL try to close before everyone has managed to get out. I nearly got trapped every single time I exited the lift!

    An excellent choice of accommodation. Clean, spacious studios in a convenient location and relatively inexpensive in a city where budget accommodation is difficult to come by.

    Directions: In the "Golden Sands" area of Bur Dubai, a 5-10 minute walk to the creek and a 5 minute taxi ride to Sheikh Zayed Road.

    Dad and I shared a bed - a 1st in 15 years


    We spent 2 nights and this centrally located hotel in the City centre of Dubai.

    We were in a room above their pool room and so ended up with a smoky room every day. Also because we had booked a one bed room all we got was one bed, and the hotel refused to move us. So Dad and I shared a bed for the first time in 15 years.

    We did like the fact that all the rooms had a small kitchen - fridge, microwave and sink. This was helpful in saving on some meals. The small dining room that server breakfast was ok, though nothing to write home about.

    The rooms were clean, and the maids even washed the dishes which was nice.

    If you do stay there try and request a higher up room, and not over the pool room.

    Unique Quality: The hotel is close to some of the best shopping centres on this side of the creek. The hotel has a pool which is free to guests and included pool towels.

More about Pearl Residence Hotel

Pleasant stay

by phillarkins about Pearl Residence Hotel Apartments

. This hotel has spacious apartments with all appliances that you could need including washing machine, microwave, good size bathroom, dining area, kitchen, fridge, stove and good TV! I do need to emphasis the importance of the washing machine due to the heat; I seemed to need to change clothes on a regular basis due to the heat so this helped a lot. One thing that was a little strange was the pool which was located on the roof and could have doubled as a sauna as no covering from the sun. There was a spa and sauna room (why you needed one in Dubai I am not too sure but it is there if you want it). The service is fantastic and is not too far from the city centre and is about $35 Dh taxi ride to the Burj Al Arab. Breakfast has something for everyone but it is not extravagant.

Pearl Residence in Bur Dubai

by MrFrank

I going to Dubai from 3.feb to 7. feb with a friend just for the weekend. I have been to Dubai once before, and I stayed in Hyatt Regence. This time we got a good deal from our travelagent i Norway for the Pearl Residence, but they didn't have any information about the hotel exept that i was a 4-star hotel. Found some information on the web, but it seems that there is no bar in the hotel..?.. Could anybody please give me some information about the hotel and the area around it. Thank you!

Hi there
Pearl Residence is more like a furnished apartment rather than a hotel and its a three star establishment. It seems they dont serve any alcoholic drinks. I leave you an URL which gives a lot of information about the pearl, its location and some pictures of it. The URL is:

Wish you a safe trip and happy holiday.
