Sufficient

First of all, there are 8 Golden Sands Hotel Apts!! This information should have been given. The Bell boy is more helpful than the people at the reception. All information was given by the bell boy. The apt was adequate, nothing fancy, hence the price.

Good place, good location

Good, clean hotel. Showing its age a little, but well worth the price. Ate buffet breakfast at Golden Sands 3 (adjoining) and also arranged tours through the travel desk located there. Enjoyed the free internet computers. It is about a 20-26 minute walk from the hotel to Dubai Creek and the souks, abras, and other attractions. Enjoyable walk several times. Would stay there again; not luxury or glitzy, but well served the purpose of a clean, comfortable, convenient place to stay.

Great Location and good shopping around!

Not only a good place to stay and save some $ you also can save buying your own food at this great gourmet supermarket nearby SPINNEYS(we only see happy ex-pats around shopping) In your apart/hotel you have a nice and clean kitchen with all the aplicances needed for a good fast food. I definitely would recommend this place for a budge travel like me...because I am already considering go for my next trip far away in this planet. Ciao !!!!

It was Alright...

We had to stay here for a couple of weeks, the room was not very clean, seemed like they hadn't cleaned it when we first arrived; staff is pretty friendly and always ready to help, but I do wish they'd clean the rooms properly...

Anniversary vacation on a Budget

Golden Sands Hotel Apartment #3 is well located with lots of facilities within 10 mins walking. Staff was friendly, but had VERY poor communication with each other, as they did not brief the new staff on duty. So sadly be prepared to repeat things at least 3 times to different people.Car rental and Tours for all Golden Sands are at #3 so that was very convenient for bookings. Still shop around before you book.For Currency exchange, go to exchange Bureau across from Ramada Hotel (about 5-7 mins walk) as rates are very low at Hotels.for example hotel gives for US$1 = 3.50 Drhms but at Bureau US $1 = 3.65DrhmsThe Beds...oh the BEDS...Worst night sleep I ever had. If you are over 6" tall forget it...they call a double bed ...KING Perfect if you want low key accommodation, self-catering facilities, and then use your funds for tours and stuff. For $54 pn for 1 Bed Studio we got what we paid for.Watch how you travel in metered taxi. If you will be doing multiple trips and stops may be more economic to Hire a luxury taxi (Lexus)at the front of hotel. For a safe, friendly and reliable driver for City tour and hourly trips, we travelled with [...] 971 508 194 292, He is EXCELLENT and accommodating. If you contact him with your arrival date he will meet you at the airport and take great care of you and your family.Happy travel folks.....:-)

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Self-Catering is definitely more economical if you have young ones or on a Budget. For short journeys use metered taxis and don't be afraid to ask locals for cheap resturants with good food.

Golden Sands Hotel experience

The experience was an average one although a little dissapointing and in-convenient. The hotel room was of a good size, clean and regularly serviced. However the furniture was quite old the kitchen utilise (sink, fridge etc) were quite old and not modern. The hotel is certainly very close to old Dubai (Bur Dubai) but it's very far from the major attractions that people go to Dubai to see. The restaurant is quite good and swimming pool is great. Taxis are near enough impossible to get and you really have to wait a long time for a taxi to come outside the hotel. Once you get a taxi, they do charge a lot of money so really it's more value for money by paying extra for a better hotel on Sh Zayd Road. However if you are on a tight budget or you have booked late in a busy period and cannot get booked into another hotel (our situation as we could not book at any other hotel) the this hotel is good as a last resort. My honest suggestion would be to spend a little extra and stay at a hotel on Sh Zayd Road where you can easily get taxis and you can walk down to some nice shops and it's really the start of a wonderful experience in Dubai. Especially with the metro system opening soon, it will be much cheaper to get the metro which will be accessible from hotels on Sh Zayd road

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Take the MegaBus tour which costs around £25 per person for a whole day. You can jump on and jump off at various attractions. You can do both Old Dubai and New Dubai routes. Really will save you a lot of money on taxis.
