We found this place via booking.com and were greeted and welcomed by charming host and gent, Andrei of AC Pearl Holidays Dubai.
Literally round the corner from the famous twisty, Cayan Tower, located 1.5Km from Dubai Marina Mall and 2km from “The Walk” at JBR. Tiger Tower apartment, Marina Pinnacle offers air-conditioned budget accommodation and complimentary WiFi.
Excellent, central location for Dubai Marina, safe, near Tram and Metro. In the Marina Pinnacle with 24hr security. It’s a high rise (67 floor tower) mostly residential however there are many apartments available for holiday lets via AirBnB or other platforms like booking.com. Own parking space for a hire car is available underground in the basements, however beware of the tight turns navigating the car park.
Competitive and affordable price for a one bedroom apartment near Dubai Marina, that is big enough for two queen sized beds.
Many supermarkets near the apartment, Carrefour is round the corner. Good views from balconies. Apartment is about 2km from Marina mall and 6km from Mall of Emirates.
The apartment offers an outdoor pool and indoor pool, gym, and sauna. However the elevators can be slow and sometimes crowded. Loads of Taxis parked outside the building entrance. There is a sea view from balcony, but it’s now mostly obscured by new developments and the never ending Dubai construction.
Living room/diner is big enough to have an extra queen sized bed which was perfect for our daughter’s to enjoy whilst allowing the grown ups some rest and relaxation in the separate bedroom. Nice big TV in lounge, washing m/c and usual modern conveniences like microwave, toaster, kettle, in Kitchenette. Complimentary bottled water and Alokozay green/black tea kindly provided.
Things to note: Don’t double park outside building whilst checking in, even for 5 mins else you risk a fine from passing police cars (like we almost did!). Also note that if you lose the building access key card it is very expensive to replace (AED 500) plus Security may stop your re-entry (they are very strict). The apartment was thoroughly serviced and cleaned by a big team from AC Pearl Holidays twice during our two week stay.
Facilities/decor slightly tired, but remember its a serviced, family budget apartment, so don’t expect 4 star luxury, however the host (Andrei) and location are definitely 5 star.
Great value for money and best location, so if you are not too fussy and want a safe comfortable base to explore the Marina and Dubai, this apartment is recommended.
