This is my 2nd time staying at Agnes's place. It is still a good experience. Clean and cosy room and bathroom like last time. Agnes is as friendly and as accommodating as can be. She even invited me for a hot air balloon ride with her colleagues in celebration of her company anniversary. Will definitely stay here again next time. Highly recommended this place.
This place is ideal for the solo traveler. The entire apartment is really clean and very comfortable. I felt right at home the moment I walked in the door. The room is very spacious and offered all the amenities needed for a relaxing stay. The views of the Burj Khalifa are outstanding from the balcony. The pool in the building is also quite nice and also has great views of the Burj Khalifa.
For it being my 1st time in Dubai, the location of this apartment was everything. Its close proximity to the metro and Dubai Mall make it ideal. Its also in a location where waving down a taxi is very fast and convenient.
Agnes is a wonderful host and went above and beyond to make me feel right at home. She was very helpful and suggested places to visit and offered helpful tips for getting around the neighborhood and city quickly. The next time I am in Dubai, I will definitely be booking through Agnes again!
Agnes was an extremely pleasant host with a lot of knowledge about Dubai. She made me feel very welcome and right at home. I had lots of questions about things to do in Dubai, and she was very helpful in helping me to coordinate my activities for the week (last minute planner here!). She even helped coordinate a desert safari tour for me. Also, her maid was very kind to me and made delicious breakfast for me each morning for a very small daily fee.
The flat was exactly how it looked in the pictures; very nice, clean and pleasant. Agnes has a very nice flat with an amazing view of outside, especially from the living room and balcony areas of the Burj Khalifa. As a guest, I also had access to the pool, which was very nice (wish I had the chance to check out the gym, but not enough time). The location of Agnes' loft is also very convenient since it is close to some of the main attractions like the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall, etc. and the Metro. It is also easy to get taxis right in front of the building. This is a perfect place to stay for anyone who is a solo traveler.
Agnes is a very accommodating host. I had a flight change from morning to night, and Agnes was extremely understanding and allowed me stay at her flat until it was time for me to leave for the airport, despite that I was originally scheduled to check out in the morning.
In short, I was very comfortable during my stay at Agnes' place and would consider staying there again if I travel solo to Dubai in the future.
Agnes was great, very welcoming and accommodating. Great location and great facilities!
The listing description was really accurate and the location is perfect. very close to all the main attractions. Loved the city! I usually opt out of shared places but I don't regret changing my mind this time as Agnes is very lovely and welcoming and the listing is perfect for solo travelers. loved the opportunity to see Burj Khalifa from the balconies. will for sure come back to the same place
Agnes was a wonderful host. She is great to talk to, full of help and information about the area, and a down to earth person. I'm hopeful we will remain friends and keep in touch.
I was very comfortable there, and would most definitively visit again.
Thank you Agnes...
About the Host, Agnes
Have been to Dubai for over 10 years and love this city. I have seen the boom and the downturn. Those days the place where I live now was a piece of the sandy desert. The intensity of construction here amazes me. I love to travel and do several trips a year. Usually I travel solo. I traveled most of Europe, Asia, North America, Far and Middle East extensively. I did some Africa but still lots to do, and have not started South America yet! In general, I am positive about life.

An extremely big bookstore. As I said, it is huge. Second floor of Dubai Mall. A little known secret that is has a teashop with terrace, from where you can get your private view of the fountain show.Dubai
Upstairs - Fine dining restaurant, expensive but very good food. Downstairs - very nice breakfast!
The largest mall of the region, you can spend days in this mall and still find new shops. Restaurants with fountain show view: try Social House, Carluccios or Madeleine.Dubai
Relax with a drink on the beanbags at Calabars terrace, or take the elevator to the 63rd floor to Neos! I prefer Calabars for the atmosphere, and Neos for the view.Emaar Blvd Dubai Dubai
