Home away from home, when have to escape your abode because of any reason, what do you choose, a hotel or a hotel apartment? The reason could be anything, you’ve painted the whole house, getting your flooring done, pest control or moving from another country.Whatever the reason is but the choice makes a difference, you’ve to choose what is best for you and for your entire family.
We’ve stayed in a hotel room for a month and then stayed at a hotel apartment for a month, what is the difference? Hotel room comes equipped with necessary stuff needed in the room, a small fridge, if requested you can get a microwave.
If you have children and you’re the constraint to stay away for a long time, a Hotel Apartment could be your best bet. You are paying less for the room and you’re getting comfort for your whole family. In Hotel Apartment, you have the facility to choose, Studio, One bedroom suite or 2 bedrooms depending on the size of your family. You’d find washing machine, kitchen, spacious rooms, balcony etc.
This month, we stayed at Al Khoory Hotel Apartment in Al Barsha. (www.alkhoory-apts.com). The apartments are accessible and just walking distance to Metro, restaurants, groceries, pharmacy, Mall of the Emirates. You can also order food from their in-house restaurant Spices.
Our apartment was pretty spacious with a large living room, bedroom, and 2 bathrooms and the kitchen was huge (with necessary pots, pans, and cutlery), microwave, Kettle, washing machine and a big fridge.It was safe and sound, the rooms were clean and fresh.
My kids are fussy eaters, they don’t eat everything so we often hesitate to take them out or else feed them McDonald’s. In the kitchen, I was happy to cook small meals for them who they relished. It actually felt like home. The laundry was ensuite, another blessing with children. I remember, my little one had diarrhea, two summers back while we stayed in a hotel for a month. I was dead keeping the clothes clean without a machine and balcony. Don’t ask how I survived, it was awful,
Spices Restaurant at Al Khoory Hotel Apartment- love the Olive green decor
The breakfast was served in the restaurant, Spices. The breakfast menu was huge with the variety of delicacies to choose. The buffet includes the choice of Indian/ Arabic/ American/Continental breakfast dishes. There is a big pool at the rooftop, where I took kids after work in the evening almost every day. The gym is fully equipped with modern machines, steam and sauna rooms are a good addition to the Rooftop level.
The staffs were nice, helpful and service was great. It was a good stay at Al Khoory Hotel Apartments, we will definitely consider it again in case we need a long term stay.
