With a view of Sheikh Zayed from your balcony, Al Kharbash Tower sits nicely on the strip, right next door to Shangri La Hotel and boasts it is the last high-rise before the 1st interchange. If you're lucky to have a south-west/west facing apartment, you get incredible, unadulterated views of more… the Burj Khalifa, a treat and a half on New Years.
It's close enough to everything you need (Union Co-op, Jumeirah, Airport, Downtown, a major interchange leading to major areas like Festival City, Meydaan, etc.) with too many options for dining near and around, this is one of the best places to live in Dubai.
The building itself is made solid. Built pre-2006 boom, so materials used are generally of good quality. It is owned by a respectable local family, so they follow the rules and don't squeeze tenants just because they can. Unlike many free-zone landlords, the building offers maintenance, chiller services and year-round security.
Because of the location of this building, hailing a cab couldn't be easier with less competition trying the same. It's the last building on the service road parallel Sheikh Zayed Road; and with the Shangri La Hotel next door, empty cabs have to float by Kharbash Tower - and do so every 5-10 seconds, any time of the day.
Only issues we felt as tenants are to do with the white-goods, once damaged or irreparable, will not be replaced and become the tenants responsibility. Fortunately we already owned what we needed, but had we not - the cost or inconvenience would have been high. In addition to this, getting maintenance to come for repairs or other work is a challenge, even with repeat reminders. This tends to be a reoccuring pain-point. Once they come, the work is done very well and usually to the tenants satisfaction, if not above. Could be that demand for maintenance is high and staffing is low. Show less
