Living alone
Good space, reasonable price, Ok location
Nice furnishing, spacious, good value
Pool and Jacuzzi not maintained, hidden costs, there is no oven in the flat
- If you are looking for value for money I would recommend Sports City, but you will need your own mode of transport. - My studio is 600 Sq Ft fully furnished. - Not all apartments have an Oven! (I missed this detail when I viewed, and they said I can't fit more… my own) - Good insulation, I can barely hear the neighbours - Because Sports City is relatively under developed there is little street noise, except for the buildings being built opposite (but you get this everywhere in Dubai) - There are no shops in the area, it's a 5 minute drive to Motor city where there is a huge Spinneys and Carrefour. - It's a (bearable) 20-30 minute drive to Media City with traffic during rush hour. - WATCH OUT: There are hidden costs everywhere! Security deposit, Chiller deposit, Furnishings deposit, car parking is extra, ADMIN COSTS are on top for pretty much for everything including for monthly Chiller, and their office is terrible at replying (unless they need something)Show less
