One of the most stylish and classiest regions in Dubai. You make a jump in the past living in these Arabic style residences. It's in close walking distance of Souk Al Bahar, Dubai Mall/Fountains/Burj Khalifa. The Old town is separated in Regions. Mine is Zaafaran and contains 1-bedroom apartments and more… is 4 floors hight. The rooms are pretty big and the furniture is colonial style. They contain a living room, separate kitchen with a washroom, a dressing , bedroom, bathroom with bath/toilet/lavabeau. It's a piece of Green in the city of sand, with nice trees in every yard on the ground floor. Thanks to all the trees, there are a lot of birds around, what gives it a suburban feeling. The pool is one of the best I've seen so far. surrounded by palm trees, nice cool (but not cold) temperature and, even though the population is big, there are always sofa's available.Show less

The swimming pool
We arrived in old town in September 2013. Our tenancy was for 2 months. As we were new to Dubai we wanted to have a good look around the area before committing ourselves to an apartment. My first impressions of the apartment and community were very favourable. more… The apartment is big enough for the 2 of us, very nicely decorated and furnished to a high standard, with everything we could possibly need. The pool is very close by to the apartment. It has plenty of sun beds around and a pool attendant is always visible. The pool is a good size for length swimming and surrounded by plants and palm trees, which makes sitting around the pool pleasurable. There is a souk within approx 200yds from the apartment, with a supermarket, pharmacy, spa, hairdresser/barber. There are also shops and cafés within the souk. So everything you need is close at hand. There is also a hotel close by, so you can use their facilities and the largest mall is across the road from the community. Public transport is very close, buses, taxis and the metro within walking distance. With all this in mind, we didn't find any other apartment that meet with such fabulous facilities, so we signed up for 1years tenancy and are likely to stay another year Show less
