One of the best”
My husband and I stayed for 10 nights in this hotel apartment and our experience is exceptional. The transaction from check in to check out was so smooth. The staff are approchable. And all our request was accomodated. The room is so cozy specially the layout of the kitchenette and bar table in Classic King room. They will clean your room everyday and refill the tissues, water and coffee. They are changing also the sheets and towels everyday. Pool and gym area is clean but there is no kiddie pool. They are offering also a buffet breakfast but for us we prefer to cook our own, thus the kitchenette is very useful. Overall, we had a great experience in this hotel and will definitely come back and recommend to my other friends. Kudos to team J5 Rimal Hotel Apt!
Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for your excellent review. Happy to hear that everything went smoothly from arrival to departure and our classic room had all the amenities that you needed especially the kitchenette. We also appreciate your high remarks on cleanliness, housekeeping services, pool, and gym. Our hotel aims to provide a truly unique experience and we are glad that our staff effort met all your needs and expectations. I will be sure to share your affirmative words with the entire team. Thank you again for sharing your experience and for recommending our hotel to your friends! We hope to see you again soon. Warm regards, Ayman Gamal Room Division Manager
Really enjoyed my stay at J5 Rimal in October. I usually travel to Dubai 5-6 times a year and it was my first time with J5 Rimal. It has whole package for business traveler: free internet(with decent speed as for Dubai), clean room, friendly staff, fair breakfast. Another thing to mention is gym and their zumba and aqua aerobic classes. Like it a lot. Will definetely recommend it to my colleagues and freinds
Excellent hotel, super highly recommended.”
I stayed here 3 nights , 2 young men and 60s parents. The hotel is one of the best I stayed during this trip from Japan to Dubai. We fell enjoyable when stay in this hotel. Here are some details: Food/Dining: We use breakfast buffet in this hotel in 3 days stayed here. The price is 69 AED, not so much choice for meat, protein lover but very good for westerner who like bread, milk and fresh fruits. I think it was a good price in Dubai. Hotel Condition/Cleanliness: Room space and beds are large and comfortable. There is a mini bar and thank for the kitchen in side. There are extra towels and pillows if you want. My room 606 has a little problem with the bath room flat because water can not drain completely so that I usually have to change the socks after go to toilet if i forgot took them out before jump in. There is no tooth brush and comb in bath room if you call the room services, they will bring for you. The internet in Dubai is extremely expensive, in this hotel also not cheaper. 20 AED or 5.5 USD/hour, 70 AED/24 hours (calculate from the point you started login). Sadly for UAE- a traveler city, their internet is more expensive than in North Korean :D, 10 times more expensive than in Norway and Japan. I bought Du mobile- an ancient telecom sim and they charge me on KB while other country, charge on MB or GB. Location: 10 minutes to airport, 500m to Al Riga metro, 1 km to Deira city center, far from beach and new Dubai but I like this place. 15 minutes metro to Emirates mall, 25 minutes to Dubai mall but It is easy to go there. 15 EAD to take taxi to the airport terminal 3. Room Comfort/Standard: spacious, quiet, excellent! Staff Performance: With me , staff were very polite and helpful. Value for Money: We satisfied with the hotel and highly recommended for people.
Can not fault our stay at J5 Rimal... spotless hotel,fantastic staff,great breakfast, close to Metro which is so easy to use, close to Restaurants and supermarket. We had never been to Dubai before and we loved it so much to do and see and the staff at J5 could not do enough for us and were so helpful with all our questions would definitely recommend to stay here...It is not central but so easy to get to where you want to go... only a 10 Min drive from Airport
Dear Agoda Guest, Thank you for taking time to share your review. I am very delighted that you had a fantastic stay with us and glad to hear the accessibility of our location pleased you. It is also inspiring to know that our efforts to provide wonderful and memorable experience are appreciated. Rest assured your kind words will be shared to the rest of the team. It was a pleasure to be of service and I look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit to J5 Rimal. Sincerely, Neil Fernandes Hotel Manager
Everything is fantastic at this hotel, except for the internet speed. If the internet speed gets improved, there is no reason to complain about anything anymore. I do recommend this hotel only if you are half of the day away from the hotel though. J5 Rimal is perfectly made to sleep, shower, to eat breakfast if you want it in the hotel, do a workout in the gym, and enjoy the sun for an hour or two at the rooftop pool or use the sauna. But further, there is not much to do, so don't be expecting any entertainment or whatsoever. However, this hotel focuses on having a great staff and ensuring you feel like home at the hotel. They are always very kind to you, no matter what day it is. So if you are planning to be at least a few hours per day away from the hotel, then this one would be a perfect choice.
Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback about your stay at our hotel and for recommending us to your fellow travelers! We are immensely pleased on your comment “Everything is fantastic at this hotel”. Your feedback has greatly encouraged us to continue in giving our best service to you, our valued guest. On the other note, please be assured that we will look into the slow internet speed that you highlighted and concerned department will be inform about this. We certainly look forward to another opportunity to serve you better in the near future. We hope to see you again soon! Kind regards, Neil Fernandes Hotel Manager
J5 Rimal is perfect for family...”
Front Desk: The Spanish guy and the Duty Manager (tall black guy) was very helpful and accommodating... Room 715: Perfect! We stayed there for 4 days and they responded quickly to all our requests...they replenish the complimentary supplies daily, make up and cleaned our room well, changed our beddings and towels daily...the kitchen is complete if you want to cook everything is there...including washing machine/dryer. Rooms: Nice room set up...we love the white linen beddings... Others: Even the maintenance crew responded immediately when we asked for assistance... Final Comment: We will surely come back.... It's like home away from home at J5 Rimal... Will book again with AGODA. Thanks, Peralta Family Baguio City, Philippines

value for money”

Please J5 Rimal Hotel Apartments, try to assure your clients the cleanliness of the room, please no more cockroaches.

Great as always”
One of the best 4 star hotel/apartments in the Deira Dubai area. I have stayed here numerous times and I am never disappointed in the friendliness of the staff or quality of the accomodations. Great staff, great service. My only problem with this hotel is it's location just off Al Muraqqabat street. It is not a taxi friendly location for pickup, and it is still difficult to get a taxi from the street, because of it's lack of pulling over space.
Always a pleasure staying here”
This hotel never fails to satisfy my needs. It has a modern appearance and very nice and clean rooms. The staff is always friendly and helpful. It is still one of my favorite hotels in Dubai and an excellent deal for a 4-star hotel. Pricing on rooms is extremely fair. I really have nothing bad to say about this hotel. The construction that was going on around it is now complete, and the area is quiet and clean again.
Don't be put off by the name”
Despite its strange name this is an excellent hotel, situated in the older downtown area of Dubai. The staff were extremely helpful and genuinely interested. A well stocked supermarket is just down the road selling everything you could possibly want "from home" ... easy to prepare simple meals and breakfast in the kitchenette, if so desired. A short walk from the hotel are numerous middle eastern restaurants which serve delicious food at a fraction of the prices of glitzy modern Dubai. The metro is a short walk away - so you can easily get to the glitz if you wish.
Dear Agoda Guest, It is such a pleasure to receive wonderful comments from valued guests like you. It is a delight to know that our location and convenience around suits to your stay. I am also glad to read that you had a very good experience with my colleagues. Your compliments will be shared to the whole team to keep them inspired in giving an excellent service. We hope to see you again soon! Best regards, Neil Fernandes Hotel Manager
Great rooms and wonderful staff”
The hotel is not far, 10min from airport and situated slightly over 5min from train station with cheap taxis everywhere. The hotel itself is elegant although room carpeting is showing signs of age but does not detract from the comfort and niceness of the room. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are sparkling clean. Staff and management was more than accommodating especially considering the nature of my requests (arrived early 7am, and checked out four days later at 3:25am before breakfast). I must also say I found staff welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was superb. The only downside was that the rooms have no nice views and others no views at all except the walls of the neighboring buildings. I did not use the facilities because of time but did check them out, beautiful swimming pool though small, sauna spa and gym were inviting and all situated at the roof level. This is a good hotel and quiet as well and intend to continue staying here whenever I visit Dubai.
Quiet surrounding and good location”
First, the hotel is just few minutes away from the airport. It cost me 30 dirhams from the hotel to the airport. Second, even though the hotel is located quite near the busy place (Al Rigga), the hotel surrounding is very quiet. The room and the whole facility are bit old, but I could notice a good maintenance of the staffs. The room is extremely clean. All the staffs were very kind and cooperative. There is nothing to complain about. All the good restaurants, even though arabic cuisines, are located nearby. Metro is just five minutes away from the hotel. It took me just 20 minutes to reach Dubai Mall. If the hotel can provide free internet in the room, it would be excellent.
Home away from home”
Usually J5 is tiptop in every aspect from my years of experiance staying there at least 6 times a year, but my last two visits, for the duration of my stays one time sauna was not working, the other time steam was not working. I don't remember exactly which room but either the sauna or steam room was closed for over a week and renovated less than a year ago and seems to breaking down every few months, maybe it is time to change to new unit? Just an idea for the management.
Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for sharing your valuable feedback with us. We are glad we were able to deliver a home away from experience even though we fall short of your expectations in some area and would like to extend our most sincere apologies for the disappointment that this has caused. I have taken note of your suggestion and rest assured will be shared with the concerned department. Again, thank you for your feedback and I hope to welcome you back soon. Sincerely yours, Neil Fernandes Hotel Manager
Wow its really noce hotel! Nearby a 24hour supermarket, the hotel has sich professional and nice staff that we feel easy and welcomed. The mini kitchen is wonderful since every korning we can cook some meals for ourselves. The metro is nearby around 6 minutes by walk. The restaurant across the street is great we enjoyed eating there so much. Overall, the price is good! We will definitely live here again next time when we come to dubai!
