Ageing finishing
I have lived in Burj Views for 5 years. The excellent - it is set back from the Boulevard and there's a 'back-way' out to the 44/Al Khail which allows me to avoid a lot of traffic. There is a 'splash pool' as well as a pool in which I more… can do laps - roughly 20m length. Because there is a Flywheel there is great outdoor visitor parking. Flywheel is an excellent thing to have just downstairs, as is the Clinton St. Bakery, 24 hour Carrefour (cheaper than Spinneys which a lot of people have downstairs in their buildings downtown), Carribou, African & Eastern etc. Burj Views is also walking distance from the Dubai Mall/Boulevard etc. Depending on the lay-out you can expect a double sink in the ensuite bathroom which is useful if you life in a 1 bed as a couple. The good - in contrast to other buildings the kitchen space is decent, large for a 1 bedroom, and I like the amount of counter and storage space there is. There is also a mini utility room, big enough for the washing machine and I'm able to squeeze in clothes-drying racks, ironing board, broom etc. I've got shelving on top of the washing machine, so this 'room' doubles as a closet. The bad - depending on the layout of your flat (mine has a living room close to the front door) you can hear everything that goes on in the hallways - lifts pinging, people coming in and out of their apartments. I may have been particularly sensitive to this as there was a shrieking 2 year old next door. There's also some noise from downtown party people. People also complain that the kitchen cabinets break easily and are difficult to replace, although I've been lucky/have handled them carefully and haven't had major issues here. The whole building in general is ageing faster than it should, errors were made in some of the electrical wiring (so placement of light switches is counter-intuitive/they control the wrong lights). The gym also has maintenance issues, lots of out of service equipment (broken eliptical trainers, treadmills that are out of commission, missing grips on weight machines etc.). I have bad water pressure, not sure if that's just me.Show less

Positives
Pool, squash court, close to Dubai mall
Negatives
Outside park full, some finishing
Very nice building from Emaar, maintenance is good and amenities excellent. Pool in summer is a bit cold for my taste. Good for bachelors. Carrefour 24/7 at ground level as well as African+Eastern. All 1bed room are facing business bay which have a few building under construction, hence noisy and poor more… view. 2 bed rooms are facing Burj Khalifa. Podium have wide layouts, if you like more space compared to better view choose that one. Reaching there throught Al Khail road/business bay is great, you avoid all traffic jam to Dubai Mall during public holidays. Poor side are finishing and original plumbing, time to time appears some leaks in corridors. Anyway immediately painted. Car park outside for guests is always full. Kitchen are good but cupboard have weak hinges and most of them are broken, check them out and consider that are not easy at all to repair.Show less

The building is made by Emaar Properties with 24/7 Security and fantastic maintenance. The building has a 2 nice pools, gyms, squash courts and basket ball courts. The building is very close to Dubai Mall and the downtown area. Every apartment has a parking space. Nursery and park is at more… a walking distance. The neighbors are good and polite. No noises. I've been living in the apartment for last 2 years. Except for the high rental, the place is fantastic. Show less

Excellent building, friendly people, ambiance very good. Situated in the heart of the city, Downtown is one of the best areas to live in for bachelors. Lots of light, spacious, great view. Perfect for the people who are use to of a trendy, upbeat, hustle and bustle of the town. The more… view is something to die for and its breathtaking. I have attached a picture from my balcony for a better understanding. Great value for money. You are close to all the necessitates needed and the best things is 24 hrs Carrefour, number of restaurants and a new trendy gym called Fly Wheel. Show less

Burj Views is a real nice residence as it's close to Dubai Mall, got a supermarket, coffee shop and restaurants in the buildings itself and it also has a grass area close to it (near South Ridge). The only problem is the view and construction in the backside of it. more… A lot of noise coming from that construction since years. And now there is even a high way that is loud and the windows are not equipped to block that much of a noise.Show less

Negatives
Expensive
I chose to live in Burj Views, as I work in Business Bay and my daughter's school is near the Safa Park. Though I initially thought it is expensive and would move out after a year, this place is growing on us and we are unable to decide to move more… out... with cosmopolitan neighbors and good facilities, it is going to be difficult to move out. Carefour at the building, a taxi queue virtually 24x7, close to the Dubai Mall and the Business Bay metro, this is a good place to be, just that it is a bit expensive.Show less

Positives
Negatives
The community is very nice, mostly consisting of European expats - families and young professionals working in nearby DIFC. Personally for me, having the good sport facilities in the building was the selling point, also the stunning views outside from the balcony did the job. The two things I dislike would more… be the quite frequent water leakage from the a/c in the hall and in the kitchen and poor quality of kitchen cabinets. Overall, just prolonged the lease for another year, so it is still a good place for me to stay while enjoying my life in Dubai.Show less
