Positives
Centralized location (convenient for everything), quiet, finishing of the apartments.
Negatives
Air condition system
Very nice 2 bedroom apartment in good location, as Tecom is central to everything for me. The mall isn't too far work is the opposite side of Shiek Zayed Rd. as well. There are many family based occupants living in my building, so it is noisy when you get back more… from work but it is general quiet and peaceful. There's two grocery stores and three restaurants downstairs that sell pizza, burgers and associated cuisine. Things I don't like about the apartment is the A/C as it is controlled by the person in the main bedroom and the temperature is colder in my room, so if they feel hot and turn on the A/C it will be way colder for me. Also, it molds alot because of the A/C so you have to hire mold cleaners now and again to stay safe. But, it's generally a great place to stay, I have been here 4 years, so its definitely been a comfortable living.Show less

The management of Crown Residence building was GGICO they are the best and they are very good management but now they have changed the management and the name of the building now is Time Oak Residence not Crown residence anymore. The new management is not good, stinginess, no cleaning, no more… maintenance... You will find my reviews for the building when it was Crown Residence not Time Oak Residence.Show less

I wish they washed the facade (windows) more often...
Belhasa Building has a spacious marble lobby, 24 hours security and 3 elevators that are always available. My 1-bedroom apartment has a balcony and semi-furnished kitchen. I've been living here for more than 3 years now and I've have never had any issues - no leakage, broken tiles or ceiling. more… I rarely hear the screams of my neighbors' children so I can say that there is good soundproof between the apartments. The neighborhood is quiet but not isolated - Carrefur, Geant and an organic shop are within walking distance. Traffic is not an issue at any time of the day/night. Mall of the Emirates is few minutes away by car, as well as Dubai Marina, JLT and The Walk. Show less

Al Shafar Tower is walking distance to Dubai mall (12 mins), very spacious (1 beds are 1100 sq ft +) and has a great pool with all day sun. There are great views of the burj out one side of the building and the Radisson Blu next door for a more… beer/sport. Its going to be a great building in the next few years with the business bay lake opening up and shops and boardwalk being constructed. Show less

Vista Tower is a great location for me and my job but the only reason I stay here is because my job pays my apartment. If they did not I would have moved years ago. I have lived here 5 years and it has just gotten progressively worse in all more… areas. Yes, we have security 6 days/week but not 24 hours a day and none of the doors lock so what use is security in the evening ? Maintenance is a shame. I think the company has changed every year and only gotten worse. Everyone passes the buck on responsibility. The gym equipment is damaged and had never been repaired. The pool rarely gets cleaned.Show less

One of the more recent attractions to be erected into the Dubai skyline, very well equipped to handle most situations. With its numerous towers, the entire area has been set up in such a way to make one's commute around much simpler, if you had a car. Let's say I more… was in Cluster M, needing to go to the tower right across the body of water, I would have to walk around for a while just to get there. Given, it really depends on your desired destination, otherwise, taxis are readily available, and the Dubai Metro is situated perfectly near the building I resided in. Being on a higher floor is of great advantage if you are facing the Dubai side of the far right towers, (Cluster A etc..) otherwise you might have an obstructed view of Dubai Marina and then Ibn Battuta in the distance. Luckily, we had Dubai Marina and the Dubai skyline from our balcony. Just some words of caution, that I believe come as a given. One's enjoyment of JLT will depend mostly on whom you will be boarding with. Family? Thats great, you all know how the others function, and there are a set of bylaws on how to maintain the flat. Though if you're planning on rooming with someone, make sure you have had some prior living experiences with them, because that can go south pretty quickly. (Why I left) But, if you have those main routes down, then you're going to be very happy living in that area, especially if you're working there or planning to study. I believe about a year ago they opened one of the best Russian universities in the area, Synergy university Dubai Campus. Anyways, other than that, most building have the pool deck on the roof, so you're assured great sun, and an even greater view. Security at the door is very punctual and will make sure to note down your entry if you're face is not familiar to him, and ask for some proof of you residing in that particular tower. One bothersome thing is the lack of continuity and upkeep, by that I mean, there are some building that have been "under construction" for ages, and one that had a minor fire incident over a year or so ago, that has still yet to be renovated and greeting new home owner. It's not an eye sore, I doubt many will even notice, so its most probably just me.. But I mean, come on, get a move on it! Just a final add on, majority of neighbors are extremely friendly, the noise levels weren't a bother at all, and it was a great experience that I hope to revisit once I find a compatible living companion. Two thumbs up!Show less

I'm extremely happy overall with the building maintenance, flat layout design and the security/ cleanliness of the building. I feel it is good value for money. However, the only drawback is that there are no parks within the Tecom area and that is more a flaw in the way this more… area is designed than the individual building. One complaint I do have is that the children's play area in the building is still unfurnished and vacant although we were told when we moved in that they will put a playgym there for the kids along with a slide and swing. Also, the party room on the ground floor has no chairs or tables which means it is rarely used as anyone going for catering then eventually goes for a bigger area too.Show less

It has close by supermarkets, hotels, pubs and coffee shops. The negative aspect is the price, especially nowadays prices are more… going up, way up in which you cannot afford to live in a 2 bedroom apartment even in a 1 bedroom when prices of a 1 bedroom reaches AED 95,000 yearly. I love living there, so what I request is for the prices to be not cheap but reasonable. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to reveal what i think. Show less

The entire building!
Have been living here for over 2 years and was one of the first tenants to move in, its only the rental price that keeps us here. My family hates it, but as we have to balance out lifes other needs, have to compromise. For a building that was finished only more… 2 years ago, it looks like it is from the 70's. Its dark and poorly lit inside, the internal fittings and decorations are cheap and terrible. There is a cockroach infestation, the landlord does nothing about, the smell from neighbouring apartments spread throughout the floor, the lifts are small, making moving in very difficult, the A/C's are noisy and fail to cool well and due to the building design our apartment is poorly laid out and dark most of the time. If I had the money, would move out in a heart beat!Show less

Positives
The area, is quiter, and traffic free...
Negatives
No play area for children
Security should be more vigilant, on who they allow to enter into the building. Anyone can come in and out of the building as they wish. They should not allow people, delivery staff to enter the bulding unless they have checked with the tenant they are going to meet or more… deliver.Show less

Positives
The view of you got the SHK Zayed Road balcony
Negatives
Balcony in the bedroom not living room.
I lived here 2 years ago and I must say, the maintenance of the building, the cleanliness, the security, the building guys are all fabulous. They are so friendly, extremely helpful. Everyone who stays in it are also awesome and honest. We had dropped 3000 AED by mistake in an more… elevator and someone returned it to us after 2 days. I would absolutely recommend this building.Show less

Icon Tower review, October 2014

Positives
Location
Negatives
Maintenance
Icon 2 Tower is a great value for money. It is one of the most cost effective buildings in JLT due to it being a relatively old building but it is in a great position with multiple access points and has a great view of the lakes. Renovations to the building more… entrance is a plus as well.Show less

Positives
Location, size
Negatives
Can't think of any
I have been living for more than 1 year in this building. It is in a great location, near the DIC metro station, always lots of taxis and close to all major roads. There is also plenty of supermarkets and bars/restaurants very close. The building itself is clean and the apartments more… are well laid out and spacious. I have seen various types (2 bed, 3 bed) and all live up to expectations. Also the lift waiting time is very low and never crowded.Show less

Positives
Pool, view, location
Negatives
Bad maintained, bad management
I like to live in here, we don't really want to move. The building is in a good location and also layout of the flat is nice. Only downside is the management of property: - gym not maintained at all -pool occasionally maintained - partially some floors have black spots on ceiling, due to water more… leak. it was never repaird, instead the ceiling is falling of and the black spots have now appeared in our apartment as well. - many ppl leaving their "massage" cards on our doorframe.... I wish the management would care more about the state of the building than only looking how to get more money out of us. Some employees are extremely rude with you and don't care. The building itself is good, needs some touch up but generally fine. We have enough shops around and salons and a metro nearby. I wish real estate agency would be nicer and more helpful. Show less

Positives
Pool and Bbq area.
Negatives
Communication with security and maintenance.
Stayed in a one bedroom apartment here for 1 year at 65000, the pool and bbq area is great and no problems with any traffic. 24 Hour shop downstairs and a great butcher. Minor issues where dampness on the walls of my bedroom that caused the pain to peel and more… the maintenance of the building didn't really cover much. I was also told I could move in the next day although it caused a massive issue with security when I turned up and they told me I couldn't so had to send my stuff to keep somewhere over night and sleep at a friends. Apart from this people are friendly and I seen plenty of pets etc getting in the lifts. There was construction going on next building but would only effect me some times as I work nights and sleep day. Show less
