Negatives
House Rent!
*Deira, Al Muteena is a great place and anything can be walking distance or public transportation are very accessible. But for a one bedroom flat with a size of a studio??? *The owner and the watchman are really not helpful for so many reason... Like we need to make visa for our more… new born baby here in Dubai and Tenancy Contract are one of the requirements but it was delayed for a month due to our tenancy contract was not registered with Rera by the owner. So it ended up paying and shouldering the fine for our baby's visa without any apology. *Our first year starts at around 30k then on our second year it was 35 then now we are in our third year and will end this end of JUNE 2015 and it will become 40K. Plus AED 300 per month for indoor car park and need to pay every 3 months full payment. *Maintenance are disaster! Watchman so lazy to clean everyday and when he do cleaning... most of the time it stinks because he used not clean mop. *Most of the building/flat in our area have CCTV already which is I think a mandatory now in Dubai, but of course we don't have one in our building. *At night only few lights from the car park are switch on and it look so dark from outside. *Most of the time, when you pass on the small hallway (which is where the watchman live on a small room then there's the small lift) there is something that we couldn't describe the smell.. it could be the mop he used to for cleaning or the watchmans food or something else that I really don't know. *One of my friend cannot park outside and its really hard to get a parking slot, so I decided to ask the watchman if my friend could park her car just for an hour or two. Then the watchman said its not possible because the owner will come after few hours and will get mad. --Then I replied to the watchman that its not the day that the owner is coming today how come your telling that his coming??? (The owner only come at Thursday or sometimes Friday, at night only.) --So, my friend able to find a parking space after how many round and round routine. --Then my friend visited our flat for 2-3hours only and its like almost 12 midnight already and the owner didn't came as expected.

Positives
Walking distance to mall, park and not that crowded area
Negatives
We need to pay 250dhs for parking monthly
The reason why we choose to stay here even though its small space for us is that the location is really nearby malls, groceries, metro and we can afford the annual rental. Im living with my husband and 2 years old daughter and since the space is small, we more… can put only small furniture and equipments that we can carry if we need to move-in again. But the big reason why we choose studio flat is that we expat/OFW will not stay here for a long time and if that time comes we need to go back home we can easily dispose our things easily.Show less

Positives
Centrality and availability of most daily necessities
Negatives
Noisy neighbours
The block is clean and well maintained. It has amenities to supermarkets and shops within 2 minutes' walk. Walking to Al Ghurair centre, Reef Mall and 2 medical centres, pharmacies, means tht one does not necessarily need a car to get from place to place. There are a variety of more… bus routes and Salahuddin MS ( 5 minutes walk). It is a busy, thriving community with a variety of shops , hotels, and amenities. Although it is located on a busy road, noise is not an issue. Several mosques are within walking distance. Road access is good, and this is an easy place to find a taxi. DXB is 10 minutes away.Show less

Positives
Accessibility
Negatives
Nothing in particular
The building, location, community and accessibility are all fine. Being in Deira, the building is only a 3 storied and I live in the 1st floor, so no waiting for the elevator ! Only glitch I feel is that the building is slightly old, but still reasonably well maintained.

I'm living in a 4 story apartment backside of Al Ghurair mall the location is perfect, very accessible. The community is quiet, we are not over crowded even we are living in a small flat. The best flat I ever lived in coz I can sleep tight day and night. The buliding is more… old but it's ok overall.Show less
