Horrible AC experience

AC
My experience with Zenith has been terrible if we talk about AC maintenance. The Air conditioners in all the apartments do not cool properly. Do not come here if you are looking for nice cooling. The design of AC in the entire building is incorrect even to begin with. The more… architects have done a very very poor job of ventilation design. The maintenance team can not do a thing to alleviate the ac design problem. They themselves are helpless to help you in your ac needs. AC is must in a place like UAE where scorching heat makes your life miserable.Show less

Everything
I really do not recommend this building, very poor or non-existent customer service. It's a nightmare, during the day construction around and inside the building (noise of drilling, hammer, etc.) Very bad smell inside the bathroom and toilets. You have cockroaches everywhere. The AC once per week doesn't work, the more… maintenance guys dont want to fix problems and they suspect you of breaking things. The worst experience I got in Dubai. If you want to book or live there RUN AWAY. The real score is 0Show less

Suffering in Zenith Building

Cockroaches, poor finishing and no maintenance and Air conditionings
I have been suffering for more than one year, Cockroaches, poor finishing and no maintenance, ACs are designed in a stupid way which make it cool max. to 27 degree so the ACs are not able to switch off because the temperature will never reach 24, thus the DEWA bill more… is always higher than average. they are using the security staff as a maintainance staff, so they don't have any knowledge about maintainance, leakage of water is everywhere in the bathrooms and kitchens, the main water tank has exploded in October 2016 which affected the whole building. all materials are very cheap that's why you will always have problems, also they hired the most cold people ever to answer tenants phone calls they don't care if you have emergency or any issue, they will just tell you to send an email and they never respond unless you go and fight in their office, I have been in Dubai since 6 years and never faced such bad building with such price.Show less

Zenith Tower A1 review, November 2014
Equivalent of a 2* hotel, cheap but not so cheerful
starstarstarstarstar
Sophie
From United Kingdom
Moved here in 2014, Living with spouse.
Positives
The garden, the size of the apartments, fellow Brit neighbours
Negatives
Fittings not fit for purpose, constant noise, cockroaches
First the bad news: There is rarely anyone at the front desk, there is no security to speak of because the staff speak little or no English and none of them have any maintenance skills. The quality of the apartments is beyond bad... On moving in we had a sink that more… didn't drain and a shower that ran all over the floor due to incorrect fitting, light switches that weren't connected to the corresponding lights or ventilation systems (we were the first tenants). Now 18 months on we also have a broken latch on every door in the apartment, including the external door. None of these problems have ever been rectified despite reporting them time and time again. Also the walls were almost impossible to attach curtain poles or pictures, we had to employ a professional because it broke our drill bit! The finish is shocking - taps are rusty, the kitchen worktop doesn't have a waterproof seal on it, neither do the bathroom tiles. The gym is terrible, a room with a couple of machines and no aircon. The rubbish chute is blocked for several hours a day and the water pressure is so low it is sometimes impossible to take a shower. Because the shoot is blocked people leave bags in the rubbish room which has led to a permanent infestation of cockroaches. The aircon is as good as useless, clearly it is not being maintained. I have actually seen people come to clean the pool but I think there are other filter problems as it often has scum on the surface and hairs floating in it. The emergency stairwells are often blocked with furniture or rubbish. The noise between apartments is minimal but smells travel freely between the bathroom fan system (which doesn't work) so you can be greeted by the smell of fried onions or cigarette smoke or worse. Also there is an internal phone which weirdly transfers noise between apartments and the external door gives no sound insulation so you hear everything in the corridor. Although there is little noise from the neighbours there is a building site opposite. Everyday from 0600-1900 a generator creates a constant mechanical hum for which the shabby balcony doors provide absolutely no sound insulation from. Unfortunately those hours are a guideline, at 8pm it is still running and we used to get a break on Fridays but not anymore. The building in question has not progressed in any visible way in the 18 months we have lived here so I certainly don't see an end anytime soon. Also none of the building in this area have a telecom on the car park barrier so lazy people/ visitors/ people who have lost their remote sit at the barriers with their horn blaring until the attendant opens the barrier. There's 10 buildings in close proximity so noise is pretty bad, it's all hours of the day and night. Cricket matches put the whole area on lockdown and they wanted us to PAY for a permit that would give us in and out privileges on match days! And despite all the visitors the matches bring there is not one pavement (sidewalk) anywhere in Sports City. It's lucky there's nowhere to go because walking or jogging would mean taking your life in your hands. THE GOOD NEWS? Sports City is CHEAP. These are very large apartments that overlook the golf course and out front is the only green space in Sports City, a well maintained little park with benches and a playground. The view from the roof is incredible, you can see all of JLT and over the golf course. And we have a lighted sign right on top of the building! So it's easy to identify our tower for deliveries and taxi drivers. It's true that there are no shops or restaurants but there are 3 supermarkets, 20 restaurants, a book store, salons, a clinic & 2 pharmacies only 2 minutes away in Motor City - even on established communities like The Springs you have to travel to the facilities. The Els Golf Club in walking distance serves alcohol and has restaurants. There is a bus which runs to Mall of the Emirates every 30 mins and direct access from the 44 & 311 BOTH DIRECTIONS which is unusual. It's only at the bottom of Hessa Street so perfect location. Central location, no problem getting on or off in the morning and some of the cheapest rents in the city? Some things are worth compromising for. If you are hoping to save some money while in Dubai this is a place with a few niggles but you can live with them at a push! Show less

Awful

From New Zealand

Positives
Nothing. I hate it.
Negatives
Everything. I cannot wait to move.
This building is awful and the price I am paying for it is simply ridiculous. In the year I have been living in this apartment it has fallen apart and no one even considers helping me... I'll probably have to pay for all the 'damage' out of my deposit. No more… help from the security/concierge and the landlord/company is very uncooperative. The building is DIRTY and the trash room is filled with roaches which often come into our apartment. I've had 3 different problems with ants/roaches in the year I have been living in this building. It surprises me how new it is, it looks like it could fall down any minute. The gym is quite new looking but the equipment is unserviced and UNSAFE. The swimming pool water is dirty, my children are not allowed in it. We've had many problems in this apartment and no one ever gets back to us, when they do we are told that maintenance of things like the leaking toilet and sinks aren't covered when we were originally told they were. The fire alarm goes off randomly for 30 second periods at ridiculous times. There is however good access to the 311 highway and it's not far to get to Jumeirah etc on Hessa Street. Sports City could have been a lovely area but now (2014) so many projects have been left unfinished and dust and sand and rubbish is everywhere. The apartment block opposite our balcony has workers starting at 6am and their generators don't go off until 9 at night... 7 DAYS A WEEK. Don't even think of getting a lie in after a hard week of work. If there is a cricket game there is cars parking and blocking up everything and swarms of people walking in the roads. Very poorly designed. You can't get taxis outside of the building and none of the taxis drivers have a clue where the building is. There is apparently a new bus service but who knows how far you'd have to walk. NO shops what so ever, you need to drive to Motor City. You could walk but remember this is Dubai and it will take you at least an hour. Overall I strongly advise NOT to take an apartment in this building. The prices are ridiculous and it's the biggest mistake I've made since living in this country. I advise you to look at Jumierah Village Circle (JVC) as there are similar priced properties there which are finished and clean and from what people tell me they are well kept and maintained.

Positives
Easy access
Negatives
No facilities (shops, Masjid, pharmacies, restaurants... etc.)
Dubai Sports City is a nice place to live, away from traffic with easy access from different roads. But there are no facilities, no shops whatsoever, no support from the management. The project is promised of a shopping mall but there is no sign of it, also a Masjid that more… have been under construction for a very long time. The management of events that happen at the Cricket stadium is very poor and not fair towards tenants who cannot find easy access to their homes. The particular tower where I stay got ZERO maintenance, the facilities in the building is not looked after (lifts, AC, Swimming pool, Parking....etc.) and the landlord is not cooperative at all. The flats got nice layout and an ok view, but the finishing is a very low quality, actually the lowest quality possible.Show less
