I will only ever stay at Sonder in the future. I unfortunately had a medical emergency on my flight to Dubai and had to return back to the UK within 24 hours. After arriving at Sonder, Ahmed Samy was amazing from us checking in to checking out later in the day. Ahmed arranged for a refund of our stay as we could only stay at the apartment for 12 hours before returning home to the UK, and had this booked for a whole week. We didn't have to even ask for the refund, but this was provided as a gesture of goodwill. Ahmed also followed up by WhatsApp to ensure we got home okay. The apartment itself was faultless, very modern, clean and updated. More than the apartment though, the people and especially Ahmed has been amazing and so helpful, we travel to Dubai a few times a year and will only stay at Sonder in the future because of the help that Ahmed provided to us. Thank you Ahmed and thank you to Sonder!

Positives: Spacious apartments (3 bed rooms and and small 4th room) all with their bathrooms Location and view were convenient Parking slots available Staff is nice Negatives: They take lots of money for renting the apartment but they have a new policy that if you want your apartment to be cleaned you should pay extra money for cleaning (so I don’t see the point of paying that much money if I can pay it in another 5 stars hotel in the same area including the cleaning service) The rooms and apartment (since this is my second time in sonder) always have flying insects (like small butterflies that come out from the sink or shower sewages) The shower glass and walls are suuuuuuper dirty. I think they only clean the floor of the shower room. But the walls and glass are dirty When we arrived there were not hotel supplementations as the slippers /tooth bushes/ tooth paste … etc that have to be usually present in a 5 stars place and we had to request them The first time was in dec 2021 and it was a good stay. This second time was unfortunately not up to our expectations and we might think not to choose to stay in this hotels apartments due to the high price and lack of cleaning service and the presence of an excellent competitors in the same location with better services
