What is a serviced apartment?

SilverDoor’s serviced apartments in Dubai are the ideal accommodation for business travel. The key difference between a hotel and a SilverDoor corporate apartment is the provision of a spacious and comfortable living area. This is because our apartments include fully equipped kitchens, sitting rooms, housekeeping services and leisure facilities.

If you are relocating for a short while, then our short term apartments in Dubai have a distinctly homely feel. However, if you are looking for some long term hospitality, our apartments are also ideal for accommodating long stays. With the features mentioned above, it will allow for an easy and hassle-free stay, however long you are booking with us for. 

A daunting prospect of any kind of business trip is the potential financial cost involved. One area in which we excel as a business is through sticking to your budget. With multiple price options available at most of our serviced apartment locations, we can adjust to your budget. Furthermore, bookings which surpass a 28-day threshold benefit from a VAT reduction of 16%, meaning that our apartments in Dubai are excellent long term financial options.

What do I need to know about staying in Dubai?

Before you depart for your business trip to Dubai, you, of course, need to know some information about this spectacular city so you plan your trip accordingly. 


With one of the world’s busiest airports, there are always frequent flights to and from the UAE’s largest city. We have a selection of apartments near to the airport as well as in the tourist hotspots. This means that an airport transfer can be anywhere from 5 minutes to 25 minutes away. When settled in the city, there are a wide selection of buses, taxis, trains and trams to choose from. 

With a modern state of the art metro system in place, the route stops off at all the main attractions that Dubai has to offer. If you can’t stand the idea of travelling in some of the hottest temperatures, you don’t need to worry as most of the transport is fully air-conditioned.


It is well known that Dubai is one of the hottest places in the world. Situated in the middle of the desert, it is key that you pack sensibly. With temperatures consistently staying at around 25-30 degrees in the winter months to reaching highs of 40 degrees in the summer, you certainly won’t need any winter clothing.


As with most Middle Eastern dishes, Dubai’s traditional cuisine is particularly hot and spicy. Whether curry, rice dishes or camel meat, there are plenty of local markets where you can experiment with the food. If this is not to your taste, then there are plenty of restaurants which offer an alternative, continental cuisine.


In Dubai, they speak Arabic. The 5th most spoken language in the world, many people in Dubai also speak English. This means that if you are struggling to grasp an understanding of something, there is often someone nearby who will be able to help you.

What else is Dubai known for

Due to huge amounts of economic investment in recent years, Dubai is a relatively new tourist hub. With some of the world’s most impressive skyscrapers, the city has diverged from an economy based almost exclusively on oil to an important trade, commerce and tourism centre.


With just under 16 million visitors every year, Dubai is the 6th most visited city in the world; this number continues to rise year on year. 


Dubai has some absolutely incredible man-made landmarks. Whether that’s islands such as The Palm and The World or the towering skyscraper that is Burj Khalifa, there really are some great sights in Dubai. The Dubai mall is also one of the biggest tourist attractions that the city possesses, directly next to the Burj Khalifa.
