Default UAE "Hall Flat"

What exactly is a Hall Flat? It was said here... "rather than "hall" flats where the living room opens directly onto the corridor"

So it there just no formal entryway? Or it is some kind of shared living room with private bedrooms?

It seems to be a term used only in the UAE and Kuwait.

Thanks.

All that means is that there is a living room from which u get access to the bedroom(s)......it is common to hear news papers refering to homes as 1 bed hall flats for example.......its just a silly way of putting it.

A hall flat is where the main door immediately opens up to the living room. There are no reception rooms and are not very private!!!
