“best for a short stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

I was visiting family in Dubai and stayed at this hotel as it was in the vicinity of my family. I would only recommend this for a short stay like I had.
The room I was allocated was huge, but unfortunately it was next to the housekeeping room and I was woken by the housekeeping team at 0630hrs. Also, the bathroom had no hot water and the shower wasn't full height. I asked to be moved and the room I was moved to was cramped, albeit clean with a bath, hot water and full height shower.
This is as it is described on many websites a business hotel. BA cabin crew stay at this hotel and I overheard them saying they preferred the hotel they used to stay at.
The swimming pool is on the roof so guaranteed sunshine, not like many pools which are shaded by tall surrounding buildings. There are only approximately 20 sunbeds but as long as you're by the pool early you'll get a bed. I didn't eat in the hotel so can't comment on the food.
Staff were friendly and polite.
Really liked the wifi that was available in the lobby.

This hotel is in a great locating if you want to shop, eat and rest, the lobby is nver too full and there is plenty of sinning options, I wished a had more time to enjoy Dubai. But I as only there for a few nights. If you are registering solo, there is NO VISITORS allowed in the rooms, so if you like to bring visitors stay somewhere else, the bars are good, not a large selection of food but its adecuate, along with plenty of TV's always on soccer ofcourse. The breakfast was great, you get omelettes or scrambled eggs to order, room service is timely and nice portions. I did not use the pool or the roof bars, but I would of liked to. I would recommend to others unless you want to bring visitors.

We stayed in the Holiday Inn Al Barsha, and cannot speak highly about it. Upon arrival, we were checked-in quickly and efficently, and were soon on our way to out Suite as the Hotel had upgraded us due to our loyalty level. A large corner suite, which was an immaculate smart boutique style living space. we spent 3 days there before heading off on our Cruise and it was a great place to start a holiday off. The sun terrace with pool may be small and the sunbeds are taken early, but we managed to get two beds with only a small wait.
The restaurants are excellent, we especially enjoyed the Indian restaurant.
It's only a short walk to the Mall of the Emirates and the hundreds and hundreds of shops which are available there. There is also quite a large food court there if you feel peckish whilst wandering around the shops.

Location is always important to us and this one is excellent. Short walk to Mall of the Emirates even in the June heat, and the metro close to. Metro is amazingly clean
Hotel is fine, nothing flash but good service, breakfast etc, small pool on the roof with view over to the Burj. Taxi are plentiful so itis easy to get around. Reasonable price in a city of very expensive hotels, but it is out Jumeriah Beach way, not in central Dubai, which an be a blessing!
