I've been staying in the Hotel for a short vacation with my friend. Honestly, I didn't expect to receive such a great service, a well selected and trained staff, tasty and fresh food. Room was always cleaned well, fresh towels and bedlinen, didn't need to leave tips for housekeeping to have it all :) The Hotel location also brings a great value to it as it is just in the middle of downtown, so anything you need to get is just in two steps away from accommodation! But if you need to move to another area, there is a subway station nearby.
Maybe this is not the best Hotel to stay is, but we did enjoy it too much, especially the price we paid to have ALL we've got! Coming back soon!

I have been staying at this Holiday Inn for business as well as vaction at least 5 night every 3-4 month over a period covering at least 4 years. With its location off of the main road, in a busy portion of town, you may be intially taken aback. Once inside the kind professional staff provide exemplary service. Am not sure what room rberaiki stayed in but, the rooms I have stayed in were always fresh and clean. Sure by Western as well as Dubai standards some of the rooms are smaller than you would like...if that is a consideration PAY A LITTLE EXTRA AND GET THE EXECUTIVE ROOM! It is worth it. In addition to the staff, the location is ideal for business travellers. Shopping and Metro are within 2 minutes walk. If the night life interests you, you do not have to leave the hotel! I must agree that it is not the MOST kid friendly hotel, but each time my family accompanied me they had a wonderful time....the little time they actually spent in the room. a resort it is not. A good, clean, value with staff that goes above the call of duty...it is.

I can afford to stay pretty much where I want in Dubai, but I always choose this Holiday Inn

Great location close to airport close to metro and close to city.

I arrived at 08.00 but they checked me in no problem meaning I didn't have to wait 6 hours wifi and breakfast was free with my gold membership along with a room upgrade.

Room was normal holiday inn, clean quiet, comfortable with big bathroom and powerful shower.

Rooftop pool was deserted and gave me nice chance to recharge.

Good buffet lunch was 50 UAE and great little cafe on main st by metro (automatic cafeteria) did super shwarma and fresh orange juice for 40 UAE.

Dubai mall is 6 or so metro stops away (16 uae return) and I will definitely stay again at this well priced gem where service was superb!

Stayed on that hotel for it's proximity to the old Dubai town so my mother could go very quickly to the old market in Deira Area.
The fact is that this hotel is a little old and tired, also very much crammed between a very congested area.
Not that bad, but there are plenty of hotels that are much better.
