Recommended for: Those renting a car (plenty of complimentary parking) who need to be between Deira and the southern parts of Dubai. Also those conducting business at the various embassies within walking distance. Location is usually my main priority when booking hotels in Dubai, and I've found the Bur Dubai area to be convenient for mixing business with pleasure during... More

Awful hotel- rooms face the interior courtyard are plagues by noise, and don't get any natural light. Service: not quite the western standard that you expect from Holiday Inn. Breakfast: not the typical HI breakfast, better to go to Dome over the road

Good option in Dubai if looking for a hotel at a reasonable rate close to public transport and old town. The staff was excellent and friendly. I had an travel issue during my arrival and the front desk immediately helped me make the appropriate contacts to resolve an unforeseen situation. The rooms where spacious and clean with a nice big... More

i picked the hotel because its proximity to old town. decided to book the dinner cruise along the creek and was directed to the travel desk. the travel rep is an "independent contractor" so no charging to the room and cash only. after we go to the ship we realized that it is all Indian buffet which wouldn't be so...

We stayed here for two nights as a short break on the way back to the UK from South Africa. We arrived during the night and were warmly greeted by a very efficient receptionist who checked us in quickly and courteously. Our room was upgraded and had a large selection of complementary fruit and a bottle of excellent wine to... More

Hotel is situated very close to my Embassy. The hotel has a enjoyable roof top pool. Food is excellent at Anwar Restaurant in ground level. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The front desk/room service was very helpful in getting a taxi for me. Duty Manager Mr. Gabriel Torbey and his team was very helpful.

I stayed at Holiday Inn for 3 nights on a business trip. Right from the moment you walk in it was a fantastic experience all through. Mr. Narayan was kind to accommodate for a early check-in (I was early by 4 hours :-) and ensured that a room is found in a quiet and cosy corner. Rooms are well equipped... More

Was for business 3 nights in February. Had executive suite on third floor. Room was large, still fine, not new but certainly acceptable. The staff was friendly. View from window terrible. (but for business trip doesn't matter). However the noise at night is really dramatic. Till 3 a.m. every night you hear the disco (below the hotel they told me)... More

I stayed at this hotel during Christmas for an extended layover. Found the rooms were pretty standard and everything else was on par with the typical Holiday Inn standard. The standouts however were the service received from staff they seemed genuinely attentive and the buffet breakfast which had a large selection of food items perfect for the Weary Traveler.

We just completed a four night stay here as part of a tour. We received VIP treatment from Front Office Manager, Gabriel Torbey. At check in, he was very welcoming and provided us with lots of useful information about the hotel and Dubai. He was very attentive throughout the stay. Although there were several negative aspects of our stay, General... More
