On our way to Saigon, we were faced with an overnight stay of 9 hrs... The wife's injured her back recently so we decided not to do the usual overnight airport thing.... After being quoted $300 to stay in the airport hotel, I rang (at 1.30am) the number for Holiday Inn Express... The operator was so helpful.. Got a double... More

Good location for a short stay or stop over for traveling to another location in Thailand. The rooms are ok, breakfast is not good. The hotel is quit noisy, the rest you need to take for a short stay over for a connecting flight is disturbed by the many noisy people staying in this hotel. Is is both on the... More

I visited Holiday Inn Express this April. I must say that this is a good hotel. BUT the problem is if you have stayed at Holiday Inn Bur Dubai, then this hotel seems to be "JUST A GOOD HOTEL". While Holiday Inn Bur dubai is near many commercial centres like malls, restaurants etc.. the one near the airport is not... More

Just a short shuttle bus ride from Terminals 1 and 3 at Dubai Airport you will find a very lovely hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, even at 2.30 am, and checked me in without any drama. A lovely room awaited me with all a tired traveller required. The wake-up call was on time and the buffet breakfast... More

Stay there for 1 night, for transit purposes and all just good. Have nothing much to explore since stay there only for transit before heading to the other city. The hotel is clean, tidy and convenience. Wi Fi is good and breakfast maybe is good also since I take breakfast by box. Recommended to those on transit while in Dubai...

We have been there for a few nights. It is located near the airport and a Metro station nearby so you can travel anywhere with Metro (Dubai Mall 30 mins.). Our room was ok. It was quiet enough for a good sleep. Aiportservice was included which was also nice. Staff was very friendly. If you need a place to sleep... More

Busy hotel perfect for a stopover - a courtesy shuttle is provided from the airport as like most places in Dubai it isn't really possible to walk there even though it is very close to the airport. Travelling as a solo female and first time in Dubai I felt relaxed and safe here, the staff were very friendly. It is... More

We stayed here for just one night as a transit passenger, thinking it will be at walkable distance from terminal 3. This is definitely not the case. You must take a taxi or wait for the hotel bus to reach this place. Also, location of the hotel is quite bad with virtually no nearby options to eat or drink. Rooms... More

Having been a bit disappointed by Le Meridien on my last overnight in Dubai I decided to give the Holiday Inn Express a try as it seemed very close to the airport and was better value. The hotel is very close but don't be fooled by accounts of "2 minutes from Terminal 3". Having waited at Terminal 3 for 20... More
