Let's start with the positive things: the rooms (I stayed stopped over in Dubai twice for 2 nights) were clean and well-appointed, both the room service and the breakfast meals were okay; the reception staff were friendly and helpful. But on the negative side: I think this place is a bit far from Dubai's main atractions and there is nothing... More

Great hotel and fantastic rooms a small taxi ride away from most of the amenities of downtown Dubai (and the Airport). It can be also used for a quick stop-over while traveling to a distant destination, remember to book taxis to go around

The bathrooms were not very clean either. We had to call the housekeeping. After we upgraded to the suite, the room was big... More

The staff is very warm and accommodating. The place is so clean and the food was great! However, as a travelling PWD, I saw a little glitch in the platform leading to the road level. I hope you are open to my suggestion to provide a cut-out from the road level leading to your ramp for easy maneuvering of wheelchair-bound... More

Overall, Howard Johnson hotel provided us with the services we desired. Great room, nice breakfast buffet and a fantastic cleaning service. First impressions walking in was good, being greeted with a sparkling chandelier and a spacial environment had me smiling. However, there were problems at the reception with certain staff. One in particular was the male manager which came off... More

After reading the bad reviews on here I wasn't sure what to expect but I was very pleasantly surprised. The staff were friendly and helpful, the pool was quiet and clean, breakfast buffet had lots of choice, nice large room with a... More

So we land at Howard Johnson at 1am in night with an advance booking and they tell us that they don’t have the room that we booked available with them. The guy at the reception offers us another room on the second floor and tells us that they will move us to other room in morning. And hell begins! There... More
