Howard Johnson is a good option for all Indian travellers due to location of the Hotel. Good Super-market, Indian Restaurants & shopping place are 10-15 min. walking Distance. Even the Bur Dubai Bus stand is quite close by.

We stopped here for just 1 night transiting from NZ to UK, having never stepped outside the airport in Dubai before. We chose this middle-range hotel as near the sea and downtown Dubai with reasonable facilities. Arriving at the ungodly hour of 07:00 we expected to have to dump our bags and then go on a reccy. However, the staff... More

Arrival was easy. We emailed the hotel with our flight information, and they sent the shuttle to the airport to pick us up. Checking in went smoothly. Our room was spacious enough, and it felt very clean. They told us it was newly renovated, and it did seem new. The furnishings (curtains, chairs, bed, television) all seemed new and gave... More

Howard Johnson is a fine hotel with good localization /nearly train station MTR is about 250 m from hotel, taxi from airport is about 15 USD/. There is a fine night club with local dancers and a outside pool on at the last floor. Breakfast included a lot of local fruits. Crew is very helpful. Rooms are extensive. This were... More

We are an elderly couple aged 63 and 67 years. Our Dubai visit was through tour organisers KUONI / SOTC . At Howard we were so comfortable that we did not miss our Pune home in India. Howard is a clean and cosy place where guests are given due reverence. If we get another chance to be in Dubai we... More

Was woken during the night by other guests coming and going so the rooms were not very sound proof,guess we were just unlucky. The hotel... More

Staff needs better training, check out process too long, security needs to be tighter as many shady characters hang around the entrance at night its very intimidating, also please do something about slow lifts...
