“Good for short stay / stopover”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

This is a very good budget hotel in Dubai. If you are looking for basic facilities you can’t go wrong staying here. We stayed 2 nights in for a short stopover and I have no complains whatsoever. Everything was very clean and the staff has been also very helpful.
The complimentary breakfast was spot on and the restaurant is also open till late with nice meals and reasonable prices.

Negative points: no restaurants around and no swimming pool.

If you don't mind about walking 400 metres to train station, this is perfect hotel. With reasonable price compare to other hotels in Dubai. Very clean room and comfortable. Staff at hotel was very nice both reception and security. Locate near Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa. Not too far from the palm. I really recommend this hotel to everyone who come to Dubai.

Dear Amandada75

Many Thanks for your trip advisor response, we are happy you have a great stay and you enjoyed our staff, location, bar and rooms.

Thank you for your feedback and advising that our menus in the restaurant are too small. For the HIEX brand we like to keep every thing simple and uncomplicated for the travel, thus a 20 item menu with our favorites of burgers, pizza, fish and chips, Cesar salad, curry, soup, deserts. This is the Philosophy of HIEX brands. In saying this we will definitely take your advise on board and see what the chef can do to add more for our guests.

Once again thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again in the future.

Many Thanks for your trip advisor review an we are very happy you enjoyed your stay with us.

Great location, clean rooms, friendly staff and we hope a good breakfast. I believe you where not happy with your breakfast. For a free breakfast we try and look after a mix of nationalities and there preference is a small space. Some times this is difficult. We are always looking at ways to improve, thus i hope on your next visit we can tick this box for you.

Safe Travels for 2014 and we look forward to your return to Dubai.

Was our first time in Dubai. We´re been looking for a easy to reach well located friendly hotel. And we´ve found it. The staff, A1 class all of them. Ahmed (the boss) in the front office, Adrian (the philipino), Dina (lovely egyptian girl), no to mention each of the bellboys as well as the people taking care of the breakfast every morning. Our stay in Dubai was in a family trip. Looking around the Hotel, everything was short distance. Heat made hard to walk anywhere to visit, but the Hotel provide bus shutle to beaches and Dubai Mall every day. Otherwise, taxis are easy to find at Hotel door. Nice stay, comfortable, but best of all, their staff. Next time in Dubai? Book Holiday Inn Express Safa Park, this is for sure.

Room Tip: Any one of them are comfortable and big enough for couples.

Stayed there when we were on a business trip.

The rooms are big enough for one person, gets small when 2 share. The rooms were clean. and the service was prompt- any requirement was met immediately..

However, the corridor on the 4th floor had a strange smell, and when we asked them, they said there was a painting job going on.

Breakfast was simple- but no complaints.

The location is just off Sheikh Zayed Road, but getting around takes a while with the road construction right outside the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the lift- especially if you have luggage- otherwise its a long walk around t...
