“Prefect Location & Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

I stayed in this hotel in Dec before Xmas. Hotel is in a prefect locaion which is just 5 mins walk away from metro station, there are Starbucks, Mac Donald, Spinneys Supermarket within walking distance. There are also lots of local restaurants in the area. The hotel room is clean, the size of single room is just prefect for me, can't find such level of hotel in such good price in Dubai, I have no reservation to recommend Ibis Al Rigga to anyone who travel there.

I arrived early morning before 9am at hotel, the reception was so nice to arrange me early check in 11am.

The hotel is located near Al Rigga Metro Station, leave the station by exit 2 west, walk straight ahead, it appears on your right in 5 min walk.

Ibis Al Rigga is at the center of downtown Dubai, in one of the main streets with Metro stations. It has the usual Ibis features but the rooms are rather larger than the average Ibis rooms. The hotel is new, very well maintained and 100% clean. The price was at the usual Ibis level: slightly higher than other budget hotels. The vending machines in my floor were very noisy. The location is good and the view from my room at the front of 9nth floor was perfect. It’s a good Ibis hotel, go there! My grade 7/10.

Room: Standard twin for about USD90. Sparse and bland, but comfortable. No toiletries, other than soap pumps. Hair dryer didn't work. Small room, would be crowded if you opened more than one suitcase. Blinds blacked out most of the light well. Shower has a half glass door that cannot be closed, so some water gets on the floor during showers. Bed comfortable and pretty soft.

Hotel: Lobby is attractive. Free lobby wireless, with a few (crowded) couches and chairs. Wireless in room is expensive, around $25 per 24 hrs. Elevators require somewhat long wait. Staff friendly and helpful. Check in/out was quick.

Location: Pretty vibrant area, good cheap restaurants across the street. A few prostitutes in the area in the evening, but they're just making a living and pose no threat. Cafes with internet nearby. 5 min walk to Al Rigga station. Around the corner from supermarket.

Its a nice hotel to stay, The staff were courteous and very helpful but could be a bit stiff. No sport channels in the rooms, thats very bad. Even the TV showing sports at the bar dosent air English football. Why was that? Beats me. The breakfast buffet was nice but they could do with more variety because it gets monotonous after 3 days. The eggs were fried thesame way everyday for a whole week! Prostitutes were in the bar and busy winking at guests and glaring at other decent females - not good for a standard hotel. A fire drill took place during our stay. My wife had to run down the stairs not knowing what was happening. Thats not good for a pregnant woman. All in all, its an excellent hotel, checking in and checking out was done in seconds which was impressive but there was no bellboy to help with luggage. No internet in the room, the free one at the lobby is not enough, only 4 Computers, guests have to queue and you can only use it standing. I will still recommend it to anyone because of its location, price and courteous service

Room Tip: Higher floors are better for good view of the city

Dear Reviewer,

Warmest greetings from Ibis Dubai Al Rigga!

We would like to thank you for having taken the time to review us on TripAdvisor.

Thank you for recognizing our hotel’s services, the courteous and helpfulness of our team members.
Our sincerest apologies for your disappointments as well as the inconvenience you have encountered when you were in the bar. Please rest assured that we have taken appropriate actions to prevent future occurrences to our guests.

Your feedback has been reviewed concerning sports channel and Wi-Fi in the room in order to continuously improve the quality of our service.

For your kind info regarding the fire drill exercise, which is an obligation as per Dubai Municipality to do at least once a year, notices informing our guests had been put in all the rooms, next to each lift landing in each floor as well as at the Reception in order to raise the guests awareness of the Fire Drill, one day prior to the activity.

As you know Ibis hotel is a worldwide standardized brand within the economy segment which does not provide luggage service in the hotel but trolleys are at your disposal at the entrance of the hotel as a means to help our clients with their luggage.

Thank you for recommending our hotel and I hope we will have the opportunity to be at your service again in the near future.

Decent hotel well situated for sight-seeing in Dubai. Old town with Suk markets as well as Marina, Burj Khalifa, Palm Islands etc. easily reachable with Metro from hotel (Al Rigga station 2min walking distance), which is very cheap.

You know what you're getting with Ibis; a clean and comfortable no-frills room, and good service. The Ibis Al Rigga delivers that, so is perfectly adequate for a short stopover on a reasonable budget. A refrigerator in the room would be a nice addition. I wasn't told about wifi in the public areas of the hotel, but did use the computers in the lobby.
