Very Nice hotel in the center of Dubai. You can do shopping in walkable distance. After roaming around Dubai whole day, you can still do some shopping as there are some 24 hours open shops near by. Metro is also in walkable distance, so you can go to any where if you didn't plan your day. Dubai is an awesome... More

I had a 19 hour layover in Dubai, so I booked this hotel as it was only 2.5 miles from the airport and in downtown. The staff was incredibly friendly, and although they put me in a smoking room after I asked for non-smoking, they immediately made it right and moved me without delay or hassle. The rooms were reasonably... More

Stayed for two nights as a stop-over on the way back from Uganda. Hotel is near the airport, about 10 minutes or so by taxi. Taxi was 45 dirhams from the airport and about 20 return. Travel quite frequently on business so IHG is usually the first choice, due to this I am an IGH Platinum Member. Got a welcome... More

Well located in Deira, not a fancy street /area but easy to reach from the airport. The staff has been friendly and helpful at all times, 5 stars for them. However, the facilities and rooms are more than outdated and should have a renovation urgently, mainly the bathroom, which is totally old and far under Holiday Inn standards.

Even Though the price was low, the standards of Holiday Inn shouldn't have been breached. The room had a bad smell. The breakfast had a dull look. Management has been very economical in ingredient purchases for the breakfast, they should get an award for being able to find the smallest olives on Earth!
