“Great location 8 minutes walk to Metro station stop.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2011

My Wife and I stayed here for 4 night from 7Th March 2011 we arrived mid morning to check in, As a Priority Club Platinum Royal Ambassador member we was checked in straight away but was told we had to wait about 10 minutes for the room to be ready which was not a problem to us. We had a great room room double bed with sofa large room But not the best of views to outside facing the gulf news building and on 1st floor, I did ask for a top floor with good view of the downtown area but was told hotel was full. any way we was out all the days sightseeing so it didn't matter. The cleaning of the room is not the fastest one day we never got the bin emptied nor cups cleaned and no teas and coffees replaced, I think they just opened the door looked in and went onto the next room?? so i had to find one of the cleaners and ask for more teas and coffees and a change of towels in bathroom.
We ate in the Restaurant on first night and each morning for the free breakfast which was good, They provide a free continental breakfast in the room rate and plenty of choice and kept keeping it restocked as things got eaten.
The food in the evening had an OK choice enough to choose from and at a reasonable price for a city hotel, the other nights we would walk 5 to 8 minutes to the Business Bay Metro station and go to the Dubai Mall only 1 stop away (5 min ) or to the Mall of the Emirates which was only minutes away in the opposite direction.
Safa Park is only a 5 minuets walk away if you fancy a relaxing stroll or sit in the park to watch the world go by, the hotel also runs a free shuttle bus service to Jumeirah Beach couple times a day.
Yes we would stay here again and we loved the location and walking distance to the Metro station.

Nice new hotel in a good location however our room was tiny and had a real musty smell due to the air con. Didn't eat or drink here but did use gym. Plenty of cheap taxis close by. Good location for Dubai Mall etc., plus beach only a short drive away. Staff on our first night could have been nicer upon check in (we arrived at 1am and had some debate around passports) but all in all good value for the nightly rate.

Standard Holiday Express, comfortable room with air conditioning, cosy bar area. Continental buffet breakfast included in room price, restaurant served a fixed price buffet style evening meal. The hotel staff are extremely professional and pleasant. The hotel runs a free shuttle service to the Dubai Mall and the beach, one return trip per day which has to be pre booked with reception. The Dubai Mall is one stop down from Business Bay which is the closest metro station (red line) but this is a 5 minute walk which, because the condition of the pavement (or lack of it) and trying to cross a busy road junction could be difficult if travelling with a heavy suitcase and in the heat of the summer months. However, the hotel can be reached direct from the airport terminal on the Metro for Dirham 2.35! This hotel is primarily designed for business travellers and it serves this market well, however some guests were plainly tourists which if one was expecting sand and sea they would be disappointed, Jeremiah beach is about a 30 minute walk from the hotel but there are plenty of taxis hanging around. With the closeness of the new Metro which is very cheap and convenient all the shopping malls and Deria City are just a short ride away. Tip: get the Gold or Silver preloaded metro travel card, it’s very convenient if you choose to use the Metro regularly.

Located close to the main road. The rooms are reasonably clean, but too small. The place is ok if you are on a tight budget or else there are many options available for a slightly higher budget. They do not offer room service. Breakfast spread is ok - frankly you could avoid it and head to the food court across the street.

Just spent a week at the Holiday Inn Safa Park, and had a wonderful time there. The value of the hotel was there in the service we got. Breakfast was simple, but enough to start the day and hold you until lunch or early afternoon. They set up some tours for our group. There is a gym there, and it was well worth it to have the email and breakfast package. Nice Bar for a late night drink, a little smokey, but we're in another country. Location was central enough to catch the taxi's out front of the hotel, rarely had to wait for one.

I found the service was excellent and the staff genuinely helpful and polite. There were cheap taxis on hand whenever I needed them and the staff were more than happy to give me tips on where to go and what to see. The room was very spacious, quiet and clean. The bar fridge was empty but then I ate out every day anyway. I ate dinner in the hotel on the last night and couldn't believe how delicious the fish was! The cold buffet breakfast was typical Middle Eastern fayre which I enjoy (cheese, fruit, cereal, juice, tea etc). The hotel really is well located in that I could take taxis everywhere fairly cheaply. I'd definitely stay here again.

We had a very nice experience with this hotel. Location was good: close (one metro station) to Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall & Fountains, complementary shuttle bus takes you to Jumeira beach and Dubai Mall. A bit early breakfast (except weekend). The only thing we didn't like was a deposit of 100$ just in case.
