Holiday Inn Dubai - Al Barsha
Ranked #154 of 561 Hotels in Dubai
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 20, 2012

I stayed at Holiday Inn Dubai Al Barsha during the month of September 2012.
I've always loved Holiday Inn brand in general but this one is truly special. I never once felt like I had to bother worrying about anything. whether it was breakfast in bed or slippers delivered on the pool or charging my mp3 before heading to my flight, it was always there.

The staff is friendly, professional and genuinely helpful. Emirates mall is literally a five minute walk and I never had any trouble finding a taxi right outside the hotel and also there's a little grocery store behind the hotel in case you'd like to buy water/snacks so to sum up it had everything I needed.

Stay there and you won't regret it!

Room Tip: Choose a room that looks onto the main road for me personally I liked looking at the road!

Stayed here for 2 nights in August. Was persuaded to upgrade to an executive suite when checking in so got a bigger room and a few extras such as unlimited wifi and free water in the room. Don't know how this compares to the standard rooms.

Hotel in a good location (not close to airport), very close to metro station (although I didn't use it) and Mall of the Emirates (at that time of year it was almost too hot to walk even that short distance).

I got taxi's everywhere as they are very cheap, but make sure you get a normal Dubai taxi and not the ones you are offered by the hotel as they are private taxi's and more expensive. Even when I asked for a taxi this is what I was directed towards until I learnt to say no and get a Dubai taxi which was either waiting outside or if yu just walk a few metres and you will easily hail one as they are everywhere.

Hotel has a rooftop pool which is small but functional, the only time I used it I had it to myself.

When I vsited it was Ramadan so dining options very limited, there was one open during the day which was not well advertised but was perfectly fine. Breakfast was good.

Staff friendly but very keen to sell you the extras.

This a great hotel for a Holiday Inn. We stayed there for Christmas and had a great time. It's in a pretty good location: right next to the Metro and the Mall of the Emirates (you know the one with the indoor skiing, etc...).

The rooms were great and modern, no complaints there. Reception was quite nice as well.

Good location for the mall facilities and the metro with easy access to the airport.
I stayed over a weekend having had to exit Saudi and re-enter as part of my visa condition. I booked this place as a cheap stay and was expecting it to be not so good compared with other hotels. Turned out to be not bad at all and I would use it again for a business or shopping stay. T
he pool and spa area is nice (on the roof) and the gym though small in floor space was OK.
Staff were friendly, breakfast plentiful. For lunch or evening meals there are lots of reasonable options in the mall food courts next door. The room I stayed in was standard holiday inn. Comfy, I slept well despite being on the road side.
Very good value place to stay on a stop over. Location is perfect if you want to shop for something.

Room Tip: I believe some of the rooms only open on to the internal atrium. The alternative is the side of the...

I have stayed at this Hotel for the past 6 months greated daily by all the staff with a smile, rooms are clean, good size and beds are very comfortable. For those who enjoy working out there is a good sized Gym with all the latest machines, weights etc. Cap the gym trip off with a swim in the rooftop pool which has amazing views of the Burj Khalifa Hotel.
Culinary delights are served by visiting the Thai or Indian restaurants which I cannot recommend high enough the food is amazing.
Mall of the Emirates is a 5 minute walk away for those of you who want to go shopping, eat or just view this amazing building
Stay here you will not be disappointed

I stayed for a few days in May 2012. As a business hotel at good rates this was perfect. The hotel service was excellent and the facilities were very good. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone on business in Dubai; especially if you are meeting clients in Media City, Internet City or Knowledge Village.
