Considering that it's rated as just a 2-star hotel, Ibis Deira City Centre was airy, clean and smartly decorated. Rooms were not BIG, but we weren't cramped in either. And the staff was friendly and always smiling. They had a 24-hr cafe, even room service. Our favorite thing to order was the mini croissants, which were AED 9 for 3 pieces. :) They also have this thing that they'd respond to any complaint in 15 minutes. And I have to say, they were good on their word. Our shower tap broke our 1st morning there, and they fixed it within an hour, just before we had to leave the hotel.
We also really loved the location. It's just 2 Metro stops from the airport and Deira City Centre Mall was just across the street. We were there every day! It's a small mall (Dubai standards), but it had the brands we knew--H&M, Marks & Spencer, Gap, Zara, Nine West, etc. There were several good cafes also, and a food court, also a very big Carrefour supermarket! We usually used the mall as a detour to the Metro. The station was a 5-minute walk from the hotel, if we reached it through the street. But it was hot everyday, even in November. So we walked the longer "mall route" to escape from the heat. :)
The only thing we'd maybe complain about was that WIFI is available only in the lobby. And around 8-11 pm, everyone's using it that it slows to almost a standstill. But I guess that's what "budget hotel" means. :) There's just a use-for-everything shower gel-shampoo-hand wash in the toilet, no dental, shaving or sewing kits. They had a hair dryer though, even if it's a little low-power, not enough air to dry hair quickly. The electric outlets in the room were also the 3-pin type. (Only the outlet in the bathroom for the shaver was the 2-pin type.) We knew these from reviews so we brought our own adaptor, but I think the hotel lends these out also. No biggie really.
