“Above Average Experience and Overpriced Food”
Reviewed March 21, 2011

Ibis MOE is not very different from any other Ibis hotel. Standard 3 start service and facilities but located beside Mall of Emirates.

The Buffet Breakfast was a complete Rip off with no variety of dishes and substandard food quality.

Will only stay there again if I have to visit the nearby Media or Internet City early morning.

The Ibis Hotel is located in Al Barsha, right next to the Mall of the Emirates. The first thing that strikes you about the hotel is the smell of smoke anywhere you go. Even though you have non-smoking rooms, there is strong smell of smoke throughout the hotel.

While the staff at the front desk are passable, the room service at the hotel is pretty good. The rooms by itself are adequate for the price. There is no mini bar in any of the rooms. For internet connectivity, all the rooms have only paid wired connections, no wireless facility. The hotel however provides free wi fi at the lobby for all guests.

The breakfast buffet at the hotel was a tad disappointing. There is however a café right opposite the hotel that has some wonderful options. The location is ideal if you want to do shopping (Mall of the Emirates), go to the beach (Jumeirah, Dubai Marina) or your work is in Al Qous Industrial area or Jebel Ali. Travel to and from the hotel is very convenient with cabs readily available in the vicinity. There also is a Metro Station at the Mall of the Emirates.

The Ibis is a budget hotel that doesn’t provide you anything more than it promises and in that aspect, it serves its purpose. If you are not looking for too much except a bed to crash in during your stay, this is a highly cost effective option.

This hotel is new and clean with very friendly staff. The rooms are compact but are exactly what you want: clean & modern. I will stay here again, great location and fantastic value.

The Ibis Hotel Mall of the Emirates is a great value - the price is quite reasonable (under US $100) per night. Rooms are small and sparse (only amenities in the bathroom are liquid soap on the sink and shower); there's not much in the room other than the bed, a desk, television, and phone. As the hotel is relatively new, it is clean, and it's not bad for a few nights stay. The hotel is about a block from the Mall of the Emirates (no problem walking in February, but I wonder what it's like in the summer). Internet access and breakfast are extra, but if you splurge for the breakfast, it's great.
