Reviewed June 10, 2012

Everything about this hotel was pretty average. Nothing to praise too much n nothing really to put down the service was pretty good the location was close to the mall where they have the ski dubai and Fairly near the train stations maybe 500m walk or there abouts. And the burj al-Arab and wild wadi waterpark was only a couple of Kms away.
The room did smell pretty bad when we first went in but we went crazy with the spray and it eventually went away after a day of spraying. Don't know what it was but it smelt pretty gross.
Overall for the location for compared to the other hotel prices in the area it wasn't bad value.

We stayed at this hotel for three nights. We had difficulty finding the hotel after taking the train and arriving at dark. Not too many street signs around and we ended up just hopping in a taxi after walking around for about an hour. Location is pretty good being about a 15 minute walk to the train station (once you know the way). The hotel is about 5 minutes from the mall, which will be your short cut and air conditioned walk to the train. The front desk can arrange your tours for you, but make sure you have the cash to pay for them as they do not accept credit cards for this. We made arrangements for a tour with the front desk with the instructions to pay later when the tour picked us up and were pretty disappointed when we cut short our day to do this and found that our place on the tour had not been reserved. Lesson learned - bring cash and pay at time you make the arrangements! Breakfast at the hotel is good. Rooms are clean.

I stayed at the Hotel Ibis Mall Of The Emirates for six days and had a great experience. The price is right its proximity to the mall is extremely convenient. The room was small but clean. I used the wifi in the lobby every day and never had any issues with it. I would recommend this hotel to someone who doesn't care about frills and wants a convenient, central location.

I recently stayed at the Hotel Ibis Mall Of The Emirates for 4 nights and found exactly what I was expecting. It is your standard international/western hotel with all of the essentials covered: comfy bed, good shower, powerful air-con, decent buffet breakfast and 24hr service desk. For the (cheap) price of the rooms it is everything you would expect to get.

A few other notes of the place:

Location - It is walking distance to the Mall of the Emirates (although you need to walk half-way around the Mall to find the pedestrian entrance), but otherwise the Al Barsha suburb has nothing else to offer. You end up catching the Metro (closest station is 3 blocks = 10min walk away) or a taxi if you want to get anywhere else. If you want to stay closer to the beach or downtown then pick another suburb. I chose this hotel as I had friends that lived nearby.

Internet - You need to pay for cable internet in your room. Free wifi is in the lobby (which equates to lots of people sitting in the lobby talking on skype)

Service - While the staff were generally okay, I can only describe their attitude as disinterested. It felt like I was disturbing them to ask a question and their knowledge of some fundamental info was lacking, including the times and details of city tours they were trying to sell me.

Gym - While a gym is advertised, this is actually part of the attached Novotel, and costs Ibis patrons and additional 30AEDs (10USD) per use. Definitely not worth it for the tiny gym size.

Overall, I feel this hotel give you value for the price you are paying. Not a bad option if you want standard lodging in the Al Barsha area.

With this hotel, you know exactly what your getting. basic, clean, down to the point, economical and comfortable. I personally loved my stay here, staff are very friendly, rooms are well maintained and cleaned, everything is well organised and straight forward. This hotel does the job and exceedes, do read up on the concept of the ibis chain before hand. very happy with this hotel.
P.S I stayed at other ibis in Dubai, this one is by far the rest.

We stayed for 2 nights. The staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean but basic. No fridge but that was no great problem. Water vending machines on each floor at reasonable prices (about 2Dr). Staff were helpful and courteous. Free wifi in the lobby but not in the rooms but once again not a problem. Breakfast included and was wonderfully comprehensive and brilliant quality. Near to the mall and metro. Budget priced hotel but good at the price. Would stay again and recommend.

We stayed in the hotel in May 2012. We have stayed at another hotel in Dubai and found this hotel of a much better standard. The room was immaculate, the bed was comfortable and the shower was great. What more could you want? The breakfast was good, especially compared to the breakfasts you get in hotels around the region. The location was excellent, a 5 minute walk to the Mall of the Emirates. The staff were friendly and helpful. We will be staying here in future stopovers in Dubai.
