Me and my wife stayed at the hotel last December 2012 for 2 nights. The location is very good (although it's not exactly European walking distance from the nearest Metro station (Mall of the Emirates), if I remember correctly it was something like 15min to get there, but I guess that's normal for Dubai, after all the distances are enormous there:) The neighborhood is good, offers small grocery stores nearby.
The lobby is interesting (design-wise) which for a budget hotel (which the Ibis is) is unusual.
The staff is extremely helpful and polite. We went there very early in the morning (around 8am) because of our flight, the check-in is around 2pm, but there was a room checking out around 10am, so the staff offered us this option without extra cost, which was very generous of them. They offer a free baggage storage so you can explore the city while you're waiting for the check-in.
The rooms are clean and convenient (very identical to any other Ibis hotel in the world), have a security box in the wardrobe as well.
There was no breakfast included in the offer we have chosen and the additional price per person for a breakfast meal seamed a little steep (but again that's typical for Ibis).
In general - we were very happy with our stay there and we would go back when in Dubai.
