“Wonderful day visit”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

I had a very long lay-over so I decided to get a hotel close to the airport. The HIE is very close and has all the things you need. Good food, great internet, and cable in the room. I would recommend it so you do not have to sit in the airport for long periods of time.

Room Tip: Make sure you bring cash because the cab does charge 25 durhams just to leave the airport, but they...

Had a 2am return flight from Dubai so decided to book somewhere for the kids to relax before we flew home.. The holiday Inn express tickets all the boxes for that purpose.. Cheap (£60), close to the airport (2-3mins drive or free shuttle bus available from the hotel) and clean and tidy..

As a Priority gold member I was given free internet access which was handy and a couple of bottle of water. Check in was quick and efficient and the rooms were nice enough with tea\coffee facilities, shower, TV etc.. what more do you need...

Family decided to get some food in the restaurant and unfortunately this is the hotels downfall as the food was pretty poor..

On the whole though the place served a purpose and would certainly use this place again if needed..

I stayed here for around 4 Nights and found this to be basic clean and functional hotel.

Rooms were clean, reasonably sized with comfortable bed and average bathrooms. The food in the restaurant is buffet style, on a fixed price menu(60 AED). Seems ok priced... but will prefer options.

The hotel is fairly isolated. You can certainly find much better options in around 3 - 5 KMs in Diera for the same price if you are looking for a long stay. Its offer shuttle service every hour but didn't tried it... they have a small drinks store in lobby but charges are exorbitant... i bought half litre water bottle for 10 AED. Never tried that afterwards. Worst they provide no toiletries, Water Bottles... and have some good reasons to offer.

Last they need to increase the staff at the reception... The lobby seems to get crowded with guest waiting to be checked in. Just ok for staying for a night if you need something close to airport to catch your connecting flight...

I had a a pleasant stay here recently. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy, but this is a budget hotel. No tubs in the bathroom, showers only, but it wasnt an issue for me. However, one gripe I do have is that the WiFi was NOT free (unlike most holiday inn express hotels) and was expensive. The breakfast was decent, better than the usual complimentary fare.

The airport is very close and they have a free shuttle. Also the metro line is very close and provides good economical access to the city.

Good for a place to take a shower and grab a few hours of sleep before you flight, But bring your own wash cloth because they apparently dont have any.

Will still use for short flights hops that is all.

There were some intial problems at check-in. First we were given a queen room, although we required a twin, the second room was right next to the very noisy elevator, so we asked for a change again. The third one was a twin and away from noise. The room was OK, but very small. I couldn't even place a carry-on sized suitcase between the bed and the wall. The bathroom was also not very practical with very little space to put or hang your things/towels. The housekeeping could have also done a more thorough job when cleaning the room. Otherwise it's a very convenient and nice property, the breakfast buffet is great, lots of items and they change them daily, so when you're staying more nights you get to eat different things. The breakfast room is also very nice and spacious, no plastic cups or plates, which is a nice change from HIEs in USA. The hotel is within walking distance to Dubai metro (5-minute walk just along the road), which is great. There is a free airport shuttle, but they don't really stick to the published schedule, so you better take one earlier to be on the safe side. The hotel features a complimentary underground parking garage for guests, which is great, so that you can pull your luggage directly into the elevator and have your car hidden from the blistering Dubai sun. The front desk is also very efficient and friendly. All in all a great stay, if it was not for the crammed rooms.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the elevator(s), they are really noisy.

This hotel is the perfect location. The hotel shuttle bus also makes trips to the nearby mall and to the beach. The breakfast included was excellent with a large variety. We are a family of 6 and got the connecting rooms that was very convenient for us and the kids. The dinner although not included was also excellent. This is a great hotel for family. There was also a lot of business travellers there as well. Hotel staff were very helpful, polite and friendly. There was a tour desk in the lobby that is very convenient to book tours. I am happy I cancelled my reservation at the Sheraton to stay at the more economical and "Better" holiday inn express at the advice of my friend that lives here, reviews on trip advisor and after I saw where the Sheraton was located. Only one thing that was missing and would have put this hotel over the top was a pool !!
