I stayed here earlier this week due to an 18 hour transit at the airport; the hotel does the job. It is close to the airport, I was checked in quickly and efficiently, and I got a quiet room at the back of the hotel which I had asked for.
I had also asked for a double room with one bed but instead got a twin room with two double beds, which was a surprise, but I didn't complain as the price was the same for both rooms and the bed was big enough for my needs which was essentially a stopover before my flight back home the next morning.
The restaurant offers a buffet and was pretty good. There was a good choice of starters, mains, and deserts, and you could have whatever you wanted. At £12, I couldn't complain! Holiday Inn Express position themselves as a budget hotel so there was no room service or any other 'frills' offered but this was fine.
The shuttle bus from the airport was very slow in arriving which was annoying. The airport information kiosk said that a bus arrives and departs every half hour (on the hour and half hour), but a fellow British couple waiting for the bus alongside me said that their previous experience was that it is a very long half hour! From the hotel the next morning though, the bus did leave regularly and on time. I was expecting 5.30am and that's when it left.
I would use this hotel again because it is close to the airport, convenient, and at a good price. I wasn't interested in staying at the overpriced glass monstrocities in the centre of Dubai; just a restful overnight stay close to the airport before flying back home the next morning. This is what I got, so I would use the hotel again.
