Dear Maureen D,

Thank you so much for your review of our hotel. It is nice to know that you found our staff to be helpful and the Wifi connection suited your needs. I apologize however that the breakfast served did not completely meet your liking. We take all reviews negative or positive very seriously and your feedback will help us improve for our next guest or your next visit.

Despite this, I do hope you will return to stay with us again at some future date when you can be assured of our very best attention.

Regards,

I have been staying at this Holiday Inn since January of 2013, except for a couple of flights home for 2 days then back.

What makes this such an enjoyable experience is NOT the caliber of the rooms, but the staff especially the front desk and the maintenance man.

The restaurant staff, MARIA, RECARDO, ROSA AMD PAOLA, plus the excellent chef is what keeps me coming back for almost 4 months straight!

In this time, I have had only one marginal meal, it was cold, otherwise ALL my meals and service have been impeccable. The restaurant staff are not just staff members to me, they are my family!!

My stay is drawing to a close as we have found a house, but I can assure the restaurant staff, my wife and our two grown children will definitely stop by to say hi, have a drink and to order either the chicken with Dijon or the NY strip with rice.

Thanks to PAOLA, ROSA, RICARDO and MARIA, we love you ALL!!!!!!

Our stay here (4 nights) was excellent from start to finish, from the reliable airport shuttle, to friendly and helpful staff, to cleanliness, to an excellent breakfast buffet. A big thank you for the staff's patience and helpfulness in organizing our transit visas. With the metro station a stone's throw from the hotel, getting around Dubai's areas of interest was a snap. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone. Thanks again for making our visit to Dubai a most pleasant experience.

Rooms comfortable, Breakfast ok, Internet good, shuttle to terminal. My only complaint was a group of very noisy french students who seemed to be awake at all hours making lots of noise and filling the entrance with smoke as they gathered there every evening.

Had a 17 hr layover in dubai and booked in here. Used airport shuttle bus both ways, which took only a few mins. They run every half hour.
Standard room clean with all the usual items.
Bed comfortable and had a great sleep
Did not use any of the facilities apart from shuttle bus.
Would stay again
Staff very helpful and courteous.
