Holiday Inn Express Dubai Airport
Ranked #225 of 561 Hotels in Dubai
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Coming from the Middle East, heading back to Europe, I asked my office to arrange my flight with Emirates. Due to 18 hours transit, I asked them to arrange for one-night accommodation as well. They booked me in Holiday Inn Express, which turned to be a great option.
I must say that the hotel is quite and friendly. The bed is very relaxing indeed.
There's not much you can do in the hotel anyway, which make the hotel ideal for someone that need to spend the night in peace, to catch a flight in the following day.

If your trip is short, and you do not wish to venture much around Dubai this place is perfect. Absolute global standards, friendly and helpful staff, good food and beverages, spacious rooms with comfortable beds, and above all.. You can never miss your flight, even if you want to.
Suitable for both business and family trips.

We stayed here as we arrived late in Dubai, and were leaving the next day. We checked in at 2 am, exhausted from a flight from Australia. Room was basic, and the kettle, hairdryer and alarm lock were not working. Breakfast was from 6.30 till 10.00, so we went down at 9.30. Practically everything was gone, no mugs, one banana in the dish, fried eggs cold and had obviously been lying for some time, coffee machine didn't work, bread almost finished. We were approached by the staff to say they closed at 10. Now in my opinion if you pay for breakfast then you are entitled to the same amount and quality as those who were down at 6.30 as long as you arrive before the finishing time. We were given no doubt that we had to leave by 10. As this is an airport hotel then they must know that people are arriving at all times. We reported the fuse in our room and it was dealt with promptly. There was no milk in the room for the tea/coffee and my husband had to have Coffeemate with Earl Grey tea ( no other choice of tea available). This hotel may have been in the lower price range but very poor value for money.

Room Tip: There are other airport hotels that may be better value.

stayed in this hotel twice and for a pure business trip for one night in each trip, the hotel is very close to the airport in location (T1 & T3) but not T2, the hotel runs shuttle service to all terminals every 30mins and free of charge, you can use their shuttle service arriving from the airport and departing to the airport.

rooms are well maintained, and always in clean condition, breakfast are good, I also tried a dinner in their resturant and also was good,they have small bar with good happy hours offer, but still the price of drinks are high as this is the standard in Dubai, but still you can take a taxi to the very close warehouse and garhoud for more varity of pubs and bars with cheaper rates.

this hotel used heavely by the airlines crew as it is very close to the airport.

I would rate this hotel as good as you will get all what you need for a business trip.

Room Tip: Request for higher floor rooms facing the airport if you are interested on aircraft movments in the...

I was a little concerned that we may experience noise from the airport BUT, not a sound. This hotel was great value for money. They offer a free shuttle to and from the airport which runs every 30mins. Their service is very good and all staff are very obliging. Clean, tidy and modern hotel with a basic but good gym for those seeking one throughout their travels. It's a 10min walk to the Metro (train service) which gets to to most places tourist like to go. The Metro is the most cost effective way to get around however Taxi services are very affordable (especially compared to Australian Taxi costs). The hotel offers a buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. The breakfast is at no additional cost to what you pay for your stay however the minimal cost for lunch and dinner is great value. They provide quality food and a great selection of choice. The only minor negative is you can not walk out of the hotel and get straight into a taxi however, im sure you could order one, flag one down close by (if you don't want to take the Metro) OR you could use a private driver who wait out the front. NB: be cautious of these drivers as with some of them you are not covered legally as you would be travelling with a Taxi in the unfortunate event of a vehicle accident. If given the opportunity to return to Dubai, I'd stay here again.

Stayed here for 3 nights on a short trip with my wife. Well acquainted room, no hassles in check-in, clean and relatively new, free wi-fi, free underground parking, they even dropped my wife for a business meeting in a limo (Lexus) free of charge. Wow.

Breakfast was okay, the cappuccino was really good.

No complaints, overall a good experience.

Have stayed here several times before, although this is the first review I've written. There is a shuttle bus to the shopping mall close by, but since I had a car, I ddint use the shuttle. The hotel is within walking distance to the metro station as well, but NOT walking distance to the airport (due to the various bridges and tunnels to get to the airport). By car/bus, its only about 5 minutes or so to the airport.
