What a great place for the money! The whole place was very clean and well kept. I had the smallest room available and it was huge. Separate bedroom with good mattress and plenty of pillows. Also had a desk, TV and safe in the Bedroom. Kitchen was large with stove, full sized refrigerator, microwave, stove, hot water maker, toaster, kitchen utensils, pots and pans, dining room table and clothes washing machine (no dryer). Living room had big screen TV with DVD player. My room did not have a mini bar, but supplies for making coffee and tea were kept full. No alcohol or bar in this hotel.
Nice small pool area. I did not use the spa, massage services or health club.
Location: Close to Metro Station (5 minute walk) and Mall of Emirates (10 minute walk). Several good restaurants nearby, my favorite was the Food and Drink Restaurant, about a block away by the Holiday Inn Express (the best food after 5:30 PM).
Food: Breakfast Buffet was rather weak for $10 USD. Ordered room service once and it was rather tasteless. Your are better off ordering food for delivery from the several close restaurants.
Internet: Poor WIFI in the room, but there was a hardwire connection I used for better speed.
Overall: I will use this hotel again for my next trip to Dubai.
