“Lovely hotel great room knowledgeable and friendly staff”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

Lovely spacious clean and tidy room with ample facilities. The Mini Gym is adaquate and the pool area clean with plenty of sunbeds. Breakfast catered for everyone and was very nice. Transport to and from the airport was very good. Reception staff very attentive, concierge very knowledgeable about the local area. Would definately return.

We visited last year In October (2011). the hospitality was exceptional and all the staff treated us with upmost respect and dignity.
our room was cleaned everyday, and the breakfast is highly recommended catering for everyone.
we would absolutley return to this hotel when re-visiting Dubai.

I have several reasons per year to go to Dubai or to Sharjah. I keep coming back to the Holiday Inn in Sharjah, because it is an excellent value at a really reasonable price. The rooms are very big, I mean BIG. I know a lot of hotels and in many even five star hotels you feel there is hardly any space after I placed my six pieces of luggage. Here you feel you have plenty of space. Also the staff are service minded and we got what we needed. The kitchen can certainly improve, and needs to, as it does not keep up with the rest of the standard of the hotel. But when I look at the price and the value I get, I even accept the driving into Dubai and back, and find it worthwhile staying in Sharjah. Sharjah is anyway a very nice place in the UAE! You may have heard of Dubai but not of Sharjah. check it out.

Room Tip: Be a Platinum member and get the suite.

because the service level was to low. All where very friendly but the quality og what staff was doing was low. Minibar was not filled, Internet not working, towls were missing, food menu the same as last time.It seems that the hotel is in need for a big brush up.

Room Tip: Find another hotel

I recommend visitor to Dubai looking for quite and value for money stay to stay here. It,s location is difficult to reach but parking available free of charge. The room is specious with coffee facilities in room. The bed is comfortable. In addition, the breakfast is very good.

Booked this hotel last minute for an overnight layover and it served its purpose. Room was spacious and clean. Service was professional but not beyond the average for most hotels.

Bathroom didn't have as many amenities as expected. The one small bottle of shampoo had obviously been refilled and the refill drip wasn't cleaned away. There's a kettle for tea and coffee but no bottled water.

Location was fine. Everyone takes taxis everywhere anyway as it's just too hot. Included breakfast buffet was ok with western and middle eastern choices - the middle eastern choices were better. The bacon and eggs just didn't look fresh or appetising.

Unlike other Holiday Inns, wifi is not included. If you wanted to use it, it was an extortionate 80 Dhs for 24 hours use.

Stayed for one night and it was fine, but don't think I would book this hotel again.

I had been there before and I came again for two nights. The location is good - only 15 min from Dubai Airport. They do respect a Platinium / Ambassador status and I got a great upgrade to a suite. The room was big and clean, and had a nice view. A few things did not work, but that was fixed fast. Overall good service and for the price it was amazing! Valet parking, free internet, good location if your business is not at the other end of Dubai.
