I've been to Dubai before but this time I wasn't going to have a lot of down time so my needs were simple. Comfy room, breakfast, free internet and free car parking.
The Holiday Inn supplied all of these. I arrived tired and was told to park in the underground car park which, although isn't designed for large vehicles, is free. The staff saw I was tired and help speed things through check-in, even arranging for an iron and ironing board for me.
The room was fairly spacious and comfy, especially the bed where you had a choice of soft and firm pillows. Wireless internet was free, although you should check as my reservation said it wasn't.
Breakfast was pretty good but they rotate the hot food every other day so if you're there for 6 days you will see the same hot food every second day!
Its easy to get food delivered to the hotel, plus just across the street is a subway and Domino's pizza for those times when all you want is to chill out in the comfort of your room.
Probably the thing I remember most was actually the guard at the car park barrier as he always leaned out the window with a massive smile and a loud hello, and believe me, after a tough work day a small welcome like that can't help but bring a smile to your face.
I really can't fault the hotel at all as I got a great flight / hotel rate through Expedia that I couldn't touch anywhere else. Would I stay there again, of course!.
Spacious clean rooms, good service. I surely recommend this hotel for those who are traveling to Dubai. There's a 24-hour café that is excellent for latecomers. This hotel is situated in an excellent location close to shopping malls and sightseeing places. All in all, an excellent option for a fair price.
we enjoyed our stay in this hotel. we were upgraded to a one bed room suite... and it was truly fantastic. the staff are great and try there best to make your stay as comfortable as they can. multiple options for dining in the hotel.... especially atrium was great. good gym and excellent view from the Jacuzzi.
