I stayed three nights in Holiday Inn during a 3day business trip last June. The hotel is modern and stylishly decorated. The rooms very clean, tidy and spatious - and internet was available for free in decent browsing speed (there is available higher speed against extra charge). The breakfast excellent, whilst the dinner buffee was ok (a lot of various dishes to choose, but medium quality - simply ok to fill your hunge).
The location of the hotel is convenient - on the Airport Avenue - easy access to the airport - however far from any sights and action. So recommended for business travellers and not tourists.
The so called spa is nothing special and the top floor bar is not to even consider. However the shisha bar next to the lobby certainly deserves a visit.
Actually this would have been a 5mark - excellent hotel, had it not been for several cases of misscommunication with the front desk service. Many of the people working in the reception have below average english skills, and additionally there were a couple cases when I asked for something, they agreed to look upon it, and they tottally forgot - two times.
So to the management: Upgrade your front desk people and you will have in your hands a 5star-worthy hotel.
To the travelers: If you are not interested in sight-seeing which is hardened by the location of the hotel, this is an excellent choise - clean, stylish, good breakfast, spatious rooms, free internet - just be patient with the front desk people.
As a tip, make sure to fold your clothes together before leaving the room, my PJs shorts went missing - probably thrown to the laundry together with the bed sheets and never recovered
