Stayed recently at The Holiday Inn Al Barsha for 4 nights on the recommendion of our travel agent and we were not disappointed. It is evident from the first encounter with staff that the management are first class and all staff are fully trained in their areas.
It was a special occasion for us and Awais at reception ensured that our room allocation represented this and provided flowers and fruit for the room. We had view of Burg al Arab
and Jumeriah Beach hotel from our room on the 5th floor and had no problem with noise from the busy Sheikh Zayed Road.
Taxis are very affordable in Dubai (always use Dubai Taxis) and to travel to the beautiful Madinet Souk area costs in the region of 5 euro, the same to the Dubai Mall and also to Jumeriah beach area. A shuttle bus is also available complimentary twice daily to the beach if required.
The Mall of the Emirates is only 5 minutes walk from the hotel, a shoppers paradise with daily entertainment and fabulous restaurants , it is worth the experience to go there to see all the emirate families together having a fun time... this appears to be a major social occasion for them to visit the malls.
The hotel has very good wifi connection and also there is a business centre downstairs in lobby, we needed to get items printed and the lady at the business desk could not have been more helpful with our needs.
Breakfast is exceptional, with lots of options for everyone's taste, well worth the charge and do try the fabulous omelettes on offer.
Pool area on top of building is small but adequate... nobody goes to Dubai to sit all day in the sun...and loungers become available very quickly... towels are provided and the pool attendants are very pleasant and keeps the area exceptionally clean and tidy.
I would strongly recommend a stay at this hotel, I have stayed in 5 star hotels previously in Dubai and this one is well up there with the best of them. I look forward to our next visit
