“Excellent Hotel”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

Recently stayed for 3 nights before going to stay with a friend. Hotel was gorgeous and staff very friendly. It's in a great central location with the mall only 10 minutes walk away. There's a lovely rooftop terrace with a bar and a small pool.
The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. Couldn't fault the hotel at all!

I stayed in this hotel for a week, noting more to ask, pleasant stay, staff, center of Sh Zayed Road and also to the internet city. Hotel has an advantage a) closer to a metro station - a few minutes walk and b) walkable distance to Dubai Mall, c) 15 minutes metro ride to Burj Khalifa. Breakfast is very good, with lot of vegetarian options.

I Stayed At This Hotel In March For 2 Nights In March. From The Time I Arrived In The Hotel I Received A Great Welcome. Although I Arrived Early It Was Not A Problem. My Room Was Excellent. The Location Is Great Just A Few Minutes Walk To The Metro. I Had Breakfast And Dinner At The Hotel, Both Were Excellent. I Would Like To Thank Mr Asantha The Manager For Making Me Feel So Welcome And Also Lalat (Captain) Who Looked After Me At Dinner. You Should Be Proud Of Your Hotel, It Is The Best That I Have Stayed In! See You Soon.

We stayed for 5 nights at The Holiday Inn, as a group of 4 couples celebrating a friend's 50th in March 2014. We were room only at the Holiday Inn but the staff couldn't be more attentive - particular thanks goes to Younus on the front desk who gave us 5* service throughout our stay... nothing was ever too much trouble.

The hotel's location is perfect for exploring all of the main sites. During our 5 night stay as a group, we managed to pull in lots of activities including, dune bashing, skiing (Ski Dubai in the Mall of Emirates), golfing and bowling - together with relaxing by the pool, sightseeing and shopping in both the malls and the souqs.

The Mall of Emirates is just a 7 minute walk away from hotel. Taxis are cheap to explore other areas - the coloured roofed ones tend to be cheaper than the white "limo" taxis. If you get the opportunity, grab a taxi to the Karama Souq, famous for it's "genuine copies" of Mulberry, Ralph Lauren, etc.

We were lucky enough to be travelling with friends who had visited Dubai a few times before so knew the best areas to visit. Our first night was spent in the area around the Burj Khalifa, which is a magnificent piece of architecture. We also visited the marina and the Burj Al Arab area on other evenings - all worth a trip in a taxi.

Mine and my husband's highlight has to be the dune bashing though - if you get the opportunity, go!

In summary, an excellent time was had by us all. We will certainly stay at the Holiday Inn the next time we visit Dubai.

Room Tip: We had a 6th floor room looking out over the main carriageway but did not find it too noisy and had...

The Holiday Inn is in a decent area with the Mall of the Emirates and a metro station just a few minutes away. My room was large and clean with nice amenities, but my view wasn't great (a large dirt square). The breakfast was tasty. I didn't visit any of the restaurants or any other facilities.
