“Good value, clean and quiet”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

At the end of the day, an ibis is an ibis. Some people screw their noses up at the hotels but you know what you are going to get. For value and price, this hotel is fine. It's clean and (most) of the staff are friendly. If you just want to use it as a base, it's great. 10 dirham cab ride to the Mall of the Emirates (about $3 AUD/USD). Breakfast buffet quite good although when I was there it was Eid, so very busy. If breakfast isn't included in your room rate, grab a snack at the cafe at the front of the hotel or the Eco friendly shop next door. Bed was very comfy, shower was great - fantastic pressure and room was really quiet. No complaints but only book a hotel like this if you're after a bed for the night, there's nothing to do at the hotel per se. Good for short stopover.

Checking the previous comments, and the manager's promises: nothing has changed: Front desk staff is rude, not recognizing "the customer", unwilling to help, providing false informations, just because they don't have fun to help, the management is not present, is invisible.
"Fake cocktails" in the bar - mojito with unalcoholic rum- but charging 32 AED as per menu.
In the bathroom is stinky even after cleaning (drain smells), the water does not drain in the shower. Reported, but nothing happened.
Only positive is the free wifi,( althaugh is very slow), and the breakfast aside from the same choice every day. I'm still staying in the hotel, the management knows my room number - hopefully.

Dear Guest,

We are most concerned to hear of the issues that you had encountered during your stay at our hotel. The level of service as you have described are certainly not the standards that we are used to here at Ibis Al Barsha.

Having had the opportunity to meet you personally and discuss these points during your stay, we have taken necessary actions to address these issues where required.

We thank you for your comments and hope to see you again soon.

Kind regards,

it was my first time to visit dubai, but i reach easily to the hotel as it has a good location in sheikh zaid road and near to mall of emirates, even it has a small rooms and toilet but it was very good and comfortable for me and my family also i like their 15 minutes services which gurantee that they'll never be late for your requests more that 15 Min.
also we met a friendly staff whom offer help once you asked for it.

Stayed at this hotel in Feb 2013on a business trip, Nice place to stay, Though rooms at Ibis are supposed to be small they are large enough to stay ( I was travelling alone ), Toilets are the typical ibis ones good enuf for a nice warm bath.

Internet connection in the room was good & FREE & the breakfast was a good spread of scrambled eggs, fried rice, Varieties of breads & Fruits ( Please dont expect Indian Dishes here )

Taxis available outside the hotel in the mornings

The only disadvantage was the location as the hotel is about 1 km to the nearest metro station ( Sharaf DG )

Staff was smiling & laundry done neatly as per instructions provided on the request form

Although Ibis is a budget hotel, but this one is an excellent 3 Star hotel with everything you need: clean room, nice breakfast and nice 24hrs food, very nice buffet, easy parking and you can reach any place easily as it is near Mall of Emirates, the palm and Internet City.
Rooms are small but clean.

When asked why Laudary not taken First day reply was You didn,t put Laundary collection tag on room door, Second day excuse You didn,t fill up the form? My concern here why in the first place person in hotel reception didn,t inform the rules. Breakfast is a junk very day same Breakfast menu. Bathrooms are cramped. Dusty roads if metro train passes every 5 minutes there is notable vibrations in my room, no gym, never like to visit this Budget hotel.
