Stayed at Ibis Al-Barsha from 14th April to 18th April 2014,

Pros :
1) The only good thing about the hotel is Price & Proximity to various business areas of Dubai
2) good Proximity to Sharaf DG metro Station,it takes a good 15-20 min walk to the metro station.(however Ibis Mall of the Emirates is just 10 mins walk to the Mall of the Emirates Metro Station)
3) Free Internet - Though it is intermittent and shuts down frequently.

Cons:
1) cramped,small room,
2) even smaller bathroom
3) no in room amenities (they just have 1 liquid gel kinda thing which you are supposed to use as a shampoo,shower gel, and hand soap)
4) 4 days - same menu for breakfast - no change at all ! !
5) no Room service, no bell boys, etc so if you are hungry in the middle of the night perhaps and you call up the 24hr cafe, you will have to go down to the lobby to pick up the food yourself !
6) The closet if open - no door on the closet, no safe !
7) i can go on.

avoid this hotel if you are a business traveler and travel light.
if you expect your room to have in-room amenities and room service etc Look elsewhere, there are plenty of options available in the same locality.

Room Tip: The rooms with the view of Sheikh Zayed road are quieter and have views of burj al arab.

As I was in dubai for business in this area, i chose to shift hotel from the Airport to "Al Barsha". So ideal placed for Jebel Ali and for the motorway to Abu Dhabi.

the hotel it self is Ibis, nothing new there, there was sportsbar, one can smoke there so not a good experience and there was a small restaurant as well as a cafe. Tried the cafe for breakfast/coffee and a quick dinner. Spotless and fast, even food where tasty.

The room was also small Ibis rooms with small bathroom, nd big and good beed. The Aircon wasn't easy to asjust and quite noisy. Furthermore, in my room at least, the free internet was a little bit shabby, so not easy to work or use tablet.

Nice location, good for business travelers, however for couples and families, I would not recommend at all, as the rooms are very small and in the washrooms you can barely stand ( smallest I have ever seen in any hotel) essential amenities are not provided like slippers, shampoo etc, if you ask for these they bluntly reply with a rude no, stating that we are a business hotel and do not provide these. Staff is professional however a miss on occasions. Does not have a swimming pool or a fitness center.

I stayed at Ibis Al Barsha for 5 Nights between 21 March to 26 March, 2014 with my wife and 5 year old son. This hotel is very well located on sheikh zayad road, near to Sharaf DG metro station, and close to other attractions like Palm Atlantis, Wild Wadi, Bul-al-Arab, Dubai Marina etc. I feel that I really got very good deal for 5 nights in Dubai. This hotel is true value for money in terms of location, cleanliness and service. However, the only thing I wish to change is its monotonous and repeated breakfast buffet for all 5 days. It need to be changed with some variety. Still, I highly recommend this property if you are travelling to Dubai because of its location and value.

Regards,

Amrish Tiwari

I don´t know why this Hotel has only 50% recommendation rate on Tripadvisor.Imho it deserves more appreciation.
I´ve chosen it because of its location close to Dubai Marina,so it should be a good choice for all those,who want to be close to the modern part of the city.
Concerning the hotel itself I was really satisfied with my room.It was clean,quiet and was well equipped.
Also the staff was great-always friendly and welcoming.
I can not also complain about the breakfast.Comparing to other hotels around the world I´ve stayed so far,breakfast served in Ibis Al Barsha was really good and varied.
I´d definitely stayed here again!
