Holiday Inn Dubai - Al Barsha

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed just 2 nights and it was fine for a stop over. This hotel is very clean, the rooms were quite a good size, nicely decorated, and the pool on the roof was very welcome. It is close to the malls and to the train station. It has a nice rooftop bar. The staff were very helpful at all times. We enjoyed our stay as it was close to all that we wanted.

The hotel is located half way between "new" Dubai/marina and downtown/mall/Burj Kahlifa. If you're a tourist, you're going to be hitting both of those areas so this is a good compromise. Dubai doesn't have any real central area to base out of so everything is going to involve taxi rides (honest, everywhere, and not that expensive). The metro does go right along the main highway and has a stop near the hotel, but once you get off the metro there are still huge distances to walk to get anywhere. I thought taxis were definitely the way to go although we did make sure to avoid rush hour. The area around the hotel isn't particularly appealing from a tourist standpoint. We ate breakfast at the hotel--it was expensive but had an excellent selection and was a great way to start the day. The front desk staff was welcoming and very helpful. Rooms were clean and functional. For the price, I would definitely stay here again.

All the staff working at the hotel were super friendly and realy took care of us. Fresh nice rooms, good breakfast and a nice enviroment. The Water park in Abu dhabi and the sand safari were one of the highlights. So far definetly the best hotel service out of all the places we have been staying at. Thank you Holiday inn!

Wonderful and memorable stay. Easily accessible location with parking. Quick checkin and Mansoor was welcoming. Also received a fruit basket in the room. Room was spacious and toilet with ample toiletries. Didnt get to try the breakfast eventhough its part of the booking. Recommended to stay.

Stayed from 4th May to 7th May 2017 with family 2 bedroom suite was spacious enough breakfast spread was good, but the restaurant is small tried The Royal Budha, Thai food on the first night & the Indian food 'Gharana' on the second, the food was good friendly staff at the reception, including their Manager Mr. Soumya

We have been coming to this hotel now for 7 years and it's just fantastic. The staff are so welcoming, friendly and helpful. I can't imagine going anywhere else, the hotel is situated near the Mal of the Emirates, close to the Metro system, a short taxi ride from the Madinat Souk you can see the tallest building from the rooftop terrace along with many other landmarks just perfect for sightseeing or just relaxing.

my family and I stayed this hotel in April of 2016 it is an excellent hotel the room are nice and clean do not here any noise also close to the mall of the Emirates within 3 blocks and if you are travel with kids this is the place plenty for kid from water to amusement

I stayed for 2 nights and I loved the room and the service from reception to room service and the quietness of it all. Very close to emirates Mall and the metro station If I am ever in Dubai again I'll definitely go there!

The room was perfect, excellent food at the restaurant.. Pretty good view from the roof bar. Perfect service and in a excellent place at Dubai, a lot of thing to do around. I was from business and I didn't need to care about transportation, always taxis outside.

The location of the hotel is just 200m from the metro, and this was good for us because we used the metro to explore Dubai. The services of the hotel and his staff was excellent and the breakfast is wonderful.
