Holiday Inn Express Dubai Airport

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is close to the airport making it a breeze to get cleaned up after long flights and just as easy to return for a flight. The bar/lounge is comfortable along with the great food and service to go with it. Only down fall is that I do not believe this hotel has tubs.

Internet was not good. And thats why I went there.

They overcharged me - at the time of check in I was forced to pay additional money

Very happy with the hotel all around except for the mattress. The bed wasn't very comfortable.

Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent breakfast comes with the room. Good choice for a stay near the airport.

Great hotel for short stays with a close location to the airport. Free shuttle service to and from.

was good and convenient, closed to the airport and shuttle was 24 hours, clean room and cheap

Excellent! I enjoyed the service both Front Desk and the restaurant

The hotel is in a great location - a 5 minute walk from the Emirates metro station which is 1 or 2 stops from the two airport metro stations. This makes it easy to get to unless you are arriving at Terminal 2 which is on the far side of the airfield. Although not near any of the tourist attractions of Dubai, the easy metro access is all you need to get out and about. The hotel offered a better breakfast than domestic HIX locations and included foul medames, an Arabic bean dish that reminds you of where the hotel really is - you would be hard pressed to tell otherwise. My room was quiet (great after an extremely late arrival into Dubai) and comfortable. The staff were helpful and courteous, which included them storing my luggage so that I could enjoy a day in town before my past-midnight flight out.

Bottomline - the service there is first class, the staff among the best! The room is good

I almost always stay here in Dubai while waiting for my flight the next day.

Everytime I fly through Dubai, Holiday Inn Express has been my choice. They accommodate my every needs and always friendly and helpful customer service

It was a very nice stay. When we checked in the staff accomodated our requirements room with sofa-bed because of young kids. The hotel had shuttle to airport every 30 minutes and it was our primary way to travel to airport and then take metro from there to any where in Dubai to for tour. Excellent Morning Breakfast. I can't describe the importance. On the checkout day, we had our flight 8 hours later and hotel had facility to safe-keep luggage after check out. They have good foreign currency exchange and can help you order from restaurants for dinner to be delivered. One last thing, they also have evening shuttle to Freedom Mall where you can go and buy whatever you need during your stay. Excellent Stay and I really want to thank you hotel staff for the great experience!!!

Very nice and clean hotel. Very easy to get to from the airport as a long layover stop. Staff was very nice and helpful.

I loved the Manger he was so nice and made me feel so comfortable while my stay there and the free morning breakfast was awesome.

Smooth check in...helpful desk staff....frequent shuttle buses.....good value.

We are repeat Holiday Inn Express customers, because we don't need all the bells and whistles, just a comfortable bed and a great breakfast.

Holiday Inn at the Dubai Airport was perfectly located and very convenient to both arriving and departing particularly at odd hours. The hotel is exactly as represented and the food choices were both wide and fresh. Excellent value for money.

I booked at the last minute and got a small but very clean and modern room. I would be able to tell you more about it but the lights didn't work so I really couldn't see what was going on. I was only there to sleep so it was no big deal. The staff was courteous and quick. Wifi was horrendously slow. Proximity to the airport is good. I'll stay there again if I have another short layover in Dubai.

Very nice place to stay over my long layover between flight in Dubai. Free airport shuttle to and from. Very nice and very clean room. Free wi fi. Very nice bar, and I had a superb steak sand which and a few beers before going to bed. Terrific service.
