Hotel location is very convenient. Mr. Gautham (male receptionist) is very professional and helpful. He checked me in smoothly and provided a exceptional services. The breakfast is not much option. The room is clean Everything was good. It was a pleasant stay.

I stayed in this hotel for 1 night as it was close to my next day business meetings in Dubai. The hotel had a good pricing compared to hotels nearer the Dubai city center. Room was ok, The only thing I hated was the fact that in the bathroom they had this soap dispenser that is used as a 1 for 3 solution. Soap, body soap, and shampoo. I mean how much does it cost for the hotel to have the traditional soap, shower gel, and shampoo? Breakfast was ok typical Holiday Inn Express style. Staff was great. I had forgotten my mobile phone at the breakfast table and when I went back they had kept it for me! If you stay there take a small walk to the Dubai Waterfall, especially at night and see how the waterfall opens when a boat is passing under the bridge. Hotel is in a very quite area (maybe too quite). If you need action maybe you should look elsewhere..

Nice clean hotel and very polite and helpful staff. Had been there for 8 days with my husband and daughter. They also had a lovely sofa bed in the room for my daughter... plus points for that. however there was a bit of a problem with the hot water in the shower. Overall great hotel.

This is definitely a 2star hotel. It provides the basics and that is it. Staff were friendly and checkin was smooth, but it was very disappointing to find out that our reserved interconnecting rooms were on the smoking floor. They do not have interconnecting rooms on other floors which is a bit strange considering that most people wanting interconnecting rooms would be young families. The floor stunk of smoke but the rooms were less smelly: however they were musty and the bed linens and pillows smelled of damp. Serious freshness issues need to be addressed. The express breakfast buffet was 'limited' as advertised, but has the basics. On the plus side it is very close to Dubai Mall.

The hotel is nice, the rooms are spacious and clean. It is about 15-20 min drive from Kite beach. Free wifi in the rooms. The breakfast is the same everyday, perhaps they should diversify it a little. i was there for 8 nights, and in the end it was tiring of eating the same food. It was fresh though. You couldn't open the windows, which was a little disappointing. Overall great value for the money.

The Hotel is nice - rooms are not new but in very good condition. Staff is very polite and helpful. Free WiFi at the Hotel. Rooms are big enough and clean, beds are comfortable. The only issue I had is not perfect soundproofing - I could hear some loud sounds/voices fro the corridors. Every day cleaning service - few bottles of water is for free. There is safe and fridge in the room. There is kettle, tea, sugar and coffee on the table. Good location - just few minutes from Business bay metro station by foot. There are some shops around metro station. There is small gym on the 5th floor. No swimming pool but this is ok Express. Coffee "bus" with several types of coffee is just outsde the hotel. On TV only one Russian Channel I found but anyway I did not have time for TV so there was not a problem. Breakfat is good - some hot dishes (eggs, meat, beans, popato etc.), juices, cookies, tea, coffee. I had halfboard so I had diner at the same hotel - Dishes are good, big portions, some stuff is spicy for me but it is quite personal. There is Mexican Restaurant at the same hotel but I did not go inside. There are free shuttle bus to Dubai mall and to Kite beach once per day. There is City Walk area and Canal with Waterfall during evening/night (like 3 minures from the Hotel) not far. Due to the Hotel location close to the city centre it is close to everywhere - 30-50 Dirhams to most of the touristic places. Area itself is quiet - good for families with children. It is possible to Exchange dollars to dirhams at reception desk for the first time. Personally I would recommend this hotel thanks to its location, price and good staff.

Looked for a basic business traveler hotel. Hotel was fine, check-in very friendly and efficient Room was good size and beds / sheets are good. Good size TV Breakfast was ok However; I specifically ordered a none-smoking room, my IHG member preferences state 'None smoking room' and I asked again when checking in... but.. I got a smoking room with the ashtray in the middle of the table and the room smelling of smoke (not really badly but still noticeable). Also the room itself was not the cleanest with dust in the corners and a hair in the shower.

The hotel itself was clean, staff were friendly and the breakfast was OK, but it's a bit out the way. There isn't really anything nearby, and the metro is a good 10 minute walk away, which isn't fun for people not used to the heat. I am not 100% sure, but I believe it's not considered a 'central' Dubai hotel, so a lot of the tours operators might not be able to pick you up directly from the hotel. This means you'd likely need to taxi to and from another hotel or pick up point.

the place is very near to dubai center, the hotel staff are nice specialy the room boy he is very acomodating.. the place is very comfortable and relaxing.. the wifi is good and transpo is readily available if u dont have car.. there is a car lift available

stayed in this on the way out to Australia just for 3 nights..It was very well priced.. Breakfast was included. Airport transport is there but you must book before hand. Free private parking is on site.must be booked though.Wifi and internet is FREE in the hotel and rooms.The rooms was twin beds and was comfortable,certainly did us for three nights and taxis are very cheap to anywhere.we went to the Khalifa,Dubai Mall,Dubai Marina Mall.Glow Gardens at night and Miracle Flower gardens and the Jumirah Beach by the Burj hotel.nice photos there as its now the public beach, it wasn't a few years ago that was a lot further away. for a few days l would recommend this hotel. Staff were lovely. Feb. we went and have just got back thats why its 8 weeks ago.
