Rated 3,0 out of 5,0 by Delaney Confortable Bed
I have stayed here previously and it is central with comfortable sleeping conditon. However, my recent stay was horrible. The hotel needs to decide if it is a hotel or a night club. the music was very loud both nights and despite a request to lower it....no response. We could not sleep till after 3am. This is not good when you have a 6.30am start for a long flight.
Holiday Inn-this is a very bad show

Rated 2,0 out of 5,0 by Andrew66 Tired hotel......
Many upgrades and modernisations required, especially to the air conditioning in the lobby which was continually attended to by maintenance staff but it never worked properly in the 3 weeks I was there.
The roof top pool was unserviceable for the duration of my stay as the floor was being resurfaced. I was not notified of this when I booked the hotel so it was not good to find out the day after I arrived at the hotel that this would be the case.
Corridors leading to rooms had a peculiar, rather unpleasant smell and were very warm!
Breakfast wasn't brilliant but there was a good selection and the staff were helpful, if not a bit too quick to snatch your plate, cup or glass, or in fact anything else that you had just been eating or drinking from. The plates were snatched away before you had a chance to chew your last fork of food!
Housekeeping staff were a credit to the hotel. My room was kept immaculate every day and the guys were very helpful. Well done.
A lick of paint here and there, and a decent pool where you can swim in the evening instead of being banished from the area unless you wanted to drink and smoke!
Franchised bars were awful!
Not for me thanks.

Rated 2,0 out of 5,0 by dennyl123 charged me twice.
I reserved this room on or about 26 november 2013. This holiday inn put a hold on my credit card. After I stayed there on the 23rd of December I payed with the same credit card. They charged my the hold fee along with the room fee. I would like the hold fee reimbursed. I called the hotel on Jan 13, 2014 and spoke with a person at the front desk and he assured me he would address the person responsible for the credit card charges about this issue, with no results. I have stayed at this motel several times with great experiences. I will continue to stay there if this gets resolved.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by VanDweller Great location
Booked this last minute, was hoping for point breaks or last-minute sale but it didn't work out. Great location near the subway and Al Rigga street (lots of shops/restaurants), can reasonably walk to the creek or even the gold souk. A nice way to end mid-east trip with the locals in the area, mall-ing it up, going to the souk, grabbing some juice, eating at local restaurants. They gave me an upgrade to executive suite and juice (Muslim country) as an IHG member, as well as checking in at 11am and out at 4pm!!
Only detractors: toilet got slow/clogged at one point for a while; creepy guy on the next building over's rood blatantly staring at me while sunbathing on the roofdeck pool area (I was wearing reasonably conservative tank top/shorts). I covered up and went inside. Thought it would be ok to suntan but I guess not.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by gasman Quite enjoyable
My wife and I stayed here on my Reward points. I had to insist that Breakfast WAS included as per my Platinum membership status and the advertisement of the hotel. We were very happy with the position of this location as it was most convenient for good eating establishments and the commuting by Train to most destinations of interest. We were allocated room 720, the room was quite comfortable and clean and the only thing we were a little disappointed with was the loud music late into the night. This wasn't too much of a problem as we didn't feel tired till around midnight. Be aware that this Hotel is situated In a back street and therefore there 'isn't a room with a view'. You can sunbathe comfortably on the roof around the pool. I believe this area is in need of updating a little, but as we didn't pay for our stay we weren't disappointed. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED is speaking to Anthony Joy the concierge on duty, he is very knowledgeable and so helpful and tries his very best to help you enjoy your stay and gives very good advice on surrounding restaurants. The internet was activated by a code obtained from reception, free to platinum members, however it took me four attempts and codes to access. Recommend buying a SILVER NOL CARD at the railway/tube station and you will enjoy Dubai as much as we did. Beware that there are 'LADIES DAYS' at the beach when men will be refused access to the beach, ask at Hotel for guidance, again ask JOY. We did see Holidayinn nearer the Emirates Mall, but we thought the location of this downtown site was much more convenient. The housekeeping staff were very attentive and provided ample supplies of tea/coffee/milk/water etc.

Rated 3,0 out of 5,0 by casscat Beware, map is incorrect
Hotel OK. Beware that map on Holiday Inn / IHG website is incorrect, showing this hotel to be 1 mile nearer to Downtown Deira than it actually is. Official map shows hotel near to Baniyas Metro Station, whereas hotel is in fact near Al Rigga Metro station. Good benefit of this hotel is its location close to the (excellent and cheap) Metro network.

Rated 3,0 out of 5,0 by ve1705 Friendly staff, good location, poor breakfast
Stayed there 1 night, pretty good location (about 5 minutes walk to Metro Station Al Rigga). Everything like supermarket, shopping center, etc. in the near. Staff recognized me as IHG PRC/RC member during check-in, therefore welcome drink (very nice!). Room was clean, however not too spacious. Breakfast was poor, for me that was rather HI-EX and nothing comparable to another HI or Mercure. At that day my shower was broken but repaired within 1 hour. Pillow and mattress were very comfortable, furnitures are OK. No European Standard power plug in the room available (only three pins UK). AC was working very well (this is no.1# criteria in Dubai where daily temperature at night mostly > 35°C).
The worst experience in this hotel is either I got downgraded from executive class room to tiny standard room or staff just didn't recognize the price I paid (loss value about 100 AED ~ 20 Euro or about 25 USD). I myself forgot to mention it since I never printed out a booking confirmation, supposing that they should have known it since it is a prepaid rate. I use to have a simple & 'paperless' travel - we're in the 21st century where everything can be done electronically. When I tried to explain that in the reception during check-out, one of the staff meant that executive and standard rooms are the same, and since the prepaid rate I paid was cheaper than the daily normal rate (of course...): no refund.
Verdict: book the cheapest rate as possible (< 300 AED / night) or don't go for it and take the breakfast somewhere else.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by Sammyspud Excellent Service and Fantastic Location
Recently returned from a 5 night break at this lovely hotel which was perfect throughout the stay .
My wife arrived earlier than myself and was collected promptly by the Hotels transport cost 75EAD ($22) on entering the main reception you are greeted by valet who then helped with the bags .great service thank you to both valet staff working in the evenening and early morning when I arrived very professional and very helpfull.
Check in was excellent and the the room was fantastic imaculate and well stocked , a grand double bed which was more than comfortable. The facilities in room included hairdryer, tea and coffee facilities flat screen TV and mini bar . good sized wardrobe with plenty of storage and complimentary bathrobes for stay . and good selection of complimentary toiletries .
we had the room only option and this was excellent value however was offered complimentary breakfast for the duration of our stay as a platinum elite memeber, the food was good freshly prepared with a choice of fresh juices, fresh fruit , toast, a limited warm selection plus tea &coffee.
service in restaurant was very good with plenty of cheerfull helpful staff who really looked after us.
we never tried tried the massage but it always seemed very popular
the pool is small but big enough and was able to have cocktails brought to the poolside.
couldnt get any better this hotel is very well situated located close to the Metro which we would highly recommend. Checking out was effortless we can honestly say all of the staff we met during our stay were consistenlty helpfull , friendly and proffessional .
Room Tip: request higher room for better comfort and quietness.
Thank you also to the General Manager SAAD who was brilliant and couldnt be any more helpfull.

Some of the workers are excellently good while some are racist and some do not value your status weather Gold or Platinum,I was shabbily treated and recently, precisely on the 2nd of September I requested for priority check in despite some staff appeal to the superior officer on duty, he was adamant that I would have to pay a sum,I had to leave for another where I was not a card member not to say a platinum member that i am,I was checked in promptly ,I have vouched not to have anything doing with holiday inn Al Rigga Downtown, again, it was a bad experience, they should learn from other countries like holiday inn Shifu Guangzhou china,holiday inn Ariel Llondon and others

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by warde1 Nice spot to stay Downtown....
The hotel is well worth the affordable price for being downtown in Dubai. The hotel has many restaurants close by as well as active night life inside and out of the hotel. The hotel is great for someone into night life as I am. But, music for the nightclub inside the hotel may not be for everyone.
