Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 365 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by a good place for an overnight stay Room was clean and comfortable, albeit small. Breakfast was a delight. Shuttle bus came as scheduled. July 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Stay I did enjoy this hotel, but would like to see more western food choices in their restaurant. The hotel room was clean and very nice and relaxing. Enjoyed my stay. Except the food. Not real big on the food. It was a little bit strange. July 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent stop over choice We used this hotel for a Dubai stop over consisting of a 2 night stay. The hotel met all of our requirements. Friendly staff a very good breakfast room. Clean and comfortable rooms with very good beds and plenty of wardrobe space. July 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Better Services Overall was a good stay. Hotel facilities and room facilities were clean. Will be good to have staff to carry the bags. And can look into having vegetarian dished for buffet. July 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MIKE WADE I LIKE THIS HOTEL BECAUSE ITS CLOSE TO THE AIRPORT the food and beverages are too expensive July 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Stay Overall my stay was enjoyable! The hotel staff were professional. July 2, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dirty Bed Linen I have stayed at this facility on other occasions without any major issues; however, this time I discovered the bed comforter had a foul smell comparable to someone's body odor when I went to lay down to sleep. The smell was actually overpowering. I called the front desk, and a manager and another employee came to my room within 10 minutes; however, instead of immediately changing the comforter and bed linen, the manager had to smell the comforter first. Once he did that, he apologized to me and told the other employee to change the linen. Everything was finished within 30 minutes. I still found myself dozing on the loveseat, since I couldn't get that smell out of my head. They did provide me with 2 extra bottles of water for my inconvenience, if that counts for anything at 10:00 PM when you planning to be asleep because of an early flight departure the following morning. Dinner in the restaurant was very good. The service at the restaurant was excellent also. I was very pleased with it. The front desk employees were very friendly and helpful. No recognition as an IHG member on this stay. The free wireless internet would not allow Skype or Magic Jack calls this visit. June 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Helpful reception staff and great free airport shuttle bus We are a mature and retired couple and stayed here overnight on a trip from Venice to Sydney. Considering the late hour of our arrival we were very pleased with the helpful efficient airport shuttle and processing of our booking by the pleasant reception staff. This is the second time we have stayed at Holiday Inn Express and on both occasions have been impressed by the clean rooms and nice breakfast. The location is close to the Airport but we did not notice any airport noise. It is very handy for those having an early flight departure time. June 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very comfortable stay and highly recommend Very nice friendly hotel, good value for money. Room very clean and comfortable. June 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Honest travellers opinion I stayed for a short time en-route to the Maltese Islands, I used this stay as a moment to rest and gain some much needed sleep after a long flight from Australia. i wanted to arrive in Malta reasonably refreshed and able to go about my holiday without the usual jet lag and inability to enjoy myself. The Holiday Inn Express at the Dubai Airport met all of my expectations and more, I will be staying again in the future and will be recommending the Holiday Inn Express to all of my friends and relatives. I thank all the staff for their professional yet friendly assistance and look forward to seeing them again. June 27, 2014

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Comfy sleep If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing sleep, without any amenities, then this is your place. No place outside of the hotel to walk to. 15 minutes to the nearest night life and restaurants. The hotel has a bar and restaurant, however the food is not what you would expect from american cooks/restaurants. The bartenders were entertaining and helpful. June 23, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very spacious room and very comfortable This was an overnight stay for me while travelling from London to Brisbane Australia. The room was very spacious compared to what I had just experienced throughout Europe and in London. The bed was very large and very comfortable. A perfect place to stay for proximity to Dubai Airport and comfort. Free shuttle to the airport was very convenient. June 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for a long layover This hotel is perfect for those that have an over-night layover at DXB. The free breakfast, free internet (for IHG Rewards),and especially the free DXB shuttle make this perfect. The shuttle to DXB terminals 1 June 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very friendly staff and enjoyable experience We were at the Hotel Inn Express for a few days and were really impressed with it. It was our first time in Dubai and we really enjoyed our stay in the hotel. The hotel is just 5 to 10minutes from the airport. It was very neat and well presented and the staff were always so friendly and helpful. One particular name that stands out is Leizl who is the staff member that attends at the Food and Beverage section. She was very professional and you could tell she loves what she does, we were very impressed. We would definitely stay at the hotel again and beyond the shadow of a doubt I know anyone that goes there will also have a great experience. June 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel for the price The location to airport was great and dinner was good also each day. The ATM Machine is a plus and the bar/Lounge very nice. Room was excellent and will inquire about the same room for my next stay. June 14, 2014

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great hotel for those waiting for transit I had been traveling for 19 hrs on an airplane... I was meeting a connection early next morning. I was debating if I wanted to get a room or if I wanted to save the money and tough it out... I chose this hotel due to its closeness. I didn't want to travel very far. I am glad I got the room. It gave me the time needed to relax and unwind. The staff was excellent and very helpful. So.. I highly recommend it. June 10, 2014
