Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by estravada 2nd stay in 3 days
This is my review of my 2nd stay within the next 3 days. I have already experienced staying in the Standard Room and Executive Room. So, this time, I booked the 2 bedroom suites.
Check in was quicker, but again, nothing was prepared ahead of time. No upgrade given as I believed the 2 bedroom suite is the highest level of room.
Unfortunately, was not impressed with the suite. You have the living hall and 2 bedrooms with individual toilets in each room. But the room and toilet are much smaller as compared to the Standard/Executive Room. Would recommend to go with 2 rooms of Standard/Executive Room instead unless you have a family and wants them to stay together.
The amenities in the suite is also disappointing as they are just the same used in the Standard/Executive Room. It does not gives a premium experience at all although it is supposed to be a suite and the highest price room. I have stayed in other HI suites before and the experience is definitely much better.
On another note, there is a rooftop bar on the top most floor of the hotel, where you can see the Burj Al Arab in full view.
Overall, I would still recommend to stay in this hotel based on my past experience, but avoid the suites. There is nothing premium/special about the suites except for the additional living hall. The premium price that you are paying extra is just not worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Janne68 Only one thing
The overall experience was really great with just one complaint. One of the wineglasses in our room couldn't have been checked for a while because someone had used it and then it wasn't changed. Who knows for how long it had stood there.
Otherwise it was a very pleasant experience to stay at this hotel. The closeness to the Emirates Mall and to the metrostation was very god. Just a few minutes walk each way.
My wife is a smoker so she thought it was a burden to either go down to the lobby or up to the roof to smoke. She thought It would have been nice with balconys.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by estravada Great stay
This is my 3rd stay in Holiday Inn Al-Barsha.
Great stay as usual, with spacious Executive Rooms and Nice Breakfast.
Just a note on the check in which takes a long time as compared to other HI. No documents were prepared ahead and it is just like any normal check in regardless of status. For Elite members, this should be prepared much ahead and nobody realizes that you are a Elite member until the card is shown. It is a shame since the booking is made online through IHG and the status should have already been mentioned. I have even email the hotel ahead since I have made arrangements for the transportation..
Other than that, no complains. Having another stay in a few days time and will come back on the review.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kenbe Fantastic hotel great value
I highly recommend the Holiday Inn Al Barsha for its location near the Mall of the Emirates, polite and very professional staff and friendly and helpful concierge. The room was spacious and comfortable and very clean. The staff was very responsive to our requests, it was never a problem to ask for anything. We had a lovely trip in Dubai thanks to an excellent hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gayle57 Quality check in and great service
Our flight was delayed by 3 hours and we had scheduled airport pickup. Our driver was there waiting for us, it was such a relief.
We arrived at the hotel at 2:00 a.m. Noor checked us in. What a nice young man! He was so helpful. Explained everything to us about our room and reservations. We used rewards points for part of our stay, and we were worried we would have to check out and check in again. He assured us it would all be okay. He was working every night we were there and was always courteous. Asking how our vacations was going, asking if we had questions or concerns.
Our room was very nice, housekeeping kept it clean and stocked which we appreciated.
Overall our stay was great. Would recommend Holiday Inn Al Barsha.

Holiday Inn Al Barsha consistently exceeds all expectations. From the moment I stepped out of my cab, the first class service begins. Helped with my luggage, I then had a quick, courteous, and efficient check-in. The room was comfortable (and the upgrade truly appreciated).
The staff make special efforts to ensure you enjoy your stay. From Housekeeping to the staff at the bars and restaurants, everyone is friendly and helpful. And, don't forget the Concierge team, who take a special pride in helping out with all requests and details.
Located near the Mall of Emirates and the Metro is a bonus, as well.
I recommend Holiday Inn Al Barsha for business travels as well as place to relax!
